I recommend this small but sturdy electric outdoor grill.

It only took me about 10 minutes to assemble. The manual instructs you to run it on high for 20 minutes before putting food into it to season it. So I was ready to cook in 30 minutes after I opened the box.

The unit gives me much better control of the temperature compared to my 22" Weber charcoal grill. As an experienced outdoor cook, I really appreciate this. The thermometer in the dome is very useful, as you know instantly what your cooking temperature is when you close the lid. The electric heating element (the part that gets red hot) is substantial and appears to be of high quality. The grill surface itself appears to be of the highest quality, and the manual claims that it emits infra red heat. It is made of metal, feels hefty, and gives you a circular cooking surface that is 15 inches in diameter. The metal is cast into grates so you get a nice grill mark, and the metal is covered with what appears to be a fired black colored glaze.

When the grill is assembled, the heating element sits quite close to the grill/infra-red heat emitter.

It browns very well but can burn your meat, if you are not checking it and turning it every 4-5 minutes. The temperature as indicated on the built in thermometer drops a good 50 degrees when you open the lid for a minute or so (checking on the meat etc.). It takes about 3-4 minutes for the cooking temperature to rebound, and this is very consistent. When the controller is set at medium (3) it stays around 350 very reliably.

This extra control in the cooking temperature has allowed me to achieve excellent cooking results.

We never cook in the house anymore... this grill keeps all the smoke, smells and mess outside. We will use it year round. We Just keep it right outside the door on a little table. What a convenience! And to boot it has no legs so it's so portable you can take it with you...camping, traveling, to a park for a picnic, a relatives house...whatever.

We also cook veggies and potatoes. We wrap corn and potatoes in aluminum foil and toss 'em on.

It seems like it takes a little time to get up to 550 degrees, but what I found out is you really don't want it that hot because that thing cooks at a much lower temp than 550. And you can always preheat if you really want it that hot.

I am still learning just how to use it, but it's easy, and I love it already.

This is nice and small, super easy to use (just plug it in), and it grills food up quite nicely. The warming rack works well too. It is a bit hard to clean, so we are using foil.

It is the second one I bought. It sits right next to my gas grill on the upper deck. I haven't lit the gas grill since I bought it. I read all the write ups and agree with them for ease of use. I just turn it on and wait for the temperature to get to what I want and start cooking. This particular grill is easy to clean. I just remove the cooking plate and wash it or pressure clean it if needed. The reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it came missing one of the pressed-in nuts designed to hold the legs to the bowl (I went to the stored and got a bolt and nut rather than send it back) and the heat element is not rigid on it's frame. Poor quality control/inspection.

Hi I am Bill. I bought this grill recently and have used it 3 times. Tonight will be the 4th. Assembly was easy, I am not the most handy guy but I had it up and running with in a hr. It cooks well but slower than a gas or charcoal grill. I have left mine at full (5) hottest setting.First night I cooked pork chops just the grill NO wood chips & smoker box. they tasted just fine and had grill marks BUT not a real BBQ flavor! The second night I cooked a RIBEYE STAKE WITH wood chips and a smoker box and wet the chips down and it was better than nothing, But I think the wet chips did not really get smoking very much. 3RD time( last night) I used dry wood chips and cooked chicken. That was the best so far! the smoker box put out wood chip smoke very strongly! The chicken NOW really fast like BBQ should. Tonight I will do a Ribeye stake with dry chips and feel sure it will be asum BBQ tasting. So, for my CON: Grill very hard to clean. tonight I will go buy special cleaner and brush to clean it. The food leaves a (BLACK) BURNED area that I have NOT been able to get off as of yet. Hope the cleaner I buy and brush will fix this one con to the grill. SO, If you can have a gas grill GET IT! If you are NOT allowed to have it for fire codes (as is my case) then give this a try WITH DRY WOOD CHIPS! Thake care God Bless Bill M

15 minutes to put together, and actually grills food 99% as good as gas, only need to do a few wood chips, and away you go.. it is big enough to grill for 4 to 6 people too, without being " big"... Love it!
