"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!

"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.

"In spades."

It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! Great indoor grill for one or two people. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

"No smoke or grease."

To grill steak& chicken and it was perfect. It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. Exactly what it is advertised to be. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. I can not believe how much we like this grill. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller.

"Yup, 5 minutes!"

Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. 2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. This is the Foreman I know and love. Don't blame the machine if you go by time only. I think I have found what I was looking for!

"Grilled chicken no smoke."

If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it. The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. I've always wanted a way to make steak inside without smoke and grease everywhere. 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"VERY crispy with NO oil!"

Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol! It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. I can not believe how much we like this grill. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards.

"Heats up FAST."

Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! One cup of boiling water and I have Mac and Cheese in the backcountry. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. I think I have found what I was looking for! To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare.

"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.

"Hopefully."

Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it.

It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner.

It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. It exceeded my expectations by far. Don't blame the machine if you go by time only. Just made a steak and it was to die for.

"This thing Cooks so well."

The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. To get a medium steak we set it to medium rare. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself!

We've grilled steaks, chicken, hamburgers, sausage. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! The light on top is red when you plug it in. If you don't, you have nothing to complain about.

I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. It is perfect for a couple, or even a family of three or four.
