I own one of the older ones, and they're really convenient. My only real complaint is that the grill is not as big as it claims ("can cook 6 burgers at once") and isn't as easy to clean as they advertise. In fact, the cleaning is a pain (at least on the old ones). I think the new ones have a steamer above it? If so, that seems like it could come in handy if you want to steam some brocoli.
