The George Foreman The Next Grilleration Review
Hubby and I grilled meat, fish, and vegetables year round for years. Our old kitchen countertop was a grill/stove combination. When we remodeled, we upgraded to a range with all the bells and whistles sans a grill. I thought I would never miss it with the big BBQ grill on the back deck. Great idea in nice, warm, sunny weather…but what about in wind, rain, sleet, and snow? Silly me soon learned as both hubby and I avoid nasty elements.
Baking and broiling are alternatives but not full time November to March. No doubt about it, I had to figure out a solution as neither starvation nor takeout are acceptable full-time solutions. Idea!!!! Take the old electric grill stored in the RV for indoor grilling. ?Downside: ?A 38 sq. in. grill only works for portions for one at best. ? Hubby insisted we needed a bigger grill, and ?he was ?100% correct.
So I went out and bought a George Foreman. My first mistake was showing it to my middle son as we were readying to move him into his new apartment. One housewarming gift later, I still had a problem.
Out again I went to buy another. Purchase complete, I made my next mistake–showing it to my youngest son home on leave from the Navy. He needed something to use in his quarters. One caring package later, I still had a problem.
Undaunted I went and bought a third. You have heard that three times is the charm. Well, not for this little old lady. It was my first son and his wife’s anniversary, and, oops, I had forgotten. Time to save face, so I wrapped George with a card. I still had a problem.
Obviously, I am a slow learner. I see a pattern but luckily no more sons. New approach. My daughter has had a George Foreman for years so I hint how much I really like hers. Mother’s Day is long past and my birthday is October. Well, with summer here, I can wait a while longer.
Then hubby went out to get the mail. He came in laden down with a big box. Curious as I was expecting nothing, absolutely nothing, I asked him to open it. Voila, he pulled a George Foreman The Next Grilleration out. Great balls of fire, actually not; instead 120 watts of power!
Immediately I ?inspected this grill, read its instructions, then tested. The unit measures 7″ x 17″ X 14″ with a floating hinge to allow for thick crusts. Its easily cleaned 72 square inch grilling surface, which can fit three servings, consists of two removable scratch-resistant cooking plates. These plates are machine washable but can be easily cleaned with a sponge.
Time to try this appliance out with something to please the culinary palate–a mixed grill of steak, pork chop, and chicken.?My meal cooked in minutes.
As I am usually a Doubting Thomas, seeing is believing. The grill is energy efficient and cooks both sides ?searing in the juices. It’s much ?faster than conventional pan-frying.? It’s promise to knock out the fat delivers as its patented slope lets excess fat and grease drip away into a ?tray.
The Next Grilleration is versatile. Fresh and frozen meat, fish, vegetables, sandwiches and panini all grill well. Take George Foreman’s advice, “Knock out the fat.” It means healthier cooking. ?I am glad I finally have a George Foreman of my own.
The George Foreman The Next Grilleration is available online as well as many national retailers. Its retail is $59.99.
