George Grills 'Em RIght! June 27, 2007 By Thomas Keating
I bought the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor BBQ grill and I love it! It's especially great for chicken breasts and fish fillets. Steaks would be better over charcoal, but they're still very good. The drip cup isn't that effective because the grill isn't on a tilt the way the indoor GF grills are. Come winter, I'll bring the grill in and use it without the pedestal. I haven't used the MP3 jack yet, but the speaker looks plenty big and well protected from the elements. Delivery was quick. Highly recommend!

6. George Foreman GRP99 Next Generation Grill with Removable Plates, Silver Metallic Finish - Reviews
Best George Foreman Grill Yet, October 5, 2004
I had an older model and used it from time to time, but always felt it never really got clean. This new version with the removable grilling plates was what I was waiting for. Both grill plates come off for easy cleaning in the sink. I washed mine in the dishwasher once too - both ways works great.
Worth some hassles, but be aware of them first!, November 8, 2006
Summary: a good grill with quirks that get in the way of it being great. It's a huge improvement for cleaning, and it has a nicely-sized 4-burger grill plate. It doesn't get quite as hot as the "old-style" models, and if you don't learn its quirks you can ruin perfectly good meals.
By: Telstar (Los Angeles, CA)
I have been through several previous Foreman grills, Hamiton Beach, DeLongi, etc.
This is the 3rd George Foreman grill I've used and I'm elated that they've finally come out with one that has removable plates so it's easier to clean! Most everyone I've talked to that has a George Foreman grill never used it much because it was a pain to clean but this one is a breeze...simply pop off both the top and bottom grill plates and toss them in the dishwasher.
Product UNSAFE ZERO stars.PLEASE READ>UPDATE 7/9/07 if you watched Martha Stewart they had to edit the show watch and see!!!, August 20, 2005 - Reviews By: Poweradio "poweradio" (Winter Park, Orlando, FL)
I rarely take time/have time to write reviews however, this item was an exception because of some very serious safety issues. I tried THREE (3) of the grills (because I thought I might have one bad grill) and after customer-NO-service at Salton acted like I was the first person to have this issue--I thought I was doing something wrong. After reading many reviews here and in other places I know this is a real issue for anyone who really puts a load on the grill for it to cook. It seems safe if you cook a hot dog or a little thin steak or chop but when you give it a real job, WATCH OUT! Again, when I read the postitive reviews I thought it was just me. Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, and a couple of Chops are not such a load. 1" cold steaks and Thick Boneless Chops are another story. So I guess you could say as long as you drive 60 you are fine but if you go 75 the wheels might come off and cause you to crash and burn----Please read on about my personal experence which might be unique, except, this happened to three (3) grills with the same unsafe results. While some might say it is my fault I overloaded it. The instructions were followed to the letter and the same dangerous results each time-yet-when Amazon so kindly replaced it with a CUISINART #GR-4, GRIDDLER it not only handled the load without a hitch, it did it in less time, beautiful even cooking and searing with no gray meat (like the Foreman and 6-7 min to cook a 1" steak not the 25 minutes on the Foreman (provided it doesn't overheat and burn out in the middle leaving you to cook it on the stove) with in my opinion awful results.
Next Grilleration, November 29, 2004
America's #1 contact grill got a next generation re-design and it's fantastic! I bought this to replace my huge (133") white foreman grill I had for about 2 yrs. that worked fine, but kept making clicking/popping noises which to me was annoying. The new one however does not, it's very quiet. First, it's smaller than my old one @ 96" but also saves some counter space. The apperance is sleek-- silver metallic finish w/ black accents. It has a floating hinge to accomodate thicker foods. 5 min. preheat interval that beeps several times to let you know it's ready.
This George (GRP99) is defective and could be dangerous., October 6, 2005 - Reviews By: Judy M. Wright
I have had this new George Foreman GRP99 Next Generation Grill with Removable Plates for 3 weeks and last night it shorted out and nearly started a fire. I noticed when I first used this grill it didn't heat evenly. I thought that I was putting the grilling plates on incorrectly. But after last night, I'm going back to my older grill.
Which is more important... cooking or cleaning perfection?, February 10, 2007 -By: Stuart Kaufman (Great Neck, NY USA)I bought this product to replace the older model, which I loved. Why? I avoided using the older one because it was such a pain to clean. It cooked everything to perfection, but it was messy and disgusting after dinner was over.
Then, I saw the new model. Eureka! After cooking was done, you could just pop the cooking surfaces off and put them in the dishwasher. Fabulous, right? Not so fast. The thing doesn't cook anywhere near as well as the old one. The back part of the grill heats up well, and gets its job done, but no one told that to the front part of the grill. That part appears to run much cooler, and doesn't do its part.
The result? I am still not using the grill very much, but for different reasons. It's easy to clean, but if you are cooking enough to require using more than half the grill, it's a pain in the neck, requiring moving the food around on the grill to make sure that everything is cooked evenly.
George: It's time for you to go back to the drawing board!

7. George Foreman GRP90WGR Next Grilleration Removable-Plate Grill with 5 Plates, Red - Reviews
I love this grill!!, December 31, 2005 - By: CapriSun Reader, mucis & movie lover (USA)
I heard a commercial for this about 3 or 4 times one evening, and I finally paid attention after barely listening to it the first few times. Once I saw that it had interchangeable, *dishwasher-safe* plates, I told my husband that I wanted it for Christmas. I popped over here to amazon and ordered it right away. It got here before Christmas, but since it was my gift, I had to leave it alone until afterwards ;-)
Disappearing Non-stick Coating, August 27, 2006 By: Eric J.
This is my second GF grill. I had a different model for over a year. The GRP90WGR suffers from the same problem as the first one I owned. The non-stick coating is really poor. It doesn't last very long, even with careful cleaning. My new grill has been used under ten times and the coating is disappearing from high spots in the grill surface even though I only use a soft sponge to clean it. In all other respects, this is a well-designed appliance.
Works Great, April 28, 2006 By: Douglas M. Hubbard "dougis"
My wife and I were looking for a panini maker and couldn't find one with removeable grates (that we wanted to pay for). We had a GF grill in the past (one of the smaller models) and were pleased with it so we decided to give this a try (despite some of the bad reviews). We love it. Set to high, allow to preheat and 4 minutes later a great sandwich. Used it the other morning to make waffles for my 2 girls, and they gave it a huge thumbs up (you do need to wait for the unit to heat back up after the first batch, but almost all waffle makers have that issue). Made ready to bake Chocolate chip cookies the other night and they turned out OK (should have used the toaster oven, but wanted to see how the George did). And of course, grilling meats works great.
All in all a wonderful purchase that allowed us to get rid of our waffle iron and replace our old George, while adding a panini press.
Returned it, April 9, 2007 By: Dave
I am a big George Foreman grill fan; I've used them for years. I currently have two Foreman grills, one of the small 1-burger models and one of the larger family-sized models. I love them both, aside from how big of a pain they are to clean. I've had them for years and use them multiple times a week to grill sandwiches, burgers, chicken, and all kinds of yummy things. Anyway, I ordered the G5 "Next Grilleration" because I was excited by both the multiple cooking plates and the ability to remove the plates for easy cleaning in the dishwasher. And the red color was really, really cool.
Best George Foreman Yet, March 12, 2006 BY: JustAnotherReviewer
I had the family size George Foreman grill for almost ten years when the non-stick coating finally wore off. I finally decided to replace it. I originally was planning to purchase the Cuisinart Griddler afer reading all the fine reviews, but while I was shopping I saw this Grilleration. It looks so much like the Griddler that I thought it was the same thing. It is almost identical in appearance to the Griddler, except in red. Some people have said the design is outdated, I think it's very retro looking - which is of course very "in" now. I chose it over the Griddler because it slopes, allowing fat to drain, like the other Foreman grills. I really like this feature. In addition, the grooves are deeper than the Griddler. It comes with an additional flat baking dish, and the two waffle plates and a steak plate. It also comes with a very nice cookbook, better than anything I've received in a kitchen appliance. We followed the directions exactly and had great waffles in 4 minutes. I'm not sure why other people had problems with it. I've never had a waffle iron, but this was no problem to do. I will keep this on my counter full-time, as I mostly like to grill meats and vegetables for meals. It's pricey - which is unfortunate, but it has already got much use in my kitchen, and if it lasts as long as my previous Foreman grill then I should get my money's worth.
An expensive disappointment, October 30, 2007 By: D. Gibson
I purchased this grill for $129.99 in June 2006. Within a few months, the non-stick finish on the Steak Plate & Grilling Plate began turning dull & the food began to stick. I was sent replacement plates & the new ones have held up well. However, now the red paint on the back half of the top of the grill is turning black & peeling off.
Read this review before you buy one.., January 5, 2008 By: S. F. StearnsI owned a George Foreman Grill previous to this one. The only thing I didn't like about it was the grill plates weren't removable. I was very excited to replace it with this one so I could more easily wash the grill.
I have NOT been happy. The top grill plate started sticking to food shortly after I started using it. Now when I grill anything, I open the grill and the food either sticks to the top grill or comes tumbling down and out of the grill.
The waffle and flat grill are worthless for waffle and pancakes. It doesn't get hot enough to make pancakes quickly. It takes 30 minutes to make 9 pancakes. Waffles have never come out in one piece, half sticks to the top plate and half to the bottom plate no matter how long I cook them.

