The interchangeable cooking trays are laser cut from quarter-inch slabs of stainless steel and designed specifically for what you're cooking. The vegetable grate has small openings, which keep things like green beans from falling through, while the fish grate has thin half-moon openings to keep the fish from drying, breaking, or flaking.
The deep-hopper funnel found beneath the fuel grates and burner is another new addition, allowing burnt wood and charcoal ash to fall through it and into a clean-out bin. With the funnel, you won't have to shovel ash out manually, which is a pretty dirty job. Kalamazoo also added shielding over the burner so it won't clog up from the falling ash.
The Gaucho is handmade to order in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is available in two freestanding models and a built-in version. Pricing hasn't been released yet, but the company is planning to start shipping in late spring 2014.
