Great Product If you are looking for an alternative to an outdoor gas grill, this is it. It is easy to clean and cooks well. I lined the drip pan with foil. I like it especially because it is very convenient when entertaining with small groups or when the weather doesn't cooperate for outdoor grilling. It's a great product. May 9, 2013
Returned after 1 use I bought this after reading mostly great reviews, but returned it after the 1st time I tried it. First off, only the drip pan is dishwasher safe. The grill top has to be washed by hand, which was difficult to do, mostly because it was too large to fit in my sink. Also, didn;t understand the purpose of putting water in the drip pan, as recommended. Second, it does leave grill marks, which is fine, but once the temperature level was reached, it seemed to stop cooking until the temperature light went back on. I made a thin steak and followed the instructions. I left the steak on 10 minutes longer than recommended and it was still raw in the middle. I ended up putting it in the microwave to cook it thoroughly. Certainly not what I expected. April 26, 2013
Love This Grill I purchased this grill last month after I was tired of fighting with my propane outdoor grill. I was looking for a grill that would give me grill marks and still keep the flavor in my food that was easy to clean and fast to heat up. I found it with this grill. It has 5 different setttings and a nice drip pan underneath. I use this ontop of my deep freezer and it doesn't get too hot that it burns the top of the freezer. This grill is amazing. I love it. When I couldnt use oil due to this diet I was on, I would just throw the meat on the hot grill and let it cook. My meat never stuck to the grill or anything. The grill is so easy to clean, I just throw the grill in some soapy water and wash with my dish towel. This is better than the George Foreman grill that would cook my seasoning away.

Almost 5 stars I'm happy with this grill so far. I considered one of the George Foreman grills and got this instead because once the thermostat is unplugged all the other components are dishwasher safe, including the grill surface. I also like how the drip tray is beneath the entire grilling surface rather than to one side. So far I have grilled boneless chicken breasts and steaks. Both remained juicy and didn't dry out even when fully cooked through. The first time I used it I "seasoned" the grill with a dab of olive oil on a paper towel and it didn't smoke at all. The second time I used cooking spray based on what I saw posted in some online forums and it smoked a lot... so I'll go back to the method Delonghi recommends in their manual. Note that this product has been updated so that the grill is fully washable/dishwasher safe. The product packaging has been updated but the manual still says not to immerse it in water or put it in the dishwasher. I contacted the company just to make sure and they verified it can be washed in the dishwasher after removing the thermostat. It comes out very clean and cleanup is super easy overall. No mess on the countertop at all. The cooking area is big enough for family cooking and the entire surface seems to heat evenly. After preheating the unit at max temperature for 5 minutes it is plenty hot and sears the meat nicely without sticking. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the plastic ring the handle fits into was broken. Since it's largely cosmetic I just fixed it with Super Glue... but it is a very thin piece of plastic and it seems others have had this problem. Otherwise it is very well constructed and I'm hoping to get many years of use. The only reason why I didn't grill more is because I hate the cleanup but now I'll be grilling all the time!
