Love this grill so far. After reading a review about it at http://bestelectricgrillreviews.com a few months ago, I just had to get it. I didn’t purchase it from Amazon because they were out of stock at the time. I am always worried about ruining meat on the grill. Overcooking steaks or under cooking chicken. So the fact that it did all of the thinking for me is what had me sold. I have only had it a few days – will update if I find any problems.
First night when it arrived, a gorgeous, thick bone-out rib eye. Kind of an expensive piece of meat for a test drive. I put a little olive oil, salt, pepper and Todd’s Dirt (love this stuff). Waited for the pre-heating which was about 5 minutes. Threw it on and like probably everyone else who uses this for the first time, I watched the lights change. It took about 7 minutes to get to where I was guessing medium rare would be. It looked and smelled amazing.
I put it in a foil tent to let the juices settle. Reset the grill to manual and threw on some asparagus. For those I brushed them with olive oil, salt and pepper and that’s it. Put them on the grill and waited. About 5 minutes and I figured they were done. So it was time to eat!
It was PERFECT. This was the best steak I have probably ever grilled and I didn’t even have to think or guess if it was done.
Next afternoon made a turkey, ham, provolone, pesto panini on wheat. Also delicious. And that night I tried a pretty thick and uneven chicken breast that marinated for a few hours in italian dressing. Again added asparagus after while the chicken rested in a foil tent. It was perfect again. Tender, juicy, and thoroughly cooked. It didn’t matter that it was uneven, but I will do a better job of that in future.
Today, hot dogs. That was an easy one.
So far I would recommend this to anyone. If that changes I will update it.
