Anyone else see this on their Facebook feed and become intrigued? I think what caught my eye was the pictures of it's use for Takoyaki.

 

 

A4 Box

 

Four different colors, four different temperatures.  Kerry, take one for the team.

Nah - probably not. I'll let someone else do this one!

I hadn't seen this before, but after the link, it looks more like a gimmick than anything else to me. How many times do you make takoyaki?

Also useful for ebelskivers, poffertjes, faux doughnut holes ... and quail eggs!

Haven't seen it and now I know that Kerry's Facebook ads are better than mine. 😉

Hopefully that has a travel case, that's a stove for the road.

 

If I wasn't saving my pennies for a vacuum chamber, I'd be mildly interested in this device.

A solution for a problem nobody has.

Maybe in a college dorm it'd be useful.

And 65C is more than "warm".

Color choices are bizarre.

But it'd make a great WTF wedding gift.

It’s a kitchen toy. What part of that don’t you get? What’s not to love?

The colors. Should be white , black and stainless steel...maybe red... so they'd fit in in most kitchens.

 

But dorm cooking may be the best fit.

 You are so right. I want it in smoky green but it’s only available in white for 110V service. 😂

That would be my first choice as well.   White's OK though.

Interesting that they show a variety of inserts but only the smooth and grill pans come with it. The others are separately ordered. I'd consider doing Smoke Green for a travel trailer but 220AC rules it out.

Lol, what's wrong with me.   I must be having a weak moment. I keep staring at this thing.  It's going to cost  $258--because I would want the octopus ball pan and you have to buy that set separately.

 

I don't need any more toys lol.  

 

 

If only it came in pink...........

There is a solution.  Get a 110/220 voltage converter.  I have a heavy duty one I use for equipment from Europe.

I am, in fact, somewhat intrigued. 

 

Also a fan of the smoky green. Though I'd prefer a red one.


Don't ask. Eat it.

I've had 2 George Foreman. I found them to be a pain to clean. I don't recall any temperature control on the ones I had.

 

My only thought was that it would provide a  way to cook outside when use of fire was banned because of fire hazard.  Of course I'm still a ways away from getting our travel trailer so at the moment it's just a curiosity.

Update thought.  Whenever I see offers with the "only so many minutes" clock I experience scepticism as to why they're trying to panic you into a decision.
