A professional grill is manufactured out of solid stainless steel, so they can weather better. They also have more and better BTUs. I say better, because the average burner on a pro is 25,000 vs. 10,000 on even a decent grill like Weber and Napoleon.

Who is DCS?

Fisher Paykel markets two brands through North America; Fisher & Paykel and DCS. They are located in East Tamaki, New Zealand. In 2004 they purchased DCS cookware manufacture Dynamic Cooking systems (DCS). DCS is an appliance manufacturer of high end appliances and are one of the pioneers of the first high end professional grill.

DCS appliances have been shown often on Americas Test Kitchen, a very popular cooking show, filmed and produced locally in Brookline Massachusetts. This article will concentrate on their grills, but they have a full assortment of outdoor appliances from grills, carts, storage units and access panels, refrigeration, warming draws and heaters.

Overall Construction

Fit and finish on a grill is very important in New England because of the constant changing weather and being a coastal city. Wind, sand and salt can age a grill practically overnight. DCS grills are made of polished stainless steel welds, provide a seamless look and an easy to clean surface.

Many manufacturers use a single zone for searing, where DCS uses a full surface searing. By strategically placing the ported stainless steel burners, ceramic rods and the heavy gauge stainless steel burner box, DCS has even searing temperatures across the entire grill surface.

Their main burners are all 304 Grade stainless steel and are rated at a high of 25,000 BTU per burner. They have direct vertical ports to deliver the heat and they have a cross fire ignition system. This consistent and direct heat allows for high heat, 900 degrees for searing of meats and a low of 200 degrees for vegetables.

They also layer ceramic rods in between the burners and the grill grate. This allows for intensive heat but a more controlled heat, as opposed to a direct fire. Like good wine, consistent temperature is good for grilling food. On their 36" and 48” grills they have double sided cast 304 grates. This provides durable and sustained life of the grill. One side of the grate has gentle radius for gentle support for delicate food like fish and the other side is shaped like a W for good grease capture and consistent searing lines.

Rotisserie/Smoker

Every DCS grill comes standard with a dedicated Infrared Rotisserie burner. The rotisserie provides a controlled searing heat and can hold up a 50lbs, again speaking to the sound quality of their grills. On their 36” and 48” models they have a dedicated smoker tray; it has a separate 3,500 BTU burner to offer some flexibility for grilling.

With more and more people grilling and having social gatherings at night on their decks; DCS has installed what they call a Smart Beam Grill light. It’s a 40 watt Halogen light, strategically placed in the weather resistant rotisserie motor for nighttime cooking.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
