    I love my grill!! It is one of the few things like this I have really used a lot! My biggest complaint was cleaning it. So I came up with a great way to do it!
    As soon as you unplug the grill, wet a few paper towels and lay them on the grill, then close it. Later when the grill is cool, it will wipe clean easily. Then it's just a matter of washing it off and put it away!
    With this hot weather, I don't even want to go outside to use the grill if I can use the GF grill...... :thumbup: :-D

    That is a cool idea. I don't use mine much at all, but I should! Cleaning it and finding the drip pan is often more effort than it is worth.

    I have one and love it. As soon as I take the meat or whatever you are cooking off of it, I use a paper towel and wipe it out. The drippings are real easy to wipe off when it is hot. That is a lot easier than waiting till it cools off. That is a pain in the "you know what" to clean when it gets cool and baked on.

    That's exactly what I do to clean mine. I absolutely love mine and it's just perfect for the 2 of us. It is so handy.

    We learned about the George Forman grill while my DH was at a VA school for the blind. His instructor showed us how DH could cook meat or veggies and the day I went for my day of instruction he cooked a delicious pork chop and grilled veggies without burning himself or the food. I was really impressed so we bought one. I usually do most of the cooking but every once in a while he will cook for us.
    I really spoil him and probably should insist that he does more so he can take care of himself if there comes a time when I can't. But in real time, it is so much easier to do it myself, said the little red hen.

    We love our GF grill! Thanks for the cleaning suggestion. We clean ours up by heating it and wiping it out, but your idea sounds great.

    We love cooking tilapia on it. So easy and quick.

    Judy, I never thought about cooking tilapia on it but I will try it tonight. Thanks for the idea.

    This is my second one. This one has the removable trays and they can just be put into the dishwasher. (I have only done that once) Removing them and washing in sink is much easier and quicker and it can be put away as soon as I am done using it. I used the paper towel method on the old one and it did work.

    I've forgotten about mine too. It's way in the back of a cabinet. Need to get it out again, especially in the summer. I also used the paper towel method, and it worked good. I do the same thing on my waffle iron.

    I have two GF grills. The first one is bigger and I use it if we have a lot to grill. I use the paper towel soaking method to clean it. The second one has the removeable grills. I love it. I use it mostly because it is easier to clean, plus with just two of us, I don't need as much grilling space.
