Never powered up!!
Best Uses
I purchased this from Lowes last week. Pressed power button and it never powered up. Tested button battery and it had proper juice. Seems really cheaply made. Check out Amazon reviews for this...not too good.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

IGrill Mini Bluetooth
Did not work
Best Uses
Would not power on out of the box. Replaced battery - no luck. Tried to get assistance from www.idevices.com. Website down with notice that it will be back in 2014 (its Sept 2014). After returning to Lowe's I checked the rest of the iGrills on the shelf - most had been opened and obviously hadn't worked.<br />How this product got the rating it did from CR is a mystery. Very disappointing - loss of credibility for CR.
