The first episode of “Can You Grill It?” explores recent consumer issues related to Apple’s new iPad getting too hot to handle. To see if there is any truth to these overheating issues watch the video at to see the Can You Grill It team test the new iPad’s tendencies to overheat quickly.

“Your average product reviewers test new products and report on their findings – the products pros and cons, where the manufacturer exceeded expectations or delivered disappointments,” said Hall. “Consumer Reports, TechCrunch, Gizmodo and Huffington Post and other product reviewers have always been curious about how products stand up to extreme temperatures, but have failed to take the important quality control step of seeing if you can actually grill the product. We are literally grilling products over a charcoal fire and revealing to everyone on video exactly what happens to these products when they are grilled.”
