I have owned this grill for less than a week, but I have grilled a rib eye steak, catfish fillet, bacon, cheese sandwich and squash. All were excellent except the squash which was OK...I should have cut lengthwise not into slices as the book recommended. I lightly coat most meats (not bacon) with virgin olive oil and pre-season as the on-line videos suggest. The timer recommendations in the owner's book appear to be very accurate. Grease (fat) drains off the bacon and the results are fantastic. Clean-up is a snap...I soak and hand wash the removable plates in the sink...most experts recommend that you don't use the dishwasher due to potential plate warping, corrosion or teflon degradation. The removable plates fit this machinge much better than the more expensive G4 multiple plate model and the quality is much better than the other George Foreman models. The digital timer is very easy to use and the stainless steel cover is easily cleaned and looks great. I also like the on/off switch, on light, floating hinge and locks to enable upright storage. I also had purchased a Cuisinart Gourmet Gridler ($100) from Costco, but returned it because of reported owner reliability and poor draining/splattering isssues. The only negative thing I can say about this grill is that the cord is the shortest I have ever seen on any appliance. The manufacturer will tell you that this is for safety reasons and states that you can replace the cord with a longer one...Yeah Thanks! The cord works for me, because my glass top range is next door to an outlet and I place the grill on the range under the overhead venting hood. Steam is released during cooking, so I would recommend a nearby power vent. This grill is great for preparing better tasting and healthier foods and fits my bachelor lifestyle. I even enjoy cooking now. I rated "Durability" a 3 due to the short time I have owned the machine. The current price at Walmart is the same as Amazon, but you do have to pay tax.
