Solaire Grill Owners Respond to Consumer
Reports Assertions - Page 2
(more at Page 1)
Reports June 2008 issue, states
our tests repeatedly found that
more Btu dont guarantee faster heating or better cooking. Many grill makers
have turned to infrared technology to create buzz. But infrared is just another
way of saying indirect heat
Consumer Reports then
goes on to say None of these infrared
technologies was better than the others, nor did infrared outperform regular
am writing to you in reference to the absolutely false statements made by
Consumer Reports. The Grill that I have is Model
I have been a grill chef for 20 yrs & have never cooked on an infrared burner
before the purchase of the Solaire.The grill heats up quicker, the sear is much
faster & that produces a better flavor due to the Maillard principle, which for
the inexperienced people at Consumer Reports, is the browning of the meat
proteins. "It's why we Grill !!!!" They even show more of their stupidity in
their statement "But infrared is just another way of saying indirect
heat" This statement is completely untrue & shows more of their lack of cooking
knowledge. Indirect heat is when you do not have the food product directly over
the heat, ie: shutting off a burner or two & placing the food product over the
burners that are turned off & allowing a very slow cooking or smoking process to
take place. The infrared burners are not intended to be used as an indirect
heating process. In the end you'll win the bet hands down due to the superior
product of Solaire Grills. Here's my bet !!! Consumer Reports won't even take
your bet because they know they are DEAD WRONG & would look foolish at the
contest. Mr. Rasmussen keep up the great work of producing unsurpassed quality.
The professionals in the culinary field appreciate your dedication.

Our new Solaire Grill is fantastic!!! It
took us a couple of times getting use to the cooking time, but like any new
range or oven, consumers need to get to know their appliances. Last night we
had the best lamb chops that we have ever had
marinated them in bottled Coke and
Bar-B-Que sauce with fresh herbs from my patio garden. They were done just
perfect in less than five minutes.
The grill is the best we have had in over
50 years of marriage and the only thing that my husband cooks is on the grill!
The technology is from the future and we have given two more grills to our
children. We are a three Solaire Grill Family! Thank you Rasmussen Company.
Consumer Reports hires writers who do not
know what they are writing about and no one can challenge them. Too bad one
publication is considered an expert on everything.

Every time we
would visit the store and they were doing a demonstration, my husband would
drool. So I purchased this Solaire Infrared Grill (AGBQ-27GIR) as a gift for
our 40th wedding anniversary. Thank you for making me the best
wife! The gift was a big hit!
