Who doesn't know George? George Foreman has over 100 million grills sold worldwide. I'd be surprised if anyone doesn't own a "George". That is how I affectionately speak of my grill. "My George". I absolutely love "my George". I am actually on my third. Not because there are any issues, either. I remember the first one I purchased was the original and I didn't want to spend too much. I bought it because I heard how quick and easy it was to cook with and that the fat drained off. Then I purchased the Power Grill: Grill & Griddle and passed the old one along to one of my friends. Now, I am the very proud owner of the new Evolve Grill. I am the lucky recipient of an Evolve Grill from George Foreman Healthy Cooking to review! Can you imagine how exciting for me? I have always loved each one of my George Foreman grills.
This is the grill that lets you have an entire kitchen of versatility in just one compact appliance! The Evolve™ Grill • Bake • Muffin starts with 4 plates – 2 grill plates, 1 deep-dish bake pan and 1 cupcake & muffin pan insert – then lets you build your collection with up to 7 additional plates available. It’s the perfect grill for anyone looking to expand their healthy cooking menu without cluttering counters with a lot of extra appliances. For my review, I was given the traditional plate, a cross-hatch grill plate, a deep dish bake pan and a slider plate.
You cannot get any easier than this grill! There is a digital timer and temperature control, enabling you to cook at the temperature YOU want to cook at. An additional feature my others did not come with, depending upon the insert being used, you can make the surface flat or sloped. Because we have had other grills by George and have cooked many of the standard items in the past, we conducted our initiation of our grill by cooking sliders. They were delish.
I love that George Foreman Healthy Cooking grills cook your meat item on both sides at the same time, allowing not only for even cooking, but cooking time is cut way down. As I have said here many times, we work full time and have a 2 hour commute (total) a day. When we get home, we do not want to cook anything that keeps us in the kitchen all night. "My George" allows us to complete our dinner cooking a record time. And, in case your are thinking it always has to be hamburgers, you couldn't be more wrong! We have cooked all varieties of meats and have also cooked fish on ours!
With a large variety of meal options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack times in between, the paves a time-saving and healthy path to eating right without sacrificing good taste. What makes this grill different is the option to add plates and customize the grill based on individual preferences. Now it’s easier than ever to create healthy, delicious meals with one versatile appliance. Additional inserts are available.
- 4-plate starter set includes 2 grill plates, 1 deep-dish bake pan and 1 cupcake & muffin pan insert
- Patented sloped design lets fat and unwanted grease drain away as you cook
- Adjustable angle hanges the cooking surface from flat for even cooking to our patented slope for healthier grilling
- George Tough™ nonstick coating allows you to cook oil-free, plus minimizes cleanup
- Digital time & temperature control lets you easily set and monitor cooking for precise results on a variety of foods
- Extra-high floating hinge adjusts automatically to the thickness of food to perfectly press thick cuts of meat and stuffed Panini
- Embedded heating elements provide even heat from the center to the sides of the plate and faster temperature recovery
- Custom drip tray catches fat and grease as you cook, then empties easily for fast cleanup
- Custom spatula offers easy serving without scratching the nonstick surface
- Dishwasher-safe removable plates & accessories make cleanup a breeze
The Evolve grill cooks EXTREMELY FAST! For our George Foreman Evolve Grill initiation, for the first time we cooked slider hamburgers (While there is a slider pan, our store sells sliders pre-made and I had grabbed them without thinking about making my own). We made 18 hamburgers cooked in less than 10 minutes! They were not only completely cooked through, it took the fat off the meat. I have always loved George Foreman grills because we can cook our meals quickly, a plus when you work full time and have an hour commute home. I do not want to be stuck in the kitchen.
The grilling plates come off easily. All you do is pull each handle on each side, when they have cooled. They clean up quite easily. I did scrub because of the lines but I had both clean in less than 5 minutes.
Excited to try out the deep baking dish plate that I received, I mixed up a chocolate cake. I poured half the batter in the George Foreman Evolve Grill and set at 350 degrees for only 20 minutes. I always test my cakes, but this cooked so fast that I could not believe it was done! It was! Amazing! We made the other half of the batter for a layer cake.
I’m thrilled with the George Foreman Evolve Grill. With all the advantages, this appliance is a keeper!
