In my experience, a grill pan really doesn't produce any more smoke than a frying pan.

IMO there is no indoor appliance that can recreate the taste of real grilled food. Not even those "grill pans," which are cast iron skillets than make marks on your food. Mine didn't make smoke either.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

I bought the Cuisinart with the interchangeable plates and I am very happy with it. I've done burgers, steaks and fish on the grill and pancakes, grilled cheese and French toast on the griddle. Everything turned out well. Of course, the steaks didn't taste like they were done outside, but they were good.

I use a forman, it cooks similar to a skillet except it drains, it produces less smoke than a skillet for this reason. It does not taste like an outside grill. Nothing compares to that smoke you can create outside. The forman gets typical grilled food (steaks, shrimp, dogs, burgers etc) cooked, but not "grilled" like you would expect, furthermore, I would not recommend cooking any steak on an indoor grill. Id probably rather cook my steak in a skillet than my forman after trying that a few times, but for steak and seafood I just go outside The forman is good for burgers, dogs, chicken and sausage tho.

If I were to get one, It'd be this one: DeLonghi Perfecto BG24 Indoor Grill Review at Epinions.com

It's more like a grill than any other I've seen.
