When my George Foreman started to break down, I decided I liked the indoor tabletop grill idea, but needed REMOVABLE GRILL PLATES for cleaning.
Recommend this product?
GRILL PLATES: Non-stick and removable. They are very easy to remove with the touch of a button. Clean them in the sink with a bristle brush. That's it. Then dry them and pop them back in in seconds.
FLEXIBILITY: There is a hinge that will allow you to 'tip' the top horizontally so you can line up both grill plates, yes, horizontally, to press for a nice flat panini. This is also a nice feature if you have something really thick like a brat. Without this type of hinge one side of your food gets squished and the other side doesn't. You can still press the traditiona way if you choose to - kind of like you were putting your food in something like a book. You can also open the grill up flat. This gives you both sides to grill on top of. OK if you are feeding 1-2 people, because the space is quite limited on the Junior. But works well.
HEATING: Heats up instantly. Not much more to say, other than it has three settings, low, med., high.
DRAINING: Comes with cups to catch the draining fluids and grease off of one front corner. Just don't forget to place them under the edge. Any cup or small container will do.
SIZE: Somewhat small cooking space. Great if you have very little space to store or are cooking for one. I would have gotten the larger one if I had to do it again. I can make two small paninis at a time or one large one. Two burgers at at time; or 4 to 6 hot dogs at a time....
OVERALL: I wish my Foreman had failed sooner, I used it with resentment and dreaded the cleaning process. Now that I have the Griddler Jr. I use it all the time.
