"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.

"Wonderful!"

I'm looking forward to using all the settings, and making all my usual recipes! Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Clean-up is a breeze with this unit! A new learning curve, but so worth the effort! Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well. I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends.

"It's very nice grill."

We also already tried fries and grilling burger. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. It is so easy, both to do and clean up afterwards. I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. It came back up to temp FAST and cooking time wasn't delayed. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

It does smoke a bit so really gotta watch that or here comes the smoke alarms. The XL is 50% bigger- good for 2-4 people. I've air-fried onion rings, fries, chicken nuggets, fried shrimp, and more.

"Worth the money!"

I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends. Also cooked burgers which came out amazing! To grill steak& chicken and it was perfect. I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter. There is nothing wrong with the clips that hold the plates in. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

"Fast and not messy."

I have been using this Foreman Grill nearly every day since it arrived. This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. To buy this small but very very efficient electric grill. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. Truly the top of the line in looks and performance! 2 steaks, same size 9 minutes they came out medium.

"WITH GRILL Marks!"

The worst part for him is waiting for it to cool enough to get permission to have it. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable! This thing is better than advertised. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. I preferred what I had but still needed a true grill function. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.

This is where my only complaint comes into play. Jerk chicken in the winter is going to be fantastic! Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage.

I also really like the compartment on the side to store the temperature probe.

And so so easy to remove and replace. It's made cheaply but that's what I expect for the price paid. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. To grill steak& chicken and it was perfect. This counter top grill is wonderful! Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine. Exactly what it is advertised to be.

"Awesome appliance!"

And so so easy to remove and replace. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. I bought this grill because I live alone. Great indoor grill for one or two people. If anything, I wish it was wider and not so deep. I don't know I might have had temp to high.

"In spades."

I'm a single guy and Ive worn through two of these- this is my third in 10 years. I wish I had a grill cleaner then to clean my grill and save the Teflon. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. I am giving my larger and older GF grills to friends. I also love that most of the parts are dishwasher-safe. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. It is smaller than the one I used to have, but I knew that when I ordered it.
