Pros:good size, easy clean up

Cons:does not really get hot enough to grill food 

I have used various small Foreman grills for cooking in the summer.   They all worked well,  got hot fast and cooked fast.
But I wanted one that would cook a full meal, meat veggies everything at once.
And I wanted the easy clean-up of removable plates.
Bought this one...Followed the directions carefully.  It took 10 minutes to "preheat"  with the temp knob set to the highest setting.  And it was still not really hot enough. 
Tried it twice, once with salmon and once with a steak.  Each time it was the same process and problem.  It takes a long time and just does not get hot enough to really grill anything.   It just kind of slowly steamed the food.  

It is possible that the griller I got was defective, but I suspect a major design flaw. 
There is a metal cover over the heating element and I suspect that this interferes with the heat getting to the cooking surfaces.
Returned it to the store and bought a Cuisinart Griller which I have used once, and love it.
