I have not seen this anywhere else than WalMart in-store. I figured I could risk $10, and besides, I could return it if I didn't like it. This baby in going to the van. It can stand on end for storage.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Mini-Indoor-Grill/53264465 Works like a George Foreman grill with drip pan. I've never had a Foreman, so can't really compare.

1000W. Takes about 2 minutes to preheat from room temperature, then 1-5 minutes to cook whatever.

Looks like 5/8" is about max thickness of food on plates, which are a bit larger than 5.5" X 8". Open-face ham and cheese in less than a minute. Hamburgers took about 4 minutes, but I won't cook them in the van. French toast is a winner in about a minute.

Grill plates are not removable, but wipe clean easily with a damp rag.

Ms,

Good info... just a resistance element, so no pure sine wave issues I guess. Worth a try just for a good grilled cheese sandwich.... Buttered toast perhaps? tough to do in a microwave!

Still haven't tried the Induction plate with my setup... lotsa holiday events going on.

I see those at our town dump (recycling facility) all the time. I should pick one up and try it out someday!

Probably not worth the space if you have a full kitchen. After Christmas should be a good hunting time.

I'm also thinking garlic bread to go with the lasagna I freeze, then reheat in the MW.

I of course make all that stuff in a teflon skillet on my butane stove, hamburgers, not so much in the van although I haven’t tried it yet. Report back on how the inverter handles it. Price is right and it looks like the cooking times are short. 7min @ 100 amps DC is about 12 Amp-Hr/food cycle. Probably two or three times as much as a microwave but microwaves ruin bread and don’t leave those great grill marks!

All comes to he who waits! Went to the dump this morning and, lo and behold, a George Forman grill in all it's glory just waiting to be snatched up by KOV! ;)

When I was driving a truck my partner and I bought a small George Foreman grill and used it to grill steaks. We just sat it on the foot rest with the door open. It worked pretty good for that.

That gives me the idea that I could set this thing on the side door step with the door almost closed.

And Congratulations, KOV. What are its dimensions?

It's still in the van too cold out to play with it but I would guess about 7" or 8" sq by maybe 4" high.

Hope you got the little “lower lip” drip tray. Knowing how successful you are at your town refuse transfer station (KOV’s supply depot) I expect you will soon have a selection of sizes and wattages. You know, the 1/4 lb burger for one size, the two manly steaks size, the vegan roasted chills and onions size, the breakfast sandwich for 4 size, the SW chorizo and huevos quesadillas size, oh I could go on...... Oh I just thought it might grill shrimp!!

Grilled cheese is done almost as soon as the lid is closed.

RD, I passed up a couple of quesadilla makers in your neck of the woods. Didn't know they existed.
