Made in Antioch, IL. Birthplace of the first outdoor gas grill.
Modern Home Products was founded in the 1950's by Walter Koziol. In the beginning the company created decorative outdoor gas lighting for residential applications (under the trade name of "Charmglow"). 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 a 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".
In his pursuit Walter spent the next three years re-engineering the "round steel grill" and in 1963 introduced the first rectangular painted steel gas grill with a hinged lid, a better and more efficient grill concept. By 1964 Walter began producing the first rectangular cast aluminum grill with a hinged lid. It remains the industries most popular design to this day.
