    Works well, a little awkward

    Posted

    I’ve had this unit for a few months mostly making panini and pancakes and it has worked well, certainly better than the Griddler that came before it which I returned. The ceramic plates truly are non-stick and easy to clean and I’ve had no problem with the finish flaking. Unlike the Griddler the plates heat evenly across the surface, the temperature doesn’t fluctuate too much over time, and the top and bottom plates are always at the same temperature. I’ve only done one round of truly high-heat cooking and it easily got hot enough to put a nice sear on a lamb steak. The biggest con for this unit is that there’s a spring which makes it awkward to rotate the top plate so it lies flat on, say, a panino. I have to grab a spatula and use it to pull down on the front of the top with one hand while using my other hand to lower the top onto the food. Once it’s on the food it stays flat. It’s not a hard trick to master but it’s odd that it’s necessary. My other nit is that the cord and the hinge release button are on the same side. When making pancakes I want to lay the two halves out flat so I rotate the grill until the cord is pointing toward the wall outlet. But that means the hinge release button is also pointing away from me. After I preheat I have to reach across the hot unit to use the button and open it flat. Clearly not a deal breaker but it’s an odd design choice. These minor inconveniences aside I’m happy with this grill for the low temperature (350 degree) cooking that I do on a weekly basis.

    Grill plate finish faulty

    Grill works great and is convenient but after only a few uses the finish is coming off all four grill plates. The grill plates have been maintained according to manufacturer specifications i.e. wash by hand after each use, use only non metal utensils when cooking, etc. For the price of the product this is unacceptable.

    I really like the way I can control the temperature on this Calphalon electric grill. I also like that I can remove the grill plates and wash them. The grill cooks the food evenly and well and the non-stick coating really works.

    Great build quality, lots of flexibility, however the owner's manual lacks any useful information about recommended settings/recipes.

    I love this , I think it's better than a George Foreman. You can make pancakes, grill burgers, chicken, steak and it's so easy to clean.

    This is my wife's "toy" and she really likes it. She made some toasted sandwiches that were restaurant quality.

    Incredibly cheaply made. I was hoping to replace my Cusinart, but not with this one.

    I’ve had the foreman grill. This by far tops it off. Best grill in market.
