What Makes The Monolith Ceramic Grill Special?


Barbecue, low temperature cooking, baking, smoking and searing – whichever way you prepare your dishes, the MONOLITH grill will always enable you to achieve perfect results. Whether you want high temperatures for the perfect steak or low temperatures for smoking – the MONOLITH delivers it all.


Due to its unique thermal properties the MONOLITH grill needs very little energy to generate and maintain the desired temperature so with just 2½-3 kg of charcoal the MONOLITH can cook low and slow for up to 24 hours. Furthermore very little oxygen is required to maintain temperature and air movement is minimal so meats stay moist and juicy.


Compared to other barbecues the MONOLITH is extremely fuel efficient delivering high temperatures with minimal waste and makes searing a couple of steaks a breeze. Simply open the top and bottom vents and air races in to quickly heat the charcoal. When done just close the vents to stop the air flow, the grill and fire area are now sealed and within a short time the charcoal embers die down ready to be re-used next time.

Unique Wood Chip Feeder

The MONOLITH system for adding wood chips gives the meat that typical smoky BBQ taste without having to disturb the meat by raising the lid. Flavoured wood chips are placed in a chute and are pushed through the specially designed aperture directly in to the fire. 

Quality Construction

The MONOLITH is made of extremely heat-resistant ceramics and highgrade stainless steel. The robustly designed cart is made of powdercoated steel, has two practical solid bamboo side tables and locking casters for safety.


The outside surface temperature of the MONOLITH is much lower than a regular steel grill – there is minimal danger of burn injuries.

Cooking Prowess

The exceptional thermal performance of the solid ceramic and clever air regulation means you can control the temperature in the MONOLITH like no other type of grill. In addition charcoal consumption is around 25-50 % less than a regular grill. Light the charcoal and you are ready to cook in just 15 minutes with far less fuel burnt during the preheating phase.

Easy Clean

The outstanding thermal performance of the ceramic coupled with the use of high-quality stainless steel make the MONOLITH very low-maintenance and it can even be used in winter. Simply clean by setting at 200°C for 15-20 minutes.


The comprehensive limited lifetime warranty covers the ceramic parts and the warranty period on the metal parts is 5 years. Click here for full details.

How To Assemble Monolith Ceramic Grills

This video was shot by Martin, a competition barbecue chef whom we sponsor. His competition team name is "Tea & Brisket". We sent him a new Pro Series 1.0 to cook on and he kindly shot this video whilst doing a first time assembly. You can see how easy a new Monolith is to unpack even without reading the instructions although Martin could have made it even easier by:

  1. Unpacking all the internal items before lifting the Monolith - not only does this make it a lighter lift, it also means that you can assemble everything in the correct order including...
  2. Placing the stainless steel caps on the legs before screwing them into the cradle
  3. Putting the cast iron grill grate in the firebox before the charcoal basket

Other than that...great job Martin, many thanks!

Warranty Details

The warranty is based on normal and reasonable residential use.  The MONOLITH GRILL carries a warranty for materials and workmanship on all grills and components, manufactured after 01.01.2019, as explained below:

1. The MONOLITH carries a limited lifetime warranty on all ceramic components and a 5 year warranty on all metal components. The warranty is non-transferable, hence valid for as long as the original purchaser owns the MONOLITH. Warranty coverage begins upon purchase from an authorized retailer. The original purchase receipt must accompany all warranty claims.

2. Within the warranty all original MONOLITH components that are found to have defects in materials or workmanship, will be replaced or repaired.  Fulfilment of warranty acts does neither cause a prolongation of the warranty period, nor does it initiate a new warranty period. Ownership of replaced parts reverts to MONOLITH.

3. The warranty is only valid for the original purchaser as follows: Warranty coverage begins upon purchase from an authorized retailer only. The warranty is non-transferable and cannot be prolonged through any of our retailers or partners.
The assembly and installation of the grill must be in accordance with the user manual, and in accordance with all regional and national building and fire safety codes.
Fine cracks in the exterior glaze, so-called Craquelure, can occur during the firing process caused by different expansion coefficients of the glaze and ceramic material. This is inevitable and even desirable, making the ceramic more robust to temperature changes. Craquelure is not a quality defect. Should however, parts of the ceramic break or chip, please contact our customer service.
Due to the high temperature fluctuations within the grill the fire box and the fire ring could crack. The expansion joints in these components usually prevent such cracking. Should any fine cracks appear, these are merely an optical defect and generally do not expand any further. Further use of these components is safe, the functionality of the grill is not affected. Should however, these components break, please contact our customer service.
Stainless steel components, such as grill grids, are subject to discolouration through exposure to high temperatures.  Furthermore, under certain conditions, the stainless steel components may rust. Warranty coverage does not extend to any dents, scratches, chips, fading, oxidation, rust or corrosion resulting in the improper use of chemical cleaners or heat exposure, unless resulting in a loss of structural or functional integrity.
The warranty is based on normal and reasonable use and maintenance of the MONOLITH. The warranty does not apply to any damage or breakage caused by improper use. Any unauthorized modifications or alterations to the MONOLITH will void the warranty.

4. Warranty claims outside of Germany must be made through an authorized retailer or distributor within the original country of purchase. For MONOLITH grills, which have been purchased from an authorized dealer in one EU country and taken to another EU country, services are provided in context of the terms of warranty valid for the latter.

5. Warranty does not apply to any losses or accidental damage or breakage from dropping, or for any damage incurred through; improper assembly, support or use; improper storage, transportation; lack of maintenance or through negligence.  Warranty coverage does not extend to storm damage such as hail storms, floods or natural disasters, fading through the exposure to chemicals or minor cosmetic cracks of the exterior glaze that do not affect the performance of the MONOLITH.

6. All further claims, including, in particular, claims for damages, are herewith excluded
