As you can see from the above 3 images, the swing grill looks the same and offers the same cooking space (depending on what size you order) across each of the models.  However, you will note underneath both the Apres & Lumiere is a removable Ash Drawer and Hopper, plus the Lumiere has the added highlight of LED lighting around the casing

The Ash Drawer and Hopper are fitted to the Apres and Lumiere models, which are both recommended if you plan to use the swing grill for longer periods or all-day events and won’t have time to continually change the coals in the charcoal-exposed area.  The Ash Drawer and Hopper capture the ash.  It also ensures sufficient air circulation particularly during peak serving times.

The Lumiere model has the added highlight of the LED lights, which are extremely eye-catching and definitely draw the crowds to your gastro stand.  The LED lights can be retrofitted if desired.

Whether you order the Avanti, Apres or Lumiere you will be acquiring an asset, which will provide you with a revenue generator for a long time into the future, whilst also drawing the crowds.
