With the development in technology, glazed tiles can be produced to simulate almost any look. The introduction of ink jet printers in tile factories has revolutionised the production of glazed tiles. This new technology also allows accurate printing on an uneven surface so a wood or stone product can be simulated in look and feel. The main advantage of this is that natural stone and wood requires ongoing maintenance and sealing, while a glazed porcelain will only require basic cleaning and no maintenance. Glazed tiles also provides a non-porous surface which cannot stain.

Full Bodied

Although full bodied tiles are not as diverse in design as glazed porcelain tiles, they make up for this in the strength department. Full bodied tiles also offer variance in texture which allows a flow of colour from indoors to outdoors with a change in texture offering a non-slip surface in wet areas. The colour of the tile is consistent from top to bottom and there is no surface glaze that can wear off, making full bodied tiles ideal for high traffic areas. They are highly vitrified offering a stain resistant surface despite not having a glazed surface. They do not require any ongoing maintenance other than general cleaning.



Ceramic tile is similar to porcelain tile, and while some companies use the terms interchangeably, they are actually very different. Ceramic tile is not as dense and has a higher absorption rate. This means that it is not frost-proof, and it may chip or damage more easily than porcelain tile. Despite these differences, ceramic tile is a very popular choice for floors and walls. The tile is coated with a special glaze that protects and seals it. This keeps the tile from absorbing stains while improving the durability of each piece. The glaze is also what gives ceramic tile its colour and pattern.

The secret of the Kamado is the ceramic dome. The ceramic shell acts as an insulator to keep the natural oils and moisture in food for incredible juiciness and tenderness. You also get true wood fired flavour because our grills use 100% natural sustainable lump charcoal as a heat source. The shape also circulates heat for more uniform cooking. Now compare this to open grills that let heat escape and cook largely from below. They require more total heat to achieve the same temperature profile as a Kamado. This excessive heat robs moisture from your meat. The Kamado JAN keeps the heat in the grill and the moisture in the meat!

The air controls of the Kamado JAN allow the user to accurately control and regulate the temperature thereby offering endless cooking possibilities and the accessories available also allow the user to cook in various styles which results in the ultimate culinary (braai) experience. The Kamado JAN grills allow you to bake, roast, sear, grill, smoke and even bake pizza with a simple adjustment of the air flow. The bottom line is that you can cook anything in the Kamado JAN ceramic grill.