Great for an ELECTRIC grill, March 22, 2005 By: E. Chuang
Before I get into this review, we have to understand the product we are looking at: a George Foreman ELECTRIC grill. George Foreman products are essentially useful variations of hotplates. In this case, the hot plate takes the form of a grill (with a stand, a dome cover, a large cooking surface with raised grooves etc...).
Pros and Cons of the Foreman Outdoor Grill, June 20, 2006
Let's get right to it:
If you like Foreman grills and you like ribs, get this puppy, May 6, 2002
Of all the Foreman grills I've seen and used (and I now own three of them), This grill cooks the most food at a time (even more than the Grande sized steel indoor/outdoor that's [money] more expensive), and in my 30 year old house, I've never had a power outage due to the grill. Those who have trouble with the Grill's electricity might want to look into the deeper problem they're having. It's NOT the grill.
Cooking times should be about the same as a gas grill. I cooked chicken, steak, shrimp, and veggie skewers for about 2 minutes a side (for 8 total minutes) per skewer. With the marinade I used, it tasted REALLY good. For steak, go 6 a side. Don't overcook your steak. Leave it Medium rare.
Chicken: 6 minutes a side. Just like steak. I'm talking about skinless, boneless breasts. I haven't tried drumsticks.
For steak, use salt, pepper, accent, garlic salt, and Montreal Steak seasoning on both sides of the cow. Don't use A1, don't use Worcestershire. I swear it'll taste a lot better than the 'burnt' flavor you get from steakhouses who think all it takes to cook a steak is setting it under a flame. Fire shouldn't be your only steak seasoning! And for those who think the Grill doesn't make the meat taste good...well no kidding! That's why you SEASON MEAT. You're cooking on METAL! HELLO!!!!
Washing this thing is a breeze, no matter how long you leave it sitting. I could leave the cooktop sitting for a week, and it'll still be easy to clean. It's easier to clean than the smaller Georges.
Some mention having to turn the meat over when you cook on this grill. That's very true, but you should have to do the same on the smaller George grills, even with the heating element on the top. Even in smaller grills, I ALWAYS turn the meat over halfway. That makes for even cooking. Don't be so lazy. All you have to do is turn meat. Nobody's asking you to cure cancer.
I still use the small Foreman (the family size) for cooking on thick steak at a time or about 3 or 4 chicken breasts. But when I'm cooking for several or if I'm cooking RIBS, I use this dome topped barbeque. It's totally Rockin'!
Drip pan is too small, March 4, 2005 BY: Anelyn G. Pimentel
My only problem is the "convenient" drip pan. Maybe i'm the only one who likes to cook more than one thing at a time; but anyways, the fat and juices of the meat quickly overflowed the tiny drip pan and ran out the bottom making a mess everywhere. The "convenient" drip pan is located under the hot metal plate and you just try and empty it while cooking. Luckily I was cooking outside!! The grill works surprisingly well and the food produced was just excellent. Be aware of this problem or you might not be so lucky.
Assembly and Use is a snap, January 8, 2004 By: Wyatt Allbright
Really Impressive all around. This unit went together with no tools in less than 5 minutes. It cooks great, has adjustable heat setting, a nice long power cord, lid caddy and plenty of room for burgers, dogs, buns... whatever. Very easy to clean - the cooking grill (just rinse and wipe the non-stick surface) and grease trap (pop in the dishwasher) both lift out w/no snaps or screws.
It's a KEEPER!!

I can't say enough - great product!, August 21, 2006 By: Clarissa Sarino
Where do I begin? I jumped on the George Foreman grill train about 1 year ago with this grill and I will never get off. It works like magic. I turn it on about 5-8 minutes before I am ready to put the food on it and it never burns or cooks anything unevenly. I have taken the grill tub into my kitchen in inclement weather and the house did not catch on fire or smell like smoke for a week. Indoors or out, this is a great grill. My husband is the typical 'man of the grill' and at first he didn't even want to go near it because it "plugged in and wasn't a real grill." Now I can't get him away from it. HA!
Great grill, May 17, 2006 By: Lysebetta
Great grilling for the price. We used this on the porch this winter. The only complaint that I have is the drip pan is not very large for such a big grill if they fixed that it would be perfect. If your cooking things with lots of drip (fatty meats or ribs etc) be sure to check the pan occasionally. Cleaning is a snap. Its well worth the money.
A perfect steak at 10 below zero!, November 18, 2006 By: V. DeLong (Anchorage, Alaska)
The first time I used the grill, it was 10 degrees below zero. I was absolutely amazed (along with friends and family) on how quickly the grill heated up in the cold and cooked our 1" steaks within 12 minutes total cooking time! I love this grill, and keep it just outside my patio door for winter cooking in Anchorage, Alaska. Now I can bar-b-que all winter long. Thank you for this amazing product! Vera DeLong
Don't waste your money!!!, June 17, 2003 By: J. Dale (Sunrise, FL)
I can only figure that the reviews on this grill were written by George himself. Or somebody that works for thr company. The grill does heat up fast and abide by most condo law, but the good points stop there. The grill does not drain very well. Most food is boiled or fried in it's own grease unless you tilt the grill in numerous directions while cooking. Not recommended! Grilled food is not bad, but in no way compares to taste of gas or charcoal grill. Cleanup is not as easy as expected unless you hose it off in the yard with a high pressure nozzle. Grill surface is too large to fit in most sinks for cleaning. Nonstick coating is pretty good at not sticking to grill surface. After a few months of use it will start to come off while cleaning. I'm back to violating my condo bylaws. It's worth being a condo criminal to have a real grill instead of an expensive hotplate.
Quite Simply the Best Grill I've Ever Owned ..., March 3, 2004
This has become one of my favorite all-time purchases ... and the fact that I got it at a ridiculously cheap price thanks to Amazon's Gold Box offer makes it even better. I was impressed at how easily it assembles (and with NO tools, mind you).
It's blissfully simple and elegant, and has a large cooking surface. And it's easier to clean than the portable George Foreman models because the entire grill surface is not only non-stick but also IMMERSIBLE. I've got my grill sitting in my screened porch. I just load up the grill, close the lid and go back into the house to do something else while it works. It's oh-so-convenient and all the heat stays OUT of my kitchen.Thanks to the large domed lid, I've even used it as an oven (again, without heating up my kitchen) for roast chicken and turkey. I love, love, LOVE this grill, and you will too.

So great to have a smaller George Foreman grill, November 5, 2009
By: Laura B. Hackney Tallahassee lassie
I have a bigger GF grill, but it is so big and bulky and heavy. I needed a smaller, lighter, easier to clean one. I sure got that with the GR10B. It is great. The size of the grill is big enough for a chicken kebab, or two hamburger patties, and preheats in just a couple of minutes. Because it is only four pounds, I can easily take it down from storage when not in use(which isn't that often), since I do not have a very big kitchen. I made some grilled veggies the other night and they were sooo good!!!
Good things come in small packages!, October 24, 2009 By: Southern Belle (MS)
At first, I was surprised by how small this grill was. I didn't think I would be able to grill more than one item, but I was wrong. It is the perfect size for 1-2 people. Two 6-ounce steaks fit perfectly. I would purchase a bigger size if you want more than 1 or 2 servings though.
Perfect Indoor Grill, October 22, 2009 By: B. Kritzer (Philadelphia, PA)
This is a wonderful grill for making one to two servings of food. It is very easy to operate and is quick to cleanup. The only issue I have is that the grill tends to slightly burn the outside of whatever is being cooked. Other than that, it's the perfect outdoor grilling alternative.
not happy with new style, December 1, 2009 By: dad2 dad2 57 (Oregon)
I have 3 George Forman Grills thru the years... This last one I bought cooks hot in the middle and warm on the sides.. the grease runs off and it collects on the underside of Grill, and If you dont turn it upside down you dont see the gunk it collects...just not happy with model
Love Love Love this item!!!, November 14, 2009 By: dg
This is the best thing I have ever bought! It is small so it is great for one person - and I"m sure it would work for 2 people as well., And, it cooks my meat in under 5 minutes. Easy to clean and, I just can't believe I have lived so long without this grill. So much easier and faster than using a conventional oven. And, you can't beat the price. If you want something to help you eat more healthily and that is SO convenient, you should absolutely buy this product........I would give it 10 stars if I could.
great for singles, December 19, 2009 By Brant McClure
If you live alone, or just eat alone, there is no reason to spend a lot of money on a large George Foreman grill, since this one will work just fine. Heats up quickly and is really easy to use. Plug it in and you're ready to go. If you're just looking for something to cook burgers with, this does the job. Lots easier and much quicker than doing something on the stove. I use it a lot more than I thought I would. Wonder how I lived without it, actually.
I Wonder....., December 5, 2009 By: Demolition Man "Carl" (Kendwood, MI)
I'm on my 3RD grille. As a single person it works great, better than dirtying up the stove and a bunch of pans.
Could be better...., December 19, 2009 By: Mary Roper "Anachronism"
I bought this grill based on other reviews. In retrospect, I should have paid more attention to the problem of cleaning the grill. I would rate it higher if the grill surfaces were removable for cleaning. It does an adequate job of grilling, and is perfect for one or two people. It is small enough to stay on the counter. Sometimes I have found that the grilling temperature is too high for some items, and there is no way to adjust.
poor cooking, December 10, 2009 By: rev4321 (Missoula, MT)The top grill surface consistently (always) burned whatever was cooking well before the bottom surface was finished cooking. So I would have to open the grill and turn the burger/chicken/Panini halfway through cooking. That really defeats the purpose of having one of these grills.
Also this one is so small you cannot get two of anything on it. It is a single serving grill (that burns the top)
I like the idea of the grill and since it got so many positive reviews maybe mine is defective...
I would look for a higher end grill.

