We have been using our George Foreman grills for years. We have them in 2 different sizes. The grills are great, because they cook the food quickly and the fat really drains off. Great for the winter months or even in the summer when it's raining and you can't get out to use the gas grill. I love them, but I hate to clean them more than anything. I think new versions or the more expensive ones have removable griddles, but ours are attached.
Here's the "before" of the little one after we cooked 2 burgers…ugh!
The speed of these grills still wins me over even when I have to clean them…but I do have a trick though!
Unplug your grill first, but when it's still a little hot place a few layers of wet paper towels across the griddle.
Close the cover and let it steam clean.
I leave it for a while when I cleaning up the rest of the kitchen and the dinner mess.
The last thing I do is wipe the mess off the grill…and it comes right off.
I've been doing this paper towel method for a while now, but in the beginning I would scrub it over the sink and rinse it off with the faucet sprayer. As you can see, I scrubbed a little too hard, because I scrapped off some of the Teflon coating. Still works great though.
When the two grills I have kick the bucket, my next purchase will be the one with the removable griddle. For now, it's hot paper towels for me!!
Hope this helps!
