Summary: Thanks George. The George Foreman Grill is a welcome addition to my kitchen. I can cook a healthy meal in about the same time as using the microwave to warm-up a meal. I am extremely satisfied with the changeable grill plates and the ease of cleaning.
Summary: This grill is awesome!!! I've only owned it for a few weeks but so far me and my wife LOVE it! The meals are very easy to prepare and the part that everyone dreads - cleaning - couldn't be easier due to removable heating plates. I'm planning on getting one for my parents, too!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy to Start, Even Heat, HEALTHY, Versatile
Summary: Amazon seems to have a bad shipment of these grills. The first one I ordered arrived with one plate that had all four corners chipped off and another plate with non-stick coating flaking off. It also had the Styrofoam packaging between the plates partially melted. I returned it for a second grill. The second grill had a broken tilt-lock mechanism and the grill would rock from flat to tilt mode every time I closed the top down.
Summary: I love my G5 because it is so easy to clean and is so versitile with the changeable plates. We grilled steak, zuchinni, onions, peppers, and corn all for one meal. Then we made waffles the next morning and panni sancwiches for lunch with grilled salmon for dinner. The next morning we grilled bacon and eggs and then made cookies. I like mine so well that I bought one for my favorite Aunt for her birthday. She likes hers too.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy to Start, Even Heat, Lots of Space, Makes healthy meals, Use almost daily
Summary: After several months of light use, nonstick coating came off the removable plates. We took great care cleaning the plates, strictly adhering to the guides described in the product manual, but this happened anyway. Here is the worst part: even though our purchase was still under warranty, Salton was not willing to send us any replacement plates.
Summary: This is a great grill... Temperature Control: It does not have a digital temperature read-out, but I do not trust them anyway. If you want to know the temperature of your cooking surfaces, get a good non-contact IR thermometer like Mini Temp Non-contact Thermometer Gun With Laser Sighting. Measuring with a non-contact thermometer lets you see Hot and Cold spots.
Summary: I owned a George Foreman Grill previous to this one. The only thing I didn't like about it was the grill plates weren't removable. I was very excited to replace it with this one so I could more easily wash the grill. I have NOT been happy. The top grill plate started sticking to food shortly after I started using it. Now when I grill anything, I open the grill and the food either sticks to the top grill or comes tumbling down and out of the grill.
