Video Review Coming….Alfresco ALXE42SZ Grill – “Smoke-tissing”

Written by Appliance Dude | January 5th, 2016

I’ve been testing my Alfresco 42″ Grill – ALXE42SZ – for a few weeks now.
Wow.
Incredible gas grill.
And I LOVE the smoker…errrr…I mean the “integrated smoke chamber/herb infusion system

Be on the lookout for an epic Appliance Dude video (first of 2016!) where I review its ability to
“Smoketiss”…meaning cooking with the smoker while the food is on the rotisserie spit. It is a very cool technique and resulted in a herbaceously delicious rotis chicken.

Review: Alfresco ALXE42SZ 42″ Grill – Curto’s Appliances

Written by Appliance Dude | December 9th, 2015

Step right up folks, it’s a video review of the new Alfresco ALXE grill series – the 42″ sear zone model ALXE42SZ in particular.

What makes this different? I now own the damn thing so this is insight gleaned from cooking on it. No reviews based on product specs or drinking the Kool-Aid from manufacturers here folks. I am here to report the good, the bad and the ugly (epic film btw), and since I paid for it, I will not hold back.

This review was based on one cook. There is much, much more to do. So many accessories to play with…this grill and I will be attached at the hip this winter. Winter is coming…and I’m ready with my Alfresco.

Flame on!

Review: Alfresco Grill Outdoor Kitchen – Westchester County

Written by Appliance Dude | November 6th, 2015

Here’s another pic of an Alfresco kitchen that we worked on this past summer.
You’ll see an ALX2-42SZ along with access doors and a refrigerator which I believe was a Summit. I just wrapped up chatting with a grill service tech who handles many of the leading premium gas grills and his take is that Alfresco is the best made of the bunch.
Food for thought!

New Alfresco ALXE Grill Pics – Curto’s Westchester County

Written by Appliance Dude | November 3rd, 2015

I used to get asked “Why do you make those Appliance Dude videos?”

And my answer was(is) always the same:

To help.

I helped this gentleman in Sonoma California with some questions on his outdoor kitchen and lo and behold, a new Alfresco 42″ ALXE and 65K BTU Versa Power Burner were on the way to him…and an invite for me and the Mrs. to visit when we are in the wine country. Gotta love it!

Alfresco Grill in Scarsdale NY – Curto’s Review

Written by Appliance Dude | October 12th, 2015

Alfresco ALX242SZ 42″ Grill in Westchester County

We are enjoying a beautiful Indian summer here in Westchester County which has provided continued opportunities for summer grilling. Even with the higher temps, fall decorating abounds and in this photo provided by one of my Scarsdale customers she decided to frame her Alfresco grill with a mum plant. Anyone for grilled butternut squash?


The grill under the cover is an Alfresco 42″ ALX2-42SZ which is their 42″ offering with a sear burner. This is the most popular ALfresco model and now is the time to act on ALX2 models as they will soon go on clearance to make way for the newer ALXE models.

Written by Appliance Dude | October 1st, 2015

Here is an Alfresco 42″ grill in Bronxville NY accompanied by storage doors, a side burner and the Alfresco URS-1 28″ fridge. The line is about 9 ft long and shows that you don’t have to build something that Frank Gehry would be envious of when it comes to designing an outdoor space. There is enough here for cooking, prepping and plating…job well done by another happy Curto’s customer.

7/30/15 – Editor’s note: The new Alfresco ALXE grills have just been released. For more information on them please visit the new Curto’s Alfresco blog at curtos.com

Feast your eyes on some new Alfresco grill outdoor kitchen pics. The pictures probably do a better job explaining all of the possibilities with the Alfresco line of grills (which can be dizzying once you start poring though their catalog). As I’ve stated to many folks walking through the showroom doors, if you are a serious griller (or aspire to be), especially one who envisions using their grill year round, Alfresco is the way to go because of the safety features and protection it provides for the wiring and igniters (which are always the problematic parts on grills).
Enjoy and if you want to see the Alfresco built-in grill with its various accoutrements come visit the Curto’s showroom in Westchester County NY.
