Swissmar KF-77080 8-Person Stelvio Raclette Party Grill Review (Official Site):
The Swissmar KF-77080 comes at measurements of 16.2 inches in length, by 9.8 inches of width, and at a height of 6 inches. So, it looks somewhat different than grills US customers are used to, and buyers will need a table to place it on outside, before cooking can begin. That said, everyone will have a table, so this is not an extra cost, and the weight of the Stelvio Raclette Party Grill is only 7.8 pounds, making it one of the lightest portable grills on the market. What buyers are getting is a genuine portable grill, that they can just pick up and carry out of the door.
The Swissmar 8-person Party Grill, as I mentioned above, looks different than most grills on the market. In fact it looks so different, that some buyers may be put off; that would be a mistake, because it performs incredibly well, despite a small amount of smoke when one first turns it on.
The overall Assembly can be easily done in 20 minutes, making it one of the simplest assemblies out there, and the reversible Grill top, is a genius inclusion. The rougher side, looks like your average grill top, is intended for meats and vegetables, and cooked them just about as good and evenly, as any grill I've ever reviewed. This was surprising, because even the best electric grills have the habit of uneven heat. There is also a generous 1200 Watts of power here too, which is more than enough for a strong heat.
The other side of the grill top is intended for Crepes, and other foods of that nature. Europeans love to eat Crepes, and so the standard of Crepes the Swissmar KF-77080 cooks is second to none; I was blown away. The added bonus for Americans is favorites like Pancakes and Waffles happen to require roughly the same cooking methods and surface, as Crepes, so what Americans will get is, out of this world, Waffles and Pancakes. Meat is wonderful, but lets face it, nobody wants to eat steaks all of the time; in which case, having a grill that can produce world class Pancakes and Waffles as well, is advantageous.
The reversing of the Grill top is a simple operation, as it simply slots into place easily, and both sides are completely non-stick. The compartments underneath are what makes this design unique, and after getting over my initial pessimism, I was pleasantly surprised at how well they cooked sauce, and melted cheese, plus you can also cook vegetables in these. Buyers should think of these small compartments as if they where mini-ovens, because they cook food like an oven does. Use them like little ovens, for food that tastes best when it isn't grilled.
The Swissmar is easy to clean, has a visible display and the manual explains operation, so simply, that just about anyone will feel like a pro first time.
Buyers really are getting a lot for a price of between $120 and $150, as the Swissmar KF-77080 can feed 8 people without a struggle. The reversible grill top will, I'm sure, be a huge success in the United States, not just because it's strange and new, but because it genuinely cooks food that tastes great and adds to the grills repertoire. The small compartments underneath, allow the Swissmar to produce more quantity than other grills, and the non-stick surface makes for easy cleaning. Comes highly recommended.
