Newly improved from TEC, the Patio FR series of grills is back and better than ever! Featuring an innovative grilling system capable of cooking from a searing hot 900 degrees Fahrenheit, down to a low 200 degrees, great for low-heat smoking, searing, and everything in between. The TEC Patio FR 44-inch natural gas grill cooks with 100 percent infrared energy with no hot or cold spots, eliminating hot air and reducing moisture loss in food by up to 35 percent. Two fuel efficient 30,000 BTU burners use less fuel than other grills, saving you money on gas. Convenient electronic ignition supplies a reliable spark to ignite the burners safely. TEC uses a patented flare-proof stainless steel infrared burner system combined with a radiant glass emitter panel, resulting in tender, juicy, charbroil flavored food. The position of the stainless steel cooking grates, radiant glass panels, and infrared burners creates even heat distribution across the cooking surface and virtually eliminates flare-ups. The 592 square inch cooking surface is covered by unique, U-shaped cooking grates which heat very quickly, delivering restaurant-style sear marks on your food. A stainless steel heat zone separator sits between the burners, which allows you to cook food simultaneously using different temperatures. The separator prevents heat from spilling over to the other side, allowing you to cook using indirect heat. TEC Patio grills are capable of heating up to 900 degrees in 10 minutes with the hood closed, making long preheating times are a thing of the past. The need for a side burner is also eliminated because you can place your pots or pans on the cooking grids or radiant panels to heat and cook like on an indoor cooktop. Enjoy quick and easy cleanup, with a self-cleaning cooking surface that incinerates food and debris in 10-15 minutes while the grill is on high. Handcrafted in America, this 44-inch freestanding grill features a double-lined hood and thick gauge, 304 grade stainless steel with chrome control knobs on a black pedestal base. All TEC grills are CSA certified.
