Confirmed purchaser

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Heats up quickly, and cooks evenly.
Bad points:
The instruction manual is poor. Whilst it gives cooking times for a few products, it does not indicate which heat setting should be used. As a consequence when cooking chicken breasts the recommendation of 6 minutes was much too short - the pieces had to be cut to see if they were cooked, contrary to other instructions.

When cleaning the top plate the cleaning water drips down the back of the grill over the cable casing and onto the working surface.

Confirmed purchaser House husband

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Heats up quickly, cooks quikly, drip tray clips to machine realy smoothly, and therefore doesn't miss anything or get knocked over. It does everything it is reqired to do with a solid feel.
Bad points:
Yes cleaning it is a bit tricky to clean, but do this while it is still warm, whilst meat is resting and it's alot easier. Cut up an old sponge and use lots of cold water.

JPJ, Swansea

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really like it. Great for grilling sliced aubergine. Good deep drip tray for fat & juices to be collected - v.easy to remove and empty.
Bad points:
Bit of a pain to clean between all the grooves. I wipe them down with a damp cloth while it is still warm.

Tim, Teddington

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Heats very quickly and can be set to very high temperature for e.g. steaks. Cooks well and easy to clean. Clip-on fat tray is an excellent feature.
Bad points:
Outside surfaces get very hot and take a while to cool down. This could be a safety issue with children around.
