Quesadillas are the perfect quick, easy dinner for a busy family. They're easy to throw together in a hurry, and it's easy to make changes to each individual quesadilla depending on the food preferences of the members of your family. There's just one problem: making quesadillas can be a bit of a messy process.
If you've ever wished that you could cook your quesadillas on the grill and flip them in one smooth movement, the Quesadilla Grill Basket is the perfect product for you. With a locking ring that keeps all the ingredients tucked neatly in the quesadilla, the Quesadilla Grill Basket is designed to make creating a quesadilla as easy and mess-free as possible. You simply load the ingredients, lock it in place, and put the basket over the heat source. When the time comes to flip, it's as easy as turning the basket over. No more scraping cheese off of the pan. No more desperately trying to juggle a quesadilla that seems to have left more of its contents in the pan than in the tortilla.
In addition, the Quesadilla Grill Basket opens up more options for easily cooking your quesadilla. Want to make it over the grill? Go ahead. For the first time, you won't have to spend the next hour scraping cheese off of the grill once you're done. It's the perfect product for all of your quesadilla making needs.
Your Burning Questions
Q: How hot does the Quesadilla Grill Basket get when it's in use? I don't want to burn myself.
A: The Quesadilla Grill Basket does get very hot when you're cooking. The basket itself is made out of metal, which conducts heat. You'll want to be careful while you're handling it. When removing one quesadilla from the basket and putting in the next one, you'll probably want to use an oven mitt or some other method of protecting your hands--or, alternatively, allow it to cool before you unload it. If you're making quesadillas for more than one, allowing it to cool probably isn't practical, so the oven mitt is likely the way to go.
Q: Can I use it for anything besides quesadilla making? It seems silly to have an item in my kitchen that can only cook one thing.
A: As a grill basket or rack, the Quesadilla Grill Basket is designed to be the perfect size for a tortilla and toppings. It will also hold anything else you care to put in it. Reviewers have attempted shrimp, burgers, and sweet potatoes successfully.
Q: What about using it to cook over a fire? Is the Quesadilla Grill Basket appropriate for campfire cooking?
A: The handles on the Quesadilla Grill Basket are a little bit short for cooking over an open flame. You'll probably have to get a little bit too close to the fire if you attempt to use it that way. In general, it's recommended that the Quesadilla Grill Basket be used over a grill or stove.
Q: How big is it? Am I going to be making my quesadillas with small tortillas from now on?
A: The Quesadilla Grill Basket is big enough to hold large flour tortillas, so you won't be restricted to small tortillas. It does a great job of compressing even a large number of toppings, so you can stuff plenty of stuff in there.
