Do you want to give your dishes a Spanish touch? It’s possible! Get to know the BBQ plancha, an ultra-handy grill that allows you to to conjure up a variety of dishes: from pasta vongole to a juicy piece of meat or how about pancakes? It's all possible! Grilling on the BBQ plancha is a baking method that has blown over from southern Spain and it's becoming more and more popular!
When you go to a Spanish restaurant, you will certainly find a dish à la plancha on the menu. Literally translated: a dish baked on the plate. The BBQ plancha consists of a wide, flat baking plate made of aluminium, chrome, steel or cast iron. This baking tray is heated by powerful electrical resistance or gas burners. The BBQ plancha can take on very high temperatures in order to sear ingredients. However, thanks to the adjustable temperature buttons, you can also choose to bake your ingredients at lower temperatures. The actual baking time depends on several factors such as the temperature outside, wind and of course your own taste. Experience teaches you to estimate this time.
The advantages of a BBQ plancha are endless! First of all, it heats up in 1-2-3. Turn the control buttons and you are ready to go! Next, a very small amount of fat is enough to bake your preparation, a plus for those who like to keep it healthy. The hotter the plate of your BBQ plancha gets, the smaller the chance that the food will stick to it. Also, the high temperatures maintain the pure taste of your ingredients. Take your preparations from your BBQ plancha using a plancha spatula, which is extra mild for the delicate baking tray. In general, the BBQ plancha is available as a table version, but it's also often sold with a matching base, perfect for those who have a small city garden or only a balcony!
Cleaning a BBQ plancha is a piece of cake! Aggressive cleaning products are absolutely out of the question. Simply pour some water on the hot baking tray of the BBQ plancha and the dirt will come along easily. Then use a soft sponge or cloth to wipe off the dirt when the BBQ plancha has cooled down. Dry the plate thoroughly before storing your appliance.
