Founded in 1981, Maverick Industries, Inc. entered the home appliance market with an innovative line of electronic barbecue grills designed and manufactured in New Jersey. These upscale, high-quality products were introduced by leading department stores and specialty retailers across the country and established Maverick as an important innovator in consumer products. Later in the decade, Maverick also began producing ceramic indoor electric grills and other appliance products. We continue to innovate in the electric grill market with the 2015 launch of the new Electric Char-B-Que line of state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor glass grill products. In 1991, Maverick introduced the BarBChek, the first electronic LED cooking thermometer. The BarBChek was a simple handheld probe with 4 color LED’s that indicated the food temperature from Rare to Well Done and was an instant success. In the following years, we expanded our line of digital cooking thermometers to include fork thermometers, roasting thermometers for oven and grill, candy & oil thermometers with presets for different results, and many specialty units, some even with voice features. Maverick now offers the broadest line of digital cooking thermometers with a model for virtually every purpose.
