It' important to read the manuals that come with any appliance rather than make a costly mistake. I don't know which grill you have but I have the Lean Mean Grilling Machine and I absolutely love it. It makes the best burgers, fish and chicken breasts ever with no fat and the fat in the meat runs off. I know my manual states that you can't grill thick foods like steak, chops and sausages so maybe that's the problem. I don't know if your particular grill has those recommendations but it's worth reading to find out. If you CAN cook sausages on your grill then I would lay them in the grooves and keep turning them or they will scorch on one side. Cook them til juices run clearn

As for cleaning, I don't have any appliance in my kitchen that is easier to clean than this grill. After grilling, I wipe down with paper towels wet with hot water and it takes about 1 minute to completely clean this grill. I nver had anything stick so cleaning is just a matter of wiping with hot water.

I have had about 4 GF's I find they burn up --some lasted longer then others but I keep buying them because I love this machine. I love making bacon in it, it doesn't shrink up.
When I was using my son's from college inbetween buying a big new one, some times I would let sausage cook and un plug it and leave the meat in there so I didn't burn it. The smaller sizes don't have a temp control on them which is not too handy.
I find the bigger one with the removeable grills is worth the price, other wise I spent a small fortune on paper towels to clean it. Might as well spend the money on the up graded appliance in my opinion.

But then again I am a gadget freak, I LOVE LOVE tooking toys.

What kind of sausages were you cooking? I find that the sausage casing used by some companies does not cook very well. It's burning while the sausage inside is gooey and never really gets done while the outside disintergrates.
Brats are a lot better than they used to be.

I own an older family-size GF grill, but I've never used it for sausages. They are too salty anyway, and I can't have them.

For all the reasons Breezycooking mentioned I tried to give my two away...but could find no takers...So instead of "cabinet clutter" I threw them in the garbage...

You could have donated them to the Salvation Army or something like that.

They would have sold them at a dirt-cheap price and you would have been helping charity needs!

Hi,

Thanks for all the replies,

Just cooked some sauages using the tips given to me from this ste -

Come out okay, slightly burnt on the outside but okay. The inside was red hot and not too dry. When cooking sausages, I always worry about if they have coooked properly. Sausages are so hard for me to cook for some reason..

Thanks again

You have a Kitchen Aid Mixer, right? Buy the grinder attachment, and the sausage stuffer attachment, and make your own sausages, with as much or as little salt as you prefer.
