It's quicker to grill your food. It has to be preheated and is in the microwave ages. The food always turns into a soggy mess and not edible. We bought one from Amazon after seeing it on TV. After several attempts and wasted food, we sent it back. It is the worst thing I've ever bought, and to give it one star out of ten would be too much.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
