Angry gt express 101

BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I

While watching watching late night tv I saw a advertisement for the gt express 101, buy one and get one for free. Well it looked good so I preceedeed to order one. $39.99 plus shipping.and handling, (THEY DO NOT TELL YOU WHAT THOSE CHARGES ARE) before receiving it was charged $49.95 and the following week was charged another $13.90 for some dumb cook books that I spicificaly answered no to over and over. Once I received the gt express and tried to use it found that using the old fry pan was faster so I returned it for $14.02 shipping charges. While waiting for my refund I was charged another payment of $19.95. When I called the company I was told that they did not received the returns, when I told them I checked the tracking number and it was received, they put me on hold "to check", when they returned I was told that a credit of $39.95 would be credited to my account plus $9.95 for the dumb cookbooks. so lets see $49.95, plus 13.95, plus 19.95, plus the cost to ship it back $14.02

A total of $78.87 out of my pocket , I am at a loss of aprox $ 40.00

So sorry to hear that you were ripped off.

This item more than likely was on one of those blasted paid programs, which I hate with a passion!

Those **** advertisements just clog the airwaves and are so ridiculously annoying!! The biggest abuser of this is the Food Network which shuts down regular programing to run those dumb stupid ads from between 4 & 5am to about 9am, advertising just about everything from exercise equipment to make-up to gadgets for the kitchen, small appliances and whatever else have you.

Dozens of channels run these ridiculous programs every morning! And if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!

If you already have a George Forman G5, you can buy a sixth plate that will do the same thing as this does, and the G5 plates are removable and can be tossed into the dishwasher.

I don't have the later model.

I got the other one where you must clean the grill plates while on the unit - the ones that first came out.

I can get that same shape with the stovetop reversable griddle.

It wouldn’t work for me. The recipes include a lot of processed pre-made food and I’m a meat lover and most meat would have to be de-boned, de-skinned, pounded flat and cut down to size – too much work.

Any premade meats I get, such as deli and cold cuts, I made sure that it's low-sodium. Even bacon!

I Have One

I Actually Have A Gt Express And I Really Do Like It. I Have Made Things From Cake To Chicken In Mine And They Turned Out Great. I Received The Second One Free And You Do Have To Pay $15 For Shipping On It. I Gave It To My Mom And She Makes Omelets All Of The Time. You Obviously Cant Make A Big Meal In It But The Portions Arent Bad. I Say Go Ahead And Get Her One.

I bought the Omelette maker by gourmet for $5 special at Walgreens does the same same paperwork

works fine for a snack or people living alone ideal quick easy

saw the adverts on TV was interested price seemed high could not understand why they would throw in two and then the shipping cost the same as the item Doubles the price without you realising the situation untill it is too late

annoying

Just bought one at Goodwill for $3.00. Tried it and I probably paid what it is worth. It was fun to use, but it will probably go back to Goodwill after a few more uses! Went on the site and you have to PAY to be in Cathy's recipe club. Don't like that at all.

I admit that I love Kathy Mitchell!!! She is soooooo weird.

I can watch the GT Express commercial anythime its on. I've seen it at leat 50 times.

The "Turbocooker" was better, though, IMO.
