Power Supply/Temperature Control Malfunction
After using this grill moderately for 4 months the power supply/temperature control has started malfunctioning. The last time I used the grill it started heating up with the power supply set to off. I was concerned as I use this grill indoors and don't want a hot surface unattended/unexpected.

    9 out of ten needs a dripping device around the whole grill

      The only drawback is the metal handle on the lid. It’s gets pretty hot. Other than that, it’s an excellent product.

      Tho is my third George Forman grill and it is one of the smaller sizes. It is efficient and eye pleasing. I use them outdoors, they don’t last too long due to corrosion.

      Very easy to assemble
      The only thing you need is a Phillips screwdriver to attach the handle to the lid. Everything else snaps together. After unpacking, maybe 10 minutes.

        The Gill is awesome! It is light weight, easy to assemble, and easy to clean after use. It can be quickly removed from stand to set on a bench, or clean. I have really enjoyed cooking healthier food with this grill. I currently cook with this grill 5 days a week. It is extremely user friendly, and safer than charcoal or propane.

          Works great
          Bought this to replace a small Coleman gas grill. I LOVE IT! Cooked filet mignon and salmon and it was delicious. Even though it is electric, it leaves nice grill marks in the items cooked. Does not dry out the food, cooks evenly. I see some people complain about it wobbling. If you follow the instructions, the pedestal is solid. The only movement is where the top attachment meets the pedestal, and it is minimal and causes no issue with cooking. It actually makes removing the top piece for cleaning very easy. Nice small unit with simple features, compact and well made. Highly recommend!

            It really works!
            I was a little nervous about buying an electric grill but we live in a condo that prohibits gas or charcoal. We were so pleased with this purchase. It is easy to use and clean and best of all produces authentic grill flavor. We have grilled burgers, salmon, veggies, potatoes all with great results. A winner!!

            Cleaning and usage
            The grill plate is not removable to put in the dishwasher and the lid is not hinged, so you have to hold the lid while placing or turning the meat. Also, you could not reasonably prepare meat for 12 except hotdogs.

            Love, love, love!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As someone who doesn't have a lot of space, this grills perfect for our home! It's so compact, but perfect for use with a family of four. We don't sacrifice flavor or char by using this electric grill and it is so easy to clean! Very happy with this grill.

              Basically a large griddle
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very excited to use this grill as I am not very handy using a gas or charcoal grill. I tend to have issues with getting an even temperature. This grill was somewhat confusing to put together; the instructions were not very clear and informative. I was able to get it together with a little help of a friend but was still surprised that it was a bit wobbly and didn't feel as secure as I anticipated it would be. The grill controls are great and easy to use. The adjustable stand was also a great feature. It just feel short of my expectations as a grill. It really felt more like a large griddle. It did cook meat pretty evenly and was a large cooking surface. Taking the top part of the grill apart to clean was a little messy. It did not lift off so easiliy and was easier to just hose off in the yard rather than bringing it to the kitchen sink. Overall it was an ok product but just wasn't really what I expected.

                Greatest grill when it rains!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is legit like a real grill that you can use inside your home or outside! It does not smoke like a normal grill would because your not using propane and your not burning anything. I actually used the stand inside the house too even though it does have the option to remove the main grilling portion and set it on your counter. The only thing that’s a slight downside is the grease does fall around it so if your inside you’ll need to clean the floor or areas below the grill after cooking. The majority of the grease goes right down to the little box that collects the excess grease during cooking. The lid too is a little bothersome because it’s not attached and when you lift it to flip your items you need a surface to set it down but it’s really not a huge deal as a table or chair works perfectly for that. The cleaning process is a breeze I just use paper towel and wipe all the standing grease down the little hole to the compartment and then scrape that into a tin foil bow and toss it in the trash. Then just wipe the surface down with the paper towel and throw them away, also I clean the floor around it if I used it inside. All around I love this it perfect for my family to use especially if it’s raining and it can cook a large variety of foods from the basics burgers and hot dogs to bacon and bologna!
