Not hot enough to properly char my sous vide caribou steaks. A long bath at 136° followed by 26 seconds at 841° on the cast iron produces the perfect blast of flavor one expects from such a high flying meal.
I purchased one of these the last time around and am fairly satisfied. I make sure it warms up for at least six minutes and so far have only cooked steaks on it and it is nearly smokeless. A bit pricey, and it does take up a fair amount of counter space, but at this price I would probably buy one again. At the rate the have and are selling it would probably be a good bet to wait a little more.
@blaineg Looking around the kitchen, there ain’t too many square inches that don’t have shit piled up on them. Holidays are a bad time to try to push something like this.
I got the Put-It-Away pile.
The To-Be Assembeled pile.
The Returns pile.
The What-The Fuck-Is-It pile.
The This-Has-Always-Been-Here pile.
The Gotta-Be-The-Kids’ pile.
The So-THAT’S-Where-That-Smell-Is-Coming-From pile.
I have this. It is truly the best indoor smoke free cooker I have ever owned, and it is smoke free. To get a good sear you have to preheat for 10-15 minutes, but besides that it’s the best indoor grill alternative!
@jeffdoh@st_ellis It looks a lot like a JennAir indoor countertop grill with downdraft and range burner elements. And I agree that would beat the Philips, but it’s not the same kind of product at all.
I grew up with a JennAir and loved it tonnes!
