Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbecueDad The Best Of the Best
This product is outstanding. It cooks extremely well. Its simple and similar to cooking with charcoal. The grill has the capacity to cook at one time: 12 burgers, porterhouse or T bone steaks, 12 pork chops,2 chickens cut up and at least 24 hot dogs (per manual).
You can add smoke flavor to any foods by adding chips of hickory, mesquite, apple, cherry etc (not included). I don't believe you can use lava rock (rocks may be too big). The flavor/taste of food off this grill is like those off a traditional grill.
The manual comes with several recipes.
If your a serious buyer research the the price of this grill from other sellers. You CAN'T beat Walmarts price. This is a great grill and I believe you will be very happy with it. Please note only use grill outdoors and it takes about 20-30 mins to assemble a few minor parts (10 step assembly). ENJOY!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by joanyk best ever grill
I was not exactly sure what this grill was going to be like because it was not sold in stores for me to look at. I have never owned a grill that was this easy to use and even better clean up is a breeze. When I got done cooking chicken and it was all over the grill pan and the grate I thought it was going to be a horror story. From the time I put it in the sink the mess just sponged off. I then went to clean the inside. Again, it just sponged off. What a great product. I'm sorry that I waited so long to choose this grill. Awesome!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mumsy2B Quick and easy
After have a couple of other brand electric tabletop grills; I decided to try this one after reading the other reviews.. It is very sturdy; and well made; and easy to assemble.. I am very satisfied.

Grill cooks fine. No charcoal required. Just plug in and set the dial low to high.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fancyflyer This is a really good deal
It is not a super high-precision device, but it fits together well enough and it is quite sturdy. The temperature selector does not read in degrees, so a thermometer might be useful. But it gets hot enough to sear steaks.
The lid is fully hinged and works well. The base is sturdy and the handles are sufficiently well designed that you won't get burned without deserving it. :)
If you use wood chips it smokes up a storm, but you need to wrap them in a foil tube and place it on the grill; the chips don't get hot enough to burn if you put the chip packet down below as you would with charcoal.
Cleanup is easy enough, as you can put the grill, the reflector plate and the drip cup into the dishwasher.
I was expecting most of the above from reading the product description, but WalMart's price for this thing was the big surprise. This was far, far lower than any other retailer's price. If you want an electric tabletop grill you should buy this one here.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NormaA EASY understandable directions!
It's made in America and the directions were planned and WRITTEN in clearly understandable English. All the parts were there, and it was a joy to put together. This is a quality product! Hooray! I'll buy other products from this manufacturer!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gleedah Good substitute
Where gas or charcoal are not allowed (condo, zoning), this is a decent substitute at a reasonable price. We like it more than our Forman Grill, since it is more similar to an outdoor grill. But don't think you'll get the same type of cooking as you would from a charcoal or gas grill.
Assembly required: not too difficult
Rated 5 out of 5 by kennym99 compact and tasty
I like the Meco Electric Tabletop Grill because it takes up very little space, has plenty of cooking space inside and burgers taste just like real outdoor cooked burgers I would expect. Plus the grill surface and the heat reflector fit easily in our dishwasher. For the price it can't be beat!
Rated 5 out of 5 by scopect Easy to set up and use
The assembly instructions were clear. I did think the product was not working at first, but I had not pushed the handle with the element in it all the way in - this is really a safety feature. Once I figured that out it worked very very well
Rated 5 out of 5 by irishfanGran Love my little grill
I'm afraid of gas grills and am hesitant to ask my husband to cook when he gets home.This little grill heats up fast and get very hot. I'm more than pleased.
Rated 4 out of 5 by krbri Excellent Option for Apartment!
I love this grill! Clean up is a snap as most of the pieces can fit in the dishwasher. Good bbq flavor without the hassle of charcoal or propane (also allows for balcony grilling when charcoal and propane style grills are outlawed). It's a little hard to put together, you'll need a flat head and Phillips screwdriver, a pliers, and a ratchet set might be useful for the side handle (though not necessary). The directions also state it can be used as a smoker, though I have not tried it yet. Even though this grill is electric, it gives the real grill experience and taste.
