K21161 - Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill w/ 5 Interchangeable Plates
bad choice for purchase
I am very disappointed in this purchase. I should have sent it back within the 30 day period to get my money back. The grill does not close properly and does not cook the food evenly. I should have stuck with the Foreman Grill..
Great product - could use some tweaking
-Large cooking surface (4-5 6oz steaks on one side) that can be opened flat to cook even more
-dual heating elements - you can cook at two different temperatures at the same time
-indicator lights to let you know when desired temperature is reached
-variable temperature heating controls
-takes up little counter space - yes it's big but it's designed to store upright and takes up less space than a small toaster.
-removal plates make cleaning a lot easier
-floating hinge - love that it will cook even the most thickest of steaks!
-the waffle trays are terrific! Make one huge waffle that will feed a family of 4. I never made waffles before this, and my husband can't get enough of them
-griddle plate provides a large cooking surface, and it's not slanted so I don't have to worry about my omelette running into the oil drip pan.
-comes with a recipe book
-inserted drip cartridges rather than exterior drip trays
-The bottom side tends to cook at a higher temperature - perhaps that's just mine?
-no searing plate use for then you open the unit flat
-the temperature controls are knobs, and not all temperatures are marked so you're never quite sure if you're REALLY cooking at say, 375. Digital or more markings would be better.
-Love the oil drip cartridges, but try not to move the unit or the remove cartridges during cooking - they are extremely hot, and may give you a bad burn.
-the oil drip cartridges can get full without your knowing and will then overflow inside the unit, and it's not easy trying to clean the inside of that thing. I finally came up with pushing a wad of paper towels to the back of the unit with a knife, set the unit upright, and let paper towels and gravity do it's work. still a pain though, and you still can't get into all the little knooks.
-there's a gap between where the plates attach and the outside of the unit. sometimes batter or other fluids will get inbetween the two and I still haven't figured out how clean in there
-instruction manual could use a lot more detail.
-apparently there are two sets of hinges, one toward the front which are not mentioned, and the floating hinges in the back. I still haven't figured out why the front ones will sometimes be in the open position.
-instruction manual instructions don't always coincide with the recipe instructions.
-only ONE griddle plate?!?! what gives? :(
-I can't find the omellete plate anywhere - not here or even on Hulk's website. if you're not going to offer it then don't advertise it!
Given all that, I still love it. The meat comes out juicy every time, and I can prepare a meal for the whole family at one time, within minutes. Love the waffles, so fluffy, so dreamy, so hotel breakfast bar! I feel so decadent every time we make those big, fluffy delights. So I'm sending mine back for an exchange and can only hope that the temperature issue was just a fluke with my original one.
My Ultimate Grill
Very well made, easy to use and clean, large grilling area and i just love how easy it is to store.
BEST INDOOR GRILL TO HAVE
LOVE THE INTERCHANGEABLE PLATES, I LOVE THE WAY IT COOKS AND THE TWO OIL CATCHER DRAWERS IT COMES WITH. THE BEST PART I LOVE IS THAT YOU CAN OPEN GRILL UP AND IT TURNS INTO TWO GRILLS OR U CAN USE ONE SIDE AS A GRILL CHANGE OTHER SIDE PLATE AND NOW YOU CAN COOK BREAKFAST AND GRILL SAUSAGES, BACON OR TOAST BREAD. IS THAT GREAT OR WHAT! TWO GRILLS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. WHERE CAN YOU FIND SUCH A BARGAIN. FOOD MAY STICK BUT NO PROB.. JUST USE A COOKN SPRAY AND MAKE SURE 2 WATCH COOKN PLATES AFTER USING. IT'S HOT WHEN U OPEN SO USE COOKN MITTENS AND DON'T STAND TOO CLOSE. OTHER THAN THAT IT'S A GREAT INDOOR GRILL TO HAVE AT HOME. I HAD TO GET ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER SHE LOVED IT, ESPECIALLY THE WAFFLE PLATE.
Best Grill Ever!
I spent months looking for a new grill. I was not happy with the design of another popular grill because of the drip pan. You would think they would come up with a better design since it would be so easy to spill. Anyway, this grill tops all the other grills by a thousand times. It has all the features that I was looking for and then some. First of all the ability to set a precise temp on the grill is like none other and then to have that option on both sides is a dream! The drip compartment is the best design and the whole grill is extremely easy to clean. I made a London Broil the first day I got it and it was the BEST Broil I have ever made, I also made some from scratch whole wheat waffles the next morning and they were great too. I have cooked bacon, chicken, fish fillets and everything cooked terrific and I couldn't be more thrilled with this grill. My only disappointment is that I didn't buy it sooner. The large size is another wonderful plus. Thanks for a perfect product. I have already recommended this grill to several friends and co-workers.
I PURCHASED THIS GRILL AND LOVE IT. IT COOK GREAT, CLEAN UP VERY EASY AND NICE LOOKING,AND AS OTHERS HAVE SAID ITS BIG THAT IT IS, BUT IF YOU STAND IT UP IT FITS PERFECT UNDER YOUR CABINETS AND DON'T TAKE UP MUCH ROOM AT ALL. (BUY IT YOU'LL LOVE IT)
This is THE best indoor grill I have ever used. I had a Forman before - this one cleans up so easy!!! The removeable plates make it a snap it clean. I've not had any trouble cleaning the grease traps - as long as they are put in the correct place, they work fine. I've made pancakes, hamburgers, chicken, grilled cheese, on it and have been very happy with the outcome. The easy-pay makes it very affordable. It is big - but that's what makes it great. You can make different things at the same time.
I order this grill two months ago and I've used it everyday, it's a wounderful grill.I'm very pleased with. I gave it a 5 star I would like to give it a 10.
Bought this a couple of months ago and love love love it. Was surprised at how big it is. Made one huge waffle and was enough for all 3 of us. Have cooked steaks and vegies on it and does a wonderful job. Great for a big family...mom can eat with everyone else and not be hooked to the grill because you can do so much at one time. Love the dual controls...great product.
let me start with the negative....it's big and heavy. That being said let me tell you the positive....its BIG lol...I have 3 kids and a hungry husband and I made a dinner which usually takes me 2 hrs in 45 min!!! NOTHING stuck to it, everything cooked wonderfully and grease dripped out of the way so I didnt accidentally spill it like some other grills have their trays just sticking out there in the open. Because it was so big I was able to cook 8 stuffed burgers all at once and let me tell you these werent no oreo cookie size burgers either. I made waffles for the whole family in 5 minutes! I wish it was a little lighter since im a small woman but boy its worth it. Getting 1 for several family members for xmas since they tried to take mines!
I liked it.
I loved the removeable waffle plates .Also the large cooking surface.Easy clean up.
As soon as I got my grill I went and bought two of the biggest T-Bone steaks. The grill cooked the steaks very well. I was so impressed so I tried Grilled Chicken the next night. Well to make a long story short I have no stop using the grill since I received it!! It was a wonderful investment also the clean-up is very easy. I also love how the grease drain in the canisters. (very easy clean-up)LOVE IT!!!
