    George Foreman Grills - opinions

    I've been thinking about buying a George Foreman Grill. Does anyone own 1? They've come down in price and i'm really tempted....

    Any opinions would be much appreciated.

    I own one of the older ones, and they're really convenient. My only real complaint is that the grill is not as big as it claims ("can cook 6 burgers at once") and isn't as easy to clean as they advertise. In fact, the cleaning is a pain (at least on the old ones). I think the new ones have a steamer above it? If so, that seems like it could come in handy if you want to steam some brocoli.

    We've got one. Absoultely ideal for cooking pork chops. Bit of a pain to clean though.

    the new ones are generally the same design, with minor improvements. basically the new ones are just a better deal than the old (more space and little features). either way, they are a great appliance to cook with. cleaning maybe a little tedious but its well worth it.

    as every has said, they're super convenient for cooking, and a pain in the arse for cleaning.

    i've also heard ambivalent reports about the lean-mean-fat-reducing efficacy of the foreman grill. although, personally, i don't mind good old red meat fat--it's good for your testosterone.

    I feel the same way; there's nothing like grilling all year round.

    I have one of the new versions ! I find mines easy to clean if you try and clean the grill when it is still hot right after your finished cooking it can be easily done, kitchen roll does the trick just watch u dont burn yourself

    the best ones have removeable grill plates so you can soak them in the sink to clean. that being said.... hamilton beach makes bigger and better grills with removeable plates for considerably less $$ than the foreman. check those out b/c you get more grill (bigger and more features such as a timer and removeable plates to make cleaning easier) for less money.

    I agree on cleaning the grill right after use when it is still warm. I have one of the old ones and as soon as I am done using it, I will pour some water down it and wipe the grill. Much easier to clean if you do it right after than if you wait for the stuff to harden.
