Sizzling Sausage Grill™ Debuts in Chicago at International Home + Housewares Show

New indoor sausage-specific grill makes grilling sausage to perfection, easy

America’s No. 1 sausage brand is making grilling easier for sausage connoisseurs everywhere, with the first – and only – indoor electric sausage grill designed exclusively for Johnsonville fresh sausages. The grill will be on display as Johnsonville exhibits for the first time at the International Home + Housewares Show, March 18-21 at Chicago’s McCormick Place (Booth #L1-2661).

Johnsonville knows the new Sizzling Sausage Grill appeals to grillmasters and grilling amateurs alike as it introduces the new electric appliance to the marketplace. Johnsonville Sausage Owner Shelly Stayer says she created the electric grill for those who aren’t particularly good at, don’t enjoy, or who are unable to grill outdoors.

“Grilling can be complicated for some consumers,” says Stayer. “It requires quite an effort, and depending on where you live and what season it is, grilling outdoors isn’t always an ideal option. With this grill, you plug it in and in 15 minutes or less, you have perfectly – and evenly grilled – fresh sausage. Another bonus of this type of grill is that there’s very little clean up afterwards.”

The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill (retail price is $99.99 plus s/h) is designed to cook any flavor of its fresh, uncooked Johnsonville bratwurst or Italian sausage. Uniquely designed grilling plates hug and hold brats and sausages—allowing users to grill a single Johnsonville sausage link or up to five links at a time. The grill’s compact design was created for use in homes, RVs and apartments, as it can be stored horizontally or vertically, taking up little counter and storage space. The special grilling plates maximize flavor, juiciness and taste without overcooking or drying out the links.

The Sizzling Sausage Grill features:

  • Removable upper and lower grill plates, which feature a non-stick coating and are dishwasher safe.

  • Patented temperature probe that alerts the user when the sausage is cooked to a safe temperatur, eliminating the guesswork about whether or not the sausage is cooked thoroughly.

  • Enclosed design that seals completely when locked so that the sausages are cooked and browned evenly, the juices and flavor don’t escape, and no drippings splatter outside the grill.

  • Drip tray that is dishwasher-safe and collects any drippings, making clean-up quick and simple.

  • Flexibility. Users can grill a single sausage or five at a time, making the grill convenient for single or multiple servings.

  • Reduced cook time by more than 30 percent when grilling sausage, compared to using an outdoor charcoal or gas grill.

The electric grill includes a two-year limited warranty and is available by visiting or calling 1-800-472-1875. The grill is sold by Shelly’s Grills, LLC.
