Summary: I knew we would like this as we have owned Jenn-Air downdraft electric grills for years. This was slightly different than past models, which were just a griddle plate on top of the heating element. While initially I was put off by the price (the old style was more like $40) I find this very easy to use and I think it heats more evenly because it has its own element. So far I have used it for pancakes, which was its primary intended use.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Heats Up Quickly, Large Surface Area
