Pros: Cooks great tasting grilled foods, easy to use and simple to clean!
Cons: I want a larger size one!
Eight months ago my husband and I moved into a new apartment with no yard. Since my husband loves grilled food, I figured the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill would be the prefect Christmas gift. Actually, it was after some extensive research online that I discovered the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill was the "cream of the crop" of indoor grills and they were right! We have used the indoor grill almost everyday since we received it in December.
The Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill is no bigger than a standard size pancake griddle with electric coils to emit heat and a iron grill top for cooking your favorite grilled foods. Below the electric coils lives a metal drawer that you fill up with water to a marked point. The water absorbs smoke and prevents your kitchen from getting smokey. It really works!
Anyone can use the Krups Indoor Grill; it's just a matter of plugging it in, adjusting the number temperature gadge to desired heat and pressing the power switch. I recommend you allow for the grill to pre-heat approximately 15 minutes before grilling. We have cooked just about everything on the grill from fish to chicken to beef. With fish and chicken, I recommend that you either marinade the meat in some type of oil or you baste oil on the grill to prevent from sticking. Skirt steak cooks wonderfully and so does shark, chicken breasts and pork tenderloins.
Cleaning the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill in a piece of cake! Since the metal drawer on the bottom of the grill is full of water and collects any excess grease, it makes cleaning very easy because grease does not burn or stick on the surface of the metal drawer. After a quick rinse with soap and water, the metal drawer will look like new! The iron grill is a bit more of a challenge to clean. It truly all depends on whether you oiled the grill or meat ahead of time. The less mean that is stick to the grill, the easier to clean. If you allow the grill to soak overnight in soapy water, it will clean off very easily by morning. The best part is; that's it! The electric coils do not have to be cleaned because grease immediately cooks off of them.
I think that a major pro to the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill is that it is so easy to use. Some appliances are intimidating to use, but this indoor grill is very "user-friendly"! In fact, there are pictures of a variety of grill foods printed directly on the grill base and next to each food is the suggested heat meter number and cooking length. How much easier can that get? All I have to do is look right on the indoor grill to find our what temperature and how long to cook a hamburger!
I recommend the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill to anyone...families, single friends, elderly...ANYONE! It is the best investment we have ever made. If you want grilled food that tastes wonderful and is cooked perfect, you need the Krups Canyon Deluxe Indoor Grill.
