Element by Fuego is the brainchild of visionary industrial designer, Robert Brunner. A man consumed with improving how we interact with the products we love. The Fuego Element represents a modernist rethink of old-fashioned grilling. Robert Brunner, formerly Director of Design at Apple, now CEO of Ammunition Design Group in San Francisco, is the designer behind the Beats by Dr. Dre headsets phenomenon. Robert is an award-winning industrial designer whose works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Art in New York and San Francisco. He is famous for challenging the status quo with designs that are fresh and unexpected. His Fuego Element Grills are no exception. The award-winning Fuego Element presents a new aesthetic in backyard grilling. Designed for social connectedness, the host now entertains from the center of the party while his friends gather around the grill. The Element has a generous 346 sq. in. of cooking surface, a heavy-duty porcelain-coated cast iron grate, and a Dual-Zone burner that can easily grill up to 12 hamburgers in as little as 8 minutes. That is enough cooking surface to quickly feed a family of four or your neighborhood sports team. The gas-powered Fuego Element heats up to 500*F in as little as five minutes and reaches a maximum temperature of 650*F. Created to be highly efficient, the Element’s smart design guarantees searing heat quickly while optimizing fuel consumption. Best of all, Element’s 21” W x 21” D footprint and locking wheels let you easily roll the grill away while not in use. Or, you can leave it front and center so it can continue to be the life of the party. The Element grill is the proud recipient of the Spark Design Award, the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award, The Vesta Best Gas BBQ of 2010, and the IDSA Gold International Design Award. We hope you will enjoy the product as much as we have enjoyed designing, building, and grilling on it!
