Don't blame the machine if you go by time only. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. This counter top grill is wonderful! A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! I've always wanted a way to make steak inside without smoke and grease everywhere. The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it.

De'Longhi BG24 Final Thoughts

"Very little if at all."

This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! If done correctly the plates will snap in securely. The excess grease drains off AND it does not curl up like it does in a pan! If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon.

"This thing is."

Exactly what it is advertised to be. If you don't, you have nothing to complain about. I think I have found what I was looking for! Don't blame the machine if you go by time only. Great indoor grill for one or two people. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. I literally cook here everyday, it is insane.

"And here we are."

Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time.

"Heats up FAST."

If you don't, you have nothing to complain about. It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. This one is greatly improved over my first one. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"A Ninja Innovation."

Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. This counter top grill is wonderful! In sum, this Foodi rocks the house.

De'Longhi DLSK152 Final Thoughts

"Broiled meat is horrible."

There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner.

Amazon Renewed First Impressions

"I STILL LOVE IT!"

I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. It is perfect for a couple, or even a family of three or four.

"This grill works fine."

I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. Baking and roasting also work very well. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. She even suggested making counter space for it. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. There is also a guide included to help with temps and cook times!

"Wonderful!"

I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine. The light on top is red when you plug it in. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol! I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived.

Waring WFG275 First Impressions

"This thing Cooks so well."

The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself!

"It cooks REALLY fast."

We've grilled steaks, chicken, hamburgers, sausage. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! The light on top is red when you plug it in. If you don't, you have nothing to complain about.

"I bought an old 7 ft."

If any item does not work correctly, RETURN IT before 30 days. I would have given 5 stars for this except for that. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed.
