Synergy Grill, a pioneering chargrill manufacturer based in Cambridgeshire, has received over £200,000 of investment from private investors. The successful initial round of funding is part of a larger fundraising process designed to finance a targeted marketing and sales strategy.
The success comes after Synergy Grills have been installed into over 200 dining outlets in the UK and South Africa. The reasons for the chargrill’s popularity have been attributed to the unique benefits of cutting gas consumption by an average of 52% and as fat is instantly atomised there’s no fat tray to clean and this removes the need to responsibly dispose of fatty waste. Finally, it produces better tasting and more succulent food as vapour is re-dispersed back into food as it is atomised.
The objective now is to make Synergy Grill and its advanced British technology the ‘grill of choice’ for modern catering establishments, starting in the UK with the opportunity to spread globally.
Synergy Grill comments: “It’s a great bit of British kit. Chefs are happy as they have a grill that’s cool to cook over all day, fast, makes food seriously succulent and tasty and there’s no fat tray to clean daily. Proprietors are happy too as has bills are halved, Synergy Grills don’t need to be on all day because they heat up in 20 minutes which reduces the cost per plate and they don’t have to responsibly dispose of fatty waste any more.”

How does it work?
The Synergy Grill revolves around a patented gas burner system which works at an incredibly hot temperature. High heat atomises fat so there’s no fat tray for chefs to clean and they don’t need to worry about the disposal of fatty waste.
The water vapour that’s released from the fat is also absorbed back into the food, creating a juicier, more intense flavour.
By incorporating gas and air in addition to using heat capturing ceramic technology Synergy grills use 52% less gas. This results in less CO2 residue than a convention burner creating cleaner vapour for chefs to work over.
This patented system also prevents any cross-flavouring of meats or fish through smoke contamination. The SG630 works on a single burner. The SG900 and SG1300 feature independent burners with their own on/off switches to allow for modular cooking.
Synergy Grills also route cool air around the grill to produce cool touch surfaces, making them less hot to cook over.
