A great little gadget that solves the "No Grills Allowed" problems for us apartment dwellers. We used this to make burgers & brats w/ sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers. It did the job wonderfully! We look forward to using it with a group of friends next time.
This is a fun way to have a dinner party - HOWEVER, it only accommodates 4 people -- with two persons on each side - that way, each gets two raclette dishes and has ample room for their food to be grilled on top. I cannot see how 8 people could get around the small cooking surface.
But, hey -- for 4 dinner guests it's great .
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not large enough for 8 people
Cooking on the raclette gril is fun for the whole family, or a group of friends. It's something different that gets everyone talking and laughing. Everyone should try it at least once and I am convinced they will be hooked. The only draw back is that it is too small for 8 people.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect -just as pictured
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very high quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? right on the mark
We were introduced to raclette at a friend's house a few weeks ago. The hostess had 2 of these grills for the seven of us. Worked great! We put veggies on one and meat on the other. So I ordered 2 grills for our house too. We've used one already with 4 adults. Worked flawlessly. Such a tasty, fun meal!! I don't know how you'd feed 8 people on just one grill. Just because there are 8 openings for trays doesn't mean the surface will be big enough to cook for 8 at a time. Oh! And my friend (who lived in Switzerland for a while) uses Havarti cheese. Easier to find and less expensive; plus mild and it melts wonderfully! She says it's very similar to Raclette cheese - I wouldn't know. :) But I do know... it's DELICIOUS!!!
On the initial use, be sure to let the grill warm up a few minutes on high to remove the factory junk on top of the grill (after washing it, of course). Buy one and Enjoy!!
