Summary: I love this grill! It's good quality construction and easy to set up & use. It was super easy to clean too because of the non-stick feature. I used a large foil casserole pan to cover the food while it cooked and it came out perfect! I have not used the griddle yet, but am anxious to. I bought this grill to replace the Bella Cucina panni press/grill/griddle I purchased only a year ago. Don't waste your money on inferior products.
