This ceramic grill is derived from an ancient ceramic clay cooker with few modern improvements. In particular, in place of traditional clay, Big Green uses cutting edge contemporary ceramics developed specifically for Big Green cookers. These ceramic grills are made in five sizes – extra large, large, medium, small and mini EGG, to fit exactly your outdoor cooking needs. All the grills feature Fast Lighting, so you can start cooking in 10 minutes with no lighter fluid. Ceramic walls retain heat evenly and at precise temperature, while the grill outside surface stays cooler and is safer around children than metal grills. You can also grill at any weather, even in freezing temperatures and rain. Big Green ceramic grills – the EGGs. See also Kamado ceramic grills.
