The Challenge

Is there anything more difficult to grill at home than that sizzling, melt-in-your-mouth steak you get at a high-end steakhouse? No matter how you grill it or how carefully you prepare the meat, the results never quite measure up!

The Solution

That's why we developed the Otto 1500 °F Steak Grill. With the Otto Lite, you can cook juicy, tender and flavorful steakhouse-caliber steaks right in your own backyard.


The Otto Lite is a focused version of The Otto Grill: stripped of some features, but packing all the performance of The Otto Grill technology.


Steakhouse hot, steakhouse fast
The Otto Lite features dual radiant OverFire™ burners which reach 1500°F in just 3 minutes. Conventional grills take much longer to heat up and cook by convection, drying out the food. Otto’s Radiant Technology radiates infrared waves directly into the food, allowing for higher steak-searing temperatures and faster cooking while taking the food-drying out of the equation.

Extreme Temperatures create a wonderful moisture and flavor sealing crust on your steaks
On the Otto Lite Steak Grill, you’ll start by searing both sides of your steaks for just two minutes per side. This is what creates the all-important crust. The phenomenon is called the Maillard Effect which, in layman’s terms, identifies the reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars in the meat that melt together when subjected to high heat.

Cooking with Top Heat is Consistent & Eliminates Flare-ups
A traditional grill cooks from below causing flare-ups from grease and meat juices dripping into the heat source. These flare-ups, in turn, cause variable temperatures, charred food and uneven cooking. On The Otto Lite, steaks are cooked from above so grease drips into a drip pan below. This means no flare-ups to cause uneven cooking.

Dual OverFire™ Burners, Dual Control
The Otto Lite Steak Grill has two OverFire™ radiant burners that are independently adjustable, not just on/off. This gives you precise control to adjust the temperature on both sides as opposed to one switch.

Radiant Heat Technology allows open front Design
Watch your food grill! The Radiant Heat Technology allows The Otto Lite to have an open-front design giving you easy access to your steak. You can watch your steaks cook so you’re ready to take them off the grill at any moment. You’ll eventually become an expert at visually knowing when your steaks are done.

Cast Iron Grate Holds Heat & Largest Porterhouse Steak
The cast iron grate designed for The Otto Lite helps to retain heat, requires minimal care and is large enough to cook even the largest Porterhouse steaks. The grate slides in easily and stays securely on the adjustable lift of the Otto Lite Steak Grill.


“One young startup […] is turning heads with its impressively powerful, high end grill called the Otto Grill. […] Their single-purpose grill does one thing really well: […] it cooks steaks with the precision that only German engineering can.”

The Huffington Post | New York

“It cooked a perfect steak, probably the best I have had.”

Arlie Bragg | Vice President Kansas City Barbecue Society

The Otto Grill is simply the best Steak Grill out there. The size of its grill grate and two separately adjustable burners make it particularly versatile. Seriously: 95% of all steak houses don’t produce such results! I am truly excited!
