Rangemate 3 pc set Nonstick Microwave Grill Pan
A sinch to use
I bought two of these Rangemates. One for my husband who is a truck driver and needs a quick way to cook on the go by microwave. He has used this for grilling steaks, steaming vegetables and also, his favorite, grilling hot dogs and sausages. It is easy to use as directed and easy to clean. Thanks so much for a great product.
Not what I expected
This product worked good the first couple times I used it. Apparently do not use it several times in a row (heat some food back-to-back), some food got burnt and to get it clean I ended up scraping off the coating. I tried it again, and it gave off a burnt odor and it took like 5 minutes to heat up a couple wieners. I will not be using it again, I think it is wrecked.
i have one Rangemate and find I use it so often I purchased another could not believe until I tried it myself how it works steak with bacon wrap comes out just Yummy and moist as does salmon and everything else I have cooked in my Rangemate.
Thank you for such a wonderful time saving product.
Great grill pan
Love this and we use it almost everyday!
You can grill all kinds of meats and vegetables.
So far So good!
So far just used this once to cook a couple of hamburgs from Kansas City Steaks and they came out great.They had grill marks and came out nice and juicy! They were really good! Hope to use it soon for my Kansas City Steaks! Once I use it again,if it still works good,I will give it 5 stars! Very impressed!
Broken rim around lid
I loved this product until the binding on the lid broke, now it does not work.
I probably used it 6 times. Must be a defect in the binding.
Let me first say, I'm sure it has its place. It's not large enough to prepare steaks for a family or a gathering. But, inasmuch as I live alone, it seemed to be perfect.
Well, not so much. The major flaw: Yes, inside the meat (or whatever) is heating; but it takes a LONG time for the hard stuff - the whatever kind of metal that's beneath the non-stick - to get hot. So the steak is probably cooked enough...but there aren't any grill marks. That said, if I waited long enough and got the cooking surface hot, I could probably get the SUBSEQUENT steaks done quickly, and with grill marks. Oh, wait a minute...the instructions say you should wait a half hour or so before using again.
The microwave is about speed, but this didn't achieve any. I can pan-fry a steak in a few short minutes. Maybe no grill marks...but with crisp, caramelized sides nevertheless.
I'm usually pleased with my QVC purchases, but this one's going back.
NEEDS SPECIAL SOFT TOOLS
THIS HAS MAGICAL QUALITIES LIKE TURNING SOLIDLY FROZEN FISH INTO DELICIOUS AND WELL COOKED IN 7 OR 8 MINUTES; BUT IT NEEDS TO BE HANDLED WITH KID GLOVES IN SERVING AND CLEANING OR ELSE ONE LITTLE SLIP IN USING A METAL TOOL TO SERVE THE ITEM CAN SCRATCH THE GRILL SURFACE; SHOULD EMPHASIZE THIS IN THE INFOMERCIAL; THESE SCRATCHES WILL PROBABLY REDUCE THE USABLE LIFE OF THE PRODUCT FROM YEARS TO MONTHS.
Best purchase ever!
This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I rarely use my oven now. The meat is actually better than when I cooked it in the oven! Chicken breasts are browned to perfection, juicy and tender. Cleanup is breeze too...no more pots and pans to watch over for me! I loved this so much I got the round one too with the steamer and muffin cups inside. They are amazing. Vegetables are cooked to perfection in a matter of minutes. Muffins are soft and moist. You can't go wrong with these little grills!
What a Great Little Appliance
I saw it demonstrated on TV and found it intriguing. I ordered two, one for me and one for a gift. Before gifting, I tried it out using frozen brat patties. It is misleading to advertise this as 3 pieces. The third piece is a simple paper recipe booklet. I agree that the grill cooks much better than a microwave. The brat patties came out with grill lines, were moist and cooked just right. Clean up is very easy--just wipe with wet cloth. I used 2 paper towels. Beware of the fine print. Do not immerse this device in water, only wipe it clean. There are several tiny holes that will allow water inside and that will ruin it.
The little wonder
EXCELLENT !!!!!! Talk about a time saver . Love this .
Bigger would be better
I really like this pan. I use it primarily for grilled veggies. Would love to have one double this size to do lots of vegetables at the same time.