10. George Foreman Family Size Plus Grills - Reviews
c'mon folks, it ain't THAT good!, November 4, 2002
By: Eduardo Nietzsche
...though it ain't THAT bad, either!
Pros: quick, easy, no-brainer way to cook, at a very appealing price. Cleaning is easy: let it cool, then pour hot water over it and wipe down with some paper towels. The plastic cleaning utensil supplied is useless unless you use it while the grill is still quite hot, which puts you at risk of burning yourself.
Cons: the drip tray needs to be bigger...it can be pretty messy having to move the full one out of the way and put the empty one in place.
If you are cooking more than one batch at a time, you will need to clean off the gunk on the grill in between batches, or else cooking time and evenness will suffer greatly.
Despite its double-heating-surface design, the bottom surface is much hotter than the top surface, so you WILL need to flip your food, especially if you're grilling anything thicker than say half an inch (chicken breasts, steaks, etc.).
The only way to achieve the nice browned/charred lines you see in the pictures is to apply addtional pressure to the grill from the top so that the meat will be pressed more tightly against the heating surfaces...this was easy for me since I use it on my balcony floor, so I just put on (shoed) foot on top of it.
There needs to be an on/off switch, so that you don't have to plug/unplug the darn thing every time...what a pain! A "ready" light to tell you when the grill has been preheated enough would also be nice.
The recommended cooking times on the cookbook were often way, way off...which means you have to fiddle around for yourself.
While food grilled this way is still much better than what you get from a microwave, and equal to a conventional oven, it still is not anywhere in the same class as a charcoal or gas-fired grill.
In a nutshell: buy it for the price, speed and simplicity, but don't expect much more than that.
It's slowly replacing my oven!, March 2, 2002
I had wanted to get this grill for awhile, but was still a little leery of its merits. I finally bought it anyway, and so far, have been loving it! I anticipate that during the summer it will replace my oven.
I cook a lot of chicken, either in the skillet, or in the oven. With this grill, you don't have to worry about turning the chicken, watching it, etc. All I really do it watch the clock. The first night I had the grill, I made salmon fillets, and they turned out great.
While I love the grill so far, there are a few things to watch out for. The first time I cooked chicken, I overcooked it..you kind of need to play around with the times in the booklet enclosed with the grill. I also found that I needed to push the grease tray farther back (closer to the grill) than I initially thought. Also, it does get quite smoky, so it would probably be most ideal if your kitchen had some kind of window.
With cleaning, you really do have to do it while the grill is still warm, or it makes it a lot harder to clean off.
I've barely used my oven since getting this grill..in the summer it will be great not having to heat up the whole house.
Cooking is easy and tasty with George!, November 20, 2001
I bought the George Foreman grill as a joke for my husband (it DOES say "Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine" on it), but we used it for three weeks solid after it arrived. The reason? It's EASY, and the food turns out really tasty!
This particular model is big enough to cook several portions of meat at a time -- it cooks from the top and bottom all at once to cut your cooking time down to mere minutes! The grill is tilted and comes with a trough so that all excess fat is drained away from your food. Pretty nifty! It's also fairly easy to clean up -- you just wipe down the grill and throw the trough in the dishwasher.
We've used the grill for chicken breasts, Boca Burgers, regular burgers, pork chops, steaks, and even bacon strips (it's GREAT for avoiding a bunch of messy bacon grease). It cooks even frozen meat in a relatively short period of time, and it cooks it thoroughly. It's easy to throw something on the grill, sprinkle some seasonings on it (BAM!), and let it cook for a few minutes while you fix the rest of the meal. It is hard to overcook things, and it's fun to have grill-lines on your food.
It took me awhile to believe the hype about the George Foreman Grills, but they are easy to use and deliver good results. In fact, this might be a good way to introduce your older children (12 and up) to rudimentary cooking. The George Foreman grill would be great for people who don't have a lot of time to cook & clean, who aren't yet confident cooks or don't have a lot of cooking experience, or for anyone who wants an easy way to make a tasty meal!
So long, but no thanks for the fish, February 5, 2005
You know how you go through an infatuation period with a new kitchen appliance? Then it gets put in a storeroom and falls out of your life like an old boyfriend or girlfriend. It happened to our pastamaker, our ice-cream maker, but I don't think it's going to happen to our George Foreman grill. I really think it's going to occupy prime kitchen counterspace forever.
take it from the meat guy, July 18, 2001 By: rick simpson (Reno, NV)
I work at a butcher block at a major grocer. One of my suppliers brought me one of these grills to use for demo cooking. My first thought was "Yeah, right. I can kill this in a week." That was 19 months ago, and its still going strong. Since then, I've bought 5 of this very model for myself, my kids, and my parents. A no-nonsense appliance. Best thing since the toaster.
Food as GOOD as any RESTAURANT!!, May 11, 2002
I wish I could give the George Foreman grill 50 stars....... I originally got this as a gift from my mother. I'm an entertainer and am on the road a lot, but she knew that when I was here I cooked for myself, my grown foster son and his two kids.
What a great gift! This is one product that EXCEEDS the promises made by its advertising. There are a couple of reasons why you should order this grill immediately...and realize this is coming from someone who is NOT a professional cook (in fact, I'm a professional ventriloquist...and I'm not kidding...check my reviewer's profile):
1)COOKING EASE: All you do is lift up the top, plop the food on it, and the cooking is underway.
I've used this grill to cook grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers, veggieburgers, steaks, etc. Chicken comes out sublime. You can slit a hotdog or sausage in half and it grills beautifully. So do vegetables.
I also now like two things I never liked before due to the grill. On the advice of a local health food store, I cooked fish marinated in a fresh Italian dressing on it. I don't like fish..and this was GREAT! I also marinated boneless pork chops (also not my favorite) in Italian dressing and used it on the grill. In both instances the grill cooked the fish/meat evenly, quickly, and excess marinate was grilled off so I had truly juicy, quickly made, absolutely delicious food.
This is the BEST investment you can make for a modern-day kitchen. It's so easy you can teach older kids (fifth, sixth grade) to cook on it. Again, this is even better than it's advertising says it is. A MUST to own and great to gift (I can attest to both of these claims!).
Quick & Easy, March 29, 2006 By: Marianne K. Mak750 (Terre Haute, IN)
I have owned this George Foreman grill for a few months now and have used it quite a bit. It's small enough to grill for one and big enough to grill for four. I have followed a few of the recipes included and the meals are very tasty. I only use HALF the black pepper suggested in his recipes because he really likes his black pepper much more than I.

I've had the George Foreman Grill for about a month now, and generally speaking I am very pleased with it. It's satisfying to see all the fat drip to the bottom tray when cooking. I'm a vegetarian but cook meat for my kids, and it feels good to be able to provide them with meat that has less fat. I like the style of the griller. It looks sleek and modern and fits into the kitchen decor. It cleans relatively easy. It heats up okay and maintains a hot steady heat. We have cooked a variety of foods in it now and the results have always been excellent. On the negative side, watch out that you don't burn your hands on the black plate that you can see on the side when the grill is closed. (I suppose this can be said of most grills). Secondly, make sure you keep the power cord away from the back of the grill when cooking. A little device to prevent the cord touching the grill when it is hot would have been nice. Maybe next model, eh George. My wife and I spent a lot of time checking out the different grills available, finally settling on Georges. We are not disappointed. Highly Recommended.
Great idea but disappointed!!!, January 8, 2004 By: A Customer
I am on my second GF grill and that is where it ends!! I love the idea and it's a great and fast way to prepare meals but I am going to have to find another brand with a better reputation for their non-stick surface, hopefully with removable plates and just a better design for the grease drippings.
Now I am on a mission to find something to take its place, hopefully I have better luck this time.

11. George Foreman GRP46P 72-Square-Inch Grill with Nonstick Removable Plates - Reviews
Mess maker, November 13, 2009 By:Ige Gustavson (Denver)
won't drip into the drip tray, instead all the grease wraps around the underside and drips all over the counter. cooks fine, but takes twice as long to clean up the mess as it takes to cook. tried to get ahold of the company and they offered no help whatsoever. won't buy again, even tho i loved my original model (which i can't seem to find anymore).
Went from good to bad to worse, September 8, 2009 By: Pcpro
Was looking to replace my older foreman grill that died after 2-years, most of the new medium/large foreman grills are 72-square inches, a few are 84-inches and larger and twice the price of this one. This grill is listed as 1000w and cooks meats, fish, pork, hotdogs perfectly, only small issue is sometimes bread or fish will stick to the surface, lightly use non-stick spray on the grill beforehand to avoid it.
Giant puddles of grease on my countertop, September 8, 2009
We got this grill to replace an older model Foreman Grill (with no removable plates) that had finally given up the ghost. It's a little small, but cooks most things just fine, with one glaring, horrible exception: BACON. The few times I've cooked bacon on this grill, I've had to deal with an enormous puddle of hot grease that stubbornly refused to flow into the drip try. After some careful drip tray monitoring, I can only assume that the grill's removable plate design creates alternative channels to help hot bacon grease flow onto my countertop, instead of into the drip tray. Thus leaving me with the entertaining chore of wiping up grease from all over my kitchen countertop and from the bottom of the grill itself. So if you choose to buy this grill, DO NOT COOK BACON ON IT. Unless you need to grease up your countertop.
love this grill, January 30, 2010 By: Sue G. Munoz (Brookshire, TX USA)
love this grill, it is so easy to clean compared to the one I have. It cooks fast and we are so glad we decided to buy this one. If anyone needs a grill this one is a geat price and is just the right size.
I love this grill, January 30, 2010 By: Louise M. Choate
It's a perfect size. Heats up well and really doesn't stick. I can take out the plates and clean. I also bought the speical scrubber/sponge which I used on messy melted cheese.
george foreman model# GRP46P, January 27, 2010
By: William A. Lamar "ex-truck driver" (Keytesville, MO USA)
This is my 3rd george foreman grill. They have all been good. Each one has been a differant model so we will see if it is as good as the other two. I recomend them for fast cooking with less grease.
Cooks well, but messy, January 12, 2010 By: Cuthien (TX, USA)I got this as a gift for Christmas and was extremely excited to use it. However, upon use, we got grease everywhere- there was no drip tray included even though it was supposed to come with, nor was there a spatula. So far, not a great start.

