Won't heat up; no on/off switch


Can I RMA this thing or exchange it? Not happy. Definitely not worth the $77.99 price tag when I bought it on 9/8/2012.

It has a nice grilling surface.

I just unboxed it, and it's been on, set to max temp, for over 20 minutes, and the ready light hasn't come on. I can lay my hand inside it and it's barely warm. Certainly not hot enough to cook anything. It's plugged into the outlet my stove was...

Quick cook, pain to clean


For the price this unit is superior. The heating element is heavy thus conducts heat evenly. Then it comes time to clean - the unit warns you about submersing, so the only way to clean it is to lay it across the top of the sink and try to balance it as...

Quick, very even cooking. Nonstick

Cooking surfaces are not removable.

Good grill/panini maker for a year or so


It was a decent buy for $60 when I got it, just wish it wouldn't have leaked grease

Makes good burgers and panini's

After using it a year and a half or so it started to leak grease, and to the point where it was a real mess to clean up.

I can now make sandwiches or burgers that would cost $5-$8.

Heats up quick (about 5 min) and is perfect for grilling in dorms or apartments (I am in a dorm). Also makes great sandwiches or panini's.

Grilling burgers makes a little bit to clean up, but then again using non-stick spray might prevent that. Not really a con cause what indoor grill doesn't require cleaning?
