"Just do it!"

I can not believe how much we like this grill. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself! Exactly what it is advertised to be. Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. I can not believe how much we like this grill. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

"WITH GRILL Marks!"

If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. This thing is better than advertised. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. I don't know I might have had temp to high. Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use.

"VERY crispy with NO oil!"

I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. The light on top is red when you plug it in. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. This one is greatly improved over my first one. 6 because the landing wasn't solid. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter.

"Wiped excess off."

We also already tried fries and grilling burger. This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

"Does a good job."

It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. This is where my only complaint comes into play. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine.

"Cleaning was easy."

This thing is better than advertised. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. Hello again, I have used this item extensively since purchase. This one is greatly improved over my first one.

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!

"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.

"It cooks REALLY fast."

Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. I highly recommend this larger George Foreman unit with the removable plates. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter.

"It IS pretty good sized."

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.

Hello again, I have used this item extensively since purchase. Just made a steak and it was to die for. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine.
