    They are ok. Eventually, I grew up and learned how to grill or bake chicken. For amateurs like yourself, I say buy it.

    If you do, don't be a Heeb and get the cheap one. Grab the top-of-the-line model with removable trays and all that shit.

    I thought they were about $50? I used to have one and it was great but it's one of those things you will use a lot at first and then it will gather dust. Cooks fish great though.

    Looks like at least $150. The one I had came with the two standard plates, two flat ones, and then two waffle plates. I think it also had a bunch of tools and a couple of drip trays, too. It was a versatile motherfucker. I ended up loaning it to a coworker who moved out on her boyfriend and didn't have shit for cookware.

    And of course, the cunt never returned it. :mad:

    Its a waste..The food doesn't taste grilled.... And, by the time its all said & done, cleanup is just as much of a pain in the ass as any other regular pan ...... An outdoor Barbecue is still the best bet

    I sold my giant George Foreman grill at a Yard sale 4 months after I bought it

    I aint cooking no fucking fish on it

    My old roommate cooked fish on one in the middle of the night and burnt it and set off the smoke alarms and I woke up to high pitched shrieking and the smell of fish

    George Foreman made more money selling his grill then he made in his entire boxing career. :grad:
