      There a very minimal instruction manual with it. I bought a Hamilton Beach indoor searing grill (author,Kalinda Jenson), but most the recipes called for “smoking”, which was not mentioned in the inadequate directions. I contacted customer service and they replied, you don’t have a recipe booklet and the few on line recipes do not mention “smoking”. Needless to say, I am not satisfied with the grill.

      I bought one in Florida, absolutely enjoy using it indoors. When I got back to Michigan I tried to order another one from you. For some reason you wouldn't accept my password, which was the same exact one I used in Florida. So I found another source and now am enjoying one at both of my condos..

      Definite Must have!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love my new Hamilton Beach Indoor Searing grill with lid. I love being able to make hamburgers indoors without all the smoke. I no longer have to wait for weekends to BBQ outdoors and enjoy a great burger. Thw Indoor Searing grill is amazing, easy to use, just take it out of box! The burgers I made came out perfect, great color, juicy and quickly. I even made pork chops, veggies and really quick, quick lunch or dinner. Highly recommend one for every household.

        A great option for an indoor grill
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sturdy and well constructed. Allows for a larger amount of food to be cooked at one time. Very easy to assemble and to disassemble and clean. I noticed it did not cook as hot or fast as other indoor grill products I have used however it gives a more even and better quality grill cook. Very low amount of smoke when cooking a variety of food items.

          Very Nice Indoor Grill.
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I gave this grill a good test. I cooked steaks, burgers, pork chops and chicken thighs. I tried a steak first. First thing I noticed was it had the smell of an outdoor grill. Didn't smoke. When I flipped the steak it had nice grill marks. The handle stayed cool. Easy to clean. Everything that I grilled cooked up nice. I will definitely be using this grill quite a bit.

            Easy to Use, Even cooking
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the chance to use the Hamilton beach Indoor Searing grill with lid several times. The searing feature works really good. To sear food all you have to do is set the dial to sear and let it warm up. The indicator light will turn green when the grill is ready. When you are ready to complete the cooking process turn the dial to desired temperature and finish cooking. The grill cooks evenly regardless of where you place your food on the grill.. Not something I can say when using an outdoor grill. With a pull out drip pan and easy to remove grate clean up is easy .

              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the searing feature of this appliance. Chicken cooked perfectly with just the right amount of crisp. Pork chops were juicy with a perfect sear. The grill taste without the charcoal. Easy to use. Easy to clean.

                My favorite new appliance!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After using this for several items including grilling sandwiches, steaks and ham slices I can say with all sincerity that everything about the cooked items has been exactly as good as using an outdoor gas grill except nothing gets dried out and takes much less cooking time. The times given in the manual that is included are a good starting point but watching the food fairly closely and adjusting the times to the thickness and type of food you are cooking makes a world of difference. I have however found that learning to use this grill has a very easy learning curve. Having the lid and the see through top makes a world of difference from the old flat coverless electric grill I used in the past. Food stays moist and cooks faster. The indicator lights let you know when you are getting the full use of your heat and not opening the top often makes a big difference in the amount of time required. My old grill used to smoke like crazy but with this one I have started adding a couple of Tablespoons of water to the drip tray and have had no smoking at all even when grilling NY strip steaks. Cleaning the unit is a breeze. I sink wash the grill rack, drip tray and cover and just wipe down the frame. Nothing seems to stick to the grill and it's a dream to wash. I'm sure the grill gets hot but I use it on my coil burner stovetop and have had no problems with it damaging anything there or on my counter top when it was used on it. I live in a household of one and have gotten rid of my outdoor grill because I got tired of all the maintenance and tank refills it always needed for the few good weather months that I could use it. This grill will suit me not just for my one person meals but for my entertaining needs when the world gets back to normal. My grandsons especially are going to be thrilled that we can have grilled hotdogs anytime we want them! I trust the Hamilton Beach brand to be safe and long lasting and I'm thrilled to have been given the opportunity to test this grill. It has a permanent spot on my counter and will more than make up for the space it uses.

