While reviews of the Grillex are limited, one comes from a trusted source: Good Housekeeping magazine, which asked an intern to try the Grillex in his dorm room. He says the Grillex was easy to set up and -- with a nonstick pan and no mess on the stovetop -- was also quick to clean. It comfortably held 4 pounds of meat and vegetables and, best of all, produced food that was delicious, juicy and flavorful. A handful of consumer reviews posted on Amazon.com are equally complimentary, with one user saying: "I was skeptical about feeding eight people, but if you use all the pieces it comes with, you really can cook about 4 pounds of meat." The only drawback of the Grillex is that when used indoors, the results lack the authentic char that's typical of traditional Brazilian barbecue. A couple of users on Amazon.com say they wish the Grillex came with more baskets and skewers (which can be purchased separately).
