Fire Magic 317651
FireMagic Grills are consistanty rated highly both by review sites and by consumers.
They are known for their superior design, consistent heat, and durability.
Unlike most of their Grill Manufacturers- they dont make appliances..nor have they shifted production to China. They have been making professional quality grills since 1937 - right here in America!
They have always been known for cooking well, and until recently had left the beauty awards to others, well that has changed. FireMagic still cooks better than any other grill - but now also looks nicer than others too.
FireMagic grills achieve higher temperatures than other grills.
Grill manufacturers like to focus on btu's per burner, but not in relation to the overall grilling surface area. FireMagic grills achieve the perfect balance of heat and control.
Even Heat Distribution
Part of a their system to ensure even heat distribution are their Stainless Steel Burners, there are no hot spots or cold spots. This allows you to cook evenly along the entire surface area.
Flavor grids, Depth of firebox, and their cooking grids add to the perfect grilling experience.
Shallow Depth Backburner
FireMagic grills burners are made from Stainless Steel, not ceramic. This creates more room for your food and wont crack under the heat.
Their 12" deep firebox and tall hood, offers a multitude of rotisserie cooking options, up to 20" in diameter.
Lights Every Time
The advanced ignition system ensures quick and easy ignition, everytime.
Aurora uses battery operated electronic ignition.
Echelon and Aurora both feature push to light technology.
Cast Stainless Burners
Their Cast Stainless Steel E Burners are 4-5 times thicker than others and are guaranteed for life! Interior baffling and Air Shutters give precision control of the gas to ensure an even burn.
Flare Ups are History
Stainless Steel Flavor Grids vaporize the liquids that cause flare ups.
Several grill manufacturers have this feature, - only FireMagic gets hot enough to actually do this. Flavor grids get red hot - producing infra-red waves.
Heavy Stainless Cooking Grids
Heavy Duty, Stainless Steel cooking grids are burnished, giving them a virtually non stick surface without a "coating" that can wear off.
They are also spaced close together so your food won't fall through while you're cooking.
The grids cover over 50% of the cooking space, this contributes to even temperature across the cooking surface, eliminating those hot and cold spots.
12 Deep Firebox
Other Grills are 6-8" Deep. Why is theirs so much deeper?
First, you can put a bigger piece of meat on your rotisserie. But most important, its part of a unified system to ensure consistency of cooking through the grill surface.
It also puts your flavor grids farther from the cooking surface so when solid food drops on it an burns, you have less of a chance it will burn your food.
Digital Temperature Gauge
Other Grills put a thermometer in the hood - not smart. They have digital probes at each cooking zone - at the cooking surface.
Feather Light Hood
Double Wall Stainless Steel hoods are heavy. Their hoods are perfectly balanced and spring assisted so you can open the largest hood with one finger. Remote Power Hoods are also available on Echelons.
Rotisserie Rod Storage
It sounds simple, but sometimes the simple things make life much easier. Behind the hood, they have a storage place for the rotisserie rod.
Another simple idea, bumpers for the hood - front and rear. This prevents much of the metal to metal contact, so when you close the lid, it sounds like a fine auto door closing.
Integrated into every Echelon. They are angled for optimum results. Lights shut off when you close the grill lid and go on when you open. (Except for grills with the Magic Window)
Other Grill Manufacturers Measure Differently - be careful when comparing
Fire Magic takes their cooking grids, aligns them together - and measures...giving you the dimension of the primary cooking space. Others grill manufacturers measure the exterior of their grill - some the side shelf to side shelf.
What you will find is their 30" grill is larger than most other 36" grills.
Independent Cook Zones
FireMagic grills provide consistency of cooking and allow you to create cook zones. Echelons take it up a notch with zone dividers - to enhance your ability to create independent zones.
Large, curved viewing area - allows for ample view inside grill.
