George Foreman Grill Reviews

No - We had to switch off when meat was burning
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

We agree with dj April 2011, we had to switch off when meat was burning, then turn back on when simmered down. It needs a thermostat to control heat. Once we stopped using it, our electricity bill went down too probably due the switching off & on so often.

No - Too Messy, Too Hot
1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star

We recived one as a christmas gift in 2010. We were curious about them but did not want to waste our money on it if it did not work. Well, I followed the directions, and it smoked up the house. The hamburgers were raw in the center and burnt on the outside. The surface of the machine gets so hot you can not touch it to press down on the meat to even them out or compress the burgers. The grill does not come apart and can not be immursed in liqid so cleaning up a greasy, messy, slippery grill is ackward to say the least. We had hoped that we had finally found a suitable substitute for grilling in the winter time, unfortunatly this is not it. We decided to throw it away because we would not wish it’s problems on anyone.

I got this as a gift in 2006 and I have to say it’s one of the best gifts I have received. I use it for just about everything, burgers, hotdogs, chicken, grilled cheese, veggies, and bread. Food is not greasy (unless you add fat) I lost the plastic scraper and the drip tray when I moved, but I still use it, I just place the edge of the grill over the sink and just let it drip there, talk about easy clean up. The grill itself cleans up pretty quickly too. I dropped my grill, the exterior cracked, but I still use it after all these years. Great product for those living in smaller quarters.

We’ve had a couple of them, one cracked so got a larger grill. After awhile I stopped using it and went back to my cast iron grill pan. Found food with bones in it weren’t handled all that well, the bone stuck up so the grill wouldn’t touch all of the meat. Also, I think some items came out kind of dry. That said, it does the job, just not as well as a good ol’ cast iron grill pan.

Have had this fantastic product for close on 4 years now and it works so well – cooks both sides at the same time; meat or fish can be cooked partially frozen; love the grill stripes! A bit of olive oil sprayed on the non-stick surfaces ensures non-sticking but George – YOU ARE MY HERO ! If I could rate >5, I would !

I use this almost daily….Works well but often leaves the counter messy with drippings. Should be used near a vent fan or your smoke alarm may become your dinner alarm.

I ordered a small George Foreman Grill four years ago using credit card points that equaled roughly $25. I love the fact that it cooks both sides of meat at the same time. There is no need to flip the food over. It gets quite cold during the winter in Michigan so it’s great to be able to grill meat indoors anytime. I live alone and don’t often cook for others so the smallest model works fine for me but most households should buy the larger units so they can serve an entire family at once.
