The timing was perfect. When Lynx Professional Grills was started in 1996, the company was committed to elevating outdoor cooking to new levels. At that time, outdoor cooking meant barbecue grills. But within a few years, the trend for outdoor living took off with Lynx perfectly positioned to capitalize on the demand for luxury outdoor kitchens. The creation of Lynx Professional Grills was the vision of a group of people who, for more than 30 years, had been manufacturing stainless steel products for the commercial restaurant industry under the brand BECA. These products were engineered to stand up to heavy use and the test of time, the same "design elements" needed for outdoor kitchen products, which must endure extreme weather conditions.
