Raclette: Buying Guide

Traditional raclette grills are extremely popular in France and Switzerland where having a raclette party is regular occurrence. If you've never had the joy of a using a raclette party grill, then this article will help you choose your first machine!

What is a Raclette Machine?
Technically, raclette is a kind of French or Swiss cheese but this name is often given to the machine used to cook the cheese and other foods. Raclettes are table top grills which have a top cooking surface and several small cooking pans which sit under the grill.

Vegetables and meats are cooked on top of the grill so a good raclette set will have teflon surfaces. The very best machines will have a stone grilling surface. Though this isn't as easy to clean, it does retain heat better.

What kind of things can I cook on a raclette?
Generally the grill pans are used to melt cheese which can be poured over cooked meat and vegetables. It is even possible to cook more exotic ingredients. By adding a little chopped garlic, red chilli and king prawns to a grill pan you will soon make yourself a quick spicy Asian treat. Raclette cooking is all about having lots ingredients and having people make their own raclette recipe. In this way, it is similar to fondue.

What should I look for in a new raclette maker?

Grill pans
First, buy a machine that has enough grill pans for you and your friends. Swissmar raclette grills can accommodate up to eight people. Teflon surfaces are a must for easy cleaning. Many machines come with free recipe books to inspire residents of countries where raclettes are not ingrained into the national culture.

Power
If you intend to cook larger items like steaks on your grill, then you will need a high power unit. It is possible to buy raclettes in the region of 1.2KW, however an 800W unit should be enough for most people. If you are keen on cooking meats, then look for raclettes that have a gridded surface which will allow fat to drain away from the meat, making for a healthier meal.

Aside from the quality of cooking surface, the best raclettes are circular in design so that many people can sit around them. Cuisinart raclettes are well thought of units and are available in both circular and linear designs.
