I wanted a new foreman grill and this one seemed ideal. Sadly, I am in the process of sending it back. The first few times I grilled steaks and burgers it worked fine. Tried the waffles next, and they came out good too. Then everything started to stick to the grill plates, leaving half the food by the time I did get the food off. And no amount of recommended cleaning method - even in the dishwasher - removed the brown stains on the bottom plate. Strangely, the brown marks are now showing up on the plates after being turned on, BEFORE the meat is even put on the grill. Too much money to pay for a waffle maker. Definitely not recommended. I'll be on the lookout for a foreman grill like my old one, with the cast iron plates.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nicholas440 It works but not as expected
Years ago I bought one of the very first George Forman grills that were made. It was not very good, it has no off /on switch and one heat setting which was hot and it was quite messy and hard to clean. Fast forward now to the latest Forman Grill produced. I've been using it to grill chicken breasts, make waffles, make griled cheese sandwiches and I've made turkey burgers as well. At first the unit worked ok, and food did not stick to the plates, however now I'm noticing that no matter what we put on it , after a few minutes if you open it the food is stuck to the top plate and has to be peeled off with a silicone spatula since I dont want to use metal or scratch it in any way. The grill does work, but clean up is a messy job on this one, it was fine for a while, just rinse the plates off with hot water and a wash cloth with a few drops of Dawn liquid and the plates were clean as new. I'm just very disappointed in this product, I've gotten all sorts of Ceramic Coated pots and pans recently and they are really NON STICK no matter what I cook. Another drawback is the grease catching tray, you need to be extra careful when it's almost full so you don't knock it over as I once did onto the counter top and had a real mess to clean up. I've been cooking for over 50 years, and know what I'm doing in the kitchen. The George Forman needs an ON OFF switch on top so you dont get your hand burned turning it OFF as I did, (switch is on the side near the bottom) . Also the temperature knob is very flimsy and it's not a precision dial as many appliances have. Removing and replacing the plates is good, thats easy and well done. This may sound like nit picking but it needs better rubber feet to keep it from sliding on the counter when you open it up, it offen wants to slide backwards. Overall I only give it 3 stars, and I seriously wish I did not buy it, because it's not one of my regular use appliances anymore, I got tired of the food getting stuck to the top plate, I hope you have better luck, it says do not spray the plates with cooking spray so I have not tried to do that. In my opinion it's not worth the money or the frustration when the food is stuck, or the tray is full of grease , it should have a built in removeable grease tray as others have done, like the Cuisinart grill.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NETBOOK FAN Easiest to use to date!
This has to be our favorite Foreman grill to date. It's out third and the second we've had with removable plates. However, these plates are different. They clean completely with no residue stuck on, unlike our last Foreman grill. We love the broil feature and use this to bake food more quickly than we can in the oven. We recommend this product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by yellow bud Not very happy
I have an older grill and love it. It was about to die so got this one, not happy is a lot smaller then the old one. Doesn't get as hot and the ceramic plates are peeling already and have only used about 12 times. The deep grill pan is only about half as deep and I used it a lot and now will not be deep enough for the things I cooked in it. Am sending back and will try to find one like my old one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jreno How Did I live Without??
So love this item. I had one of the original George's and got rid of it many years ago. Due to cleaning was a pain and too small to cook with for a family. I saw this one and had to order. Love I can cook 6 chicken Kabobs on it at once. 3 decent size steaks no more waiting to eat with the family because I'm still cooking. Cleaning it is so easy the kids do it. I love the different features it has also the removable plates. So happy I bought this so is my 17 yr. son he wants one for when he moves out some day.

This unit is beautiful but it wound not grill. I had to return it. the plates are very small. disappointed in this George foreman product.
Rated 3 out of 5 by wwd Side handle broke off
I like the grill, esp. the griddle with the sides for eggs, etc. But the handle broke off when I was washing waffle maker plate. Need to be careful.

I had an older Foreman grill, as well as a waffle iron. This replaced both and is much better than my older model! First: You can adjust the temperature! Second: You can put cheese on a burger and have it melt! Third: The plates are much easier to get on and off, and they clean up very well in the dishwasher! I wish the power cord was a little longer so I could move out from under my cupboards better, but it's a very minor problem! I've cooked burgers, made waffles, and I'm making nachos for a football game this afternoon! Love this machine!!
