November 24, 2012Worth Every Penny
"I am the guy who tests everything. You know the type, that little boy who took his daddy's drill apart just to see how it worked. Well I didn't take this grill apart but I did test it. I turned it to full sear and let it heat. Once I heard the beep I turned around to my freezer and pulled out some chicken breast and placed in on the grill. Closed the lid and let it cook. Ten minutes later I checked the temperature and it was 185 degrees. I was shocked and although chicken is supposed to be cooked to 165f this chicken was moist and tasty. No marinade, rub, or seasoning at all.
I would recommend this product to anyone. The only reason I marked four stars instead of five is because I would like to have a place to select between the bottom and top plates. "

"I have had this unit for over a year, we use it constantly and have had no problems with it. I use it mostly to grill elk steaks and grilled sandwiches. It gets really cold in Montana during the winter and outside grilling can be quite challenging. This little grill fills in nicely on the days when it just isn't feasible to fire up the big grill. This is the only Breville of the 8 I own that lost a star, I really would like both sets of plates included, the price when the extra plates are figured in is quite high. The quality of the unit is top notch."
September 27, 2011Amazing Grill!
"We've had this grill for about a month now, and we love it. Quick and easy to use. Our kids are eating Paninis non-stop!"
April 19, 2011Thank you-
"Recently, purchased the Smart grill and we are very happy with the unit. This is worth every penny we spent, I cooked omelets, and they were delicious and healthy (no oil). We also purchased an additional grill plate, to make steaks, hamburgers ect.
Only, thing is I would like to see is the Engineers create waffle irons for the unit, to compete with other grills that are on the market currently.
March 1, 2011Its Silly to have One of Each Plate (should have two of both)
"The unit is very heavy duty and looks and feels like a commercial grill, but who wants a one sided Panini Sandwich? Had to opt in for the lower-ended Panini Grill for those coveted "GRILL MARKS" we love.
Recommendation: Put both sets of plates in the box! The price certainly warrants it. For $100 more, I can get a commercial grade product.

February 28, 2011saw it and i wanted it!
"I use to own a George Foreman but I must say nothing compares to this. I love it so easy to clean and cook basically anything."
February 4, 2011Complete Breville Addict
"This month the Wife and I bought the BOV800XL Smart oven, the IKON blender, and this grill. Hopefully this addiction will end soon. If you need marketing people for NorCal I'm definitely your guy.
We have a really nice grill in the yard but it's been really cold and I'm getting slighly wimpier in my older age so we were looking for a kind of panini press / indoor grill. We got a Cuisinart last month as a wedding gift but after finding this product we HAD to get it and returning the competitor's product made the upgrade less painful.
I agree with the other person - I REALLY wish this had waffle plates. Not sure how the timing would work - I'll let product engineers figure that out but I'd love the option.
I think a reversible plate is an interesting idea - both because of cost but mainly because of storage also.
And I know it's probably pretty lame but I wish we had a black cordura nylon cover for this.
I do love the power plug as well, however I wish the cable was a little longer. I would pay more for retractable.
Dual controls could be a nice thing but I don't think I'd want more stuff on the front. Maybe all touch screen - with an iPhone dock (jk).
We got ours for $269.99 from Macy*s with free shipping + tax. All in all very happy and would buy again.

February 2, 2011Great features, but a big problem
"I really like the grill, and I appreciate the temperature control, the timer, and the removable plates. It has a tremendous design, with great features. My grill is hampered by a large problem, however; about 75% of the times that I turn it on, I get an error message on the temperature readout. The manual addresses the issue. You are supposed to turn off the grill, wait for it to cool, and start over. I never have time to wait for it to cool. I don't turn it on until I am ready to grill steaks, etc., which means that the rest of the meal is nearing completion. Fortunately, the grill will continue to heat after I unplug it and turn it back on. Under those conditions, the grill appears to heat continuously, and the temperature controls do not work. I am still able to cook, but the advanced control features and temperature readout appear to be useless.
January 31, 2011Great product.
"I got this for a Christmas gift. I am gettin to be a Breville fanatic!
I love to cook but have little time between two careers and working on a graduate degree. Every Breville appliance is designed to convienience, this grill fits right in with everything else Breville that I own.
I live in Florida whre it is against the law to grille on the patio or balcony if unless its electric. My Cuisinart Pannini Grill did a fairly good job but it never heated high enough or maintained heat as predictably as my Breville Grill. Ise it as a griddle and pannini maker.
My Cuisinart went to Salvation Army."
January 28, 2011Ready to buy, but ...
"I have the Smart Oven and am considering an indoor grill.
The Breville looks to be the best, but would like to see some changes.
Instead of having to buy extra plates, why can't the plates be reversible, since the element is imbedded? I really don't want to buy/store extra plates for everyday cooking, especially with the price of the Smart Grill being what it is.
Also, a competitor's grill has optional waffle plates for purchase - any chance of this happening with Breville?
Breville Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback and suggestions for improvements. I have forwarded your ideas to the product manager. "
