Most people love the flavor of grilled food, but not everyone has the space for a large gas grill or the time to grill with charcoal. Enter the CEG-980 electric grill, a handy, attractive alternative to traditional grilling. Equipped with a telescoping VersaStand, the CEG-980 combines the simplicity of an indoor appliance with the delicious cooking performance of an outdoor grill, making it ideal for people who love cooking outdoors but don't want to deal with the hassle of propane or charcoal.
The Advantage of Electric Grilling
Traditional gas and charcoal grills offer a wide variety of styles and designs--from large multi-burner gas grills with built-in islands to barrel-like charcoal grills--but sometimes prove to be too large, too intimidating, or too inconvenient for would-be outdoor chefs. While gas grills are certainly handy, some people find it discomforting and dangerous to cook with propane. Charcoal grills, while perhaps less intimidating, take considerable time to light and prepare, and can be messy to clean up afterward. Plus, some apartments and condos ban the use of propane or charcoal altogether.
Electric grills minimize all of the above concerns, with instant-on controls, easy-to-clean designs, and no smelly gas or messy charcoal to get in the way of your cooking.
Familiar, Easy-to-Use Controls
The grilling process begins with the easiest fuel source you can find--a simple cord and outlet--along with a removable electric probe with a control knob that functions just like the knobs on most kitchen stoves. To get started, just plug the probe into the front of the grill and turn the knob to "Max." Within five minutes, the heating element will be glowing a toasty red and the grill will be ready for cooking. When you're finished grilling, the knob turns off just as easily. And cleanup couldn't be easier, as the porcelain-enameled grill grate cleans with a standard grill brush or removes for washing in an indoor or outdoor sink.
Powerful Grilling Performance
The Cuisinart electric grill cooks up juicy steaks, burgers, and fish just like a gas grill thanks to the powerful 1,500-watt, 5,120 BTU burner, which spreads heat quickly and evenly through the 145-square-inch grill grate. The compact design produces a greater watt-to-square-inch ratio, leading to higher temperatures on the grate and better, more uniform cooking for your food. In addition, the grill includes a stainless-steel heat reflector in the lid. This extra layer not only acts as an insulator for trapping heat inside the grill, but actually reflects rising heat inside the grill back onto the top surfaces of your food, reducing cooking times and saving electricity. All of this translates into searing hot temperatures and prefect grill lines on everything you cook.
Despite the compact size, the grilling surface is large enough to grill eight burgers, eight stakes, six to 10 chicken breasts, or up to 4 pounds of fish.
Quick, Efficient Setup
The electric grill not only shines when it's loaded with food, but also when you're on the move, as the grill is a breeze to transport, set up, and store. The grill includes the thoughtfully designed VersaStand, an easy-to-use, easy-to-set-up grill stand that keeps the grill at a comfortable cooking height. The VersaStand sets up and packs away in seconds, giving you more time to enjoy the event and less time worrying about the hassles of putting your barbecue together. In fact, the grill and stand are so convenient to transport, carry, and set up, you won't think twice about tossing it in the trunk of your car.
The VersaStand comes integrated into the base of the grill, with a set of telescoping poles that smoothly collapse for easy storage. When you're ready to grill, simply push the button on each VersaStand leg to release the telescoping legs, and then lift up the grill box. Once the two legs drop into position, you'll have a sturdy grill that stands at an ideal grilling height. No more breaking your back bending over a grill that sits mere inches off the ground. And when you're finished grilling, the stand collapses as easily as it sets up, making it easy to pack up your stuff. The grill also includes a secure front lid lock, which keeps the lid safely closed when you're on the move, and a pronounced carrying handle that lets you tote the 17-pound grill just like a briefcase.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
We only used this a couple times now, and I am already starting to see problems cropping up with the controller as well. I have to remove it and give it a good shake to get it to come back on.
I suspect this grill will not last much longer, and definitely not through the summer grilling season. I would not recommend, not buy again. I'm already looking for a better replacement.
I didn't give it four or more stars as of right now, but it's not a bad grill if you can't have a gas grill. However, I think Cuisinart makes a gas version and for the price I paid, I wish I went with that one. Overall, it's not a bad grill, but I would stick with gas/propane as electric just can't compete for cooking temparatures.
Service while ringing the number in the manual I was told that they were just wholesalers & call the "factory".
I waited 35 mins to speak to a person at Cuisinart who then put me on hold from several mins, then gave me another number.Later a customer rep called & explained that the probe does not always work and to try again, he stayed on line while I tried then said it was defective!
Now on way back to Amazon.Incidently very cheaply made Chinese product hiding under Cuisinart label.

If you want to cook vegetables in a basket, they don't really fit if you want to close the lid. I will give it a couple of more tries but I might have to upgrade to another brand as I do like the power of a grill.
Kept going on and off and would not grill the food appropriately and take way too long
After first use the lead had a band in it allowing air to get out during cooking I believe it was not thick enough to hold the heat that it did disperse
