I bought this the last time they had this deal because it is the only type of grill I can have at my appartment. Works great. The infrared kind of cooks things from the inside out. It said 4 minute on each side for well done burgers. After trying it, it didn't look very done on the outside, but upon cutting into it, the burgers were done all the way through and were very juicy. It is not great for searing, but it does cook things very quickly and then end up tasting pretty great. Really great for veggies as well.
