The George Foreman Easy Clean grill is the ideal product for the small family. It will cook up to 4 portions of food in a healthy way by filtering away the fat and grease in a separate drip tray. To ensure that the product is really easy to clean, the grill plates are removable as well as dishwasher safe. Like all George Foreman grills, the product has a floating hinge meaning it will adjust to cook even the thickest food.

I was really sceptical at first about these new removable plates as I have never found my George, cause thats what I call my grill, overly hard to clean but these removable plates are a wonder. After cooking dinner for my family all I have to do is whip the plates off the grill and then put them straight into my dishwasher.
Having 'killed' our previous George, the task of finding a replacement was daunting as there are so many variations on a George!! This one falls into the 'Ronseal' category - it does what it says on the tin!! Just make sure that the grillplates are clipped in. The facility to wash the grill plates is priceless. Buy one now - you won't be disappointed.
I have used this fairly regularly since I bought it. I never normally had to remove the plates to clean them as they are easily wiped with a sponge. I have still had to remove the plates regularly as somehow the grease gets underneath them (I have no idea how it gets under the top plate). I think this is one of the reasons it died. As other people have mentioned, when new the plates are a fairly tight fit but after a while they get looser (the top one especially). This means that it seems to cook the lower part more than the top. It's not much of a problem as it still cooks well.
Well what happened after many uses is that I left it heating up (no more than 5 minutes) and then I heard some strange noises from the unit. I then saw a flash and it was obvious something had caught fire between the plates (probably a bit of oil). I approached it carefully as there was obviously a fire between the top plate. I switched it off and cleaned any oil I could find. Unfortunately it no longer works!
I will claim under the warranty and hope it doesn't happen again. I am still not sure why it happened as it should not get hot enough to cause a fire. I must have used it at least 40 times in the 4 months I had it.
