New Verycook Plancha Grill gains Rachel Allen’s Searing Seal of Approval
Outdoor cooking just got easier to enjoy with the new Verycook Plancha Grill. Popular in France, the home of gourmet dining, the plancha grill is a colourful gas grill that comes in ten colours with a choice of three cooking surfaces. It’s the perfect, healthier way to cook outdoors without smoky barbecue flare ups and messy charcoal or coals.
Celebrity chef, Rachel Allen says: “The Verycook Plancha Grill is similar to a professional griddle and is much easier to use than a conventional barbecue. Just one click of the lighter and by the time you’ve set up your ingredients, you’re ready to go. It’s as simple as that.
“Having two independently temperature controlled cooking areas means I can sear fish, meat and seafood on one side, then keep food warm on the other whilst I make a quick vegetable stir fry on the other.
“Unlike a traditional barbecue, the plancha grill is a flat plate with raised edges making it is easier to control the food with no danger of food dropping through onto the gas or over the side. Excess fat doesn’t sit around the food but drains away into the drip tray leaving a healthier dish for your friends and family to enjoy.”
Create delicious dishes on your Verycook Plancha Grill using meat, fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables. All you have to do is choose your preferred colour and cooking surface. Features include:
Veryhot – Two flame control knobs to manage two cooking areas separately heating the plancha grill surface to up to 300°C. Turn up the heat to sear on one side, turn down the heat on the other to keep food warm.
Veryeasy – Simply turn on the gas using the piezo-electric lighter and in just three minutes your plancha grill is ready to cook.
The 600 x 400mm plancha grill cooking area is 6mm thick to ensure perfect diffusion and distribution of heat over the entire surface. It’s raised edges channel juices back to the drip tray and prevent food from sliding off the grill and onto the floor.
Verycolourful – Move away from traditional black and stainless steel and explore the Verycook colourful range of interchangeable panels for your plancha grill. Choose from 10 contemporary colours including pink, orange, yellow, red, purple, grey, denim, garden green, Verynox silver, and black.
Veryhealthy – When fat drips onto naked flames, flare ups occur releasing black smoke laced with unhealthy dioxins. By cooking away from the flames and allowing the fat to drain away from the food, the plancha grill is the ideal way to produce healthier, lighter food.
Verypractical – made from brushed stainless steel the Verycook Plancha Grill is perfect to use at home cooking for one to 12 people, or take it camping to get the most from your outdoor dining experience. It can be used as a standalone unit or mounted onto the the Verycook kitchen trolley with detachable side shelves to hang barbecue tools and provide additional work space.
Easy to clean -simply pour a little water or place a handful of ice cubes directly onto the plancha while it is still hot and any food residue can be easily removed. What’s more, the fat collecting tray can be placed in the dishwasher. The coloured panels can also be removed to wash if necessary.
How to buy? First choose your colour, and then choose your cooking surface, there are three types:
• Rolled steel griddle (£319) – rolled steel is a metal known for its excellent heat transfer. The thickness of the cooking surface also provides a good thermal inertia over the entire surface of your grill.
• Enamelled steel griddle (£379) – the enamelling process forms a completely smooth surface, to which food does not stick and which transfers heat evenly over the entire cooking surface. Verycook enamelling is very durable.
• Stainless steel griddle (£429) – stainless steel is known for its strength and durability. In particular, it has excellent resistance to moisture and oxidation. Our high quality stainless steel ensures optimum heat diffusion over the entire cooking surface and guarantees super-easy maintenance.
