Nope, don't own one. I know people who do have them and they think they're great. By the looks of them they seem to cook meat nicer than frying in a pan in their fat :? more like a grill grill.

yes!!! i have a george foreman grill. its not the biggest one available that you can buy because mine came in a pack with a george foreman oven too (which we used once and havent used since). we got it as an engagement present and we use it at least 3-4 times a week. the teflon is starting to go away though because of nearly 3 years of constant use so we are up for a new one. i use mine to toast sandwiches as well and i use it for things like steak, chicken breast, bacon and sausages. easy to clean as well. i never use the actual grill we have in our house and rarely use a frypan.

I love mine. It cooks a mean steak in such a short time . Also i agree with Kate great for sandwiches. You can also cook things like fish fingers in it. Very versatile. i would recommend it for sure :D

I love the George Foreman Grill. My folks bought one for my hubby for his birthday a few years ago.. and it's always being used. I prefer it over all the other cooking pans/grills etc that we have in the house. The only thing I don't like about it is sometimes it can dry chicken breasts out that little bit too much but it cooks an awesome piece of red meat. The thing that shocks me sometimes is the amount of crap that comes out of the meat into the tray. Shows how much stuff they put in meat to "beef" it up (if you pardon the pun!). I also toast our sandwiches with it.

I'd highly recommend one! Ours is the family sized one (I believe).

oooohhh, if you're getting a new microwave, do have a look at the convection microwaves (microwave and normal oven in one). We have one and it's SOOOOOOO handy (especially since the oven that came with the house is festy and we refuse to use it)

Hey Tegan we had thought about a convection, but I love my gas oven!!! Scott was trying to steer me towards one, but I really think that it would be wasted.......once he saw the price of the convection he was more inclined to agree with me LOL!!!

Do you think they would be better than a gas oven??? I would love to hear your thoughts on it... :)
