I have used this grill several times now and I love it! Right off the bat, I'll tell you to invest in a meat thermometer, grilling rubs and sauces, and silicones tongs and spatulas to make your experience with this grill the very best! While it is completely different from the fire grilling of a gas or charcoal grill, it makes delicious meals. The benefits of using this type of this grill are many: non-stick, can be used outdoors or moved inside should it start to rain, clean design, super easy to clean and store, no open flame, doesn't take up alot of room on your deck/patio, holds alot of food, heats up quickly, is light and easy to move, so totally easy to assemble. Can also be removed from the stand and placed on a cart or table. The quality is decent and you can order replacement parts. A couple of tips that will improve your overall experience with this grill- I marinate the meat for several hours prior to grilling, using a smokey flavored marinade. When making burgers, I add a bit of dry rub to the beef. I also close the vent on the top of the grill cover to keep the meat moist, opening it at the very end of grilling and splash on a bit of bbq sauce. This allows for a more authentic grilled burger taste. Keeping the vent closed the whole time "poaches" the burgers- this happened the first time I used the grill. Although, I dressed them up a bit and no one even noticed. I've since metered the moisture with the vent and made some awesome burgers! I also made baby beef ribs and pork ribs ( the boneless strips) which I had marinated overnight. I put them on the superhot preheated grill to sear them, then put on the cover, and grilled them on lowest heat for 45 minutes. They were excellent! I also made chickens breast (boneless skinless), marinated with Charlie Biggs' apple bbq sauce. I used a meat thermometer for these, as I always tend to overcook chicken. I cooked to internal temp of 165. They were nice and moist! It takes a little practice to simulate that authentic grilled flavor on this type of grill, but it's totally worth it! if you need a grill that would be good for a single person or small family, an elderly person, a small balcony or deck, a mum with small children, or condo/apt. that prohibits open flame, this grill is great! Lastly, while my grill is very sturdy and stable on the single arm base, I have 2 large dogs that are like bulls in a china shop, so I plan to build a stocky table to use and store my grill. I bought a 12 foot 3 prong heavy-duty extension cord, which I store with the grill plug, coiled in the bottom portion of the grill, under the grilling plate. I have also purchased a round 22 inch smoker cover that fits perfectly. Hope this review is helpful in your decision to buy this grill. Enjoy!!!

Super easy assembly - no tools required. Everything goes together perfectly in 5 minutes. Have not cooked on it yet but will use in warmer weather.

Love this grill! It's everything I expected. Very easy to assemble which was important to me. The grilling area is large and I was able to grill for eight people. It heats quickly and the cleanup is easy. Would recommend to a friend.

Package Contents and Unboxing: The hotdog roller and glass cover come in two different boxes. The hotdog roller looks exactly as in the picture. The glass cover is different. In the picture on the website it has a glass front and stainless steel sides. What was shipped has the glass front, but the sides are glass instead of stainless steel, and there is a strip of stainless across the top.. Which is fine with me, but it is different than the picture for whatever reason. Also the glass cover comes with three pieces, front glass, and two sides glasses. Along with four plastic clips, several screws, and a strip of right-angle stainless that goes along the length of the top. Again, that's fine. But what caused some frustration is that there are no instructions whatsoever on how to put the glass cover together, also no picture of what it was suppose to look like once assembled. I searched around on the internet, and found a picture of the completed glass cover assembly, so I figured it out. But at least a one page instruction sheet with a finished picture would have been a big help, rather than just a box full of pieces with no instructions. But again, all's well that end's well, once I figured out how to put it together. You have to put the three pieces of glass into the four plastic clips, hold the stainless strip across the top, then screw in the screws between the plastic clip, then screw into the roller itself. You kind of almost need three hands to do this, or the help of another person to hold it all together while you screw in the screws. Kind of hard to do alone, but doable. Quality of the unit: The power cord is a standard computer power cord. Which is nice because it can be completely unplugged and removed from the unit for storage. Also nice because if you where to lose the cord or damage it, you could just replace it with a standard computer power cable. The unit is completely wrapped in Stainless Steel. The stainless steel seems very generous and fairly heavy gauge. The rollers are also a fairly heavy gauge stainless. So it seems like this will hold up well under long term use, washing, and high heat. Drip tray is a heavy gauge stainless steel that is folded up along all four corners and has a nice lip for a handled to slide out and remove to clean. The drip tray is nice and thick. I was expecting a thin and flimsy drip tray, but the tray is nice, thick, and heavy grade stainless that should last a long time. Glass is fairly thick. Once assembled, the glass cover seems like it will take a good hit and not break. The two temperature knobs are nice and heavy gauge, and feel like good quality when turning dials. The power switch feels nice and good quality when clicking on and off, and lights red when turned on. Operation and Functionality. The unit gets really, really, hot fast when you turn the dial to maximum. It cooks hotdogs literally in about two minutes on maximum. You can also turn it to low and slow cook over about a half hour. Or all the way down to keep warm. There are also two banks of heaters with the two separates controls, so you can quick cook on one set of rollers and move them over to keep warm on another. The two independent knobs allow for unlimited possibilities from anywhere between keep warm, to slow cook, to super fast cooking, or anything in-between. Once unplugged, the unit cools down pretty quick for quick breakdown and storage. Cleanup. The unit is easy to clean, just remove and wash the drip tray, and wipe down the rollers, glass cover, and sides with a damp sponge. Overall. Nicely made product. All visible metal is heavy gauge stainless steel. Fairly thick glass. Nice knobs and switch. Gets hot fast. Cooks hotdogs super fast, slow, or keep warm, or anywhere in-between. Easy clean up. This unit was purchased for personal use, but seems high grade enough for even party rental use or convenience store use. It looks like you could probably run this roller all day long, day after day, and it would hold up well. Highly recommended.

Finding a griddle that didn't have a 'heat ring' effect on everything I cooked was frustrating. This griddle was more expensive than the typical brands, but worth every penny. It heats evenly, is very heavy duty, the cord and control are a serious upgrade from other brands. It has leg extensions on the back legs for better grease drainage -- I am careful with these as they could be broken with a hard bump -- but it's a nice feature. The cooking surface is excellent but does require plastic utensils, as would any nonstick surface. I especially like the fact it's made in America!!!

Love this grill. It is versatile and efficient. As advertised it is easy to clean. We use it now for quick meals instead of our big, clumsy outdoor grill that requires propane. Wonderful for hot dogs, fish filets, grilled cheese sandwiches etc. I like to keep my counters clean, but leave this out because we use it nearly every day either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even my 10 yr old granddaughter can use it (carefully) to make sandwiches. I am moving that outdoor grill to a remote spot.

I am very satisfied with this appliance for a number of reasons. I like the shape as it fits well on my countertop and the clear glass lid is nice for viewing the progress of the food itself. The knobs are adequate as this type of cooking doesn't require highly specific temperature settings. It cleans quite easily and of course that is always a plus. I have tenants in my home since the economic downturn and they are quite satisfied with this item also. The size is suited to a variety of shapes of meat, fish and poultry items as well as is useful for making sauces and allowing the liquids to reduce readily. It is a practical purchase for the price and I would be satisfied with giving this item to my grown children, family and friends as a gift this holiday season.
