We can truly say that the Big Green Egg is a unique product. Everyone who tastes dishes prepared on a Big Green Egg becomes a fan for life thanks to the unparalleled great taste it delivers. So what is the secret behind the EGG?
It is the ceramic of the Big Green Egg that reflects the heat, generating an airflow that makes the ingredients and dishes exceptionally tender.
The Big Green Egg ceramic was partly developed by NASA and the production process takes place in North-America according to the strictest quality standards, which explains the exceptionally high quality. It has superb insulating properties and can withstand extreme temperatures and temperature fluctuations.
Perfect air circulation
The heat-reflecting ceramic and the shape of the Big Green Egg allow air to circulate perfectly inside the EGG, causing the food to cook evenly at the desired temperature.
Sustainable and economical
The excellent air circulation comes with an added advantage; because the hot air remains in the EGG, it makes it economical in use. Your charcoal will burn for longer and will generate fewer ashes.
Apart from being sustainable in use, the EGG also consists of sustainable materials. Indeed, at Big Green Egg we aim to manufacture all our products using sustainable materials.
Optimal temperature control
In the Big Green Egg, you can regulate and maintain the temperature between 70 and 350°C to the degree, even when the outdoor temperature is far below freezing.
As a result of the high quality heat-insulating ceramic, external temperatures do not affect the temperature inside the EGG.
For more than 25 years we have had an exclusive partnership with our ceramics producer in Mexico, where no other kamado brand is made. This high-end ceramic producer is ISO 9001 UL certified and therefore meets the highest quality standards. Before a Big Green Egg leaves the factory it undergoes a final, very thorough inspection.
Thanks in part to our certified factory and the inspection process, we stand fully behind our product and offer a limited lifetime guarantee on the materials and manufacture of all the ceramic parts of the EGG.
The ultimate combination of the construction, the manufacturing process and paralleled ceramics makes the Big Green Egg a very durable cooker with a longer lifespan than comparable products.
A Big Green Egg can be heated at least 100,000 times without suffering a loss in its quality, which means that an EGG will last you, at least, a lifetime, allowing you to cook ingredients and dishes in a healthy way and with exceptionally delicious results for days on end.
In addition to grilling, baking, steaming, stir-frying and smoking, the Big Green Egg is also suitable for slow-cooking larger cuts of meat or delicate ingredients such as shellfish, crustaceans and fish fillets.
Using the ceramic convEGGtor, you can easily convert the Big Green Egg into an oven. Adding the Baking Stone allows you to easily bake the best bread and pizzas with a perfect crust. The possibilities are endless: try them all and give your creativity free reign!
Well thought-out and recognisable design
And, last but not least, its appearance is also quite spectacular. The EGG has a striking shape and colour, which makes it quite iconic.
