This works very well for me. It cooks nicely and is easy to clean. I have only a couple minor complaints. When you open the top (just like it is in the picture) grease can run down the top plate and land on the counter behind the unit. I leave a paper towel there when I cook. Also, I wish the selector in the middle would click. It feels squishy to me, and I think they can do better. Even so, it performs great. I'm very happy to cook with it anytime, and it's a breeze to clean. Absolutely would buy again.

Review:

Pros: The grill is much better than one of those grills that you close the lid on and squeezes the juices out. The grill is ideal for cooking boneless cuts of meats, sausages, and fish fillets. Grilling lines are easily achieved during searing. Results are the same as cooking on an outdoor gas grill.

Clean up is relatively easy. Putting tin foil is better than adding water to the drip pan; it's harder to clean up/dispose of the water mess. You must have a good non- scratching brush for cleaning the grill surface.

Cons: Only 1500 watts. Meats with bones do not cook evenly.

Bottom line: Great indoor grill for certain types of meat, poultry, and fish/seafood (shrimp). Would recommend purchasing.

This grill was great for a quick grilled dinner of chicken, fish, veggies or anything else! Good sized to fit on a kitchen counter and easily storable. VERY easy clean up (I ordered a cleaning brush which does the job by xox). Handles stay cool even after grilling for about 20 mins so it can be easily moved. Grill heats up pretty fast. I have had this product for about 2 weeks now and used it about 10 times! Also - can't beat the price. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to grill in their kitchen. (Picture advertised does make it seem like the grill can hold a whole lot - however it is a medium/smaller sized grill)

Review:

The grill came a few days ago. We first tried it with a very expensive Porterhouse steak, and it was beautiful. We like our meat rare and it was easy to monitor.

This morning we tried frozen waffles (I know, but I'm lazy) and bacon. Both were better than those cooked in my toaster oven and old skillet.

We were afraid it might set off a smoke alarm which is mounted on a 14 ft ceiling and a real pain to get it to stop. I have a gas range with a fan mounted in the hood. The grill sits solidly across the burners and the fan vents any smoke up the hood and outside. Of course I can't cook side dishes until I'm through grilling, but isn't that what microwaves are for?

We haven't had it very long, but I'm so pleased I might try a vegetable.

Review:

Tried the various Cuisinarts and Disasterarts and kept getting disappointed and frustrated by the lack of quality of those products.

Eventually I broke down and paid for the Breville BGR820XL - a word of advice here, stay away from the lowly Breville BSG520XL- and I can attest that this machine is worth every penny of its $300 price. By comparison the Cuisinflops should cost no more than $30.

Short and to the point since I don't like writing reviews but I felt that I owed this much to the Aussies. Well done mates.

Update. After using it for a couple of weeks I like it a lot and every time I use it I congratulate myself for buying it.

The price is forgotten but the quality remains and pleases me every time I touch it.

Review:

Love to grill veggies on this! My husband and I both think vegetables taste better grilled than steaming, stir fry, or saute-ing. The clean-up is a breeze! It also came with 2 drip trays so I throw one in the dishwasher and am still able to use the grill (the plates are easy to clean and aren't as greasy as the drip trays). The gray, stainless color matches my stainless kitchen quite nicely. Yes, it's more expensive than others, but the low-maintenance factor really won me over!

I had done research for days on the indoor grill series, it really was hard deciding what to get. This grill was perfect for us. Yeah it would have been nice to be able to afford the full sized Cuisinart because of the reversible plates, but for the price I paid I do not mind not having the removable plates. The directions are so simple. I love to cook and I enjoy making new creations, But I dont always have the time to heat up the outside grill. This particular grill has cooked everything through, and has a very easy clean up as long as you do it as directed. I have cooked beef, pork, chicken and fish so far on my unit, and everything tasted grilled but with out the smoked flavor. Perfect for my family of 4. I am completely satisfied and I am sure you would be too.

This is an excellent grill. We have always grilled a lot outside but with Texas lowest temp lately being 105 degrees it is not really very fun to grill in this weather. I bought this being a little leary but I absolutely love it and the best part it is so much easier to clean then the outdoor grill. I have cooked chicken, pork chops, tiliapia and veggies so far on this grill. It has been wonderful and you even get the grill marks. My family loves the taste the food and it is nutrition because the fat drips into the drip pan. I highly recommend this grill. I will use all year around.

I love this grill. I have used it to BBQ chicked as well as hamburgers. I have grilled zuchinni, sau

sausages, heck I use it almost every night. I live in an apartment and can't have an outdoor grill and this comes in very useful. It holds a whole chicken wit room left over for onions or peppers. It's easy to clean too.

Review:

I received the grill for my birthday from my daughter. I was skeptical, to say the least, as I am with most items you see on infomercials. From the first time I used this grill I was very impressed. I use it daily and it meets all its claims. The meats I grill come out juicy and perfectly done. I grill frozen chicken breasts and they come out perfect everytime. When you start to grill, let the chicken in for about twenty seconds and then season. The seasoning stays on the chicken and within a very few minutes the chicken is done to perfection. Great product and I will be buying more for Christmas presents this year.
