November 23, 2010AWESOME - Pricey but worth it.
"This is fantastic for condo living! Great steaks, fish, sandwiches, vegetables...you name it. We could not be happier with it. Enough cooking area for serving of 4. No issues with electrical components, and super easy clean up. For the price, Breville should supply the optional grates. Larry has some great points, but it's not a reason NOT to purchase. Looking to buy another one for the home FL...also condo living."
August 31, 2010Love this Grill
"I wish it had dual controls too. But even so, it can't be beat! Get yourself one today!"
May 14, 2010I LOVE IT!!!!!
"My wife an I had been looking for a decent quality griddle for months. We bought a low cost griddle but returned it because it did not heat the surface evenly, to say the least. The I stumbled upon this product. A grill that converts completely to a griddle and everything in between. The build is excellent, the versatility is second to none, and above all, it heats incredibly even across the entire cooking surface. The plates are fully removable for cleaning and interchangeable in position. I agree with other about having another flat plate to make it a full-on griddle but since one can buy additional plates, this can easily be done. I like this unit so much, it has crossed my mind that buying another grill would give you 4 interchangeable plates and even that much more cooking space. If there is anything that could be improved upon, I would have to agree with others with recommending that, since the grill converts to a 2-plate griddle, having dual temperature controls would be very beneficial. I also think the drip tray could be designed better and wish it had been made of the same quality of materials as the rest of the grill and not cheap plastic. All in all, I love it and so does my wife. We have used it almost every day since we purchased it."
April 20, 2010A FIVE STAR GRILL ...... MAYBE TEN
"What do you guys want? This is the best Grill on the market ever. I have had it 10 days now but have been looking for a few months at it. It is a bit pricey but what isnt these days. I love the Dishwasher safe plates. My Last grill you had to put the whole unit in the sink to wash it and that created a whole list of other issues. They could have included spare plates but they sell them for a reasonable price $50.00. Thats why I am on the site now is to get another flat one for additional pancake space. Cooks them perfect. Controls are real easy to use and I Love the Temp read out and Timer. Grilled Chicken Breasts on Sunday and thought I had over cooked them, but when I sliced into them they were perfect and very Moist. "
March 13, 2010Needs dual temperature controls
"I just bought my grill from Williams Sonoma (on sale at $299.) and for the most part I am happy with it. I ordered a second flat plate so I can make a lot of pancakes at a time and grill my ham & cheese sandwiches. But what I most would like to see is dual temperature controls so I can keep stuff warm on one plate while I grioll on the other. Because you can stand it on it send it stores quite nicely. I agree with the others about a redesign of the grease collector. If you just have grease it works ok but if there are crumbs it clogs and some do not fall in the trap."
February 10, 2010Great Indoor Grill!
"I purchased this grill after doing some research online about the various grills available on the market including price, heating power, features, service, etc. While pondering all the other grills and noting that most had some good features but lacked some others, I happened upon this grill at Williams & Sonoma. The price took me back a bit, but mentally comparing it to the others I had researched, it seemed to have by far the most comprehensive list of features all in one package. Since I've never been one to buy anything but top of the line (I do believe that in most cases you get what you pay for), I went ahead and spent the money. I've had it now for over a month and I couldn't be happier. I use it almost daily since my husband and I are attempting to go low-fat protein & complex carb meals. It's fantastic. I feel I absolutely purchased the best item on the market, even if the price is on the high side and it doesn't include the extra plates. I didn't have the heart to give it only four stars since I love it so much, but if I could give it 4.5 stars, I would do that only because the points made by the other reviewers are valid. I agree with all of them (grease drawer needs re-design at back, a buzzer for auto shutoff, and extra plates would be fantastic), although I have not used the entire surface for pancakes and cannot speak to the two surfaces being different temperatures. Features I absolutely LOVE: the ability to change from flat to tilted lower surface, ease of cleaning, and (believe it or not) the finger hole in the three-pronged plug! Why hasn't any other engineer prior to this thought about putting a finger hole in the plug???? It would certainly have made my life easier for the past 4 decades as gripping a plug while I was in an awkward position has been a pet peeve of mine! If this grill lasts several years, I will feel I have been in hog heaven. Great grill, guys!"
February 8, 2010My Favorite
"I must say that I have been using this grill for a few days now and it is by far the best cooking device that I have ever used. My fish stakes come out perfect every time. It also makes phenomenal paninis and cleans super easily. If this is any indication of the quality of Breville products; they have found a new customer for life. "
January 27, 20104 stars but should be 5
"We love your smart grill but do have the same opinion as others about providing extra plates for larger griddle or grill. The price warrants more flexibility, especially since competitors do provide the plates, albeit with a slightly smaller cooking surface. Your appliance provides the opportunity for healthy food and easy clean-up. What could be better? A more generous collection for drippings. If you made this adjustments we would give 5 stars without hesitation!!!
We will have plates available soon. Thanks."
January 23, 2010Almost there
"Great grill, just need a way to balance the heat between the two plates. The bottom plate heats up much faster then the one on the lid and seems to always be a little hotter than the top. L& G had a similar problem with pancakes browning on one side faster than the other. Can it be sent back for calibration?"
January 2, 2010Great product that could be easily made better for the price.
"After picking up our product last night and using it for the first time this morning, I would agree with J's assessment, with perhaps one caveat. The pancakes cooked on the left side of the grill were less browned than the ones on the right, even though that batter was added first. I'm concerned about the evenness of cooking. The bacon cooked on the grill side was cooked perfectly. We traded the panini grill received as a Christmas gift, even though it appears to be a near-perfect product. We needed to replace our ancient griddle and this multi-purpose product seemed (almost) ideally suited to our needs.
So my recommendations for improvement:
1. Provide the extra plates to make it all griddle or all grill; that lack was our only concern in buying the product. At US$350, that's a reasonable expectation. At the very least make it an (affordable) option or add-on.
2. Address the "even heat" issue (only more use will tell if we continue to experience the same issue). The flat surface should have the same heat edge to edge.
3. Again, my experience with the grease trap echoes that of "J" - it needs to catch all the runoff.
4. Add a second control so that the grill side and the griddle side can be set for the precise temperature needed.
5. The auto-off feature needs a warning buzzer; with preheat and several items to prepare, I didn't notice the heating element had shut off in mid-cook until I realized that it wasn't cooking properly. Fortunately, I'd made plenty of batter, but that could throw a cold experience for a hot breakfast in serving guests.
With some of those issues corrected, I would happily give this a 5-star rating.
Thanks for your valuable feedback. We will pass this along to our design team."