12. George Foreman 360 Electric Nonstick Grill with 5 Interchangeable Grill Plates - Reviews
Be careful..., December 30, 2008 By: CD (Las Vegas, NV)
I have had 3 Foreman grills over the years, first I got the Champ for college, then I moved up to the Next Grilleration, and now its on to the 360. The 360 has really stepped it up a notch. The multiple removable plates make this grill the one to have I think. I have made a massive omelet and it turned out perfect. I made quesadillas and they turned out perfect. I made chicken and once again came out perfect and had the classic good amount of drippings. Every plate worked like a charm and cleanup was so much easier. than the previous models i think. I look forward to using this grill for years to come!
not as good as earlier Foreman grills, January 1, 2009
By: E. A. Jones "movie buff"
I've used and loved Foreman grills for years. I had one of the first generation grills and then replaced it with one that had removable plates. This 360 version is my third Foreman grill, but it is by far the worst of the three, although there are still some good points to it.
This grill is amazing!, November 26, 2008 By: S. James GRILLMASTER (Chicago, IL USA)
COOKED A WHOLE FROZEN PIZZA FASTER THAN I COULD IN A TOASTER OVEN. I MADE PERFECT QUESIDILLA POCKETS CRISPY ON THE OUTSIDE AND GOOEY ON INSIDE. AND TODAY I MADE BURGERS AND WATCH THE YUCKY FAT DRAIN OFF. I LOVE THIS THING! P.S. MY STICKER CAME OFF JUST FINE!
Get one..., November 26, 2008 By: S. Melgar
It is worth every penny! I wanted the latest from George because I know that it knocks out the fat and thought I would give this 360 Grill a shot. Now i'm cooking so much more right in the grill...I dont even take it off the counter. Its like a one stop shop. I didnt notice the adjustable angle at first, but once i looked at the manual i thought what a clever feature...it flattens out so that you can griddle or make pizza on the grill (I have not made a pizza yet, but cant wait to get creative!)
A grill, not an oven, January 3, 2009 By: Rex Kullmann
I'm going to get all my all my gripes out of the way first. Several reviewers have already talked about the annoying sticker. I pulled mine off with my fingers and used Goo Gone to get the remainder.
Would Have Been 5 Star If Not For The Ridiculous Sticker, December 3, 2008
I too was so excited to get this grill and cook up something for dinner the day I got it. Unfortunately, there is a paper plate sized sticker affixed right to the top of this unit that clearly states to remove before use. The sticker did not come off easily at all. Just as you start taking it off it rips so you move to another section and start peeling and it rips again leaving sticky gooey glue behind that is very difficult to remove. After two hours, and using several different things to lift the stickiness we were finally able to use the grill. We made quesadillas and they were awsome! I can't wait to make pizza and to grill up some steaks. All around the grill itself is fabulous, but the person who decided to slap that huge sticker on there should be forced to remove every one from these grills themselves.
Great Grill but be carreful w/ the sticker!, December 8, 2008
I am pleased w/ the grill that I purchased. It does a great job grilling meat and vegetables, paninis, sandwiches and baking pizza. It is really easy to exchange the plates and it is very easy for cleaning. I am very impressed with the non stick plates, it works really well with grilled cheese. The inclination angle feature is very helpful to get the fat out. Two things I did not like which avoided it to receive 5 stars from me:
Great grill. Read the manual first., December 20, 2008
I just got my George Foreman 360 and I was very surprised that the chicken breast were cooked through in so short amount of time. I kept cutting off pieces to make sure there was no pink uncooked meat b/c I couldn't believe how fast they were done. This is my first GF Grill and I can't wait to try more recipes.
Huge Cooking Surface, Low Fat, Easy Clean up - What's not to like?, December 23, 2008 BY: A.M.Boughey (Rochester, MN)
UPDATE - added January 2nd 2009
1) Huge cooking area, I mean big! You can do all the meat together not a piece at a time like on smaller models
2) Removable plates - the BEST improvement they made on previous models is carried over to this model, clean up is a breeze.
3) Slide temperature control, older models were either on, or off - sometimes it was difficult to get that thick steak "just right" now you can grill to order!
4) Nice stylish modern design - I just threw that in as a plus, but it does look cool, and is also a conversation piece. Overall 5 stars, get one, cut the fat, cut the clean up time, keep the taste!
Get one...heat the sticker first with a hair dryer., December 13, 2008
Great product. Best one I have used yet. The sticker is an issue after reviewing the other reviews. Here is the trick. Heat the sticker with a hair dryer first, catch an edge of the sticker with your finger nail and pull slowly. When heated just right the sticker simply pulls free. If it doesn't, heat the area your pulling on until you feel it release and continue until you remove the entire sticker with no residue left behind. I heated the entire sticker first then grabbed the edge, and continued to heat the sticker from where I was pulling first. Sticker came off easily in one pull. The one thing I was disappointed in was the product packaging. The shipping box was perfect but the packaged box had evidently been wet and had come apart. I can't believe that they would ship what was said to be new to arrive in this kind of condition. This was a gift to a family member and kinda of embarrassing to explain. The product however is fine and would highly recommend it.
Several Design Flaws, January 1, 2009 By: Jeff A. Fisher
I too had an issue with the HUGE sticky label that was difficult to remove. The power cord was too short constraining choice of cooking area. The handle jutted out too far making it impossible to open under standard cabinet clearance. When you close it the platters do not meet correctly unless jostled into place.
Big Red, April 17, 2009 By: JonBoy (St. Paul, MN)
I purchased this grill in December.
George Forman 360 grill, January 12, 2009 By: Sheila K. Long (Aline, OK)
I cooked several items like steak, hamburgers, quesadias .. none got grill marks or even got brown. Hard to eat grey food. Does not get hot enough to make appealing foods. Waste of money .. sent it back.
WARNING!!! DANGEROUS!!! DON'T BUY!!!, February 5, 2009
I, too, wanted this grill with the removeable, washable plates. What a mistake! It's junk! I only used the thing twice and the plate fell to the floor both times. Then my husband used it, same thing happened only the plastic handle broke off for him. It's dangerous and now useless. Oh I'm sure I can contact GF for a replacement plate, but that won't solve the problem of the next one falling off too. And of course it can't be returned because not only is it too late but I trashed the original box which is required for return. I'm very upset with this purchase. If it were possible, I'd give it -5 stars! DON'T BUY!!!
A Brilliant Addition to Any Kitchen, December 25, 2008
The removable plates are sheer genius. For anyone wondering, both the top and bottom plates release, allowing you to clean top and bottom without the unit attached. It does have far more space than any previous foreman model I've seen, and the unit has a very sleek, modern design. Having made Christmas morning eggs, they were cooked to perfection using the baking pan. I can't wait to see if it will do french fries.
Lack of recipes is a legitimate complaint, but the manual does list cooking times for a lot of things. From there, its presumable that you need to find your own recipes beyond a few given, which is fair. When you buy a stove, you don't expect them to show you how to make an oven roasted turkey. Also, many websites offer guides and tutorials, so they aren't exactly hard to find.
All in all, the Foreman is a great buy, though Amazons price may not be the lowest you'll find... Highly recommended, and the faults mentioned above are quickly ignored. On a final note, the handle makes opening the unit easier, but also requires more space than you may realize. Anyone with low kitchen cabinets above their counter may want to consider if they can actually open it.

George Foreman-FAMILY SIZE, February 1, 2010 By: C. Martin
I bought this for my mother. It is our family's first George Foreman grill, but I couldn't imagine what use the regular size one would have unless you are living alone and cooking for just yourself. Within a few days after buying it my family has already made bacon, chicken, and steak on this grill, and it's been great.
washing, December 23, 2009 By: P. AlbrechtWe like it - it is what we expected. Not fancy. Cooking on is not complicated, but is nothing special as well. Worse part is washing it - it is not small and does not fit nicely in the sink, so cleaning is hard work. I am not disappointed - I was looking for the cooking surface.

14. George Foreman GRP72CTB G-Broil Electric Nonstick Countertop Grill, Black - Features
one of the easiest appliances to use and clean, February 4, 2009
We previously had a smaller george forman grill with a little blue dome on top for 'bun heating'. It was hard to fit food for 2 on it. Despite that, we pretty much wore it into the ground and decided to get a larger one, specifically this model because we desperately needed removable plates and the extra space.
Nice grill, May 18, 2009 By:Vee (NY)The George Foreman CRP72CTB G-Broil Electric Nonstick Countertop Grill is fantastic. The food grilled on it always comes out nicely grilled and tender with no uneven cooking. Most cooking times are under 10 minutes which is great. Most of the grease from the food drips down into the drip tray so the food comes out moist and tender without being greasy.
The clean up is excellent. The plates are removable so it's easy to take them to the sink to be washed. The grill is really nonstick unlike other manufacturers who claim to have nonstick grilling surfaces that really aren't. Soap and water is all you need and charred food comes right off. Since I have a small countertop and I never have enough room in which to work, I like that I'm able to clamp the top and bottom of the grill together and have it stand up. Therefore, as it's leaning up against the wall, it frees up counter space.
Love Removable Grills!, June 3, 2009 By: Deb (Florida)
I had an older GF grill that was a pain to clean because the grill areas were not removable and I got tired of going through part of a roll of paper towels each time to get all the gunk off. This new one is a snap (literally)! There isn't a real need to put them in the dishwasher; just wash them down with some hot soapy water, rinse and dry, and they are good to go. It won't beat a grill outside but it does good on the kitchen counter!
Great aid in the kitchen, May 31, 2009 By: Esther E. Arosemena (Luperon DR)
I had the smaller GF Grill for years and loved it. This one, however, has several advantages over my old one. For one, since is bigger, you can prepare meals for four. The top lifts to accommodate "bulkier" food,(thick hamburgers, for example). Cleaning is a lot easier for this model since the plates are removable and practically wipe clean. And the time it takes to cook anything is surprising!! I've cooked 3/4 inch filet mignon wrapped in bacon in about seven minutes, (medium rare).
the best purchase I have made in 6 months and I like to shop, October 15, 2009 By: K. Steinmann (Missouri)
I just can't get over the speed that this grill will cook a frozen chicken breast, it is incredible and very easy to clean too!! I love it!!
New Foreman Grill, September 30, 2009
I bought this to replace an older model GF Grill, it did not have removable plates and the paint finish had started peeling off! So far I am very pleased with this purchase. I really like the size of the grill--not too small, not too large, just right for two or three burgers. The plates are great and easily removable for cleaning. It also stands up and locks in to place for easy storage. Now for the few cons: It does not have temperature control, just an on/off switch so you need to adapt and watch cooking times closely. It also does not seem to get as hot as my old Foreman. It's not really a problem though, since it does cook from both sides simultaneously, I just add a couple minutes to the cooking time. All in all I am pleased with the purchase and would recommend it to a friend.
Inside grill, January 31, 2010 BY JJ (CA)
Excellent Product. Cooked Hot dogs, hamburgers and Steaks. Steaks were great, but be sure to pre-heat to 425 before putting the streaks on. Grilled Cheese was not good, the cheese smooshed out because of the lid, but I'll make them on the flat grill I have. But great product except for grilled Cheese.
GF Grill, January 1, 2010 By:V. Weeks
I ordered this grill for my DH for Christmas this year. We have used it almost daily since it arrived. Every thing we have grilled comes out perfect. Love it!
One of my favorite xmas gifts, December 27, 2009 By: Aaron Bachler
I received this GF grill for xmas and I couldn't be happier. I've never had one before and I was worried about burgers tasting funny or not being cooked properly. Neither has been a problem. Burgers come out well done after about 6 minutes on the grill and taste great. Cleaning it up is a snap too. I only wish it could make 4 burgers at a time instead of 2 but at the speed it makes a meal, making more is not a problem.
Great Appliance, December 6, 2009 By: L. DriscollThis is great for quick meals. My family and I use it a couple times a week. Our food turns out delicious. I like the lifted top to melt cheese on our burgers. Heats fast and love that it stands on end. Best of all it is easy to clean.

