Features

  • Professional Endorsement

    Endorsed by Eric Theiss who is a chef and a culinary expert. Therefore, it stands to reason that this product is fairly decent and a unique way for you to cook foods at home in less time.

  • Cooks in Minutes

    It cooks a full meal in a matter of minutes, ranging from scrambled eggs to steaks. That makes it perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

  • Safe and Innovative

    The unit is safe and innovative. Combining heat and microwave energy, it cooks your food twice as fast.

  • Dual Heating Elements

    Dual heating elements located on the top and bottom of the unit make it possible to cook delicious Panini sandwiches.

  • Seal in Juices

    The ceramic coated and nonstick grill lid help to seal in flavoring juices so that all of your foods are still mouthwatering lead delicious.

  • Special Handles

    You can purchase the unit in red, black, or white. There are even special handles on the top so you don't get burned when you lock the lid into place.

  • Ceramic Coating

    The secret to the design is the ceramic and steel service. It reaches up to 500° which creates the perfect 360° cooking environment inside, a temperature that will allegedly sear and grill your food.

  • Sears Faster

    It cooks from the inside and sears your food from the outside at the same time. Dual cooking technology helps you to expedite the speed with which you prepare your food up to 70% faster.

How it's Different from Competitors

This unit helps you to keep your food crispy and delicious. When you repeat things like pizza or French fries you get the fried crispy texture that you wanted. Compared to a traditional microwave oven, this is a great thing. Microwaves will not sufficiently heat up the molecules in certain foods which means that the meal doesn't stay warm for a long period of time. It is for this reason that pizza or egg rolls might be crispy as soon as you take them out of the microwave but then they become soggy.

With this grill you can make mouthwatering barbecued ribs or fish at microwave speed. By comparison if you try to use a traditional microwave oven for the same foods they will end up rather rubbery.

Cleanup is significantly easier because nothing sticks, allegedly, to this unit so cleanup is simple. Of course, with a traditional microwave oven the cleanup is much harder given the fact that foods will easily boil over or explode inside. Once exploded it means a whole lot of scrubbing and scraping on the inside of your microwave.

Foods such as crispbread or tortillas are impossible to make in a microwave with this unit you can transform it into a professional Panini press and get the perfect brown lines for your quesadillas. Microwaves are big and bulky, very difficult to carry around but you can take this unit with you anywhere you go even a college dorm room. Preparing breakfast food like French toast or bacon is next to impossible in the microwave but with this unit you can make crispy bacon, omelets, and flaky French toast.

How It Works

The outer layer is made from SPS plastic which is professional grade and designed to withstand high temperatures. Their cooking chamber on the inside is coated with a nonstick ceramic coating. You can cook frozen foods or fresh foods inside. This unit will not be hot when you take it out of the microwave. You should still remove it carefully but be cool to the touch handles are designed to always remain cool so you never bring your hands.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Time Limit

    Never set your microwave for longer than 15 minutes at 100% power when you are cooking with this grill. The website offers specific instructions inside of the recipe library based on what foods you want to cook.

  2. Preheating

    Certain recipes require you to preheat the grill, things that you can figure out based on the recipe library. However, never preheat the grill for any longer than three minutes.

  3. Non-metal Utensils

    Try to use nonmetal utensils like wood or silicone when you are cooking with this grill to preserve the life of the ceramic nonstick coating. The company does not specifically admit that the inner coating can scratch or peel but they do ask that you avoid metal utensils which indicates that it could.

  4. Hand Wash

    It is not dishwasher safe so you will have to wash it by hand with gentle soap and a nonabrasive sponge. Do not submerge any of the components in water.

  5. Don't Need Butters

    You are not required to use cooking sprays, oils, or butters when you are cooking with the grill but some people do find that it continues to add to the flavor.

  6. Let it Cool

    After you have used the grill you should let it cool down before you cook with it again.

  7. Power Settings

    The power setting on your microwave is contingent upon the individual recipe you are using. Almost all of the recipes call for the microwaves default settings but some recipes with a longer cooking time might require you to reduce the power setting. Again, the company advises that you consult with the recipe library they have on their website.

Pros

  • Well Designed

    You can sear or brown food like meat inside this grill. What's more you can bake, steamed, roast, toast, and fry. This grill can hold up to 1.4 L. This grill itself with the lid weighs 2.9 pounds. Micro Chef grill is designed to withstand high temperatures up to 464°F.

Cons

  • Taste

    Understand that while you will get the searing marks on your food when you use this that does not mean that you will get the same taste as something you grill outside.

    The process of grilling is a very delicate science and there is no other method of cooking which will actually embody the exact same taste. Grilling leaves a very specific smoky taste one which can be altered based on the type of wood or charcoal you are using. When you put food in the microwave you might get the same searing lines on your food but you won't get the same taste.
