**Review of Calphalon 5 in 1 Grill Electric. I was given this product gratis to review. All opinions are my own.***
This is a long overdue post … as you know I am not a consistent blogger. Just take a look. I am trying to change my ways. Time management can either be a friend or a frenemy. We use to be frenemies but we are making our way to friendship and I would like to thank evernote. I try to resist the digital age when it came to notebooks and books but I have been won over. I really didn’t understand what evernote could do until I lost my recipe notebooks among all the craziness of The Move 2014. It was not THE move so settle down and let’s talk turkey, ground turkey.
I love homemade turkey burgers and not a big fan of the frozen turkey burgers. A turkey burger can make me as happy as a beef burger.
I truly think it’s in the flavorings and toppings. You know what is good in ground turkey. Onions, Onions, and more onions with some garlic and even mushrooms. This is not a burger to eat if you plan to get close to someone, just sayin’.
Enter the triple onion turkey burger. It contains caramelized onions both in the ground mix and as a topper. The seasoning is a packet of dry onion mix. The rest of the ingredients inside this amazeballs burger is just bonus. When you sandwich it between some potato buns … oh to the m to the g.
I’ve been working on this recipe for awhile now so this has also slowed my progress in reviewing the Calphalon 5 in 1 grill.
What is the Calphalon 5 in 1 grill you ask? It’s a versatile grill that will have you giving away your indoor grill du jour, panini maker, and griddle. Yes, it’s that good.
The Calphalon 5 in 1 grill. I am in love with this grill. LOVE! George Foreman who? I coveted this grill when I attended Eat Write Retreat last year. It was used to make grilled pizzas … which I did not get to eat but it’s ok. I have the grill and I can make my own. Perhaps this weekend (it always comes back to food). Note: If you want to grill pizzas on the Calphalon grill use the sear setting.
I have had the Calphalon grill for way over six months and I still have not used it to the max!
Truly the possibilities are endless; from pancakes to steaks and anything in between. The Calphalon grill is user friendly and the temperature can range from 225 F to 425 F along with a sear function.
My favorite dish to make thus far is seafood and burgers. I still need to practice with steaks and chicken. It’s all user error — trust me. I’m that person who uses the product first and read the directions last. Is that you, too?
My favorite feature on the grill … the removable plates (that are dishwasher friendly) and the fact it can be a griddle or a grill. Also you can griddle or grill with the it opened (which increases the space real estate) or closed (dual cooking).
The only downside for me is that I can’t seem to achieve those pretty grill lines … you know you want it … (It’s 2014 and the song Blurred Lines is still taking up space in my head.)
Overall thoughts: A great investment to have since the grill has multi uses and is easy to clean. The Opti-Heat System allows for reliable and accurate heating results. Better for a singleton or small family versus a large family.
The Calphalon 5 in 1 grill can be purchased through Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Macys, Bloomingdales, and Calphalon. It’s easy to understand why Calphalon is the leader in premium cookware and kitchenware.
Suggested Retail Price is $129.99.
