First of all, let me say I don't care about fat content. I eat a lot of meat, particularly fatty, juicy meat. I did not purchase this grill to remove fat from my diet (and suprisingly, not only am I extremely healthy, but I consider myself a health nut).
Recommend this product?
I purchased this grill because if I am not home, my husband will only eat peanut butter. I want him to eat good food while I am away and he has to fend for himself. I figured, "how hard would THIS be for him to operate?"
This grill actually has my husband cooking his own dinner. My only regret about this thing is that I didn't buy a bigger one; I've been using it cook for the both of us!
It does drain a good amount of fat from the meat, but since it sears both sides at once, the meat stays juicy and delicious. My husband can throw a slab of steak on there and within minutes, have a wonderful, healthy meal.
The meat cooks quickly and efficiently. No turning is required. Just stick it on there and close the lid. A little booklet comes with the grill to tell you how many minutes to cook. Very handy for my husband. He loves it.
I wish the cooking plates came off to wash, but it's no biggie. They are teflon, and if you scrape the residue off before it cools, it comes right off. I put the thing on the counter so it drains into the sink, scrub it gently with a plastic dish brush, then use the nozzle on it. Easy enough.
We plan to buy a larger one.
UPDATE: My sister bought one of these and gave it to our mom because she claimed it made the chicken she was cooking smell like a dead body. It does nothing of the sort. My sister was pregnant at the time, and sickened by the smell of cooking meat.
A couple weeks ago I opened my grill up and was hit in the face with the sickening stench of a dead body.
I am going to recommend that home pregnancy tests be removed from the the shelves and replaced with George Foreman Grills. Absolutely NO false positives!
