Not Content to Rest After the Launch of XXL,
Big Green Egg announces MiniMax™ –
the Ultimate (Compact) Cooking Experience!
While the Big Green Egg has always been acclaimed as The Ultimate Cooking Experience for backyard cooks and grilling aficionados, the EGG has also become an invaluable “tool of the trade” for award-winning chefs in some of the most celebrated restaurants in the world – from the top BBQ joints to fine dining in dozens of countries, and prized by everyone from TV Food Show personalities to Michelin Star Chefs throughout Europe, England and beyond.
For many years, casual grillers have enjoyed the portability and performance of the Mini EGG, and acclaimed chefs have recognized the opportunity to enhance their restaurant’s menu and customer experience by adding the unique versatility of the smaller EGGs to their lineup as the ideal addition to their larger EGGs … and in many cases their Mini and Small EGGs are prominently positioned in the main kitchen as their go-to workhorse alongside the other commercial cooking surfaces!
In 2013, the convEGGtor (Plate Setter) was added to the Mini, giving it even more range and versatility. As the Mini EGG continues to gain more fans of the enhanced culinary experience, demand has grown for an even larger cooking surface in a small, yet high performance, package.
To satisfy this demand, the Big Green Egg “MiniMax” was announced and unveiled to the world at HPBA Expo 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Destined to become a popular backyard staple and an invaluable culinary tool for restaurants – MiniMax was designed with the same height of a Mini yet all the volume capabilities of a Small – the MiniMax EGG is also the ultimate portable solution for picnics and tailgating, vacations, boating and campfire meals. With a compact size that is perfect as a table-side cooker at your garden party or grilling on balconies for an intimate dinner for two … the MiniMax EGG is sure to deliver oversized results in a small package!
But don’t let size fool you … this little performer can do it all, from appetizers to ribs, burgers, steaks and more, serving up the mouthwatering fare and legendary Big Green Egg flavor you have come to love on any other size EGG. You can cook nearly anything on a MiniMax EGG … just let your imagination be your guide as you discover how easy it is to create all your favorite recipes in a smaller package.
Opening the dome reveals a stainless steel cooking grid measuring 13 inches/33 cm in diameter for a whopping 132 square inches/854 cm2 of cooking area … all within a convenient 19.5 inch/49.5 cm height! And like all EGGs in the Big Green Egg family, the MiniMax can handle virtually any cooking need, from cooking low and slow for hours to flash searing at ultra high temperatures.
As fans have come to expect, the MiniMax accommodates numerous EGGcessories designed exclusively for the EGG — including a convEGGtor for indirect cooking — utilizing the full versatility of the EGG and making the culinary possibilities endless. Its patented components and state-of-the-art ceramic technologies provide the best cooking results and will not deteriorate over time. And, of course, the MiniMax is constructed from the same ultra high-quality ceramics as the other six EGG sizes, and comes with the same best-in-class limited lifetime warranty.
