Good grill for low fat cooking, with removable plates
on 15 March 2018
This is my third Foreman grill.
My first one didn't have removable plates, and was therefore difficult to keep clean.
My second one had removable plates, but the anti stick surface got damaged after several years, and it was surprisingly not possible to procure those as parts.
This one has removable plates too, but I haven't checked if they can be bought separately (for a reasonable price, less than a full appliance).
The nice feature of the Foreman grills is that the slope allows for a lot of fat to be drained from the food during cooking.
The key trick to keep the grill clean is to clean the plates with a wet sponge while they are still hot, and this can be done without removing the plates.
While the plates have anti stick coating applied, a little bit of oil is still required to be applied before cooking.
The appliance itself is fairly large, so do check the space available in your kitchen. It can be stored vertically, with plastic clips on both side keeping the grill closed. In reality, this may not be that practical.
The metal top arrived slightly scratched, and was not protected by a plastic layer, so that's a bit annoying.
The grill doesn't have a temperature setting as such, it will just automatically heat up and cool down repeatedly.
The display on the top is only a timer to stop cooking automatically, but I am not sure if it's really needed, as I don't cook the same food in the same quantity many times, and therefore wouldn't know how long to cook for each time.
