With over 125 years’ experience in the culinary world, we knew we could bring a new level of performance to the outdoor kitchen – and make it in the USA. So we went to work on Hestan Outdoor. Every hinge, handle, grate and burner represents countless hours of thoughtful design. Hestan delivers precision performance to reach your culinary aspirations – and heavy-duty construction to weather the great outdoors.
Hestan Outdoor is headquartered in a state-of-the-art 70,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Anaheim, CA – including a showroom, testing kitchen and certified testing lab. We continue to collaborate with innovative chefs like Thomas Keller to create products that not only keep pace with culinary evolution but stay ahead of it.
