After reading all the other reviews on this grill, I was totally confused. People either hated it or loved it. I decided to go ahead and purchase this grill. I had one of the first GF grills ever made, and I figured a new one with heat controls had to be much better than what I had!! I must say, I love, love, love this grill!! I have used it about 10 times since I received it, and our food is delicious. It's great because you can set the temperatures for all different kinds of meats, veggies, etc. If you liked the older grills, you will LOVE this one! And, the greatest feature are the removable plates for washing!!Thanks George Foreman!!
