Great product. I wanted an electric grill because I live in a townhouse and didn't want to run the risks of having an open flame. The grill can fit a good amount of food on it, it is easy to clean up and it is easy to store. The only issue I have is that the suggested grilling time and heat settings seem to over cook the food, but I guess that's not the grills fault.

This is a great product that enables my family to grill all year round. The food is great. I love grill veggies and this product cooks like a dream. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend it for low fat cooking.

This is a great idea but the product was not built to work the way the idea suggests. The plates don't heat up enough to cook foods - I found that most of the time I was "boiling" things like steak or chops instead of grilling them because the equipment didn't get hot enough. There is no way of controling the temperature - it's either on or off. Cooking times listed in the booklet that comes with the grill are not long enough to cook the foods. The different cooking plates do switch out easily and once you get the hang of securing them they do stay in place nicely and they clean up easily - they just don't cook the way I thought they would. This was a very disappointing purchase.

Great cooking and even temp. Love that you can look at cooking food without having to lift lid. BEST OF ALL, clean-up is a cinch, just place in the dishwasher! Wow! Not your mother's old electric skillet!

I use this skillet almost every day. It's good for quick heat up on foods that just has to be heated. I also use it to make spegetti sauces, that has to cook for hours.I would say this skillet can be used for almost any type of cooking.

it was time to replace my old skillet, so I was on a mission. The cooking area is very large and deeper than it appears. This is perfect for family size meals. My food is cooked more evenly and I?m going to use it every day this summer and I don't have to get the heat like I do from using the stove.

The grill heats up fairly quick. The Indicator light for temperature control is a handy feature. Food on the grill cooks very evenly. Due to small size of grill, aluminum cooking plate and thinness of cooking plate, griddle cools down very quick. This is the only draw back I've experienced. Great value for great price.

Though this is good for now although I decide to buy another one in which the plate where you fry your food or cook your food can be removed to its body so it would be easier to clean. The downside is that you must really be careful not to wet the bottom part or else it will definitely ruin the part where the electric current flows through to heat the pan.

I've used this skillet several times and it performs just as it should. For the price it is a good value. One nice feature is the glass lid with vent. Its nice to keep an eye on your food while slow cooking and it cuts down on splatters.

This is a great skillet for a party or a large family. We used it for parties all the time. The skillet keep food warm and looked good as a buffet server. It cooks the most evenly of any I've ever used. It cleaned up quickly and easily.

This is the second George Foreman Grill that I've purchased. The first one was used to much, that I basically wore it out. I am a single Mom and the convenience of having a grill that I don't have to worry about installing propane tanks to is such awesome. I love the way it cooks the food and it's easy to move around in case I want to use it indoors. Love it!

Purchased this electric fry pan so that my husband can fry latkes (potato pancakes) during Hanukkah. He fries outside on the Lanai so that the house doesn't smell like fried foods. It's been great. Keeps the heat even and cooks beautifully. Only small thing is that some of the Teflon coating has come off the center of the pan even though we used Teflon spatulas.

My husband has wanted one of these for quite a while. I purchased it shortly after Christmas, and we use it at least twice a week. It's great that we can cook a meal for three and enjoy a family meal together. Previously, if we had breakfast, it needed to be cooked one person at a time; this did not allow us to eat together and still enjoy warm food. We are trying to change our eating habits, and this is helping. Since it has a non stick surface we are not using oil. The grill has a slight slant so any grease coming from the food is drained and collected into a cup. The clean up is quick and easy and the temperature is adjustable. the value was great, I was not able to locate one this size at this price in the stores. We are very happy with it.

This is the best electric frying pan that I have ever owned. I use it at least 4 to 5 times a week. It is large enough to accomodate the size recipes that I need to make with a fmaily of 5. It is easy to keep clean and is very durable. I love it so much that I'm going to buy one more for my parents who love to cook and are great cooks. I have made everything from breakfast foods to gourmet dinner in it. I prefer to use this over a crock pot anyday. I would reccommend that every household purchase one.

This is our second George Foreman indoor/outdoor grill. The first one finally wore out after many years of frequent use. It won't accommodate huge amounts of food, but it will do several burgers and six steaks. We use it when it is just the two of us, and save our bigger gas grill for big gatherings. The food always has the "grill taste" and cooks evenly and efficiently. Clean up is a snap, especially if you oil or grease the grill first. I will admit that I have never taken it inside to use, only because it's not necessary since we have a big patio protected from the weather. I would be hesitant to use it indoors because of the smoke factor, but I know people who do. This grill is great for smaller households who don't want to mess with gas or charcoal. I highly recommend it!

