2019 Top Sellers

2019 TOP SELLERSFor your information and planning, here are the Top Ten Sellers, based on units sold, for our main categories of products. The percentages shown for the Top Five are compared to the total for those in the top ten, not overall. A quick analysis shows

Like last year, a quick analysis shows

  • That within our Gas Logs category, FireBalls continue to be huge (both Vented and Vent-free).
  • That more expensive styles sell more than lesser expensive ones.
  • The converse is true with Solaire, where our portables are the top sellers, but that is expected, given the greater cost difference between a portable and a backyard grill compared to differing gas log styles. The 27XL continues to be the best-selling “big” grill, being the convergence of size and price.
  • Within Bromic, 2019 continued with Electric outselling Gas at about 2 to 1.
  • Platinum Gas and Tungsten Gas were equivalent in sales for the first time. It appears there is a “Coke/Pepsi” choice being made by end users. Tungsten Portables remained strong.
  • FireBall colors were added. The best selling are mostly the darker colors, as the black soot from vented burner flame is not as noticeable against them..
