Summary: First-time for making a panini (baby bella mushrooms, onions and Jarlsberg cheese). This Breville Smart Grill worked like a charm. Couldn't be easier with the clear instructions provided and all the user-friendly features.
Summary: LOVE LOVE LOVE this grill. The cleanliness and well though out design really justify the price. Off or on, there is an indicator, warming level will beep to let you know when the desired temperature is reached. Plates are interchangeable. The top is hinged where you can control how much of a "press" you would like. It can be opened all the way to utilize both sides.
Excerpt: My only complaint is that I had to buy a second ribbed grill plate. I believe that customers ought to be given the option of two ribbed plates, two flat ones,or one of each (which is your current practice). I would never use your product to make pancakes, fry eggs etc. I bought it to be able to cook meat and fish are varying temperatures with two ribbed grill plates. Still, I love your grill and have already prepared several steaks and fish on it.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy to Start, Even Heat, Great Vendor Abt, Lots of Space
Summary: I have owned multiple Cuisinart Griddlers over the last few years; the Smart Grill is certainly a big step up in terms of quality and features. Considering that you can get a new regular Griddler for 1/3 to 1/6 the price of the Smart Grill, everyone may not see the cost justification, but I think it is worth it.
An awesome piece of machinery for high-end grilling rock stars

Summary: This is my first electric grill... so I don't have much in the way of comparison. But I have to say my experience with this product in the past three months I've owned it has been outstanding. Here's what I think: Pros: - Beefy construction. Everything is high quality, like the hinges and arm locking mechanism look like they are the suspension from from a high end sports car. A beautiful stainless steel work of art. Nice-feeling grippy knobs and bright display.
Summary: Just got it a couple of days ago. I've cooked salmon twice. The fish cooked perfectly. I was considering buying the Cuisinart griddler deluxe, but after having my basic Cuisinart griddler bite the dust after a month of infrequent use, I decided to spring for twice the price in hopes I would get twice the performance.
Summary: I've owned several George Foreman grills and decided to try this one. So far so good. I gave it five stars because I've used everyday since I've had it and works great. I've made chicken, steaks and pork on the grill. Kabobs came out wonderful. I work long hours and I don't have time to fire up my Big Green Egg for every meal so this is a nice way to eat real food without a lot of hassle. The nonstick bothered me quite a bit.
Summary: Lives up to the Breville name. Grilled vegetables--hamburgers--kabobs; all are great. Makes a great panini too. The removable grill plates are a breeze to clean, and the heating elements provide good even heating over the entire cooking surface.
