Convenient indoor grill, but not as strong as outdoor grill
This grill went beyond my expectations for a $50 product. If you live in an apartment and cannot have a real gas/charcoal grill, you should get this product. However, you should also buy a propane blowtorch to sear the meat, because this grill is not powerful enough to do it by itself.
I used this to cook yakitori (chicken skewers). Because it uses infrared heat, the chicken remained tender on the inside, and light tan on the outside. For comparison, when I tried to broil the chicken in the toaster oven, it came out dry.
As mentioned before, the grill was hot enough to color the outside light tan, but not hot enough to make the food meat golden brown, like the restaurant. I also tried roasting marshmallows, and the result was clearly inferior, compared to roasting over real coals.
You will need to use a propane blowtorch to brown the outside, after you finish cooking on the grill. Though, it's an acceptable trade off, if you don't have access to a real outdoor grill.
The Kushi grill seems like a great idea at first, but you soon learn that it is not a great cooking device. You can tell that they definitely cut corners on the actual grill surface, which food sticks to and burns!
It would have been much better if there was a non stick surface.
It's also a pain to clean all the burnt/stuck food and anything that drips inside.
As far as cooking performance, you have to constantly flip your food, otherwise it will stick to the grill surface. If you want to make a nice charred outside, you have to overcook your meat. Will have to keep playing with this to figure out the sweet spots, as you cannot cook with it the same way you cook with a gas/charcoal grill.
