Advantages: Great little machine.
My parents own a static caravan in perfect Pendine, and in that caravan she *had* one of these George Foreman grills, now I emphasise the *had* as she no longer has it, it is in fact sat in my kitchen!
When we go on holidays my hubby likes to make a full cooked breakfast every morning rather than just dishing out the cereal but as I am on my never ending diet I always used to thank him for my cooked breakfast with a glare!
We have had numerous George Foreman lean mean grilling machines, having first bought one of the ones with the coloured plastic lids and having others given to us when ours broke.
Anyway, I like cooking with these as you can actually see the fat that would have been in your food otherwise eww!
As my mum had one of these machines in the kitchen of the caravan my cooked breakfasts were quiet healthy, lean grilled bacon, one skinless sausage, mushrooms, beans and a slice of toast. The bacon and sausages go nicely into the George Foreman and I also add the mushrooms in there too, the fat runs down the channels into a grey plastic drip tray that you need to place underneath the machine.
You can cook so much stuff in these machines it really is great.
This one is silver in colour, the lid is a 'floating' lid which means that it suits a lot of different food items not just 'skinny' foods. You can cook a really thick burger and the floating lid means that the grilling plates will still be touching the food and not squashing it in any way.
It has a dial on the top to adjust the temperature.
This is a compact little machine, and I think it is a 3 portion version, I like it because space is quite limited in my kitchen what with the bottle sterilizer and other things and this takes up very little room indeed, if I am being fussy about things I will put it in the cupboard but as it gets used so often I do tend to leave it out. You can easily cook three slices of bacon/ probably a pack of thin sausages / 2 chicken breast fillets / on it. I have used it a lot for making the kids toasted sandwiches as this is much easier to clean than the toastie maker!
It look's modern and nice and in keeps with my black & white kitchen scheme so I am happy with it.
I am debating in getting a larger version (like my mum did!) to make it easier when cooking for all the family but for the time being I am very happy with this.
I can make a meal for myself and my hubby using it and we generally eat at different times to the children anyway so it isn't causing any problems yet!
This can be bought in Argos for about £30 or you can try and get one free off a family member.. as I did lol!
Summary: A great machine, just be careful not to knock the drip tray or you'll have a very messy worktop!
