Our Story

Thanks to our faithful customers and supporters, Grillo Essentials has been named an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club! It is only with your continued support that we have gotten to where we are today and achieved success. Thank you.


The Idea

From basic necessities to simple indulgences, all Grillo Essentials products are created out of a need, which; as the saying goes, is the mother of all invention. Thus the name Grillo Essentials.


Established in 1996, Gina Grillo is the sole proprietor of Grillo Essentials. Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State, all products are designed by Grillo and produced at the Grillo workshop.



100% Handmade

Using only simple and natural ingredients and materials, considerable attention is given to comfort, fine details, and quality.
