The world’s first outdoor gas grill was invented
The world’s first outdoor gas grill was invented by Walter Koziol and marketed under the trade name Perfect Host.
The Perfect Host was:
- A 22-1/2″ round portable cart unit
- Available in Natural or LP gas
- Constructed of steel
The Perfect Host changed the way the world cooks out and laid the foundation for the gas grill industry.
The first rectangular designed gas grill was introduced
Cast Aluminum design
Further improving on our design, the first rustproof cast aluminum rectangular gas grill with a patented hinged lid was introduced. To this day, this remains the industry’s most popular design
Proven To Endure The Test Of Time
Pictured above is one of the first solid rustproof cast aluminum grills made in 1964 and is still in use at a home in Antioch.
MHP Company Name Reinstated
The Charmglow name along with the grill and lighting products were sold to Beatrice Foods Company, however the assets of the company were retained.
After the sale, the Koziol family reinstated the MHP company name and began development and engineering of after market gas grill replacement parts.
MHP Reintroduces Grill and Gas Light Products
BBQ’er Choice Grill Series and SearMagic
MHP introduces the BBQ’er Choice grill series—a superior, high quality all cast aluminum grill available in both natural and LP gas.
In addition, MHP introduced another first in innovation and design—the patented SearMagic reversible cooking grids. These grids, constructed of high-performance rustproof aluminum adding cooking and versatility, remain an integral part of current product line-up.
As the demand for impressive built-in backyard kitchens was on the rise, MHP responded by introducing our first series of built-in grills and accompanying accessories. Since then, we have remained dedicated to expanding our portfolio of outdoor kitchen products.
Infrared & Hybrid Grills
In the early months of 2004, MHP shifted its focus towards the development of pioneering cast aluminum infrared and hybrid grills. As a result, in the autumn of 2005, the company unveiled four new models to the market.
MHP purchased ProFire Grills, which had been in business since 1990, allowing the expansion of the grill line to include high-end stainless steel portable and built-in gas grills.
Once again, responding to industry demands, MHP designed and developed the New Phoenix Grill series–the grill that cooks it all!
ProSear Infrared Indoor Grill
Bringing the great outdoor flavor indoors, the ProFire division introduced ProSear, the first and only all infrared stainless steel indoor gas grill.
Dragon Fire Grills
In response to industry demands for a high quality stainless steel grill at a more efficient price, ProFire created the Dragon Fire grill. These grills were scrupulously designed to ensure that the quality of the design and construction was not compromised while keeping the overall cost lower.
