ATLANTA (Oct. 10, 2012) — Calphalon®, the leader in premium cookware and kitchenware, announces the launch of the Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill giving busy families a broad range of cooking options with a single countertop appliance.
Featuring two reversible nonstick plates, each with a grill side and a griddle side, the 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill works five different ways: as a grill press, a griddle press, a flat grill, a flat griddle and a combination grill and griddle. The 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill opens completely flat to double the cooking surface, or can be used with the lid closed, as a contact grill or panini press.
“This is an amazingly versatile grill,” said Justin Johns, Senior Brand Manager for Calphalon. “Because the Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill’s nonstick plates can be positioned five different ways, cooks have the ability to easily prepare a wide variety of meals. They can use it to prepare eggs, pancakes and sausage in the morning, a toasted panini for lunch and then grill chicken or a delicious steak for dinner.”
The Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill is large enough to cook for the whole family. When open flat, the grill holds up to eight hamburgers or chicken breasts and closed, it holds four hamburgers or chicken breasts or two panini sandwiches.
Calphalon’s exclusive Opti-Heat System™ ensures accurate temperature control and even heat delivery. Foods cook evenly and thoroughly, for reliable results you can count on every time. Butterfly shaped heating elements underneath the plates distribute heat evenly for consistent cooking results, while an easy-to-use temperature selection dial allows for precise adjustment from 225 F to 450 F.
The reversible grill and griddle plates feature high-performance Calphalon nonstick surfaces for effortless food release for even the most difficult ingredients such as cheese or eggs. Plates are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. The grill also features a front access, dishwasher safe drip tray that collects drained fat for healthier cooking, as well as built-in cord storage.
The Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill has a suggested retail price of $129.99. It is available online at calphalon.com and jcp.com, and in-store at select Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s locations.
