It makes the perfect quesadilla of any kind in minutes. You can use 1 tortilla shell and fold it over or sandwich 2. Clean-up is a cinch with either a wipe or a short soak with vinegar, then a wipe. The quesadillas this makes come out crisp on the outside in nice segments to cut up, and relatively quickly. Easier to clean up after than using a frying pan.
Gets very hot. Latch is somewhat flimsy. You need to press down on the top until the latch catches, and although it does make 6 wedges, it doesn't cut them for you, you'll need something like a pizza cutter for that. No on/off switch, stays on until it is unplugged.
Deep-dish pockets hold loads of cheese, salsa, and meat, and outer ridge keeps it all in for mess-free meals. Nonstick cooking surface wipes clean fast so you can fill your quesadilla cravings anytime. It is super easy to clean up, just wipe with a damp cloth. Creates pocket snacks for breakfast; simple and easy to contend with on a regular basis. Once the unit is fully heated, it only takes 5 minutes to make your quesadilla. It's a great space saver as you can stand it up on its side.
The "George Tough Nonstick Coating for easy cleanup" may start to bubble up and flake off. Latch flopped around and the whole lid wiggled. Doesn't seem to have deep dish pockets as advertised. Cheese and other ingredients spew out when plates are filled. Must press down in order to close lid and get a browned tortilla if over filled.
A few bells and whistles on this unit include non-stick plates, built-in drip reservoir, power light on/off and ready light, and El Paso Chile recipes. Toasts both sides nicely and perforates for easy cutting. Clever design, very easy to clean up. Makes some delicious quesadillas for a full meal or snack whenever you are in the mood.
Be sure that you do not use metal forks or spatulas as it could scratch plates. Flimsy latch, tends to get very hot on outside of unit. If you want a thick, well filled quesadilla, you will need to hold the lid down with a pot holder. Even with that inconvenience, this is still a useful product.
The 8" nonstick plates cook from both sides for quicker, more even results with 6 deep-dish quesadilla pockets that have enough room to hold all your favorite ingredients. Press seals quesadillas from the sides for cantina-style quesadillas. Within minutes you can have bean and cheese quesadillas and everything is sealed in great. Cut into triangles and dipped in salsa, you will savor these snacks or meals. Easy clean up, just wipe the plates.
Could get messy if you overfill the tortillas. Pockets in the plates could be deeper to accommodate for filling the tortillas more. Cannot load much into it without it spilling over everywhere. Cannot be submerged in water or put in dishwasher.
The unique plate design creates easy-to-cut sections that seal in flavorful ingredients, making each slice perfect for home or on-the-go. Great little appliance that makes awesome homemade quesadillas that the grandkids will love. Easy clean up when the grill is hot is best. Good for quick, healthy, lunches, dinners and snacks. If you like cheese this is the must have. Great also for snack foods.
May have to hold down top of the unit and press hard in an effort to make food crispier if desired. May not be able to stuff quesadilla with much; lid will not close if too filled. May be slow when feeding large family. Not easy to store, takes up a lot of space.
