Good cheap price for one of these grills. My son wanted one he could use as he uses his Granny's when staying with her. Figured at this price he can cook away and I won't freak out it if he scrapes it in the process! Have it reserved and picking it up this afternoon.

I am aware that there was a previous post a couple of weeks back but it shows that it expired so the deal is back on. And at that time I wasn't looking for one so hadn't noticed it. Wanted one today and stumbled across this, but still googled it to make sure it was a good deal.

Bought this last time for the same price around a few weeks ago. Have to say it is amazing and plus the size is just great. It cooks the chicken within minutes! And watch that fat dripppp!!
The best thing about this model is that it's about 1500 watts, it heats up quickly and cooks stuff quickly and properly, the smaller models are less than 1000 watts, you may as well hold your food up to a light bulb and use the heat off that.
thank you have just reserved one
The next one up, the 7 portion version is ~£35.00 at Argos or Amazon (Prime)
Brilliant kitchen gadget, great for toasties too, not just meat, great price and heat added.
Thanks - reserved one at my local store.
argos website is crap at the moment and will not let me check stock,thanx for posting will go to local store and check if they have got any
Thanks ordered for camping saves BBQ if raining
Ordered this a few days ago, I got reservation confirmation for collection 3 days later - as no stock at that moment. Went on the specified day from my text to collect item...I was told they couldn't get hold of these anymore from their supplier, especially at this price and that as a result couldn't fulfill the reservation. The assistant gave me a 10% off voucher for any purchase within the store as way of apology. I asked if I could have a quick word with the manager and suggested that they let me have the 7 portion one instead, as they had this in stock there and then and I had done a pointless trip with no warning. He said he would do that for me but I'd have to contribute some more cash. After haggling a little I got the 7 portion grill for £20, plus he let me hang on to the 10% off voucher. Just a heads up for anyone reserving this and expecting to get it. Good luck folks

Yeah it is a good feeling when it pays off. It certainly helps being polite and courteous to the staff members, as when said and done (90% of the time) it is usually not their fault that something has gone wrong with the order, but they are the ones that take people's frustration when customers show up. The assistant did actually say to me afterwards as I was leaving - thanks for not shouting at them and being understanding. I just said hey no problem, I knew it wasn't your fault and I got a decent outcome in the end.

Well done!

I have our 5 portion one home now and have to say it looks great. Perfect size for two toasties at the same time. Unbelievable how happy this has made my 10 year old! He is chuffed to bits. Can be stored vertically in the cupboard plus has a moving hinge to cook thicker rolls/muffins etc.

Yeah I gotta say, it's definitely a handy piece of kit and one that should get used often in most people's homes. Incredibly versatile. I just wish these models came with the removable plates for cleaning as that would be the cherry on top! Unfortunately the model that has that feature is significantly more expensive.
good find op, heat added
bought..thanks op
Thanks, been wanting a PS3 for ages!

​I had the model with removable plates and it's honestly not worth the extra, they end up damaged more easily, take longer to heat up, awkward to click back into place. much easier to give them a quick wipe while it's still warm
+'d, reserved last time, forgot to pick up and was out of stock! reserves and heading to town now! Thanks OP
No removable plates comment. Oops
got this last week only used it yesterday, cooks food dead quick but not 5 portion size more like 3 portion & the drip tray just stays on the outside or can it b fixed to the grill coz mine was dripping abit more oil when i cooked the burgers as just left the tray near the edge of the grill..... did i do wrong or is the grill wrong?
I have to ask. I have the smaller 3 piece grill and its is an absolute nightmare to clean. Does this one have removable plates? I love mine but swore I'd never buy one that's so hard to clean again.
Ordered. Thanks x
Heat
ordered thanks!
ordered
I've ordered and paid for in store collection available from Wednesday. Fingers crossed...
Cheers OP, managed to pick one up this evening.

Thanks to all that posted feedback too.
Just ordered thanks!
Reserved, thanks
damm just ordered 1 and paid via paypal, will notify when its ready for collection..thanks op was after one of these..
I ordered this last time out and I have to say I haven't touched my oven/hob for the last fortnight, except for cooking a pizza and frying eggs. I have to agree with others that say that a "5 portion" it isn't. I would also disagree with those that say it is a nightmare to clean though. All you have to do to clean it heat it back up and everything quickly wipes off. Be aware that you might not get the all black version. I got the 19920 version which is silver.

What is that just a colour variant or different specs?

camping? how you gonna get 1500w to this thing??????



Assuming the campsites they use have 16A or 10A available so they'd have 2.3kW.
Can't say that I need this as I've got a perfectly good gas hob.......but it's sooo hot!.....ordered for pick-up in store tomorrow oO
Thanks OP. Started uni with a small one of these and its served me well but the hinge is a bit lose so time to upgrade to a newer bigger one.
Bought this last time it was hot, they gave me the 10 portion grill!
Does it have dish washer safe removable plates like my current one?
