I like my burger patties seared, but not the smoke and smell that a cast iron skillet makes indoor...this grill is the perfect solution since I can now do just that on my balcony!
The surface heated up very quickly. I am very please with how even the temperature was across the entire surface. The made from scratch buttermilk pancakes had no hot spots as evidenced in the attached photos.
Made fried eggs with a little oil and they turned out great. It heats up quickly and evenly. Enough surface area for cooking bacon and eggs for 2-3 persons at the same time. It does help to cut down the time spent on fixing breakfast for my family. Very easy to use and clean up because of the non-stick surface. Best one I've owned!
