"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.

"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.

"Broiled meat is horrible."
There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner.

"No smoke or grease."
I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL! I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. I have used this item for a few days and I want to say, I am even more pleased! The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish.

"It IS pretty good sized."
Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen!

There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. I can not believe how much we like this grill. Just made a steak and it was to die for. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it.

"My concern was smoke."
I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards.
