"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.

"Love this appliance!"

Ninja executes this exactly perfectly here. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. I can not believe how much we like this grill. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. And against the rules, used unfiltered olive oil. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's!

"Still, I bought one."

A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! My only complaint is the presets for the thermometer are a little off. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. The Ninja air fryer was my favorite, but this is incredibly much better. I never had the first grill but I can say it's worth the money! If the dimensions are off, a small roasting rack will work in here too. The light on top is red when you plug it in.

"Cleanup is a cinch."

It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle.

PHILIPS HD6372/94 Final Thoughts

"Still 5 stars."

Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. This unit is well made, solid, and extremely easy to clean! You can only put the air fryer tray OR the grill inside at one time. My only complaint is the tilted launching system. Dish detergents cause oxidation on the exposed metal on the underside of the plates.

"Pretty much perfect."

Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. If you're wondering if you should buy don't hesitate. If you like grilled food and want to cook it inside this is your answer. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. So far have cooked steaks which cooked perfect! The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it.

OVENTE GR2001B Final Thoughts

"Wiped excess off."

It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. It exceeded my expectations by far. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. Just made a steak and it was to die for.

"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.

"Nothing stuck or burned."

I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe. 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. Eating on the cheap for lunch just got a whole lot better. My favorite right now is tomato and sliced sharp cheese on wheat English muffins.

"Cleanup is a cinch."

There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. I bought this grill because I live alone. And so so easy to remove and replace. Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine.

Only thing I havent been able to cook in it so far was frozen pizza lol! This is where my only complaint comes into play. The temperature is very good and reasonably even across the whole surface. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. If you don't, you have nothing to complain about. I can not believe how much we like this grill. Exactly what it is advertised to be.

"Is faster than a grill."

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. This one is greatly improved over my first one. Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results. I used to have a George Foreman Grill, and I missed it. I have to say this machine is absolutely amazing. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon.

The two little dogs on the plates need to be inserted in receptacles on the s base. Great indoor grill for one or two people. People need to pay attention to the plates before taking them out. We have tried other and I have to say I didn't think it would be this good! It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! My older, smaller grill was an unwieldy mess to clean.

2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium. It is fast and the meat is juicy and delicious, the'sandwich' things I have tried. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.
