I have this grill and have used it many, many times. You can cook fish, steak, chicken and other things on it. It’s quick and keeps the food moist, which is one of the best features. I love it because I eat lots of salads and when you are making salads you don’t want to be spending time cooking all the meat. The secret is in leaving the meat on longer than you typically would and turning it over just once no more…not fussing and fussing over it. Other reviewers have commented on the weakness of the finish and I agree, it does come off easily, but using PAM or other non stick stuff makes it not such a problem. If you don’t use it, however, clean up is very difficult. Other than that, I’ve never let the liquid boil off and anyway, you can pour a beer on it while it’s cooking and it will not only add flavor to the meat but it spills into the ring and then you don’t boil off all the liquid. I love this thing and use it often. I’ve even given it as a gift. It’s a decent product and works well for the money.
