Sanyo HPS-SG3 Indoor Electric Grill
Strengths: Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Very Good Results
Weakness: None really
So I think when you buy one of these you have to set your expectations accordingly so let me just start by saying this...This will NEVER compare to an outdoor charcoal bbq. Quite simply it wont, ever. Now that aside compared to the cooker this thing is amazing! I just grilled up about 4lb of assorted meat and the results were superb. All nicely browned on the outside with those little grill lines and tender in the middle and the flavor was mouthwateringly good.Setup and maintenance is a breeze there are only 4 parts to the whole thing. I was grilling within about 10 minutes of getting home from the shops. It takes about 5-10 minutes to get up to heat. Cleaning was equaly simple, about 5 minutes in the sink after the element had cooled sufficiently. The element seems to largely cool quite promptly apart from in the corner where the plug goes that seems to take a little longer.The other nice touch that I noticed quite a few others lacked was the temperature control actaully gives temperature bands in F. I am not a fan of devices with arbitrary numbering systems since it leaves you somewhat clueless to actual temperature.In terms of smokelessness it does a pretty good job, the element is non stick which helps but to be honest I think controlling smoke is largely the chef's responsibility. If you put something that will burn easy on the grill at hotest you will get some smoke. If you can find a grilling device that can do better let me know but I think at this point it just plain physics, stuff burns if you make it too hot!So if you are looking for a happy medium between a real outdoor bbq and your cooker this definately gets a thumbs up from me. Food is tasty, not outdoor tasty but still tasty and most importantly you can have your grilled food for breakfast, lunch and dinner all year round.

Strengths: Good amount of heat to give the meat great grill marks. Easy clean up.
Weakness: There are no weaknesses in this product. It's a great product for the price.
I am a caterer and I grilled the salmon right on the spot on my smokeless grill, where everybody could smell it grillig. When it was time to take orders on what everybody wanted, everybody wanted the salmon which we ran out of. Because all they did was smell it cooking on the grill. The salmon was awesome. I catered this party on February 13th for a Valentine's affair and people are still talking about it. I also got comments from my staff on what a great grill it is. What a great item to have in your kitchen or on the road. I am so glad I found this on the internet.

Strengths: Easy to use and cleaning is a snap
Weakness: None so far
Although this isn't a substitute for a charcoal outdoor grill, this works great for apartments.
Following the instructions: spray the grill surface with cooking spray and add water in the pan below and you'll have meat grilling smokeless. The adjustable grill temperature is a unexpected feature to have at this price.
All said, this is an awesome product for a great price!

Sanyo HPS-SG-3 200-Square Inch Electric Indoor Barbeque Grill
Strengths: Nice, big area to cook on, temperature control, fairly smoke free, easy to clean.
Weakness: Will smoke if temperature is turned up too high on fatty foods
The grill works very well for an indoor grill. The grill is nice size and the grate small enough so you can put smaller vegetables on it. We have only used it twice, but I think it is going to fit our grilling needs during the winter!!!

This grill is great
Strengths: Smokeless, powerful, easy cleaning
Weakness: So far, none
This grill is so great. I've used it for several times and just loved it. Adding some water in the pan and cooking spray on the grill surface and you're all set. The food is great, smokeless (very special for indoor cooking), and cleaning is a nice experience. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Excellent Indoor Grill
Strengths: Easy to clean, large cooking area yet stores easily.
Weakness: None yet.
This grill is very easy to use, smokeless and is much healthier than frying or charcoal. It's easy to setup, use and clean. Adjustable temperature works for a wide variety of foods. Great value!

SANYO Non-stick smokelss electric grill
Strengths: Huge surface area Very light weight Pre-heats very fast
Weakness: Not a non-stick grill
This item is surprisingly large in cooktop area and very light weight. Simple to assemble. All you do is plug in the temperature dial and plug into the wall. The only draw backs is figuring out the right temperature to cook your food. No exact temperatures on the dial. It's also not a NON-STICK top. The instructions actually tell you to oil it. It's pretty smokeless and not too hard to clean up. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an indoor counter top grill. It's also a great appliance for the money!

Strengths: HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I love my new grill!! I can be the spokesperson for this one. It cooks your food so delicious, juicy and tender. Minimal if no smoking. Cleans up so easy and quick, no soaking, just spray and wash. I have recommended it to everyone I know. I bought it at Fryes for $39.99. Best appliance I have. What else can I say, I love it and I am pleased!!!!
Sanyo hit me up!!!

Sanyo Indoor Electric Grill 17x12

Weakness: It's bigger to fit in cabinets even in homes
It's very simple to use and lot of space to cook for family dinner at one time (3 members), easy to clean and absolutely no smoke for fish, chicken and shrimp. You will not be using big grill after using this and it serve the purpose for this value
