    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......
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. 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.

    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.

  5. Or get a ridged iron pan for a fiver and put it on the stove.
     
  6. They make great toasted sandwiches.
     
  7. 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.
     
  8. Try the method I've described it's better.

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

  10. When I've got an armful of crispy , marinaded meat, the last thing I'm concerned about is the washing up.


    You're such a GURRRRL.
     
  11. George Foreman? I've been looking for a George Formby grill?

  12. No I hate washing up and that method takes seconds. Otherwise the hot plates just bake on what deposits are left.
     
  13. Is the George Formby grill for doing egg banjos?
