Grill steaks, burgers, chicken, veggies, potatoes, and more--rain or shine--with this indoor, electric grill that sits right on the kitchen counter. The unit's extra-large upper and lower 12-by-9-inch nonstick, non-removable grill plates provide even grilling and toasting, plus offer a drip spout and cup to catch excess fat, making it easy to drain grease away from food for healthier cooking. Its professional-style floating hinge precisely positions the top plate to accommodate any sandwich thickness and to ensure both sides of foods, including the popular panini sandwiches, are always evenly grilled. The contact grill features "power-on" and "ready-to-cook" indicator lights, plus variable temperature settings that include Off, Low, Medium, and High. For added convenience, the nonstick grilling plates require little or no oil and are simple to clean. An instruction book with recipes and a cleaning tool with the Cuisinart logo are included.
