New Prices – Solaire Price List Form: SOL-SRP-314

Effective March 10, 2014

Price List is in RasBox at http://goo.gl/QOaYhp

We do not automatically send hard copies of price lists. If you need us to send you a hard copy, please place an order at Orders@Rasmussen.biz or fax 562 698 3510.

We have made changes to the entire Solaire line that make Solaire the broadest line of infrared grills on the market, and enhance Solaire as a tremendous value. We continue our philosophy of not burdening our grills with features we know will fail in the field and cause customer dissatisfaction and service nightmares to dealers. Solaire is the “muscle car” of gas grills (see video Solaire Infrared – the Muscle Car of Grills).

1) Major Price Reductions. Following an analysis of close competitors’ online selling prices (not their higher MSRP), we adjusted our prices, mostly downward, to meet or beat our competition. Out of prices for 83 major grills and built-in accessories, 8 are higher, 6 are the same and 69 are lower.  Average price change by category:
            Built-in grills with rotisserie … -4.5%
            Built-in grills without rotisserie … +4.7%
            Grills on Premium Carts … -20.6%
            Grills on Standard Carts … -14.7%
            Drawers … -30.9%
            Doors … -13.8%
            Insulated Jackets … -14.5%
            Grill Accessories (BBQ Tray, Griddle, Wood Chip Smoker, Steamer/Fryer) … No Change
            Portable Infrared Grills and accessories … No Change

In RasBox at the link above is a spreadsheet with comparisons of new and old prices, along with lowest competitor equivalent price ("equivalent" as best we can judge).

The short notice until the effective date is because of the large number of items that have either price reductions or no changes. Please do not delay purchases for the effective date – identify on your order “New 2014 Prices” and we will accept all orders from you at the new pricing for that and future orders. Please, no back-pricing for orders already received.

2) Covers are no longer included with 30” and larger grills. Covers will need to be ordered as accessories for all grills. This is consistent with the competition. (Carrying Bag is still included with Solaire Anywhere Portable Infrared Grill).

3) One price list. Grills and Parts combined into one document. Parts organized by igniter type and grill size. Not all parts are listed. Please email us at info@rasmussen.biz for a quote of any part needed but not listed.

4) Much more mirror polish on all grills: on the hood, bullnose, control panel and side shelves.

5) Sleek, tapered Side Shelves on all cart, pedestal and post models.

6) Metal knobs on all grills. Black knobs are no longer available.

7) All Pedestal Bases are fully factory assembled with welded construction for 21”, 21XL, 27” and 27XL – no more assembly required, just like our 30” and larger carts have been. New item numbers for these grill sizes installed on Pedestals.

8) 27XLC Square Cart Base now has a single front door, replacing the solid front and open back.

9) New Tank Slide Out Kit (item #SOL-TSK, page 4). All Standard Carts (including many made during the past two years) have installed nuts in the floor to accept this new accessory.

10) New All-Burner “true” 56” grill. Includes: 4 main burners, 2 independently controlled rear infrared rotisserie burners (one spit rod and one motor, two pairs of forks), 2 gas inputs for better gas distribution throughout grill. Truly the largest infrared grill on the market.

11) Two new Premium Carts for 56” grills. The “A” model has Two Drawers, Two Doors and One Tank/Trash Pull-Out. The “B” model has Two Doors and Two Tank/Trash Pull-Outs. Which one you use depends on which grill and which gas type, which is detailed in the item descriptions.

12) New Insulated Jacket for Solaire Accent 15” Grill. The Solaire Accent is our demo program grill, but is also a full-featured infrared grill, which can be used as either a table-top or built-in.

Cook a Turkey on Solaire Infrared
Turkey n Solaire Grill

A turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas is a holiday tradition for many families, and the Rasmussens are no exception. I roasted our family’s 15 pound turkey on our 42-inch Solaire Infrared Grill. We have the IRBQ-42C, which does not have the rear infrared rotisserie burner. Not to worry, as you can prepare almost any kind of food on a Solaire – it’s all about managing the heat.

Troubleshooting Tips
Trouble Shooting

The following are recurring technical calls we have received, with links to answers from www.RasBox.com, our knowledge base:

1) Difficulty starting up or holding a pilot (vent-free or VEI). Blow out the air intake holes of the ODS Pilot. See http://rasmussen.host4kb.com/article/AA-00147/0/1-Vent-Free-Issue-Nuisance-Shutdown-or-difficulty-lighting-ODS-Pilot.html

2) Remote doesn’t work. Change the batteries (transmitter and receiver), then synchronize the transmitter to the receiver with the “Learn” button. See http://rasmussen.host4kb.com/article/AA-00264

3) My logs (balls, shapes, stones) have soot on them. Is this normal? Yes, all pan burners produce soot along with the attractive yellow wood-like flame. See http://rasmussen.host4kb.com/article/AA-00206

 

Business Building Tip

Sample Letter

Do you have a recurring income stream?

Last week I received this Service Contract “Invitation” in the mail from an HVAC company who recently worked on my home air conditioner. Rather than chancing that I might forget to call them for repeat services, they provided me with a program that keeps them top-of-mind for my home A/C and heating needs. They also created a recurring income stream for themselves.

