Did you know?
All barbecue grills require periodic cleaning and maintenance to keep them functioning at their peak. The grease that builds up over time not only diminishes the performance of the grill, but it can pose a fire hazard. Incidentally, should you ever have a grease fire in either your inside or outside kitchen—and we hope you never do, NEVER put water on it. Use a fire extinguisher intended specifically for grease fires. If you don’t have one, throw on baking soda or salt; either one will extinguish it.
The general quality of barbecue grills has diminished somewhat over the last 15 years, primarily because of efforts to reduce production costs. For example, some manufacturers have replaced stainless steel with aluminized steel. Also, many of the accessories on new grills are more window dressing than functional. Not so with a DCS grill—if you have one, hold on to it. If you are buying a new grill, consider its cost in terms of both its life expectancy and the quality of its performance. If you do that, we believe you’ll discover the DCS grill is a great buy!
Should I clean the grill myself?
Cleaning a barbecue grill is dirty work, but someone has to do it. General clean up after each use is always a good idea, and will extend the time between major cleanings. Grease should be removed before it can build up. Since it turns rancid eventually, you don’t want that to flavor your food. Over time, however, some grease build up is inevitable.
Whether a new grill or an older one, and whether you bought it from us or not, we will help you keep your DCS grill in tip top condition. If you call us to periodically check and clean your grill, you will enjoy many years, even several decades, of great barbecues.
Should I repair the grill myself?
Would you attempt to repair your Lamborghini yourself? Unless you’ve been trained specifically to maintain such a high-performance automobile, and have all the tools and parts at hand, you might end up having to drop another half million dollars on a new one? DCS grills are the Lamborghinis of barbecuing, but they’re our specialty.
When our factory-trained technicians come to your home they will thoroughly test all parts of your grill, disassemble and replace all malfunctioning components with factory replacements (we keep over 200 parts in our bench stock), and fully restore its functionality, beauty, and safety. We will arrive on time, and within just a few hours your grill will be operating and sparkling like new. Be assured, also, we will clean up our work area and leave nothing that would be toxic to plants and animals.
Proud History of Appliance Engineering
Dynamic Cooking Systems, or “DCS,” was a manufacturer of high-end cooking appliances in the U.S. when it was bought by Fischer & Paikal in 2004. Since Fischer & Paikal had been designing and manufacturing culinary appliances since 1938, they recognized the high quality of engineering that went into DCS grills. In 1934 Sir Woolf Paikal and Maurice Fischer partnered to establish Fischer & Paikal Industries, Ltd., in New Zealand, which imported appliances produced by Crosley, Maytag, and Pilot. They obtained a license in 1938 to manufacture Kelvinator washing machines, and then began engineering innovative designs which proved to be highly successful. The company has now split into an appliances holding company and a healthcare corporation, each still bearing the “Fischer & Paikal” moniker. A multinational corporation, serving New Zealand, United States, Australia, Italy, and Lebanon, they had a revenue in 2007 of NZ$ 1.4 billion. Their website for U.S. operations is www.fisherpaykel.com/us/.
