Just got a Foreman grill

They had the 24 sq. in. one at LNT on sale, 60% off, plus I used the extra 20% off coupon on it. I'm going to try it tonight when I cook the chicken for dinner in a little bit. My only complaint right now is, the power cord is too short. You're kinda limited to where you can put it. Either that or my friends apt. doesn't have enough outlets. LOL!!!

Oh, and there's no on/off switch either. I don't like that cause I have a tendancy to leave things plugged in when they need to be unplugged.

What cut of chicken are you cooking and how are you seasoning it?

As for the short chord, you should be able to use an extension chord that accommodates small appliances, and/or a power strip, which has an on/off chord.

Congrats Clutch.....I love mine. The only things I've made on it are burgers and chicken breasts but the meat is always so juicy.

We've used our Foreman-like grill to cook fish, chicken, pork chops, ham slices, cuts of beef, bacon, hash brown patties. All sorts of stuff. Once you get used to it, you'll think of all kinds of things to cook on/in it.

I bought one back in the late '90s.

Don't use it as much as I used to though.

It was just plain chicken breasts. I didn't put anything on them and I think I left them on a little too long. They were good none the less. I think I am going to try our flounder on it tomorrow or soon after.

I just got finished washing it and That is a PITA too! LOL!!

I got water in every single place in that darn grill I could! Oh well, worth the 32 bucks.

I was thinking about the extension cord with an on/off switch while Crystal and I were enjoying the chicken. I really enjoyed it. I was amazed at how much fat actually ran off the chicken. (Wow, it sounds like I am in the commercial for the thing, huh?)

Oh, I also got one of those chopper/dicer things. The "As seen on TV" one.

This is the closest thing I could find:

Nicer Dicer

The one I got has the bottom where you can measure what you are chopping and a light green handle.

I ordered one with the removable plates last week, quite inexpensive at $39.88 shipped. This will replace my old model which was so difficult to clean I rarely used it. Grilled salmon, gotta love it!

I love my foreman grill. I have the one with removeable plates and on/off switch plus a timer and temperature gauge. I make alot of it, chicken, burgers, chops, quesadillas, paninis, veggies - the list goes on. With the removeable plates, clean up is very easy. Glad you liked the chicken Clutch - keep on grillin!

I'll have to remember this and keep my eye out for one to replace the one I have.

If any of you have the older GF grill - the one with the nonrevovable plates, just get some Dawn Power Dissolver and spray some of it on both plates after it cools down and let it sit for 15 minutes.

It'll just lift all that cooked-on burnt-on junk right off, making the grilll a snap to clean!! I know. I've already tried it a few times.
