Cooking with Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus
Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus works so well it almost feels like magic. It cooks reasonably fast and the finished product looks great and tastes amazing. It really does make the best sausages – they are perfectly cooked and very juicy. They taste just like if you had done a perfect job outside on a grill.
It does seem like the outer sides of the plates receive slightly less heat so the sausages on sides might receive a little bit less browning. If you want a little bit more browning you can leave your sausages sitting in the cooking plate as it will keep cooking for a bit as it takes a moment for heat to dissipate.
Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus doesn’t require preheating. Breakfast sausages and patties take about 7 to 8 minutes to cook whereas larger dinner sausages take 10 to 15 minutes.
Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus comes with 3 grill plates: morning sausage plate, dinner sausage plate and patty plate. All of them have nonstick coating. They are super simple to install and remove (takes seconds).
Drip pan works well however it could be larger as if you cook extra juicy sausaged it might overfill. That won’t be an issue in most cases though.
Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus is very simple to use. You just insert your sausages, close the lid and press the “Start” button. It will automatically beep and turn off when sausages are done.
Another great thing about Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus is that it doesn’t create a mess. There’s no splatter, the grease goes to drip tray, plates are dishwasher safe and have nonstick coating so they are easy to clean.
There is no mention in the manual whether the drip tray is dishwasher safe or not.
Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill Plus is exceptionally good sausage and patty grill. This is definitely a must try product!