15. George Foreman GRP72CTTS G-Broil Grill Supreme Electric Nonstick Countertop Grill with Digital Timer, Silver - Reviews
Disappointed with quality/service, September 16, 2009
We bought this appliance in July and used it 3-4 times. We were delighted with it, and took care with how we used, cleaned, and stored it. We took it out of the cupboard yesterday to fix dinner, lifted the ld, and the top broke off--the metal actually broke at the back hinge! On top of that, it wouldn't even turn on, so we had to haul out a frying pan to fix dinner. I can't seem to find any way to get this repaired/replaced, so we're out $80 for about use with about 4 dinners. I am very disappointed!
I love this grill, March 17, 2009 By: Carol Ann Snodgrass (Tacoma, WA)
I really love my new grill! It's so very easy to clean. Everything about it shouts "user friendly". From the removable plates to the tilted bottom so it will drain to the front, to the locking feature so you can stand it up for storage. I haven't found a single thing I dis-like about this product.Super Time Saver, April 4, 2009 By: Sally Santos (Richmond, TX)
grilled salmon fillets last night per instructions on my George Foreman Grill Supreme. They turned out just the way I wanted them. This is a great grill for a couple that would rather have a home cooked meal after work vs going out to eat. The clean up is a snap.
great item, April 23, 2009 By: Gene Dell grill guy (Seattle, WA)
I got this product to upgrade from my older, smaller, original George Foreman grill. I use it frequently, and it's wonderful, especially the fact that it's very easy to clean.
Perfect appliance, July 23, 2009 By: James Max Baer (Nashville, TN)
I gave this to my son-in-law for Christmas last year and he and my daughter absolutely loved it. So, I just bought one for myself. Ordered this past Sunday and received this Tuesday without paying for one day shipping! Cooked a ribeye last night and it turned out perfect. I followed the cooking instructions included for medium rare, 5 minutes, and it was superb. Clean up is a breeze. The digital timer is a great feature. I recommend this for one or two people.
Replacing my George, July 29, 2009 By: Robert E. Terry (Palos Verdes, CA)
Just replaced my old George with this new one. It is smaller than my old one, but a better size for two people. The removable heating plates are the best of the improvements. They snap off easily and can be soaked in the sink. This eliminates alot of wear and tear when cleaning the non-stick surfaces. The timer function is nice too, but the beeper pitch is so high only dogs can hear it. Maybe I need a hearing aid. The other handy feature is that it folds up and stores against the counter wall, leaving more available counter space. As for the cooking, It works just like the old one.
newer, better Floating hinge is best part, July 4, 2009 By: Pen (USA)
Had a previous foreman, (actually bigger, but with less "float" to hinge), but handle broke and replacement part too expensive, so replaced with this model. Best part is a newer higher, wider range floating hinge that allows top plate to sit flat on meat, instead of an angle just at the back portion. Smaller size has not been a problem.Use daily, great handy appliance.
Foreman grills, August 16, 2009 By: Steve Porretta (Burbank, CA)
nice grill. Works well. Cleans up easily. The timer is okay but doesn't turn anything off. Major drawback: size size size. This grill would be great if you could order it in a larger size, even at a higher price. This will accommodate two normal size, hamburgers. A larger size would accommodate three hamburgers or two good-sized stakes.
Bought it for $49 at Target, November 4, 2009 By: A. Tullos (Houston, TX)
I have used this 2-3 times since I bought it at Target on October 17, 2009 for $49. I really liked it the first two times, and yesterday I tried to broil some cheese onto tomatoes, and the upper coil did NOT heat properly. This is the "George Foreman GRP72CTTS G-Broil Grill Supreme" model.
IT'S OK, October 10, 2009 By: Bridget Fredrich (Texax)
It is really small, I wish I would have got the larger one for les money, not really impressed with the digital timer, the adjustable hinges are not really all that. It cooks good, just should have gotten the simpler one for less money.
Dont waste your money on this grill, August 25, 2009
I was so excited to get this grill, I was so wrong. It is a horrible grill. Burns every piece of meat I put on it. Smokes up the house to the fire alarm on my 12 ft ceilings coming on. No matter what, chicken, fish, pork chops. it burns the outside and inside is still under cooked. I am hope-ing the 360 with temp control will be better. This is my first George grill and I had high hopes. I have the Big George rotissery and it awesome, however this grill really is horrible, cant do anything with it. Dont waste your money.
The older grills where better, September 30, 2009 By: Captain Don (Florida)
wish I could return it for an older model. Hard to clean other than the plates. When heated it smells the like the fish I cooked on it from the last time I used it. I've cleaned it and cleaned it again. I will not purchase another Foreman Grill.
Great product, September 9, 2009 By: W. F. Hart WFH (Spain / Florida)We can't have a grill on our condo balcony, so we bought this. We bring it in each night after cooking. Food tastes great - almost grilled flavor. Easy cleanup. Only concern is that the teflon wears off the high points, but that's not a significant issue so far. For the money we are completely satisfied and can recommend this product.

16. George Foreman Next Grilleration 4-Burger Grills with Removable Plates - Reviews
Does not heat high enough to sear, July 14, 2007 By: Martin P.
I owned a first generation George Foreman grill and loved it. When it broke I purchased this one. Unlike my first, this one does not get very hot even after a long wait. The upper unit does not get past warm. The bottom unit will not sear or even cook at a reasonably high heat. The top unit is useless so you have to turn your food to have it cooked on both sides. A fry pan on a stove top does a better job.
Easy cleanup but should get hotter, January 22, 2006 By: Victor H. Agresti
We bought this model after dropping and breaking our ($[...]) George Foreman "Champ" grill.
FABULOUS!, May 11, 2005 By: Jessica %u201CKitchen Gadget - "Gourmand" (NY,NY)
When our small original George Forman gave out I bit the bullet, and decided to spend the money on one with more bells and whistles. GREAT DECISION! My husband uses this almost every day to make a burger, chicken breast, etc. I used it tonight, to make fabulous Tilapia filets which took no time and almost no effort (sprinkle w/ Emril's seasoning and grill for five minutes). THE BEST PART.... REMOVABLE GRILL PLATES! I've put these in the dishwasher and washed by hand. No problem and worlds better than the old model with the fixed plates. I'll use this appliance even more now that clean up is no longer a chore!
Works well for me!, October 28, 2005 By: lphan
I'm a college girl just getting into cooking, and I've made salmon, burgers, and even bacon on this grill. Having someone say "This salmon was seared perfectly!" the first time you've ever made it is a great feeling! You really can't mess up with this thing.
A significant improvement over the originals, October 21, 2005
We got one of the original George Foreman grills several years ago as a gift, and it took us a while to actually try it, but once we did, we ended up using it fairly often for hot dogs, hamburgers, and pork chops. It was convenient - though clean up was a bit of a hassle. These new ones solve that problem.
The Champion of Grills, May 4, 2005 By: James E. Carroll (Cape Cod, MA)
You will not find a better indoor grill anywhere at any price. This grill with its removable grilling plates that can be tossed in your dishwasher is the best of the rest. It has a sleek design, plenty of room for burgers; with its floating hinge you can cook steaks and chops too. The grilling plates come off and reinstall very easily. If you liked the earlier Foreman grills for the way they cooked, you have to buy this one for the ease of cleaning. You can enjoy your favorite foods grilled all year long!
The Knock Out Punch, March 19, 2005 By: M. Brewer (Memphis, TN)
This is the best grill out. It is so easy to clean which was my major complaint with the old Geroge Foreman grills. I had the old one but almost never used it because of the inconvenience with cleaning the cooking surface. Since purchasing the GRP4 I now eat at least one meal a day cooked on it. Now the only fast food I eat is cooked on this grill!
A KNOCKOUT!!, August 30, 2005 By: Reanas Mom (Raleigh, NC)
I love my new grill. This is the first George Foreman grill that I've even owned and I love it! I just love the removeable plates! I also love the large grilling surface. Although, I can' only put 3 1/4lb burgers on at a time, I still love it! It grills them up in no time and its always cooked thoroughly! I have not had my grill that long, so all I've made in it is burgers, but just for that, its great! After all is cooked, I just remove the plates and put them in the dishwasher along with the drip tray and its all cleaned! My mother has an older version and complains all the time about having to clean her grill. I'm glad I don't have that problem.
If You Marinate It Will Taste Good!!, July 29, 2005 By: A Kids Review
I don't do the cooking with this grill. My job is to clean it and before this we had the grill that did not have removable grills and it was hard to clean. It took me forever to scrub it that I was tempted on many occasions drop it on the floor in hopes it would break so I wouldn't have to scrub and clean it anymore! so when we got this new grill and I was able to remove the grills it was so much better and easy to clean and I love the new grill!
Convenient and easy to use., September 16, 2006 By: Bart Motes (Miami, Fl)
I was a skeptic about this grill. The whole concept seemed kind of goofy to me. Now, after eating a perfectly cooked salmon fillet this afternoon, I wonder why anyone who doesn't have the room for a traditional grill would go without one of these creatures. The cooking was simple and the cleanup was tremendously easy with the removable plates. Of course, you do not get some of the wonders of a real grill: that smokey flavor, the ability to cook large amounts of food all at once, and, of course, gathering around this grill with a few friends and talking and drinking while you cook is pretty awkward. But what a great product!
Much better than previous Foreman grills, June 7, 2006
I got this grill about a year ago and use it all the time. The removable plates make this an indispensable tool. When you are done cooking, just toss the plates into the dishwasher.
I also have some feedback after using it for a year. I actually wash mine in the sink more often than in the dishwasher because it is so easy to do. I do recommend stocking up on the George Forman sponges because they only last a month or two, and they work much better than anything else I have found.
I have had some Teflon come off the bottom plate, but not enough to make me upset. 2 or 3 small scratches, and 2 holes about half the diameter of a pencil. In fairness, the holes are on top of small bumps which are the contact point between the 2 plates.
Overall I am very happy with this, and would recommend it to anyone.

