I love to grill, and I love to eat grilled food even more! Unfortunately, living in Canada can make it a little difficult to grill in the winter, at least if you don’t want to climb through snow and freeze while doing it. So I was pretty excited to try out the T-Fal Emeril XL Grill.

This powerful 1700 watt grill helps deliver the best tasting grilled foods thanks to its removable non-stick, die-cast aluminum grill plates and two independent temperature controls.


  • Extra large cooking surface, two independent cooking surfaces and temperature surfaces.
  • 230 square inches of grilling space
  • Temperature settings of 176°F to 464°F.
  • Nonstick, die cast aluminum plates ensure optimal heat diffusion.
  • Sloped surface for better draining.
  • Removable and dishwasher safe plates.
  • Splatter guard.
  • 1700 watts.

The grill is a great size for a big family like mine. We had some pork tenderloin that I wanted to make, so I decided to test out the grill with that.

As you can see, I may have overdone it with the barbecue sauce and made quite a mess of the grill, but the tenderloin was delicious and the grill cleaned up so easily thanks to T-Fal’s famous no-stick coating. I washed them in the sink that time, but since then I have tried putting them in the dishwasher and they came out clean and just like new. I also love the splash guard that contained the mess to the grill.

Since then, I have tried grilling zucchini and chicken and both turned out beautifully. I know this appliance will be well used throughout the winter, and maybe even in the summer when I would rather not go outside.

T-Fal and Emeril have teamed up on several great appliances, including a pie and cake maker, a deep fryer and a slow cooker. You can see them all at www.emerilstore.com.
