This was purchased to replace my George Foreman G5 grill that had a heating element failure. This seems to be a common problem based on internet reviews and comments from others and my own experience. Replacement parts do not appear to be available anywhere, making this a disposable appliance if you have a problem. I already had the 5 plates from the G5, and the only worn ones were the basic grill plates which this comes with. That made it the perfect replacement as the grills interchange with my old G5 plates. I considered buying a different brand of contact grill, but many reviewers complained about failure to get hot enough for proper grilling. The George Foremans cook hot when they are working right, so that's what I bought. We use the GF exclusively for frying bacon now. It is sized right for 5 or 6 slices and cooks fast using the grill plates and the medium or high setting. There were a couple interesting things I discovered upon opening the package: 1. A sticker reminding the buyer not to tilt the grill until AFTER grilling is done and the unit is turned off. Never noticed that instruction on my G5. Hope this prolongs the life of this one. 2. This one has a 3 year warranty. Not sure the last one did. I registered the purchase online and filed my receipt with the instruction manual attached in case this one blows an element. 3. The plastic case is a metalflake burgandy color that looks pretty cool. The G5 was solid red. Bottom line: It may not be perfect, but it's a pretty good grill and a great waffle maker with the waffle grill plates from the G5. It appears this style (including the G4 and G5) may have been replaced by the GRP99 which has electronic controls that add more complexity, so I would recommend buying one of these while they are still available.
This grill is the best to cook indoors. Saves money on charcoal and if its raining you can carry on inside. The taste of the cooked product with a little liquid smoke and its just as good as outdoors. You have your grill marks on the meat just like outdoor grills. The grill cooks from the top and the bottom and cooks really fast that way. Steaks about 8 min. depending on how you like them. The pan catches the fat and there is no problem & the product you cook is still juicy. The top part seems a little loose, but its built that way. They snap on and off to clean, so if you clean them reasonably fast after cooking, they are easy to clean.( NOT OVER NIGHT) The controls have low, mediem and high. The light goes on green when hot enough to cook, which is pretty fast, within min. Its big enough to accomodate approx 4 small steak, 2 or 3 large, or approx 6 large burger patties. The color is a bit darker than the pic. We are very pleased with this and use it almost every week. It is a great way to grill inside and this one is a real winner! For the price this one was for us! The Major, my old man loves bragging about it & some of his cooking! Great for couples or even a single person. Perhaps even a family of 4.
I have owned George Foreman grills before and this one is the best yet. Love the removeable plates for dishwasher cleaning.
Product is great and much easier to clean than my former GF Grills. Love it!
I bought this grill thinking I was going to be able to buy the extra grill plates that it advertises on the package, which it turns out i am going to need because after less than 2 weeks the non-stick coating is already coming off and the gril comes with 2 unmatched plates. It is extremely hard to track down plates for this grill. After several weeks of going back and forth with their so-called customer service they finally gave me a number to call and a web site to go to. I am not about to just call and order plates without seeing what i am getting and the web site they told me to go to does not even list my model number. They potentially have a great product, specially for me being in a wheelchair. I dont have to pick up the whole thing to clean it, but if i cant get parts for it and it is falling apart this soon, they really need to rethink this grill...
I have had George Foreman grills for over 10 years and this one is the best yet. The removable plates make it so much easier to clean and the agjustable temp is a big improvement. the adjustable angle is great, I can make grilled cheese or other hot sandwitches whithout the cheese running off. Huge improvement. LOVE THIS GRILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just bought this grill and have only used it once for grilled chicken breast, the chicken was good and cooked really fast which was awesome because I am a full-time working mother and there's never enough time in a day. So I am happy with the grill and if that is all you are looking for then i would recommend this one. The only reason I would not recommend this one t oa friend is because I have been searching online for the additional plates to purchase, especially the waffle plates, but have not been able to find them anywhere!! Even the website does not have them listed, so I would recommend Saving yourself the hassle and spend a little extra money upfront to get the one with the additional plates included instead of the basic.
MY FIRST GRILL OF THIS KIND, LOVE IT, CLEANS UP EASY. I ONLY WISH IT HAD COME WITH A BOOKLET ON HOW LONG TO COOK CERTAIN THINGS
Great for grilling veggies with the meat. I've used it for 3 years and still love it! I use a soft fingernail brush to clean before putting in the dishwasher as marinates can get cooked into the grooves. We've recently purchased one for mother-in-law who also loves it for quick and easy meal preparation. I've started with both thawed or frozen meat. Both work equally well. We own several sizes, but I prefer the one with the removable plates.
Perfect indoor grill - provides healthy meals in minutes. The only negative was a lack of cooking instructions with the product - had to go online to get cooking times/temperatures. Otherwise a fantastic buy at a great price.
This is a wonderful little grill! Cooks great tasting food very quickly and easy cleanup. I just love the removeable grates. It meets all my expectations, however, it would be great if the cord was just a little bit longer.
I would recommend this to a friend.
I got my wife a Cuisinart grill (with removable trays too) to replace the George Foreman grill we had that had worn out - after 4 years (thinking I was "moving up"). Don't kid yourself!! There IS no "upgrade" from the George Foreman Grill !! My Wife tried to "make do" with the Cuisinart (after all, I paid 3 times as much for it), but it just didn't work as well. Finally she asked if she could have "her grill" back, and that's how I got here.
After my outdoor grill started to deteriorate and the replacement parts cost as much as a new grill i decided to get a G.F. grill. I didn't have huge expectations but now i use it all the time. I cook burgers all the time and made some chicken strips and bacon too. The bacon doesn't curl and the chicken and burgers stay juicy. I was surprised by this lil grill.
We have only used the new grill 5 times so far (have only had it for a couple weeks ) it is really so much easier to use, and the meat was delicious and done all the way through.
My spouse went and got this grill after i had told him i specifically wanted another type/brand, He came home proud of his purchased and i was surprised to see it wasn't the one i had wanted however i tried to work with it. The first time i tried it, it would not stay on so i figured maybe it was new. In the excitement of unpacking it he accidentally threw away the instructions so i could not trouble shoot as to why it was chipping in and out, i use it at least once a week however the chipping in and out doesn't make cooking a meal as quick as it should be, its also very frustrating. In his defense it was pretty and it matched the kitchen...But that's the prob- Its just pretty
This product is all that I expected, fast cooking and easy to clean
This is an excellent product. Many things can be cooked on it, including bacon. Clean-up is easy due to the removable plates. This model's dimensions are about 12" X 12" and 5" thick when closed.
I like the product it doesn't take too much space on my counter and it's lightweight, the only thing that I don't like about it is that it dryes the meat too much. I guess it just matter of getting use to eat with no grease at all.
I give the product 4 stars.
Works as an indoor grill when you cannot use an outdoor grill. Does not match outdoor cooking quality, or options. Apparently, in all aspects it is perfectly adequate.
It is a good buy if you only expect to cook for 1 or 2 People. Yes it will hold 5 hamburgers at once, but it will spill over on the counter as far as grease goes, unless you are making mini burgers. (2 1/2 X 2 1/2 in) no bigger. Cooks quickly.
