George Tough Nonstick Coating - There's a lot to love about this nonstick coating; it's durable, easy to clean, and removes the need for butter and oil
One of the simplest grills on the market, the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Electric Grill has just one button and no dials or controls. That's great for novice grillers, but less convenient for those looking for more precise temperature adjustments. The grill is also a bit heavy, so it's best used for flat surfaces, like your deck or a countertop. The grill is made of cast aluminum, and it's rated for 12 to 15 servings. The manufacturer says that it's dishwasher safe, but we found that cleaning it by hand was quicker and easier. The grill heats up quickly, but it takes a few minutes for it to start cooking, and the temperature stays fairly steady once it's cooking. The grill reaches high temperatures (over 600 degrees F), and you can easily sear steaks, burgers, and vegetables.
George Foreman GRP4842MB Evolve Multi-Plate Grill
Removable Plates - Easy cleanup is essential, and thats what the removable grill plates are all about. Pop them in the dishwasher after grilling and theyll be ready to go for your next meal
The George Foreman GRP4842MB Multi-Plate Evolve Grill is our current pick for the best digital grill. Its versatility, easy cleanup, and price tag make it appealing for everything from grilling to searing to making breakfast. The GRP4842MB is a digital grill with 24 pre-programmed settings, including options for full roasts, BBQ, meat, fish, poultry, pizza, and frozen desserts. The temperature control panel is large and easy to read, and the GRP4842MB provides 500F searing capability, as well as 300-425F heat settings, so you can cook a variety of foods. The plates are nonstick, so food doesn't stick, and it's easy to wipe them clean. The Evolve model has fewer buttons than previous models, so it's easier to use. The GRP4842MB also has better temperature control than our previous pick, the George Foreman LED Grill, which maxes out at 425F. The Evolve also cooks more evenly than our previous pick. Our only gripe is that the Foreman GRP4842MB is large and heavier than our other top pick, the George Foreman Grill & Griddle, so it's harder to carry.

George Foreman 4-Serving Removable Grill Plate and Panini Press
Advanced George Tough Nonstick Coating: Theres a lot to love about this nonstick coating. Its 3x more durable, easy to clean, and removes the need for butter and oil
The George Foreman Grill and Panini Press combines the healthfulness of grilled food with the ease of cooking in a frying pan. The removable plates make cleanup easy and the sloped grilling surface helps remove up to 42% of fat from foods, making it a good choice for low-fat cooking. The grill plates are also non-stick, so meats and vegetables cook quickly without sticking.

