Rated 5 out of 5 by papperclippy Finally an indoor grill that cooks for more than 1
I had a smaller foreman grill before I purchased this product. I liked the small one, but it was too small to cook dinner even for two. I don't like to have half the meal done while I am waiting for the rest, also, the food was a little dry which I thought might have been from the two sides pressing down on the meat.
So I went looking around. I checked out the red foreman that is around 100 dollars, but it felt cheap to me, not to mention I thought it was still a little too small. My expectations were that I wanted to be able to grill four burgers and chicken at the same time. The other two sided grill that I considered was the cuisanart one. It felt extremely durable and very versatile, but then I didn't want to spend that kind of money, around 100-150 dollars.
Thanksgiving came around and walmart had this product on sale for dirt cheap, 42 bucks. I did the free ship to store. It received excellent reviews, but I couldn't find it in the stores where I live to see it before I bought it, so I purchased it blindly and waited anxiously to receive it.
I had the opportunity to test this baby out a couple of times and I love it. I really had no clue what the size was when I order it. Picture a your normal household outdoor round charcoal grill, that is basically the size of this foreman. Lots of people complained about the stand saying it wasn't stable, I think the company who makes this grill listened and changed the way the poles fit together to make the stand. The directions still mimic the old poles, but I have no problem with how sturdy it is. The nonstick feature is excellent as always. The meat stays extremely juicy with the lid on.
Also, it is an indoor outdoor grill. I live in an apartment and don't have a patio or balcony, so I use this inside. There is little or no smoke, but some steam will rise out when you take the lid off. As far as cleanup goes, you could just take a paper towel and wipe it off, but I take the grill off and clean it in the bathtub.
You could actually cook for a real family of four with this grill with no problem. You could easily cook for 6-8 people with no problem. I think the meat is alot juicier than the two sided grill. This grill will get hot leaving those grill marks in the food, I thought it would't do that. I have cooked chicken on it and burgers so far, I still have to try steaks on it.
I highly recommend this. Do the site-to-store shipping since it is free. It says it will take a while to arrive, but mine came in about five days before the initial arrival time. The cord is about 6.5 feet long, so you might need a heavy duty extension cord if you plan on using this on your patio outside.
One last comparison for those of you looking at other models. Foreman has the GGR200RDDSS out as well, which I finally saw in the store. It doesn't feel as durable as the 50 model. Also, it looked like the grill was screwed on, which could be a pain to wash in the sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasKitti So happy to be grilling once again!!!
I am one that loves to grill (almost daily)- owner of a really nice 5 burner gas grill - however, I can't have a gas grill at my townhouse - and I truly miss grilling - after a long research of outdoor "electric" grills I decided on the George Forman indoor/outdoor electric grill. Let me tell you - this was a great decision. I cooked my first meal on it last night - rib eye steak...it was quick...the steak had the beautiful cross marks as you would get on a gas grill and Juicy...omg...it was so juicy...absolutely to die for....I cannot wait to get home this evening and grill something else. This girl is truly happy to be grilling once again!!! Thank you George for a fantastic product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fatfreecookin great for condo life
This grill is great, heats up in no time, cooks evenly and cleans up like a dream thanks to the non-stick coating.
I've cooked corn, steaks, chicken, veggies. This is truly a wonderful product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by luv2bmom Very practical gift
The grill have met my kids expectations of the perfect Father's Day gift for their Dad at his new apartment. He was not allowed to have a gas grill and this electric grill cooks like a gas grill with easy clean up and it still feels like they are grilling.
Rated 5 out of 5 by neworleansjim Great Value
Excellent and versatile product that's easy to use and clean. Use it indoors and outdoors. Remember to initially slow cook then increase the temperature at the end of cooking to grill score the food and crsip food surfaces. The grill's temperatures can really get hot.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LilytheGriller Best product for the money...
