George Foreman Grill?

Does anyone have one of these things?* We're trying to eat healthier, and we're thinking about getting one, but don't necessarily want just another addition to the useless-appliance graveyard.* Do you have one?* Do you use it?*

Thanks!
CJ

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I have one. * It was a gift, or I wouldn't have probably bought it. *It's one of the smaller size ones. *Handles about two chicken breasts - but they come out really dry. *Probably wouldn't be so bad if they were marinated first or something. *I hear a lot of people use them frequently - *I should give it a shot again...

I know they're good for grilled cheese sandwiches.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I've been doing the low carb diet thing for several years and use the George Foreman grill nearly every night. They work great but the non-stick surface is really thin and wears away pretty fast. Once that happens, cleaning the grill becomes a real chore. I just throw them out after about six months and buy another one. I think I'm on my fifth one now.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I was given the small version. It does a pretty good job. Great for single people. Grill some chicken in just a few minutes, add a salad and your in business. I probably get the bigger version at some point.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I swear by mine. It's a small two burger type.

Ham, swiss chesse, Jewish rye, butter spray both sides.

Teflon is thin though. So buy the cheapest and replace every 6 months.

I have a similar concept,hamilton Beach, from Sears, and yes it does come in handy, especially if you are cooking for one or two people.

I found those four examples by looking at your last 12 posts. I'm sure there are many more, but I have better things to do than sit around and point out the errors of others. It would be nice if you also found more productive ways to spend your time.

We started with a smaller one and graduated to a larger one. We use ours frequently also.

We've also graduated to a larger one with removable plates. This one has waffle plates, flat, and panini plates. We use them all.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

Add me to the endorsers. I found that I wasn’t too crazy about the meat prepared on GFG, but I use it for veggies- onions, hot peppers, bell peppers, garlic, sliced turnips,etc. Dip the veggies in olive oil first.

I put my meat in a skillet, but almost always make some veg on the GFG. Agree that large is best, even for one person, and get removable plates.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I know this is off topic, but you did mention eating healthier. Our Costco carries an older version of Jack LaLannes power juicer at a discount. Get past the huxsterism (the same as Foreman's) and you have an even healthier alternative. The downsides are you blow through the fruit and veggies($$$) and the afterjuice clean-up (insert sick pun here). If you are interested, buy one with a wide mouth so you don't have the extra inconvenience of cutting everything up to juice.

Re: George Foreman Grill?

I have a GE brand double grill, similar to the George Foreman and I use it regularly.

I marinade chicken and salmon and grill them, takes about 5 or 6 minutes.

The grills are removable and go in the dishwasher. I would replace mine if it broke; it's that good.
I've grilled hamburgers and steak in it too. Never thought to try grilled cheese, good idea.

I agree with Ha! Great for veggies, I especially love asparagus on the GF grill.
