I am a busy mother of 3 and purchased this model, which is the second george foreman grill I have had. The first one I gave away because I was not using it regularly. When I decided to start watching my weight....again, I purchased this unit. I love the sleek stainless steel and black design. The function of it is pretty good. I use it mostly for chicken but have also used it for hamburgers. I usually use it when I am making my lunches for the week and am cooking only for me. I find in cooking both the chicken and hamburgers it really crisps up the sides quite a bit more than I like. With the double sided grills you can set the food in their and leave it, however because it tends to get overly crispy I find myself flipping it several times and usually butterflying the chicken to get it done. With that being said, I still definitely like the convienence of being able to cook my meals easily and quickly when I am cooking just for myself.
