Do you have a george forman grill? Do you use it? what do you think of it? I am using the george forman grill for the first time tonight! lol We have had it for years..my cousin gave it to us but we had never used it because we always grill outside but the weather is too bad to grill (i'm in south florida with hurricane fay) my mom wanted to fry them but i was like "yuck" and said I was cooking mine in the george forman grill! and then everyone else wanted theres in cooked in it too. lol They smell good and it cooks them fast. i tasted one of the ones thats already done and its goooood! and it doesn't have all that extra grease and fat in them.

I use a grill but it's not a George Forman, very similar though, and we love it! I won't fry anything anymore...and it's so much healthier too!

I used to have a George Formen grill it was given to me but I didn't like it. It would make your meat taste really dry all the juice runs out and you don't have juicy steaks anmore. I would much rather use my Traeger grill.

The one I have isn't a Branded "George" grill,it would be of similar design,but just a smaller sized one that'll just fit a couple of burgers in it..I find that as well as being perfect for bacon,burgers,and other grillables,they can make great toasted sandwiches too!

I bought one and really loved it but the boys used it, too, when we all lived out there together. They'd do burgers in it and the grease everywhere was AWFUL!! And they rarely cleaned up after themselves. So when I moved here to Ohio, I left it behind because one of my sons and his friend was coming with me. Now they've moved back to Arizona, I can get one again. Maybe I'll buy myself one for Christmas!

I don't but my mom does & she loves it... She used to bring food to me & my girl friend when we first moved in together & she never failed to mention that she cooked some of them in that grill... She's trying to talk my girl friend into buying one... I don't think it's a bad idea... They always talk on the phone & swaps cooking tips, lol... Must be a girl thing... I think I'm gonna get my girl friend one for this Christmas...

I use a George foreman grill and I love it. I just have a smaller one and that's perfect for me. I love the way the meat cooks on the outside but is still tender on the inside! I don't use a frying pan anymore either!

I love my george foreman grill. In the last house I lived in the kitchen was extremely small and the stove was small and not up to my standards so i used the forman grill every day. It has also been good for all the diets i've been on. It's almost as good as the real grill, but with much less cleanup.

I used to have two of them, a little one and a mondo one that we used when it was cruddy outside. I used to live in South Florida, Delray Beach and Pompano Beach, I wish you the best with Fay. We sold our George Forman grills, I wish we would have kept them, I could grill my head for selling them, they are great though. We've cooked everything in them, hamburgers, chicken, bacon is a little tough to do but it works. Hot dogs are fun too. It will turn you into a short order cook so watch out when people see you with it.

I love the Foreman grill I have used up two of them since I had discovered them. They cook the food so fast and when you see everything drip away, it's rather disgusting and find yourself glad that isn't going into your body.
