George Foreman - any good?

Looking to splash out on a new gadget and was considering buying the George Foreman "Lean Mean" grilling machine. Has anyone used it yet? Is it worth buying? Thanks.

Ann

Hello!

I love my George Foreman grill. The only problem I've ever run into is with T bone steaks. The long bone keeps the top grill surface from cooking the top of the steak evenly.

Take Care!
-Eric

Does it really remove most of the fat? I heard that you get loads of fat being pushed out of your food. Also, what else, apart from meat can you use it for?

Thanks!

My suggestion is that you run don't walk to get a Foreman grill. People think I must be getting a commission on selling these; but I sincerely adore mine. I'm getting a larger size cause I've used the original for some years now and they have the controls for the larger grills. Anything that cooks this well and is so easy to clean up gets my vote! Bacon, fish, burgers, steaks - it does it all, plus makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever! Can you tell, I'm really sold on this product. Plus it does get rid of a tremendous amount of fat (virtually all of it)......(I'm available for commercials Mr. Foreman!) LOL, Carol

I like mine because my son can use it to cook frozen teriyaki chicken filets in about 10 minutes. <bold>HE</bold> gets to cook and clean it and he feels good about doing it himself. It has really built up his self-esteem about cooking. He cooks for his friends when they come over and they think that is soooo cool.

George Forman Grill

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT AND USE IT AT LEAST THREE OR FOUR TIMES A WEEK

I am a real grilled swiss cheese fanatic and put a slice of tomato on before grilling:D
