dusty gadget or useful appliance??? a first impression and a later comment
on 22 August 2009
well as a family we own 4 grills of varing size and design already and that must mean its useful right.. i myself have a 10 portion grill (great for the family)but this one arrived and is a really good size for a small family of four or for one person to cook a full meal with meat and veg. my teens love it for its grilled sanwiches to.so yes ovrall very useful appliance.This particular grill seems alot sturdier than my 10 and has a nice compact design. the plates are very easy to remove and clean but if you find burned on bits i reccomend not using the scraper provided, i just wipe with a damp cloth ,close and leave sometimes until next morning when all the burnt bits are then softened and can just be wiped away, i myself have never needed to go near the dishwasher with these so i cant say how well they would do with it. the only reason it gets 4 and not 5 stars is that i would like to see a high / low setting on the heat as sometimes i find some of the stickier marinades can burn a bit on the grill but i found basting them on half way through the grilling can stop this.Probably the best looking of all the grills we have and the size that will get used the most.this is the best one so far the only reason for not buying this design would be if its not big enough.

ive had to lower the stars given to this product as on more intensive use ive found that the fat doesnt collect in the drip tray but just collects under the body of the grill around its feet and all over the surface that you stand it on ,also the cord could really have done with a few extra inches.
today ive had enough of the thing sticking to the surface it stands on as the fat runs under the unit ,ive tried tipping it more but to no avail, its now consigned to the bin. sorry george it started off so promisingly.
