The outdoor cooking market steadily grows every year. Lots of people are looking for, as soon as the weather permits, the outdoor life and authentic cooking. All the available 21st century high-tech gadgets sometimes ask for an escape back to the authentic way of life. As vivid BBQ fanatics, Jaco Bruinekool and Martijn Schimmel saw the perfect opportunity to respond to this fast-growing market.

Our unique products are a direct answer to the increasing demand of the market to beautiful BBQ products with a high price / quality ratio. With a typically Dutch name and unique products of a traditional Dutch quality we respond to the demands of customers as also vendors and dealers. Despite the fact that we are entering the market as a new player, our vision is magnificent. As owners of Bruinekool and Vuur&Rook, we have the important and required experience as entrepreneurs. We want to use this experience to make The Windmill Cast Iron a great success. At first we will focus on the Dutch market, but our goal is to become market leader on the whole European market.
