George Foreman Next Grilleration Review



With a 72 square inch cooking area, the GRP4 Next Grilleration contact grill features nonstick removable dishwasher-safe plates with embedded heating elements; users praise the quick and easy clean-up, speedy cooking, and floating hinges that accommodate thick food items but grumble about a short electric cord and a drip tray that doesn't attach to the unit.

Removable and dishwasher-safe grill plates make the George Foreman Next Grilleration GRP4 (starting at $50, Amazon) a step up from earlier models. George Foreman grills reviews by users give higher marks from consumers for convenience and easy clean up than for results. Still, the brand attracts a loyal following. A review on Consumer Guide is more positive, and gives this contact (two-sided) grill a thumbs up for performance.

Several features of the George Foreman Next Grilleration appeal to users. The slight slope of the grill ensures that grease and fat drain away, and the unit comes with a special sponge and spatula for cleaning. The grilling plates are joined by floating hinges that adjust to the thickness of whatever you're cooking, and with 72 square inches of grilling surface (the unit measures 15x13x7), you can fit four burgers or two steaks. On the other hand, George Foreman Next Grilleration reviews note that the drip pan isn't attached to the unit and can get jostled during cooking. Also, there are no temperature controls and some users complain that the grill plates don't generate enough heat.

Where to buy

Overall, though, the George Foreman Next Grilleration is a good, user-friendly buy. And like most inexpensive indoor electric grills, it comes with a one-year limited warranty.
