MIDDLETON, Wis.-The George Foreman brand launched its Five Serving Grill & Broil with Five Nonstick Plates on a one-day-only shopping event on QVC yesterday.

The new grill was presented as a QVC “Today’s Special Value,” which spotlights one product and offers it from midnight to 11:59 p.m. in one day, for $89.96 while supplies lasted.

Along with the grilling function and the proprietary fat-draining design of other George Foreman Grills, the product is designed with two broiling settings, including a low-broil feature for creating top melts and a high-broil option for dishes such as fish, steaks and desserts. It also has variable temperature controls which provide grilling flexibility.

“We’re confident that viewers who try out the George Foreman Grill & Broil will be impressed with its versatile features that make at-home cooking so easy and convenient,” said Kevin Blossom, vice president of sales and marketing for Spectrum Brands, manufacturer of the George Foreman products.

QVC said it could not provide sales figures for the Grill & Broil from yesterday’s event.
