Now available with a choice of door colours, select from black, red or stainless steel as standard. We can also match your favourite Pantone colour (at an extra cost) so your Bertha Oven is unique to you and bang on your brand.
Bertha was born in 2008 it has become a legend in the world of charcoal gastronomy. Inspired by a desire to create a charcoal oven that would create outstanding cooking techniques and speeds for chefs, and new taste experiences for its customers, Bertha - The Original Charcoal Oven is making a BIG impact in the industry. A Bertha oven stands out with its iconic shape and sleek finish – it’s an oven that’s as versatile as it is specialist; a seriously professional piece of kit for serious professionals. Turn up the heat and add a new flavour dimension to your menu with the unique taste and superior flavours achieved when cooking on a Bertha charcoal oven. With an unrivalled taste, an even cook, and the flexibility to cook almost anything to perfection - you’ll know when you’ve been cooking on a Bertha.
The advantage of a Bertha over an open fired Basque or Robata style grill is that the Bertha retains the heat, meaning that it is possible to cook food in much quicker time and it is far easier to control the air flow and in turn the intensity of the embers, making it possible to reduce coal consumption and to give a special touch to the food. As it has a closed chamber, the Bertha utilises four methods of heat transference: radiation, convection, conduction and direct heat.
The Bertha can work with any type of charcoal (We do recommend Sumi Bincho) and many types of wood. The temperature is controlled by an exterior handle that increases or decreases air-flow to the solid-fuel chamber from the lower vent. The immediate impact that has on the embers - and therefore the temperature - is exhilarating to see.
From a cold-start it takes roughly 30-40 minutes to get up to cooking temperatures of 250-300 degrees. After another 15 minutes or so, the walls of the chamber become 'charged', which means the Bertha is now using radiant heat, which can be retained for a whole service if required.
The Bertha is quick, easy, and clean to light using additive-free firelighters. The choice of wood or wood chips used will have a subtle but distinctive impact on flavour, and the same is true of the choice of charcoal too. Moreover, being closed, it allows the typical techniques of an oven such as baking from above, Smoking , Roasting, Grilling and Searing. Even though the chamber temperature of the Bertha obviously gets extremely hot, the fully insulated door and walls prevent heat from escaping into the kitchen and gives the chef a more pleasant working environment.
Bertha cooks evenly and quickly every time, yet retains moisture, adds flavour and taste while reducing serving time.
Temperatures and cooking times can be tailored to suit every different need - control and hold the temperature of Bertha throughout service.
Surprisingly tall cooking chamber with option of ceramic top shelf – has the largest cooking surface but is the smallest unit on the market
There is no end to how versatile the Bertha is – game, burgers, fish, scallops in their shells, lobsters, vegetables, pizzas, breads, half chickens and any variety of meat cuts, especially on the bone are cooked to perfection with a cooking time of 10 minutes and under
Cooking on a Bertha adds new and exciting ideas and flavours to your menu – works with any cuisine!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SEASON A GRILL?
Before we dive into the nitty gritty, what does it actually mean to season a grill? And before you ask, no, it doesn't mean sprinkling your favorite herbs and spices onto the grates.
'Seasoning, also known as ‘curing’, is usually done by heating the metal grates, adding oil, then allowing it to cool and absorb, 'Doing so will protect your grill from rust and extend its life.'
The process of heating and oiling the grates will keep your barbecue operating at its best while also making it easier to clean your grill after cooking. It's recommended that you find time to do this after every use but, just as you'd season a brand-new frying pan before cooking, it's especially important to season a gas grill the first time you use it.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO SEASON A GRILL BEFORE YOU USE IT FOR THE FIRST TIME?
If you haven't used your brand new grill before, neither has anyone else. This means the grates won't have been oiled, heated, or have cooked any food until now. Seasoning a grillfor the first time, therefore, is a bit like training it in preparation for its first meal.
'In some cases, cast iron and carbon steel cooking grates will be very vulnerable to rust if heated and cooled down multiple times,' explains Dan. 'Seasoning an uncoated cooking grate will lock in protective oils that will help extend the cooking grates life and help it to work better.'
Besides making your grates last longer, seasoning is also essential for that smoky outdoor barbecue flavor we all crave. 'It's important to season a grill before using it for the first time not only because it helps protect the grill grates from rust, but it also improves the flavor of the food, Seasoned grates will also help you achieve those perfect grill marks, too.
HOW TO SEASON A GRILL FOR THE FIRST TIME
1. PLACE YOUR CLEAN GRATE ON THE BARBECUE OVER A MEDIUM HEAT
Even if they're brand-new, it's always a good idea to give your grates a quick clean in the kitchen to remove any dust or debris that's collected from being sat in storage. If you're seasoning a grill you've used before, you'll need to clean the grates with a wire brush. Once clean, place your grates on the grill and turn it up to a medium heat.
2. WHEN HOT, APPLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF OIL
After ten minutes (or once the grill is sufficiently hot) apply a small amount of oil - just enough to cover the entire surface. 'Use your brush to spread the oil over the grates, making sure you apply a thin, even layer,' says Dan. High-smoke point oils such as canola and peanut oil work best, but coconut oil or standard vegetable oil will work just as well. Turn the grill to high heat for around 15 minutes to allow the oil to cure. Make sure you wear protective gloves for this step.
3. LET THE GRATES COOL
When the oil reaches its smoking point (around 15 minutes) turn off the barbecue and let the cooking grates cool. You might want to repeat the oiling process again for a brand-new grill.
4. WIPE AWAY EXCESS OIL
Finally, once your grates are cool, wipe away any excess oil from the surface using a cloth or rag. You are now ready to start grilling.
Now you've seasoned your gas grill for the first time, the alfresco dining can officially commence. Those long evenings cooking feasts for friends in your outdoor kitchen are just around the corner... At last!
