In the morning, I’m makin’ waffles!

Anyone recognize that obscure movie quote? Hint: think animated and braying.

This summer I received an unexpected present – a George Foreman Next Grilleration Removable-Plate grill. Whew, that’s a mouthful. The gift was a complete surprise. I didn’t know I needed a new grill. I hadn’t been shopping and drooling over kitchen appliances. It wasn’t even on my Amazon gift list. Appliances usually take up the king size portion of your budget when remodeling your kitchen. Consider what appliances you already have. What appliances do you use often? If you have less money to replace appliances, the stove and oven should be top on your list. When on a tight budget, you may consider a few updates rather than a whole overhaul of your kitchen design. If you’re looking for a good refrigerator repair professional, you may want to ask your friends and family for recommendations. It’s actually really common for kitchen appliances to break or stop working, and it’s likely that your friends or family members have had to choose a repair professional in the past. Getting an honest recommendation can be as simple as asking them, point-blank, what their experience was like. Remember: You don’t necessarily have to hire the refrigerator repair professional that your family recommends–it’s just always wise to have a number of options.

What was I thinking?? Since receiving this wonderful grill, I think I’ve used it nearly every single day.

What? Don’t you take your electric grill outside to the picnic table for photo shoots? Be honest now.

I’ve used it to make pancakes, waffles, grilled cheese sandwiches, lemon pepper chicken tenders, cheese quesadillas, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, and hamburgers. Breakfast is one of my all time favorite parts of the day – when else can you have sweets, carbs and protein all at the same time and call it a ‘meal’? This new grill is PERFECT for breakfast dishes.

The interchangeable plates work wonderfully – there is an upper and lower waffle set, a baking tray (similar to a basic griddle) for the bottom and grilling plates for top and bottom. Incredibly they are dishwasher safe and non-stick. That alone is worth retiring my old, crusty Foreman grill. The new grill can either rest flat or tilt forward – perfect for cooking steaks or anything else with a little, ahem, extra fat. The drip trays catch all that terrible grease and the spatulas (included) are designed to work with the ridges and contours of the grill. There is even a cookbook full of delicious recipes.

sarah and the flowers

Sarah stole the roses from my Foreman grill photo shoot and said I could take “6 or 8 pictures” of her. How well she knows me.

The only problem I’ve encountered so far with my new favorite appliance is where to store it. Or more importantly, how to keep it on the counter. My children (oblivious to my need to have the grill available at ANY MOMENT) keep putting it away in the pantry. I hate to fuss. I mean, after all, they are helping to tidy up the kitchen.

Still, I like knowing an easy meal — anything from breakfast tacos, tuna melt or herb-crusted salmon — is right there at my finger tips. I don’t want to haul this baby back and forth out of the pantry all day, do I? That might involve work and the goal is EASE of cooking in the kitchen. Now I have to train the children to leave the grill OUT on the counter.

david and his stick

Look, David’s getting ready to go inside and put the grill away. I can tell.

For a long list of customer reviews, visit the Amazon site. The response was overwhelming positive. Thanks for thinking of me, Mom. I LOVE the new grill and feel absolutely, totally and completely spoiled whenever I use it.

  1. Thanks for stopping by, Overwhelmed (love the name!!). I do want to admit this grill is very much a splurge item. It’s not a necessity (like my French Press which I NEED for my coffee) but it happens to come in extremely handy for our family. I am on a restricted diet of sorts and eat a yummy oatmeal pancake or waffle almost every day for breakfast. Tim is away from home during breakfast several days a week and we’ve concocted this wonderful pineapple pancake recipe that is delicious and filling (so much better than poptarts). All of that to say, for those reasons alone I’ve been using the new grill almost daily (sometimes twice daily).

    One thing I forgot to mention was the HUGE waffles it makes. We love waffles but for a large family it can be difficult to feed everyone together. It takes a long time to prepare enough waffles for everyone (unless you have multiple waffle makers running). The waffle plates in this new grill are BIG. It still only makes two waffles at a time but they are the size of four waffles so it cuts down on cooking time.

  2. Isn’t it great when you receive an unexpected gift and it turns out to be something that you absolutely love??? Unexpected gifts are always such a fun thing! It sounds like it is a great item…I’ll have to go check it out! Thanks for the “demo”!

  3. I’m delighted to SEE your new grill. I was in on the surprise and excited for you. I love mine, too- but it’s not fancy at all like yours. No dishwasher for mine. Rats.

    I affirm your goal of leaving it out and on the counter, if at all possible. How else will you use it with ease!! I was going to clear my counters with my new kitchen- and had everything put away. The 1st time I went for my Kitchen Aid mixer–which is big and heavy, I decided- it can STAY on top. JW is ok with that fortunately. But I put the food processor away as well as the small Forman and the waffle maker, rice cooker, etc.

    On my counter are: knife block, auto can opener, Mixer, and coffee maker.

    I love you Edgrens. Breakfast at your house–YUM!! AK

  4. Wow! I only have a regular George Forman grill…. now I feel robbed! lol

    Just kidding….but still… I like yours better….

    I love the picture of your daughter and the rose….. too darn precious!



  5. Never mind beanie babies I want to win one of these. I can see why you want it nearby. I hadn’t thought of having something like this but it sounds so useful. Off to look at the links.

  6. I LOVE the set-up photo complete with roses. I chuckled when I saw it, but hey, natural lighting is best right?? Might as well do it right. :-)

  7. Since you’re talking about the George Foreman grill, did you know that George Foreman became a Christian and is now an ordained minister of a church in Texas?

    It actually happened way back in 1977, but I just found out about it recently.

  8. Love your photo shoot and I really enjoy your movie quotes. I beginning to think that we have similar tastes in movies!

  9. I love my George Foreman Grill with removable plates too. Mine does not have all the different plates that your offers . . but oh it is so much easier than the older versions!

  10. Emily also blogged about the new GF with removable plates! I’ve already added it to my Christmas list which I just started (LOL)!
