There are regular questions about customising grub, and for those who won't/can't edit the relevant configuration files then grub-customizer is an option. The problem is that it is available from an Ubuntu ppa, and although I have successfully used this method in the past, it isn't recommended because Ubuntu is NOT Debian and there are likely to be dependency problems.
There are a couple of other ways of installing it though, using a deb package downloaded from the ppa:
Go to the ppa packages page at /grub-customizer/+packages, and choose the release and build version you want. Either
1) Download and save the deb, then install with
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/grub-customizer_xxxxx.deb
2) Use the "Open with gdebi-gtk" option, and install it that way
If you get messages about missing dependencies, or broken packages, then choose an older version from the packages available on the ppa.
As of 27th April 2014, I have found that the following versions install and run with no problems:
Waldorf/Wheezy can use grub-customizer_3.0.4
Jessie/Testing can use grub-customizer_4.0.6
Thanks for this gimpbanger, I too can't be arsed to do this the command line way although have not had the need to edit grub since I switched to #!
