Cuisinart GR-150P1 First Impressions

"This thing Cooks so well."

This is now my favorite thing in the kitchen. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! I think I have found what I was looking for! Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate.

Cuisinart GR-150P1 Final Thoughts

"This thing Cooks so well."

There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. There is also a guide included to help with temps and cook times! The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself! The excess grease drains off AND it does not curl up like it does in a pan! The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak.

Cuisinart First Impressions

"Take notes on what works."

It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. Exactly what it is advertised to be. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in.

Cuisinart Final Thoughts

"Hopefully."

2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. To buy this small but very very efficient electric grill. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink.

"It's fantastic."

Then turns green when it is ready to cook. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! I can not believe how much we like this grill.

"Awesome appliance!"

So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! I have used this item for a few days and I want to say, I am even more pleased! I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. She even suggested making counter space for it. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. And so so easy to remove and replace.

Cuisinart CGR-770 First Impressions

"Heats up FAST."

My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. Great indoor grill for one or two people.

Cuisinart CGR-770 Final Thoughts

"My concern was smoke."

The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. I've always wanted a way to make steak inside without smoke and grease everywhere. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air.

"I'm serious though."

I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. I used to air fry and it was perfect.

"My concern was smoke."

My only complaint is the tilted launching system. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. I highly recommend this larger George Foreman unit with the removable plates. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. I used to air fry and it was perfect. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink.

"Pretty much perfect."

Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. I have used this item for a few days and I want to say, I am even more pleased! That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic.

I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL! There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid.

I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL! Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method. Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here.

"Wiped excess off."

I've always wanted a way to make steak inside without smoke and grease everywhere. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. I don't know what else to say except just BUY IT. This counter top grill is wonderful! Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill.
