Celebrity chef, restaurant owner and all around culinary kingpin Heston Blumenthal has partnered with Australian company Everdure for the 4K, a range of grills 4,000 years in the making. Available from mid-September, the 4K is inspired by the ancient tradition of Kamado-style ceramic clay cooking, updated with the technology and design traits one would expect of a BBQ in 2018.\r\n\r\n4K is armed with ambient and integrated probes to control both meat and air temperatures sending the data to your Bluetooth device. Before 4K cooks your meal, it even tells you how to prepare it. From temperature control and charcoal management to recipe guidance, the 4K\u2019s smartphone connectivity enables any cook to succeed. Of course, the LED display reads ambient & probe temperatures as well.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe 4K really is the ultimate cooking solution for the outdoors, combining yesterday\u2019s wisdom with tomorrow\u2019s innovation. Its technology and cooking range is peerless,\u201d says Heston. \u201cA fantastic cooking revolution for the outdoors.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n4K electrically ignites the charcoal for faster cooking, and the side hatch enables you to load fresh charcoal during cooking without having to open the grill and disrupt the meat probes. There\u2019s also an electric oven mode for convection cooking. The cool-to-touch exterior ensures onlookers or nearby kids remains burn free.\r\n\r\nAlong with his 3 Michelin starred The Fat Duck in Berkshire, Heston was awarded an O.B.E. by Her Majesty the Queen for his services to British Gastronomy. Once, the guy even designed gourmet meals for NASA\u2019s astronauts to eat in space.\r\n\r\nAll I\u2019m saying is if Heston put just an ounce of the energy required for his previous feats into the 4K, it\u2019s bound to be one-hell-of-a grill. Even if you\u2019re only using it to cook some snags. The 4K Everdure by Heston Blumenthal will be available in 5 colours with a price tag of $2,699. It arrives in September 2018.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
