    Same results indoors!

    This grill is phenomenal. It produces the same results as a regular grill—except of course, if you are looking for that charcoal flavor. It hardly emits any smoke. I just place it on my regular stove in my apartment so I can have the stove exhaust seep away any smoke that comes out--- even if there’s hardly any! The grill itself and the pan under is easy to clean and store. Maybe my only complaint is the sides where the heat emits from—the glass. It gets stained easily and it needs some TLC to keep it tidy. IT’s a must for everyone who loves to grill—especially those without outdoor areas to grill!

    The grill arrived on the same day that I came home with two ribeye steaks and a bunch of zucchini. My husband, always a sucker for a new gadget, immediately put the grill together (which means that it's so easy that a 2 year old could do it), and dropped the ribeyes and the zucchini on it and came up with a very flavorful meal. I don't know if I can say that I wouldn't have rather had the ribeyes charcoal grilled or pellet grilled, but I can say that if I can't use one of my outdoor grills, this one will do nicely. The zucchinis, by the way, came out well, too. And cleanup was a snap.

    I just plain love this grill! It is a talking piece when people see it sitting on my kitchen countertop. Living in the Midwest, it is marvelous to be able to grill foods and not have to brave the snow and cold. I have cooked everything from shrimp kabobs, chicken breasts, steaks, brats and grilled zucchini and squash and they have all turned out great! The grill uses infrared heat which is ideal when thinking about the dangers of propane gas or chargoal smoke. The design of the removable grill top and sliding drip pan makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze!

    Why did I not have this sooner? It is a great product and very easy to use. We used it to make pork chops and hot dogs. The whole family loved it. The grill is very easy to get going, wait 6 minutes, and you are ready. The food tasted great and it is very easy to clean. The packaging was great and the instructions while in several languages were straight forward. The best feature is it was virtually smokeless. An indoor grill that does not smoke up your house. We are so excited to make more food with this grill. If you grill then there should be no other choice. Very happy.

    Fantastic little grill. Pros: Smokeless Heats up quickly Juicier meat Produces grill marks – I was pleasantly surprised because my Infrared gas grill does not Easy clean up Cons: (for some people maybe) Small grilling space if you have a large family - (Figure about 3 burgers) Takes up a lot of room in pantry / difficult to store (I know they kind of contradict each other ;-) ) I have used it for hot dogs, chicken breasts, burgers and steak. Wisconsin winters won’t keep me from grilling ! I would definitely recommend this product

    Exceptional Cooking Experience

    I was a little skeptical about the claims of no smoke filling up my home/kitchen. I am now a believer. I've grilled a couple of times on this grill and was surprised by the way it cooked. I grilled hot dogs the other day and the dogs immediately started sizzling and had really nice grill marks. The food turned out delicious and fully cooked. Heating is fast and so is the cooking experience. Please be aware that the grill heating element is extremely bright and will light up the room. I highly recommend

    While we prefer outdoor grilling we cannot always do that due to the weather. We wanted to have the ability to grill in the winter. We saw an infomercial with this grill and we purchased it. It's nearly smokeless but still was a bit more smokey than I anticipated but still usable indoors. Cooks evenly on the top and bottom but the sides of meat (depending on thickness) do not always cook evenly with the rest of the cut. Better for thinner cuts. Overall great product.

    I got this grill bc I am tired of using a grill pan indoors and having all the smoke and my pace smelling like what I cooked for days. This grill cooks great with minimal if no smoke at all. Food tastes just as good as an outdoor propane tank. Cleaning is pretty easy however the interior reflectors turned color after using for the first time.

    Indoor grilling perfection

    I love to BBQ all summer long and have been known to BBQ even in the winter months. Going outside in the cold was never pleasant. THIS is the solution. Now I can grill all year long, there is minimal smoke that is produced, any grease falls into a pan below which reduces the likelihood for smoke AND makes cooking with the Avance a healthy choice. Easy fast clean up and great tasting grilled food all year long make this a must have in the kitchen.

    The downside -- the grill isn't that large so it take s more time if you have a large crew to cook for. But you can tell that from the size of the box. The product works as it is supposed to, basically has a setting to keep food warm and a setting to cook, so is easy to use. It heats up to cooking temperature quickly. The metal grill cleans easily. The rest of it needs to be wiped down each time you use it.

    I recently purchased this product because i wanted grilled food made indoors,without the hassle of using charcoal or propane. After reading the reviews many stated that the food tasted like food prepared on a gas grill. well that was false! the food dose not taste grilled at all its takes a long time to cook on this machine and there is a bright red light that dose not help you see, I returned this product with no hesitation .

    Cooking Indoors

    If you can not grill out year round this is a great indoor cooker that makes it close to outdoor grilling when needed. Heats up fast, you can barley see any smoke even if grilling a fattier meat. Cleaning the removable parts is very simple however cleaning the inside walls is impossible to make look new.

    This is really solid. It has that grilled taste with the comfort of cooking inside. I cooked chops and chicken and it cooked the insides to perfection. It had virtually no smoke. It was easy clean up as it has a bottom tray you can pull out and clean. This definitely has replaced my old Foreman grill. It cooks with infrared technology to perfection!

    PHILLIPS INDOOR ELECTRIC GRILL

    Great grill. Have used multiple times with fair to good success. Sometimes I think the meat isn't done (tenderness) to what it would be on a large grill, but when cooking for two people, kicking up large grill doesn't make sense. I would definitely buy again, but at this point in time 4 Stars is all I would rate this.

    First time using it out of the box upon warming up it made a zap noise. Shortly after the headlamp bulb blew. One side is still little taking double the time. Got pictures of both.

    I was afraid of smoke in my kitchen. There was none. The fish I cooked was cooked well, without drying it out. I like my food grilled. This is perfect for indoor grilling. This would make a great gift for anyone who loves grilling, with out the hassle of preheating the grill up and waiting.

    This is a good grill just as if you grilled outside. The plus is no messing with charcoal, not concerned if weather is or will turn bad. A pleasure preparing meal inside with that grilled outdoor taste. Highly recommend.

    Overall I like the product. Especially being able to grill inside when it’s cold outside. But I will forewarn it is not smokeless. Not even close. Both times I’ve used it, it set my smoke alarms off. So maybe consider grilling by an open door.

    We really enjoy grilling outdoors, but sometimes weather doesn't permit. This indoor grill works well; heats up quickly and cooks evenly. It cleans up nicely, however, it doesn't fit well in our cupboards. I'd recommend measuring your storage cupboard space carefully before purchasing.
