Polaris PGP 3003 Optimal Temp review
The body is impressive. The design uses a combination of plastic, glass and metal. Gives the impression of a premium product.
At the same time, it is extremely practical. External surfaces are easy to maintain, do not scratch.
Front full length tempered glass panel with white LED backlit touch buttons. With the help of them, 6 automatic frying modes are selected: poultry, cutlet, sausages, sandwich, fish and steaks. Additionally, for steaks, you can choose one of 4 desired levels of roasting.
It is also possible to enable manual mode with temperature selection for the top and bottom panels separately. There is a display showing the heating temperature.
The lid of the Polaris PGP 3003 Optimal Temp is opened with a handle turned up. It does not heat up, the grip itself is comfortable.
Both panels of the press grill are corrugated. Double non-stick coating for long life.
Panels are easy to remove. It is enough to press the button on the front side and remove the panel from the grooves.
The heating elements are fixed on the inside of the panels. This ensures uniform heat distribution and direct contact.
On the right side there is a mechanical lock that allows you to adjust the degree of closing of the grill or fix the lid.
On the reverse side is a removable plastic tray for collecting fat. The grill stands on rubberized legs.
It is connected using a short cable with a wide cross-section and a plug with grounding.
Power Polaris PGP 3003 Optimal Temp is 2000 watts. The heating temperature can be determined automatically or adjusted manually from 150 to 240 °C. With the lid closed, only the overall temperature for the grill is set manually, with the 180-degree opening, you can set the temperatures for the top and bottom panels separately. With the lid open, the selection of automatic modes is blocked.
Before considering the cooking experience, we suggest touching on an important issue – cleaning the panels and the case. The execution of the panels here allows you to wash them both manually without the use of abrasive products, and in the dishwasher.
The Optimal Temp technology, which is supported by this model, allows you to choose between four degrees of steak doneness: rare, medium rare, medium, well-done. It works like this, the press grill is turned on, the desired degree of roasting is selected. After heating to the desired temperature, an audible signal is emitted.
Open the lid, place the steak and close the lid. When the desired degree of roasting is reached, an audible signal is emitted, signaling the need to remove it from the panels.
Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and let the meat rest. After that, salt and pepper to taste.
During operation, a ribeye steak was cooked several times. When choosing Medium Rare, the final result was always as expected.
Loved the grilled vegetables. Corn, peppers, tomatoes, onions, eggplants were prepared without oil. Later, you can use them as a side dish or make a delicious hot salad.
Kupats were prepared with Polaris PGP 3003 Optimal Temp. There is a separate mode for them. Everything is as simple as with a steak.
We chose the mode, turned it on, waited for the sound signal and distributed the kupats along the bottom panel. We closed the lid and within 3-4 minutes they were ready, retaining their juiciness.
Liked the burgers. It was divided into two stages. The first one was meatballs.
On the second, a slice of buns was dried. Next, we collect the ingredients to taste. Well suited for children, unlike those offered in fast food chains, there is precise quality control of the ingredients.
They cooked on it both whole fish, for example, dorado, and salmon steaks. All the same, it is enough to select the automatic mode, you do not need to lubricate with oil and turn over during the cooking process.
Also used for breakfast. The necessary ingredients were collected on toasts, covered with a second toast, and using a separate automatic program, hot sandwiches were obtained for a cup of aromatic coffee prepared in Polaris PCM 1542E Adore Crema.
Polaris PGP 3003 Optimal Temp will allow you to cook various dishes easily and tasty, choose four degrees of steak roasting, use automatic programs for poultry, fish, sandwiches, meatballs and sausages. All this with minimal attention, even without culinary experience and the need for oil. Stylish and practical external design, touch and intuitive control, fast heating and tasty results.
