Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Serena Handy indoor grill for easy cooking
I owned a small George Foreman grill that I rarely used because it was so difficult to clean. When I saw this one with removable plates, I knew I had to buy it.
The plates easily lock in to place and are just as easy to remove. Once cool, the plates can be loaded into the dishwasher for easy cleaning. The back of the plates, where there is no non-stick coating, may discolor a bit, but that doesn't affect the grill at all.
The description says that the grill holds 3 or 4 servings, but I think they would have to be very small. I found that I could fit two servings on the grill.
Previous reviewers have mentioned that the grill doesn't get hot enough. I discovered that if you let it preheat about 20 minutes, it gets to the right temperature. If the meat doesn't sizzle when you put it on the grill, it's not hot enough yet.
So, if you're looking for a simple way to cook a healthy meal with minimal cleanup, this grill is for you.

I use this daily to cook dinner as well as lunch for the next day. I can cook up to 4 breasts (boneless, skinless) at a time and really helps with portion control and planning ahead for the next days meal. It cooks the chicken breasts in 5-7 minutes which is incredibly fast and leaves them very moist.
The best feature is the removable plates making this extremely easy to clean, and after hundreds of uses over a couple years the plates are still nonstick, it still heats up quickly however it is uneven as it's hotter on the bottom plate, but I just turn the food to make sure its even, not a big deal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrzjonez Love it! But...
Ive had this one for 10 yrs or more. Its a work horse and cooks foods from frozen to perfect in less time than using the stove or oven. Everything comes out evenly cooked. It does have a problem with the outter edges in the back and wherever the steam comes out turns a burnt brown. The plates have a prob with the teflon coating peels off at the contact bumps where top plate meets the bottom plate. I still love this thing tho. Was considering getting a newer one but wasnt happy with some reviews. I think I wil just stick to this one for now cuz I love it!

We purchased this about a month ago. We had one like this for almost 10 years and it started to smoke. We were extremely happy to be able to get another one so quickly. We just LOVE this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jpsuperman81 Amazing grille, love it so much!
I absolutely love this grill. I'm single and recently had to make a dramatic diet change, I went from eating out nearly every meal to making everything myself at home. This grill is a lifesaver. No more 20-25 minute chicken or fish in the oven. 5 minutes for chicken, it's juicy and delicious cooked to perfection. Even less time for fish. I've grilled steak and asparagus also and it all turned out great. Easy clean up I usually just wipe it down with paper towel but I have put the removable plates in dish washer twice and came out great. I may get a bigger one in the future. Buy a George foreman you will not be sorry!

This is our second GF Grill with detachable plates. This replacement cleans up easily, grills great so far and drains fat really well. Great for sausages, burgers, pork chops. Our only reservation is that it is made quite flimsy and the Teflon coating doesn't appear to be heavily applied. Our first GF was sturdy, solid, made a lot better, and lasted for over 7 years. We only replaced it because the Teflon coating was starting to wear off, making cleanup a chore. Not sure about this one lasting long, Otherwise we would have giving it 5 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colin The 5 Serving Removable Plate Grill is Hot Stuff!
I have used the two serving stationary plate grill for over a decade, and it has served me well. Cleaning it, though, was a chore. I bought a Griddler with removable plates, but found it cumbersome and difficult to keep clean. So I disposed of it and purchased the GF 5 Serve and kept the old GF 2 Serve, as well.
I have used t h e 5 Serve a number of times, and I am pleased with every aspect of it.
George Foreman Grills are champions in my book!
