Element by Fuego barbecue is the first creation of the partnership between Fuego and Vinotemp.
The sleek minimalist grill offers 4 cooking options, patent-pending technology, smart design aesthetics and 4 color options.
The Element is basically a scaled-down version of the Fuego 01 and is also created by Robert Brunner, a former industrial designer for Apple.
The grill has a stainless steel body and cast iron grilling surface. And being only 27 inches wide helps to fit into smaller spaces. A single knob controls the powerful 24,000 BTU dual-zone gas burner for direct or indirect cooking.
The enamel lid turns it into a convection roasting oven, while optional $80 pizza stone or $130 griddle plate transforms the Element by Fuego into a pizza oven or a griddle.
Fuego / Vinotemp partnership plans the entire product line, that should be available soon, combining Fuego modern design and patented technology with Vinotemp mass distribution and retail channel partnerships. Element should be available in May, 2009.
The stainless Element 01 is expected to be priced at around $600, while the silver Element 02, and white or red Element 03 will be sold for $400.
