I was about to mention that in my reply to Bill. The 8 serving one is right now 195 but regular price is 249.

However, the other piece was why George over the opti grill or vice versa, but we can sum it up to personal preference.

After researching, I answered my own question, sorry guys smile.

They do make a 8 serving one.  These are great grills.
