This has already received the family accolade for cheese toasties and paninis, in addition it is easy to clean, the reversible plates allow the best Canadian style pancakes ever, not only that but because the top flattens over to create a twice the size griddle, I can make twice as many, thus keeping up demand. I bought this through the Amazon marketplace, which sells goods that have been returned. This is the second item I have bought this way and I must say the only thing wrong with both items was that there was evidence that the boxes had been opened before - when the item comes with a discount as generous as the one Amazon offers I really don't mind the packaging being a tad 'used' There was nothing wrong with either product and the Cuisinart Griddle and Grill more than lives up to my expectation. The only thing I would say is that it is important to make sure the green 'ready' light comes on before you put the food in the machine, otherwise (as is the case for toasties) the outer layer will be toasted but the filling will only be warmed. All in all the Cuisinart is more than a good replacement for my previously well-loved Griddle and Grill.

Happy with Purchase
This is a good all rounder - It cooks chicken, chicken wings, steaks and burgers and any sandwich perfectly to your liking.
I like the fact that it also flattens out to enable you to cook pancakes which I thought was a good feature.
The grills also after you finished cooking come off for cleaning and can be washed in the dishwasher which I find is the best way to clean them after soaking and washing off the residue by hand - I soak mine first don't try and scratch off residue of food as it will take the Teflon off of the grills then after soaking for some time I get a very soft washing up microfibre cloth and the residue comes off easy and then it's into the dishwasher for a thorough clean.
I love cooking food with my Cuisinart better than frying or grilling as you don't get the fat or the dryness as the meat is always succulent and juicy. Out of all the similar products I brought in the past this is the best one I ever brought. 5 stars.

Poor heating, 2 elements but 1600w isnt enough power, takes ages to get hot, the dials that state the heating, sear, not hot enough again, return as possible fault. Nice design but a poor compromise between normal or proff usage. It looks pro but the inners are not up to it.
I also have a breville 2000w press grill that hears up 5 times faster and has same surface area but much slimmer.

Extremely disappointing as you expect better from such expansive equipment.

This is not a cheap grill. There is a reason for that, it is fantastic.

My partner was concerned about the price, considering we had seen £20 ones in the shop of inferior quality and all we wanted originally was a decent toastie maker.

He asked me to get the best one I could, I did some research and picked this one. We have used it probably between 4 and 5 times a week since.

We make panini's, pancakes, burgers, I even grilled aubergines on it to make a parmigiana and it was a million times better than using a pan or the grill in the oven.

Burgers are nicely dark on the outside with a lovely criss cross pattern (turn it halfway through cooking) and moist in the middle, pancakes are perfectly browned using the griddle function, everything I cook on this is perfect due to the variable controls and the lid that can accommodate anything you throw at it. A better alternative that using your oven or hob if you need the space too.

There is a fat collection tray that is discreetly hidden that collects things easily. It is very easy to clean either by hand or in the dishwasher for the plates.

Highly recommend. It is worth the money.

Seems well made and I think it should last. It does seem to get good and hot, but if you are cooking a large piece of meat at one time, it does seem to loose of its heat, meaning you can't always get it to sear the meat. If it had I would have given it five stars.

Easy to clean. the plates come off easily and the no stick coating is good. The plates are also stable. They don't rattle about, unlike some other contact grills I have seen with removable plates.

** Update after three years heavy usage.

We've been using this regularly now for just over three years, mainly toasting gluten free cheese toasties. Still really impressed with the quality and how robust it is. The non-stick plates are starting to loose there non-stick coating a little, but then they have been through the dishwasher loads of times.

If it's broke tomorrow we'd definitely replace it like for like without hesitation.

I was a bit dubious about ordering this, because of the lettering coming off, so many people complained about, and sent it back, even though
the company did exchange them for new replacement.. but the performance of this is great from what I can see, mine is too soon to see if the
lettering comes off (early days yet), but it did sound like it came from batch of them and not all..lets see. I can highly recommend this grill come sandwich maker though.

