The entire grilling pan is coated with high-quality non-stick material made by combining titanium and ceramic, which makes it extremely easy to wash and clean it after use since food debris is less likely to stick to the pan later on. The stainless steel combined with the non-stick coating gives the grill a modern and chic look and feel!

2. The grill is designed keeping safety as a priority- The grill is manufactured in such a way that it keeps your safety as the priority so you can cook without taking any extra worries at all. The grill needs to be set up properly before it starts working. If not, then the temperature control plug won’t work unless the drip tray and the grill plate are not is placed correctly.

This is done as a safety measure so that it doesn’t heat up unnecessarily or when you are not ready for cooking. Other than that, the heating control can also be separated from the main base, and so you can easily clean up amongst all the nooks and crannies, just when you need to. So, it will only work when you have set the grill properly and are absolutely sure that you want to work on it.

Apart from that, don’t forget that this grill also comes with heat resistant grill handles so that you are extra safe should you hold on to them for support anytime during cooking.
