Just like any George Foreman Grill, this machine is super reliable and easy to use. It cooks great tasting food in 50% of the time and you can visibly see all of the fat/grease coming out of your food. 

We don’t really agree with the 4 portion statement. We struggled to fit 3 decent sized chicken breasts on here, let alone 4. Because of this, we would say this machine is more suited towards couples, looking to make a meal for 2. Still that doesn’t mean that this grill isn’t one of the best George Foreman grilling machines.

After using this grill for 6 months we can safely say we appreciate the extra grill space. It’s a reliable unit that makes cooking Chicken, Beef, Pork etc effortless and efficient. The removable drip tray and the non-stick plates allow for easy cleaning and simple packing up. The vertical storage system is a nice touch, although we kept it on display in our kitchen as we liked the red paint job!

If you’re looking for a George Foreman fit for the family then look no further. We really enjoyed having the extra space to cook all of our food on and it just seemed more efficient than the lesser portion machines. The only downside we experience is the size of the grill. However, luckily it can be stored vertically and hidden away inside a cupboard.

We absolutely love the combined grill & griddle George Foreman have rustled up for us with this machine. To be able to cook different cuts in different ways at the same time on the same machine is excellent. We found ourselves experimenting with some pretty crazy burger recipes just because we had the ability to cook things side by side with ease. One of the standout best George Foreman grilling machines

6. George Foreman 4-Portion Family Grill and Melt

The George Foreman 4 portion Family Grill & Melt has an elevated grill feature with an articulate hingle which gives you the option of cooking with a contact grill – Perfect for cooking meats, fish, veg etc OR a elevated grill – Perfect for melting cheese on a burger or sandwich.

Apart from the elevation feature, this grill operates much like the other George Foreman’s in our list. It offers easy cleaning with the non-stick coated grill plates & removable drip tray.

This one comes with a metal handle and vertical storage so it can be easily tucked away inside a cupboard.

6 Month Thoughts
During our 6 months with this grill, we used the elevated grill feature a handful of times. It works well, but in the grand scheme of things it’s more a gimmick than a USP. However, it’s not a bad grill overall as it’s a George Foreman at heart!

7. George Foreman Enhanced 5-Portion Grill and Melt

The George Foreman Enhanced 5 portion grill & Melt boasts patented angled plates designed to channel away excess fat/grease. The removable plates allow for easy cleaning and then grill itself has top lid which locks open for fast, grilling using infrared technology.

The main selling point of this grill is its clever locking lid feature which includes an intense quartz heating element. This turns your Grill into a conventional grill much like the one found in your oven! You can use it for a variety of things including to melt cheese on sandwiches or when cooking delicate foods such as fish where you don’t want to apply pressure, just radiant heat.

You can easily remove the grill plates once they have cooled down. Once removed you can either easily hand-wash them or stick them into the dishwasher for a deeper clean.

6 Month Thoughts
Again, much like the 4 portion Grill & Melt, we only really used the melt functionality a handful of times throughout our 6 months with the grill. Despite this, we enjoyed using it and found it super easy to clean after use. Being able to remove the grill plates and wash them easily by hand was a god send. This machine is truly one of the best George Foreman grilling Machines money can buy.

Ever since I started cooking I’ve been fascinated by how different people’s techniques are and how they best utilise the ingredients around them. Even the person living next door will have their own unique way of frying an egg or cooking a salmon fillet.

This fascination led me on a journey across the globe to discover the countless practices and traditions the world of cooking has to offer. I thought you’d enjoy and find value in sharing that journey with me so I created Cooked Best!
