Billed as “the most durable grill known to man” the Broilmaster Grill is built with flexibility and longevity in mind. After all the long days at the office and after all the years spent out-working the competition, you deserve a grill that delivers on its promises. The deep Broilmaster grill head surrounds foods with a greater volume of heat and smoke, while its thick cast aluminium construction ensures consistent cooking temperatures – no matter the weather. Offering more cooking configurations than your kitchen stove – you can sear, grill, smoke or slow cook your favourite cuts of meat, the optional adds ons also mean you can have a side burner for simmering or reducing sauces and a rotisserie to slowly roast and self baste meats.

Trees to Go
Transform your garden into a cool and shady tree-filled oasis more or less overnight with Cayman Growers’ 100 gallon trees. A variety of palm trees, including royal, coconut, majool and canary date palms are grown in 100 gallon grow bags, which make them easy to transport and transplant to any other location on island. Most of the trees are already around 20 feet tall – all you need do is peel away the bag and let the tree take root in its new home. Because the trees have been grown here, they are already acclimated to the local conditions and, as there is no import duty to pay on these, they are the economical choice.

Creating an Eclectic Look
Sally Brooker from Absolutely Fabulous is constantly pushing the boundaries of design and bringing new styles from distant shores to Cayman. She has travelled far and wide and discovered a new collection of exquisitely designed furniture that incorporates old railway sleepers, stainless steel, faux leather and high-gloss white table tops. The result is an eclectic look that is contemporary, traditional and globally inspired. It’s old, it’s new, it contradicts – and it’s never been seen on the island before. Her passion for the environment means all the wood is 100% Forest Stewardship Councils (FSC) or reclaimed. This coupled with her new line of hand forged, hand painted ceramics and earthenware goods from Zimbabwe brings a fresh new look to the store.
