Is the function .insertAdjacentHTML() considered bad form/outdated?

Is .insertAdjacentHTML() out of date? I used it to write my own function instead of Gil's function. This is my function:

function attachListItemButtons(el) {
    let htmlStr = `<button class="up">Up</button>
                    <button class="down">Down</button>
                    <button class="remove">Remove</button>`;
  el.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeend',htmlStr);
}

I just want to know if we typically want to use the method Gil used, i.e., using element properties as much as possible.

In the MDN page, it's not marked as either deprecated or experimental, and Can I Use? indicates that it is well supported.
