This propane-fueled 1500° Otto Grill lets you quickly sizzle steaks as well as any fancy steakhouse
Chef and restaurateur John Tesar knows a thing or two about cooking prime steaks, so when he says the Otto Grill can cook a steak as well as the $10,000 broilers at his Knife Steakhouse, you know this is one gift that will thrill any steak fanatic.
Fueled by a standard tank of propane, the German-engineered grill’s twin top-mounted infrared gas heaters reach 1500F in under three minutes. It’s that intense, focused heat that creates the golden, caramelized crust typically only a prime steakhouse broiler can deliver. “I can make a steak just as perfect in the Otto as I can at Knife,” says Tesar, who uses an Otto to broil steaks, burgers and even pizzas at home.
“This thing does magic with a thick, expensive cut of dry-aged beef” like you’d buy from the butcher shop at Knife Plano or B&B Butchers, Tesar says. “Unlike a lot of expensive grills that promise a steakhouse experience at home, the Otto grill actually delivers.”