I had an electric griddle and gave it away when I moved to smaller place but fond myself needing one again in new bigger space. this one was priced right and good size. when I got it I was concerned by the plastic grease and warming trays like how they were going to heat up, metal would have made more sense. I cooked pancakes and bacon on it first morning for 10 people and when I was cleaning up I found the drip tray melted from grease and after several uses so did the warming tray. the griddle itself has a recessed trim that food drippings get stuck in, since its not to be submerged I went two more uses before I couldn't stand the crusty food and ran water all over it and used baby bottle scrub brush to get in the cracks. I let is dry and didn't use for quite awhile because I was afraid after getting it so wet. the griddle itself is great but cord is too short and with the melted trays which we now mold tin foil into every time I sort of hate the product and only use occasionally now

I am very satisfied with this appliance for a number of reasons. I like the shape as it fits well on my countertop and the clear glass lid is nice for viewing the progress of the food itself. The knobs are adequate as this type of cooking doesn't require highly specific temperature settings. It cleans quite easily and of course that is always a plus. I have tenants in my home since the economic downturn and they are quite satisfied with this item also. The size is suited to a variety of shapes of meat, fish and poultry items as well as is useful for making sauces and allowing the liquids to reduce readily. It is a practical purchase for the price and I would be satisfied with giving this item to my grown children, family and friends as a gift this holiday season.

I wanted to find an inexpensive griddle with a large surface area and this one seemed to fit the bill. It heats up quickly and I can cook a whole package of bacon in probably 1/3 the time it was taking me with a conventional stove-top pan. The distribution of heat across the surface is not very even, but once you know where the hot spots are it's easy enough to manage by shifting the food around. There's a fair amount of plastic parts so there may be some durability issues in the long run, but so far it's functionally competent. The non-stick surface works as advertised and clean up is pretty straightforward. I have not yet tried the warming tray. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the product and its value for the money spent.

I ordered this buffet server for use at my annual Christmas party. I chose this model because it a) has the versatility of use as a three-pan buffet server or as a griddle/warming plate and b) has individual heat controls for each of the three pans. And WOW! Does this product deliver! The center (cooking) section heated refrigerator-cold gumbo to boiling in about 15 minutes (which I then turned down to a nice "keep warm" temp for the rest of the evening). The side (warming) sections heated frozen rice and ice-cold crawfish etouffee to the proper temp in about 25 minutes without burning or scorching the food. When the etoufee ran out, I was able simply to turn off that section while keeping the rice and gumbo warm for another couple of hours. The item looks great, feels sturdy, and has nice bonus features like small slots in the lids for the spoon/ladle. The lids are plastic rather than glass, but frankly, for a big party where people will be lifting the lids and going in/out, in/out of the food all evening, that's probably a better option. I admit I haven't used the griddle/warming plate yet, but based on how well this thing worked as a server, I have no doubt it will perform that job just as well. I look forward to many years of use for this gem!

I have used this grill several times now and I love it! Right off the bat, I'll tell you to invest in a meat thermometer, grilling rubs and sauces, and silicones tongs and spatulas to make your experience with this grill the very best! While it is completely different from the fire grilling of a gas or charcoal grill, it makes delicious meals. The benefits of using this type of this grill are many: non-stick, can be used outdoors or moved inside should it start to rain, clean design, super easy to clean and store, no open flame, doesn't take up alot of room on your deck/patio, holds alot of food, heats up quickly, is light and easy to move, so totally easy to assemble. Can also be removed from the stand and placed on a cart or table. The quality is decent and you can order replacement parts. A couple of tips that will improve your overall experience with this grill- I marinate the meat for several hours prior to grilling, using a smokey flavored marinade. When making burgers, I add a bit of dry rub to the beef. I also close the vent on the top of the grill cover to keep the meat moist, opening it at the very end of grilling and splash on a bit of bbq sauce. This allows for a more authentic grilled burger taste. Keeping the vent closed the whole time "poaches" the burgers- this happened the first time I used the grill. Although, I dressed them up a bit and no one even noticed. I've since metered the moisture with the vent and made some awesome burgers! I also made baby beef ribs and pork ribs ( the boneless strips) which I had marinated overnight. I put them on the superhot preheated grill to sear them, then put on the cover, and grilled them on lowest heat for 45 minutes. They were excellent! I also made chickens breast (boneless skinless), marinated with Charlie Biggs' apple bbq sauce. I used a meat thermometer for these, as I always tend to overcook chicken. I cooked to internal temp of 165. They were nice and moist! It takes a little practice to simulate that authentic grilled flavor on this type of grill, but it's totally worth it! if you need a grill that would be good for a single person or small family, an elderly person, a small balcony or deck, a mum with small children, or condo/apt. that prohibits open flame, this grill is great! Lastly, while my grill is very sturdy and stable on the single arm base, I have 2 large dogs that are like bulls in a china shop, so I plan to build a stocky table to use and store my grill. I bought a 12 foot 3 prong heavy-duty extension cord, which I store with the grill plug, coiled in the bottom portion of the grill, under the grilling plate. I have also purchased a round 22 inch smoker cover that fits perfectly. Hope this review is helpful in your decision to buy this grill. Enjoy!!!
