I need to get a newer model George Foreman or grill like it.

Anyone have the George Foreman GRP4EMB Black Evolve Grill?
Im also thinking about getting the Cuisinart Griddler.

Thoughts on these or others?

I have the Cuisinart Griddler and can't imagine life without it. It lives on the counter and gets constant use. I love being able to easily swap from griddle to grill plates and back. And the clean up is always nice and easy. Being able to open it up totally flat, as well as the hinged top lid so that the top plate always rests on the food are big bonuses to me.

And my mom got us the waffle plates as a gift a bit ago, so now if we want Belgian waffles, we have that option too. (we already had a Villaware classic Waffler) :D

I have a panini maker and it works just the same - without the fat tray thingy. I bought it at Target for $20 on sale and I use it to grill veggies, obviously make paninis, but you could probably even put a steak in there! cook both sides no problem. It's from Giada DeLaurentiss' line but I know there are other brands.

We have the griddler, and it gets used alot! I think that we have to look at getting a new one soon. One of the heat elements is not getting as hot as the other now, plus we have used it so much and cleaned the plates so much, that some of the non-stick is starting to wear off.

We've had it for about 4 years.

Now for the summer I'll use the gas grill on the back deck.

I will purchase another Griddler in the fall.

I have the George Foreman GR0742S 3-in-1 Panini Press and Grill. It was the 2nd GF grill we bought, the first as of course the lean mean fat grillin machine which was a pain to clean.

Its an older style that was the first we found with removeable grill plates, although its temerature control is not as user friendly as the griddler.

I'd go with the griddler if I had to do it over again. Just looks like a better machine.

Actually, just go with what you can afford that has removeable plates to make the clean up easiest. Thats all that really matters. Its just a hot plate.
