"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.

Presto 9020 Final Thoughts

"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.

"It's a must try!"

Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results. There is also a guide included to help with temps and cook times! My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink.

"Great grill!"

The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. Not as good as a charcoal grill or smoker, but this is better than a gas grill. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance!

"Heats up FAST."

And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly.

My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. Great indoor grill for one or two people.

"My concern was smoke."

The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. I've always wanted a way to make steak inside without smoke and grease everywhere. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air.

"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!"

This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Just made a steak and it was to die for.

Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. We also already tried fries and grilling burger.

One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. I don't know I might have had temp to high. I would have given 5 stars for this except for that. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol!

"A Ninja Innovation."

The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it.
