I’ve owned this product for over 6 months and it is my favorite kitchen appliance. There truly is no other way to cook most meats. Only warning is if you are in a small apartment make sure your exhaust fan works. Otherwise the place will smell like you were grilling. So far its pretty much as described by other reviewers in terms of quality of grilling achievable. Mostly i grill poultry, lamb and goat meat and all have come out great. Unfortunately i haven’t had much success with fish, not because of the grill, but rather my skills at grilling fish leaves something to be desired. Update: i bought this item on december 9, 2014. Used it at least once a week for a year. Unfortunately in just less than the year mark my grill suffered from an electrical issue. While plugged into the electric outlet it did not come on. I contacted livart and they seem to know the problem and offered to replace it if still under warranty or sell me another one at a discount. I will take them at their offer because the livart grill is my favorite kitchen appliance. Btw watch your electrical bill, mine spiked dramatically.
Was looking for a good electric indoor grill w/out teflon.
I have cooked vegies, meat and fish the results are excellent. But the electric resistance does not have enough power to grill thick pieces of meat and needs a lot of time. I have improved the performance putting a small oven tray on top of the food in order to cook faster the food. On the other hand the cleaning process is very easy, you can put the grill and the water tray into dishwasher i’ve been doing that for long time and i didn’t find rust so far. It is small so you can store it easily into any kitchen cabinet. It is a great grill if you live in an apartment or you want to grill inside during winter time. I would suggest the following improvements for future versions:power selector. Increase electric resistance power.

Had the smaller orange grill and loved it. We accidentally dropped it and it broke so while looking online for replacement i found they now have a larger grill. It’s not tons more grilling space but now it’s perfect 2-3 good size meats. I still like that it’s not so big i can’t leave on my counter as we use it every other day. It’s great for steak, pork, hot dogs, hamburgers and vegetables and more. I can honestly say it’s the best kitchen small appliance i have ever bought.
We’ve cooked steaks, burgers, dogs, etc on it. I have found with thicker steaks i need to put a piece of foil over the top to hold in the heat so i can get it to medium as my husband likes instead of medium rare. There is a pan in the bottom that you place water in to help keep smoke from drippings to a minimum. It’s important to have good ventilation as i have found that i can set off smoke detectors in my apartment even when i have placed water in the bottom and i don’t notice smoke.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Best appliance I’ve ever purchased!
- After a Year of Use
- Love this grill, very convenient!!!!
We were skeptical as we are slaves to our outdoor grill. We have been pleasantly surprised at the way it ‘grills’ our food. I love the quick way it cooks steaks, chicken is nice and juicy. We love this product for those nights we get home late and don’t have time to get the charcoal grill prepared. We are in the south so we really don’t have cold winters but when it rains, this a good alternative.
Been looking for an easy-to-use/clean indoor korean/japanese grill for a long time. Mainly to grill delicate seafood, like squid tentacles. Just don’t go anywhere when it’s on.
Item arrived quickly and working as described. Very happy with the purchase.
Works good and is nice to be able to ‘grill’ inside the house. Just make sure that you always keep water in that tray.
Years ago i had a grill similar to this, but had a porcelain base. But it costs almost four times the amount of this one. So due to the huge price difference, i bought this one instead. Make it a little larger to easily fit one more chicken thigh or hamburger patty easily 2. Have two temperature settings, as opposed to just one.
Stinks up the house even when we are running the exhaust fan. If you are looking for george foreman speed, look elsewhere. Helps a bit if you ‘tent’ it with aluminum foil.
I had my doubts about this before i ordered but omg it is the best. So easy and food tasted like it was grilled outside over coals without the mess.
I cooked kalbi on it tonight. It tasted great but there was smoke throughout the living room. Also while cooking it suddenly had flames coming out of it. Just have to be careful and used outside if cooking with soy marinade. Cleaning the grill was hard but worth it. Next time i would use aluminum foil for the bottom pan. Water just evaporated and left a mess to clean.
The metal rods that keep the tray in place broke through the sides. Cooks food easily and quickly. Can’t cook anything too flimsy like broccoli on it, but fish, meat, and veggies cook well. Runs through the dishwasher. Good way to cook food without using a massive oven if you’re not cooking as much of a portion.
This was a christmas gift for my son.
There’s almost no smoke from it, very surprising. Some things i wasn’t expecting, there’s no way to adjust the heat and you have to fill the bottom pan with water with every use. Probably to prevent it from making grease fires or smoking. Other than that, i love this thing.
This is really nice and compact grill, if this is big size then i wonder how much smaller the non deluxe version is. Anyways here is my review after using it 1-2 times. Very easy to setup, very little to no smoke, decent heat (not super hot, wish it was little it hotter), the heating element is on 3/4 part of the grill so there are spots which are not so hot, which may be desirable to move cooked food to that area. Cleaning was easy, have to put the still grid in hot water for 15 minutes and with light scrubbing everything came out. One small note is that if you are cooking for longer time, please remember to keep pouring more water in the bottom pan. I grilled chicken, mushrooms, tofu. All came out really nice and juicy. My daughter had a few skewers (who does not eat much) so that is a good sign.
Good for indoor grilling (salmon, thin slice steak and veggies).
I use it quite a bit with good results when we can’t grill outside.
Many years ago i had a great counter-top broiler. I got the livart broiler and have been thoroughly satisfied with it’s performance. It cooks meat in approximately the same time as if i were using a charcoal barbecue, which would be my ideal (but i can’t have it where i live). The unit does a particularly good job and i would recommend it to anyone.
