"I STILL LOVE IT!"

I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air.

Elite Gourmet EMG-980B Final Thoughts

"Swish, swish!"

It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. I bought this grill because I live alone. Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method.

"This grill works fine."

I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in.

Elite Gourmet EGL-3450 Final Thoughts

"This review is overdue."

I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use. It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. I used to air fry and it was perfect. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. Best choice ever this grill is absolutely amazing.

"Wiped excess off."

I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared.

"It is truly smokeless."

It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. This is where my only complaint comes into play. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too.

"Nothing stuck or burned."

I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. 6 because the landing wasn't solid. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark.

"Cleans up well."

It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. I am so glad to buy this amazing grill. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. This is where my only complaint comes into play. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"Highly recommend."

So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. 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. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! Then turns green when it is ready to cook. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil.

"Awesome appliance!"

I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. I don't know I might have had temp to high.

"It is perfect."

My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. This counter top grill is wonderful! I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. This is now my favorite thing in the kitchen. A new learning curve, but so worth the effort!

"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.

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.

"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.

"For me to clean."

It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect!

Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. I highly recommend this larger George Foreman unit with the removable plates. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare.
