Grill Charms are still a relatively new grilling accessory that is gaining more popularity each year. Grill Charms were created by Leslie Haywood out of Charleston, SC and are round, stainless steel charms that distinguishes your food on your grill as you cook. The stem of the charm makes it so you can put them on your food before putting it on the grill and it won’t fall out as you flip and turn your food.
Grill Charms History
A lot of people are still unfamiliar with what a Grill Charm is, but it has been around for several years. I happened to first hear about them about 3 years ago from a show on CNBC, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. He had a segment on the show, One Minute to Millions, where he asked two people in business about the selected persons business idea and they critiqued it if it was a good idea or not. The one gentlemen when all said and done voted it was not a big idea, the lady voted it was a big idea and Donny Deutsch voted it was a big idea. I would have to say the person that voted it was not got it wrong. If you want to see that segment it is posted here at youtube. Grill Charms – One Minute to Millions.
At that time I thought this product was a great idea, but I did forget about it until about a year later when I saw the inventor of these on tv again. This time she was on the ABC show, Shark Tank. If your not familiar with this show then head over to ABC to read about it. Shark Tank is a great show and it just started its second season last Friday, so check it out. Grill Charms left Shark Tank with a $50,000 investment from a successful internet and technology mogul, Robert Herjavec.
I finally got my hands on a set of these Grill Charms after hearing about it over 3 years ago. Each pack comes with 6 charms and come in 4 different collections: Steak Collection, Spicy Collection, Charmed Life Collection, and the Pink Collection(10% of the proceeds go to help find a cure for breast cancer). With everyone having their own preference on how they want their meat cooked on the grill these charms make life simple. You will have no doubt with these which steak is medium or medium well, which chicken has hot spices and not, which item is for someone with a food allergy. You can see that there are a lot of possibilities for these.
Grill Charms will give you the ability to cook for multiple people with different spices/marinades on each one and never have to worry about getting the wrong one. Bottom line: If you grill then you need a set of these.
