NEW YORK, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Deep Frying Portable Grill, a portable cooking device that makes crisp chicken wings or French fries as well as traditional grilled food.

The Deep Frying Portable Grill has a deep fryer built into the center of its cooking surface and holds up to 16 oz. of cooking oil, allowing cooks to fry up to four servings of shrimp or onion rings while hot dogs or hamburgers cook on the rest of the grill.

The grill's 452" sq. cooking surface accommodates up to eight hamburgers and includes a grate for high-temperature searing, a griddle ideal for cooking bacon or vegetables, and a warming plate that toasts buns.

"The Deep Frying Portable Grill allows cooks to make fried foods while tailgating or during a beach barbecue without requiring a separate, bulky deep fryer," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The Deep Frying Portable Grill is powered by widely available 1-lb. propane canisters and emits up to 24,000 BTUs, generating temperatures in excess of 600 degrees F and producing restaurant-worthy charring.

The Deep Frying Portable Grill comes with an oil thermometer that displays the temperature of the deep fryer, a removable bamboo cutting board for food preparation, and it has a push-button electronic igniter that eliminates the need for matches or lighters. The entire unit folds to only 10" wide and stores in the included bag for ease of portability.

The Deep Frying Portable Grill is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $249.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/81615 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com.
