The Milano Arosti Grille has the rough good looks of an Italian hand-built unit. It is a combination rotisserie and grill which features a wood-fired grill and a 4-spit rotisserie that is equipped with infrared burners. An optional gas grill is available.
The grill consists of ½ inch square bar or ½ inch round bar spaced on 7/8 inch centers providing a distinctive grill mark on veal chops, steaks, kabobs, and seafood. A fuel loading door and an ash drawer are standard.
A “planetary” motion drive system provides even cooking of the food. Each spit revolves individually while the entire rotisserie wheel revolves as well. It is cooked with infrared rays which beam down from gas generators mounted in the ceiling of the rotisserie, offering a beautiful, rosy glow as it revolves. The rotisserie is equipped with (4) angle spits designed for chickens and with (4) straight hex rods complete with (8) 3-tine end forks and (12) middle forks. A removable stainless steel drip pan is included.
