This grill is amazing! Makes bad food healthy, & healthy food even better! Love using this, & don't use the frying pan anymore! :) Performance The first time I used the grill, I couldn't believe how different everything tasted! Without all the grease, it was different, & tasted like something was missing. Once I realized how much BETTER it was, I never went back. Now I use it every time I make anything with grease, like burgers & bacon, and anytime I want a good, clean taste to my food, like grilled cheese, & grilled vegetables. I don't even need to bring out my grill, with charcoal (unless I want to) to get that great grilled taste! :) Durability The drip pan broke off. Other than that, everything has been very durable, & works wonderfully! Ease of Cleaning Just wipe it down, put detachable parts in the dishwasher & that's it! I like to wash it down with cleaner, then with water. Makes it even cleaner! Ease of Use This grill is so easy to use! All the grease drains out, & it cooks both sides at once.
