I just bought this grill, and used it for the first time on some chopped boneless chicken. I may post a follow-up after using it longer. Here are my notes so far:
Assembly: The provided instructions were pretty good, being a newbie with BBQ's, this took me about 30-40 minutes to assemble because I was afraid of messing things up.
Grill: the grill itself had wider spacing then I had pictured, so some of my little pieces of chicken fell through the cracks and I had to fish them out and rearrange them better. I will try to use bigger pieces next time.
The warming rack seems pretty flimsy. I was cautious of not dislodging it when cooking.
Cooking: The chicken cooked really nicely within 50 minutes.
Cleaning: I had lined the bottom with foil based on reviews I had read to make cleanup easier. However, after waiting for the grill to cool off and spraying it with a special grill cleaner, using a brush and plenty of soap and water, I was still not able to get all the guck off of the grill and heatplate no matter how hard I scrubbed or how much I soaked it. Those items seem really hard to clean. But again, I am a newbie, and maybe there are other tips I can learn. Cleaning the foil-lined bottom was super easy. Maybe I should put foil on the grill too? Does any one do that? Bottom-line: I think this grill is a great value. Perfect for a little apartment or camping trip. I really like the built-in thermometer, adjustable heat settings, handle, locking-lid, and fold-up legs.
