    Got one but never use it, it's a bitch to clean if you cook meat in it. I think the new one has a removable plate or some shit that goes in the dishwasher.

    Cleaning it sucks ass. It's easier to cook something on the stove top

    i have one, but i just cook shit in a pan on top of the stove. I think it's easier, and the foreman doesn't seem to get hot enough anyway.

    i have one of the older ones. i use it occasionally. i just wipe it with a wet paper towel while it's still hot after i cook something on it and the shit just comes right off :dunno: not that hard.

    cleaning it's easy as long as you do it RIGHT after you cook the meat. just take a cup of water and pour it onto the still hot surface, and all of the grime just runs off into the sink - assuming you have unplugged it and set it in the sink, that is.

    ftw.. exactly what 'nobody' said.. Cleaning is easy if you do it right. I don't have the removeable plates, but if you clean it while its still hot, cleans up within seconds. Plus Foreman came out with a special 'sponge' for cleaning it, which makes it even easier.

    I use mine daily. I've gone through 3 in the last 5 years or so.

    Cleaning it is easy as shit. You guys must suck at doing dishes. Just use hot water and a scrub brush. Takes me 15 seconds to clean and have ready for the next use.

    Hell yeah George Foreman is the shit. I just grilled up a shitload of chicken breasts and some salmon and tilapia filets for the weekend. It took me all of 20 seconds to clean it after i cooked all that meat on it.

    I have one, but I detest what it does to the meat. It flattens it too much, absolutely ruins steak. The only thing I do cook in it is hamburgers.

    anything you cook on it has to be thinly sliced. It cooks wayy to fast most of the time.

    however, it is nice for some occasions when you want something quick and easy.

    It's awesome, and the special sponges make cleaning a snap.

    I actually tried using it like a grill- just not putting the top down. Didn't work so well :mamoru: the ridges are too deep or something to cook right if the top isn't pressing the meat down.

    I have one and barely ever clean it. But they work good and they are easy to use.
