Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL Review

One of the few affordable indoor electric grills that doubles as an open or contact grill, the Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL (starting at $50) garners mostly positive feedback from users. Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL reviews on Amazon applaud its top-notch design and slide-out drip tray that is hard to knock out of place. Reviews of the Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL on Wal-Mart are largely positive, with a few consumers carping about difficulty in the cleaning process.

The Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL features 96 square inches of cooking surface and measures 14x14x7. It is an 1800-watt appliance that handles paninis and pork chops when used as a contact grill, or veggie kabobs and fish filets when used as an open grill. The grill plates are non-stick, and the hinges float to accommodate foods of varying thicknesses. Like most inexpensive indoor electric grills, the Biggest Loser AG-1300-BL has no temperature control.

This is a decent grill at a decent price, and it comes with a one-year manufacturer's warranty. But if you don't have any need for a dual-purpose grill, there are other choices at a similar or better price.
