ADDENDUM: I still love this gadget. I attempted to answer a question from someone who had asked if BBQ sauce could be used. As I was answering, I got a red flag, saying the link had expired--DRAT! Anyway, here is my response to if one can use BBQ sauce with this appliance: Yes! I've had excellent results using the grill plates and using teriyaki sauce or BBQ sauce. What I have done, just trying it all out is as follows: 1. The first time I just brushed teriyaki sauce onto my burger on its top, slid spatula under, and when I got to the grill, I flipped the sauced side down. This leaves the top of the burger available to brush sauce on it. (The beauty of this grill: put the cover down and you don't have to keep flipping the burgers which can cause them to dry out. Not having to flip, has given really juicy, flavorful burgers. 2. The 2nd time, I had bought a London broil and marinated it in a bowl in the refrigerator for a day and overnight. (during the day, I flipped in the bowl periodically, to make sure teriyaki was getting into both sides of the steak). I got my "pinky perfect--i.e. medium rare on grill/sear for 4 to 5 minutes. 3. BARBECUE SAUCE--with steak. I put some sauce in the bottom of a bowl, placed steak in the bowl; then coated the top. I let it sit overnight in a covered bowl. Again, used grill/sear for 4-5 minutes and got pinky perfect--i.e. medium rare. NOTE: Before I bought this grill, a friend of mine who is a professional chef agreed with me to USE COOKING SPRAY ON THE GRILL/GRIDDLE even though non-stick surface. The only time I have not used cooking spray was when I made grilled cheese, for which I melt and brush melted butter on the sandwiches before grilling. I brush melted butter on the top of the sandwich, pick up with spatula and flip to put the buttered side down on the grill first, which puts the unbuttered side up. Brush melted butter on the top, close the cover and VOILA! As much as I despise the kitchen and cooking, this little gadget has been my GODSEND! I have RA and as much as I love a cast-iron skillet, when my husband is gone, I struggle getting the skillet to the sink to wash and hard for me to scrub. Now, I don't hesitate to cook a hot meal for myself when he is gone. EASY PEEZY clean up with no scrubbing, just a dish rag, and everything cooks perfectly. BTW: I LOVE my salmon on this grill. As with the steak, I have marinated in teriyaki sauce overnight; and I have also marinated in maple syrup---Spraying cooking oil has been another 'key" to the easy cleanup after the sticky sauces! YUMMY! YUMMY! Hope this helps, and I hope you enjoy your Cuisinart grill/griddler as much as I do! Blessings! JJ
It uses electricity, and since I am off-grid I'd rather use electric over gas.
It does a nice job of searing & cooking meats, paninis, quesadillas and anything using both plates closed.
It's easy to clean.
It's big, and doesn't open fully under my upper cabinets.
The heating is inconsistent. For many things this is not a problem, but it seems to cycle on & off to maintain temperature, and during the off times it stops cooking. This was especially troublesome during the open position for pancakes, which didn't brown and stopped cooking. It also stopped cooking in the middle of the cooking time for bacon and it took a long time for it to cook.
There isn't much (if any) slope, and the grease rarely makes it to the grease tray.
It takes a long time to pre-heat, and if using the searing feature, you have to be right there ready to add your meat as soon as the light turns green or you'll miss the 2-minute time for searing.
All said and done, I'm still giving it 4 stars for the PROS listed above. I'm able to use it on top of my range on a cookie sheet, to use the upper fan when necessary. (Although in that case I do have to hold the lid open manually.) I don't NEED to use it in the open position for anything I can do on my range griddle, which works better. And, with any of these appliances there are trade-offs, and none of them does everything well.
..... but where is Hazel?!?!!!! You're gonna need HER!
But please read, there are immense PRO's to this item, but it was the major CON that turned me off sadly :(((
XLNT Sear & Taste!!!!
*Cooks Faster than most are accustomed to,
*Be prepared for immense grease cleanup, HAZEL would even complain!
*Plus a few other things that need be mentioned.....
The Pertinents to my needs:
My oven died, it's Christmas week, no "woe is me" preferred --- so I (was forced) to do my research and picked this above all other products out there (also necessary was the NEC xmas eve-day delivery).
Steak was marinating and a-waitin for xmas day dinner (just me.... invitations rescinded obviously)....
A few issues to deal w/amazon with, and a free amazon return to come hopefully.
1) poss not all heating elements working (did a test run on scallions)
2) cosmetic blemishes/almost scratches underneath the big friggin sticker on top.
I know how to use these puppies indoors, but I've a few gripes beyond the above-mentioned 2 items.... see below.
The steak truly&exceptionally seared like nothing I have ever encountered indoors...twas wonderful!
I also placed this directly on top of my gas stove with a tempered glass cutting board and foil oven liner on top of it.
I did have to put the meat directly on the center of it due to abv poss issue (and not towards the outsides; this also limited my additional items cooking on the grill-base).
I seared twice (at beginning of grilling, and midway thru), added more scallions to the grill trying to keep them more centered ---- and I was impressed! Not to mention ....ALL was extremely tasty!
I also did not scrape off my bbq sauce/etc marinade before cooking (instructions say to do so)..... that's how creative chefs are made! Besides, I like my meats the way I like them .....and it still did fine!
