4.0 out of 5 stars worth the buy, 9 Sep 2009
This review is from: George Foreman 14685 Family Removable Plates Grill - 4-Portion - Black (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you've used a George Foreman grill before you'll be very familiar with how it works. If you haven't, basically it is a grill that allows the fat from food to collect in a drip tray at the bottom making it a health choice.

The positive of this version is that it heats up quicker than older versions and the light is very clearly displayed. You can still use both spray oils or wipe it on with kitchen roll. I feel the spatula has a better design for lifting the food from the plates. The removable plates are the most obvious benefits of this product, but be warned they can go back on the wrong way round which means if you don't notice it the grease/fat will collect in a well around your food.

Unfortunately the cable isn't very long but I notice a lot of new products do this now; wonder if it is something to do with small children being able to reach them! The design of this one is much sleeker than the older one and I noticed that the bun warming facility is no longer there although I don't miss that as I never used it!

I've used it for cooking tuna steaks, sausages, bacon, chicken breasts and steaks. What I will say, is that I found it hard to fit 4 chicken breasts on the plates. My butchers ones stood no chance but I'd have expected to fit 4 supermarket ones on. But, as I'm just using it for two people that doesn't really matter too much to me.

I have the same complaint as most people, and the reason why it's only 4 stars. For some reason the fat drips between the tray and the bottom plate and it leaves fat on the worktop. That's easily wiped up however and doesn't stop me using it, as I prefer using my George Foreman to frying or the normal grill.
