    All purpose indoor griddle

    I had multiple George Foreman brand grills prior to purchasing this one, and I doubt I go back. The versatility of this product is great, and the variable cook temperatures prevents scorching food. The way the coils are inside makes for a more even cook and heat on the removable plates. The plates being removable and dishwasher safe makes cleanup really easy. I have one small complaint about this product. The lid will sometimes release like it should when wanting to lay it open, and it will stay flapped down when opening it to check on food making the heating element really close to your hand.

    Versatile, easy to clean, and makes great paninis

    I bought this based on the positive reviews here, and I'm very pleased with it. The plates are detachable and easy to clean. They're dishwasher safe, but I usually just gently scrub them under running water, or sometimes just wipe them with a damp cloth, even after cooking eggs. I mostly use it for paninis, and I'm amazed at how much more enjoyable sandwiches are compared to toasted bread. My 5-year old loves the grill marks on the sandwiches, and it's great how the cheese, avocado, and whatever else all melts together. I've had this for a couple of months and we use it several times a week. It's been great.

    Hamburgers tast great, easy cleanup

    This is a good product. It can cook food from both the top and bottom at the same time, or you can open it for twice the cooking area and flip the food while cooking it. The only problem was that a recipe for hamburgers was provided only for the open position so I didn't know if it was right to use the temperature for the open position when cooking closed, but I used that temperature and cooked for 2 1/2 minutes and the hamburgers tasted great. Since the cooking surfaces can be removed from the device and submersed, cleanup was easy.

    Grilling food with this is a breeze. It’s so easy to clean. The timer allows me to do other things & just come back to the food when the timers done. I just wish the tray that catches the grease or oil was bigger. It does tend to miss some spots so sometimes there’s grease under the machine. When opened flat, the griddle allows me to make pancakes for my family of 5 all at once without the first batch of pancakes getting cold. This does what it’s supposed to do so I’m happy with it.

    George Foreman look out

    My George Foreman died so I decided to purchase this device. Best investment ever! I love having two combinations of griddle/grill to choose from. Just swap the sides of the metal grill and you can cook anything. Even the temp control is perfect and the entire grill is heated evenly depending on what temp I choose. Only con is that when the timer hits zero, the device doesn't shut off. I recommend 100%!

    Best Griddle I've owned

    I've had several griddles and always run into small issues that kinda ruin it for me. However, so far, this has been the best griddle I've owned, not only is it great that I can adjust the temperature to what I like, but it the timer helps a lot. I also love the design, which allows you to cook/heat uneven foods better than traditional griddles or grills. Highly recommend it.

    Sandwich Maker

    Got this to make sandwiches like the ones I had in Italy. Although nothing really takes the place of a sandwich in Italy, this machine mimics how they were made and the same result. Simple to use and clean and I like how you can flip the pads and take them out and clean them. Good unit, I got the one with the digital readout instead of dials.

    Grill that's replaced my real one

    I love this item. I actually use it more than my real gas grill. Clean up is a breeze and it conveniently fits in my cabinet. The non-stick surfaces are great, but the griddle side seems to have 'marks' left on it despite using wooden (non-metal) spatula. Totally recommend it for use in a condo or house. Use it almost daily to replace any stove top cooking.

    Was apprehensive when buying this, but was proven right in buying this. Have enjoyed many a good hot pressed sandwiches - mostly veggie though! Has worked like a charm. Using is easy, cleaning is equally easy. Not done any flat face grilling so far. Use canola oil based spray on which works well with the hot surfaces. Would recommend for the current price point...

    This grill/griddle isn't anything crazy innovative or complex. The reason it gets 5 stars is because it works exactly as you would expect and hope for. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and produces good quality food. I have 0 complaints and would recommend this product to anyone looking for a product in this category.

    This Griddler, is the best quality I have seen thus far. It allows us to not only grill our sandwiches but also, use as a flat top Grill as well. The styling and ease of use of this Cuisinart are why we call it the best in category.

    This has been a great purchase, specially the digital display it’s really helpful, no guessing game in temperature any more. Two sided grill/ griddle plates are also really helpful reducing one appliance in our kitchen!

    I returned the item because does not do the job- the producers were to worried about making something the would make it easy to clean so therefore doesn’t stick, and they ended up making something that dehydrate the meet and doesn’t give that great grilled burn

    Had George Forman grills before but had to stay with the cooking turning the grill on and off to get it right. Not with this grill. I can control the temp and time and do something else while food cooks. Cooks frozen patties without a problem.

    Got this for my birthday. Absolutely love it! Made grilled panni's that night for dinner. Since then we have made eggs, more sandwich's, burgers, salmon, the list keeps growing. And with its stainless steel appearance it looks nice on the kitchen counter as well.

    This is literally the best thing ever! Ive had foreman grills in the past but this surpasses them all! Being able to choose between flat or grill lines. The digital readout and multiple heating options make it a completely versatile cooking/grilling machine!!

    I don't know how I lived without this for so long. I make pancakes on the griddle then have grilled countless items for lunch and dinner. I havnt used the press yet but the griddle and grill are great.

    We purchased this item for those times when we didn't want to fire up the gas grill. We have used it to cook chicken breasts, burgers, and vegetables. Also, we've cooked pancakes on it. In all cases, the griddle has worked well.

    Love this for grilling in the house and for making breakfast on the griddle. Love that it stores the grease in container under grill and and those plates are easy to remove and clean up.
