*Whispers in secret
J: OMG, you are genius, let's do it. *evil grin ;)
You see, for this Christmas party with friends, instead of the normal secret Santa, we opt for a White Elephant gift exchange (read the rules here). Basically it's a game where you are allowed to steal other people's gift, but each gift can only be stolen for 3 times, before it's off the 'market'. Of course with 2 people in the game, it's much easier to strategize, so I am happy to report we did manage to score this George Foreman grill.
The value of gift was set at $30, so I am assuming this very basic model costed less than that. This model came with the basic grill and a drip tray.
There were no On/Off button, it was just plug and go. There is a light indicator at the top that will tell you when the grill is good to go. The plates are not movable, but it does come with non-stick coating for easy clean up. The patented sloped design really helped to drain any excess juice and fat into the portable drip tray.
What we liked:
- fast cooking/grilling with no oil required
- non-stick for easy clean up
- does not take up too much room (we have the smallest version)
What we didn't like:
- limitation on the height of food allowed on the grill (to ensure even heating)
- unable to control temperature
Overall, R and I really like our mini George Foreman grill, it's the perfect size for us. However if you are cooking for more than 2 people, I would suggest getting the next size up.
