  • Everdure by Heston Blumenthal already produce the world's most awarded range of charcoal and gas BBQs. The design challenge with the 4K was to develop an outdoor cooking appliance that could replace everything that came before it, a product that was truly unique and had the potential to disrupt the BBQ market in the same way as its predecessors. The brief called for an outdoor oven that could roast, grill, smoke and bake without compromising ease of use or convenience. It would redefine expectations of what a BBQ can do, and use technology to guide users through the cooking process.

  • Our inspiration came from the 4,000-year-old tradition of Kamado-style cooking (the origin of the name 4K), developing a charcoal/electric oven that combined the intelligence and convenience of current technology with the unique benefits of this ancient cooking technique. Die-cast aluminium construction delivers superior heat retention, a hallmark of Kamado cooking. The insulated inner body and double-walled design keeps the exterior cool to touch at roasting temperatures. Featuring an electronic charcoal ignition system, the 4K takes control and convenience to the next level with digital touch-screen controls, a precise airflow control system and six integrated temperature probes with Bluetooth smartphone connectivity.

  • Everdure by Heston Blumenthal’s goal is to give home cooks the tools they need to produce professional results. The 4K takes this philosophy to the next level, enabling amatuer cooks to achieve results worthy of a professional chef. It has the potential to have a disruptive impact on the outdoor cooking market, effectively creating a new category of product. The 4K takes cooking techniques that many cooks may find challenging (like smoking) and makes them accessible. It not only cooks the food but also tells you how to prepare it, advising on temperature control, charcoal management and even suggesting recipes.
