Very good purchase

published

It is much more expensive than the "George Foreman" type grills and griddles, which have the controls on the power cable assembly.
I have 2 of these units, a George Foreman and a Sunbeam, and the power cable assembly doesn't engage properly, and you have to check if the plate is heating. I think the assembly must be transmitting heat to the plate, rather than electricity, because otherwise the circuit would be interrupted. Happy to stand corrected on this.
So I looked for a unit with the controls on the body, but it comes at a price.
The only (minor) problem I notice is that the upper left corner, less than 10 % of the total surface, doesn't heat up as much than the rest of the plate, but would have still bought it, had I have known.

Great little grill

published

I am very happy with this grill it is the best I've used. i'v had it and used it for over 12 months now. I love the simplicity of cleaning and it has a great fat catcher underneath. I would buy another one if this one stopped working. My brother has had the same one for years now and he and his wife use it daily. He uses baking paper on both surfaces and hardly cleans it!!!

Perfectly cooked steak first time around

published

We purchased this in late 2015 and ended up only using it for toasted sandwiches until we went to Canada for 10months. Fast forward to now, and we have used it again for toasted sandwiches but finally thought we'd give it a try with a chicken breast and a steak. The chicken breast was the most tender I've ever had and my husband loved his steak. He cooked it for a whole of 4ish minutes and it was perfect. After reading the other reviews I might give the probe a miss and just wing it. The plates were easy to clean just with paper towel too.

This product is not perfect and we can live without it

published

We had a Breville grill for over 20 years it was perfect in every department until it went off.
Then we bought another briville "the smart grill " .... it should be called the STUPID grill .... one month after using it the grilling on the plate was not uniform left side kept thing under cooked
so we replaced it after a big struggle with David Jones and Breville it took them 40 to get us a replacement ...

NOW the bad news is that the new one behaves like its sister and have a dead left part of the grill plate
so our advice is forget about it.

I have the Smart Grill Pro Stainless Steel BGR804bss when I was grilling vegetables - tomatoes (a lot of liquid), the griller shut off. It sounded like a safety switch??? It now does not work at all. Is there any way to reset?

For all temperature settings to operate I've noticed that I always need to plug in the probe first, even if I'm not intending to use it.
