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!
Amazing grille, love it so much! I absolutely love this grill. I'm single and recently had to make a dramatic diet change, I went from eating out nearly every meal to making everything myself at home. This grill is a lifesaver. No more 20-25 minute chicken or fish in the oven. 5 minutes for chicken, it's juicy and delicious cooked to perfection. Even less time for fish. I've grilled steak and asparagus also and it all turned out great. Easy clean up I usually just wipe it down with paper towel but I have put the removable plates in dish washer twice and came out great. I may get a bigger one in the future. Buy a George foreman you will not be sorry!
Love the Removable Plates. I really enjoy my new grill mostly because of the removable plates, but also because of the way it cooks the meat or fish. When I place the temperature in the right spot, it cooks perfectly. I love the red color because I have all my small appliances in red and it really dresses up my kitchen. I have really gotten compliments on it. Thanks to George Foreman I have had his grills in the past and now this one that I really enjoy!
Great little grill. After reading all the other reviews on this grill, I was totally confused. People either hated it or loved it. I decided to go ahead and purchase this grill. I had one of the first GF grills ever made, and I figured a new one with heat controls had to be much better than what I had!! I must say, I love, love, love this grill!! I have used it about 10 times since I received it, and our food is delicious. It's great because you can set the temperatures for all different kinds of meats, veggies, etc. If you liked the older grills, you will LOVE this one! And, the greatest feature are the removable plates for washing!!Thanks George Foreman!!
Easy clean, cooks well, space saver. We have been using this grill at home for a few weeks now. we have cooked chicken, steaks and veggies. We purchased this model because of the removable grill plates. It is a little smaller and a little more expensive than the non removable kind. thus far it has performed perfectly. It cooks food quickly and evenly. Is much easier to use than the outdoor grill (and I am very comfortable grilling outdoors). the best feature is the easy cleanup. Wipe the cooled plates, place in dishwasher, BAM, you're done. No complaints and I would recommend to anyone from singles to couples and families. We have a family of five and this small grill cooks enough for us.
Preheat indicator light. I was happy to receive this grill as a Christmas gift this year. I have noted an obvious error in the 'Care and Use' guide that should be modified. The illustrated guide for item 3 lists the green light as a 'preheat indicator light'. However, the section titled 'Preheating the Grill' refers to the green light as the 'ready indicator light' and states that this light will illuminate when the desired temperature is reached after preheating. It seems the green light is truly a preheat indicator light and illuminates when the grill is plugged-in and turns off when the it has reached the desired temperature.
