What Mumsnetters say about George Foreman Grill

We asked Mumsnetters to post their feedback on George Foreman Grills in this thread, and here's what some of them said. 

  • I just got my grill, and I'm aready using it every day. I've been eyeing up the GF recipe book, and starting to think about life pre-George and how I used to cook. Johnworf
  • I love to make toasted sandwiches with skinless sausages and cheese. Add the ketchup for the finishing touch. Also jalepeno wraps with cheese and toasted in the George Foreman is just perfect and very addcitive. The pack is finished before you know it. FizzySmiles
  • I'm loving how easy it is to clean - as soon as I take the food off, I just get a really wet sponge and wipe it down. If I've been cooking something really sticky, I might need to wet the sponge two or three times (because the heat dries it) but it never takes more than a couple of minutes. We have invented "fish wobbles", which are essentially fish fingers, but cut inexpertly. My 6yo and 3yo DDs love helping, and it means they are eating actual proper fresh fish, not to mention handling it and trying different types of fish to compare.BrittaPie
  • I thought it'd just be things like sausages or chops that you did on there, but there's so much variety! Steffanoid
  • I was impressed. The food was tasty - lots of favourites, inside out burgers, chicken fingers - things I'd make but would take longer. It is great for getting the kids to cook on. Ohforfoxsake
  • The best feature was the independent heat between grill and griddle. It's very simple.TheOneWithTheHair (Tester)
  • I learnt that it's not just for chops and bacon, and that pretty much anything can be cooked on a George! LackaDAISYcal
  • My kids love pizza sandwiches - basically a toasted sandwich with a bit of ketchup, mozzerella cheese, chorizio and basil leaves. OK, I'll admit it - I love them too! angell74
  • The George Foreman is a ultra-quick way of cooking fresh fish. MNPin2013
  • I'm not a tester but wish I was after reading all the things you can cook. As well as the steaks, chicken breasts, enchiladas, halloumi etc, that I could do on a griddle, I'd also be able to fry ups, fish, kebabs, grilled veg, hamburgers, soy and ginger marinaded pork loins paninnis, bruschetta, hot wraps...I need one now that I think about it. Droflove
