After owning several indoor grills that failed to give me the sear and flavor I wanted from Hamburgers, chicken, pork steaks and fish I started looking for something that would be easy to use but would cook things evenly. I had skimped on other indoor grills and ended up disappointed with them so I didn't look at the price on any of them when I went shopping. Weber is a big name in the world of grilling and this unique looking, easy to clean electric grill does not disappoint. You are going to want to check the entire grill when you get it home because there are some cardboard and plastic pieces used in the packaging process. The heat up time is about three to four minutes and it keeps a consistent temperature when you are cooking. The outside is easy to wipe down once you are done but you are going to have to take the inside apart after you unplug and remove the electric cord.
