"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.

Ninja AG301 Final Thoughts

"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.

You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. This thing is better than advertised. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable!

  • George Foreman 4-Serving Removable Plate Grill and Panini Press, Platinum, GRP3060P
  • 4 Servings: Tight on kitchen space? The 60-square inch grill is the most popular George Foreman Grill, with space for a tasty main course for four, or a complete meal with veggies and other sides.
  • Removable Plates: Easy cleanup is essential, and that’s what the removable grill plates are all about. Pop them in the dishwasher after grilling and they’ll be ready to go for your next meal.
  • Advanced George Tough Nonstick Coating: There’s a lot to love about this nonstick coating. It’s 3x¹ more durable, easy to clean, and removes the need for butter and oil.
  • Fat-Removing Slope: It’s the sure sign of a George Foreman Grill. The sloped grilling surface helps remove up to 42% of fat* from meats for lean, tasty meals.

"I love this thing!"

Just made a steak and it was to die for. I am so glad to buy this amazing grill. I bought this grill because I live alone. A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes!

"A Ninja Innovation."

From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too.

I think I have found what I was looking for! It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. I used to air fry and it was perfect. Great indoor grill for one or two people. Then turns green when it is ready to cook. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times.

"Cleaning was easy."

I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. It exceeded my expectations by far. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. Don't blame the machine if you go by time only.

"I've included many pics."

One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. If done correctly the plates will snap in securely. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well.
