    I have only used one other type of indoor grill - George Foreman. This grill is so much better - much easier to clean, and it seems to cook very evenly - my Foreman had issues with that. I highly recommend this grill if you want to grill indoors :) I still prefer an outdoor charcoal grill for taste, but this is healthier and the best choice for indoors.

    The DeLonghi All-Day Grill System is a pleasant surprise. It is versatile, easy to use, and easy to clean up, making it a home run in our kitchen. The flexibility with the precise temperature controls allow me to use the grill for a lot of different cooking situations. I so far have successfully grilled perfect steaks, pressed paninis, grilled vegetables, and cooked bacon all with ease. The fact that the plates are removable allow for easy clean up. I also especially love that the grill can be left open and you have 2 full plates of grill space. To me that is the Major selling point, because it allows twice the grilling space. I would recommend this grill to anyone who's looking for an in home grill. It fits the bill and then some.

    Our gas grill just went out recently, so I'm thrilled to try out this electric grill. It has nice design, it looks elegant. Super easy to set up and operate, and clean up is a breeze. The only downside when grilling steak with bone in, due to different height of the cut, some parts of the meat will be burned more.

    This Is The Best Indoor Grill I Ever Had

    This grill is so useful. I made breakfast with it for my father and later that day I switched plates to make some BBQ. I was looking for an outdoor grill, but this works very good in the meantime. I used to use the indoor grill from the boxer for many years, but this grill is far superior. It is also very easy to clean.

    This is an amazing grill that is hugely convenient for cooking in the house in a healthy way. Similar to other grills of the same style, but with much better controls and a much nicer look for the house. The grill goes all the way up to 450 degrees and has the option of opening up completely to function similar to a BBQ and also has the ability to sear your meat. Easy to clean, easy to use, and easy to assemble and disassemble. This is the grill to get for your house.

    This is one of the rare times I buy something with NO downside. Being able to set a precise temperature to cook with is a game changer. I wish I had gotten the one with the Waffle griddles included as well, suggestion to future buyers. This appliance does just about everything, fry eggs, make grilled cheese sandwiches, awesome pancakes, grill steaks, seafood, and hamburgers. All with out scorching, burning, unless you want a well done steak, or overcooking. Not having to guess what the cooking temperature is makes a huge difference with everything you cook. It also works in many different configurations. Full flat grill, grill & griddle, griddle press, grill press, grill & griddle press, full flat griddle. This appliance does it all perfectly. Clean up is a breeze, you can put the cooking surfaces in the dishwasher, if you really want to, however, everything is real easy to clean in the sink. Because all the cooking surfaces are non stick, I recommend sink clean up because dishwasher chemicals tend to wear the cooking surfaces over time. Least that has been my experience with all other non stick products, so I clean them in the sink. Just don't do like I did and order the one with out the waffle plates, I will be ordering those from DeLongi. Final thought, this truly is an ALL DAY use appliance, I never put mine away, that would be tragic! It is extremely well built, tough, and fully capable of handling breakfast, lunch, and dinner, most of the time I just wipe off the plates and wash them at the end of the day.

    I am in the state of exuberance. After going through several indoor grills, finally, I've discovered the one which can fulfill my needs for the gourmet cooking to the fullest potential. It has separate heating elements integrated into the plates. Temperatures can be controlled by separate dials before or during the grilling. Digital display of every aspect of operation. Easily disassembled for cleaning. And, aesthetically speaking, a visual masterpiece.

    I wanted to upgrade from that popular electric grill and I found this all day electric grill. So far I cooked burgers,chicken, paninis and some vegetables and it's been great. The plates are easy to clean since they are removable. I like th way that you can open up the top and make it double space to grill a lot of food and you can adjusted at different tempetures. This grill is made heavy duty so it's kind of heavy and hard to storage in your kitchen, so you have to find a space in your kitchen counter. The only problem I have was that the grease tray didn't captured most of the liquid on the back when I grilled meat but nothing major, most of it when inside the tray. The only thing this grill needs is a stand so you can use it outside like in the porch or patio to have an outdoor cook out.

