I use it a lot!
on May 11, 2008
I bought this cuz it was only $[...], expecting to use it only occasionally. I ended up using it for dinner 4 times a week!
PROS: With a small cooking surface, it is perfect for single servings (or picky family members with different dinner preferences.) It cooks chicken and fish very quickly. No more than 5 or 6 minutes for a thawed chicken breast; less for fish fillets. I find steak to be juicier and more tender than frying or broiling.
Kinda easy to clean. Just wipe with a couple paper towels. When cool, clean around the rest of the components.
CONS: Small cooking surface. The cord is short. And, except for the plastic handle, it gets VERY HOT so you cannot move it or turn it around when hot. Depending on what you are cooking, the drip cup may need emptying during the cooking process, which can be messy.
Sandwiches do not brown well, due to the height of the internal grids.
