I've had one for 2 years, and I love it! I sometimes use it for sandwiches, but mainly for grilling veggieburgers and veggie dogs. I don't know what I would do without it.

I have one (a separate one from my omni parents' meaty grill), and I'm the same way with chick'n patties. I like 'em crispy on my Foreman grill.

i use mine a lot, it's great for an apartment. i have been cooking asparagus on it a bunch lately. i have the small one so it can be tricky when i try to put to many veggies on it.

Ok, since I've never used one of these things, I'm curious: What's the advantage of this over a frying pan? The fat aspect doesn't bother me at all.

OOOh i forgot about mine, its tucked away in the basement clutter!!

i will have to pull it out, i never thought to put the chick patties on it!



snow white, i like it because its super easy clean up, every thing just wipes right off, and things cook on both sides at the same time. they are very easy to use.

the only problem is the front gets hot and i have burning myself a couple of times

I love grilling sandwiches on here... or vegan patties (homemade or not), etc.



It's just so much cleaner than the fry pan... and a whole lot quicker b/c hot is applied firmly to both sides.



And...I love those sear marks on my sandwiches/veggies, etc.



For what I do on the grill, I can't think of a time I've had to set it for longer than 6 minutes on anything I've had to cook.



Okay... maybe once... but I can't remember what it was.

I use mine to make panini-style sandwiches all the time. I usually brush the bread on the outside of the sandwich with olive oil and put the whole sandwich in the forman grill. Portabella mushrooms are great on it too. What a great invention!

When you fry something the food gets cooked in its own grease, on the Foreman grill the grease runs off. The grill heats both sides at the same time, and leaves grill marks. Grilling is healthier.

I like that it cooks faster than a frying pan, and makes less mess. I use mine ALL the time. I even use it to grill vegetables. Because it has a "lid" and grills from both top and bottom, it sorta grills AND steams the veggies at the same time, giving them really nice flavor/color.



I also use it to cook "chik" patties, and quorn "cutlets", and other things of that nature. I use it to make panini style sandwiches probably most of all.

Grill some Veggies!

Zucchini is great. I've even grilled fruit and put it on some vanilla Ice cream with some warm chocolate sauce. YUM
