Knock out the fat! That has been George Foreman's signature saying since 1995 about his line of grills. The George Foreman Grill has come a long way from the simple countertop versions found in college dorm rooms. This kitchen aid can be found in a multitude of colors, styles and shapes with outdoor versions now being available to consumers. But do these grills really create flavorful meals without the unwanted fat?

George Foreman opened many doors to home cooks with his version of indoor grilling. Food is placed inside the grill, the lid is lowered, timer set and your food is cooked without the added fat of frying and in less time than oven baking. Earlier models of the George Foreman Grills worked but had their downfalls with some models being bulky and others hard to clean. Over the last 10 years, these grills have improved dramatically especially with the variety of models now available.


The top-selling George Foreman Grill by far is The Champ. These grills are the small versions commonly used by those with limited space. The Champ features a 36 square inch surface which can be used when cooking for two. The grill plates are not removable but have a non-stick coating which makes clean-up simple. Since the surface area of this grill is quite small, the non-removable plates don't take away from this little grill's likable features. The downfall of The Champ is the size which doesn't always hold enough food for two people as the product describes.
