George Foreman Next Grilleration G5 Grill - Red
Everything you need in one product
I recieved mine as a gift 4 years ago and use it at least 2-3 times a week and even more than that during the winter months. I hope it stays on the market for a long time because I will definitely be buying another one when the time comes.The removable plates are great.

I love this Grill
I originally bought my George Foreman for myself when I was out on my own. Due to the poor economy I was forced to move back in with my parents. My dad is a grilling maniac. He would stand outside in the snow trying to grill chicken and steak with his very large propane grill. Now that he found my George Foreman he never goes outside anymore. He uses it every day. He actually used it so much that I had to fight him to get it back when I moved out again. So I ended up buying him one for christmas this year. He loved it!!! He actually cried when I gave it to him. Like I said who doesn't love this grill.

GREAT Gift - used (almost) every day for years
First tip: NEVER use non-stick spray on your grill....EVER! Non-stick spray is difficult to remove when it gums up. Look at baking pans where you've used non-stick spray. You can try to make a wet paste of baking soda and let it rest on the plates for 10-15 minutes then GENTLY brush with a toothbrush and rinse. You must cover the plates and it must be wet, like a slushy. But wait the 15 minutes and if some remains do the process over or just use it again and do the baking soda mixture until it is all gone. Be sure to brush on oil every time until the gummy coating is gone. After the coating is gone you really won't need oil unless you cook something with suger in it, like meat with a marinade.
I make waffles in bulk on the weekend and and toast them during the week. That 30 minutes saves me hours in the week. I undercook them a little then freeze in a zipper freezer bag. But you can make waffles with bacon, or sweet with cinnamon, or just put in your favorite muffin, cookie, or brownie recipe. I cook refrigerator cinnamon rolls with the waffle plates too. YUM! They cook in 2-3 minutes on the high setting. When you frost them, the frosting melts but STAYS in the waffle dents. Honestly they taste better that way. But panini's, grilled meat & fish, veggies, ALL cook perfectly in the grill and take much less time. I even cook cornbread in the waffle plates if I am running low on time before dinner. Freeze meat in individual portions so you can throw the frozen meat on the grill without thawing. I never thaw hamburger patties anymore. So a few minutes of prep can save you HOURS.
This is a great product and is easy to clean. I just place 2-3 paper towels soaked in water between the hot plates and let them steam for a minute before unplugging. It makes cleanup a breeze! I use coconut oil or butter brushed on the plates when I want the flavor but it really isn't needed to cook the food. GREAT product! This has SAVED me money that I could have spent on take out.

so esy to cook with and it offers so many ways to cook. As far as cleaning goes, the instruction books states not to use non-stick spray. I ignored that the first time and cleaning it was terrible. Now I cook without it and things work great - the food slides right off. The top plate requires a little more work. I use a scrub brush and it gets perfectly clean. I have had mine for at least 3 years now and will be buying one for a relative soon. I still have no problems.
