wow, never even heard of them. . .kind of reminds me of that silver looking paper wrap/shell(think hot pockets) that is supposed to make things crispy in a microwave, never really does the trick, but no harm in trying. . .

Also, how is that bag going to stop all the melting cheese from running of the bottom?

If I want a grilled cheese, it takes just as long to heat a pan over the burner as a toaster would take, so Imma stick with the tried and true.

Jarlsberg sent me a set and my experience was not good. The cheese on the middle stays cold, not gooey and melty as it should be. After a few tries (because I learn nothing from experience), the bags had holes in them and were scorched-looking all over.

Thanks for your review, rozz. I had my doubts, and now you've confirmed them!

After buying those 4 times you would be at the price of a cast iron pan. I'd go with the cast iron :D
