In this page you can find a review of the GRP90WGR model. If you want to get the George Foreman GRP90WGR next grilleration electric nonstick grill with 5 removable plates, Click Here.
One of the more unique features of this design is that it has 5 removable cooking plates: 2 grill plates, 2 waffle plates and one baking plate. The unit also comes in an attractive red color, and includes a large stay-cool handle and a temperature control knob that allows you to cook on low, medium or high.
Unlike some other electric grills/griddles, there is no need to unplug this Foreman appliance in order to turn it off – you can simply use the control knob for this purpose.
Despite the fact that all the removable cooking plates of the GRP90WGR design are both nonstick and dishwasher safe, it may a good idea to avoid putting nonstick cookware in the dishwasher. This is because the dishwasher can cause the nonstick coating to wear off much faster. So, if you want to prolong the life of the product it would be better to wash it by hand.
Furthermore, it really isn’t that hard to clean the GRP90WGR model without using the dishwasher since the cooking plates are detachable. If you ever had one of the older Foreman grills with fixed plates, then you would know how hard it is to wipe clean a unit with cooking surface that cannot be removed. The removable plates make it a lot easier to clean this countertop grill; however you’ll still need to be careful not to damage the nonstick surface.
On the other hand, this appliance doesn’t cook as good or as fast as the older George Foreman grills. It takes some time for the unit to reach the proper temperatures and the heat isn’t always distributed as evenly as you may want, especially the waffle plates. Ironically, the best cooking plate is the one that doesn’t come with the GRP90WGR – the omelet plate.
The George Foreman omelet plates for the G5 grill make it very easy to cook tasty omelets in a short time. You can cook three omelets at one time with these extra plates, but you’ll have to be careful not to pour too much into the oval shaped depressions because there is a good chance that it will create a mess for you to clean up.
Moreover, it’s important to make sure that these are properly attached to the George Foreman GRP90WGR grill or you are taking a risk that they may fall at one time or another. And this is despite the fact that sometimes it can be a bit problematic to place the removable plates correctly.
If you want to cook a three or two course meal with this appliance using more than 2 cooking plates then you may have a problem doing so, because you’ll have to wait until these cool down before you can replace them with any of the other cooking plates.
Since the handle of the George Foreman G5 grill protrudes out and is relatively big even when compared to large electric grills, it can be a problem to use this unit if you happened to have a narrow countertop. In addition, it could also be troublesome to place the grease-catching drip tray underneath the unit if the counter is too small – and it’s not that hard to spill the hot grease even without a shortage of counter space.
Many people are still waiting for this popular company to recreate their good old Foreman grills that had fixed plates and was a bit hard to clean, but could reach very high temperatures and would literally last for years. Sometimes the old models are just straight out better than the new ones in lots of aspects.
However, some people might prefer to have a countertop grilling machine that is easy to clean and cooks fine than a unit that is a pain to clean and cooks great. While you may or may not like the GRP90WGR design one thing is certain: this is definitely an interesting product that makes a lot of buzz lately.