Only reason for 4*... I really wish it had a warming grate and a thermometer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by bobcatscat very nice product
After reading all the reviews on this electric grill we purchased it inorder to cook healthier. So far this grill has performed excelent. We will be ordering another to take in the RV. Price this model with the Meco site and it is a very good buy.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jawflapper50 Not really for use in doors
Wal mart had in description could be used outdoors and indoors but let me say if used indoors get ready to open all windows for it will smoke. I am disappointed for I was hoping to use this indoors but there just no way.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyDi5807 ABSOLUTELY IDEAL!
This grill is PERFECT.
I'm a single mom with no time for hastle nor the money for a big fancy grill.. this takes up very little space and doesn't require costly propane or messy charcoal. A breeze to assemble. I'm very happy with how it cooks - burgers, chicken and roasted veggies -- so far! Cleans easily.
Far better than anticipated.
And Walmart, once again, had the lowest price by far...

I love this product. Just put some hardwood in when grilling and it is just like a barbeque flavor. Would recommend
Rated 5 out of 5 by Toy4ever great product
Easy to put together and no missing parts. The grill is bigger than I thought it was, but it really does the job of a big outdoor grill.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Micki4 FANTASTIC PRODUCT
This handy, well made grill is perfect for my lanai.
My steaks grilled perfectly and were delicious.
Clean up was a snap. I would recommend to anyone
or give as a gift. Made in the USA is an added bonus.
You will love it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by grillman47 Very good grill for indoors
This grill is perfect for apartment or indoor grilling. It cooks great. The only problem was with the installation instructions. They were very hard to understand because directions did not match the numbers on the illustrations. Finally gave up and did it on my own. Otherwise product is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kijack Good for Apartments
My husband assembled the grill with no problems. It has a heat indicator low, medium and high that works fine. It cooks baby back ribs, chicken, pork chops and sausage well. Had to keep an eye on the drip cup so it didn't overflow. Good flavor and easy to work with.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jackindc A nice little grill
i had used a George Foreman grill for years but always missed the sizzle of an open flame during the cooking process. This grill is not an open flame, but the heating element is big enough to generate the kind of heat needed to melt the fat and drip on the element and create lots of wonderful smoke. My only problem with this grill is that it is not easy to clean so I have put a lot of foil in the bottom and the lower rack under the heating element to make for very quick cleanup and just replace the foil after every use.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dcmesq101 Amazing
I love this grill. It is easy to assemble, use and clean.
Rated 4 out of 5 by parallelogram Love it!!
Grill was not difficult to assemble, took about 45 mins. I've used it to grill burgers, fish, veggies, etc. The flavor is unbelievable! Drippings first fall thru grill onto drip pan then drain to cup in base. Drip pan allows for a fantastic smoke flavor to develop. Clean grill & drip pan with a scrubber sponge easily. It does get hot enough to sear burgers, but of course takes longer than an open flame.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wb5705 Outstanding value
We have owned several of these grills over the past 25 years. They don't last forever, because the heating element will generally burn out after 4-5 years. The replacement elements are hard to find, and cost almost as much as a new grill. These grills cook great, are very economical since they don't require gas. They also don't take up a lot of room, and heat up quickly. They are definitely for outdoor use. We just had one burn out after 5 years of use, and have bought a replacement from Walmart. By the way, Walmarts price can't be beat, as they are generally priced from $95 to $150 everywhere else, and I have seen the same model priced at over $200.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nonicknames2 Saves money in the Arizona heat!
It saves money since you can cook outdoors in the summer, keeping your air conditioning cost down plus, it keeps the smoke out of the house! Cooks great! Heats up fast! The only problem is, you have to assemble it and there's only one screw holding the heating element to the unit, instead of two! Next, I bent the catch pan into a U shape, keeping it from being too close to the element but, then I had to fabricate a new bracket to keep the grille level in order to get a uniform cooking surface. With my modifications, it's PERFECT and will pay for itself in the first year!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrissy61 This grill is more than I had expected; it is very well built and strudy. I am a 50 year old single woman and after reading some of the reviews I wondered about the assembly. When I received it, it only took me about 20 minutes to put together. It was really easy; the directions are easy to understand and the numbered drawing was extremely helpful. I am not comfortable with changing out propane tanks and this electric grill is just the ticket. For the product you more than get your moneys worth. Thanks!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by panchito1 Easy to use and clean. Beats charcoal and propane. Plan on an hour to assemble.
Rated 4 out of 5 by DonnaB3350 Exactly what I was looking for.
I couldn't find a table top electric grill at any store I looked in. Glad I found WalMart online ordering. Thanks to those who answered my earlier question.
