Still scratching your head about a good Father’s Day gift? Or perhaps you are looking for that perfect gift for the person who has everything. Or maybe you like the smell of cooking sausages just as much as the smell of bacon frying in a pan. Or maybe you, as a busy parent or individual, just want a super convenient way to cook sausages. Well, I have the product to solve those use cases. It’s the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill! (Oh, and at the end of this article is a promo code that will get you $20 off this grill!)
Normally on my site I talk about technology and how it works in the family environment. I write about how to fix strange technical issues with software, computers, hardware and other things. So, it was simply amazing to me to know the “super complicated” directions to using the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill. I’m kidding of course. Using this grill couldn’t be easier. And I have lots of photos below to prove it. But basically you put some Johnsonville sausages into the form-fitting grill, press the on button, and wait about 15 minutes. Then you eat them. Wow, talk about easy!
Personally, I love cooking. But there are plenty of people who don’t. There are those who can burn water or turn Ramen noodles into a cement-like paste. And there are those who do so much cooking, they really want something that they don’t have to think about while they are cooking something else. That’s why I think the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill is so convenient. Because of a built-in thermometer (which pierces the center sausage), sausages are cooked to the proper temperature and then the grill is auto-magically turned off. You basically set it and forget it.
I have used the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill a few times now after receiving it to write this sponsored review. And I must say, it’s not only easy to use, it is also really easy to clean. More about that later.
Using the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill
The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill essentially looks like a waffle maker or panini press. It has form-fitted, non-stick areas which hold up to 5 Johnsonville sausages.
If you look closely at the top portion, you will see a small spike sticking out. This is a temperature probe. It is important to cook sausages completely. This built-in probe eliminates the risk of eating potentially under-cooked sausages. If you are cooking only one sausage it must be in the first position.
For my testing, I chose two different types of Johnsonville sausages: Hot Italian Sausages and Beer ’n Bratwurst Brats.
For this simple recipe, I cut up some onion and red and green peppers which I sautéed in olive oil. I also grabbed some brat buns. The goal was to make a quick and simple sausage meal.
I sautéed the onions and peppers just seasoned with black ground pepper.
Since I was just cooking this for myself as a trial before cooking for the rest of the family, I put one of the Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausages into the slot labeled “#1”.
Then this is where the instructions get really “complicated.” I’m kidding of course. You simply lock down the handle, ensuring the temperature probe fully pierces the sausage in slot #1. Then you just press the “Start” button. The electric grill starts heating up and cooking the sausage.
After less than 15 minutes, the sausage is perfectly cooked and sizzling in the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill. They recommend you use plastic tongs to remove since metal tongs will scratch the non-stick surface.
Once the sausage was grilled, the onions and peppers sautéed, and the bun toasted, I just put on ketchup and mustard and served!
It was so easy to do that just about anyone can do it! After eating my meal, I decided to test it out with all of the slots full. This time I used the Johnsonville Beer ’n Bratwurst brats.
I must say, the family was pretty happy with the results. It was a meal that was ready from prep to eating in about 15 minutes.
Cleaning the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill
But what about clean-up? All too often, table-top grills are a bit complicated to clean. We have a panini press and it’s not super easy to do. The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill is made to be both easy to use and easy to clean. For starters, there is a removable grease and juice drip tray which can easily be taken out and then washed in the top rack of your dishwasher.
That is a lot easier than having to hand-wash it. And the top and bottom non-stick grill areas are just as easy to clean.
On both the top and bottom sections, there are quick-release buttons that when pressed, simply pop out each section. You can either hand-wash the grill section (using a non-abrasive towel or sponge) or even better, just put the two sections into your dishwasher.
That’s it for cleaning. It probably takes less time to clean than it does to make it dirty via grilling. What’s not to love about that!
The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill retails for $99.98 (plus $14.95 shipping and handling). As this is a sponsored article, I have been given a discount code for all HighTechDad readers. You can get the Grill for $79.98 (plus S/H) by ordering over the phone (1-800-610-4690) or by using the promo code “sizzle2” on the ordering website.
