I miss my George Foreman grill. I had this grill and used it all the time. It just sat on my counter and I used it for everything. Last time I moved, I replaced it with a grill that was 3 times the price. I Gave the George Foreman to my sister. This was a huge mistake. I never use the Other grill. it is too heavy and too big to keep on my counter. It has pretty much been in my pantry since I bought it. It works fine, but just very inconvenient. Since I cannot ask my sister for the George Foreman back, I am now purchasing another one to replace it.
Great grill. I have a fmily of 3.. This cuts my cooking time done tremendously! Fish, Hamburgers, thin filets and chicken Breasts cook 10-15 mintues tops. I have plenty of room to place 3-4 servings on the grill. This was a christmas present 2011. I have not experience any probs. easy to clean the removeable plates. Just wish the grease trap tay was larger cause it does get all the extra fat out of ur meats!! amazing!!
Wonderful indoor grill unit. This is a Wonderful indoor grill unit. I've had mine since this model first came out, about 3 years ago ? I use it several times a week for grilling meats for dinner. We LOVE the huge big waffles you can make with the waffle plates. You can cook a pizza in here with the deep dish pan, just like on the new GF Evolve. This one heats up very quickly and stays hot until you turn it off, unlike some other company's grills. The removable plates are wonderful. I can soak them in the sink or i can run them to wash in the dishwasher. Either way, they usually come clean easily. Only things that stick are sweet stuff like bbq sauce so just add that after you've grilled your meats -- not while you are grilling. Steaks are done in less than 6 minutes on High. Grill cheese sandwiches and Pannini style sandwiches, and quesadillas are great on here. I really didn't care for the omlet pans though since I'd rather use the deep dish pan for a whole batch of scrambled eggs at one time, but I suppose other folks might like the oval omlets. Only negative comment I have is that my bottom heating unit inside the grill has quit, after several years of heavy use. I am about to order another grill unit so I can continue enjoying this wonderful indoor grill. Get one and you'll love it too. We've had two of the small grills previous to this one, and sent both off with college kids. This one is BIG and great for cooking for a whole family.
Easy To Travel. I basically live on the road, and I dont like to eat out that often. This grill has made cooking in hotels extreamly easy. Its great for cooking everything; vegies, fish, toast... it takes a little time to heat up but when it does I can cook chicken in about 7mins. It is one of the best things I ever got to make living on the road easy.
I use it almost every day. I am a 19 year old college student and I use this grill almost every day, it is great for quick meals. I cook all sorts of food on it such as packaged burritos, fish sticks, chicken, steak, fries, quesadillas, etc. The only concern I have for it is it seems to be getting worn, as expected. the removable plates are useful but i only have one pair so i would need to buy more to utilize that function. cleaning it can be somewhat of a hassle as there are several small nooks and crannies that can get pretty dirty. the removable plates make it possible to get some stuff seeped under them like I have with stuff from the burritos. as well as stuff like grease that can fall behind it. all in all it is definitely worth the money.
Best counter top cooking device ever! I have had this grill for about 3 months and now I couldn't possibly live without it. I have grilled chicken, beef fajitas, hot dogs and hamburgers and even vegetables. I also use it to make grilled Rueben's and other grilled sandwiches. Just today I made chicken quesadillas, they came out perfect. Nothing sticks to the grill and it is very easy to clean. Usually all I have to do is rub a damp paper towel over the grill plates, but occasionally I will put the grill plates in the dishwasher. I definitely recommend this grill. The color is awesome too!
A breeze to clean. No matter what I have cooked in it, spilled in it or melted in it... It wipes clean with no serious scrubbing. Burgers in my house rage from 6 to 8 ounces and I can easily fit 4 on the grill at one time. Guess it would hold 5 quarter pound burgers. Love the fact the top raises up so I can grill thick steaks. Only downside is the middle does get warmer that the outer area and I have to move and flip burgers or sausage for it to cook evenly. Food does cook faster on the bottom than the top and should be flipped half way through cooking.
This Grill is Awesome! Just replaced my second GF Champ grill with this 5 serving grill and I absolutely love it! It cooks great and the teflon coating is hands down more superior than the old grills. The removable plates are a breeze to clean. I would definitley recommend this grill to everyone. I just love it.
Best Purchase ever! I am on my second grill...my first I used nearly every day for two years and it passed away. I bought a second grill and I have been using it for the better part of the last year. Saves me time preparing meals, I only make what I need at a time and best yet...clean up is quick and easy. I HIGHLY recommend you get the sponges for caring for the plates. Cooking times in the manual are right on for me (sea level) and I have some of the optional plates I will be trying out soon. I just love this grill!
Power disconnect. The grill and its cooking qualities are very good. The only problems I have are the clean-up of the grilling plate and electrical connections. After a couple years of use the non-stick surface sticks and the electrical connections come loose. Several times the connection to the upper heating element has come loose. Now the wire, being stretched to fit, has burned through and is too short to reconnect. It is repairable with a new heat proof wire and connection clips if they can be found and one wants to take the time to do the work.
Best Grill Ever. I have had this grill for about nine months. I cook steaks, sausages, bacon, waffles, pancakes -- just about anything I eat. The temperature control makes all the difference between this GF grill and the others -- more control. About the only "negative" is that the waffle plates are so huge that one plate can feed four people. Really! And I love it for that. Okay, the grilled cheese may be a bit "squished" but it is still delicious, and that just means I stuff it with other stuff, like ham, green peppers, etc. I love this grill. My friend borrowed it for a church potluck, and now has the exact model as well. It is contagious -- healthy and delicious cooking. I just wish there were more plates I could experiment with!