No words can describe how happy I am with this purchase! I was looking to replace my old Foreman grill that I had for many years. I chose this one because it offered convenience! It is a breeze to clean it with its dishwasher safe non-stick removable plates! The adjustable tilted leg lets me control how lean my food will get. It comes with an extra griddle plate which allows me to make food that you wouldn't normally be able to make on a grill (e.g. I make delicious omelets on my Foreman grill). Because that extra griddle is deeper it doesn't squash my leftover pizza! Its sleek design will fit in every kitchen. The grilling surface is larger therefore it takes a while to heat it up to the grilling temperature, but that gives you the time to prep your food/table. I love, love, love this product!
Best George Foreman On the Market, February 3, 2010
I had looked for quite some time to replace the George Foreman Grill that we were currently using. I wanted something that was easier to clean that could be put into the dishwasher or submerged into dish water. After researching other models, I decided to purchase another Foreman grill and this one came with a griddle plate too, so that was an added benefit. Thus far we have been very pleased with the purchase. The removable grill plates are fantastic for cleaning. I like the ease of using the tilting function of the grill to drain fats from the meat. The griddle is too small for making my large pancakes, but for a few slices of bacon & a couple of eggs, it is okay. This is an excellent purchase for two or three person family and I would definitely recommend it. There is no problem with storage and if you desire, it is attractive enough to sit on the counter. My only complaint would be the length of the electrical cord is too short. Another foot longer would have been nice.
this was a replacement..., October 19, 2009 By: Ty ms-t (Gardena, CA)
..and I'm glad I bought it. I love the removable, interchangeable plates. I noticed that it takes longer to heat up, when compared to my older, smaller George Foreman grill. Still, I'm pleased with it so far.
George Foreman Grill all that was expected, October 19, 2009
This grills meats in sufficient quantities for family dinners. Then you can use the griddle for breakfast the next morning. Works great
Just what I wanted!, June 27, 2009 By: JBlackwell reap100 (Texas)This product is exactly what I needed for grilling several pieces of meat simultaneously. The grill surfaces clean up easily, too.

Look for a Better Product, February 22, 2008 By: Rufus Quail
I have been using this product for a few years. I keep meaning to replace it with a better one.
Lean Mean Cheap Grilling Machine, March 14, 2008
Super Champ Limited Edition First impression: We've cooked fish and chops so far. The grill officially heats up in 5 minutes but actually seems to heat up in 3 to 4 minutes according to the orange light on the lid. The owner's manual says to open the lid after cooking with a pot holder. We didn't need a potholder. You MUST put a kitchen towel under the grill to catch cooking splatters. The grease catcher does catch all of the grease coming off the bottom grill. I think the bottom grill gets hotter than the top grill. You are warned to not unplug the grill with the orange heat light on to avoid sparks. I unplugged the grill with the orange light on and didn't see any sparks. The book doesn't say to use or not use a product like PAM. My dear wife's attitude is if it doesn't say use it then don't use it. The little spatula is very handy. The grill cooks very quickly. The grill uses 800 watts.
Tip for easier cleanup, April 4, 2009 By: D. Stinger (Southern USA)
Just after you unplug the grill after cooking, pour a small amount of water across the bottom grill. Be careful; it will turn to steam quickly while it's loosening any stuck-on drippings. Then, using a wadded WET paper towel, wipe the top and bottom grills clean. Again, be very careful not to burn your fingers--those grills are mighty hot. The manufacturer would rather you wait until the grills are cool, but my way works fast and cleans thoroughly. I do love this appliance for the way it cooks burgers (80 percent lean), boneless chops and boneless chicken breasts (the latter two marinated first). Good size for two people. Would buy it again.
Works Great - For a Short Time!, December 6, 2008 By: anoldman
We received this grill as a present and loved it at first. It was great for bacon, sausage and burgers. Trouble was, the non-stick coating soon started coming off. We took good care of it and only cleaned it with the plastic spatula and paper towels. Searching for a solution turned up lots of similar complaints too. Save your money and buy a different brand!
Love concept but want larger unit with removable plates, August 22, 2009
I had been skeptical about all of the George Foreman grills until I tried this one. It works great. I've had it and used it every day for 6 months and the coating is fine. Not sure why one reviewer had trouble with the coating. I use Pam for grilling fish and it's great. In fact, it cooks fish faster and better than anything I've used before. The first time, I overcooked the fish thinking it would take longer. I followed the enclosed recipe for marinated veggies and they were delicious. For the price and size, it's great. I think removable plates would make cleanup easier. And sometimes I want to cook more than one thing at a time. So, I'm looking at the larger models right now. I'll continue to use the Champ for smaller items or one-item meals.
A must-have for my kitchen, August 7, 2009 By: DMC (NY)
This is my third grill and when the last one wore out I was lost without it. I like the smallest size which is hard to find to I went up a notch and find this one is not overly large for my needs. So glad to have found it!!
My Super Grill :), February 3, 2009 By: K Branker Kendra (Tampa, FL)
I received the George Foreman Super Champ Grill for Christmas of'08. I wanted it because I knew that my diet for 2009 would require more cooking than I was equipped for. As a college student, this grill naturally stood out because I'm able to essentially make everything from hamburgers to chicken and shrimp to steak. But most importantly, I needed a quick cleanup! This grill provided all of these things.
Did the job and did it well, August 30, 2008 By: M. Garneau (Michigan)
I thought about getting a George Foreman Grill for ages and never got one until now. I grilled a chicken breast and it cooked just like it was supposed to. The grill is large enough to cook for a couple of people and the little dripping collector caught all the grease without any problems. Cleanup was simple with a wet rag. Well worth the price.
Awesome, January 18, 2010 By: Cristina Brady (Charleston, SC)
If you are looking for a way to cook a quick meal, this is the item you want. every house should own one. I even cook french fries on it, and they are done in about 5 minutes. Love it!
Good basic George Foreman Grill, November 16, 2009 By: Rick T.
I replaced my small George Foreman grill with this one. It is about 40% larger, but at under $20 it cost about the same as the small one. It works just as well, takes up little counter space, and is big enough to cook for two people.
Great purchase!, September 12, 2009 By: C. Weeks -TheLoneWolf (NY, USA)It's a nice grill, works as advertised. So far, I've done a few turkey burgers and a few pieces of chicken breast. Both were done within minutes. The scraping tool they give you is kind of useless. Also, I think it takes a little more work than they advertise, to clean it properly after use. Besides those trivial issues, it's a great grill to have, will do exactly what you need it to and in quick fashion.

