Cooks fast, tasty food. Hard to clean.

I actually find it a pain the butt to clean despite what he says. When stuff burns on to the grill, it cakes on there and it requires some effort with that cheesy plastic fork that comes with the grill.

The one I have (cooks up to 4 burgers, forgot the model name) has no power switch either, you have to unplug it and see the sparks go off and hope you don't light your house on fire....

My wife and I don't use it anymore....I think our cat pissed on it too at one time....

Pro : Easy to cook when you live in a Dorm or an rented apartment with limited cooking options. Very easy to clean, if you do it right away. BTW, I have only cooked chicken in it.
Con: Chicken probably doesnt taste as good as it would otherwise when made in an oven.

Pro: VERY easy (even I can use it :)), very quick, can be used anytime anywhere.

Con: low fat meats can get a little dry, but the pros outweigh this effect imo.

I think the Foreman cooker rules! I dont know why everyone says it is hard to clean. Let me tell you how I clean mine, and perhaps you can give it a try. I cook my chicken on it, or sometimes fish. Instead of cleaning it up then, I close the lid after it is cooled and put it back on the counter (where I keep it-This is probably only good for bachelors.) ANyway, the next day when I go to use it again, I plug it in and let it heat up a bit. When it begins to get warm, I grab a paper towel and just wipe the stuff right off .It is soooooo easy! I could train a monkey to clean it for me in 30 seconds. GIve it a try guys.

I would give the Foreman an A+++

Its a pain in the ass to clean! If only the grill part was detachable so that you could put it in the dishwasher. Oh well.

To start the cleaning process, right after you cook, unplug it, then immediately get a sponge, get it real wet, and wring it out on the thing. Shut the lid real quick and most of the crap will remove itself. Now, after the water it has cooled off a little, so whipe it down with the sponge.

It's only hard to clean if you let the stuff dry on it. Heat the sucker up and you can rub it right off.

Certainly is easier to use, but I just use a stovetop grill.

Wouldn't that be just a pro? Should fat from meat not be avoided if possible? It gets rid of some, but not as much as George says it does. Anyway, animal fat is saturated!

Pros--fastest, easiest way to prepare chicken.

Con-cleaning it, although if you clean it while it's still hot, it's not too bad.

I think it tastes like it has been grilled, the only difference is you are missing the charcoal (a positive difference).

We know that. :) Just that fat makes the meat taste better, so getting rid of it so well on that GF grill causes a shift in taste. Avoid overcooking like the plague or then it really wont be very eatable.

Good point, I wasn't thinking from a taste perspective, just a healh one.
