We had an older version of the 9-servings Foreman Grill, and my in-laws were borrowing it a lot, so I figured for this price, let 'em keep it and I'll get a new one! Wonderful grill! I love cooking steak on it because the lean drippings can so easily be used to go au jus. But meats, veggies, this is great. Here's a tip though: have an empty sink ready, and as soon as you're done, wipe it down with paper towels, use oven mitts to put it in the sink, and give it a quick spray off with hot water. If you clean it immediately, it's a cinch, but if you don't, it can really cake on and you may find yourself removing the coating and then it's just about ruined. Keep it like new by taking care of it - clean it promptly. Enjoy!
