"SUPER easy to clean."
I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. I literally cook here everyday, it is insane. I don't know I might have had temp to high. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare.

"Does a good job."
I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. We have tried other and I have to say I didn't think it would be this good! I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need.

"I use it daily!"
This thing is better than advertised. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean.

"This thing Cooks so well."
I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL! Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. She even suggested making counter space for it. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic!

"I'm glad I bought it."
I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. We also already tried fries and grilling burger. Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version.

"They are sparkling clean."
It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare.

"I've included many pics."
One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. I don't know I might have had temp to high. I would have given 5 stars for this except for that. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol!

"My concern was smoke."
It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself! There is also a guide included to help with temps and cook times! It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. I highly recommend this larger George Foreman unit with the removable plates. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner.

"And Char flavor!"
My only complaint is the tilted launching system. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. I don't know I might have had temp to high. Best choice ever this grill is absolutely amazing. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere.

Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together.

"Best choice ever!"
It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. It exceeded my expectations by far. Don't blame the machine if you go by time only. Just made a steak and it was to die for.

"It is perfect."
All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! I would have given 5 stars for this except for that. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged.

Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. If any item does not work correctly, RETURN IT before 30 days. Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it.
