George Foreman Grill

Updated on August 1, 2017

Have you ever been hungry for some delicious looking food but didn’t want to take a lot of time making it or going out to get it? Was fat content or calories always a factor in your choice? If you like bland, dry, poor food then go on and do what you're doing now, but if you want juicy great tasting food then this is for you! If you own an apartment, house, condo, or trailer this option has no limits, from personal experience I know this will revolutionize your kitchen! The mouth-watering solution is easy and simple, it can also save you money on food!

Yummy Mouth-Watering Burger!!

Ok already! Tell me more!!!

The George Foreman series grills are one of the best investments your kitchen could ever have! Grilled food anytime of day you want without fire and hesitation? These grills are fast working, long lasting, and help create healthy dishes. I personally made some of the best hamburgers and chicken on this system. Even if you don’t know how to cook, the grill does it all for you! The grill comes with a small recipe guide of I believe over 100 recipes to make with it, all you need to do is follow the instructions. With this in your kitchen, it’s like having a chef with you all the time, guiding you the whole way.

Time-Saving Features

The George Foreman grill is a plug in and go device. Most don’t even have an on or off switch, just plug it in and it will start to heat up. A light will come on (or turn off depending on model) when the grill is fired up and ready to cook. The design of the grill has a top and bottom heat surfaces. This allows the grill to cook both sides evenly at the same time! The top of the grill is just as hot as the bottom.

Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine!

Grill Like a Champion! No need to eat extra fat, cut it out and savor all the flavor!

Eat Healthier, It Eliminates Fatty Grease.

The George Foreman grill is exactly what it says on the top, it’s a Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine! The grill itself is slanted at an angle dipping down to the front. In the front a grease drip tray is set. These trays are fully dishwasher safe and easy to clean by hand too! What makes it less fat then a frying pan though? The answer is in its weighted upper lid. The technology has stretching room in the back so the lid fits nicely on anything, also applying weight that squeezes grease out of the meat into the drip tray!

Cleaning is no problem!

The grill come with two plastic spatulas that are meant to clean in-between the lines on the cooking surfaces. What I personally find best is a slightly damp 3-4 sheets of paper towel folded over each other quickly wiping the elements before it cools. It can also be cleaned when cool-but do not submerge in water! Clean up normally only takes about 5 minutes or less, depending on what was cooked and how much was cooked.

Some Things I have Personally Made:

-Hamburgers
-Cheeseburgers
-Chicken Breast
-Chicken Wings
-Thin Steaks
-Pork Chops
-Grilled Cheese
-Ham+Cheese Melt
-Salmon
-Haddock
-Scrod
-Grilled Vegetables (whole)
There is so much more you can make with this grill!

George Foreman Large Value Grill

This grill has to be the best value and best investment to my kitchen out of all the appliances in it!

What model do you personally have?

I have the George Foreman Family Grill. This model isn’t made anymore but there is one with about the same size which is the George Foreman Super Large Value Grill. Even if you are alone I suggest you get the large one. It has the best variety on what can be made and compared to friends, they wish they had the one I had. Here are the specifications on it:

  • 144 square inch grilling surface for family cooking
  • Temperature indicator light indicates plates are at grilling temperature
  • Integrated handle is ergonomic & compact
  • Double non-stick coating is durable & eliminates need for oil
  • Patented sloped grill design knocks out the fat
  • 1 ½" floating hinge works to accommodate thick cuts of meat
  • Embedded heat elements provide consistent heat & rapid recovery time
  • Fixed grill plates can be wiped down for easy clean up
  • 2 drip trays catch run off liquids for no-mess clean up
  • 2 spatulas are customized for grill

This grill would normally run you about $60 USD, but now there on sale for $40 or less!!! That’s right, here it is:

George Foreman Large Value Grill

George Foreman GR1212 Jumbo-Size Electric Nonstick Contact Grill
George Foreman GR1212 Jumbo-Size Electric Nonstick Contact Grill

This is the best value George Foreman Grill! If you were smart you wouldn't even think twice, it stands for quality, fat reducing, and overall great food with great nutritional value!

 

Well, what are you waiting for? I didn’t wait for mine, it was the best purchase I ever made, and to this day I enjoy wholesome delicious food made by my George Foreman Grill.

      @Barbara Kay - Yea, a removable surface grill is nice so you don't need to stand over it and scrap it with the little plastic utensil provided. Although, if you don't have a lot of sink room it is nice the grill holds it in place to scrap it in the first place.

      We use a grill frequently. It works great when you are in a hurry and want to cook a good meal.

      I have one where the grill surfaces can be removed for cleaning.

      @Dr Ken Romeo

      The large grill at least came with two plastic cleaners that clean 3 rows at a time. It you misplace or lose them, Popsicle sticks will take off grease but it is tedious and time consuming.

      It grilled great, but I had a problem cleaning the grill itself. I am sure the newer models have solved this problem.

      My sister-in-law bought us an indoor grill a few years back that the fat and grease drips through holes in the rack into the reservoir underneath. I used that until it wore out. Now I can't find another one. I've looked at the GF grills, but they aren't as big as the one I had, and I got used to grilling everything at once. If I can't locate another one soon, though, GF is the way I'll go. You gave me lots of information that will be useful if I end up choosing one.
