This does a very good job and replaced a 20 year old HBeach unit. The "sear" feature is nice and the variable temp contol is very handy. Cooks up bacon great, by the way! Haven't tried it with steaks yet, but other reviews indicate it works well. It is versatile, especially with the floating top for bulkier items. The only complaints , which are minor to me, are these: 1) Grease catcher is not attached, so you need to be mindful it's by the drip spout, especially when adding additional food, removing items, etc. The unit tends to slide.( my prior unit had its catch basin as a slide out drawer, much more convenient); 2) No timer shutoff, but I just use a regular timer. So if you tend to get distracted and forget stuff, , might want to put the fire dept on speed dial... 3) A little clumsy to clean the top grille, as it does float. I wait till it cools a little, use a paper towel to hold it steady( there's a ledge area that's not part of the grill, per se, but it does get hot), and then wipe it down. I recomment this unit , with the above caveats, and would buy it again.
