Guesswork with grilling is a thing of the past. The new iGrill mini from iDevices helps you determine the meat temperature for perfectly grilled meat every time. Not only that you can do it from the comfort of your living room!
With winter in full force throughout much of the United States, the last thing most people are thinking about is barbecueing. Countless journeys to and from your grill in the pouring rain or wading through the snow to check how that rib-roast is cooking is no fun. Every time you lift the grill’s lid cold air rushes in, temperatures drop and the meat cooks unevenly.
With the new iGrill mini multiple trips are no longer necessary and the grill lid stays closed. The iGrill mini allows you to monitor just how your meat is cooking from the comfort of your living room or kitchen until it’s cooked just the way you want it.
Using the latest blue tooth technology and an associated “app” the iGrill mini provides you real time information about the temperature of the meat as it cooks on your grill. The app provides all the information you’ll need about your grilling progress and alerts you when the meat reaches the desired temperature.
The app also provides you other information including recipes, timers, a customer support line and a less useful but strangely fascinating feature called the iGrill globe where you can look at what other iGrill users throughout the world have recently grilled with the assistance of the mini! Proving that grilling has become totally independent of weather apparently the unit, or its’ big brother the iGrill, is quite popular in Scandanavia!
Setting up the iGrill mini is as easy as downloading the iDevices Connected app from the internet. After the app is downloaded the Bluetooth searches for the iGrill mini and once the connection is made you’re ready to start grilling.
The iGrill mini consists of one probe and the transmitter. The transmitter attaches to the grill via a magnet. Once you’ve set everything up you can program the app to let you know when the desired temperature is reached, sit back and relax. It really is that simple!
If you are cooking more than one piece of meat you will need to purchase additional units but with a suggested retail price of $39.99 there isn’t significant cost to assure your roasts are correctly grilled.
And if the weather is so bad you don't want to go outside at all you can use the iGrill mini in your kitchen's oven.
One problem I did have with the iGrill mini was that the app indicated that the transmitter battery was low within five minutes of connecting everything. Looking at other online assessments of the product suggests this is a common occurrence. The battery is quite common and can be easily replaced.
The iGrill mini is easy to use and works well. If you don’t want to be checking the grill every fifteen minutes even in the best of grilling weathers then this will be a good addition to your barbecueing tool kit. Available from www.iDevicesinc.com, the iGrill mini has a retail price of $39.99.
Time to get grilling in spite of the snow outside!
