We own an older model grill that was inherited from a family member when they upgraded to a bigger one. The nonstick coating has a scratch here and there and the lid is a bit loose, but it still works beautifully.
We use ours for everything from grilling hamburgers to panini. Even with the nonstick surface, we get a decent sear on the outside of the meat, and we like that we don’t have to use extra oils during cooking. If we need cooked meat for a recipe, it’s a lot easier to cook it on the George Foreman instead of making more chaos on the stovetop.
At the beginning, it took a bit of trial and error to figure out cooking times for everything we wanted to cook. Now we have it down to a science and keep a note on the refrigerator listing the approximate cooking times for our favorites.
We also like that the grill is easily cleaned and doesn’t take up a lot of storage space. We wish we’d had one (or even known about these grills!) when we were in college – a George Foreman grill would have been perfect for dorm living.
Eventually, we’d like to switch to a larger grill so we can cook more at once. But for now our little compact model suits us just fine!
