I have recently purchased this grill simply because I want to fry less often and grill more to eat healthier. The first thing that I grilled was salmon. It turned out so delicious after I sprinkled a little lemon! Besides fish, I grill all kinds of meats, from steak to pork chops to chicken and sausage, which are also pretty tasty. I use it every day. I usually clean the grill when it is warm, and the clean-up is just a breeze. I never let the grill dry, so I do not know how easy it is to clean it then. I always make sure to unplug it as soon as I am done, as there is no switch to turn it on/off. It heats up very quickly and grilling is quite fast. As for the grilling time, it really depends how you like your steak, bur for me, I prepare my medium rare steak in maximum ten minutes! I really love everything about this grill -- it grills nicely, it is very quick, easy to clean, has an ideal size (makes it easy for me to store it in one of the drawers below countertops). I highly recommend it!
