This is perfect my whole family uses it almost daily.
I love this multigrill, I have had it for over 2years and it still my family’s favourite way to cook. This is because it is the easiest and fastest way to cook from eggs and bacon, pancakes/waffles to easy healthy grilled chicken, toasties or dinner with steak, vegetables and even sweets. The temperature setting is always perfect, with the lid closed our food is steaming in it own juices while getting grilled to perfection and even sometimes topped off, effortlessly with the top plate in hover position to melt some cheese.
To finish off it looks amazing on my bench top.
Love it! love it!

Ideal Multifunction Grill/Toaster
After my Sunbeam sandwhich press expired, we looked around at every alternative with many being unavailable due to COVID shortages. We ended up selecting this one even though we thought it 'overkill' for what we needed. There was simply little choice.
This product has proven to be:
Well built and of sturdy, quality construction
Has an adjustable top that actually sits in place (unlike most others) and has removable and swappable hot plates that can be put in the dishwasher.
Its a bit more complicated. You have to switch it on, set the ti...

Useful but has design flaws
It’s wonderful that the grill has multiple uses by replacing the plates.
The knobs that adjusts the temp is placed where all splatters get to. And since it is textured, it’s not very easy to clean.
The top handle when pushed up makes your wrist very close to the hot plate.
The cord is short but it depends on you.
Lastly and this is quite irritating, the waffle plates ha a preset temp so as Delonghi’s customer service people suggest, maybe change the recipe if the one you’re using is burning too quickly.

Great product with a serious design flaw..
This is a very versatile product which does many things well . This has become an integral part of our lift since we bought it ..
individual controls are excellent and cleaning is fairly easy as plates are removable.
It’s been a year and half and the device works flawlessly.
The device looks premium and the features are excellent. All points are covered by other reviewers.
The biggest issue I found is the design of the handle. As it’s bent upwards( see pic). Your forearm gets dangerously close to the upper hot plate and can give you seve...re burn if you a not paying attention: The current design of the bend on the handle to support the top plate when fully open needs to go back to the drawing board considering the risk of burn . ... if this is rectified this device will become flawless in its usability and safety. The power cord could have a better shielding ..

Know better, choose better.
I love this machine. My husband makes his breakfast on this every morning. Bacon eggs tomato sausages. He's not a good cook but manages with this appliance much better than a frypan on the stove. So much cleaner. No extra oil needed on the nonstick plates. Removable plates easily washed and replacement plates are readily available and inexpensive. Love the sear function for steak and the open grill function for melted cheese open sandwiches. Highly recommended.

My Favourite Appliance
I purchased this product more than 8 months ago and use it multiple times a week. In fact, we have even taken it away with us on holiday!
I love the fact the plates are removable and dishwasher safe. This allows for them to be cleaned thoroughly, unlike other grills.
The adjustable temperature on both top and bottom is great, our previous grill did not have a temperature option at all. And the Sear function works great for steaks.
I received a bonus plate set when I purchased and I am so glad I did. The option of having 2 flat plates or 2 rid...

Great for making waffles with the kids
I love this product. Purchased it about a week ago and it’s been my go to appliance ever since. I have used it for making perfect steak (using sear function) and as a open grill to make fish on one side and vegetables on the other. It has two seperate temperatures for each side of the grill which is a great function. The plates are interchangeable and dishwasher safe. I brought the waffle plates and my son made me a nice breakfast today. Highly recommend!!!
Taking toasties to a new level
I would highly recommend this sandwich toaster/multi-grill. Super simple to use but allows far more functionality than typical sandwich toasters- I can cook a wide range a meals in this appliance from steaks to burgers and even melt cheese on open sandwiches!
Questions & Answers
I just purchased the DeLonghi *MultiGrill CGH1012D*, which it replace my oven!
However I have some questions, and I need help please:
1) TIMER - it increase only with 10 minutes, How I can increase the timer only with 5 minutes, or 3 minutes?
2) On which youtube link I can see cooking receips?
I also want to know if I can replace my toaster with this. I want to be able to grill eggplant and halloumi etc but also just cook toast.
I also want to know if it’s safe for my elderly mother. I’ve read a few reviews suggesting that the placement of the handle increases the risk of a burn.
You can use it as a toaster, however the lid does not always adjust to a level that would suit sliced bread. I would keep your toaster for toast unless you use thicker bread. For your other uses it i...s ideal. Im not sure about the placement of the handle feedback you've seen. We have not has such an issue and dont see the risk of burns as being any greater than for a similar press, although there is increased risk in comparison to a toaster. Managing the height of the press (to adjust to the thickness of what you are toasting) might be an issue for older people as it is sometwhat clunky.
Thanks for your answer.
Is there a way to lower the heat when the waffle plates are attached? Because of the high sugar content of liege waffles, the waffle burns too quickly. Also, flavoured waffles, is it possible to make? So far, I’ve burned flavoured waffles. Only ones to come out ok are plain ones.
Yes the grill has a heat setting. Though there is setting for waffles you can use any other heat setting with waffle plates on.
Thank you. I just assumed that the waffle plates overrides the temp control setting and defaults to 200c all the time. Thank you!
To @Dee&Tee Delonghi replied to me after 3 months. It must be very busy in their office. Apparently the waffle plate temperature is preset and cannot be change and Brad Smithers of Delonghi suggested that I change my recipe.
