I'm going to upgrade my George Foreman grill. The one I have now is one of the little ones that has been a gem, we use it 3 or 4 times a week. I would like a larger one as I've started grilling a lot of my veggies as well as meat. Any suggestions or recommendations for me?

Thanks :)

Avoid the Foreman grill with removable grills.  I bought this thinking it would be easier to clean, and it's definitely that, but it doesn't get as hot as the one I replaced. :(

Well dang! The removable grill plates was a feature that I was looking forward to, seems like it would make an even easier clean up, more thorough if nothing else.I'm grateful for the informatin though, that's why I asked :)

Thanks Evan!

I have to agree about the removeable grills.   I LOVE being able to pop those suckers in the dishwasher but the grill simply do not get as hot as my older one.  Wish I had hung on to my old one until I figured this out!

I have the large removable grill George and I like it! If it isn't as hot as I want, I just up the temperature from like 350 to 375 etc..  I was surprized to read that you don't like them because I like mine lots better because with my old 1, it always wanted to burn my food. Boneless chicken breasts get much better on the removable plate grill. And washing is 10 times easier! I would get another 1 of these in a heartbeat.

I have the one with removable plates.  I really like it.  The only thing about mine is I think the lid is a little wobbly.

 This is all interesting.  I've been thinking about getting one; my mom has the kind that you can't remove the grill part, and cleaning it always seems more trouble than it was worth.....

  It seems like you just cannot duplicate the flavor of grilling over wood-----but also: I live in South Florida, even though grilling is all the food mags write about this time of year, NOBODY cooks out here now, becuase it's just too dang hot ! plus afternoon thunderstorms.....
