Josper have been mastering the grill since 1969. These revolutionary charcoal ovens are unique thanks to expert knowledge and Josper's craftsmen’s love of tradition, new steel alloys and the most cutting-edge designs. They are designed with the demands of professional chefs and the hospitality sector in mind. 

By bringing the added value that comes from firewood (charcoal) to the raw material, Josper obtains those flavours of yesterday, as well as a perfect texture and juiciness. By combining the functions of an oven and grill, a Josper oven can work at high temperatures, sealing the product, smoking and grilling at the same time. These results are unique, and make the Josper Charcoal Oven a piece of equipment that is also unique and can set yuour menu apart from the competition.


What is a Josper Charcoal Oven?

Over the last 45 years, Josper ovens have become revered in hotels and restaurant across the globe. Josper elegantly combines a grill and an oven in a single machine. Whether you run a large hotel kitchen, or a smaller restaurant, Josper offers a point of difference that’ll help set your kitchen apart: ‘from the Josper’ is now a popular term on restaurant and hotel menus. 

Josper is an elegant combination of a grill and an oven in a single machine. It works 100% with wood charcoal. A unique closed barbecue design. Different levels of grilling. Flexible and robust, easy to use, with a front opening door system. Vent system for temperature control.


What sets Josper apart?

  1. HIGHER GRILLING QUALITY: adding the unique flavour of the finest embers; a unique texture and juiciness in all products.

  2. FASTER: 35% faster than an open grill.

  3. DUAL OVEN-GRILL FUNCTION: two machines in one.

  4. LOWER CHARCOAL CONSUMPTION: about 40% less than with an open grill.

  5. Greatly REDUCES flames, preventing food from drying out or burning.

  6. MORE QUALITY IN THE WORKPLACE: prevents the impact of constant heat on the chef.

  7. IMPROVED CLEANLINESS: the ash is stored in a case in a sealed cabinet below the oven.


The Josper Oven’s defining feature is its ability to multi-task; searing smoking and grilling all at the same time. Its unique design also cooks food faster than a conventional oven. A Josper will cook a one-kilogram T-Bone steak to medium rare in 14 minutes—including resting!

A Josper oven also offers a fast, dry heat to create irresistible crisp and charred meat dishes. As it functions like an indoor barbecue, it retains the moisture and flavour of meat when the meat is kept behind closed doors within the oven.

Josper is the perfect partner for the most demanding chefs who want to achieve the highest quality of grilling over charcoal.
