If I had a family, I'd want the larger ones, but, again, for one or two people, this may be all you need.
Clean up is very easy, as this one has detachable grill plates, as well.
I am listing some of the maximum sizes of foods that I have found that will cook evenly on the grill and will brown perfectly every time using a preheating time of 10 minutes. These are just suggestions so you don't go to the grocery store with a ruler in your hands. (lol)
1.) One, Five and one half inch by Eight and one half inch T-Bone Steak with the bone in arranged side by side or horizontally on the grill.
2.) Two, Five and one half inch by Four inch Rib eye, Top Sirloin, Chopped Sirloin, or other kinds steaks arranged side by side lengthwise from the top to the bottom on the grill surface.
3.) Two, Four and one half inch, one half pound (or larger) hamburgers arranged side by side on the grill. (beef, lamb, turkey or other meats.)
4.) Three, Three one quarter pound (or larger), hamburger patties arranged in two rows with two on the top and one on the bottom of the grill surface.
5.) Four, Four and one half inch, one quarter pound hamburger (Krystal size. lol) patties or sausage patties arranged in two rows on the grill surface.
6.) Two, Five and one half inch by Four inch boneless chicken breasts or pork chops. Chicken breasts with the bone in should be baked or poached first before putting them on the grill for final cooking to add grill marks and color and make sure that they are cooked all the way through.
7.) Three slices of thick cut bacon arranged in rows from the top to the bottom of the grill horizontally. Seven minutes cooking time for restaurant quality taste and doneness.
*I am leaving out any measurements for fish and other seafood's, and vegetables because there are too many variations in sizes to try and list. But I think that the measurements I have listed above should give you a good idea of the sizes of foods that you can cook on the grill. I also left cooking times out except for the bacon, because the thickness of the foods determines the time that they need to cook to your preference. Have fun...experiment!
Here's the "MORE" from the review title:
-The instruction book says clearly not to over crowd the grill. If you over crowd the grill the food will NOT brown. The moisture on the meat itself will be trapped under the meat will turn into steam which "poaches" the meat instead of browning it. Also if you do not make sure that all sides of the meat are dry, it will not brown either. These are two things that Julia Child went on and on about in her cookbooks and TV programs. So get out the paper towels and dry the meat before cooking it. You can still marinate the meat if you want to, but dry it before putting it on the grill. The flavor will already be soaked up into the pours of the meat so drying it won't change the taste after you cook it. This works every time.
-The instruction book also says that you can wash your grill plates in the dishwasher. I would never do this because top quality "high dollar" companies like Calphalon, All Clad, and others clearly state in their "use and care" manuals that all their non-stick surfaces should be washed by hand and not in the dishwasher because the harsh chemicals in these soaps will damage the non-stick surfaces. I have found this to be 100% true in the past after I ruined several pieces over a short time in the dishwasher and they stuck like glue when I tried to use them from then on. I would love to be able to tell you want scientists say about cooking sprays like PAM do to your non-stick surfaces but I don't want to get sued! Have you ever noticed that amber build-up that you can't scrub off and the pan starts to stick more and more? Ok, enough said. If I need it, I use cooking oil or butter.
-Now to the issue of the cord length that seems to bother so many reviewers. UL STANDARDS in the United States determines the safety of an appliance against fire hazards based on the Watts it uses in order to determine the length of the cord it can have. The manufacturer has nothing to do with choosing a cord length for an appliance in this country. This grill is rated at 1150 Watts and has a 25" cord. I looked at a small single serving George Foreman grill at Wal-Mart and it was rated at 650 Watts so it could have a longer 30" cord. I hope this clears that problem up.
I hope this review has been helpful to some of you and that if you end up purchasing one, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have ever since I bought it. I feel that it has been the best $30 purchase that I have made in ages!
I can put 3 quarter pound hamburger patties, or 2 third pound patties on it, FROZEN and in 12 minutes they are cooked fully well done all the way thru, and seared on the outside just fine. All you have to do is wait for the ready light to come on. These burgers are about or over 3/4 of an inch thick, so it should work fine with chops or steaks too as long as they are not very thick.
The clean up is really simple. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. I cannot imagine the mess of cleaning the version with the permanently attached plates.
This grill works fine, it might take longer than the older version, but the convenience of the removable plate clean up is well worth it. If you live alone, or have a small family, this grill is well worth it.
Like many others mine spewed a caustic smoke after plugging it in for it's first preheat. It was coming from the hinge area and not the plates, can't quite identify what was burning but it was nasty smoke and hung in the kitchen for a while. This is really alarming and makes you get the fire extinguisher ready. It only did it the first time. So put it outside on initial startup.
Pressing on I put a frozen 80/20 1/4lb burger on (after the 'green' light came on) for 6min. It became a 1/4" thick completely dry hockey puck (but with wonderful grill marks) that even my cat and a raccoon walked away from. It has a thermostat because you can hear it click, it desperately needs some kind of temperature control or a much lighter top. It just crushed a usually juicy frozen patty into leather. It also needs a longer power cord and a larger drip tray. One 1/4lb 80/20 burger filled the tray to 50%, 3 would have overflowed the tray and 2 would have filled it to the brim.
The initial deal-breaker was less the alarming amount of caustic smoke during the first preheat but rather how heavy the top is and how dry the resulting hockey puck which used to be a burger. But now I've fixed it with a couple of feet of aluminum foil.
I initiated the return procedure, but because of how fast it's ready and how fast it cooks and the wonderful grill marks I reconsidered...
I did not return it though Amazon sent the requisite label and I am now giving it 4 stars since it works now as I'd hoped with modifications. I must admit the grill marks achieved indoors without the need of an exhaust fan to the outdoors and the lack of spatter all over the place convinced me to keep it, that, and that this was only 30 bucks.
The caustic smoke was only seen on the first preheat, so put the unit outside for that first preheat, and they really should have said that in the instructions. The back of the aluminum plates turning black is a natural thing as aluminum oxide is black and the plates are unprotected on the back side from the heating elements. Of course you aren't eating that oxide, it's on the opposite side of where the food goes.
So, HOW TO FIX IT: Take about 24-30" of aluminum foil and roll it up tightly, it should be a 12" long log 5/8" to 3/4" in diameter. Put that log behind the vertical edges of the plates at the back so it will push the rear hinge upwards on closing the lid. This will allow you to decide how much pressure the top exerts on the food depending on how close to the back you put it. If need be, you can also prop the front up using something under the handle, I haven't needed to do that yet but I'm only making 2 1/4lb 80/20 frozen burgers and now they aren't hockey pucks but juicy and with wonderful grill marks.
I should also note that George talks about "knocking out the fat" in the commercials. Therefore, I should have suspected this thing would want to squeeze all the fat and moisture out of everything it encounters. I'm sure some like that feature. I do not. The fat is the flavor and moisture is imperative. So try the rolled up foil trick and remember you can also prop up the front via the handle to let the plates just touch the food.
Another suggestion, as in the second picture, use a half or whole cookie sheet instead of the drip tray. See the pictures and notice that from the side view you can see there is a range of places ranging from all the way at the back to all the way at the front to put the food.
Also, when grilling hot dogs or other cylindrical sausages and placing them horizontally, prop up the front feet by 3/4" and the fat will still drain but they won't try to roll off down the front when you open the grill. I use 2 empty Altoids tins under the front feet. This raising of the front feet also has the effect of the top not exerting as much pressure on the food, assuming you use my "fix" of putting the foil log at the back.
Other than the smoke on first preheat, I'm happy with this indoor grill.
