Using Porcelain and Ceramic surfaces on which to cook food is a method that has been around for thousands of years and remains popular even today. Ceramic surfaces allow food to cook evenly with minimal moisture loss. Rice cookers and crock pots are well known examples of ceramic cooking devices that produce exceptional results.
The Primo Grill and Smoker® was created based on time tested ancient design, but its design has been updated and improved, resulting in one of the most advanced and versatile cookers in today's marketplace. Primo combines centuries of proven cooking techniques with modern technology. Its advanced design includes a high-tech ceramic material that heats quickly and evenly. It won't crack or break even at temperatures approaching 2300 degrees Fahrenheit, and yet it conducts virtually no heat. The Primo Grill and Smoker seals in heat and keeps air out, thus ensuring food is moist and tender. This also slows the charcoal's burn making the Primo Grill and smoker cheaper to use than other grills and smokers.
Most grills on the market are made out of metal. Metal grills can be defined as being constructed of cast aluminum, stainless steel, cast iron, or porcelain enameled metal. Whether you are cooking on a grill which uses charcoal or gas (natural / propane), a metal grill isn't as efficient as it loses heat by radiation.
The Primo Grill doesn't radiate heat through its shell. The Primo's ceramic construction allows heat to stay within the grill. This is mainly accomplished thanks to the composition of the ceramic material which acts as an insulator while creating an air tight grill / smoker.
A well insulated grill doesn't experience heat and moisture loss. Primo Grills require very little energy to sustain the desired temperature within the cooking area; therefore, there isn't as much air needed to burn the fuel (gas or charcoal). Your meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables will stay moist and give you their full flavor.
