In 1960, MHP invented the product that has changed the way the world cooks-out. Modern Home Products Corporation was founded in the mid 1950's by Walter Koziol. In the beginning the company created decorative outdoor gas lighting for residentail applications. As the gas lighting business expanded, Walter explored other ways in which to utilize gas in outdoor products. The first outdoor gas grill was introduced to the consumer in 1960. The round design was 22 1/2 inche sin diameter with a hood that was a standard design for charcoal grills of that time. The brand name was "Perfect Host".
Continuing to improve on earlier models, Koziol engineered the first rectangular cast aluminum grill with a hinged lid. It remains the industry's most popular design to this day. Modern Home Products Corporation continues that standard of quality and constuction in our current product offering.
Constant improvement has led to creating SearMagic cooking grids and warming racks, a patented H Style stainless steel burner, no rust exterior construction, and Sta-Kool stainless steel handle to name a few.
In the five decades since MHP invented the first gas grill, they have led the industry in developing new features to improve grill construction and function. Encompassing the sum of the innovative MHP technology, the Chef's Choice line emodies the solid, dependable gas grills from which all the MHP lines are built. The Chef's Choice line provides a wide range of features, sizes, and options to offer a grill for every size family and budget.
