How to Use the George Foreman Grill. The George Foreman grill is a great tool to have in the kitchen. It can cook many different kinds of foods while keeping them healthy and reduces the use of grease and fat.

Step 1

Set the grill on a sturdy, flat surface, like the kitchen counter. Place the grease tray in the correct position to catch the grease.

Step 2

Plug the grill into a regular electrical outlet. Turn it on to the appropriate temperature for the type of food you are cooking. Let the grill warm for a few minutes.

Step 3

Place your food on the grill and shut the top of the grill. Cook the food for the appropriate amount of time. You don't need to flip the food; the lid is also a grill and cooks the food on both sides at the same time.


Step 4

Remove the food and unplug the grill. Allow it to cool down before handling. Empty the grease tray.

Step 5

Scrape the grill with the plastic scraper provided with the grill. This removes all of the large pieces of food. Wipe with a damp paper towel to remove everything else from the grill.


After removing the food and before the grill cools, carefully pour a little water over the cooking surface of the grill to help remove food. Removing the food while it is hot lessens the amount of stuck-on food later.


Do not immerse the grill into water, even if it is unplugged and cooled off.
