4.0 out of 5 stars
Heavyweight knockout!!, 8 July 2003
ROUND 1 This grill is the business. It gives good results cooking burgers, chops, fish and all that sort of thing. But George comes into his owm and really packs a punch when he cooks you up a good ciabatta panini (mozzarella, chicken, salami, tabasco, mayonnaise, mmmm!) ROUND 1 to GEORGE
ROUND 2 To say that George will change your life is perhaps a little extreme, but I used it pretty much every day for the first couple of months after purchase, and I can definitely recommend its ease of use and versatility. George knocks down any rival, cooking everything from calzone to caramelised bananas. ROUND 2 safely in the bag.
ROUND 3 Despite all this, I can only give it 4*. This is because its tilted cooking surface, which aims to remove the fat, does in fact do little more than dispose of the beautiful juices from your steak or the marinade from whatever you are cooking, when you really want these flavours to remain with the meat. Furthermore, the non-stick surface means that you don't really get the same sort of defined grill lines as you would on a normal grill or barbecue. Ouch!
GEORGE FOREMAN wins the fight two rounds to one, and is crowned heavywight champion of the kitchen.