It's okay, February 25, 2008 By: JP
I really wish this was easier to clean. I thought that all possible new Foreman grills would have the feature where you can remove the silver plating and just wash those versus washing the whole thing.
Smaller than the original GGR50B, April 28, 2008 By: DJ "hate2clean"
I bought this to replace my 5 year old George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill that just simply was used to death, and I loved it. This one is fine, but it is smaller than the original one (my first clue should have been the reduced price) and it is a bit harder to remove the grill plate to clean it. It has a clip underneath, for safety I suppose, but I find it awkward to remove. I really like the new one, too, but I am not happy it is so much smaller. It does fit into my sink for cleaning better than my old one since it is smaller. Just a warning if you are looking to replace the original model and want the same size, order GGR50B, not this one.
Great indoor/outdoor grill!!, December 11, 2007 By: Sisi (MO)
I have had this grill for years and I love it!!
versatile electric grill, February 22, 2008 By: N. J. Schreffler (Fenton, MI)
Sits on removable stand. Easily used indoor or outside/ with domed cover.
Great for apartments or condos, December 30, 2007
Most apartments and condos don't allow gas/charcoal bbq grills to be used. I bought this product and it is my new best friend. It is a breese to clean and it cooks fast. Though it will never replace the gas/charcoal grills, it is a heck of a backup.
Electric Grill is even better than I had hoped., July 12, 2009
I read a lot of reviews about the George Foreman Electric Grill. Many said they bought it because they live in apartment and can't have open fire. Some said they bought it to go outside, but it never left the kitchen and they use it all the time! I thought that was rather ridiculous and was sure that would not be me. Much to my surprise, the grill has not left our kitchen either!! It's great; fast to preheat and the food cooks very quickly and is extremely tasty. It's fun to cook table side! I did not think I would grill good quality steak on it, because I thought it would taste as good as a charcoal grill. Again, I was wrong. The steak was delicious. In fact, it took less time than the directions led me to believe. A thick steak, cooked to perfection in 12 minutes! We have made chicken, pork and fish and all were very tasty. There is no vent in the hood top, so food cooks quickly and evenly and there is not a lot of smoky smell lingering long into the night. It's "non-stick" surface takes awhile to clean thoroughly. That's the only Slight disadvantage. We are very pleased with the product; much more so than we ever expected to be! I never had an interest in the George Foreman table top grill, so this was a complete surprise that we like it so well.
Just what I needed!!!, May 29, 2008 By: Larry Ahlers (Eureka Springs, AR)
Received my George Foreman grill today and love it. I live in a townhouse with a 4x6 "balcony" and gas/charcoal grills are not permitted. This unit fits neatly in the corner and also sits nicely on my stovetop under the hood. I think it provides plenty of heat and my ribeyes were delicious!!!
Great grill!, March 31, 2008 By: Edwin Cisneros
Again, George Foreman products are a best buy! This is a great grill, extremely easy to ensemble and to use. I haven't missed any bar-b-q weekends since I bought it. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is that it was a little smaller than expected.
Not what I expected, February 25, 2009 By: Evie Dettling (Yuma, AZ)
The grill doesn't seem to get hot enough. Although the surface is no-stick coated, because it cannot be submersed, it's not that easy to clean. There is no vent in the hood so steam drips all around the unit on the floor/counter.
Greatest thing on Earth for apartments, August 3, 2009
My co-worker had bought this item and I couldn't resist to get one for my self. I went to many different stores and could not find it until I went onto Amazon.com. I love to grill, being a latina who loves certain foods that only taste good grilled I had to have this. Since I live in an apartment and no grills allowed on balconies, really made me depressed, until my grill came and I have been happy ever since.
disappointing , June 30, 2008 By: Jennifer mateo dealmaker (Marysville, WA)
I had purchased the original George Foreman Round Indoor/Outdoor Grill about 5 years ago. We were ready for our 2nd grill so I bought one. I was very disappointed. Our original grill was much better quality in the body. It allowed the user to take the grill out and actually wash it thoroughly if one was careful not to wash the plug unit. But the new one is just a cheap knock off of the original. The drip tray is in the new one is much better, but that is really the only positive comment I have on this grill.
Great For Indoor Grilling, February 6, 2010 By: Richard Glaze (Doniphan, MO)
Tried steaks the first time and came out dry and tough. I used an oven thermometer to read the temps for the number settings and next time the ribs were great. I agree with some of the other reviews, this can be a little difficult to clean.
Love this grill, November 1, 2009 By: Andrew J. Anderson (Washington, DC)I have had one of these for years and love it, my aunt wanted on and I could not get a better place and price to by one except on amazon.com and the best thing it was shipped right to her house at 500 miles away within a short quick time 3 days. Thank you.

21. George Foreman GR10ABW Champ Grill with Bun Warmer, White - Reviews
Useless Bunwarmer Feature, April 3, 2001 By: A Customer
The grill itself is as advertised BUT the bunwarmer feature on top is useless. It is literally too small to insert more than one bun at a time and is too shallow in that it actually "squashes" ONE bun that has been inserted in halves. This was a normal sized bun, not a large one. If I had it to buy over again, I would go with the cheaper model without the bunwarmer feature on top. It would be the same grill without the useless bunwarmer.
A great little grill for BBQ fun indoors, April 24, 2001
I've been watching George's informercials and regular commercials since they first appeared, and I've always been tempted to buy a grill. They were kinda pricey, so I never did. But then, I got one of the small grills with the bun warmer as a gift, and now... I AM HOOKED! I have every intention of buying the extra large grill as a result of the fun I've had with this one.
What you've heard about the grills is all true--they're really easy to clean, they cook food incredibly fast and evenly, and food really does come out as juicy and tender as the commercials show you. Tell you how good it works: I decided to grill skinless, boneless chicken tenders one night for dinner, but they were frozen solid, and I had a group of surly, hungry family members waiting. Just as a gamble, I put the tenders on the George grill to THAW them a little. Well, they thawed all right and were completely cooked in about 8 minutes. Color me surprised!
I've done steak, pork chops, chicken, and shrimp on this little grill, and with each use, I get better and better at gauging the cooking time. I do recommend that you use cooking spray to further the ease of cleanup because spices and marinades tend to blacken (or even burn) where the ridges press into the meat, and cooking spray will slow/stop that. As there's no temperature control on this model, everything cooks at max power, so time is of the essence in making sure what you're cooking doesn't blacken too much.
The bun warmer does just what it promises--warms. No worries about burning the bread because it doesn't toast; it just makes your breads nice and soft. I enjoy the color choices for the lid with this model--I think it's a fun little extra that gives some personality to a simple appliance (I recommend the purple). There's a spatula and drip tray included, and you'll find that the spatula is better used as a scraper than it is for anything else--it makes short work of removing stuck-on food, etc. You'll be stunned to see just how much fat drains away from your food.
If I had to come up with one negative point about the grill, I'd say this: it's not hard to burn yourself on it. The heated surface extends to the sides of the grill, so if you go to move the whole unit, it's really easy to char your fingers.
It's a great introduction to the George Foreman line of grills! The price is incredibly reasonable, and the machine works so well, you'll be glad you got one.
This baby makes quick & tasty food!, November 20, 2001 By: Yarden
I bought the George Foreman grill as a joke for my husband (it DOES say "Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine" on it), but we used it every day for three weeks solid after it arrived. The reason? It's EASY, and the food turns out really tasty!
This particular model is small, and will only cook one or two portions of meat at a time. However, the grill cooks from the top and bottom all at once to cut your cooking time down to mere minutes! The grill is tilted and comes with a trough so that all excess fat is drained away from your food. Pretty nifty! It's also fairly easy to clean up -- you just wipe down the grill and throw the trough in the dishwasher.
We've used the grill for chicken breasts, Boca Burgers, regular burgers, pork chops, steaks, and even bacon strips (it's GREAT for avoiding a bunch of messy bacon grease). It cooks even frozen meat in a relatively short period of time, and it cooks it thoroughly. It's easy to throw something on the grill, sprinkle some seasonings on it (BAM!), and let it cook for a few minutes while you fix the rest of the meal. It is hard to overcook things, and it's fun to have grill-lines on your food.
It took me awhile to believe the hype about the George Foreman Grills, but they are easy to use and deliver good results. In fact, this might be a good way to introduce your older children (12 and up) to rudimentary cooking. The George Foreman grill is a great choice for people who don't have a lot of time to cook & clean, who aren't yet confident cooks or don't have a lot of cooking experience, or for anyone who wants an easy way to make a tasty meal!
George Foreman GR10ABW Champ Grill with Bun Warmer Review, January 30, 2001 By: john doe (San Jose, CA)
After seeing this thing on the Superbowl commercials, I just had to have one. So I went out and purchased one of these things. I LOVE it! It works the same way that the original did, but this time there is a bun warmer included on the top of it. The only negative that I could find with the product was that the bun warmer tends to dry out the buns a bit, but if you add a little bit of water, it tends to steam the buns - if you would like your buns steamed. Other than that, this is a great product and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
do not buy this grill, buy the new version!, February 7, 2005
like this grill a lot but cleaning is awful. There is a new George Forman Grill out called "George Foreman GRP99 Next Generation Grill with Removable Plates" that will be similar this grill but with removable grill plate for easy cleaning.
Too small for more than one person but it works well, February 9, 2002
I was unsure about the George Foreman School of Cuisine but my sister (who has a big one) raved about how fast and easy it is. She's right. It IS fast. It IS easy. But the Champ is just a wee bit too small to get down to business with if you are cooking for more than one person. I wish Salton would add a variable temperature control to its design, which is a good one. My main tip for cooking on it is to turn the food once as the top plate does get hotter than the bottom one. The bun warmer is a joke.
Useful, compact means of preparing veggies., March 31, 2005
From the outset, I bought this machine to make healthier foods i.e. veggies for the family and it does not disappoint. So far I've grilled onions and I've done asparagus and sliced yams in a teriyaki-style marinade. Everything cooks up quickly and evenly. Keeping the grill veggies-only means I'm less concerned about whether food residue is left behind. (This grill IS a bit hard)
One of those products you have to try to believe it!, January 17, 2005
This is my review of the George Foreman GR10AWHT champ grill. Not a real fan of the bun warmer version. The lid kind of flaps around and seems flimsy to me. But the grill is amazing love it. Excavation .
Not as advertized, August 30, 2004 By: Stephen Hayden (Landover, MD)
The grill marks on the top are very shallow, making this device better for panini than for grilling meat. If that was what it was advertized for I'd give it 3 or 4 stars. The plastic cleaning fork is worthless, and the non-stick coating begins to flake after 6 months. The barely raised ridges on the top makes the top of your meat evenly brown & dry without the grill marks. The bottom is not nearly as cooked as the top, and has the best marks near the opening where the grill lines are raised to form "teeth" to hold the meat in. When the grill started flaking, I went back to the Cast Iron grill I can put over 2 burners & control the temperature. I still use this grill for grilling panini sandwiches, as it makes the bread nice & toasty. Not reccomended for meat unless you make sure they are even & level. Not very fun to clean.
bad nonstick coating, December 13, 2006 By: Steven (NYC)
i used to use this whenever i was grilling a type of meat or vegetable, but it always burns them and leaves other parts uncooked if other pieces arent uniform in thickness. this is not grilling because the heat is only transfered from those protruding grill lines which burn anything your cooking to simulate grill marks. all my marinades burn and get stuck to the grill. you definatly need to get a cooking spray because if you brush it on it will come right off. this is bad because i like to use olive oil, but even if you put it into a spray bottle it still likes to drip off. cleaning this unit is a chore because you cannot soak it, and it takes a bit of time to cool down before you can pick it up and go wash it in the sink. you also have to hold it at weird angles(upside down even) to avoid water getting into the unit especially the top half. the surface isnt really non stick and requires some scrubbing with a soft sponge. the bun warmer is useless, your better off having the grill open and placing you buns on that. the only thing that this thing does well in is make grilled sandwiches, the bread doesnt burn really but does get good marks if you butter it lightly.
Just Buy It. This thing works great!!!, August 14, 2002 By: J. Burns (El Toro, CA)Just Buy It. This thing works great. I got one 9 months ago and I quit using anything else to cook meat since first use. It makes cooking meat easy, fast and easy to cleanup after. It drains off lots of fat. As a bonus the meat tastes better, far better than oven, frying, microwave or convection oven. I use a lot less steak sauce and katsup because the meat tastes good. I've just bought two more from Amazon since the price went down from the first one I bought. This thing actually lived up to and far exceeded all the ads and hype.

