About Lynx Grills
Back in 1996, there was a moment of truth for a visionary group, the group had spent over three decades building stainless steel equipment that was commercial quality for restaurants. Their vision was simple, apply the standards, materials, and craftsmanship they used building that equipment, along with never-ending innovation to the world of home outdoor cooking.
They sought to take the world of outdoor cooking beyond the ordinary grill, they wanted to expand it and make it a luxury experience. With their craft and quality, they would ensure that each product lasted.
That was the beginning of Lynx. They started with one small catalog and waited for the moment of truth, waited for the world to decide if they would be welcomed into the backyards of home cooks.
The world quickly decided, and the decision was to embrace Lynx. Lynx soon earned a title of “the worlds greatest grill”.
The world of outdoor cooking has been changed forever and brought into a world of luxury with Lynx leading the way. As the company has grown so has their fanbase and their pride. Lynx wants to continue to expand the now luxury world of outdoor cooking and invite the rest of the world to join in.
The Lynx 36 Freestanding Smart Grill Review
Need A Grill With Space? Look No Further
The Lynx 36 Freestanding Grill is a creation of innovation. This smart grill is pioneering technology that is automated cooking with the MyChef system to help any griller succeed in any dish. Now this grill might not be for the traditionalists, competition BBQers or those who are not so tech savvy, however, it is one for those who demand luxury.
Not only will the Lynx 36 help you master backyard grilling, but it will also respond to voice control and smart device controlling. You can easily grill your favorite meals and monitor them from the comfort of your couch or sitting down by the pool with friends and family.
I understand this way of cooking is not for everyone but regardless of how you feel about this type of technology, it's pretty darn cool, to say the least!
This model is easily mobile and features a freestanding card with foldable shelves and access doors to allow for quick access to stored items or the propane tank. It’s been durability tested and it’s safe to say that this grill passed with flying colors.

Ease of Setup
Although there are a lot of electronic parts and the user manual has a TONNE of information, the Lynx 36 Smart Grill can be a little time consuming to set up.
The user manual covers everything from how to unbox to downloading the app to your smart device.
Should you have any problems setting up this grill, you can easily find a plethora of videos online, or get in touch with the Lynx customer service team to explain the setup process step by step.
Ease of Use
The Lynx 36 Freestanding Smart grill is a new take on a grill, meaning that the ease of use really depends on the user. For those who are a little turned away or scared of technology this grill can be a little overwhelming - I mean a grill that you can talk to and get a reply from?? What the!?
While it is like most grills in the sense that it cooks and uses propane gas, it’s far, far, far more than that. This smart grill is actually smart, so smart I would say its a kid genius.
Its innovative technology allows it to be controlled by voice (using the preset voice commands) or from your favorite seat in the man cave via your smart device.
Here is where things get quite exciting, the grill actually learns how you like your meat to be cooked. You can literally tell it if the chicken is cooked you last time was to done for your liking and it will adjust its cook time and temperature to suit. (I can't even get my wife to do that)
The Lynx 36 Freestanding Smart Grill is durability tested and it is safe to say that the grill passed the test.
Not only is this smart grill durable, its electronic components are enclosed in a weatherproof case underneath the grill. It also comes with a cover that is made of carbon fiber vinyl, ensuring that it is covered and elegant.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The cleaning and maintenance of this model is pretty easy. While you would clean it like you do most grills, with a wire brush or a soapy washcloth, you do need to take a bit more care considering the electronic components.
It is important to pay attention to what part of the grill your cleaning and only use a slightly dampened wash cloth when cleaning around any component of the grill that is electronic.
The Lynx 36 Freestanding Smart Grill has a limited lifetime warranty that covers the stainless steel body of the grill along with the burners and cooking grates.
There is a limited five-year warranty that covers the warming racks, spit rods, manifolds, and gas valves. All remaining parts are covered under limited two-year warranty.
For full details please look at the Warranty.
Do You Get Value For Money?
Let's not beat around the bush. The Lynx 36 is an expensive grill by anyone's standards. It's a grill that is most definitely not suited to everyone. It is a very luxury grill for the luxury market.
It is a new generation of grill which is damn impressive, a little scary but impressive. It can grill you your perfect steak, slow roast a beer can chicken and even tell you how long it has to go till its done.
Not only does it have every bell and whistle you could ever ask for (and some you didn't ask for but now couldn't live without) it is made with high quality and craftsmanship.
Lynx has thought of everything when it comes to this grill and that is reflected in the price tag.
However, if I had the money to go ahead and spend this much on a grill I would have no hesitation in buying the Lynx 36 Smart Grill.
What I Liked
What I Didn't Like
Overall the Lynx 36 Freestanding Smart Grill is an amazing piece of machinery.
You get a full range of traditional grill features, perfect for those days when all you want to do is grill a steak with a beer in hand and enjoy life's greatest joy. However, you also get a plethora of groundbreaking features that essentially allow the grill to cook for you all by itself.
Not only that it listens to you, replies to you and remembers all different things about you.
Having this smart grill enables you to control and monitor your cooking from your Apple or Android smart device, and when you don't feel like typing you can also use your voice.
Another great feature of this smart grill is the quick connectivity, which is essential for the smart to come into play. You get 802.11N Wi-Fi along with 64GB of storage to store your recipes and other pertinent information. All of this is powered by a 1.5Ghz Intel processor.
The only real downside to this beauty is for everyone. You really do need to have a love for new technology and a little bit of a geeky side.
Iv said it once and I will say it again, if I had the money for this grill there would be no hesitation in buying it - it's fascinating, delicious and would make life very, very easy!
