The Cobb grill is a unique invention originating from South Africa. It was originally developed by an engineer hired by the country's government to develop a way for the rural population to prepare food without risking setting fire to their hut, or in the worst case the whole village.

The engineer developed an ingenious product that does not get hot on the outside, uses minimal fuel and grills without flames and smoke.

Since then, Cobb has been continuously developed and modernized, but the principle remains the same. Combined with Cobb's strong drive to continue to improve and develop, this has resulted in a product that has become very popular worldwide and is nowadays available in several different designs with many practical accessories.
