GoSun has always been tinkering with our solar ovens and trying to create a product that has every feature our customers want. We consider the Fusion
our flagship product because its lithium-ion battery stores solar energy and allows you to cook at night, a massive evolutionary step in solar cooking.
The Fusion wasn't always our top product, however. The Grill
was originally our first attempt at a hybrid grill. It is the neanderthal to the Fusion's homo sapien.
The Grill was our largest solar oven. It could bake, roast, and steam a meal for 6 people in just an hour. Weighing in at 30 pounds, it had a large-enough solar array to work on sunny or cloudy days.
However, the Grill didn't live up to the promise that the Fusion does. It couldn't effectively heat up at night. It was too large and too expensive due to its complex design. It was heavy and difficult to transport.
If you do own a Grill, consider yourself a collector, because it has been discontinued permanently. The reason we did so is that the Fusion accomplishes every that the Grill was made to do but couldn't.
Here's why the Fusion is better:
- Smaller size
- Lower cost ($499 vs. $799)
- Night cooking ability thanks to its 12V battery
- Cookers faster
- Weighs less, more portable
- More durable (few complaints about the Fusion breaking)
- More Versatility with cooking due to silicone pans
- Tilt kit for water heating.
The reason we are sharing this with you is that GoSun has a culture of experimentation and is always working toward designing the product that our customers want. If our product isn't right, then we want to redesign it (sometimes radically) to make our customers happy.
We're glad that you are with us on this journey and can't wait to share with you the other great products we are working on.
