"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.

"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.

"Take notes on what works."

If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. To buy this small but very very efficient electric grill. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine.

"Thank you!"

I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter.

"It IS pretty good sized."

Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy.

"Hopefully."

My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle.

Best steak I was ever able to cook myself! If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine.

It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it.

There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on.
