Bought this grill as it has removable plates - comes with 2 sets ridged (standard) and flat.

Started of with a toasted sandwich which was great. Also have now cook a lovely "lump" of rump steak. Tenderised (hit with a wooden mallet !) before cooking and turned regularly on the grill for about 10 - 12 minutes to give a superb medium cooked steak. I'm no Jamie Oliver but this is so easy to use but does take quite a bit of space on the work top.

My wife says the best bit is "easy to clean" but she loved the steak !

All and all very good value and would recommend.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
The VonShef Contact Grill is a great and multi-functional appliance that can be used to toast sandwiches, and grill all manner of foods including steak and burgers. I tested it out making a humble cheese toastie and then some lamb burgers. It performed magnificently!

Pros:
It heats up fast! You're good to go in a few seconds.
It has a pretty large surface area so can do a couple of steaks or even 4 burgers at once.
The surface is sloped so the fat runs off and is collected in a detachable drip tray.

Cons:
Could be a bit wider. It fits two standard bread slices, but a longish Panini will have to be cut in half.
The electrical chord is only 60 cm long which is a bit short to move it around. When grilling meat it does produce a bit of smoke so I put it on the hob, under the extractor fan and the chord is only just long enough (and the plug is right next to the cooker)

All in all, a perfect and excellently priced multifunctional grill/sandwich maker.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
If you are looking to cook grills for two people, look no further. This will accommodate two sizable rump steaks and, more importantly cooks them to perfection. It is not recommended though for cooking meat with bone in as this might scratch the non-stick surface plates.

It looks good on your kitchen work surface. It is very easy to clean. Not all of these products are so this is an important plus. The drip tray is a good size and a plastic scraper is provided to remove anything that may have attached itself to the plates.

The instructions could be better. The print is unbelievably small, smaller than the smallest typeface on an optician's reading card. The cooking time is very imprecise,virtually try it on max and see how you get on. We followed that instruction and still managed to achieve a perfect result, so perhaps it isn't as daft as it sounds after all.

This grill is ideal for up to two people, unless you serve very small portions. Our household of two adults is very impressed and will be using this on a regular basis.

The temperature is just about good enough, I have only used it for paninis calzones and toasted sandwiches which have both been fine. The interchangeable flat and ridged plates are good but the button for the top one catches on the handle. Theres a cheap feel to those buttons. Overall I am happy with the results so far.

I really love this grill, which makes great toasted sandwiches as well as grilling meat or chicken - even sausages. No worries of fat dripping everywhere, as the grill slopes slightly down to a removable catching channel. So pleased I got this, as the grill gets really hot and sandwiches toast very quickly. Just remember to follow instructions and keep grill well away from anything else when in use, and NEVER let small children anywhere near when in use!

This product is very good value for money. Looks pretty stylish in the kitchen and easy to use and clean but that is where it ends. The grill is seriously under powered and doesn't maintain a high grill/heat setting even when set to full power, often resulting in foods steaming rather than grilling! Particularly meats or foods with a higher moisture content. Also more delicate foods such as fish tend to squash flat whilst cooking due to the weight of the upper plate.
Overall a good grill but with some drawbacks. I guess you get what you pay for!

It has now become a staple item in the kitchen - everything is so delicious in it and meats don't get dry, but cooks very quickly, so be careful!

First time I used it it tripped the electric! Not as good value for money as I thought. Would go for a better make next time!

Does what it should - flat plates work for paninis and griddle for burgers. Construction is a bit tinny though.
