I purchased the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine GR10AWHT for my husband to help him to regain his waist line. You know how overeating at holiday time can be. Well, dear hubby took overeating to the nth degree!
Recommend this product?
What I initially liked about this particular model is the size and low price tag. I bought my little George for a mere $15.00, on sale at Rite Aid Drugstore! The regular selling price is nearly thirty bucks, so I believed that I was getting a great investment with this indoor grill for half the price.
Good Old George
It's no secret that George Foreman has made a huge fortune from his patented grilling machines over the past few years. More folks have lost weight and become much healthier due to the use of these machines that virtually removes every drop of fat from sirloin, pork and other foods prepared on them.
I thought that this product, highly recommended by George and so many users, would fit nicely into my family's healthy living regemin.
Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine
This grill has a clean attractive appearance. The off white enamel outer shell is smooth to the touch and remains cooler than I thought it would during the grilling process. The design is rather unique and awesome, with the machine tilted in a downward slant, aiding in the fats easy removal through the front of the grill.
The George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine has a three foot electrical cord that can be used in any 120V outlet.
Once the fish, chicken or burgers are put onto the easy to clean dual sided coated grill plates the process of fat elimination commences within seconds. Inside of the box there is a small hard plastic dish for fat collecting. It also comes with a specially designed hard plastic "spatula" with short fork like extensions that help remove the food from the machine as well as for flipping the food.

Setting up the baby George was quick and simple. I just plugged in to the nearest outlet on my countertop, set the fat collecting receptacle in front of the grill and was ready to go. The little orange indicator light immediately came on and the grill zoomed into "ready" mode.
I prepared burgers that had been ground with top sirloin beef. What struck me was how fast the burgers cooked! In less than three minutes I had hot, fat free burgers ready to eat. The fat from these burgers was minimal due to the quality of the ground sirloin, but I suspect that other types of meat and especially pork, would yield greater grease results.
The taste test is key for this consumer. First bite was, let's say, interesting. My mouth did not water! I was somewhat disappointed in the dryness of the meat. To be quite honest, I missed the fat!! My other family members actually loved the burgers without the extra grease.
Cleaning the grill was pretty easy. This is a plus. All I had to do was wipe the grill plates with a damp sponge. Not all of the burger residue came off cleanly, but with a tiny bit of effort, the Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine was ready to be neatly stored away.

Final Thoughts and Recommendations
Personally, I missed the added flavor that fat can give grilled foods. I suppose my constant comparison to outdoor grilled meats slanted my expectations from this little baby. To say that my taste buds were alarmed and disappointed with the dry quality of my burgers would be an understatement.
With that said, I will, however, recommend the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine GR10AWHT to those diet conscience consumers who are willing to eat foods grilled to perfection in a matter of moments. I'd recommend little George to those consumers who enjoy the taste of their fish, beef, chicken or steak without tasting the fat.
Foods prepared on this grill definitely are healthier without the added calories from fat and grease. But, I want my fat back!
Well, it's all a matter of taste.