22. George Foreman Removable-Plate Grill - 72 sq. in. (GRP4B) - Reviews
Cooks great but leaves a terrible mess!, June 26, 2009 By: Midwest Daisy
I got this grill a few weeks ago and love the way it cooks food. Boneless chicken breasts are fully cooked, tender and juicy, in about 5 minutes. The removable, dishwasher-safe plates are something that the GF grills should all have... nothing could be handier than that. There is no timer, though, so you'll have to use the manual as a guide, then make notes as you go of how long it takes each particular food to cook. For example, the chicken is done in 5 minutes, while it took about 7 for a 1/2 pound hamburger patty, and close to 10 for a slab of boneless pork shoulder ("country style"). I actually gave up on bacon after a while because it's too thin and the top plate won't help with the cooking. It's nowhere near as effective if both plates aren't cooking at once. So I finished off the bacon in the microwave and put sausage patties on instead. Those work great.
Kitchen Staple - easy clean up, October 6, 2008 By: DW movie fan
We love this George Forman grill with the removable plates! Not only does it cook up burgers, chicken, veggies, fish, steaks in no time - but it is a snap to clean up. The removable grill plates allow you to put this in the dishwasher. We liked our old grill - but it was a pain to clean. This is so much easier and it cooks up dinner/lunch very quickly. We bought some as gifts too. If you do not have an outside grill - this will do very nicely. We really like cooking with it.
grill everything, December 22, 2007 By: Joseph M. Vles (San Francisco, CA)
We do bacon, hamburgers, sometimes fish on it. Can't beat it for efficiency and speed. We're on our fourth one (not that they wear out fast; none of them have ever stopped working).
grill or steam?, February 16, 2009 By: Silverstar (Pensacola, FL)
Several of my friends have George Foreman grills and love them. I returned my grill for a refund. I tried to grill a steak and it ended up steaming instead of grilling. Not very appetizing. I thought perhaps I had not let it warm up long enough so I tried it two more times with the same result. I'm not sure if the removable plates design is a factor or not as my friends model did not have removable plates. I wouldn't recommend this model to anyone.
Good alternative to a grill..., July 19, 2008 By: T. Ellis (Federick, MD)
We bought this when we lived in an apartment. We weren't allowed to have any type of grill. This worked well for what we needed. I grilled chicken, burgers, hotdogs, and pineapple on it. It wasn't as good as on an actual grill, but it was a good alternative for our situation. Now we live in a house, but I still use it for hot dogs and I think that I will try bacon.
Great Grill, December 25, 2008 By: R. Friedel RichF (Atlanta, GA)
I had an older model that did not have the removable plates. It was a real "pain" to clean. This model with the removable plates is so easy, just remove them and dump them in the dishwasher.
Way too hot, no temp adjustment, overcooks and burns, September 24, 2009 By: D. Cushman
I have always wanted a George Foreman grill and recently went through two of them, with this one being the second (and last). The first one I quickly returned because the plates could not be removed, making cleanup very cumbersome and awkward in the sink. This unit does a good job of resolving that problem. Removable plates are easy to clean.
Doesn't brown your food, August 1, 2009 By: Jerry Bologna (San Pedro,CA)
I am referring to this specific model with removable grill plates. The plates just don't get hot enough to brown anything. I use a thermometer probe to check when my food is cooked. I can't believe that my chicken, turkey, and beef reaches 170 degrees and STILL no nice color on the outside. Turkey and beef turns gray when it's done, and chicken turns white. And since you continue to let it cook because it actually looks undercooked, the meat becomes overcooked and dry.
Not meeting expectations or hoopla, March 2, 2009 BY: Laurie Ellington APO, AE)
We just bought this grill and have cooked pork tenderloins, bacon, burgers and sandwiches on it. So far, I'd give it about a C .
so much better!, February 3, 2009 By: F. Cortez
Cleaning the old George Foreman grill was such a pain that I never even wanted to use it. Now with the removable plates I can throw them in the dishwasher and its no longer a hassle!
Nice Unit, March 29, 2009 By: ppberns (New York, USA)
I would have given this a rating of 5 stars but it lacked a timer for cooking. I didn't realize this when I purchased it and didn't notice if it specified that in the description.
George Foreman Grill, The Next Grilleration, GRP4B - Excellent, November 22, 2009 By: Bachelor (Nevada, USA)
I love my George Foreman Grill. Removable grill plates are the most important feature. Mine did not come with the flat bottom plate. If you buy one, make sure you get the most recent version with the flat bottom plate.
Great Product, April 13, 2009 By: Howard J. Kramer %u201CHoward%u201D Forest Hills, NY)
Yes, I love this George Foreman grill. I used to eat out almost everyday after work but due to the economy, I wanted to cut back on expenses. I use the grill for steaks, fish, chicken breasts and hamburgers and love it. Cooking time is exceptionally fast and clean up is pretty easy. I do not have a dishwasher so I soak the removable grills in soapy water in the sink for about an hour before cleaning. Now I'm in love with cooking.
I love this grill , March 4, 2009 By: A. Corter (Saranac Lake, NY, USA)I love this grill! I had an old George that the grill plates could not be removed for cleaning - What a pain! I bought this one specifically because of the removable plates and it has not let me down! It is just a snap to clean .. no more soggy towels and dried on mess. These go right in the dishpan! If you have the old style ... invest in this one. You won't be sorry!

23. George Foreman G5 Grill with Interchangeable Plates - GRP90WGR - Reviews
Nonstick coating comes of after several months , March 24, 2008
By: Petrucci "Book lover"
After several months of light use, nonstick coating came off the removable plates. We took great care cleaning the plates, strictly adhering to the guides described in the product manual, but this happened anyway. Here is the worst part: even though our purchase was still under warranty, Salton was not willing to send us any replacement plates. They said they are out of stock two months ago, and are still "out of stock" as of last week, God knows if they will ever have these plates again. A terrible experience, will never buy from them again.
I love this grill!, September 3, 2006 By: Kathy Kam
This grill is easy to clean, and the food turns out great. It comes with a little recipe book to show you exactly how to make the stuff. I tried grilling chicken, vegetables, making waffles, and they all turned out great!
Great Countertop Grill, January 13, 2008 By: S. P. O%u2019Donnell (San Jose, CA)
This is a great grill...
Excellent, June 17, 2006 By: L. Panesi (Pineville, NC)
Great machine. Easy to clean. Bacon comes out crispy without having to watch over it. Pancakes turned out great, eggs too. Haven't made waffles yet. You must use a little "pam" or things will stick. Once you use it you'll wonder how you lived without it.
LOVE this!, October 30, 2006 By: Patrizia (Charlotte, NC)
have the Hot Pink version that they released for breast cancer awareness month.. I have had grills before but this one is a breeze to clean.. looks great on my counter.. and you can even make cookies in it.. I love it and would recommend this to anyone!!! The hot pink is gorgeous!!!!
Outstanding concept, the best George yet., June 25, 2006
I have 5 George's including the G5. They are all excellent. When the removable plates came out, I bought one immediately, with terric results. These different plates are great. The leveler knob is a great idea, especially for runny things like eggs or batters. Only thing I wish it had was a digital temp control instead of a know, which takes some getting used to your cooking style. I've bought 3 more for gifts. Perfect for new cooks or newlyweds.
Over-priced, doesn't last, February 8, 2009 By: G Petty (Virginia)
Had an original unit from a yard sale and loved it, but I wanted a larger, more versatile grill. Bought the G5 unit when it first hit the market in 2006.. Paid 103.99, plus $30 for the omelet plates.
Great as a waffle maker and electric fryer pan!, December 24, 2007
The George Foreman GRP90WGR Next Grilleration Removable-Plate Grill with 5 Plates, Red --works great; however for grilling meats- such a pork chops I would not recommend it. It steams them more so-- than grills them. Not the same as an outdoor grill at all. I have to say, used as a waffle iron it works fantastically. Make sure to use cooking spray however--or they will stick to the trays big time! No timer on the grill so you have to watch the waffles to make sure they don't over cook. Works great for as an electric fry top for things such as eggs too. Easy to store away. Easy to clean. I place the trays right in the dishwasher- and easy as eureka!

This George Foreman Grill is perfect!, August 17, 2009 By: Phyllis K. Bounopane -kenpo Kapo (Coconut Creek, Fl)
I had a George Foreman Grill and I hated it because I couldn't get it really clean. This Grill is great. The removable plates are the best thing to be added. Now, the Grill is so easy to clean. I've only used the grilling plates. I haven't tried the waffle or the baking/griddle plates yet. The square shape and the raised platform like bottom are another plus. It doesn't seem to take as much room on the counter top. It is worth every penny of the price.
Good, but has shortcomings, December 25, 2008 By: David Cornwell
This seems in general to be a good product, but with two exceptions that I've found so far. The power chord is very short which makes it difficult to find a good close outlet in the kitchen. Also the instruction booklet is not the best I've seen leaving some things to guessing.
LOVE this grill!, December 16, 2009 By: L. VanHouten (North Carolina)I love this grill! It is easy to use, easy to clean, what more can you ask for? I use this grill several times a week for grilled chicken, salmon, burgers, turkey burgers, pork chops. Everything turns out great. I have had no problems with the nonstick coating coming off and I've had this grill for a year now. I tend to wash the plates by hand just because my dishwasher is small and usually full of other things, but they have had their share of runs thru the dishwasher and are fine. The waffle plate work great as well and have made waffles a favorite around here on weekends or special occasions. I can't say enough about it. I owned the regular old george foreman before and was not really a fan but this one is GREAT. Even my brother who is picky about his food said he was amazed that burgers still tasted great cooked on the george foreman. Buy it, you'll love it!
