Hot Stuff

The Diablo reinvents the way you make a toasted sandwich, snack, and even desserts. Unlike electric sandwich presses, the Diablo is designed to be used on your stove and never needs to be plugged in. It’s made of cast aluminum and titanium coating that's non-stick and scratch-resistant, so most recipes don’t need any butter or cooking spray. Great for anyone who likes a hot sandwich, Diablo is so easy to use. Simply line it with bread or a tortilla, add your desired fillings, and hold Diablo over the heat for a few minutes on each side using the heat-proof handles. Then pop your creation out and enjoy. After Diablo cools down, just toss it in the dishwasher. We were impressed by its versatility; this is more than just a toasted sandwich maker. You can create calzones, apple pies, cherry turnovers, and even omelets. Each Diablo comes with a few recipes to spark your imagination. This little devil is a fast, fun way to make a creative snack.

    @Dan - I was thinking more along the lines of one of those decorative standing fire pit/features you have and roast marshmallows on and the flame is very little - as long as the handle doesn't get into the fire, then we should be good. Under adult supervision of course.!

    Thanks for your reply.

    @kim Kim, The Diablo can certainly be used in a fire pit, though great care should be taken when handling. We do not recommend using over open fire pits that are large and not contained as we feel it puts you, and the handle, too near the flames and at risk. The stove top is the perfect controlled setting for The Diablo.

    @Barbara @kim @Jeanette The Diablo is designed to be used over a stove burner. The arm is not long enough to be used safely in a fireplace or with an open campfire. It can be used on gas, electric, ceramic and halogen stove tops but it's not suitable for use with an induction stove.

    @Paula You can scramble eggs and pour the mixture into the Diablo, add cheese, meat or veggies, and have yourself an easy omelet. The nonstick finish on the Diablo makes it easy to remove your creation once it is ready.

  • Steve

  • Dan

    3/19/2015 1:19 PM

    @Steve I have not tried with three, but I would think probably not, unless you want a very dense omelet.

    The Diablo is ideal for making snack or child size portions, so with the same three eggs you could also make two or three small omelets.

    Not really "re-invented" ... my dad had one of these way back in the 1950's. He was in the service during the war and an Eagle Scout. Not sure where he got it, but we had some great sandwiches; he made used this gizmo to make them and was sure to serve lunch with just one dish like the "real campers" do (or maybe, so there weren't so many dishes?).

The Diablo puts a new spin on this basic concept by making it easy and convenient to use in your kitchen. It is compact and lightweight, and the dishwasher-safe titanium nonstick coating makes it easy to empty and to clean.

    @diane The cooking surface of the Diablo is 4 inches in diameter. This is a bit smaller than most bread slices, but if you trim the edges of your bread the "crimp" that happens when cooking makes for a nice self-contained snack.

    Question...is this nonstick coating Teflon-free?

  • Dan
    Dan – Grommet Team
    3/20/2015 9:59 AM

    @Stephen The nonstick coating on the Diablo is not Teflon, but rather a titanium based formula. The titanium particles make the nonstick finish extremely durable and far less likely to release byproducts over time, which is the main concern with older nonstick surfaces.

  • Dan
    Dan – Grommet Team
    3/20/2015 9:38 AM

    @Katharine: Perhaps you could save these bread trimmings and use them to make homemade croutons or breadcrumbs?
