    Pros: Cook meats, waffles, pancakes and more; removable plates for cleaning.
    Cons: No timer.

    Summary: Over the years we have had a number of George Foreman grills, all of which we used a few times a week, until they were worn out. A few months ago, the Foreman grill that we were using began taking longer and longer to heat up, and did not seem to get as ... read more

    Cons: bland taste, no customer care, teflon falls off, meat comes out dry, can be messy.

    Summary: In todays corporate world where it seems that the large corporations care about everything but the consumer - I wanted in this review to focus more on the corporation making this griller rather than the griller itself which is mediocre and gets a lot of ... read more

    Pros: Heats fast, versatile.
    Cons: Cord too short, extra plates take up too much space.

    Summary: A few years back I had a roommate who owned one of the small George Foreman Grills. I'm not one for extra appliances and so I wasn't too impressed by something else to put on the counter. Well my opinion began to change when I saw how quick it cooked, ... read more

    Pros: ease of clean up, cooking quality, numerous cooking options
    Cons: no timer

    Summary: I purchased this grill on sale for $65.00. Prior to purchase, I was using a single burger size Foreman. I didn’t use it that much because it took so long to make a meal because by the time even the second burger was done, the first one was cold. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Food is juicy and cooks well
    Cons: Cleanup!

    Summary: This is not going to be a thorough review. I see no reason to repeat the features, instructions, etc., in each review. Do a bit of reading and you'll get all the info you need. My impressions of the G5... I have had this grill for about 18 months. ... read more

  • Yes. The George Foreman G5 is Worth Every Cent.

    Jan 19, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: grill plates lift out for easy cleaning, versatile, low fat cooking when tilted
    Cons: a little messy - use Pam spray - wipe with paper towel before washing

    Summary: The George Foreman G5 is definitely a step up from the old George Foreman grills. Though I really like my small Foreman with a bun warmer, the new George Foreman with lift out grill plates is a huge step up. When I got my mini George Foreman grill, Ií ... read more

  • Top Grilling Plate Impossible To Clean

    Sep 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great waffle maker and baking works well.
    Cons: The simulated cross-hatch pattern on the top grilling plate makes it impossible to clean.

    Summary: I have been a fan of the George Foreman Grill and have used several models over the years. My excitement ended after purchasing the G5. The removable plates sounded like a great idea at first. Whoever designed the top grilling plate really missed the ... read more

    Pros: 3 appliances in 1. Super easy to clean.
    Cons: None so far.

    Summary: When I saw a commercial for this I thought it was pretty cool. So, when my mom asked what my husband wanted for Christmas I told her this grill. We went shopping for it and found it on sale for $119. The sticker said retail was $159. It was a little ... read more

    Pros: Price (at BJs), Features, Durability, Brand Name, Easy Clean-Up
    Cons: None, this product is wonderful!

    Summary: This grill is wonderful! I researched and found that the best price was at my local BJ's wholesale club. It was $95 plus tax. I've had a "regular" George Foreman grill for almost 8 years. It was time for a new one, as the old was showing wear. I ... read more

    Pros: 5 interchangable surface.
    Cons: Does more steaming than grilling

    Summary: After reading great reviews about the George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill, I thought I might try it myself. It's been a month and it has been nothing but a disappointment. The G5 have 5 non-stick interchangeable plates. These grilling surfaces are 84 sq. ... read more

    Pros: Removable plates. Easy to clean. Well worth the expense.
    Cons: Odd shape - has its own special place on my countertop

    Summary: Recently acquired the G5 from Amazon (since believe it or not every store local to me was sold out from the holiday season, with no "restock" date). Meal one - grilled ham and cheese sandwiches - very tasty Meal two - reheated premade frozen ... read more

    Pros: Adj. temp., multiple plates (removable), stable, cool touch handle
    Cons: Weight distribution of top (favors front)

    Summary: I got one of the little Foreman Grill knockoffs a few years ago and thought it was ok, but a PITA to clean. So I was waiting for the removable plate version... which did indeed come out. But then I still waited and finally noticed this one with multiple ... read more

    Pros: Cooks just about everything just right, especially pork chops
    Cons: May be too small for special occasions.

    Summary: Although our second George Foreman grill cost 30% more than our original, the benefits over the old model are well worth the difference. You can read my clever review of our last grilleration titled, "You Bought a What?" under Salton Large Family ... read more

    Pros: Easy to clean. Easy to use. Even toasting/browning.
    Cons: Kind of big *but* it does the job of 3 different appliances!

    Summary: This grill is amazing. The first thing I made for my husband and I was ciabatta sandwiches. First I marinated chicken and then grilled it. Then I used fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato and put the chicken on the ciabatta roll. Put them both in the grill on ... read more

    Pros: Very easy to use and clean.
    Cons: Borderline ugly, and quite bulky.

    Summary: I bought the new George Foreman G5 grill because I wanted - but had no space to store - a contact grill and a waffle iron. First impressions? Don't expect to save a lot of space! The G5 is not tiny (14x13x7"). Strangely, it also looks very different ... read more

    Cons: Cord is way too short

    Summary: This is my second George Foreman grill.  The first one lasted us 9 years and the taflon was starting to come off, but still worked.  It was also a pain to clean since the plates would not come out.   The G5 is so much better.  ... read more
