George Foreman grills

#1
LIDL



If you need a new one, or haven't owned one....... hell of a good price.

They have a limited range, but for things like chops, sausages, chicken breasts etc, they are brilliant, because you can walk away for a while, they cook all round at the same time, and a lot less messy than a grill or frying pan for many things.

Might even be worth a sticky, I'd be grateful for more ideas......

I chucked mine, they make loads of smoke and smells and are a pig to clean. A tip on cleaning them do it straight away with a big handful of wet kitchen roll or it dries like bell metal.

Rosti works. Couple of boiled potatoes, grated. Salt and pepper and a splash of olive oil. Mix well, make into cakes and chuck them on the sandwich toaster or grill. Keep a couple in a sealed container in the fridge for when you get back from the pub. Heat it up, fried egg on top and a slice of toast to mop up the yolk and brown sauce.

Jarrod, you have to accept they don't last as long as your grannie's Radiation cooker.

I usually keep mine for 2-3 years, then bin it because it's too manky to clean.

I love them because they are cleaner than most other grilling methods for that time and the way they cook on all sides at once.

I tend to clean them before the next time, by turning them on, when they acheive temp, turning off the power, then giving them a clean with a damp scouring pad.

Try the method I've described it's better.

Or get the one with removable hot plates :) like what I did. Mind you the ******* got a hot spot in the middle you have to be wary of.

Totally agree. I bought one with removeable plates, very easy to clean. The brand? Anthony Worrall "the Cheese Thief" Thompson!

We've got a G.F grill and it's superb! I never had nicer burgers than coming off that grill.

George Foreman? I've been looking for a George Formby grill?
I've got a Joe Frazier grill.

(Anyone too young to remember when George Foreman boxed should ask their dad to explain that.)

Agreed just have the sink full of hot water, finish cooking and drop the plates into the hot water. Eat food come back and give the hotplates a wipe with kitchen towel rinse and job done takes seconds.
