I've just seen the commercials for it, and someday I plan on getting one. I've gone trough 2 so far, that get very frequent use. The second is on its last leg, with parts starting to wear and stuff. This new grill I love the concept of as the plates can be washed in the dishwasher. Cleaning was (and is) my only gripe about the original GF Grill products.

I'm going to get one, for sure!

I've read that this is the best of the bunch but cannot speak from personal experience.

hmmmmmmm, interesting. the GF and the Cuisinart are the same price. With that knowledge, I'd probably get the Cuisinart

when I left home at the age of 17, I had nothing but a sleeping bag a few tools and CB radio, about 6 months later I bought a second hand grill almost exactly the same as the one mentioned in here, it was a late 70`s early 80`s thing.
I used it almost everyday and my little gas camping stove took a back seat, this little thing lasted me a good 2.5 years before dying a death, I was genuinely upset to see it go!
so yes, I rate them (or at least that one I had) Very highly!
all that was a good 20+ years ago now, so maybe they`re still as good?

If the Quisinart had the changeable plates, I would get that one, but, I like the different plates on the Foreman Grill.

Look again. It does have interchangeable plates.

"With four separate cooking options, it can handle everything from pancakes to sausages to grilled cheese to steaks, hamburgers and panini. It helps you prepare more servings of more kinds of food in less time, so you can cook for a crowd -- no one has to wait! Simply change the cooking plates and adjust the floating hinge to use the Griddler as a Contact Grill, a Panini Press, or your choice of an extra-large double Open Grill or Griddle.
Cooking plates and 2 dishwasher-safe drip cups help drain away grease for healthy cooking
Sturdy panini-style handle with floating hinge to adjust to thickness of food
Both sets of plates are nonstick, easy to remove, and dishwasher safe
Dishwasher-safe scraping tool for easy cleanup
Brushed stainless steel housing
Convenient cord storage keeps extra cord out of the way and makes storage easy
Recipe book with 40 recipes
Instructions
Cuisinart USA Limited 3-year warranty"

I have a George Foreman and absolutely love it! I would imagine there is little difference between the George and Cuisinart - the concept is great! I have cooked burgers, chicken breasts, pork chops, bacon, grilled cheese, veggies, potatos and paninis on mine and everything turns out great. I have the one with removable grates that are dishwasher safe. Cleanup is a breeze! I highly recommend it!

I have one that was given to me a long time ago. I don't use it but now I just might. Cooking for one is for the birds.

I have a GF grill. We love the stupid thing. We will probably get the new one with the interchangable plates with Christmas money.
