Hestan Outdoor Grills Win Gold from 2017 Excellence in Design Awards

Prestigious appliance DESIGN magazine awards recognize creativity, ease of use and visual appeal.

Hestan Outdoor, manufacturer of premium residential grills and complementary outdoor products, has taken home the gold from the 2017 Excellence in Design (EID) Awards by appliance DESIGN magazine in the Outdoor and Leisure Appliances category for their line of premier, hand-crafted grills. The EID Awards annually recognize new equipment and technologies based on their creativity, ease of use and visual appeal.

“At Hestan, the grill-master is our focus,” said Chris Moy, vice president of engineering, Hestan Commercial Corporation. “So, we’ve spent years designing and refining a suite of high-quality, versatile products that can be customized to meet their individual needs and tastes.”

Manufactured entirely in the company’s 70,000+ square foot, state-of-the-art headquarters in Anaheim, Calif., Hestan Outdoor gas grills offer a number of innovative, high-performance features, including the easy-to-open Horizon Hood™ that holds its position, motion-activated Stadium Lights™ under-hood lighting that turn on automatically when the grill surface is visible to the user, a built-in rotisserie with spit storage and thick, lasered stainless-steel DiamondCut Grates™ that are cut in-house. Hestan Outdoor grills are available in built-in and freestanding models and feature a unique, sleek stainless steel design available in 12 exclusive color finishes.

“Though producing innovative, adaptable, high-performance grills is the core of our outdoor business, we always design to please the eye,” said Basil Larkin, vice president of sales, Hestan Commercial Corporation. “We are honored to accept the gold EID award from appliance DESIGN magazine, because it speaks to every facet of what we try to achieve during the creative and engineering process.”

An independent panel of design experts selected the EID Award recipients. All recipients will be profiled in the June 2017 issue of appliance DESIGN and featured on the magazine’s website at http://www.appliancedesign.com/eid, a permanent section dedicated to the competition.
