Hamilton Beach 25219 Review

best

This small (38 square inch) contact grill features a removable, dishwasher-safe drip tray, indicator light, and cool-touch handles; consumers like its quick pre-heat and cook times and relatively easy clean up.

The Hamilton Beach 25219 Indoor Grill (starting at $30, Amazon) is another cheap model that garners strong praise from consumers. Hamilton Beach 25219 reviews on sites like Amazon and Epinions, say this two-sided contact grill (the grill plates enclose the food) pre-heats and cooks quickly, and produces results that almost match what you get with a traditional outdoor grill.

This model features non-stick grill plates that are removable and dishwasher safe (as is the drip tray), making it a cinch to clean, say Hamilton Beach 25219 consumer reviews. It has no temperature controls but reviewers are not bothered by its no-frills features. What some do fault are the rounded corners, which, given its compact 38 square inches (11½x5¼x9¾), means you can't put down two large pieces of bread side by side; if you're into grilled sandwiches, this is important. Otherwise, the Hamilton Beach 25219 is just about right for one large meal or two mini-meals (like breakfast).

Where to buy

Hamilton Beach 25219 reviews also note its ease of use, durability, and affordability. Consumers also like the recipe book and one-year limited warranty.
