I just used this grill today for the 1st time. I absolutely LOVE!LOVE! it. I do food demos in a grocery store, Had bacon, today and brats tomorrow. Took me awhile to adjust the temperature. Easy to clean, smokes a little, but what grill don't smoke when you grill. I would buy this grill again anytime. Little spendy, but there again, you get what you pay for. Thank You ZOJIRUSHI for a great product. Thumbs up 100%.
