This single piece of equipment can replace a stovetop grill pan, panini pan and press, a counter top electric grill and, if you buy the extra plates, a waffle iron. It improves on most counter top grills by having temperature controls, easily removable machine washable plates and an integrated drip pan. So far I've cooked steaks, chicken breasts and spatch-cocked whole game hen. Everything was perfect. I would not attempt the letter on most countertop grills. The temp control permits the interior to be cooked through without a burnt exterior. While some reviewers have had issues with the accuracy of the temperature, I have had no such problems. The sole caveat would be the unit is level, not slanted like most counter top grills. Grease does not drain off readily. I just stick a cookbook or cutting board under the front to encourage draining if needed. This unit is the third refurb I've purchased from Overstock. All have been excellent, in like-new condition and have working perfectly. Recently i moved, selling most of my housewares, replacing the small appliances with refurbs from Overstock. There is a perceptible difference between my old "average-brand" appliances and my new refurbed but "better-brand" items from Overstock. Buying refurbished through Overstock has enabled me to stock my kitchen with much better equipment at a reasonable cost!
