This gadget first came to my attention over a year ago.
From The Year in Robots: 10 Home Robots to Lighten Your Domestic Chores. (The New York Times, 12/24/2014)
My bottom line back then: Sounds as though there are much better ways to spend $130.
Today's question: Am I still of the same opinion?
Rabbi Jason Miller is certainly a big fan, as he shares in his 2/3/2016 HuffPost Tech overview, The Best Tech Gadgets at CES 2016.
How did no one think of this before? I saw a huge crowd gathered around a booth at CES and figured it must be a celebrity. No one famous was there, but I did see a Roomba-looking device loudly traveling around the grates of a barbecue grill.He concludes his brief review with an exclamatory I love it!
As for me, I'm more in line with a sentiment expressed in a 2-star Amazon review:
In the first place, if you need a machine to clean your BBQ grill you've got other problems (in my opinion).Speaking of which, you'd think there'd be more than 96 reviews by now.
Bottom line this time around: You can still count me out.