    Unlike any other appliance that I've ever bought, I use this daily, many days twice a day. Works great a a grill, as a griddle, makes great toast in a minute or less! Expect some smoke when grilling steaks, etc. But well worth dealing with the smoke! Heats up quickly, easy to clean. Comes with 2 grill plates and 2 griddle plates. Waffle plates also available. More expensive than many other similar items, but well worth it!

    This Grill Does It All

    Got my DeLonghi Livenza All-Day Electric Grill just in time as my griddle was on its last legs and the weather has been so awful for grilling outside. We put the grill to work right out of the box. Speaking of which, it's really well packaged and needs very little assembly to get it ready for use. My wife and I are huge fans of pancakes and this grill couldn't have been any easier to use. Set the digital temp and you're off an cooking. The controls are simple and easy to read and offer temperature select, timer, etc. The temperature was perfectly dispersed across the cooking plate and did a fantastic job on our pancakes. With the removable cooking plates, cleanup is a snap. Simply wait for it to cool down and then take the griddle plate off and wash, no fuss. . unlike trying to clean a griddle. There is plenty of space for cooking by folding the unit open and using both the top and bottom as cooking surfaces. Next, we used it for grilling burgers inside as it's been rainy and windy outside. Set it up under our stove hood and put the grilling plate in place. We were really surprised as how evenly it cooked our burgers and pretty quickly as well. Again, cleanup was a breeze since the grill plate can be removed and washed separately. Haven't had a chance to make paninis or try the cookbook app as of yet, but based on our initial experience with this grill I'm sure we'll be using it again this week! Pros: Easy to read and use controls Multiple cooking tops for different foods Removable cook plates for easy cleanup Top-of-the-line construction and finishings Cons: Haven't found any as of yet! If you're looking for a very versatile and compact electric cooker, look no further than the DeLonghi Livenza All-Day Electric Grill!

    Great grill. Heats evenly, great product. I found it a little heavier than I thought it would be. I thought the cord could have been longer. I'm not a big cooker, so I only tired it a few times so far. Cleaning was easy. This is a very nice looking appliance, and looks great in the kitchen. I will use it more this summer. I love grilling over frying any day.

    I have been using a popular and well-known brand of electric grill for many years and enjoy the convenience of it. I viewed this DeLonghi as a significant upgrade, as I can now set a specific temperature with the digital display, giving me more freedom on my dinner preparations. Since getting this grill I have cooked chicken and burgers. Both turned out great and cooked thoroughly and evenly. Clean-up was very simple as well. The plates are dishwasher safe and a tool is provided to scrape them. I was pleased with the size of this device, as I was able to cook all of our dinner at once due to plenty of surface area on the grill. I haven't tried pancakes yet but look forward to making them on the griddle plate! I love this thing and recommend it to others for their indoor grilling needs.

    Have tried several different brands. Had returned promptly. This one is the permanent fixture in my kitchen. If you're serious about gourmet cooking - don't have to go any farther! Each plate is heated individually to the desired temperature which can be changed at any given moment by simply turning the dials. Digital display of all functions. Alerts. Easy disassembled for cleaning And aesthetically speaking, a visual masterpiece! Will get an undivided attention from everyone. The brand name, DeLonghi, is very well known for it's high quality appliances. This grill is in full harmony with my cappuccino and coffee grinder machines by the same company.

