    This is ideal for the wife who does not spend a lot of time outside! Lol... my wife loves it because she is able to grill foods in doors away from bugs and heat. It is fast to heat up to proper heat for grilling all types of food. Leaves perfect grill marks for an authentic grilled dish and leaves little to no mess to clean up afterwards. The grill itself has a non stick surface so food does not stick and makes it an easy to clean item in the sink or dishwasher. The drip pan slides out easy and is also easy to clean. While cooking there is little to no smoke and foods are cooked to perfection with an authentic juicy grill taste. We love it for those days when grilling outside is not an option. Great buy

    This is a good grill where you may live in an apartment or it may be too hot to grill. Pro: No smoke Indoor grilling Easy clean up Cons: Light is bright Does not grill exactly the same as gas but close. Uses 1800w of power

    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.

    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.

    Great for indoor use. Easy clean up and easy to use. Actually is smokeless. Not too bulky so storage is terrible.

    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.

    This indoor grill works wonderfully, tested it out on some tasty Wisconsin beer brats and some chicken brats! The only thing missing is one of the best features being an indoor grill, NO SMOKE...which does mean no smokey, charcoal flavor. This is most definitely a plus as there is no excessive smoke while grilling inside, a common issue on many other indoor grills & cooking devices. There is a little bit of grease splatter but it is so easy to clean, you won't care after the first time using it! Highly recommended, very user friendly, the infrared light are a lot to take in but instantly ready!

    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.

    I've had the Philips Avance grill for a few days now and really like it so far. Assemble the parts (a snap), wash the grill, and it's ready to use. Because there are is no flame or hot coals to be concerned about, safety issues are minimized. To cook, use warming setting for a couple of minutes, switch it to "on," then load it up with whatever you plan to grill. I put 4 pork loin "steaks" on, and there was room to spare on the grill surface. Following the suggested cook time shown in the accompanying instructions, the result was very tasty. The infrared cooking process works well. Smoke was minimal, and any drip was caught in the pan (easily removable for cleaning) underneath the grill. Yes, the food may not have the same grilled flavor as from an outdoor grill, but it's the very best of any other electric grills I've tried. Clean up is easy, though not quite as easy as the promo materials imply. I expect to get a lot of use out of this very nice grill, and the only problem that I've so far is figuring out where I will store it when it's not in use. I'd definitely recommend the Philips Avance grill.

    Excellent Year Round Grill

    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!

    A true indoor grilling experience

    I am very impressed with the Phillips Avance Collection Indoor Grill and readily recommend it to anyone looking for a great answer to getting the true outdoor grilling experience indoors with minimal smoke. This unit represents a significant improvement over pther electric stand-alone and stove-top grill pans I've tried in the past. It separates grease from the food on the grill into a grease tray like other clamshell grills on the market, but with the experience similar to cooking on an open grill. It is very easy to clean - even more so with a quick spritz of cooking spray on the grill and drip tray before starting your cooking session - and easy to use. This is a perfect solution to grilling indoors that I am confident will become a key appliance in any kitchen. It is no wonder that it is already winning recognition for its design excellence!

    It lives up its claim of 'virtually no smoke'

    This is a nice indoor grill. It's simple to set up and simple to use; I had it out of the box and in use in about 15 minutes. After an initial cleaning of the removable grid, and a quick look through the manual, I decided to see what it would do with some porkchops. At this point I'll mention that the warning in the manual about not looking into the lamps is actually a bit understated. I've never had a grill that uses infrared lamps, so when I turned the grill on, even though I wasn't looking at the lamps directly, the lamps were still so bright I wasn't sure how I was supposed to 'not look at them' while flipping anything that was on the grill. I wound up turning the whole grill sideways, so I was at the end with the power switch instead of in front of it; in that position, the light coming from the lamps was much more subdued. Once the grill heated up (about 7 minutes) I put the porkchops on. I could immediately tell that this was going to be a much different experience from fixing meat on the stove-top; the light from the lamps made the 1/2" porkchops translucent, hopefully meaning they were being cooked evenly all the way through. In about 12-14 munites, the porkchops were done and absolutely perfect. I had marinated the porkcops the night before, so I thought that might add more smoke to the grilling process, but throughout the entire grilling, there was virtually NO smoke. After dinner, the grill was cool enough to clean. Cleanup was quick and easy; I cleaned the grid and the drip tray with soap and water, taking about 5 minutes, and the main unit had almost nothing on it, so a simple wipe with a damp cloth was all that it took to get the unit ready to store until next time. I'm extremely pleased with this grill. It's very simple to use, grills to perfection, cleans up in minutes, and lives up to its claim of 'virtually no smoke'. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a 'grilling experience' while still being in your kitchen.

    Smokeless is Legit! Lets me grill year round!

    I was dubious at first with the claims of being smokeless and for use indoors, but they're not kidding! It took a little getting used to the fact that I couldn't adjust the temperature - once I Started to treat it like a medium-high gas grill all the time, my results improved. That means you have to be careful what kind of liquids/butter/oils end up on the grilling surfaces (that might negate the smokeless part) but the end result is so similar to a bbq grilled meal it's stunning. I wish the grill size was just a little larger, but the size is perfectly suited to storage and being an indoor appliance. Between the removable surface and the lower drip tray, Philips makes this thing easy to clean. I foresee using this to have grilled food well into the winter months when I cannot/will not use my outdoor gas grill.

    This grill is fantastic - it really works as advertised, and does a great job no matter what food you are grilling! I do have a standard propane grill for use outside, but was looking forward to testing out this new Philips Indoor Electric Grill. I was hoping it would work well, so that I'd be able to grill in winter, or in bad weather. The grill exceeded my expectations. We have grilled pork chops and chicken thighs, and they both cooked up nice and even, with perfect grill marks. We also grilled up some pineapple, and that also came out very nice. The heat is very even throughout the surface of the grill (unlike my propane grill! @@@@@@@ , and it is ready to go in a quick 5 minutes or so. And the "smokeless" claim is true - even with a lot of marinade on the chicken, there was very little if any smoke. Clean up is very easy, but the inside panels do seem a little harder to keep clean. The grill top and the drip tray are both removable and very easy to clean. I have not bothered to put them in the dishwasher, as washing them by hand is easy enough. I cannot recommend this grill highly enough! It would be great for people in apartments that cannot have an outdoor grill, but is equally useable for someone who wants the ability to grill indoors with minimal fuss. Make sure you read the manual thoroughly, and do NOT stare into the grill while it is on. : @@@@@@@
