"Hopefully."

Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! It exceeded my expectations by far. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it.

It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! Exactly what it is advertised to be.

Breville BGR820RP Final Thoughts

"Take notes on what works."

If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. To buy this small but very very efficient electric grill. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine.

"It is very easy to use."

I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL! It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. And so so easy to remove and replace. The excess grease drains off AND it does not curl up like it does in a pan!

"Cleans up well."

I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. Baking and roasting also work very well. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner.

"I've included many pics."

From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Exactly what it is advertised to be. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. 2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! This one is greatly improved over my first one.

Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. Best choice ever this grill is absolutely amazing. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out.

"Yup, 5 minutes!"

Great indoor grill for one or two people. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! I am so glad to buy this amazing grill. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol! My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins.

"Yup, 5 minutes!"

You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill. You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time.

I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. She even suggested making counter space for it. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep.

"You will not be sorry!"

I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. She even suggested making counter space for it. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. I don't know what else to say except just BUY IT. I used to air fry and it was perfect.

"Omg delicious."

I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. The features of this machine make it well worth learning to get the most out of it. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe.
