When I'm in the mood for a good grilled hamburger, nothing works like my GF grill, I love it. They're juicy. I've been meaning to try it for grilled cheese, I keep forgetting.

Also, there's a really good documentary on George Foreman on Hulu.com, on a show called 'Titans'...he is such a nice guy and an amazing salesman and philanthropist. I really like how close he is to his family, he credits his wife with much of his business success, and his kids are great. Good man.

Mine works fine. My veggie burgers and grilled polenta and my daughter's burgers and chicken breasts all come out great. Foods don't tastes as good as they would from an outdoor grill but they are much better than fried or microwaved. We use ours lots.

NEVER HAD TROUBLE, AND WE HAVE HAD A FEW AS WE KEPT GETTING BIGGER ONES. MAYBE YOU ARE USING TOO THICK OF A CUT OF MEAT? I ALSO USE THAWED MEATS AND A THERMOMETER TO CHECK FOR WHEN IT IS DONE, BECAUSE I TEND TO OVER COOK. I WONDER IF YOU SHOULD CALL THE NUMBER FOR THEM AND ASK WHAT IS GOING ON...IT IS SUCH A GREAT WAY TO COOK!
GOOD LUCK!

I use mine at least once a week for grilling meats, also for grilled cheese and garlic bread and never have any problems with burning or undercooking. I do try to have the meat at least partly thawed, unless it is just a burger patty.

I don't use mine as much as I did when I first got it. But I still love it. I have the G5 that has 5 removable plates.

I'm much happier with my cast iron grill pan, because I control the heat and I find I get a better sear on the meat. With a grill pan it doesn't matter how thick the meat is because I can just pop it in the oven to finish, like restaurants do (although I've only had to do that once). I have a gas stove, so it's a very energy efficient way of cooking.

I use this one because I'm not cooking for a family, but if you do a site search there are many types available. I got mine from Chef's catalog about 5 years ago and it's practically indestructible and can even go on a campfire.

I love it! The only thing I can think of is---- Maybe the piece of meat you are cooking is too thick for the machine? Not sure. I've never had an issue with mine besides trying to cook a very delicate fish (falling apart).

We just used a friends a few weeks ago and loved it. It's definitely on my list to get one.

I have the small one and find that it is really only good for grilled cheese sandwiches. I tried to grill chicken and it cooked through but the only color on the meat was where the grill marks touched it. So white chicken with brown grill marks is not too appetizing.

If yours is not cooking the meat all the way through maybe your piece of meat is too thick. I always pound my chicken breast so that they are evenly thick and they cook faster. And 3 or 4 ounces of chick looks like a lot more.

I have one, and I absolutely love it. For burgers, I cook them 8 minutes and they are perfectly done. I haven't tried any other meats yet.

I love my George Foreman...It allows me to have grilled meat anytime I want. I even grill sandwiches on it. The clean up is easy and it's healthier.

I have two,I love the great big one better verses the medium sized one that has interchangeable plates. The bigger one is easier to clean and it has more room to cook on it for the family. I spray it with vinegar water as soon as I am done cooking so it wipes up easy with paper towels.

Mom bought the "outdoor/indoor" grill a couple of years ago and it works great. You do half to pay attention to the temperature, but other than that all cooks well on it. Fish, chicken, beef with bones and without bones...it's all gone well.

I use mine all the time and it works great! Sometimes I just use it to sear meat, then stick it in the convection oven to finish off.

well this is actually the second one i've had and both have kinda burnt the outside and not really cooked well on the inside.... not sure what happened to the first one , but bought the second one for my son , as he's 15yrs old now and I hate to see him fry burgers and he doesn't like them on the regular grill ....
so he had said how he liked them cooked on that, but just seems to leave insides raw for some reason... just wondering if anyone else felt the same way.

I have a george foreman and it cooks my food real good. Maybe you bought a faulty one. I will take it back to the store and get another.

It's very healthy in cooking the food.

Keep up the good work.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.
