This is a review of the 25331 Super-sear model. If you want to get the Hamilton Beach 25331 Super sear 100-square-inch nonstick indoor searing grill, Click Here.
As you can understand from its name, this appliance has a 100 square inch cooking surface that is also coated with a nonstick coating. It’s probably not the biggest countertop unit that we can find in the marketplace, but it is large enough for the majority of foods that you wish to cook/sear.
Another feature that can make this model more versatile is the floating hinge. The floating hinge can be adjusted to fit thicker foods (like steaks for example) or foods that are more delicate.
In addition, this grilling machine has adjustable temperature controls that are displayed digitally. Other features that this unit has are the dishwasher safe drip tray, the stay cool handle and the illuminated sear button.
The Hamilton Beach Super Sear Indoor Grill’s Performance
Unlike some other electric grills that we can find in the market, this product can heats up quickly and is capable of maintaining the high temperatures properly. In fact, it gets hot so fast that there is a good chance that your food would end up being overcooked, so it can take a bit of time to get used to the 25331 model.
The heat distribution of this indoor grill is fine and definitely better than many other countertop units, however the lower plate seems to get a bit hotter compared to the upper grilling plate. That said, there shouldn’t be a big problem cooking various dishes with this model, but what about the cleaning process of this interesting appliance?
To begin with, it’s necessary to mention that the grilling plates of the product cannot be removed from the body of the unit, so you should either clean it in the sink (this countertop appliance is heavy so it could be hard) or by using paper towels while it’s still hot (in this case, you should be careful not to touch the “stay cool” handle that can get extremely hot).
Moreover, you might also have to clean the counter from the mess that is generated by the Hamilton Beach Super sear indoor grill; this is despite the fact that the unit already has a removable drip tray included.
So, it can be quite difficult to clean this indoor design, but if you think that you’re going to like its other features (along with its inexpensive price) then it could be an interesting option for you to consider.
