Why people fall in love with raclette grills

Raclette grills aren’t particularly popular in the United States compared to some areas of Europe. Besides expats and people who come from Europe, there are few individuals who are aware of the tradition coming from Switzerland that involves using this type of appliance. In a nutshell, this kind of product is a tabletop grill that can be utilized for preparing a variety of dishes, one of which is cheese.

The appliance can be composed of several layers that one can utilize to cook potatoes, various meats, vegetables, and anything else. While it might not be particularly functional or eye-catching, the charm about a raclette grill is that it can be placed in the middle of the table so as to allow everyone to cook their own food. What this means is that the chef isn’t forced to spend hours on end in the kitchen or spare some minutes to serve anyone.

This way, using a raclette grill can turn into a real family event, where people talk, have a sip of wine and indulge in the lovely food they’ve cooked for themselves. Therefore, people fall in love with this type of appliance because it enables them to spend quality time with their dear ones.

When it comes to the foods that you can use with a raclette grill, the sky’s the limit as your imagination will determine what you’ll put in your mouth. Some of the popular cheeses used with such an appliance are camembert, gouda, mozzarella, and even hard varieties like pecorino and parmesan. Monterrey Jack is also popular, and there’s even an alternative specifically intended for raclette grills.

As for veggies, you can grill anything from zucchini to asparagus and bell peppers. It goes without saying that you can even utilize potatoes, it’s just that they require a bit of preparation beforehand so as to make them somewhat tender and allow them to cook through thoroughly on the grill. The slices of meat that you’ll utilize have to be more or less thin so that the heat can penetrate them easier. Fish is cooked to perfection because it is more tender by comparison with meats like pork, chicken, or veal.

Choosing a raclette grill comes naturally to those who love spending hours on end with their friends and family. Don’t forget to accompany your dishes with seasoning, sauces, and dips.
