Lekue 2 piece

Lekue Microwave Grill
by Roberta Scher, Contributing Editor

Who "woulda"' thought it? ...Grilled cheese in the microwave. Whaattt?

Technology meets an American classic...think buttery, melted cheese on toasted whole wheat bread! The Lekue grill makes it simple to prepare crispy sandwiches, toasted panini, veggie burgers, quesadillas, fish patties and vegetables in the microwave. (Burgers and hot dogs work too...but we've made our grill dairy.)
This unique appliance features a non-stick metal body with red silicone handles for safe movement of food in and out of the microwave. It is easy to use and dishwasher safe as well.
Simply pre-heat the grill for three minutes in a microwave, and then add your food of choice. Clamp the 2 sides of the grill together and microwave again. It even makes grill marks. The process does require a microwave that has a rotating tray. The grill comes with a helpful cooking brochure.

This little wonder is a time saver, and perfect for one or two servings.  We think that it makes a great holiday gift or treat yourself!
The Lekue Microwave Grill is available  on Amazon, and additional online stores.

When we were in Evergreen, the kosher supermarket in Monsey, NY we discovered a "life-changing kitchen tool:  Plastimade  brand disposable plastic cutting sheets. These plastic cutting sheets, come in a roll and can be cut to any size. They even have a built in sliding cutter, similar to a box of plastic wrap. Eliminate clean-up -- cut to any size--use--then toss.

Now that we've tried and tested the EC PIN created by EC Therm, we are hooked.

Who knew?  At the 2018 International Housewares Show, we had spotted air fryers from several exhibitors,but were not really anxious to try a new countertop appliance. Besides, we’re from the south, and in our language “frying” means deep fry in several inches of oil. After viewing at least 10 different companies introducing various models of air fryers, we decided that on behalf of our readers, we had to stay on top of trends and educate ourselves as to what this gadget can (and we thought, cannot) do. So, we requested 2 test units…a very compact one from DASH, and a family sized air fryer from Gourmia. And, now, all we can say is Double WOW!

The Gourmia 5 quart air fryer is family sized, simple to use, affordably priced and results in crispy, fast cooked results. It uses a system called RadiVection 360-degree technology which provides radiant and convection heat for fast, even, crispy texture.

  •  Makes crispy French fries, vegetables, fried chicken and more with just a spray of oil
  •  It can roast, grills, bake and defrost
  •  RadiVection technology combines radiant & convection heat
  •  Takes less than 1/2 of the time of a regular oven
  •  Simple controls: 60-minute timer with auto shut-off;
  •  Temperature control up to 400° F
  •  5-quart fryer basket accommodates family sized quantities of food
  •  Removable, non-stick fry basket for easy for easy clean-up
  •  Includes recipe book
  •  1-year manufacturer's warranty

We highly recommend this unit, (GAF560) for pricing, ease of use, size and functionality. It is family friendly. Buy it here: Gourmia GAF560
