    Electric Grill

    Considering buying one of these, like one of the George Foreman types.
    Wondering if anyone else here has one, and if so, what's their opinion?
    Any favorite recipes?

    Had one. Used it. Pain to clean. Discarded it.

    It also didn't seem to heat up as much as I would have liked.

    I now use a cast iron griddle with grill lines.

    Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

    Our first George Foreman was (yes, past tense, donated to Goodwill) a pain to clean, however the newer ones have removable dishwasher safe cooking plates which we bought when we saw them come out. We do burgers, chops, and fish. Marinades do real well as well. Great for doing bacon on those Sunday morning breakfasts

    I have the George Foreman one on a stand. Works great, does a good job cooking what you want as well. But unlike a grill where you do not clean it until the next use when you turn it to 'high' for 20 minutes to self clean, not so with the electrics. They need to be cleaned after you are done unless you like things growing on your back porch that attract roaches, flies and all sorts of nasty things.

    We use our Foreman grill counter top thingee on a semi regular basis. AS SOON as you are done cooking whaterver it is you cook, take a wet rag and put it inside the hot grill. the steam will loosen up any baked on yuck. then all you have to do is wipe it all off.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    Still trying to figure out which one to get, if I do get it.
    I already have a heavy anodized aluminum grill pan from calphalon (I think) and it works, but its a real pain and because it cooks on one side only, I thought the electric grills might be faster.
    I'll keep researching.

    I'd recommend the Cuisinart Griddler. It's extremely versatile- you can grill, make panini, etc.

    BTW- electric isn't faster, especially if you're using your grill pan on a gas range. Nothing's faster than gas.

    Got a george foreman when I opened a bank account - have probably used it three times - in the winter. It's ok - actually did a nice cuban sammie on it last week. Nice for apartments though. But if you have a gas stove - a griddle you can set on the burners is the way to go.

    But I'm rather spoiled and have a little gas grill, but mostly prefer my charcoal grill - which I use year round - in fact I schmoked a nice piece of pork on it yesterday

    I bought a Foreman grill not too long ago. So far, I've made hamburgers, chicken, hot dogs, and these tortilla/chicken/salsa things. It's pretty nice for someone who doesn't know how to cook like me. Mine heats up plenty fast (I think the top burner is hotter than the bottom, gotta be careful not to burn stuff) and it's not too difficult to clean usually. If you can get one for cheap, I'd say go for it.
