"Boy was I right!"

Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. I never had the first grill but I can say it's worth the money! My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. I absolutely love my Ninja Foodie XL!

West Bend 6111 Final Thoughts

"This Foodi does it."

I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it. I can not believe how much we like this grill. I don't know what else to say except just BUY IT. Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use. My only complaint is the tilted launching system.

"Omg delicious."

The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. Just made a steak and it was to die for. We've grilled steaks, chicken, hamburgers, sausage. If done correctly the plates will snap in securely. Hello again, I have used this item extensively since purchase. If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink.

George Foreman GR26CB Final Thoughts

"Pretty much perfect."

And so so easy to remove and replace. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. I have grilled steaks, chicken, ribs, and fish. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep.

"Does a good job."

I don't know what voodoo Ninja uses, but more importantly I DON'T CARE. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. She even suggested making counter space for it. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. Great indoor grill for one or two people. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious.

Niat Final Thoughts

"You will not be sorry!"

I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates. She even suggested making counter space for it. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. I don't know what else to say except just BUY IT. I used to air fry and it was perfect.

The excess grease drains off AND it does not curl up like it does in a pan! So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. 2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. I bought this grill because I live alone. But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly.

"Heats up FAST."

My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. I don't know I might have had temp to high. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! I used to air fry and it was perfect. Exactly what it is advertised to be. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! In sum, this Foodi rocks the house.

"Bring it on!"

This makes storage more difficult, because I can't store it all together. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. Exactly what it is advertised to be.

I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. And so so easy to remove and replace.

"Go George!"

Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean. I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. If any item does not work correctly, RETURN IT before 30 days. Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here.

The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. This is where my only complaint comes into play. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base.