However ----if not for the following issues, I would have requested a replacement because all was soooo utterly fab tasting:
1) My Filet Mignon (more reg-steak-sized than fist-sized) approx 1.5" tall looked more like a McD's 'patty' after searing top&bottom at the same time. BBQ-sauce glazing worked out fine, as did the final clean up of the unit.
2) This thing is lovely looking, but it's footprint is quite B-I-G. An apt-sized kitchen prob won't have anywhere to store it (save your box+pkg), and the dust where I live will be too much to just leave it out on the kitchen counter. I prefer a nice clean kitchen counter without many appliances left out. However, I was willing to accept this left out, but the greasy mess caused by cooking (mentioned above) IS more than I am willing to tackle after every meal/every useage.
3) Also, get used to cooking TWICE as FAST as you are normally used to. While a benefit for electric useage and time waiting to eat...... you'd best have everything ready to 'sit down and eat' before you even start cooking. I'd be willing to go there except for all the issues above. All in all, cooking @ twice(x2) the normal amt of time IS something to get used to for most of us probably.
4) I did do as another reviewer mentioned, something I've normally done for these 4-sided open cooking units normally.... I placed alum foil all around the sides and front (for the knobs) in order to catch any small excess grease that may have popped out. Sadly, I wish I had also included the rear in order to protect my stove (which it sat on). All was for expected grease clean-up.... and yes, I am thankful that I did. Yes, perhaps my left-on bbq sauce made the entire moment messier --- but I like my meat flavorful and I am not into tossing on some room-temp bbq sauce after the meat has cooked. Beyond that, I was truly disappointed that my $26 filet shrunk so much (they don't when I normally broil or bbq them) into some tiny patty-like thing. But was happy enough to eat it as my xmas meal cuz it was so darn'ed good....much better than sitting in the cold outside and attempting to do a bbq moment.
5) This is what made me decide against a replacement:
Even though a very big footprint, and while it yields quite the tasty food (willing to accept still) ---- it was because of the grease splatter that found it's way UP to the microwave. My micro is at least 3 feet above the stove, and yet it had grease-splatter all over the front of it. This leads me to wonder just how much grease is splattered everywhere else on the side counter-tops and the floor. Yes, it is an open-sided (all 4 sides) unit ---but I never ever imagined that by just lifting the top up possibly 4-8 times that I would end up with the mess that I had!
So yes ----- it was a long morning of cleaning up that mess, at least the grease that I could see.
All in all, I'd recommend this in a minute to anyone who has a maid (and poss no conscience)... or who doesn't mind spending quite a bit of time in clean-up mode the morning after. The unit is amazing for what's out there, seared extremely well (I did 2 sears (at beginning and midway)), and flavored my meal with a grill/blackened taste that just rocked my world! That searing did, yes it did - set my meat with nice hard, flavorful black sear marks that I could taste! It was all wonderful.... until the cleanup the morning after :(
If you do buy and use, I recommend the following:
1) Use the grill scraper while it's still warm to clean off the burnt stuff.... makes tomorrow's cleaning much easier. Don't remove anything, just make sure that you use the scraper (w-all of the plates in place) to get that stuff off (let the top stuff fall onto the bottom plate) before it hardens. Washing the 2 plates this morning was a breeze by doing that last night after eating.
2) In the morning, get out your paper towels and 405! Be ready to inspect all counters, under cabinets, floor, etc and clean up properly so as to avoid gooey greasy build-ups and poss bugs. Not to mention, that you'll appreciate your lil bbq clean thru the years to come.
Wish I could've kept this (sans the replacement I would need) cuz it truly does a most wonderful job of searing/grilling indoors (other than turning your boneless piece of meat into a small patty). But that final clean-up this morning has led me down the path of 2 alternative options of indoor, cold weather grilling. Both much cheaper than this, but I am one who has decided that if I'm doing this kind of cooking on the countertop (I normally do my bbq'ing in the broiler when it's cold outside) ---- then I need a unit that has a closed top to it. This panini-style with 4 sides open allowing grease to splatter everywhere just ain't gonna make me happy ever! Additionally, a unit with a close'd top will offer me a more familiar grilling time when it comes to cooking, readiness, etc. They may not offer any top-searing abilities, but at least the grill portion is fully encapsulated with a cover of some type.
The two that I am now looking at have both been decently rated in 2017 indoor grilling reviews. Anything to keep me from feeling like my own maid, esp if I want to use something during these colder months should my oven ever die again.
Hopefully even Hazel might approve of one of them.....
In finalizing, while I REALLY want to love this item ---if it weren't for this morning's cleanup--- I just can't. For me at least, I just can't do the cleanup that will be required after using. I will be more than happy if I can find something a bit less messy in the long run as long as it fulfills my needs of grilling indoors tastily. But for those of you who might have your own Hazel ---go for it! It's exceptionally fab in regards to searing, cooking, and taste. Given only 3 stars due to the cleanup.... wanted to give 4 for fairness, but just can't.
In today's world, that kind of final exterior greasy outcome is completely unacceptable because we are all waaay too busy!!
If just a tiny small panini-style unit used basically for sandwiches & left on the counter-top that req's negligent cleanup, that's one thing ---- but this thing truly is a beast... at both a) larger than you will probably expect, and b) grease output & cleanup :(
Really, I wanted to absolutely love it.... it was so 'sweet' (although a tad bit large). But that cleanup this morning, esp upon looking up and finding grease spatter 3 FEET UP on my microwave door..... I just can't love it any longer, but boyhowdee --I sure did want to...
