Indoor grill for setting and forgetting

Hamilton Beach Set & Forget Indoor Grill incorporates a temperature probe to achieve precision cooking.

Set. Forget. Remember, then eat. Hamilton Beach

"Set it and forget it" was a popular (or at least famous) infomercial catch phrase for a Ron Popeil device, but apparently "Set & Forget" doesn't fall under Ronco umbrella of catchphrases ("Now how much would you pay?"). By removing the "it," Hamilton Beach may (or may not) have separated themselves from the original, but the fact that this indoor grill makes use of an integrated temperature probe is certainly catchy to some extent.

The Set & Forget® Indoor Grill may not have anything to do with the famous pitchman, but it certainly shows its inspiration in its features. The idea is to insert the thermometer probe and an audible tone signals when the food is ready. For those who prefer not to forget their food while it is cooking, the choice remains to set the cooking time and grid temperature.

The large digital display is easy to read and shows the grill temperature and the internal temperature of the selected meat. With 72 square nches of cooking space, the grill certainly isn't the largest one out there, but it should be able to accommodate two serving portions at a time. The size allows for the nice convenience in that the nonstick grids are easily removed and are dishwasher safe. The floating hinge lid adjusts to food of different thicknesses, allowing for even cooking no matter what you are grilling.

It would seem appropriate to conclude that you should wait, because there's more, but you'll just have to wait for the infomercial to hear that line.
