K21161 - Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill w/ 5 Interchangeable Plates
Great idea-cheaply fnished teflon
Received this grill in time for supper last night and made boneless pork chops. Grill worked great except that the teflon is not non stick. Meat stuck to both sides of the grill (top and bottom) and at the temperture they suggested the food burned on the grill and made a horriffic abount of smoke. Then it was time to clean the grill plates and I could not get the burned food off no matter how much I rubbed. Didn't want to use a scrub pad as I didn't want to damage the teflon. I than looked at the flat plate (which I wasn't using) and noticed many flaws in the teflon, almost as if someone had sanded a side of it. You could also feel the roughness of the teflon and the metal. This is a great concept and we were truly looking forward to using it, unfortunately they skimped on the quality of the teflon. Neeless to say I just printed out the return label and will be sending it back.
I like my grill. Sure, it's bulky ad a bit awkward, but that means it has a big surface. And I like the heat controls for the upper and lower parts, and the interchangable plates. I have never been close to having the collector overfill, as one reviewer said happened. I think the meat would have to be very greasy to have that happen. Having been through many styles of these grills, a few of which were Foremans, this is by far my favorite!
I received my Hulk Hogan Grill yesterday and I was afraid it was damaged, because the postal service had banged up the outer box. These products are well packed so everything was fine. I used it to grill salmon for dinner last night it was great and the clean up was easy with the removal plates. This morning my husband made waffles and he enjoyed the size of the waffles. I bought this grill especially for the waffles plates. You can't find any waffles makers this size, so when I saw this on QVC I decided to try it. I have other grills, but the waffle maker makes this one great!
Did not cook well
I bought this grill last year when Hulk presented. What a neat idea with all the plates. I have to say it was a cooking disaster. The liquid didn't drain and the food didn't cook anywhere as well as my Foreman grills did. I returned it and bought the cheaper and better Foreman grill. This is just big and hard to use on a small counter. If it cooked well it would have been fantastic. Stick with the Foreman grill for quick eats.
I bought this grill a while ago, the grease compartments spill over with one steak, the fat goes right on the heating elements, that's an accident waiting to happen. I send it back for refund. it's a pain to clean out where drip containers go in. I would not buy.
