Pampered Chef: Grill press ... ON THE GRILL???

    My neighbor approached me recently about buying a grill press. Only thing is, I have a sneaking suspicion he wants to use it on the grill.

    Silly question, I know, but is he setting himself up for warranty problems if he presses his burgers over an open flame?

    It's enamel coated cast iron, I wonder if there's a way to find out for sure if that gets harmed when used over an open flame? Maybe e-mail the test kitchens? Really, it's being used on the meat, but is surrounded in the high heat of the grill, especially if they close the lid. But maybe that's just fine? I think the only time flames would touch it would be if as they press it initially on the meat, the grease drips and triggers the flames to flare up.

    the PIG says NOT to use it on the grill because of the enamel coating... so I would say that it would definitely void the warranty if he used it on the grill
