We love our new George Foreman Grill

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I finally broke down and bought one. I have tried a few different meats on the grill, and its very easy to use, and produces great results.

Last night I grilled burgers, which, even though I used lean ground, produced more fat than the steaks and chops I had done. The grill unit has a dripping tray, where the fat runs off and collects in this trough which you just set below the bottom lip.

I left it on the counter, as the fat was still hot, and then forgot about it. This morning, the tray was kind of pushed aside; odd, I thought. Then noticed that the fat in the tray was half gone, with apparent kitty lick marks in it.

So apparently the cats like the grill as much as I do. I wonder which one was the culprit? I wonder if I will be able to tell?

I love my Foreman too. The only thing I don't like is the cleanup. I find that if you spray it with non stick spray before it gets hot, it helps with the clean up. Also, if you clean it when it is still a bit warm, that helps too.

Or, apparently, just leave it out where the cats can get it. It looked pretty clean this morning.

i love my foreman i just wish the plates could be removed and washed, they are so hard to clean the way they are and you can't submerge the unit.. Otherwise, it's great

Windmere makes an indoor grill, the HealthZone grill, similar to Foreman, but with removable dishwasher-safe grill plates. I got mine at Zellers, but I've also seen them at Costco. The only thing is that it is not tilted (I guess Foreman got a patent or something), but I just put a little stick under the back legs and it works just the same way.

If I cook something really fatty (like bacon) sometimes there will be some grease left on after dishwashering, but on the whole, they come very clean. And even if I do have to hand-wash, at least the plates come off and you can wash them in the sink easily.

i kno it gets really hot and kills germs and all, but I just can't get past the fact you only wipe off the foreman plates.. maybe I'll have to purchase a windmere one next..

To get mine clean, I get at it when it is still a little warm. I put it in the dish drain which is in my second sink, and I run the water over it while scrubbing at it with a nylon scrubby thingy (yes, that is the technical name :P). Once all the food particles are gone, I go back over it with a very soapy wet rag. So, I don't dip the whole thing in water, but I think it is very clean when I am done with it.

I love my grill too and Toes drank the fat from some meat I had and had diarrhea for a week. The vet said he was fine, but to pay attention to his hydration.
