I won my George Foreman GR0030P Grill at Work! I used to have a really small one years ago, but this one is huge and came with the grease catcher and prong cleaner as well as a Teflon coated Spatula & Tongs! I had a choice of prizes to choose from and as soon as I saw "the George" I pointed at it and said "That one"!! This grill is amazing and my Family loves when I cook with it! I marinated some pork chops one day and threw them on the grill and within 5 minutes they were cooked to perfection! Then I decided to make Hamburgers and they too came out perfect and cooked fast! Now I throw just about everything on the George! It is easy to clean and I always wait until fully cooled before closing the lid and putting it away. The Teflon coated grills are easy to clean off after cooking and I usually clean it right away so nothing sits or sticks for easier clean up.
Of course it is angled so the grease sides off into the grease catcher and the meal comes out healthier. I haven't tried cooking vegetables in it yet but will be next on the menu! as well as a grill cheese sandwich!! I would much rather cook meat on the foreman than our gas grill outside, so much more convenient to cook indoors! without all the smoke or burning the meat!

Ease of Cleaning
can be a pain unless you clean it right away, don't let it sit overnight with stuck on food!

Ease of Use
couldn't be easier to use!

Okay, first of all, we love our George Forman grill.  We got this as a wedding present and have used it so much, especially since we have no access to a grill because we live in an apartment. 

It is really easy and simple to use, especially since cooking is not my favorite activity, nor am I particuarly great at it anyway!  I literally close the lid and don't have to do anything else, other than power it on and place the grease tray underneath! 

The one con is a really, really big con in my opinion--it is soooo hard to clean.  I really hate to clean it, even to the point where I would rather not use it just so I don't have to clean it!  We only have one sink and it's not especially deep so it's really hard for us.  I plan to upgrade soon o one with a removeable tray. 

I would definitely recommend a George Foreman, but this particuarl model might be a little bit more trouble that it's worth.  My advice would be to for out a little extra money and upgrade for a nicer one!

Healthy option!

By 

from USA

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

Where to begin on why I highly recommend a George Foreman grill? I originally purchased my first George Foreman grill when I was single and living in my first home alone. This was perfect for me! This allowed me to eat healthy without wasting any food. Even after I got married I continued to have a loving relationship with my George Foreman grill. I eventually upgraded to a larger model. Another benefit of using this type of grill is saving on heating costs. The George Foreman grill is much more efficient than heating up and oven, or propane costs for a gas grill.

Performance
I have never had any issue with my grill's performance.

Ease of Cleaning
I do wish the cleaning options were a bit better. Due to the grill draining out the grease, it leaves a lot on the grill surface, which can sometimes be hard to clean.

Ease of Use
The grill is very elementary in use. It is not complicated in any way and nearly impossible to mess up!

Works Great! Quality not the same as an outdoor grill but good!

By 

from USA

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

This grill is very easy to use and convenient. We use it at least one to two times a week. The food doesn't compare to an outdoor grill. However, it does make really good food. We cook chicken on it often and have also done kebabs. Shrimp is great grilled on it as well as vegetables. I do not recommend grilling red meat as much because I haven't been as impressed with the taste of burgers and steaks we have done on it.

Performance
It works great. Grills food quickly. Our food is not always done in the time that it recommends. However, it always cooks the food well. The only thing that came out bad on it was a steak. It made it tough and lost some of the flavor.

Durability
Great! We use it at least one to two times a week and have had it for two years. No issues what so ever with it working well.

Ease of Cleaning
The give you a tool to scrape it after each use. Scrape it while it's still hot and that will make cleaning much easier. I wash the grill faces off with water and let them air dry. Some stuff you have to put some elbow grease into to get off but overall it's great.

Ease of Use
Plug it in, put the food on, let it cook. Super easy to use.

Works well, but I prefer to use other things

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

I normally enjoy using various types of smaller appliances, but I eventually got rid of my George Foreman indoor grill because I just never thought to use it--I could just as easily cook my meats and vegetables in a frying pan or (my favorite) in a grill pan that we put on our outdoor charcoal barbecue grill. The Foreman functions well, but the temperature on mine got a bit high, meaning the outside of thicker pieces of meat got overcooked before the middle was done.

