This is potentially the best indoor grill on the market. I consider myself an expert on these things having used an indoor grill consistently for over 6 years. I had an old t-fal which came to an end after it simply wore out from usage. This 2-3.5 years ago. Ever since then I have been keeping an eye on the market for a replacement something powerful but cost efficient. The critical requirement for the replacement to be the same method as the old t-fal, and that is, open slats/slots on the grill and water drip tray. This is the key to an indoor grill. The majority you see on the market are closed tops and are nothing more than “griddles” haha. No way shape or form is it a grill when you’re essentially frying the food in its own oil despite any method they devise to simulate a grill. It must have a proper bbq grill with slots /slots for the height to come up and the juice to drip down. This grill is by far the most unique and I would highly recommend it.
