New grill line features IntelliKEN Touch™ technology, and new Amazon Alexa skill offers easy access to grilling tips
CLINTON, CT – March 11, 2019 – Kenyon International, Inc. announces its new grill line, featuring IntelliKEN Touch™, a seamless touch control system with twice the number of heat settings and a built-in kitchen timer for added precision. The company also now offers a new grilling resource, available in the Alexa Skills Store for Amazon devices. Consumers with enabled devices can activate this skill, Kenyon Kitchen, to receive cookout advice from Alexa through simple voice commands.
“At Kenyon, we are always looking for ways to make grilling easier for consumers, and now cooking questions are answered on-command and control is at the fingertips of each griller,” said Phil Williams, president at Kenyon International, Inc. “As a company dedicated to innovation, we hope our latest updates in technology will make grilling more intuitive and enjoyable than ever before.”
Some of Kenyon’s most popular electric grills, including the Floridian, SilKEN Grill and Texan Grill, are now available with IntelliKEN Touch™ capabilities. The new grill line offers 16 exclusive heat settings and features a wide temperature range between 150 to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. To set one of the grill’s heat settings, users simply swipe a finger across the arc of the touch display, moving up the scale to increase and down the scale to decrease the grill’s heat response. There are also user-friendly “plus” and “minus” touch buttons for prompting precise temperature changes. In addition to these heat controls, each IntelliKEN Touch™ system includes a kitchen timer that automatically shuts the grill down after the timer ends, as well as a feature for locking in preferred settings.
Accompanying Kenyon’s new grill line is a skill developed for Alexa-enabled devices. Found in the skills library under Kenyon Kitchen, this resource allows users to ask Alexa questions around the best heat settings, cook times, recipe instructions, and more, to receive Kenyon’s programmed advice.
“Our company focuses on improving the cookout experience,” continues Williams. “When people choose Kenyon, we want them to feel like they are using quality products built by a team that knows what it takes to grill a delicious meal from start to finish.”

Kenyon began as a small manufacturer of aviation and marine instruments in 1931. As business developed, they led the way with the breakthrough development of ceramic glass cooktops for the high seas, becoming the standard for yachts around the world. The immense popularity of the cooktops led to a high-demand for shore-side models to be enjoyed in homes. From here, Kenyon began manufacturing smokeless and flameless electric grills that are safe for indoor grilling on boats, in RVs or right in your own kitchen.
