Anyone owna George Foreman/ "Health Grill"?

Just picked one up today, haven't used it yet.

Does anyone here use one regularly? If so, do you really need oil/fat, or can you just whack in your chicken breast/steak as is?

I usually use olive oil mist spray when frying stuff, but noticed in instructions it says not to use anything other than "cooking oil" or butter, as it may burn and damage the non-stick surfaces. ?!?!

Any help appreciated - don't want to screw up my nice new toy on it's first outing

    I've owned two - they're ****.

    I have one of these now:

    Takes a little longer but the food tastes a lot better.

    Hmmmm. . . interesting! I'll have to see what other creative recipes I can come up with. And to think I was dubious about the recipe in the back of the booklet for cooking mince in it!

    If someone doesn't have a hob how are they able to eat at all!!??!

    You can always get table top electric hobs in a worse case scenario but I've never know a person not to have hobs in their kitchen.

    The quality is indeed lovely, it will outlive me.

    i use fry lite on mine as well, much easier to clean.

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.

    They are not that bad to clean as long as you actually leave them on and clean them like TT says and get the water and cleaning agent on there a.s.a.p.
