Let\'s Raclette Grill Together!

Dinner is better when we eat together. ~unknown

When starting a family this became our motto. Like the old saying goes: couples that pray together, stay together. Same for the family unit: Families that eat together, stay strong together.

With all the new super high speed gadgets, demands of work and school families more than ever are finding it harder to dine together. Studies have shown that families who have any type of dining together whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner are better off than those families who do not. Even if you squeeze in a couple eating times a week you are better off than haven't dined at all.

According to Anne Fishel, Ph.D., families receive benefits such as increased spirit, brain activity and overall health when they come together for dinner. Recent studies have link having family dinners with decreased teen pregnancies, drug abuse and depression.

When can we find the time?

With all the demands on families I bet you're thinking when could my family possible sit down and have dinner together? Well, I use to be you. That is until we lived abroad and witnessed first hand the positive results that support these studies. In Europe the Europeans make time for family dining no matter what. In the end it is worth every moment to schedule out time to eat together. One country in particular managed to help our American family with their traditional dish used at most gatherings...the Raclette grill.

When we were introduced to the Raclette grill we knew our family dining experience at home was forever changed. Raclette grilling is when you use a tabletop electric grill to cook all your food (veggies, meats, cheeses, etc). Different than the American grill we are all use to, the Foreman grill; the Raclette involves everyone. The Raclette grill allows each member to cook their indiviual meal items as everyone socializes together.

So why is it a chore to have family meals together.

1). Planning the menu can be time consuming.

2). Most of the time there is only one person who prepares the meal.

3.) Cleaning up everything afterwards, who is going to do it?

Well with the Raclette grill we found the complete opposite.

1). We were all excited to plan the dinner and planning is very easy. Just place all items you want to cook around the table.

2). Everyone cooks and the kids absolutely love this...they feel involved. Actually my kids eat better because they are so involved.

3). And the clean up is half the time. So easy!

For my family the Raclette grill has allowed us to enjoy precious time together. We laugh, tell stories, and talk while at the same time enjoying a healthy dinner. We love our Swissmar Raclette Grill!!

When is the last time you dined as a family?
