Advanced barbecue technology
The sophisticated technology in our high-efficiency electric and gas barbecue cooktops exceed all requirements for reliability, economy, and cooking performance, while the unique sterilisation cycle provides complete peace of mind
Like most high-end cooking appliances, our energy efficient cooktops contain the latest barbecue technology to ensure the best possible cooking experience.The result of continuous innovation and refinement over many decades, each new Christie barbecue model is exhaustively tested in real-world applications to ensure that it achieves the optimum balance between cooking performance and power consumption. Accurate heat sensing and real-time temperature adjustment is required to provide a satisfactory barbecuing experience. Employing the latest digital technology, the pre-programmed cooking cycle of our barbecues quickly brings the hotplate temperature to a high heat – sterilizing the cooking surface – then constantly and accurately monitors and adjusts the hotplate temperature to ensure that food is cooked efficiently and uniformly, without stewing or charring.

Our unique gas cook tops have been tested and certified to Commercial Catering Appliance Standard and approved for both indoor and outdoor use. The latest generation CC2 gas cooktop takes our leadership in gas cooking technology to a new level, with electronic ignition and digital temperature sensing for ultimate reliability; a proprietary stainless-steel gas burner for even heat distribution; and an electronic re-ignition and flame sensor for safety and total peace of mind. Available for reticulated (mains) gas or LPG (bottled) gas applications, they provide the ideal barbecue solution for parks and remote areas where electricity is not available.
Electric efficiency is not measured by simplistic power ratings: a complex metric combines the total energy consumed and the time taken to cook food thoroughly and hygienically. Our award winning 3.4kW CC2 electric cooktop is the ultimate barbecue appliance, powerful enough for the demands of continuous use that defeats many low-powered alternatives. Research has proven that our barbecues are used mostly by large groups and families of five or more persons. To address their requirements, the high-efficiency barbecue cooktop strikes the optimum balance between energy efficiency and the ability to grill large quantities of food quickly, evenly, and hygienically.
