Front Runners May 2016: Professional Stripes

Hestan Commercial—the elite line of restaurant appliances designed in collaboration with such chefs as Thomas Keller and Corey Lee—is bringing professional expertise to the backyard cookout with a new collection of outdoor kitchen equipment. The Hestan Outdoor grill ($3,999 to $9,999, hestanoutdoor.com) boasts numerous features inspired by the pros, including a dual-purpose rotisserie with an infrared heat source positioned above, so that it can also be used as a salamander for browning; a laser-cut grid made of 5/16-inch-thick steel for even heat; and a spring-assisted hood that is fitted with an interior light. The gas grill is available in three sizes as a freestanding or built-in model and comes in 12 color finishes as well as classic stainless steel.
