    I love cooking burgers and pork chops. The problem is cooking on the stove is always messy and takes longer because you can only do one side at a time. With this grill I can use it to cook both sides at once. I love how it changes modes to a griddle and cleanup is a breeze. The plates are removable unlike other grills and they can put the dishwasher. The plates are non-stick so you don't have to use too much grease or butter. It is very lightweight and easy to assemble. I store it in a cabinet to save counter space.

    I really thought thos would be perfect for my needs especially with the brand. However, the controls indicators are very basic and of no help when cooking specific foods like beef. The directions are no better. No specific information on cooking items like meat (rare, med rare etc) which mpst other brands have. Took a very long time to cook even hamburgers because when closing the lid to cook both sides it smashed all the juices out. If you do 1 side at a time and flip the food it slides all over. Grease is captured in a little cup, which you're suppose to get 2 and a brush to move it, both those were missing and grease ended up everywhere. Very very messy. Missing parts for how much this cost and brand really has me upset.

    Best as a griddle

    The DeLonghi grill is a 5 in 1 that looks great in the kitchen but is it as good as advertised? The grill looks great but there is more to it than looks. It is sturdy and well built. It doesn't weigh much There are three dials and are marked clearly. It comes with two sets of plates for either grilling or for use as a griddle. I tried to use it closed to grill chicken and it was beginning to leak from the rear despite having the grill closed with the drip cups properly put in place. Be sure to use a little bit of oil or butter to keep your meat from sticking to the grill surface. I find that grilling is best done open than closed in my experience. The griddle is good to use and the surface area is sufficient enough for making breakfast. Pancakes and bacon are great to make. I am just not a fan of the mess that is made from splashing everywhere. The removable plates are a plus. it makes it easier to clean up than say the foreman grill. The non stick plates seem solid but time will tell how they hold up. Be sure that your kitchen is well ventilated and that you are not using a lot of devices that uses a lot of electricity. I had to reset the power in my apartment as a result. Overall this grill/griddle is practical and has a lot to offer. It does a lot right but I am not sure why it is a 5 in 1. It can be used as a grill press or a griddle. In short it is great despite the few issues I found with it it is still a solid product. Well designed, can make breakfast lunch or dinner. It isn't difficult to clean.
