"And Char flavor!"

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. I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends.

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.

"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.

"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.

"Again, no big deal."

If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. This counter top grill is wonderful! Just made a steak and it was to die for. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"This review is overdue."

The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. This is now my favorite thing in the kitchen. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink.

Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. This is where my only complaint comes into play. Exactly what it is advertised to be.

"Buy this grill."

Baking and roasting also work very well. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function.

A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! This is the Foreman I know and love. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. The features of this machine make it well worth learning to get the most out of it. To buy this small but very very efficient electric grill.

So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. This is now my favorite thing in the kitchen. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. My only complaint is the tilted launching system.
