I've happily been using the original GF grill for over 8 years, but I just upgraded to the Next Grilleration, which has a variable temperature of 300-425 F, in 25 degree increments. This is too complex!
Does anyone here know what temperature the original GF grill thermostat kept itself at?
Well, you should have gotten a booklet (Instruction Manual) with the new grill - and somewhere it will have a customer support toll-free phone number. Call and ask them - they are the most likely to know.
I'm not insensitive to your problem .. I'm just trying to point you to the folks who are most likely to be able to answer your question.
I'm guessing the old one was in the range of 325-350 F.

Yep. Shortly after I posted my question, I decided to search the manual again to see if it does mention the temperature of the original. What I found, however, was a customer support email address. I just got their response, which was:
Thank you for your email. The George Foreman grills have a cooking temperature of approximately 400 degrees. This temperature can vary +/- 50 degrees dependent on various factors. Typically I would say that the temperature would be maintained between 375 and 400 degrees.
