5.0 out of 5 stars Teppanyaki Madness!, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VonShef Electric XL Teppanyaki Style Barbecue Table Grill Griddle with Adjustable Temperature Control 2000 Watts, Free 2 Year Warranty
A perfectly stunning bit of kit. There, said it. We've had ours for over a month and it has exceeded every expectation.

Originally I bought it simply to cook alongside the old barbie, but this has probably taken over. Yes, I've 'charred' the odd bits and pieces on the barbecue that I started on this, but frankly that was simply because you are used to having a bit of 'burn' at barbecue time. Keep turning food and it will cook right through.

We've cooked beef and pork steaks, beef and lamb burgers, chicken pieces, fish (in foil too), mushrooms and other veggies, prawns, bacon eggs, sausages, pancakes, fact it's hard to figure what you can't do on it, as it is after all a big frying pan. Welsh cakes are next on the list.

I'd read on other similar items of people moaning that it 'keeps switching off'. This is the thermostatic control kicking in. You have a simple dial that goes from 1 to 5 but frankly I've never took it over 3. At the right temperature it cuts off then kicks back in as it cools. Nothing can describe sitting at the picnic table with the sun out and your meal sizzling next to you! It is easy to cook on and keeping it on the lower heats stops you damaging the non stick.

Cleaning is easy as it cools down within about fifteen minutes and a wipe with oiled kitchen paper to get bits off then a warm soapy cloth keep it in perfect condition. I always oil ours before we use it and sometimes after use to store.

The two big handles either side mean if it rains you can whip it indoors, and it's easy to move about.

Issues? Well it can be hard to find a level surface to cook on in our garden or house, but I just tilt it to move the fat to the drip tray. I have noticed that this can mean fat will run under the pan and out through the sides - so more my fault than the grill's.

Picked ours up for £18.99 and £7.99 post and it is SOOOO well worth it. I cannot work out how we did outdoor cooking before (and you can use it inside as well).

It's so nice being able to sit AT the picnic table as the food cooks, rather than in the smoke on the other side of the garden away from everyone. And the prep? Take it out, plug in, oil, cook. About 5 minutes at most. Not like piling up the charcoal and trying to get it burning and THEN waiting for the right heat.

We still use the barbie for some bits, but this can cook a whole meal on its own - and don't skimp on the smaller ones, get the big one, you won't regret it.

UPDATE: I just wanted to add if you have a family and dinners are round the TV, this is a great way to get the kids round the table inside and out!

Just wanted to add a comment to my review. Still going strong and it's worth a guide on maintenance.

Always oil it well when cooking and in between. When it cools stick it (electric socket end up and out of) a bowl of soapy water and a simple gentle scrub will get the surface clean. I sometimes use a fingernail if anything is burnt on.

The issue with these is the underneath which is like a 'silver' guard, but by chance I discovered how you can remove this. The legs have little rubber bottoms on them, and if you remove these you can unscrew the legs (need a Phillips screwdriver) and the guard comes off completely to be cleaned if needed (especially if you have oil and fat running onto it). Screw it back on when clean and you have a clean Teppanyaki! You probably will only need to do this rarely so as long as you clean the cooking surface each time you should keep this a good long time.
