Review - George Foreman Evolve Grill

I got the chance to review the George Foreman Evolve Grill about a month ago and was ecstatic to put it to use! When I received it I was still in school and was worried about what I was consuming. I'm not on any diet and eat what I wish because I'm so picky. Being in school and coming home late made things much worse, but putting the Evolve grill in the picture made things better! :)

I received the George Foreman Evolve Grill with a a few (of many) plates and a spatula and a drip tray. The plates I received was the crosshatch plate, deep dish plate and mini sliders plate set. The grill itself looks very attractive and features a digital time and thermometer control. This massive grill has 84 sq. in. of cooking surface.
The day we received the grill we immediately prepared some meat for burgers. The grill heats up very quickly and I like that when the time runs out on the digital screen, it does not turn off, that wold be a hassle. To cook the burgers we used the cross hatch plates and placed the drip tray right below the grill. As we turned a knob on the back to tilt the grill down, the fat from the burgers was constantly dripping into the drip tray. It was disgusting and amazing to see so much fat was in that trap, which is actually quite deep. The burgers cooked through well in about 4-5 minutes.

The plates are very versatile, as I can make eggs, bacon, casseroles, and even bake things like brownies in the deep dish plate and with the cross hatch plates cook bacon, grill chicken, grill all kinds of veggies, fruits, etc. Coming home from school the Evolve grill allowed me the option of cooking something quick, healthy and easy like grilled chicken with some veggies or even a quick grilled sandwich. For that reason alone the evolve has been a great addition to my life.

As I previously mentioned, the Evolve grill has a cooking surface of 84 sq. in., all non-stick and is extremely easy to clean; I find that a dish towel with some warm water will quickly clean the plates without having to remove them or put them in a dishwasher between major cleanings. Some cons I find with the Evolve grill is the cooking surface, I have a big family and more cooking surface would always be great. Also, I dislike that the drip pan doesn't somehow attach to the grill, as we cook the grill tends to move the drip pan making a little mess on the counter.

Overall, the grill has been a great addition to the family. The ease of cooking healthier foods in a short amount of time and not much effort has been great. It is very user-friendly and even my little 8 y/ brother grills his chicken nuggets here and there. The George Foreman Evolve Grill sells on their website for $129.99, but also sells at store like Target, Kohls and Amazon.com.
