How class are these, the ultimate lazy man's way of cooking, just put your meat or whatever on, leave it for 10 mins go back and its ready :p

'George Foreman Grills' - what an excellent name for a talk show! Get GF to interview politicians and some of these plastic pop stars - a sure-fire ratings winner!

Sorry to steal your topic Andy, ummmmmm, yes the grills are good! :oops:

The other idea for a TV show is 'George Foreman Grills' whereby the lardy ex-boxer is stuck on a skewer and rotated in front of an open fire.

Come on you TV execs. This one's a sure fire winner

;-)

The essential student kitchen appliance. I couldn't live without my "george", you can cook almost anything in it, although i have yet to succesfully manage a Fried Egg!! The combined higher heat and extra weight means a higher quality cheese toastie can be created than with a conventional toastie maker.

And the best bit? Thanks to Co-Op staff vouchers, mine cost me the princely sum of £3.50.

Bargain.

George is a revolution. I would be lost without mine. In our house we have 2 for ease of cooking and multiple meals.
George saved me from many a rough hangover during my 2nd year allowing for the cooking of sausage and bacon all at once to create the greatest sandwich.

Wasn't George Foreman the man who played the banjo? I thought he was just an entertainer, did he create the grille or was it just named after him?!

He was a boxer (was a world champion heavyweight in 1973-74 and again in the late 80s I think!). Most famous fight (I think!) was the 'rumble in the jungle' with Muhammad Ali in 1974 which Ali won.

I guess it was named after him, like the discussion on another thread regarding the Stylophone and Rolf Harris!

Didn't he write "When I'm grilling burgers", and "Grilling by a lamp-post at the corner of the street"?

As well as 'The Grill From Ipanema'.....

It certainly adds a different dimension to the genuine George Formby song "I like bananas - because they have no bones" :wink:

It's great for heating up the maggots for the fishing, just after you've taken them out of the fridge. The wife just loves me. :D

Personally I like the fat and grease... burger vans are my friends... however, maybe one day I'll try one of these crazy things... one day when I have money to burn, clearly...
