Modern Home Products Corporation was founded in the mid 1950’s by Walter Kozilo. In the beginning the company created decorative outdoor gas lighting for residential applications. As the gas lighting business expanded, Walter explored ways in which to utilize gas in other outdoor products.
The first outdoor gas grill was introduced to the consumer in 1960. The round design grill was 22-1/2″ in diameter with a hood that was a standard design for charcoal grills of the period. The brand name was “Perfect Host.”
Continuing to improve on early models, Walter 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 construction in our current product offering.
Constant improvement has created SearMagic cooking grids and warming racks, a patented “H” style stainless steel burner, no-rust exterior construction, exclusive GASGARD fuel indicator, just to name a few
When Walter invented the first outdoor gas grill in 1960, a legacy of grills was born.
