In writing about thrice-Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal’s new grill, I’m at an advantage.
Because it was made for me.
First and foremost, in this new smart, Bluetooth-enabled world of outdoor cookery, I remain an analog griller. I also live in a small apartment in NYC, where the closest thing I have to backyard space is a wrought-iron fire escape tangled with all manner of cables and wire.
And finally, I am a sucker for good-looking things.
Anyway, if you’ve ever wondered what grills look like on a spectrum, first direct your attention to the Everdure Hub, then come back here and peep their new Everdure Cube, the new portable charcoal grill offering from Blumenthal’s kitchenware brand.
The Cube is small. Small enough to fit in my “backyard,” and small enough to carry to a cookout. Featuring a porcelain enamel firebox and a stainless-steel cooking surface with “stay-cool” chrome handles, it’s perfectly safe and will certainly get the job done for a small party. And it'll look damn good doing it.
Not only that, the clever design also offers an integrated food-grade storage tray and bamboo prep board.
Available in graphite, khaki, orange or stone, the Everdure Cube is priced at an even $200.
