I've had this grill for a bit over a year and I would say I'm not totally impressed. I would have first off preferred a black grill so that the grease and smudges wouldn't be so noticeable. The chrome appears all "clean and new" at first but then use it once and it's a disaster. It's very hard to keep clean and keep looking as good as it did when we bought it. Also when cooking I've noticed there are "hot spots" on the grill so depending on where I place my meat I may end up with a very burned steak or a very undercooked one. That's obviously not ideal or easy to deal with so overall I would say I wouldn't recommend this grill or buy another one. Not a very satisfied customer. Ease of Use As mentioned previously the "hot spots" on the grill are very difficult. Looks like it's a malfunction that needs to be fixed on all the grills. Ease of Cleaning Everything looks super greasy still and the char sticks to everything. The first impression was a bit of a set up.