This grill is the GREATEST!!!! After researching all kinds of grills in my modest price range, I finally decided to TRY the George Fireman Electric indoor-outdoor 240" grill with dome lid. I fell in love the first time I used it. Before even cooking, I wanted to see how hot it would get and how long it would take to get there. I used an Eastman 14" grill thermometer that went from 50* to 550*, turned the grill dial to it's highest mark and placed the thermometer put the lid on. I left it for 5 minutes and came back to see that it had reached 500*!!! and was still climbing!! I knew it would serve every purpose I had in mind for it. I have satisfactorily grilled hamburgers, steaks, chicken, brats, hot dogs, veggies and a small personal size pizza!! No, there is no smoky flavor imparted but that can be handled easily by marinading your meats in a potion of your favorite sauces and adding Figaro's Hickory Liquid Smoke marinade or any of your choice (there are hundreds), also what I have done is by using smoking chips (either hickory or mesquite) found in the charcoal aisle. Soak the chips in water for half an hour or so wrap them up in tin foil loosely and pierce with a fork a few holes in top, toss onto HOT grill until you begin seeing and smelling smoke, grill your foods as usual. YUM! Clean up is a breeze, when I grilled BBQ chicken, it left a lot of residue and grease so I left it until morning to clean! I disengaged the electric plug and brought the grillplate to my kitchen sink, turned my faucet on HOT and used the sprayer to rinse off 95% of the mess, when dried with a couple of paper towels it was clean and ready to use again in about 3 minutes! (I did use some spray cooking oil) I will never go back to the drudgery and dangers of charcoal, waiting for them to ignite and get to the cooking stage, cooking and leaving a big hot coal mess and grate to clean and propane! Going to the store lugging your old for a new one (not cheap!) hooking it up, waiting for 20-30 minutes for it to acheive correct temp for what ever foods you want and another beastly clean up affair. I plug my unit in, leaving dome on and in 5 minutes ready to cook and the control you have over the temp is FANTASTIC, you can back it down or even turn it off and let the heat inside the dome do a lot of the cooking (chicken and pork require longer, lower heats) and when you turn it off it does not carry a ton of residual heat so it is much safer around children and even your beloved pets. It does not take up a lot of room on my very small patio yet I can cook enough food to feed the guests that will fit comfortably in my tiny space. I ordered online at the Walmart rollback price of $69.00 and got free shipping to my home, I ordered it the Friday before 4th of July and received it July 3rd!! I have used it everyday since. The unit also comes apart from the stand and can be brought inside for indoor cooking during rain or the winter months. It is convenient and portable enough to be used on an RV or houseboat or the cabin at the lake. It is moderately priced and would make a wonderful gift to newlyweds or even oldyweds anniversary! I am so proud and happy with my grill I think it is the best thing I have bought in several years for myself! I am having a patio party in about 2 weeks and everything will be cooked on my Foreman Grill. Happy Grilling!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rob1017 Exceeded Expectations
Having always been a gas grill lover, I resisted purchasing a electric grill when I moved in to a second floor flat with patios which city law prohibits the use open flame grills. After 15 months I read reviews on the outdoor George Forman grill (I have been using the indoor grill for many years), based on the number of positive reviews I took a leap faith and spent the $88. This grill stands along side gas and charcoal with no caveats, period. I set the grill on the highest setting, using a timer and after a couple test runs, every item I grill comes off the George Forman just as if I used a flame grill. Other added benefits are the clean up is much easer and no running to store for propane.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetPersian Met Our Purpose and Needs
This product works very well, and we are pleased with the performance. The size is great for our small outdoor patio. We do not use it indoors. Assembly one minute, bargeque the next.
The only disappointing element is the cover. It is expected to hang over the side of the grill. Once it fell off and left a visible dent in the top.
Price was fantastic. Cord is strong. I clean the grill outside--it wipes beautifully, and the grease runs into a removable pan underneath the grill. If the grill gets encrusted from sauce, I just spray it with a little water after it cools down, and it wipes right off.
I think George Foreman should review the quality of the cover; otherwise, it is a fine speciman to barbeque on. There is no horrid smell from fluid, nor ash from the coals. You can smell what you are grilling. Cleaning is a breeze.
It's perfect for a single person or a small family. I love using it here in Arizona because our weather is perfect for grilling year round.
Good investment. Don't hesitate.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JOY05 Fabulous easy to use Grill
Ilove this grill so much we use it everyday for everything. It's fast easy to clean light to move around. It's indoor / outdoor, but it just stays in my kitchen all the time. We are taking it on vacation trout fishing on Spring Break, can't wait to grill those trout on it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elmo2269 Love it!
Love it!!! I bought this because I have a 2 tier enclosed deck and it makes it so convienent to just come out to my upper deck (right off the kitchen) to grill. I no longer have to go up and down to BBQ on a bigger gas grill for just my husband and I. It's very easy to clean as long as you spray it with a cooking spray. It grills evenly and big enough to grill a lot at once.
