Grill Charms: Steak Collection - $19.95
Similar in concept to wine charms, these dime-sized solid stainless steel Grill Charms are intended to help distinguish spices and flavors, meat temperatures and other concerns to avoid health and allergy issues. Placed in your food before grilling, the serrated stems hold each charm securely in place while the item - meat or veggie - is moved and flipped about while cooking. When done, the grill master will avoid the troublesome guesswork - he or she will know exactly which item goes to which individual. And, the company offers a multitude of designs, each in sets of 6, for various purposes, including the Steak Collection indicating temperatures ("MR" for Medium Rare, for example), the Spicy Collection and others that are lifestyle-driven such as The Charmed Life Collection. Grill Charms are perfect for any cooking enthusiast, whether in your own home or another
