Napoleon®, a manufacturer of barbecue grills has announced a new type of product. The Napoleon Rogue EQ™ Connected Electric Grill Series is the first line of full-size outdoor electric grills with IoT technology. The two-burner Rogue EQ 365 is the first product launch in the series.
“Napoleon is changing the conversation around electric grilling”, said Stephen Schroeter, Co-CEO, Napoleon. “Until now, the availability of electric grills was limited to indoor, travel-size, and those without smart technology. Napoleon’s goal has always been to manufacture grills with the most advanced features on the market yet make them attainable to the grilling enthusiast. With our Rogue EQ Series, we’re making sustainable technology and alternatives mainstream with a full-size electric grill at an affordable cost.”
Research indicates that post-pandemic consumers are more aware of sustainability when purchasing products (Forrester 2021 data). According to a study from The Insight Partners (2021), the multi-billion-dollar electric grilling market is expected to grow more than 67% over the next 5 years.
“As consumers have evolved their mindset around sustainability, we have continued to evolve ours,” said Chris Schroeter, Co-CEO, Napoleon. “Napoleon will increase our portfolio of sustainable products up to 250% by 2025. It’s about giving consumers more choices when it comes to making sustainable decisions. This launch is a preview of what’s to come. As one of the first grill manufacturers to offer infrared grilling technology to the consumer at an affordable price, this product demonstrates our commitment to continued industry-leading technology.”
The Rogue EQ Connected Electric Grill allows people to control aspects of the grill with IoT controls through an app on your smartphone. They can monitor the temperatures and grill controls with a 7- inch LCD screen.
