Ever since I got my very first Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine when I was eighteen, I have sung the praises of George Foreman grills to anyone willing to listen. These, to me, are one of the best inventions to ever grace the kitchen. There is simply nothing better to buy for your kitchen if you're in college or on a low budget. There were years when I used nothing but this and my coffee pot in the kitchen. Mr. Foreman obviously has a great understanding of who his customer base is, because the prices are amazingly affordable, even on a shoe string budget. And for all the money you save making your own food, it is well worth every penny. My favorite things to make on my Foreman are grilled avocado-stuffed burritos, Tilapia, hot dogs, ham and cheese melts, and chicken quesadillas. No matter what you make, a Foreman will make it quick, easy, and always evenly cooked. There is no down side to a Foreman grill, unless you have a huge family and bought the personal sized one. Everyone should have one of these in their kitchen, truly. Performance Foreman grills always heat evenly, and cook your food perfectly. Durability Never have I had a Foreman grill break on me. I have only had to buy new ones when mine was in another city. And that never bothers me, as I'm totally okay giving my patronage and money to such a great brand. Ease of Cleaning Perfect for lazy college students who hate washing pots and pans, like me! Ease of Use Anyone can use this, and look like a pro!
