TEC Quality – 100% 304 Stainless Steel American Construction
Paradise Outdoor Kitchens TEC grills owner feedback shows that over 90% of TEC owners would recommend a TEC grill to a friend – and thousands have! But that’s understandable. TEC’s patented infrared grilling systems preserve the natural flavor and moisture of food, while imparting an authentic charbroil taste. Now in your own home you can experience the tender, juicy taste of 100% infrared grilling offered by many of the top restaurants in the world. We’re certain that you’ll become a believer, too. After all, who knows more about infrared grilling than TEC – they invented it.
The TEC Advantage
TEC’s Revolutionary New Flare-Proof, Infrared Burner System
- Specially configured stainless steel burners distribute heat evenly, eliminating hot and cold spots, so every square inch of cooking area is available for grilling.
- High temperature glass panels radiate infrared energy, shield food from moisture robbing hot air, and vaporize drippings into flavor enhancing smoke.
- Stainless cooking grates are placed directly on the radiant glass panels to prevent air flow at the grilling surface and eliminate flareups.
Built-in and Freestanding Grills, people who first experience a TEC grill use the same or similar words to describe the difference – moist, juicy, tender. Of course, they are talking about the taste of the food, and there is a scientific reason why TEC grills preserve the maximum amount of moisture and natural flavor of food and other grills cannot.
Everything in nature is surrounded by a moisture boundary – a stagnate layer of air and water molecules. Infrared or radiant energy can penetrate this boundary without disturbing it, directly transferring its energy to the food with minimum moisture loss. Because food retains more of its own natural juices, it remains tender and juicy. Grills that use hot air to cook dry out food because hot air cannot penetrate food without disturbing the moisture boundary, and once this boundary layer is disturbed, the food is exposed to the drying effects of the hot air as it cooks.
TEC’s new patented grilling system cooks with 100% infrared energy. These grills totally eliminate the hot air associated with gas grilling, so food retains the maximum amount of moisture. As a result, moisture loss and food shrinkage are reduced by up to 35% – even well done meats remain tender and juicy.
TEC’s patented all stainless burners were designed (with specially configured apertures) to distribute heat evenly across the cooking grates. So you can cover the entire grilling surface with steak, chicken or hamburgers, and each piece will cook exactly the same in the same amount of time.
An important part of TEC’s patented infrared technology is the radiant glass panels located between the burner and the cooking grids. These panels, like the glass designed for residential stove tops, are developed to withstand high temperatures. When heated, they radiate 100% infrared energy. But they also function much like charcoal to create TEC’s famous outdoor grill flavor. When drippings from food touch the surface of the heated glass, they are incinerated, producing a smoky vapor that infuses food with our delicious charbroil taste. And expensive marinades can be poured on the food while grilling without wasting them because any excess that drips on the glass sizzles into steam that becomes part of the smoky vapor that flavors the food. An additional benefit is that flare ups are virtually eliminated during grilling because by preventing the flow of air at the grilling surface the oxygen required to ignite food drippings is also eliminated.
TEC’s new grilling system is not only 100% infrared, it has an unprecedented range of cooking intensity that allows you to smoke a turkey on low fire (200° F) and sear a steak on high (800° F). They heat up quickly too – reaching maximum infrared searing temperatures in 7 minutes after preheating on high fire with the hood closed.
TEC’s new patented burner systems are the most fuel-efficient burner systems ever developed for grilling. In fact, laboratory tests indicate that TEC grills are over 50% more energy efficient than traditional convection grills. And because the amount of harmful emissions produced by a burner is directly proportionate to the amount of fuel the burner consumes, TEC grills also reduce emissions by 50% or more.
