The quick answer is the George Foreman GRP99, size 6 servings, with removable plate grill.
You can see it on Amazon, or you can keep on reading my review below and find more details about my experience with a George Foreman grill and more info about this GRP99.
Generally, I don’t answer one question with another one, but what George Foreman grill has to do with my diet? Everything, it is my answer. Years ago I needed to lose some weight and I am very poor doing diets, once I can’t count calories and I need normal portions (5 oz of meat is a very little portion for me) and the standard diets have this kind of philosophy.
The only way I could do a diet was with a protein diet and cooking with a George Foreman Grill. Mine worked beautifully.
But now we are talking about George Foreman 6-Serving Removable Plate Grill and Panini Press and I can assure you that is even better than my previous model:
- Save your time, because the plates can accommodate up to 6 burgers (or 3 large steaks) since its area measures about 108 square inches.
- According to the owner’s manual, for grilling a 1-inch thick hamburger, 8 oz, you will need 9 to 10 minutes for medium-rare. It is very fast to prepare a meal and, if you need a comparison, it is just as much time as getting a cafe in a coffee shop and waiting in line. And having a guard on each side of the plate will prevent food from slip off, so you will not have to worry about it.
- Make your meals healthier with George Tough™ Triple non-stick coating which eliminates the eed for oil and it is very durable. As a matter of fact, it increases the flavor of the ingredient itself, if you are grilling a T-bone or a slice of zucchini, all you will get is the flavor of the meat or of the veggie itself. Another win is that once you don’t need to add oil to grill, it reduces the mess on the countertop.
- And even healthier: the patented sloped grill design drains all the unwanted fat to the drip tray for collecting it out.
- And speaking of fat in the kitchen in general, when I used to cook on other electric grills or traditional stove grills, it produced a huge amount of grease splatter. However, this George Foreman Grill doesn’t produce any greasy mess because its covered clam-shell design that keeps splatter on control.
- Don’t deform your steak: the 1 ½ inch floating hinge can accommodate thick pieces of meat (chicken or fish or even pressed paninis).
- Easy to use: digital timer and adjustable temperature control helps you to handle all aspects of your cooking.
- Easy to clean:
- with removable nonstick grill plates:
- which are dishwasher-safe making it extremely easy to wash.
- the con point is that is a little tricky to attach the grill plates, once you have to use the release handles on each side of the plates. But once you learn how to do it, it became very fast and easy.
- Using the plastic spatula specially designed to firstly scrape off any remaining piece of food.
- Drip tray is dishwasher safe as well. Welcome to the healthier meal and no trouble to clean.
- with removable nonstick grill plates:
- 3-Year Limited Warranty which is a pretty long warranty for its market.

And do you know what is the best feature of this particular GF grill model? It is the removable plates. However the fact that it is dishwasher safe, I found one review where the writer said that he wait till the plates cooled down and “lay them in the sink, and fill them with water. I don’t fill the sink with water, I just put enough water on the grilles so they are wet. Anytime later after 5 minutes have passed, I can just wipe the plates clean because of the non-stick. I dry them and snap them back onto the grill, and put it away till the next day.” So, I was glad to know that, if I wish so, I don’t need to clean the plates only in the dishwasher. And knowing how hard can be to clean a grill plate full of grease, I can tell you that the removable plates are a great feature of this GF grill model.
I want to add some extra information about the use of indoor grills beside the meat (and I mean about animal protein) because I wanted to improve my intake of vegetables and fruits and doing it with the George Foreman grill make me more enthusiastic about it.
So, I learn how to use my grill to cook zucchini, mushroom, and eggplant or pineapple and instead of boil it (making it without flavor and taking all vitamins and minerals off it) or fry it (could be yummy but increases the calories and grease on what you eat).
And also how to add some flavor in it, I learned some about herbs (rosemary, mint, parsley, cilantro and basil) or garlic, lemon juice and mustard or cinnamon and honey, for instance, instead of the industrial dressing where you always will find gluten, for not to mention tons of colorants or thickeners. It is very simple and fast to prepare grilled veggies or fruits, because all you need to do is clean, wash and slice your preferred vegetable or fruit and grill it.
I took advantage of how speed is to prepare it and improve the presentation: I slice it diagonally and preheated the grill in order to stamp the plates’ lines into the veggie, so I added some visual appeal to my meal as well.
And, just for you to know: I lost 13,2 pounds using my George Foreman Grill. So, I can tell you that it works.
