Healthy Hint
Make sure your burgers are lean by purchasing ground turkey breast. Products labeled simply "ground turkey" may also contain dark meat and skin, adding to the fat content of your burgers.
Kitchen Tip
Your contact grill cooks at high temperatures and gets very hot; use caution when working near the unit. We recommend using pot holders or mitts when opening or closing the cover. Also, be sure to cook the grill slightly before cleaning.
