With the Tristar GR-2864 you not only make delicious sandwiches, but you also grill meat and vegetables with it. By folding the contact grill completely open, you also use the contact grill as a grill plate. With the rotary knob on the side you set the temperature with the 5 temperature settings to 225 & # 8451 ;. In this way you determine how crispy the toast is or how well done you want your steak to be. When the grill is opened, set it to 180 & # 8451 ;. Is the green light on? Then the grill is at the right temperature that you have set. Thanks to the non-stick coating, ingredients do not stick to the plate and you can easily clean the plate. With the spatula you remove leftover cheese, so that cleaning is even faster.
