      Great Product

      Okay, let's see here. Lets get the great rating out of the way first. 5 stars all the way for the price. Now let's comment on some of the negative reviews by other customers 1."The surface works so well the food slides right off the grill." What does that tell you? This is a grill and pannini maker not a triple decker grilling machine. Is it possible you stacked it up to the moon and then tried to press down so hard it catapulted the friggin food out? Is it possible you could have taken advantage of the double grilling surface by opening the top so it folded back to create a second grilling surface? Is it possible when making a quadruple decker sandwich you could have grilled the sandwich halves in two stages? This is a $30 dollar convenience machine that works perfect for what it is designed for and not a commercial sandwich press. 2. "My sausages and hot dogs slide right off the grill when pressing." Is it possible you could have sliced them down the middle and made a great sandwich? Also please refer to the comment above. 3. "My grill is hard to clean and has chipped surfaces." Did anyone read the instruction manual? Is it possible you had the temperature too high and charred the food and had no light coating of oil to create a slick cooking surface? Let the unit cool completely, and clean with a wet towel and silicon brush that you can get on Amazon. Is it possible you were using harsh cleaning pads or metal utensils? 4. "The unit had no on off switch, you have to plug and unplug it." You cannot make this stuff up. Maybe you need to unplug your brain from the TV. 5. "The dial had no numbers on it so you cannot tell how high the temperature is." Did you read the manual and follow the recommendation? This is a $30 dollar machine that is designed to exercise your brain a little bit. You want a Fred Flintstone dial or a digital readout you spend more money.

      Quality Issues

      I bought this as a means to cook hamburger and chicken patties indoors, in the cleanest and healthiest way possible. The Oster Duraceramic Grill is very capable, heats fasts and evenly, and is a good value. However, after less than a week with my unit, the finishes began to stain and/or peel very rapidly. I purchased mine new and unopened from the store. Within the first 2 to 3 uses of cooking chicken, the ceramic finish on the top plate developed black stains that were permanent. No amount of elbow grease was going to clean that off. Additionally, some of the exterior black paint began to start bubbling and peeling after the 2nd use. The ceramic coating on the grill plates quickly showed wear, and in some spots, was removed to show the bare metal underneath. I was overall very disappointed with this grill, and I exchanged it for a slightly more expensive option within Best Buy's assortment. I sure hope that this next one will be more durable.

      Excellent Grill

      I first used a grill of this kind with in my friend's house so I decided to buy one. This grill is very easy to use and for the price it gets the job done! It comes with a time knob, which is very practical and it has indicator lights to let you know when its heating . The large hinge system makes it easy to grill sandwiches and thick steaks. It's easy to clean and it comes with a cup to collect the oil that drips on the side. I will give it a 9, from 1-10. It's affordable, easy to use, easy to clean, powerful enough to cook a steak and it's great for sandwiches. Now I base my purchases mostly on reviews so I want to help other people sharing my experience with this grill. I have had no problems with it and I use it almost every day since I bought it almost a year ago.

      Made a mess on my counter top...

      Their non stick coating works great however....... Now the dial to set you cooking temp has no numbers or any real way to show you what your cooking temp is.. So its easy to set the temp too high for what you are cooking And their non stick coating works too well, I made a grilled cheese for a test cook and because I was not sure how hot the cooking temp was, I had it too hot and it melted the cheese right out of the bread ( I also had the tilt feature set to drain off any extra melted butter) and then when the cheese melted out of the bread, it slid over the non-stick coating out the front of the panini press and all over my counter top. So if I were you, I would pass on this cooker

      I used this panini maker this week and it made a delicious grilled sandwich that I'm very happy with. My only complaint was with my thicker sandwiches it didn't shut flat and pushed the sandwich out the front. The front wasn't being grilled so I found a small cardboard medicine box and put in under the front of the machine and pushed the sandwiches back while they were on an decline. I'm going to find a piece of wood for underneath for next time, since the box crushed, but I shouldn't have to do that. Also, clean up is so easy. I'm overall quite pleased with my purchase.

      Upon receipt I was very excited to have something that would quickly grill meats vs frying them or waiting baking time since I work so much. It does the job but the design could have been a little bit better. If you place a brat, sausage, hot dog etc on this grill it will roll out...guaranteed. I have had some problem getting the mechanism to work that allows it to lie flat but was not going back to the store to exchange to potentially receive another with the same defect. This is common per the reviews I've seen. I will continue to use it without lying it down flat and it will meet my needs unless I decide to utilize the Geek Squad plan I purchased later in time.

      Great little grill and sandwich maker!

      I have enjoyed this appliance for making great sandwiches as well as steaks and shrimp wrapped in bacon! Its ceramic coating is tough and absolutely stick-free, so it's a breeze to clean after use. There's also no worry about it flaking off in your food as with some of the other non-stick coatings. It heats up extremely quickly, and with the rear legs extended slightly, grease drains easily from the food into the front channel of the lower plate and then into the receptacle positioned under the appliance. Great little grill for a small price!

      I have only used it to toast sandwiches and it does that job fine. The issue though is that it tends to push the sandwich out of the front. The top is very hot, but you have to try to get it to set level on top of your food or everything slides forward. The non-stick surface works great, but since it is so slippery it creates a problem until you get the hang of it. Overall, a good product, but the lid needs to have the ability to flex more than it does.