                  This Was Amazing!!!!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using my Hamilton Beach Indoor Searing grill with lid for a few weeks now and I must say it's absolutely amazing. I live in Maryland , so of course it gets cold here in the winter time. I'm so glad that I had the chance to use this. I love grilled foods and this indoor grill lets me able to enjoy that in the not so warm months as well.It was just like using a grill outside without all the smoke. :)

                    Perfect indoor grill!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This indoor grill is amazing. I was worried that there would be too much smoke in the house with it but there was absolutely none! Very good size. I have fit 4 burgers at one time on it. The best part is how easy it is to clean. Only takes a couple minutes. It cooks the perfect steak. Unless I am having a big group over I have no reason to start up the grill anymore. Drip tray catches everything and I even get the seat marks on the steaks!

                      Seems cheaply made
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Not thrilled with this grill. The tray is flimsy and does not stay closed. I have to keep checking to make sure it is not dripping on the counter. The lid also feels like cheap plastic. Mine also had some sharp edges. The element works well. I have done steaks and sausage. It sears nicely. But I have to work on timing, my steaks were more done than I like and the sausages were not cooked through. It is the perfect size for a meal for 3 or 4.

                        Perfect for indoor grilling!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm thrilled with this indoor searing grill! I love to grill, but since we moved to our townhouse a few years ago, I had almost stopped grilling because of the inconvenience of having to go downstairs to get to the outdoor grill. I missed it so much, so I had to try an indoor grill. I'm so glad that I decided on this one! It's perfect for our little family of 3. There's plenty of room for 3 steaks or chicken breasts and veggies too. It makes it quick and easy to grill up some healthy and delicious meals, and I love the grill marks! I was initially concerned that it would be smoky, but that hasn't been an issue at all. This is the perfect solution for grilling when you just don't want to go outside. It's super easy to use and easy to clean (personally I put everything in the dishwasher, so that's a huge plus that it's dishwasher safe). I highly recommend this indoor grill!

                          My new fav
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the fact that I don't have to go out and buy propane just to fix a meal for a few people rather then a large bunch. It super easy to use even if you are the one like me that says " I cant grill" this one is literally simple. You have the indicator that tells you when its ready and you just cook your foos to your liking. I love that it cooks multiple things at once and just as good as a backyard grill. And you can grill all year round and not in the cold. It very easy to clean and it comes apart and dishwasher safer. This is my new FAVORITE kitchen gadget and I use it every chance I can now.

                            Gourmet Grilled Meals
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It's fun to grill meats, fruits and vegetables on the Hamilton Beach Indoor Searing Grill with a lid. I grilled chicken and pineapple rings for chicken teriyaki, pork chops with a maple syrup and soy sauce glaze, hamburgers and much more. My husband said the meats tastes like restaurant quality and were more delicious than when cooked other ways. I love the sear setting on the dial which locks in the meat's delicious flavor and juiciness. I live in a snowy area so it is great to have an indoor grill when it's too cold and snowy outside to grill. This indoor grill is a great addition to anyones trove of cooking tools to create delicious gourmet meals.

                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I honestly love this grill. It is perfect for small spaces. It works great and does a great job searing. It comes with a temperature indicator on the dial which guides me whenever I’m using it. The lid closes very securely and retains heat for that perfect sear. The food tasted very good and was ended/juicy also. I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for an effective portable indoor grill.

                                Perfect of indoor grilling
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a really nice compact grill for use indoors! We have tried several indoor grills over the years and can say that this grill is a keeper. I love the convenient lid attached to the grill. We skewer kebabs quite a bit and have used this grill to cook them. Same great taste as you would expect from an outdoor grill. It’s easy to clean and easy to store. Highly recommend if you’re in need of a grill, but not interested in outdoor grilling equipment.

                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve cooked a steak and hamburgers on the grill. It works great and clean up is easy. It’s a good substitute to a outside grill during the cooler months. I would recommend to someone that wants to grill and lives in an apartment.

                                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was going to grill outside but it rained the day I received it. So we just grilled indoors and the food tasted like it was grilled outdoors. It take a little bit longer to cook, but I didn't have to keep walking outside to check on the food.
