The timing was perfect. When Lynx Professional Grills was started in 1996, the company was committed to elevating outdoor cooking to new levels. At that time, outdoor cooking meant barbecue grills. But within a few years, the trend for outdoor living took off with Lynx perfectly positioned to capitalize on the demand for luxury outdoor kitchens.
The creation of Lynx Professional Grills was the vision of a group of people who, for more than 30 years, had been manufacturing stainless steel products for the commercial restaurant industry under the brand BECA. These products were engineered to stand up to heavy use and the test of time, the same "design elements" needed for outdoor kitchen products, which must endure extreme weather conditions.
The founders of Lynx Professional Grills were committed to incorporating the same high standards used for commercial restaurant kitchen products – quality materials, fine craftsmanship and innovation – into the company's collection of luxury outdoor kitchen products and accessories for the consumer.
When Lynx products were introduced, the company sold the Lynx Professional Grill (free standing and built-in models), access door, side burners and a cocktail station, which were built exclusively for outdoor use. Made of stainless steel, the eye-catching grill set the standard for form and function, delivering such a great cooking experience that it soon became known as the "world's greatest grill." Consumers loved that it was easy to clean, too. Because it's manufactured using a special welding technique, the grill has no gaps or seams where moisture and grease can collect.
The Lynx family of products soon expanded when the outdoor living trend emerged. To help consumers create the luxurious outdoor kitchen of their dreams, Lynx introduced a line of additional products built for durability and performance – and all with the company's trademark sleek stainless steel look.
Today, the Lynx Professional Grill is available in five models (built-in and free standing), ranging in size from 27 to 54 inches. The company's comprehensive product lineup includes a Cocktail Pro cocktail station; outdoor refrigerator; outdoor ice machine; burners, including side burners, double side burner prep-center and ProSear™ side burner; warming drawer and convenience center with warming drawer; access doors; utility drawers; trash center; and additional accessories such as towel dispenser, towel bar, griddle plate, sliding tank tray and custom covers.
Since its launch, Lynx has set the standard for design, innovation and engineering excellence, introducing proprietary technologies and custom features to ensure consumers have the ultimate Lynx experience.
With continuous innovation a hallmark of the company, Lynx's design engineers have continually introduced a long list of "firsts" to the industry while others follow. They are constantly seeking to add enhancements to existing products to make what is already a great cooking experience for consumers, an even better one.
This dedication to innovation has resulted in such advances as Lynx's hood assist kit, which makes lifting and lowering the grill's hood effortless; the Lynx ProSear variable infrared burner, for cooking at high and low temperatures, and the use of cast brass burners for holding and radiating high temperatures.
Lynx outdoor kitchen products embrace fine craftsmanship, and the company is proud of its highly trained employees who have developed their skills over many years of employment with Lynx Grills.