What can you do in your business to create such a recurring income stream?

Announcing … Rustic FireBalls
 

Rustic Fireballs Rustic FireballsRustic Fireballs

 

What makes these spheres and half-balls “Rustic” is the textured surface and weathered appearance for a different twist on the smooth FireBalls Rasmussen has been making for almost thirty years. Rustic FireBalls, inspired by actual antique cannon balls, are available in individual pieces: 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″ 7″ and 8″ diameters, and 4″, 6″ and 7″ half-balls. Rustic FireBalls are available in the same set configurations as with the smooth ones: Uniform 4″; Massive FireBalls (uniform in 5″, 6″, 7″ and 8″ diameters); and Mixed Rustic FireBalls (variety of sizes in each set).

The coloration is different with Rustic FireBalls. We highlight the high points of each ball with a yellow/beige ceramic stain, then dip them in different colors to achieve the Coal, Pewter and Rust colors. These colors are only available for Rustic FireBalls. The colors used with smooth FireBalls are not available in the Rustic FireBalls.

Many photos of Rustic FireBalls are in our photo repository at http://rasmussen.smugmug.com/Alterna/Rustic-FireBalls , with more to come soon.  Photos are available in both full light and side light, as the lighting changes the appearance of the texture.

Rustic FireBalls are found on Pages 44 – 46 in our new price list.

Rustic FireBalls are included in the new Alterna Brochure, which is going to the printer by October 1.

New Log Price List
 

You can access the new price list by clicking http://bit.ly/LogPriceList_2013 or visiting www.RasBox.com.

You can use the Table of Contents on the Front Cover, or the Index on the Back Page, to find what you need. We also have a familiarization video (mini-webinar) available to assist you in using the new price list, linked at http://bit.ly/LogPriceList_2013

The new prices are effective for all orders placed on or after October 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, price changes were limited to our casted products (Logs, FireBalls, FireShapes and FireStones), due to deferred and anticipated increases in raw materials, freight and general cost of doing business. Our prices have been fairly stable for steel and controls (except the EIS controls shown on page 14) so we are maintaining prices for hearth kits (burners, grates and controls).

The price list has increased in page count to accommodate the following items and features:

  1. Pages 8-11 – Added Stainless Steel Burners/Grate Match Lighted/EIS Ready Hearth Kits.
  2. Page 12 – Added a basic Manual Standing Pilot Safety Control Kit (SPK1) on Page 12. This utilizes a Copreci valve we used until 2007.
  3. Page 13 – Added a Wireless Wall Switch for use with millivolt and EIS controls.
  4. Pages 14-15 – Added Stainless Steel Burners and Grates.
  5. Reformatted the Match Lighted (pages 8-11) and various Hearth Kits with Factory Assembled Controls (pages 16-34) to include a “Description” column to assist in identifying the item you need. We needed to print these pages in “landscape” orientation to fit in the information.
  6. Pages 29-30 – Added a Manual Control with Valve Vanisher (Copreci valve) for a variety of burner styles, providing a lower priced control system in the popular Valve Vanisher chassis.
  7. Pages 40-43 – Expanded the FireLine series with more Stainless Steel burner and Valve Vanisher options.
  8. Pages 44-46 – Added “Rustic FireBalls”, which have a textured finished and three new colorations.
  9. Pages 51-52 – Added Millivolt Control (“S”) to Chillbuster CoalFire sets.
  10. Pages 54-56 – Added Manual Control (“M”) and Millivolt Control (“S”) to Chillbuster Gas Log sets. These are the same controls that we offered until 2007.
  11. Pages 58-69 – For Alterna Vent-free sets, added Millivolt controls. Also, we now display the each item number rather than require you to add a suffix for either Black or Stainless Steel chassis. As with all burner and control systems, you still need to indicate “N” for Natural Gas or “P” for Propane.
 

 

 

NEW– Monthly Specials

Happy Independence Day!
Rasmussen Gas Logs will be closed in observance of Independence Day Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5. We will reopen Monday, July 8 at 8:00 AM PDT.The fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence were some of the most accomplished men in the colonies in 1776. By signing this document, they pledged “to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” They felt so strongly that breaking ties with the King of Great Britain was the only way for Americans to live under a government that upheld the self-evident Truths that “all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” The signers were willing to lose all their wealth, as well as their lives, when they declared their independence from the strongest, most powerful country of their day.

Here we are, 237 years later. While some in our country put their lives on the line for us and our country’s ideals while serving in the military and public safety organizations (prayers for the Arizona 19), most of us will spend Independence Day grilling and spending time with family and friends. There is nothing wrong with that, but I suggest that you spend a few minutes in reflection on the many sacrifices Americans have made throughout our history to secure the blessings of liberty for our countrymen. One simple yet powerful ritual to bring meaning to your 4th of July is found at http://www.prageruniversity.com/4th-of-july-declaration.html  Be sure to at least watch the eight minute video on this page, which I hope you will share with your family and friends.

Have a safe and memorable Independence Day.

God Bless America!
