“ Brand: Debenhams / Type: Grill „
I recently purchased this George Foreman style grill from Debenhams for £45. When buying this product, we of course considered the George Foreman grill. Personally we preferred the brushed stainless steel finish compared with the Grey, plastic finish of the George Foreman grill.
The Debenham's Grill has detachable plates, which was essential for us as having used a grill previously without the detachable plates, we found that it was very awkward to clean. Cleaning the plates couldn't be easier. There is a small button on the right hand side of the grill that you can press that releases each of the plates so you can pop them in the sink for washing. There is a separate button for each of the plates. The plates slot easily back into place once clean and dry. The plates have a non-stick coating which has made cleaning easy, no need for the elbow grease here.
There is also a dial on the Grill which allows you to vary the temperature of the grill, something which I haven't actually seen on other grills. I have found this is really handy if what you have cooked on the grill is ready before the other food you are preparing and you can turn the grill down to a very low heat.
Another design feature that I really like about this grill and something that I haven't seen on other similar grills is that you can open the grill out flat so you can cook off both plates. There is a small black button, which you push downwards which releases a lock to allow the top plate to be laid flat. The grill comes with two containers for catching fat if you use the grill like this too.
One thing that the George Foreman Grill has on the Debenhams Grill is the design in my opinion.. The George Foreman Grill's bottom plate is on an angle, which means when fat from whatever it is you are cooking, runs nicely into the tray that you place at the bottom of the grill. Both plates on the Debenhams Health Grill are flat. This means that the bottom plates needs to become fairly saturated before it over flows if you like. The fat is then passed out into the plastic container.
Overall I am very happy with the purchase and have cooked a variety of things on the grill from steaks to chicken breasts and kebabs as well as bacon, sausages and burgers. You can fit around 3 chicken breast fillets on each plate. Things obviously cook quicker one cooking using one plate and closing the lid.
I'm not 100% sure of the dimensions, but you will need a fairly decent sized space in your cupboard for storing the grill. At a guess, I would say it's about 12 inches wide. The grill is powered electrically. I would recommend this to friends, family and fellow dooyooer's.
