I had been considering purchasing this grill but was very skeptical thinking it was one of the As Seen on TV gimmicks. I had looked at walmart.com for reviews but there was only one listed. That one review was still not enough to persuade me. After Christmas while shopping at Wal-Mart with my gift cards I noticed that this item was on Rollback for about half the price. I reluctantly decided to give it a try. Along with the Grill I purchase some frozen strip steaks to give it a try. I got home read the book which took about 2 minutes and attempted to cook a frozen steak. I placed the steak in the bag and set the timer, 6 minutes and 30 seconds later I received a piece of steak tough as nails. I was very disappointed and thought to myself that I should never have purchased this item. I didn't know if it was the fault of the grill or if the steak was no good (usually buy fresh). I thought I would try it one more time. This time I reduced the setting to 4 minutes and 30 seconds. Once complete I was amazed the steak was cooked to perfection and tasted great. I was impressed and wanted to try cooking something else. I placed a piece of frozen chicken breast in the bag and set the timer. 9 minutes later I received a perfectly cooked boneless chicken breast.
It has now been about a week and I have been experimenting with different items. This is a great item for a single person or couple. Fast, easy and no clean up.
I am not sure if anyone knows this but this item does not smoke at all, like a broiler/toaster would. It stays cool to the outside touch and needs no clean up. In fact the ladies and I in my office, use it every DAY! to cook chicken, steak, fish. We only have a 1 hour lunch and we all can cook our main meat in no time at all. I highly recommend this item, its perfect for offices that have small kitchens, there is no mess, no smoke, no spill, no clean up. Just use the parchment pouches and the directions on time for your item your cooking. Seriosuly its the best investment we have made.
This product is really great for people cooking for one or two. It is so fast and easy with NO cleanup at all. So far I've made chicken breast, steak and pork chops and they all turned out great. I've had other indoor grills, and this one is much better because you don't have to clean it and you just set the timer and forget about it.
I like to cook, but hate to clean up. With the rocket grill, I'm eating like a king with no clean up ever - NONE!
Who would ever think that you could cook a steak in 8mins and it turn out moist and very tasty. I purchased this grill today, because you didn't carry the panini so I got this instead I would have to say this was a very wise purchase and I would recommend you to purchase this if you have a very busy schedule!
This is one of the most awesome appliances I have ever owned. It's easy, the food comes out juicy and delicious. It even has the grill marks on the food. All you do is warm the grill, put your food in the bag, attatch the bag to the hooks on the grill. Close the lid and set your timer. The food is healthy and moist and delicious. To clean up, all you have to do is throw away the bag. You can cook fish, steak, chicken, hamburgers, just about anything. I absolutely love it. Perfect for one or two people. I grilled hamburgers for 8 one night and we just kept them warm in the oven until they were all done. I am so glad I bought the Sunbeam Rocket Grill.
This is an incredible little machine. It's worth the $98 dollars, and is a steal for $49. It will change the way you eat veggies, pork chops, fish, and chicken
I purchased this solely on the great reviews....was looking for a 'grill' that would coax me into cooking better meals for myself...have a George Foreman grill but it's too much trouble to get out and clean up for just myself! This grill is spectacular!! I have cooked frozen chicken breasts, pork chops, and burgers and all turned out perfect....not a drop of grease has shown up in the drip pan underneath...I have found the times in the cooking guide to be pretty darn accurate and love that there is even grill marks on the food!! This grill will enable me to cook healthier meals for myself and will be great for the long hot desert summers as it doesn't put out any heat when you're using it. I guess my only concern..or fear...is that it will be discontinued and won't be able to get the parchment bags....they are a little pricey but well worth it for the ease of cooking....buy it, you won't be disappointed!!
this product helps the working mom put a decent dinner on the table. Frozen Chicken comes out moist and tender. Have not tried it with steak but can not imagine it to be any different. Great product hope it last.
Purchased this machine about a week ago and have used it everyday since. It is a great addition to my kitchen as I really don't like to cook and this requires virtually no clean up except to open the trash can and throw away the bag.
Food comes out very moist and tasty and I would recommend this product to anyone that asks about it. It is just me and my husband to cook for and I like that I can make different meats for both of us.