    Awesome grill and griddle in one

    I really enjoyed using this grill. It has so many features that I used this to replace my old griddle. How I used it so far For breakfast I used the flat plates and opened the hinge so that I could cook pancakes (see photo). I was able to easily fit 3 pancakes (1/4 cup batter) on each plate. Both plates were set to 300? F and the griddle signaled when each plate reached the desired temperature. I noticed that the pancakes cooked at the same rate, no matter where it was located on either plate. For dinner, I used the grill plates to make steak fajitas. I set the grill to 450? F and cooked both sides at once, with the lid closed, in under 6 minutes. The steak was expertly well done, with picture-perfect sear marks. The grill did steam quite a bit, so I would recommend cooking under a vented hood or open space. We also plan to purchase the sold-separately waffle plates, although due to the design we wouldn't be able to make the traditional flipped Belgian waffle. App DeLonghi has a very nice app that gives ideas for the proper settings and cook times for many different kinds of foods. There are even recipes and preparation instructions, but I noticed the INGREDIENTS tab only has the picture of the food with a cook time and serving size. I assume DeLonghi plans to update the app soon to include the actual ingredients. Cleanup The drip pan did a great job of catching the dripping from both plates. The plates were very easy to wash, since the plates have a Teflon coating. I did notice some splatter on the controls, but it was easily wiped off with a damp washcloth. To summarize, I highly recommend this grill. It cooks evenly, is easy to clean up, and is very versatile. Really the only con I can think of is that the waffle plates weren't included on this model and that they aren't Belgian waffles.

    All around grill

    First things first...this unit is an absolute beast. By that, I mean it is HEAVY. Definitely not something that feels cheaply made. The styling is great and blends well with my other counter-top appliances. At first I opted to try to use this without downloading the app, but some of the settings can get a bit confusing, so I downloaded the app and things went swimmingly from there. The warm up time is very acceptable and there is a wide range of temperature settings depending on what you're cooking. I've been very impressed with the versatility of this machine as it can go from a griddle for pancakes to a press grill for burgers to a broiler for whatever within a matter of seconds. The dishwasher-safe cooking grates pop in and out easily, making clean up a breeze. The included "cleaning tool" is pretty well a waste and it seems like it would melt if it came close to anything hot, so I've opted against using it. Take some time to read the manual, get the app, and familiarize yourself with the settings and you'll find yourself looking for reasons to cook on this thing. I'm contemplating ordering the waffle plates to round out the potential uses for it. --I knocked a star off for the learning curve, the fact that an app is nearly mandatory to understand all the features and the sheer heft of this unit which makes it less than portable, especially since I plan to keep it in a cabinet when not in use rather than sitting out all the time.

    Pros on this unit: Love the choice of grill plates and the fact they are dishwasher safe. A lot can be cooked at one time on this unit. Does cook well once you figure it out. Cons on this unit: You need to make sure you have the counter space for this unit . Fully opened it takes up a large area. Unless you are keeping it on counter all the time it will need a generous space to store it. Takes a while to study the instructions and you need to . A bit confusing and instructions aren't the clearest. More pages were given to Spanish instructions than English. All in all ,it's a fine unit, well constructed, easy to clean. One thing I would have to liked to see is that there was less plastic. The knobs and buttons are all very cheap feeling and are made of plastic. For the price, and the fact there is stainless steel on the unit, I would have expected that the buttons and knobs be stainless as well as it would give off a better feel of reliability and durability. Other than that really the only real negative is the space as mentioned above.

    This grill is really well made. It heats up very fast. It got to 400 degrees in about 4 or so minutes. The app that you use with it came in handy when we used it and cooked our steaks pretty much the way we wanted. The sear function is neat, it brings the heat way up to sear whatever you put on it. You can control the heat on the top as well as the bottom so if you are unable to get a crispy crust on your pizza, this might work for you. You can put the plates in the dishwasher making for an easy cleanup. A couple things I didn't like. The drip tray is in the rear of the grill, kind of a silly thing to do right? The cord is kind of short. The cost of this grill is on the high end for sure even though it is well made and a quality piece. This doesn't come with the waffle plates and for what it costs, shouldn't it? It's also big, so it takes up a large amount of counter space so take that into consideration. Other than those things I can recommend this to others. If you live in a small spot with no grill or if your a traveler and stay in places where a full size grill is not available, this is for you.

