Summary: Bought this little guy because it would be a healthier way to cook/eat our foods and grilling outdoors is not always a good option. I can use this on a kitchen counter top or outside on a picnic table and everything turns out perfectly with very little work on my part....and no messy grills and charcoal to clean....
Summary: On the highest heat, it took over 35 min to cook 2 butterflied pork chops. We finally gave up and put them in the broiler. Packed away and won't use again. Not as advertised and not worth the money.
Summary: I live in a highrise, am not allowed charcoal, and didn't want a gas grill or large electric grill on my balcony. This little grill is perfect. I've used it on the balcony almost every night since getting it a month ago. Obviously I don't leave it out 24/7. Contrary to the experiences of some reviewers, I find it heats up in 10 minutes to sizzling hot (at which point I dial it down a notch), and cleanup is easy either in the sink or in the dishwasher.
Summary: Picked up on of these used at a yard sale for $5. We just tried it for the first time grilling chicken, and the pieces came out delicious. Nice and crispy on the outside, with an intense bbq flavor. And I love the fact that the whole thing can go in the dishwasher!
