It’s a pretty awesome grill,quite heavy but it’s all about the quality with thisperfect for all meats , ideal for two people.
I can’t praise this grill enough. It heats up quickly, is easy to use and produces excellent results. I have tried it with fish (both salmon fillets and sardines), steaks, burgers, sausages, bratwurst and panini. Everything cooked perfectly. I would warn prospective buyers to check the dimensions, it is rather large and bulky, so needs a large area to work with and a large cupboard to store it in. This is only an observation, not a problem in my view.
Exactly what i was looking for.
Quite heavy but stores away neatly. Just love how non stick it is and it’s so very easy to clean. It cooks all food amazingly and the attachable drip tray means there’s no mess. I used to have a george foreman but never again this is twice as good.
This sage grill is an excellent product, just the right size and works beautifully. I have only given it 4 stars because the cleaning tool supplied does not fit the machine the pitch of the teeth is completely different to the width of the grooves on the top plate so is useless for scraping off burnt bits. Can only guess the tool was designed for a different model, so why supply it ?still an excellent grill though.
Updateafter several months of use (occasionally in the week) most weekends for mainly paninis and sandwiches and occasional meat/poultry have added 1 star. It is a great griddle and the height adjustment is very useful, we have a sandwich/waffle press that now only gets used for waffles still can’t give 5 stars for reasons originally stated and also a piece of round plastic trim has fallen out – okay doesn’t affect day 2 day usage but maybe an indication to quality and/or possible lifespan of item ?having read reviews (here and on other sites), we decided to order this and were eager to receive delivery and try it out. However, included document advised to register for access to recipes and tips, and we did this only to be advised that they no longer supply this. We then used the grill to find that the supplied cleaning tool is completly unusable having different shape ‘teeth’ to the griddle itself. May seem like two minor points, but making false claims about support as well as supplying an accessory that is clearly not fit for purpose (in this price range) has left us completely underwhelmed – consequently 2 stars knocked off.
Excellent grill, well made, heats up quickly. Used for bacon and toasted panini sandwhiches so far – no issues, cooks well, easy to clean. With the adjustable floating top grill, in my opinion, more versatile than some other grills and a reasonable cooking area.
No problem so far (1 month use)really versatile grill for multiple purposes.
We had a typical 2-sandwich toastie machine that died a death recently and this is our replacement. Chosen to enable us to include paninis in our toastie repertoire, we didn’t actually plan on using it for anything but sandwiches. In fact, so far, we have used it to ‘dry fry’ several things successfully (however my main angle is still sandwich-toasting. It is bulky (but that means that you can toast 4 rounds of toasted sandwiches at the same time (entire family happy). It heats up extremely quickly and toasts a sandwich in around 5 minutes. There are loads of height settings enabling you to alter the pressure, ‘squish’ applied to your sandwich so you could do a multi-decker or a skinny sliced-bread version equally efficiently. It is so easy to wipe clean: simple washing up liquid/water is all i’ve used so far (owned it for several months). When opening it fully, the lid handle only just clears the bottom edge of my wall cabinets above; you will need about 47cm clearance to swing it fully open or, alternatively, a different worktop area with no overhead obstacles. I have to counterbalance some of the previous negative reviewers:the build quality of my machine is, like all sage products, exceptional.
All you can say about this grill is superb best grill ever had.
I use this every day to cook healthy meals and it is brilliant.
This is a great countertop press/grill. I’ve been searching for a replacement for my australian breville press for some time, turns out breville in the uk is an entirely different brand and sage is the name used here. It heats up quickly, nice large cooking surface, good nonstick grills and easy to clean. My only gripe is that the top plate is a ‘grill’ instead of a flat surface so you can’t get a truly flat press for things like bacon, but otherwise its excellent.
