Arteflame Classic 40" Grill - Tall Round Base with Storage
The Arteflame Classic 40" grill with tall round base is also available with storage. It has the same sleek look with outstanding functionality. Building a wood or charcoal fire in the center of the grill, the cook top heats from the center out. This heat pattern results in higher cooking temperatures closer in as compared to the outer edges so a variety of foods can be cooked at various temperatures all at the same time. When not in use as a grill, Arteflame can also be enjoyed as a fire bowl with the cooktop on or off, providing warmth and a social and serene ambiance.
The Arteflame Classic 40" grill is a one of a kind grilling experience. If you are looking for some storage space underneath your Arteflame, you want the Tall Round base With Storage.

Why do I need an Arteflame Insert?
The Arteflame insert replaces your stock grill grate with a combination grill and griddle. Inserts are perfect for grilling seafood, steaks, burgers, veggies and more. You can grill your entire meal at once. The griddle allows you to grill all your food at the same time in it's own juices. The. griddle eliminates the slots through which the juices fall into the fire and burn your food with flare-ups. The solid cooktop is perfect for getting that delicious smoky flavor without the burn.
Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron
Why use carbon steel cooktops rather than cast iron? What is the difference and why is carbon steel any better?
Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar. This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling. The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon. This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal. As the Carbon gets added to the steel mix, Carbon has a tendency to clump together into lumpy carbides and form pockets of pure carbon (graphite). When this happens, the metal becomes very hard and very brittle. It disrupts the grain of the metal, making it irregular, brittle and prone to cracking. This is the reason why Cast Iron often cracks or breaks. When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven. When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks. This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped. The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.
Because Carbon Steel has only 1% Carbon, this phenomena is negligible and much easier to control and prevent from happening. The grain structure in Carbon Steel is very uniform and virtually impervious to heat stress or shock. In addition to this, Carbon Steel is “rolled” in the steel mill. It is forced between heavy rollers while the steel is hot. After rolling the steel and getting it to the right thickness, the steel is “doused” with cold water that causes the grain structure to freeze in place. This makes Carbon Steel very strong and the choice material to cook on. Even with uneven heat loads or dropping Carbon Steel, it will not break or crack. This allows for a lifetime of use.
The larger the surface area and the thinner the material, the more prone Cast Iron is to cracking and breaking. In a grill, the heat is never uniform. This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts. For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of Carbon Steel.
Does it use wood for fuel?
Arteflame grills use wood and charcoal for fuel. Use hardwoods such as hickory, oak, maple, and fruit woods such as peach, cherry and apple. Hardwoods have an aromatic air and can be varied to add different flavors to your cooking. Soft woods such as pine are to be avoided as the sap contained in soft woods is prone to smoking and spitting embers. Likewise, never use manufactured logs as they contain wax and fillers that can be harmful - especially if used for cooking.
What is so special about an Arteflame cooktop?
Arteflame uses a special manufacturing process for all grills and inserts. It ensures an accurate and precise fit and finish, eliminates material imperfections and smoothes all steel edges so no food particles can lodge and hide... (yuck!). This method is expensive but it ensures the quality we strive for and you expect.
How do I season the cooktop?
Seasoning the cooktop is key to making it completely non-stick and to keep rust away. The easiest way to season the cooktop is by using the Arteflame Seasoning Puck. Alternatively, you can use cooking oil. We have good results using flaxseed or grapeseed oil. For detailed instructions, follow the instructions in the seasoning manual.