    Things like this have been around for a while, but this unit packs a lot of features that I have personally never had and I really like. The removable grills that are dishwasher safe are great for quick cleanup, for example. For actual cooking, I like that it opens completely flat if you don't need to cook on both sides. Of course, for two sided cooking, it literally cuts your time in half. You can "grill" things with it or just make some Paninis. My wife loves broiling things for a minute or two at the end of cooking and with other indoor grills we've had, that wasn't an option. But this has a broil option. I haven't tried it, but you can even make pizza on this. And the inclusion of the flat places means that you can make pancakes or anything else that you want that needs a flat surface. The app companion is a great thing as well. Don't forget about it. It's not life changing, but is helpful. Also, think about using this in different situations. If you have power, you can take this camping, or to the park and not use community grills. I would highly recommend this.

    Large, sturdy multipurpose grill

    Pros Plenty of grilling space Includes flat and griddle cooking surfaces Can make waffles with optional accessory Versatile Easy to read digital screen Includes timer function Easy dishwasher cleanup Top and bottom cook surfaces are controlled separately Includes companion app Premium appearance Cons Actual temperature does not match set temperature Heating is very uneven Dials didn't feel smooth for such an expensive product Steep slope on for drippings causes items such as eggs to run Drip tray removal is in back Massive size limits kitchen placement in normal kitchens Only includes temperature settings and no Low/Medium/High High amp draw might require using a separate circuit The Delonghi Livenza is a very large multipurpose grill. The grill surfaces have an integrated heating element. The claim is by offering direct heating of the cooking surface you get even distribution of heat. With the included flat grill and griddle and optional waffle plates you have the option to cook nearly anything without the need of a stove or oven. In fact, the Livenza can even serve as an open broiler. A timer and sear function are also included to round out the package. There are only temperature settings and no options for Low, Medium, and High so some knowledge of cooking temperatures or using the companion app are recommended. Cleanup should be easy since the plates are dishwasher safe and the drip tray catches everything else. The front display has a slight angle meaning food will likely need to be cleaned off the front but the task is not difficult. Strangely, the drip tray must be removed via a back slot. With such a large grill, a side or front removal of the tray would be preferred. If you intend to purchase the Livenza, keep in mind this is a very large grill. You could be forgiven for mistaking this for a commercial grade restaurant grill it is that large. It looks and feels the part in every way. It feels very sturdy as if it was intended for frequent use. Digging deeper into the grill, the commercial type nature continues where each heating surface is controlled separately and a bright, easy to read display shows the set temperature of each heating surface. Unfortunately, the temperature set cannot be trusted but more on that later. The knobs feel sturdy except that turning them feels rough, almost as if there is sand stuck behind the knob. This takes away from the premium feel a bit. After continued use the rough feeling lessoned. One can only hope this is because they are tight from the factory for extended use and require a breaking in period. Carrying on with the more commercial theme, with this grill open you have as much surface area as most residential cooktops except nearly all is useable. When cooking large amounts of greasy food, such as bacon, enough bacon grease is vaporized where you may want to consider using it under your vent hoot if you don't have tall ceilings. Because of the size of the grill, if you intend to use both surfaces at the same time while having another appliance running, such as a small toaster oven, you will need more than a 15-amp circuit. Probably the boldest claim is that the Livenza solves the largest problem every cooking surface or grill and that's uneven heat. Unfortunately, during testing it could not live up to this claim. Temperatures were verified with a thermal gun to very as much as 80 degrees Fahrenheit from one area of the plate to another. This can the difference between overly runny eggs and dry eggs. Not only are surface temperatures inconsistent, they are regularly higher than set. When the temperature was set to 400 degrees, a check with a thermal fun verified temps of 436-448. A setting of 350 yielded 398 degrees. This does not prevent the Livenza from being a competent cooking tool, only less than accurate or consistent. If you are in the market for a very large multipurpose grill for larger meals and value a sturdy build quality and commercial look this grill may be for you. Just be ready for temperature inconsistencies.
