Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. This is sausageville. We drink beer and eat sausages.
I have a routine. I boil the sausages, then warm up my gas grill, throw the sausages on the lower rack. Watching. Rotating. Then I clean the grill. Then clean the stainless steel pot I boiled them in. It's an hour to an hour and a half process. It's tedious in my household of two to cook four sausages so it's only done eight or so times a year.
Saw the commercial, came to Amazon, glimpsed the reviews and ordered. 3 minutes prep to clean the griddles, 12 minutes to cook, 5 minutes to clean the gunk off the griddles and put away. Dear Lord! THIS is how sausages were meant to be enjoyed!
The only real con is no grill marks. However that is easily offset by a perfectly crisp skin around the entire sausage. No worry of undercooking, no worry of overcooking. And I don't have to watch it or worry about spurting juices causing a flaming flare-up on the grill. No standing outside in unbearable summer humidity or bitter winter chill. If ever a product were invented that I needed but never knew I needed: this is it!
Having said all that....
$99 for a George Foreman for sausages?! Ridiculously overpriced. It's a $50 item.
American company Johnsonville making an American made grill? Nope, this product clearly states in the manual it's made in the People's Republic of China.
But....If you're a midwesterner who eats brats, italians, etc the $99 price tag saves a whole heck more time and cost (natural gas, propane/charcoal) in just a 1 year span.
Here's to never again having to eat a microwaved sausage grilled a prior day. :)
Not for cheese brats!

I got this recently and I had been excited to put it to use. I got my favorite kind of brats, the cheddar filled ones from Johnsonville. I followed the directions and had my brats cooking. It said it would take about 15 mins, so I was relaxing as my food was cooking. I heard the beeps that told me my brats were ready but it had only been around 10 mins. I was surprised. Then I saw the grill, yikes. The cheddar had escaped and got all over the sides and rear of the grill and all over my stovetop. However, I checked the internal temperature and the brats were all fully cooked, so it did it's job.
When I took the plates off to clean the grill, it was a disaster. The cheese and grease had seeped under the bottom plate and there was burned cheese on the heating elements. Honestly, there was cheese and grease everywhere. I don't blame the grill, it did what it was supposed to do, which is cook the brats. I don't know if plain brats will spill grease out of the back but I guess I'll find out.
I gave the grill 3 stars due to the difficulty in cleaning beneath the grill plate, and also because I can't make my favorite type of brat in the grill. No cheddar brats is a real bummer.
But a couple quibbles...

I've used it twice, and the thing cooks from raw to 'grilled' in 14 minutes - AWESOME! However, the power cord is ridiculously short (likely due to safety standards) -- I had to plug mine into a power strip to place at a comfortable/workable position in my kitchen. My other issue is the 'done' beeps which are too quiet when sitting two rooms away with the TV on & A/C running - they should've used whatever my Kenmore microwave & range have, as they pierce surrounding noise. Cleanup is very, very easy. The bratwursts turn out PERFECTLY...
Finally, an easy way to cook brats to perfection .......

My family loves brats! We used to put them on a spit in our rotisserie until it broke. Then we tried all different kinds of ways to cook brats. It was never as good as the spit. I searched for an easier, better way than a huge rotisserie for just one meal. I found this cooker. I read all the reviews and decided to try it even though I felt the price was too high even on Amazon. I found one as an open box item a lot cheaper and it came on time and was wrapped as if it had never been opened at all. We ran it through the dishwasher so we could use it the next day. Read the instructions first! You do not preheat this cooker. Not at all. You attach the grease bin into slots in the front, lower part of the cooker. It sounds weird, but you will get the hang of it. You must always put a brat in the #1 position of the cooker. This is where the temperature gauge is. The cooker will beep when it is done by measuring the tomp of this brat in position #1. You can cook one to five at a time. They come out perfect! My family was so happy and I was too. No more dealing with a rotisserie or pans to cook brats. The clean up was easy too. I hand washed it once and we dish washed it twice. It is a heavy and sturdy small appliance. I did follow some of the reviews by making sure to have the brats mostly the same height. I smashed them a little so the lid would come down evenly. I also did not force the lid as to not break the clip. I was just really easy with it and it worked great. It will cook the brats in about 10 to 15 minutes (when thawed) as stated. No more boiling them, etc. Easy to use, and easy to clean. We are very happy with this purchase! I think this would make a wonderful gift for the brat lover in your family! I really, really, recommend this purchase!
Love this thing!!

What a fun product! We don't own an outside grill, as we live in a forest and are very afraid of fire... but we love nicely browned brats. What to do...? Saw this on TV and decided it was worth a try. VERY pleased... tender, juicy brats with a great brown outside. We only cook 2 at a time, so I decided to use the extra 3 holes to grill the onions. Perfect! Just add a little s/p to the onions and they were ready to go with the brats. Will make a great gift idea at Christmas, too.

It cooks and browns beautifully just as it advertizes but one must take sausages straight from the package and xfer to grill. If sausages are rinsed dry completely before putting in grill. Do not boil soak or alter sausages in any way .!!! Also the grill parts can be taken apart and washed just depress the buttons on the sides remove wash and snap back in. The grill is fun to use and really works.
Quick and Easy!

Best grill I have ever owned, I use it to grill all kinds of casing meats. Brats, kielbasa, hot dogs, polish sausage, chicken brats, bacon cheddar stuffed sausage links etc. As a heads up, try to use skinless sausage, the grill does not do well sausages in artificial casings. It really is pretty unlimited as to all the casing meat filled products you can use this thing for. Just be a little creative, if your food item is a little to long just trim off some, and place the trimmed end toward the drain end of the grill. Most meat filled casings have a natural curve to them. If your products don't, just bend them a little and they will work fine in this thing. Another nice feature is that these take about 13-15 minutes to finish cooking your choice of sausages, which means you can cook to a clock, and prepare other items to go with your sausages while you wait the 13-15 min. I paid full price and have no affiliation with the company at all.

I got this for my husband, I don't usually like Brats but he loves them. I was so skeptical, But he wanted it really bad! It is so cool!! It cooks them perfectly browned inside and out. I tried them and they are delicious! I thought it was a crazy impractical thing to buy but it makes such yummy brats and sausage I will be cooking them easier, faster, and more often now! Happy I tried it!
Grease gets into the base !!
by Kit B. (2 out of 5 stars)

The only reason for 2 star is poor design for grease run off from cooking, run off can leak to the inside of the base, especially if you cook chorizo brats ! and if not taken apart and cleaned, can lead to future stink and possible bugs.
I found if you take a piece of paper towel and fold it to fit across the hinge area,and enough to fit about a quarter inch or so under each of the cooking plates then snap them in place, I've cooked 22 brats in row and it stoped the grease from getting into the inside of the base.
