The microwave grill: this little cooking accessory is an absolute must have if you've got a small kitchen with no space for an oven with a separate grill or for a bulky sandwich maker in your cupboards. Or maybe you love the idea of grilling your favourite food, but the time it takes puts you off? Or perhaps it's the mess of grilling – and the washing up it causes – that means you just don't bother?

How does it work? Simply put, it's two microwave-friendly grilling plates that can cook and crisp anything from sausages to sandwiches – it can even cook vegetables.

This microwave grill can replace a sandwich maker, electric grill or a griddle pan. How to use it?

Then, run the microwave for the designated cooking time. It's that easy to crisp and grill.
