Everyone loves a good grill. Weber has done a great job popularizing decent grills for value.

In their own way, Lynx has done the same on the high end offering high output from an indestructible brass burner. Two years ago, they added the Pro-Sear 2, which allows you to sear any food at any temperature.

But the SmartGrill is on another level from anything I have ever seen in the appliance business.

Have a look...

First the basics:

The SmartGrill is available in three sizes 30, 36 and 42 inches with all the standard features of the upscale Lynx.

How Does the Lynx SmartGrill Work?

The grill is voice activated, but as the chef said it has a learning algorithm. It remembers how you like your food and cooks accordingly. It will also send you a text when this smart grill needs attention, like flipping a burger. Smartgrill works with temperature sensors that provide feedback to the burner itself.

It also has 200 recipes in the database, and you can upload your own favorites to their grilling community.

What I Really Like

A voice activated grill remembering how you like your food is just the start. Your children will one day say "I want a grilled cheese" to a machine. The grilled cheese will be cooked half melted to his or hers liking. Of course, your child will know when it's done because there will be an alert on her smart device.

That’s pretty cool.