Rated 5 out of 5 by leeleecutie nice indoor grill
this is exactly what I expected. I have been thinking about this item, doing research for about a year now. I've read reviews over and over again. the set up was extremely easy and I put this baby up in less than 5 minutes by myself. This fits a bunch of burgers and also does a lot of chicken breast. that's all I've cooked so far. the meat is very tender and moist and it also makes pretty grill marks so I have the look of outdoor grilling. the only problem I can think of is the grease trap. it should be larger. I was a bit over zealous making burgers and it made a drippy mess. I just put down a lot of paper towels and let the grill cool off. then I got to work cleaning it all up. I am happy that the grill comes off the stand and everything came apart effortlessly for cleaning. i would recommend this to a friend but would caution on cooking too much greasy stuff because the trap isn't big enough. the next time around, i made about 6 nice sized burger patties and it was just fine.
Rated 4 out of 5 by R1150GSRider Just what you would like for a small condo/appt.
Went together easy. Good enough for cooking hamburgers or steads for 4-6 people. Cleanup is easy. It's nice being able to take the grill part off the pedestal and use it on a table or kitchen bar. For what I paid, defiantly a nice little unit.
Rated 5 out of 5 by couguar Great value for the money.
Very easy to put together. I cooked pre-seasoned chicken thighs and they came out very moist and flavorful, no fuss or bother, only had to turn them once. Grill top easy to remove and clean, grease trap plenty large for the job. I use it on a small covered resin-floor porch and it is perfect for the space. I have ordered a cover from Amazon to protect it from the elements as it is too large to be comfortable in my small manufactured home, and my smoke alarms are too sensitive to permit indoor grilling. I was able to get this during the Walmart Black Friday sale and feel it was an excellent value. For anyone who has problems with using gas or charcoal grills, this is an excellent substitute, and provides the added health benefits of George Foreman grilling. It appears to me to be large enough to handle a whole chicken or a small turkey, and I am looking forward to trying grilled pizza on it...Yummm!

This grill cooks beautifully and I wish I would have purchased it earlier in the summer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lada56 Very good for electric gril
As close as it can get to gas outdoor grill.And easy to clean too.Would recommend it for a balcony or small terrace.
Rated 5 out of 5 by floridagal777 cute and very efficient grill
we live in a condo, not able to use charcoal or gas grills on our little porch...this grill allows us to enjoy grilling again. Just what we were looking for....does a great job, heats up quickly, easy to clean up, has a drip tray to catch juices that run off, can't believe the price...what a bargain....thanks, george!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by InfinitySpiral Bad Drip Tray Design
I was hopeful for this product. The other grills that didn't have a removable trays were a pain to clean, but I figured at least this would have a large surface so I could cook up more than one meal at a time if I had to go through the hassle of cleaning it.
It seems to heat up and cook consistently but the drip tray is impossible to access during cooking because you would actually have to remove the large cooking surface to empty it which means that you will need to wait until it cools. This would be great if the drip tray was huge, but it's not and I found myself with a grill that leaked grease all over the floor halfway through heating with no real way to stop it. Even if you have oven mitts the surface gets so hot you can't remove part way through.
If the drip tray was accessible during cooking this product would be perfectly fine. As it is, I took it back after 1 use.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Special1Granny George Foreman Electric Grill
I bought this for my son-in-law because I have one and my husband raves about it every time he uses it. It is so much better than using dirty charcoals or gas and running out. Its an easy cleanup with the drip pan. I would highly reccomend this to all. It can be used indoors or out and on the pedastal or on your table or counter. I'm buying another one for a Christmas Gift.
Rated 5 out of 5 by diabeticbaby Great item for health conscience families.
I have owned this item for 23 years and have prepared many a meal on it and it is still going strong. I have many family members and friends who have seen mine and wanted one themselves, but it has been a long time since I have seen one in stores. I found this one on sale online this year for less than what I paid for mine 23 years ago and I ordered several to give to family members for Christmas. They are very easy to use and have a easy to clean surface. Just make sure to use utensils that do not break the protective coating on the grill surface and the cleanup will take no time at all.

We just bought this electril BBQ because a friend of ours has one. We absolutely love it! I think the food on this tastes as good as any gas grill! It is awesome! I highly recommend it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whatwethought Replacement for outdoor grill
Bought this product to replace our outdoor grill because the heat shield was damaged. Cost replacement was more expensive than expected so we decided on the George Foreman. It has been wonderful. Set up is easy. It cooks evenly. And it is so nice to be able to keep it on our screen porch and enjoy grilling while avoiding the elements. We discovered that it is easiest to clean the grill while it is still warm. Our advice is to keep it on a low setting and then wipe it with a wet paper towel. We won't miss the last minute propane replacement runs.
