Lékué XL Microwave Grill

Product number: 26543

Marinated chicken breasts with authentic griddle lines; juicy burgers and char-grilled vegetables; crisp golden toasties piled high with filling – all cooked to perfection in your microwave. Yes, your microwave – with the help of Lékué’s Microwave Grill XL, you can easily make fresh, tasty food with not a pinged ready meal in sight.

You asked, we listened

We know how much you love the original Lékué Microwave Grill – in fact, we struggled to keep it on our shelves. But then you started asking us for a bigger version. So, happy to oblige, we went to Lékué to see what they could do… and here it is. The XL. This larger grill has all the benefits of its smaller counterpart, but with a larger grilling area so you can cook twice as much at once – or make one huge toasted sandwich. Good, right?

Perfect results

We’ve all done it – microwaved a greasy, salty ready meal because it was quick and convenient, and then been disappointed with the results. But thanks to the innovative design of Lékué’s extra-large microwaveable grill – the two metal plates of the grill transfer heat to your freshly prepared food, not only cooking it, but browning it to perfection with authentic griddle lines – you can make food that looks and tastes as good as you would get from a counter-top grill, and quickly too.

What can you cook?

Well, quite a lot, actually. Sausages, steaks, veg, fish – you could even cook strips of chicken or beef with peppers for delicious and super-simple fajitas. And unlike some microwave cookers that just heat or steam, which can leave food looking pale and a bit unappetising (nobody likes a pale sausage), the XL actually browns your food properly. The adjustable silicone loops at the side of the grill allow it to adapt to different sizes of food, so whether you’re grilling fat juicy burgers or a few spears of asparagus, it’ll do the job perfectly. And let’s not forget toasties…

Toasted sarnies – made in a microwave?

Who doesn’t love a toasted sandwich? Properly toasted, crunchy golden bread; ham, gooey cheese and a dollop of tangy chutney… irresistible. Well, as good as electric toasted sandwich makers are, they take up loads of worktop space, can be slow to heat up, are fiddly to clean and – worst of all – can sometimes leak out all that yummy filling. Plus, they’re a bit of a one-trick pony – unlike the XL, which cooks a huge range of food and is also easy to store thanks to its compact design.

How do I use it?

Before you start cooking you’ll need to preheat the grill. Put it your microwave for three minutes (you can use this time to prep your food), then carefully place your food on the bottom grill, rest the upper grill panel on top and secure it in place with the stretchy silicone loops. Put the grill back into your microwave and cook your food according to the timings in the included booklet and you’re ready to tuck in. Lékué have designed the removable silicone handles with raised ‘stay-cooler’ ribs to aid heat insulation, but please do use oven gloves to lift the grill as it does get very hot.

Easy to clean

Made from non-stick-coated aluminium and silicone, it’s really easy to clean once you’ve enjoyed your food. You can dunk it in a sink of soapy water, or even put it in the top rack of a dishwasher, and the chunky silicone handles are really easy to pop on and off, too. Please note: we recommend the grill is cleaned and dried thoroughly after each use.

Perfectly timed

Wondering how soon you can eat? Here’s a quick guide to timings after preheating the grill for 3 minutes, based on a 900W microwave – timings will vary depending on your microwave.

  • Beef burger – 10 minutes.
  • Sausages - 12 minutes.
  • Veggie burger – 10 minutes.
  • Salmon fillet – 10 minutes.
  • Chicken breast – 10 minutes.
  • Asparagus – 10 minutes.

Included booklet contains approximate timings and 8 recipes to get you started.

Please note: Lékué recommend that this grill should only be used in microwaves with a turntable. Max power 900W.

Microwave safe; heat-resistant up to 240°C.

Materials: 100% platinum silicone and non-stick coated steel – heating element is ferrite silicone.

Non-stick coating is BPA and PFOA free.

Available exclusively at Lakeland.

"Very disappointing"

star star star star_border star_border

Disappointing. OK cheese sandwiches, preheat 3 mins, cook for 4 mins. Adding pickle, sliced tomatoes makes bread soggy. Second sandwich, pre-heat again, then cook, so it’s 8 mins after the first one. Preheat again for grilling veg, then 5 mins to grill, so can’t have veg together with sandwich. Too small to make 2 sandwiches so suitable for 1 person, not a family. Silicon bands fiddly to use, difficult for arthritic hands and can ping off whilst putting on. Spare set would be useful. Recipe book useless if you’re vegetarian. Easy to wash in hot soapy water. Expensive.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear this hasn't met your expectations. You're covered by our three year guarantee should you wish to return it.

"Wonderful addition"

star star star star star_border

Recently purchased, thought I'd try it based on the reviews as I'm tired of the mess frying chicken leaves on the hob and the time I have to have the oven on. Love it! Did a chicken breast, juicy and perfectly cooked, cheese and onion toasty, so quick and also a Brie & tomato panini. Can't wait to try more things, very easy to clean and small enough to store away. One little criticism, the straps at the side I find difficult to get the smaller hole on the hook and don't want to tilt it on it's side but I'm sure it will be easier the more I use it. It would've had 5* but for the straps

"Fabulous"

star star star star star

Got given this for Christmas. Love it, have tried toasted sandwich, lovely and crispy. Tried breaded chicken with timing from recipients book but found that too hard and dry but I think that if you use this you need to experiment with timings for your microwave. Chicken breasts lovely and juicy. I don’t think you can just blindly follow the recipient book. Just experiment and you won’t be disappointed. So easy to clean. Small enough to store in a cupboard. Love it

"The size is right"

star star star star star_border

This grill, although it's really a griddle, is big enough for real sandwiches. Forget about the recipe book and experiment as the book is sadly lacking in detail or ideas. A very useful product but only affordable and of reasonable value if purchased with a Lakeland money off voucher.

"Very disappointing"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Not a grill,only a microwave plate. Machine has to be heated for 3 minutes before use. Then have to unhook rubber grips from very hot plates to place food inside. Then rehook and cook. Then unhook again to get food out. Very fiddly and risk of burning fingers. Makes one toastie at a time. Have to reheat for more. End result, very flat toastie, cheese squashed and absorbed smell of rubber from plate, tomatoes stewed, bread over crisp at the edges, soggy inside . Avoid at all costs. Toaster bags are 500% more efficient. Unfortunately out of time to return for refund. Does not deserve any stars.

We're sorry the results weren't as expected and that you found it difficult to use. Preheating the grill helps the toastie crisp up and it's best not to use any butter or oil on the outside. We also recommend using oven gloves when handling the hot grill.