George Foreman 5-Serving Removable Grill Plate and Panini Press
Premium Ceramic Coating - Time for an upgrade! Ceramic is the key to our improved nonstick coating. Its 5x more durable, stain- and fade-resistant, and free of PTFE and PFOA
The George Foreman GRP472P is our first pick for a budget grill thats as versatile as a Foreman Grill from a few years ago. The removable plates are a big improvement over the older models, and after testing, we found that cleaning the drip tray and plates in the dishwasher is a simple task. The drip tray is rather small, so grease tends to build up over time, but removing the drip tray and thoroughly cleaning the grill plates (and the entire grill) before each use will help reduce grease buildup. The grill plates are non-stick, so cooking is quick and easy. Theyre also relatively non-stick, so food doesnt stick to the grill plates. Despite some complaints about the drip tray on the earlier models, the drip tray on the GRP472P is removable, and the grill plates are easy to clean, so grease buildup should be minimal. The grill plates have groves that help keep food from sliding around on the plates, and the grill plates have sides that deflect grease away from the food. The removable plates make cleanup simple, and the grill plates are dishwasher safe.
George Foreman Evolve Grill Ceramic System Grill Plates
Premium Ceramic Coating - Time for an upgrade! Ceramic is the key to our improved nonstick coating, its 5x more durable, stain- and fade-resistant, and free of PTFE and PFOA, compared to previous George Foreman grill coating
The George Foreman Evolve grill system is a remarkably good option for grilling steaks and other meats. The plates are ceramic, so cleanup is quick and easy, and the plates are large enough to cook a 2- to 4-pound steak or burger. The grill plates are nonstick, so there's no need to oil or butter the plates before cooking. The plates are dishwasher-safe, so cleanup is a snap. The plates get very hot, so it's important to use cooking gloves when handling them. The plates are well designed, and the cool-touch handles make it easier to clean them and remove them from the grill. The grill plates heat quickly, so you can get a nice sear on thick steaks and burgers. The plates do scratch easily, so it's a good idea to use grilling pads or utensils when handling them. The plates are removable, so you can cook without the grill plates if you prefer. The plates have removable rolls, which allow you to expand or contract the plates to accommodate thicker or thinner cuts of meat. The plates are tall and narrow, so they're best suited for grilling steaks and other large cuts of meat, not burgers. The plates can be a little tricky to align with the handles on the Evolve grill, so it's a good idea to lightly grease the plates before placing them on the grill. The plates are versatile, so they can be used on the Evolve grill, a George Foreman grill, or on any other grill. The plates are thin, so they don't add much weight when cooking, and they make the grill lightweight. The plates are reasonably priced, and you can get 4 grill plates for $30. The plates are solid, but they scratch easily, and they aren't as sturdy as other grill covers. The plates don't come with lid clips, so the grill lid won't stay closed, and the grill plates don't fit well on the Evolve grill. The grill plates are dishwasher safe, but they're not microwave-safe. The plates are relatively heavy, so they're not really portable.
George Foreman 5-serving Plate Classic Grill
Nonstick coating allows for easy clean-up.
If you want fast, tasty food, George Foreman's Classic Plate Grill is a smart choice. This model features a powerful 1500W heating element that cooks food quickly (about 5 minutes for burgers), and its cool-to-the-touch surface allows you to cook without worrying about burning yourself. The grill folds up for compact storage, and the cord wrap keeps it out of the way. The George Foreman Classic Plate Grill's slope design helps eliminate fat and grease as you cook, and the powerful 1500W heating element ensures that your food is cooked thoroughly. The grill also doubles as a stovetop, so you can use it to make stews, soup, and other dishes. The downside of the George Foreman Classic Plate Grill is that it's a bit bulky for a desk drawer, so you'll either need to store it elsewhere or hide it away. And because it's made of stainless steel, it's fairly heavy, so it could be hard to move.
George Foreman 4-Serving Removable Grill Plate and Panini Press
Advanced George Tough Coating - We made the George Tough coating even stronger. Its 3x more durable**, easy to clean, and removes the need for butter and oil

George Foreman Rapid Grill Series
Advanced George Tough Nonstick Coating - Theres a lot to love about this nonstick coating. Its 3x more durable*, free of PFOA, easy to clean, and removes the need for butter and oil
The George Foreman Rapid Grill Series 5-Serving Removable Plate Electric Indoor Grill and Panini Press, Black, RPGV3801BK is a sleek, modern-looking grill that packs a lot of cooking power into its relatively small frame. The removable plates are easy to remove and dishwasher-safe, and the plates are nonstick, so cleanup is a snap. The nonstick coating makes the grill surface somewhat difficult to clean, but there's a trick: heat the grill on high for about 10 seconds, then wipe it clean with a damp paper towel. The grill plates are relatively small, so they'll be able to handle only two 4- to 6-inch burgers at a time, but they'll still make quick work of cooking a 10- to 12-ounce steak. The grill plate has a nonstick coating, but it's fairly easy to scratch, so be sure not to overcook your meat. Also, the grill plates don't heat up as rapidly as other models we tested, so it takes more time to cook burgers and steaks. The grill plugs into a standard outlet, so there's no need to worry about batteries or recharging. The grill has digital controls, but there are no settings to adjust the temperature, so you'll have to set the temperature manually. The grill is very easy to use, and it's ready to go right out of the box.
