iGrill introduced

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 25 Apr 2007 12:04 User comments (25)

iGrill introduced George Foreman has introduced a new grill for his line, and this latest one is iPod-ready.
The aptly named iGrill is a stand-up grill with a 10-watt speaker set that can play music while the main grill cooks your food. There is a USB port so the iGrill will also work with most digital audio devices besides the iPod.

The grill is already available and holds a $150 retail price.

I find this really funny and silly at the same time. What happens if you want your food to be medium and you forget and bop with the music and you over cook your meat :P

i'd be more worried about cooking my ipod

red hot chilly peppers,korn,smashin pumpins and of course food fighters.

Apple will sue. Doesn't apple have a copyright on the letter.... ummmm... better not say it... on that letter between h and k?

And, only one speaker? I'd better get the $300 matched-pair for stereo!

Oops! I made a typo... That letter between h and j? Oops... Now "me" is in trouble... "Me" just used that copyrighted letter to refer to myself! ...Maybe the upper case version is still copyright free????

Coming soon:
iShower, soap and shampoo shower dispenser
iWipes, all your music player needs in a toilet paper holder

My luck someone will market them and I will lose out on the idea rights.

I'm amazed that this actually came true. It was one of my favourite jokes about the iPod, the iGrill. And now George Foreman has delivered. Hallelujah!

Gee...is it waterproof ?

I mean...lets face it...bbq's are usually done outside.

First off, it might actually not be a terrible idea if they made some kind of music playing outdoor barbecue device that played music. It'd actually be kind of cool for when you have friends over for a barbecue. But then again, that's not particularly Mr. Foreman's forte, now is it?

Seriously, at the point we're getting to, Mr. Foreman will have to release a new iGrill that is completely water resistant, so that you can grill up a delicious lean steak dinner while you sing to your iPod in the shower, lol. It's getting kind of sad. I understand the desire to make those things more useful; and I understand the desire to combine appliances, etc; but this is utterly stupid. If you own an iPod and have access to a george foreman grill, I would sincerely hope you have access to a stereo, a tv, or at least a computer. Who is going to be dependant on their iGrill for their music? ACK!

10 watts?!? a $20 pair of computer speakers will output more than that

2326.4.2007 13:22

looks pretty trendy and compact to me, especially if you live in an apartment and grill on your balcony lol. then again, maintenance will be a bitch.

10 watts in a car with the windows rolled up is more intense than a jet engine at 50m. - Highschool physics. (I worked this out a year ago)

So you don't need power unless you have stage or something. You just need fidelity. El-cheapo speakers propably won't have that, but who is to that George Foreman speakers with have that either?

This has got to be a joke.