I was shopping for a rotisserie and read the reviews on this grill, so I ordered it. It is wonderful! It doesn't take up much more room than a toaster for storage. It is very easy to use. Very fast. Best of all, NO cleanup required! I've used for steaks and pork chops so far and couldn't be happier. You are limited on what you can grill only by the width of the slot, so if you are a bit creative, you can grill veggies as well as meat. I highly reccomend it!!
This grills perfectly every time. I just made 2 boneless chicken breasts - they were so tender and juicy. They were frozen and I just popped them in the grill, and in 9 minutes were delicious, just like I grilled them outdoors!
I tried it 1st with a frozen lamb chob (with bone) I think I cooked it too long (tried 6 min at 1st, didn't cook thru then put it on another 8 min. too long it was a bit tough.) I litterally JUST cooked a fresh steak in it (3:30pm chicago time) MY STEAK IS AWSOME! I like them medium so I followed the 41/2 mins they suggested on the little wheel card them provide to you. I works really well...much better than I expected. I only wish we had a website for it where people could post their suggested cooking times thru trial & error. It would surely help the sale of the machine! LOL! I would highly recommend this one. I only want to cook like this now...FOREVER! I hope the machine lasts that long.
This may be the first product I have ever purchased that had absolutely correct sales points. So I have cooked fresh Tilapia, a thick cut Sirloin steak and boneless Pork Chops. On each occaision I have put the meat in a quart or gallon size bag and let them marinate. When you are ready to cook the meat needs to be started after everything else is almost ready. The food really cooks in the time recommended in the accompanying cookbook.
Take the meat out of the marinade put it in the bags that are included hook them on the prongs close the lid and in 5 min.the steak was med. rare. So far the cleanup has consisted of throwing away the parchment bag. Oh yeah the top of the lid had to be dusted off! I am not exagerating, the drip tray is still as clean as the first day I used the Rocket Grill. It doesn't heat up the house or even the kitchen, you don't have to fire up the barbecue but the food tastes and looks like you did.
I thought George Foreman was the best and decided to use a gift card to purchase this one because face it, I hate to clean up the George. I also do Weight Watchers so something that collects the fat seemed like a wonderful idea, with the parchment paper to keep things moist and juice. Last night I opened it and immediately tried a turkey cheddar sausage ... the grill marks, the taste, were wonderful. This morning I made a breakfast bagel with ham, light cheese and a western alternative bagel, yes it kind of flattens the bagel (like a pannini) but it was soooooooo good. I can't wait to make other things with it. My rocket grill is my new best friend in the kitchen and the best part ... toss the bag and no clean up ... what more could you want!!!!
Fast easy and no clean up. Food tastes great
I really like this grill. I have prepared steak, chicken breast, hamburgers and hot dogs. Everything cooked to the desired degree with almost no adjustment of recommended cooking time.
One of the best selling points to me is NO cleanup. I hate trying to clean grease from a grill or pan.
My only real concern is ensuring adequate stocks of the parchment bags in the future. I did not rate durability since I have only had the grill a short period of time.
My husband and I bought this product about a month ago. We absolutly love it!!! My husband works on a swing shift and every other month he isn't home evenings. Since that just leaves my 3 yr. old and I to eat, this product lets me put our stuff in, and no mess. So I have more time to spend with my son. I don't know what I would do without this grill.
Great product. Make sure to cook exactly as the directions say. Do not cook any longer than the directions call for.
This is one of the better kitchen "gizmos" I have ran across. I hope it isn't short lived, I bought mine on clearance for $12.99 so I couldn't resist (I didn't realize you had to use cooking bags).
I have a George Forman grill and a Hamilton Beach grill but this one is better than both. There is no clean up! if your household is a working household like mine the ease can not be beat. The reason my other grills rarely get used is the mess.
The food taste as good as any other grill or as good as you make it. I found the cooking times are a little longer than the recommended times but you can work with that.
The negative side is the need for cooking bags which cost .35-.50 cents. In my opinion the marketing for the product was poor, they either should literally give the machines away and sell the bags they current prices or drop the prices down on the bags. I could see enough households having this product to drop the bag prices down but only if the machines were cheap to start. The cost of the bags is magnified when you consider one bag cooks about two servings at max, if you have four adult eaters it could get costly.
I recommend the product regardless of it's negatives. You will always find times it is handy to use.
