So I bought one of these today, was on special at Game for R256.
My mom and aunt have been raving about these things for a long time, so I gave in.

I shall be trying rosemary lamb chops today, and a T-Bone tmrw.
It does not do pizza afaik.:(

So what else is it good for?

It's great for greasy toasted egg and bacon late night snacks. Don't tell George though.

Dont do steak in it! :eek: . . . wouldn't do lamb chops either come to think of it. Great for sausages and sosaties.

I used to buy the Woolies rump steak +/-500grams and cook them on the old George Foreman. They came out great. Was in my bachelor days and I like plain steak (no marinade etc).

Problem I had with mine is it didnt get quite hot enough to properly sear the meat first.

I dont use frozen patties (DIY is just as simple and tastes better imo) but I dont see why they wouldnt turn out nicely.
You can do anything on it, even pizza
Soup?

When I make things that I cant close the top with I get a cork (From a Bottle of Wine) And use that, so I can still close the lid but it doesnt touch the food (Great for melting cheese and stuff, also works awesome for those chicken fillets with the sauces (If you close it all the sauce squirts out...

Ive also done eggs on it but then I have to level it somehow... Really nice to make something quickly and not that hard to clean...

My mom gave me a recipe for chicken fillet, however it takes more than 10 min to prepare, therefore I shall not be attempting it.