Rated 5 out of 5 by onthegrill Great Grill!!!
I am a widow, and when my husband was living he always cooked with charcoal grills. I, on the other hand, never got the hang of charcoal. So, I got a Foreman and I absolutely love it. All my grilled foods are well cooked and it's such an easy grill to use and to take care of. Now, I look forward to grilling out in the summers. My son's girlfriend was so impressed with the performance and versatility of this grill, she's now asking for one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lissette1 Exactly what I expected
First off, I just want to say that for those complaining about charcoal/flame/smoky flavor missing from your meal, please stop a moment and think. I'm sure that before you bought this grill you knew that it was electric, so how are you supposed to expect the above flavors? No where was it even advertised that you would get this little bonus if you buy this grill. You were not deceived. To give it 4 stars because of this is unfair. If you didn't know, then you should have researched it so that you knew what you were buying.
Naturally, I did my own research about this grill, so I knew what to expect. I bought it, and I'm very happy with it. I just grilled some vegetables and pork chops and it was wonderful. Always keep an eye out for the food. If you're not careful, you can burn it. Yes, it gets really hot. So play around with the settings until you get you're food just right. A no brainer if you ask me.
This is a great grill for an apartment. I have a small kitchen, but I was able to place it on the kitchen counter and it fits perfectly. It's beautifully designed and the clean up was no hassle at all. In fact, I believe that spraying the grill grooves with Pam cooking oil makes clean up a breeze (I did it). It looks durable and you can feed a family of four with it. You can place 4 good size pork chops and veggies and everyone will love it. I already have a friend ordering a new grill for herself when she saw mine (she loves to grill). She liked the color and the big dome, which is great to cook your food evenly. My cooking time took a little longer since i love my meat well done.
There are no regrets here. I give it the full 5 stars it deserves because it does what's expected of it with no gimmicks. You want smoky/charcoal whatever.. then buy one of those grills. If you just want to grill great tasting, evenly cooked healthy meals, then I highly recommend this product, especially for those who live in small apartments. You won't be disappointed.. Do your research, you'll see.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LKS01 With a bit of skepticism, I ordered the George Foreman 240" outdoor/indoor grill. What a pleasant surprise!! Steaks, chops, burgers, etc., have the taste of a fine steakhouse. Haven't had the grill very long, so still in the "trial and error" stage. Have learned that lean cuts can easily dry out if temperature not controlled (start out on highest # for yummy carmelization, then turn down to a lower # for thorough cooking). Great on higher fat content meats such as ribeyes and 80/20 burgers.
Only negative is the clean-up; takes longer to clean than it does to cook! However, all-in-all, worth the price and hassle of cleaning for the wonderful chargrilled smell and taste. (Wouldn't advise using indoors due to amount of smoke during grilling.)
Rated 5 out of 5 by shorttimer very good item
The grill is as good as any of the G/F units we have in our home.. We use this in our RV and do not have the mess of a charcoal of gas unit. It cleans in half the time and the taste of the food is great..

This is a great product and being that I love to grill fish, this fits me well. So go out and buy this product. I think you will love it as well!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by jjjbenwinn Awesome for a party in the Winter
My daughter has a birthday in January but always wanted a BBQ for her party. We bought this and grilled hamburgers and hot dogs right in the kitchen. It was awesome!
It was money well spent! I would highly recommend this to anyone. Only issue we has was that we cooked so much that the grease catcher spilled a little, but that was more our doing.
It was really easy to clean and a lot of fun!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PreciousLittleMe Just Had To Have One!
I am LOVING my Indoor/Outdoor Grill. Thank you George F., my neighbor and Walmart reviewers.!! My neighbor ordered hers from HSN or QVC and she told me the convenience of having one and considering I am a griller, I said, I got to have one. It is Soooo big!! I have a charcoal grill and previously had a Gas grill which I've gotten my use out of and just threw it out. I require the need to have two grills because grilling is part of my life. I listened to the reviews of how easy it is to clean up and that's been proven. And all the other pros about it. And the assembly can be done by a 2 year old. It took me 10-15 min to put it together. You Can't go Wrong by ordering one. And the Free Shipping!. Wow!! I feel complete now that I have finally got this gilll because I was on Walmart's site everyday or every other day looking for it. My neighbor was cracking up at me because I shared it on Facebk. LOL. What can I say, it was a Must Have for me.
