"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.

"I'm ready for the XXL!"

The excess grease drains off AND it does not curl up like it does in a pan! I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe. My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean.

Deik Final Thoughts

"I know I know genius!"

It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. Just made a steak and it was to die for. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. I bought this grill because I live alone. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it.

A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! And so so easy to remove and replace. I used to air fry and it was perfect. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house.

George Foreman GR2144P Final Thoughts

"Good size."

So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! Then turns green when it is ready to cook. Have used 10+ times and haven't had to wash the plates yet with this method. I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more. To grill steak& chicken and it was perfect. My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. I bought this grill because I live alone.

I bought this grill because I live alone. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! There is no way for grease to fall elsewhere. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable!

George Foreman RPGF3601BKX Final Thoughts

"Love this appliance!"

I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. It exceeded my expectations by far. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people.

"No smoke or grease."

6 because the landing wasn't solid. 2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins. The settings make it easy to get the end result of perfect cooked steak. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use.

"Still, I bought one."

If you don't desire black all over your hands, wash the plates in a sink. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine. I might have used the sprays otherwise, but there really is no need. I drop them in hot soapy water and go eat my dinner. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. 6 because the landing wasn't solid.

I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. Cleaning is so easy and you haven't deal with grease splatter. The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged.

"Broiled meat is horrible."

A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! I can not believe how much we like this grill. I would have given 5 stars for this except for that. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. So easy to use and clean& cooks perfectly. This is where my only complaint comes into play.

"It is very easy to use."

I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. The one star ratings must have been written by the intelectually challenged. The light on top is red when you plug it in. I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. This caught my eye mainly because it's an indoor griller. I think I have found what I was looking for!