Of all my kitchen gadgets, this is one which has earned a permanent place on my counter top. One of my main reasons for purchasing was the removable plates - these are a god send, just push the button on the sides for easy release, and they pop right out and wash off easily in hot soapy water in the sink. One side is ridged and the other flat, so you can pick your preference depending on what you're making, and there are a multitude of heat-setting options also. I love this for making potato hash browns from scratch, home made veggie / bean burgers, toasted sandwiches or paninis, pancakes, and even grilling veggies (it opens out flat if required, so you can use both surfaces at the same time). Wouldn't be without it now, highly recommended.

Bought to replace the George Foreman which had seen good service for a number of years and finally expired. Read the excellent reviews before buying the product which we have now had for about a month. We have not been disappointed because it:

Seems well put together
Takes up less space than the George
Dials are uncomplicated and simple to use (no electronics to go wrong, reminiscent of our Dualit toaster)
Heats up fairly quickly
The floating hinge works great with various thicknesses
Has a choice of plate surfaces as both plates are reversible and easy to take on and off when cold!
Can be used closed for paninis, toasted sandwiches, burgers, chops, steaks, vegetables, etc
Can also be used open (doubling the cooking surface area) for pancakes, eggs, barbecues, etc (not tried it open yet)
Is easy to clean with the removable plates (we leave them about an hour and wash in soapy water, no scrubbing)
The integral drip tray which slides out for emptying/cleaning means you don't forget to put it under the front as sometimes happened with the George, but conversely you do need to remember to empty it too because its out of sight!
Has a five year warranty

For a more detailed report on this product, read the other reviews.

So far, we wouldn't be without it.

Update 4 July 2013: Had to return the machine as the letters were coming off the dials, that was on the 10 June. It was 2 to 3 days outside the Amazon return period so called Cuisinart who got us to send it back using Collect Plus at their expense and within about 7 days had a brand new machine which arrived on the 21 June. Great, the machine is very good and don't want to be without it. However after only using it twice noticed that the letters are coming off the right hand dial again (last time it was all three predominately across the top of the dials where the clean up cloth goes over them!). Will be on the phone to Cuisinart today and will report back again soon. Still insist that the machine is great at what it does and it does it well, but this issue obviously needs sorting.

Update 11 August 2013: Machine was again returned to Cuisinart at their expense after a phone call. This will be the second machine that we have had to return with the lettering coming off the dials; some what of an embarrassment to Cuisinart! Customer service was fine about it and the lady involved said that she would make sure the replacement came from a new batch to avoid a repeat problem. Also good to note that after each return was received by them someone always contacted us by phone to confirm what was happening about the problem. From a customer point of view that has to be good thing. Brand new replacement machine was received on the 12 July, has been in regular use and there has been no reoccurrence of the lettering on the dials coming off. Even with the problems of the lettering coming off the dials, which has to be down to a manufacturing issue, the machine is simply great at what it does and it does it well. And remember it does come with a 5 year manufacturers warranty and first class customer service, so we would still say "what is not to like?".

I've never used a griddle before as I always thought they were a bit of a gimmick. I have a perfectly good grill in my oven. Friends have got a 'George Foreman' grill languishing at the back of their kitchen cupboard alongside their bread maker and juicer!
However, after spending ages cleaning the oven grill every time it was used I decided to buy this griddle. It is a joy to use, easy to clean and very healthy - especially as now I can just put a spray of oil on the surfaces.
To date I have cooked steaks, sausages, a tandoori mixed grill (!), prawns and toasted cheese and tomato sandwiches (a favourite of my wife's). All have come out excellent; the steaks especially, with their charred grill markings. Sausages take less time to cook and remain succulent.
Clean-up is a piece of cake. Just wait for the plates to cool and wash them. No more scraping wire grills!
The grill can open up to double its size and with the reversible plates I can cook bacon and eggs very quickly.
The lid is a bit tricky to set for sandwiches - I managed to press the wrong button and release the (very hot) plate - but I suspect this is down to me. I am sure I will get used to it.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with it's cooking abilities, smart looks, flexibility and, most important, ease of cleaning. It was more expensive than some others I looked at, but I believe the features are worth the extra. I can't wait to try the 'Panini' setting!
I know that this is one kitchen utensil that will not languish at the back of the kitchen cupboard alongside the bread maker and juicer!
