A first for the BBQ market, The Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite is designed to be dropped into a bench top made from any material, including combustible materials such as wood. It has been specially designed to be installed with minimal fuss. You can also purchase the Heatlie Island Gourmet cabinet, which has the necessary ventilation requirements, as specified by the Australian Standards and a grill plate, so you can cook the perfect steak.
The Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite is now available in 2 sizes, the 600mm and 850mm models.
It can be installed into any combustible material…
This barbecue is the only one on the market which can be installed directly into a bench top made from combustible materials. This means it can be dropped into any standard kitchen bench, eliminating the need for granite or stone benchtops. Granite, stone and similar materials will remain the preferred option for many Outdoor Kitchen owners, giving a look of sophistication and quality, to match the same characteristics in the Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite.
Designed to fit into standard benchtops…
This BBQ will fit into a standard 600mm benchtop. Another bonus for outdoor kitchen owners who have had their kitchen built but are yet to choose their BBQ, and easy for builders and cabinet makers too, eliminating the need for a non-standard bench to be manufactured.
Flame failure as standard…
This safety feature is often a standard requirement for many outdoor kitchen installations. It is now included in this new product as part of the gas tap configuration and is designed to cut the gas supply if the flame is extinguished by a gust of wind, for example.
As the knob on the Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite is turned, the piezo ignition automatically lights the BBQ. No additional buttons to push and maintain. Easy, no fuss and works every time.
Easy to clean…
The Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite features a lift out plate and a separate fat container, which allows for easy cleaning while still eliminating the risk of a flare up from dripping fat. The plate can be lifted out, pressure cleaned or scrubbed, then easily replaced for your next BBQ. The fat container can be easily cleaned out also.
Comes fully assembled…
The Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite now arrives on your door step fully assembled, ready to drop into your benchtop and then to be connected to a gas supply. This BBQ is comfortably lifted by 2 people. You will up and running in under 10 minutes, ready to cook on your new BBQ.
LPG or Natural Gas… and Universal Gas
Bottled LPG and piped Natural Gas is able to be used safely on the Island Gourmet Elite. There is a small additional cost for the Natural Gas version. Heatlie were also successful in obtaining approval from the AGA (Australian Gas Association) for the use of Universal Gas, allowing this product to be used in other countries using this type of gas.
Available in mild steel or stainless steel, this plate will turn your BBQ into a grill. Designed with safety in mind, there is no chance of flare-ups, and comes with trays to catch any waste which drips through the grill.
The roasting hood is available, which features a thermometer to assist the cook with keeping track of the temperature and cooking time of roasts and other larger items. This can be added when you purchase your new BBQ or can be fitted easily at a later date.
A 2, 3 or 4 door cabinet is currently available. This is made in our factory in Australia and is designed to house both the Island Gourmet models.
Seasoning the Plate
As the Heatlie Island Gourmet Elite hot plate is made from 5mm mild steel, it is recommended that the steel hot plate be “seasoned” to reduce the likelihood of food sticking to the hot plate. This is achieved by following these simple steps:
Wash hot plate using warm soapy water.
Rinse and dry hot plate.
Turn on barbecue and apply a layer of vegetable or cooking oil.
Turn off barbecue.
Wipe off layer of oil.
After cooking, scrape food particles off hot plate and apply a layer of cooking oil before storage. After continual use you will notice a brown film developing over the hot plate. This seasoning process will reduce the likelihood of food sticking to the hot plate.
