Called the Cobb, it uses only six 250gr charcoal briquettes and three fire lighters to produce a temperature of 550™  °C – 600™  °C for up to three hours. It can be used indoors or outdoors for barbecuing burgers, sausages, steak, etc, or to roast larger cuts of meat and whole chicken, together with vegetables. Stews, rice and similar dishes can be cooked in a pot inside the unit.
Manufactured from stainless steel and high quality polymar, the Cobb is compact and portable – it weighs only 3,5kg. Cooking is insular, so the outside is always cool to touch, making it safe to use around children. Cooking is smokeless.The unit consists of a fire chamber for the coals; a fire grid; a grill constructed to allow the fat to run off during cooking; a moat in which vegetables can be cooked; and a dome to cover the unit during roasting.
The Cobb was designed by South African engineer Ken Hall and is patented in over a hundred countries. A unit costs around $37.
