George Foreman GRP 4B Next Grilleration Removable Plate Grill. I've never had a George Foreman grill before, but I've always wanted one. My mom has one, and she loves it.
As soon as it arrived, my husband wanted to get it open and use it immediately. He cooked a grilled cheese in it. Cooking takes less time than on the stove since the grill heats on both sides. There is no need to turn your food over to cook. The grilled cheese came out like a panini, and he enjoyed it very much.
I wanted to do hamburgers right away. Cooking on the grill outside is fine, but here in Texas, it is so hot that no one wants to stand over a hot grill. You can get the same effect from the George Foreman grill while enjoying your air conditioning!
The Next Grilleration has a patented slope design that ensures that the meat retains flavor while allowing up to 42% of the fat to drain off. That means your burger has about 89 fewer calories (using 80/20 ground chuck). The fat drips into a tray for easy clean up.
We made three extra-large hamburger patties. Our burgers cooked in about 8 minutes (I will not eat a burger if there is any red inside). We opened the grill and put some cheese on them, and it melted quickly since the patties were hot. They tasted great!
Cleanup was easy as well. I used the included nylon spatula to scrape the plates, then a warm, sponge with a little bit of dishwashing detergent. Then I wiped them with a wet paper towel and dried them. If I had wanted to, I could have removed the nonstick plates and put them in the dishwasher, but cleaning them with the sponge was a breeze.
You can check out George Foreman Cooking on Facebook. Right now there is a burger recipe contest going on. You can go vote for your favorite recipe.
So, do you have a George Foreman grill, and do you love it as much as I do?
