I have waited along time to purchase one of these and I have to say I am very pleased I think this has already paid for itself night one we forego the usual meal in and grilled up burgers and oh wow even utilising the healthy option they were tender and juicy but best of all four cooked in 6 minutes just as the guide said. Sausages easy hotdogs easy cleaning easy Gas saved cooking time cut I am truly impressed. I was convinced cleaning would be an issue but nope so quick so easy just watch the hot plate. I would add it takes 2 minutes from turning on to being ready to use and the lid is well designed with its different positions for different types of food I think a panini will be next.
