Launching April 1, the grill is designed with the southpaw in mind, with a left-sided lighting port and wheels, reversed turning knobs, a left-handed thermometer and a left side shelf, as well as left-handed accessories. Orders for the new product can be placed effective immediately online at www.crownverity.com/lefty.
Crown Verity is launching the world’s first left-handed BBQ on April 1, 2014 with special design considerations for left-handed chefs and backyard barbecuers.
Approximately 10% of people are born left-handed, which means about 10% of barbecues need to be re-designed in order to best serve the 31.4 million Americans who are most likely left-handed grillers.
The Brantford, Ontario manufacturer’s left-handed barbecue features a left-sided lighting port, left sided wheels for easier transportability, reversed turning knobs so that heat increases as they are turned to the left, a left handed thermometer, and a left side shelf.
Also available will be left-handed accessories, including: spatulas, tongs, forks, sauce brushes, cleaning brushes, and a left-handed rotisserie.
The release of the ground breaking product comes out a few months before International Left Handers Day—August 13—giving lefties enough time to prepare for left-handed celebrations this summer.
Crown Verity has dedicated the last year to finding a solution for left-handed barbecuers to make grilling easy and ‘lefty-friendly.’
Orders for the new product can be placed effective immediately online at www.crownverity.com/lefty or by calling 1-888-505-7240.
A left-handed cookbook is also being released. Check out a sample left-handed recipe at http://www.crownverity.com/recipes/grilled-whole-beef-tenderloin-fresh-herbs.