Ease of Cleaning
Easily the Foreman Grill's biggest drawback is its difficulty to clean. The plates are non-removable, and while they are mostly non-stick, the greases or liquids from meats can burn/crust onto the plates. Since you can't wash the grill in the sink because of its electrical components, it can take quite a lot of scrubbing with a rag to get the grease off. The drippings tray is removable, however, and can be washed in the dishwasher.

ok indoor grill

By 

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

We received our George Forman Indoor Grill as a gift for Christmas a couple years back. We were quite excited about this as we had been wanting one. Overall it is an O.K. machine but it just has its limits. You cannot cook for a crowd on this. Usually it was used for quick weeknight dinners for a couple of us. It turned out to be a huge pain to clean so no one really ever wanted to drag it out because then they had the responsibility to clean it! It does cook food quite well and fast at that but I think I would just prefer to go outside and fire up my real grill and do it the old fashioned way. I know there are much better models now available that have removable plates and they are larger and clean so much easier, but we still have ours, it just really never is taken out of the cabinet. If you have the time for cleaning this thing than maybe it is for you. For us however it just proved to much trouble.

Simple and easy

By 

from Warren, MI

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

I don't know why I've been using this less lately. This is really simple to use as well as clean especially if you clean it immediately after use like I do. Of the several great features about this george foreman grill it grills evenly on both sides which means no flipping your food. It also runs to a grease trap which catches grease which is one of the reasons I prefer charcoal over gas or electric because the fat and grease runs off. The george foreman is also perfect for travel. I sometimes take it camping with me. Its faster than charcoal. Its also light weight and stores easily.

Performance
I like it. It cooks thoroughly and evenly and quick.

Durability
It seems solid enough ad considering the cooking surface is enclosed in the unit I'd say it was pretty darn durable

Ease of Cleaning
spray and wipe just as easy as that. It comes with a tool to help clean in the grooves.

Ease of Use
It doesn't get any easier than this.

Good Alternative to Outdoor Grilling

By 

from USA

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

Very good grill to use as an alternative to outdoor grilling. If you live somewhere that is affected by the winter season, and love to BBQ, this could be the product for you. This grill is pretty lightweight and doesn't take up too much space on the countertop, definitely smaller than your average outdoor grill. It comes with a scraper tool and grease trap which is a nice feature and you can easily run them through the dishwasher.

In terms of cooking this grill is excellent. You can cook vegetables, chicken, burgers, etc. You could cook up an variety of items. It also heats up fairly fast, I'd say 10 minutes or so, and you simply plug it in. It's not hard at all to use.

It comes in silver which is a nice addition to our black appliances. Fairly easy to wash if you do so right after cooking. If you let it sit a while, then it may take a bit longer to clean. Other than that no complaints.

Performance
Heats up quickly, cooks evenly.

Ease of Cleaning
Easier to clean right after cooking. Leave it around for a little bit and the cleaning could be a bit more difficult.

Ease of Use
Simply plug the grill in and place on your countertop.

Best indoor grill, EVER!

By 

from El Paso, TX

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

I absolutely LOVE this grill! I use it year round, even during the summer. It evenly cooks everything from chicken to burgers to steaks! And I love that all the grease is cooked off and the food isn't just soaking in it, like it would in a pan. It also cooks the food fast since both sides are being cooked at the same time. Probably one of the best purchases I've ever made!

It also comes with the fat trays which are helpful and easy to throw in the dishwasher after using.

Performance
Cooks food thoroughly

Durability
Very high quality.

Ease of Cleaning
Can easily scrub off in our sink and the trays can easily go through the dishwasher.

Easy as plugging it in.

George Foreman Indoor Grill GR30 grills great, but leaves a mess

By 

from Nampa, ID

Comments about George Foreman Indoor Grill:

Everyone loves a nice juicy burger from time to time, but you won't get that with this machine. As a benefit, the George Foreman Indoor Grill GR30, cooks your proteins while extracting all the juices and fat. I love that the indoor grill offers a healthy alternative to your fry pan burger, but it's the clean up that makes me dread using my unit. The grill is very user friendly. Just plug in to preheat and light indicator will shut off when the grill is ready. Cooking your meat is just as easy as throwing it on the grill and closing the lid for the indicated time. However, the grill plates are not removable and you are left scrubbing and rinsing your grill clean with much effort and a huge loss of paper towels or sponges. The grill does have a grease tray to catch all the extracted fat and that is fairly easy to clean, but the grill plates are a huge let down.
