"In spades."

All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results.

"This thing is."

I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter.

"Go George!"

So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. The features of this machine make it well worth learning to get the most out of it. This one is greatly improved over my first one. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly.

"And Char flavor!"

If you don't, you have nothing to complain about. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! 6 because the landing wasn't solid. This is where my only complaint comes into play. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic.

"Worth the money!"

I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! To grill steak& chicken and it was perfect. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"Thank you!"

It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. And so so easy to remove and replace. I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. Great indoor grill for one or two people. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill.

It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean!

"I love this thing!"

In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. I don't know I might have had temp to high. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. If done correctly the plates will snap in securely.

"Buy this grill."

It exceeded my expectations by far. If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage.

"For me to clean."

I think I have found what I was looking for! We also already tried fries and grilling burger. 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. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing.

Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use. This counter top grill is wonderful! Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing!
