Rated 4 out of 5Â by SopranoMFF Love the interchangeable plates, but...
I have really enjoyed using my George Foreman G5, and want to continue using it! However, the grill plates have gradually become NOT non-stick - we use them a lot - and there seems to be no way to replace individual plates without replacing the whole grill - which seems a waste. The grill plates are now very difficult to clean, requiring hours of soaking (even though we are using non-stick spray), and then still having charred bits stuck to them. I looked at the Evolve grill but the only plates available for purchase are the "unusual" ones - the grill/panini plates don't seem to be obtainable by themselves, so I would think I would run into the same problem with it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AllieKat I love this Grill
I originally bought my George Foreman for myself when I was out on my own. Due to the poor economy I was forced to move back in with my parents. My dad is a grilling maniac. He would stand outside in the snow trying to grill chicken and steak with his very large propane grill. Now that he found my George Foreman he never goes outside anymore. He uses it every day. He actually used it so much that I had to fight him to get it back when I moved out again. So I ended up buying him one for christmas this year. He loved it!!! He actually cried when I gave it to him. Like I said who doesn't love this grill.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by oceansrazor Best I ever had
"This is the best gift I have ever received from my best best friends. I was really touched to have received it because they all know I'm currently on a healthy diet now and this is a perfect design where oil and grease are dripped down from the meat.
Other than goign to gym, this cook pan certainly add a lot of values to my diet. We opened it and used it right after on our NYE party and everyone ate very happily!
The only thing is that the oil pan is a bit too small. A bigger one would make the cooking experience more convenient.
Overall, the rationale behind is perfect!"

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DudMc3 Use it several times weekly
Acquired it as a gift in June 2007. Almost four years later it is still performing well. Practically a replacement for the outdoor gas grill; we use it 1-3 times a week. The non-stick coating a while back wore out and I'm ready to purchase a replacement top plate. But soaking the plates in hot water for a bit followed by scrubbing with the special George Foreman grill sponge removes the residue with only moderate effort. The waffle maker plates make nice, big waffles everyone enjoys week after week; no additional waffle iron is in the kitchen cabinet any more. I had to open up the top half and remedy a loose electrical connection a year ago (that's out of warranty and my own risk of course), and some screws need tightening once a year. Well, well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by g5lover13 this is a great multi-purpose product
We really enjoy using the G5. Bought for husband 3 years ago and it is still performing great! This was an upgrade from the originl model, which was gard to clean & the surface coating shed, the G5 has removable plates that clean nicely and we've had no shedding. Our most utilized plates are the waffle and the flat plates, although we have used all 5 plates with no problems. The only thing to be careful about is the plastic lock mechanisms, they willl shatter easily, so use care in handling and during wash.
