Advice regarding non-Grillo barbecues

What do you need to consider?

If you are planning to place any non-Grillo supplied BBQ on the Grillo base, please be aware that you are solely responsible for the suitability of the BBQ, and its compatibility with the base.

Please note:

1. A non-Grillo supplied BBQ must not be placed directly onto the surface of the Vantage Short Square. The thermal stress-induced could crack the surface. Ceramic feet for the purpose of standing the BBQ on will be provided.

2. Any BBQ must be fixed down so that it is secure and stable.

3. A possible solution is shown in the pictures below.


If you follow our advice and suggestions on this page, the standard warranty of the kitchen and Vantage Short Square products will be fully honoured. Design your kitchen safely, and above all, have fun!
