Stupid Me-i Got A Griller/cooker Gtxpress 101 Off Tv

Recommended Posts

Hi

Well--- it sure is smaller than what it looked like on TV. <_<

Maybe they use a larger size on tv as I don't know how you'd get a piece of chicken in this one :ph34r:

I did try it with some gluten-free bagels and a slice of cheese......woops :ph34r: ......but I did! It was ok but holes aren't big enough for a whole one even tho I cut it almost in half. (only used a bagel i'd cut in 1/2 and then cut again.)

Anyway, since I can't use the pre made cake mixes I'm sure hoping someone can have some ideas.

Was wondering if the gluten-free pantry pie mix would work?

Hi Judy

I think I have one of those in our fifth wheel. It has two triangle spaces where you put food in & close the lid for a few seconds? I'm not positive it is the same thing but t is an express griller. A short , stocky ,sweet talking lady advertizes it on TV. I forget her name. I've had this for a couple of years now. I use it for breakfast & for hot sandwiches when we are traveling... pancakes too added fruit in the center. I think I did stuffed french toast in it twice. I'm a gadget person as it seems everyone buys these things for me...

Hey, I'm heading to Philly in June If you would like to meet up I'd love to meet you.....

hi

I live about 1/2 outside philly but it would be fun.

I'm sure this is the same one. I used the gluten-free panty pancake mix so will like into that one.

It just seemed so much smaller.......like i said I don't know how she'd get that one chicken breast in mine. Do you know if there are 2 sizes. I went on line to look at the site and i sure got a big surprise as it was $109 for 2........buy one get one free................and on line said it cost like $69. i'll have to check it out tomorrow.

what mixes do you use? I think for breakfast and lunch it could be great just not sure of the dinner items in the books they sent.

thanks for the reply.

hope others can chime in.

Hi Judy

I think there is only one size unless they came out with a newer version. I don't think that they did. You can fit a boneless small half breast in it but again I mainly use it for breakfast & sandwiches. I have put a slcie of bread in it added some deli meat & cheese & a few veggies , put a top slice of bread & grilled ... It works with pizza sauce ,pepperoni, cheese too. Sometimes I just use bread for that too.... I have used the crescent roll reipe I posted a couple months ago in it also....

When you put scrambled eggs (omlet) in it the egg forms a light crust kinda like ahand held breakfast....Iput mushrooms, onions, peppers in the middle & a bit more egg on top & closed the lid!.

If you would like to meet send me a private e-mail & I'll give you my cell phone number, Someone told me about a great Italian place in Voohees,NJ not far from CC that has a wonderful looking gluten-free menu. We want to try it out. Place we are going to have a Philly Steak. I'm taking my own hoagie roll this time! Would love to meet you....

I'd love to have any recipes you have for the mixes.........I was using the crusts of the gluten-free pantry French bread for my pizza that I rarely have but would sure work in this

thanks again Judy

Hi Judy :)

So glad you had some success with this thing. I have looked longingly at this gadget on TV and considered buying one - just not sure how much I'd use it.

Let us know how you do!

Hugs -

p.s. do you sautee the onions - or pre-cook anything - before you put it into the thing? just wondering....

hi Susie Q

well I've had it 2 days and used it 3 times.

ditto Sande.......only good meats before but it says you can do sausage etc as it's preheating and then finsh with the rest of the items.

nope don't pre cook veg etc.

tip......but off line and DON'T CALL AND ORDER IN A FRENZY WHILE WATCHING TV.

DAMN, IT COST ME 106 DOLLARS BEFORE I COULD GET OUT OF THE DANG PHONE LOOP...........

BUYING ON LINE ..........SOME THING WAS ONLY 69 DOLLARS.

BUY ONE GET ONE FREE BUT THE UTENTILES THAT CAME WITH IT WERE A JOKE......BUT............I'm not laughing............. :ph34r: just junk..........in my opinion.

customer service to get bill adjusted was s ROYAL JOKE..............AGAIN............I'M NOT LAUGHING.

BUT DO LIKE THE PRODUCT. AM PLANNING ON USING IT ONCE A DAY TO PROVE TO MYSELF I WASN'T DERANGED WHEN I BOUGHT IT.

LOOKING INTO gluten-free PANCAKE MIX FOR TOMRROW..........WELL IT'S THE WEEKEND FOR HEAVENS SAKE AND TO STILL BE POURING RAIN FOR DAYS TO COME.

SEE..........MY LIFE IS STILL SO OOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO BORING.

LOVE YA JUDY

SURE WISH I'D SEEN THIS BEFORE ORDERING.

THOUGHT I COULD USE WHILE TRAVELING.

IT WAS TO COST $69.80 BUT ENDED UP $109.00 AND I'VE BEEN ON THE PHONE FOR DAYS AND I JUST CAN'T GET THE COST THEY QUOTED ON THE PHONE.

PLEASE READ IF YOUR THINKING OF BUYING THIS PRODUCT.

Hi Judy

I kept hearing that $69 bucks ringing in my head for days now so I went & looked up what I paid several years ago at an Altmeyer store & it was only $39.99. Man, they sure raised the price of that thing...

I get these gadgets all the time... I do use this & the magic bullet when we are traveling. I use the abkiever pan too...( I think I spelled that wrong!) But my most used plastic gadget is a $0.99 can drainer! It has several nitches in it for any size can.... I love it & use it most of all...

If the world wasn't full of fools it would be a very boring place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm easy prey .....................

Hey Judy

O don't get me wrong if they ripped you off I would call the attorney general's office & have them investigate the company..... My comment was addressing buying gadgets that one really does not need!!!!

I hate it when you call to place an order for something & they rattle on for another half hour telling you about add-ons or other useful products or you can get this for free but every month we will send you three more that cost 59.99 or some thing.I think this is where many people get confused & taken.... I now say when they start the extras if I can't get just what I asked for please cancel my order I don't care for anyhting else nor do I wish to listen to your rambling about it. That usually stops them fairly quickly.

Here in Pittsburgh our TV. station actually goes out & investigate's things like this....most often people get their money back.

I would be more than angry!!!

SO THANKS FOR THE LAUGH.......YES I'M LAUGHING NOW......... :lol: I'VE BEEN A FOOLISH SUCKER SO.......... IT'S IN THE PAST AND I LET IT GO.

BEEN LOOKING UP ALOT OF THINGS I CAN gluten-free IN IT AND I THINK I'LL REALLY USE IT. (IF IT HOLDS UP)

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU AND I ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO BOUGHT IT OUT OF THE 16,000 MEMBERS ON HERE............BUT MABYE THEY DON'T WANT TO ADMIT IT :lol:;)

Hey Judy

Nothing like an old fool!!!! me anyway!!!! As i'm thinking I put cornbread in that thing also......& a white cake we had with strawberries...... I honestly don't see anything wrong with it but I only use it when we travel. So for me mine has held up even being jarred around in a rear kitchen of a fifth wheel to Alaska& back. Plus the lower 48 trips....

You could make a corndog too. How about something like a calzone or stromboli in it?

Hand pies (fruit ) would work ..gluten-free pie dough fruit & top with more pie dough......
