This grill has good features but the nonstick coating wears off after just a few uses. The grill is easy to use and easy to clean. However, the build of the body is less sturdy than desired. The cover on the bottom of the grill which covers over wiring came off when I was wiping it to clean it. That was disappointing and I believe can be fixed with another small piece of plastic or aluminum about the size of a credit card. The unit still works and I am still needing to make a new cover for the wiring. Easy cleanup of this grill makes it nice to own. The plates remove easily and food particles can be brushed off and washed quickly. I used a hand brush which has dish soap detergent squirted on it. I really like this grill, it is half the price of other comparable grills and I would give it five stars if the bottom plate had not come off and the nonstick coating of the plates had lasted longer.
