The first thing you'll need to do is add the food that you want to grill to this device (before you've transferred it to your stovetop). As long as there's adequate room available on the grilling plate, you'll be able to grill different types of food beside each other, if the recommended cooking times are similar. Depending on your needs, you could choose to grill a couple of large blocks of meat, several smaller pieces, a group of burgers with melted cheese or a bunch of veggies—the possibilities are nearly endless.
Next, transfer your grill to your stovetop so you can cook the food that's on the grilling plate. If you're not sure how long to cook certain food items for, consult the included recipe book. Keep in mind that the grill should be positioned across a couple of the burners on your stovetop instead of sitting on just one. Once your grill is in place on the stovetop, and your timer is set, you can close its hood.
With this type of grill, you won't have to open it to flip your food since it's been designed to cook food evenly all the way through. The only reason you might choose to open the hood and flip the food is if you think it's important to have grill lines showing on both sides of a particular food item. Otherwise, you can leave the hood closed and let the food cook. Once it's done, you can then open it and use your choice of utensil (it's safe to use metal ones) to transfer it to a serving plate.
The Gotham Steel Hooded Grill is made of materials that promote even and efficient heat conduction, including high-grade cast aluminum for the core and a triple-layered Ti Cerama coating. Plus, once you close the grill's hood, it'll create a convection effect that will allow heat from your stove to circulate evenly around and through the items on the grilling plate. Therefore, your food should end up being cooked evenly, without any burnt or raw spots, at a fairly rapid pace. The Ti Cerama coating means it's also safe to use metal utensils on this type of grill since they won't be able to scrape or scratch off this type of coating.
In comparison to a barbecue that you'd use outdoors, which you'd probably have to push on wheels from place to place, this grill is a compact device. When it's cool and the hood is closed, most users will likely be able to carry it under one of their arms or in front of them with both hands. Although you might not be able to get a standard barbecue into a smaller vehicle for transportation purposes, this type of grill will fit into virtually any vehicle. While it's in there, it'll actually take up less space than the average person would.
The grilling plate within each Gotham Steel Hooded Grill has a non-stick nature, which means that foods that normally get stuck to cooking surfaces, like melted cheese, will wipe right off of it. You won't even need to add any cooking sprays or other lubricants, such as butter or oil, to the plate before adding food to it. After a cooking session is done, you'll be able to wipe the whole grilling plate (once it has cooled down) off with a damp cloth.
Some cookware products still contain a potentially harmful chemical compound known as PFOA, but this one is free of it. That means you can rest assured that you won't be exposing yourself or anyone you cook for to its toxicity when you serve food that you've made with this grill.
After a single use of this grill, wiping its plate clean may be all you need to do, but after multiple uses, you might want to give it a more effective cleaning. The entire thing is dishwasher safe, so if you've got a dishwasher, you won't have to do this job by hand with a dishcloth, soap, and water.
Each Gotham Steel Hooded Grill comes with a recipe book and a metal rack. You might find the rack useful when you want to add sauce to the food you're grilling since you'll be able to put the food on the rack and pour the sauce on top. Following that, the sauce will lightly coat the food while any excess sauce drips below the rack onto the grilling plate. Aside from helping you choose an ideal cooking time, the recipe book will also guide you if you're not sure exactly how (or what) to cook with this grilling device.
Besides the recipe book and rack, there's an additional item you'll receive with your Gotham Steel Hooded Grill: a compact plastic burger maker. This device will aid you with shaping your chosen meat into nice-looking, round burgers, which you can cook on the grilling plate after they've been shaped.
If you do your grilling on an outdoor barbecue, you'll be restricted to doing so at times when it's fairly warm out and there's no precipitation. As you may know from personal experience, those barbecue users who live in a cold climate may not be able to use their grill at all in the winter. On the other hand, you'll be able to use the Gotham Steel Hooded Grill at any time, as long as you have access to a working stove. The season and the weather won't matter, as you'll be using the grill indoors.
If you decide to put your Gotham Steel Hooded Grill in the dishwasher, it's best to detach the lid from the grilling plate first. That way, both sides of each piece will end up being cleaned as nicely as possible. If you were to leave the two pieces hooked together, the outside of the grill might get a much more effective cleaning than the inside, while it's the inside that tends to need it more.
