This review is from: Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler (Kitchen)Improvements over previous model are the reversable grill plates that snap in and out very easily and now you do not have 2 extra plates to store somewhere. The grease catch pan is integrated into the bottom and removes very easily for cleaning. Cleanup is a snap: take off the 2 grill plates and they wash and cleanup so easy I don't bother putting them in the dishwasher. Clean the drip tray and you are done. Fast & easy.
I disagree with those that say it is great for cooking small meals or for a small family. It cooks the meat so fast, you better not walk away. First thing I cooked were good sized hamburgers & they were at 180° in 5 minutes. The next 4 were perfectly cooked at 4 minutes. Used the Sear setting per the instruction book with the grill preheated. New York Strip sirloins were done in 3 1/2 to 4 minutes on the Sear setting. Fast cooking & the meat is eye appealing with the grill marks on both sides. Batch number 3 will be pork chops tonight.
Granted, it doesn't quite do the job my Weber grill does outside, but when it is 15 below zero, the Griddler is very nice to have for indoor winter usage.
Great indoor grill, cooks fast, easy cleanup... I highly recommend it.

Keep hoping those grill plates continue to snap in and out. Mine broke after 4 uses. Couldn't read the factory serial number due to the factory messing up with the placement of the sticker. Cuisinart wouldn't take it back - and if they would have, I would have had to pay shipping BOTH ways. Amazon impressed me though. They refunded me and accepted the item back after the manufacturer wouldn't. Kudo's to them. I'll continue to spend my money with Amazon, but not on a Cuisinart product.
