    TV grill gizmos observations

    I channel surfed across two infomercials. One for the big boss grill and
    one for the express grill.

    The hosts were Vicky Lawrence and Kathy Mitchell, respectively. They each
    have a male sidekick to ooh and ahh over the dishes as if is seeing food
    for the first time! Just once I'd love to see the sidekick remark "that
    tastes like crap!"

    They were both expertly demonstrated and with the magic of TV churned out
    some interesting "no stick" dishes. Vicky was easily the better host.
    Kathy has a voice that was just screetchy and she looks plain evil, imho.

    A couple things I didn't like about either is neither had a thermostat,
    just a timer. Neither had a floating hinge, like George Forman's grill
    has. And there's no fat run off like GFs has, so any fat rendered sits in
    the food while cooking. Neither product mentioned the actual surface
    cooking area.

    The big boss grill had more inserts than the express grill. The big boss
    cost 2 payments of $20 while the express asked for 3 payments of $20. I
    didn't order either.

    Another thing all the grills don't advertise is if any of the foods don't
    touch the top burner, it isn't exactly even cooking. I learned that early
    on with my old GF grill.

    I tired of the GF years ago and tossed it but as luck would have it, a
    BUM!!! gifted me another one. "If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no
    luck at all."

    Do you own a countertop grill? Happy with it?

    No never had the desire. I bought a grill pan and am happy with it.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Bought a small George Foreman years ago. It's in my pantry. I like
    a grill pan. Also the best is outdoors on the bbq.

    sf,

    Dark side??? http://i30.tinypic.com/2cr7lmx.jpg

    It was put in during the 1969 kitchen remodeling by the original owners.
    I would never have thought of something like that so, thanks Naomi!!!

    Best,

    That's right! I forgot you had one with all the talk about George
    Forman grills. I find I'm using my grill pan a lot more these days.
    It's a big one that goes over two burners. When I had electric, there
    were two hot spots and a cold spot in the middle. With gas and the
    accompanying heat inefficiency, I find the entire thing heats up now.
    My new grill is a real b*tch to clean, so that's another reason I use
    the grill pan more now too.
