2) Storing it was a bit difficult as the handle makes it an awkward shape to fit into standard cabinets. I finally had to stand it up on its back in an extra high cabinet. Maybe deeper shelving would help. It's not a flat unit, so you can't stack skillets and the like on top of it very easily.
3) In the video I comment on how maybe I should have used the flat grill for the turkey patties. Wife corrected me saying the panini hot plates allow the fat to drip down easier.
4) Manual comes with cooking time suggestions on several types of foods along with some recipes in the back of the manual.
5) After the end of the video/cooking I was away for 20 minutes with the grill open to cool. It was plenty cool enough in that time to remove and wash the hot plates.
6) As you can see, I can fit about three fist-sized patties flattened onto a single side. I find it very funny that the stock photos show only two pieces of bacon. I personally would not cook bacon on this thing since the grease splattering that normally comes with bacon will go everywhere! Talk about a mess to clean up. But its a great size for pancakes and you can cook one on each side at the same time.
7) The non-stick hot plates clean up easy enough with some hot water and soap.
8) Wife was unimpressed with how cheap the unit looks. The old style white Foreman grills didn't look this cheap. But that's looks. . .it still cooked just fine.
OVERALL: It's another Foreman grill with some added versatility to handle thicker items or give you more cooking surface when needed. Heats up fast. Cooks fast (depending on what you're cooking) and cleans up easy. Other than the aesthetics and storage challenges, this is a great unit.
1. Removable plates make it incredibly easy to clean. Much easier than mine current panini maker without them. The fact that I was able to stick them in the dishwasher made me so happy after I grilled some salmon.
2. The ability to open the hinge and make pancakes was a real draw.
3. The plates were very easy to change.
4. It is compact and stores easily.
5. Heated up quickly and had the adjustable heat settings that made it easy to cook different things.
1. I didn't like not having an on/off switch. Needing to plug it in each time and unplug it when done was a pain in my butt.
2. While the plates were easy to put on/ take off, the top never really lined up with the bottom when closed.
3. The drip tray was nice, but not when you tried to open it and make eggs. Nope.
4. We found that the top wasn't heating at the same rate as the bottom. So much so that we were needing to flip sandwiches halfway through. Not sure if this is manufacturing error or just how it works, but that was the final straw for our usage.
5. The top seems too light for a panini grill, which needs the pressure to help cook the top of the bread.
So all in all, we are not keeping this one and continuing to use the $50 one we got at Target with that Giada lady's name on it. Its bigger and not as flexible, but works.
The features I like about this grill are a single grease collection area - whereas other grills sometimes drain grease from the outer corners of the grill, this one drains grease from the inside center of the grill into a drain plate underneath the grill. Having a central draining area makes the grill easier to clean. The plate underneath is made of plastic, and cleans up easily. Another feature I like, but my husband isn't sure about is that this grill has only one heat control. I like having 1 control - I know if the grill is on, and what it's set on. The other grill had 3 controls - 1 for temperature (200-425 degrees)- which was called the "griddle", the central control called "selector" which chooses between the griddle, or grill/panini, and then the control on the right hand side called "Grill/Panini" and the controls are warm, low, med, high, and sear. I never knew if the grill was on until it got hot.Read more ›
