Oh ok ta must of written at the same time! Such a barg!

I use mine all the time and so easy to clean too.. hot!

Not in my local Ruislip was only looking at them earlier

Posted at £23.99 just over a week ago. Must be reducing them to clear in whichever Sainsburyss have them. Great price if anyone can find the in their store. My nearest isn't a massive store but does have a few electricals, so will have a look when I'm in.

try having it scanned despite what the shelf label says,the last time sainsburys did this on these they were in many stores at the higher price but went through the tills at the offer

i have one with removable plates for easy cleaning ! bl..dy impossible to clean..forget about using the dishwasher and takes ages to heat up and ages to cook. i still like it though.

Denbi - When you have finished cooking, before turning it off, take a J-Cloth soaked in water and wipe the plates down with it (careful not to burn yourself). The water will boil as it touches the hot plates and loosens all the food leftovers while the cloth then rubs it all off. Far easier way to clean it than scrubbing when cool!

Discontinued model, hunted thus down at £23.99,they had one in Stock fairly close to mine but at £29.99. As a matter of principle I didn't bite, however, it's good too see it works both way. Hot from me

I would go for the detacheable plates model, its worth the extra £££ as it's so much easier to clean

I have the 5 portion GF 'Heritage' model which I got in Asda a few months back on sale at £22.99. It doesn't have removable plates - which concerned me at the time - but it's a doddle to clean! I just let it cool (unplug first...), then drizzle a little washing up liquid over the lower plates. I put the fat tray in front of it then drizzle hot water over and (using a cheapie nylon sponge scourer, the value supermarket ones at 5 for less than 20p) lather up both plates then rinse with hot water. Rinse again, let it drip dry for a minute or two, dry off - job done! It really only takes 2 minutes.
This is really one of my best used appliances, and I usually use it 'open', just turning the food freqently, rather than closing the top - I find the results are better that way. (Oh, and if anyone is thinking what size they should buy I would recommend going up, there are 3 of us and the 5 portion one is good, although I could even go up in size again if I saw a bargain!)

I have this one and it's definitely not a 2 minute clean, I rarely use it as it is a pain in the backside to clean out.

Re Cleaning: I just give mine a really good wipe down with kitchen roll after it's switched off but still hot (mind your fingers!) then it gets a proper wash down with soapy water (a bit like Lous Scotland and exopaul said above) about once a month. We use ours a couple of times a week and we've had it since xmas.

The one we had before this one lasted us about 3 years, but OH used to scrub it after each use and it knackered the non-stick coating so the kitchen roll method wouldn't work any more. Now we're only gently washing it once a month it's fab.

I did research at xmas and considered the removable plates ones so we could bung them in the dishwasher but the reviews weren't that great.

ill try that, thanks....still not they easy clean marvel they claim it is.

These are the easiest thing to clean if you do it right. Kitchen roll while how here also! Two minutes easy!

Also, use a water spray (I use an old plant spray) on the warm plates softens up the "stuff" and makes it easier to wipe off with kitchen roll.

Not one in my local store

They had a 7 portion one on offer for £32 though

Not such a bargain but argos have got the 4 portion version half price at the moment at £24.99.

I prefer to wash mine each time (it's the OCD, the OCD......:p) but I just use the soft spongy side of the scourers, not the rougher side. I also wipe the plates with the tiniest amount of oil before use (usually just Flora or some other veg, sunflower or rapeseed oil) which probably makes the plates even more non-stick. We've had it about a year now and it's used once or twice a week (particularly brilliant for sausages!) and the non-stick coating is as good as new. Everybody will find their own way of cleaning it but I genuinely find that it only takes a couple of minutes Happy grilling!

For anyone who has nothing better to do than trawl through comments about GF health grills and is considering buying one - we bought the grill and melt model which has the ability to raise the top to a 'melt' position for things like melted cheese, etc. It seemed like a good idea but just didn't work well (not hot enough when raised, so it didn't actually melt...), and the non-stick coating started to come off after a couple of weeks. Currys refunded without any quibble, and maybe it was just a faulty one we had as regards the coating, but I wouldn't recommend this one.

In stock as far as I can see...?

On the cleaning theme (yes, def OCD...) I forgot to add to my previous posts that if anyone wanted to buy the ultimate easy-to-clean gadget, it must be the Breville panini press. It has flat plates and we use ours for toasties if anyone doesn't want the sealed ones that our other sandwich toaster makes. It is also good for bacon and my son used it with great results for burgers. Once you switch off then a quick wipe with kitchen towel and then a soapy sponge is all that's needed - literally a minute and it's spotless again. Totally brilliant

No longer on the website... priced at 39.96 now.

Just what the nation needs.
