Back to School with Healthy Cooking: George Foreman Evolve Grill Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/7) CLOSED

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Proper nutrition is important for everyone but especially for kids. Now that school is back in session, my children are starving after a day of learning and play. Sometimes, with all after-school activities, there is little time to prepare dinner. My George Foreman grill helps me make healthy cooking fast and convenient.

I've had a small George Foreman grill for years, and use it regularly. Grilling meat, fish, and veggies is so easy! Another thing my family just loves is panini sandwiches, and these come out delicious on this grill.

Well, my favorite grill is now all grown up - or, shall we say, evolved! I tried the new George Foreman Healthy Cooking Evolve grill. In addition to everything that I love about George Foreman grills - easy to use, making healthy cooking quick without sacrificing taste - the Evolve grill has some wonderful new features. It comes with customizable plates! And, they are removable and dishwasher safe. Hooray!
The Evolve grill I received has 4 plates: 2 grill, 1 mini-burger, and 1 deep-dish baking plate. Other options that can be purchased separately are:
  • Griddle plate – allows to prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner without adding extra oil or butter;
  • Cupcake/muffin plate – for six muffins or cupcakes; 
  • Panini plates (2) – no need to butter the bread when making panini;
  • Omelet plates (2) – flipping omelets used to require lots of butter or oil to prevent sticking, however, with the George Tough™ nonstick coating, making omelets is simpler and healthier;
  • Waffle plate – no need for a waffle maker! Enough said.
The cooking surface of the Evolve grill is 84 square inches that provide enough space for preparing up to 4 servings at a time. The deep-dish baking plate works great for casseroles. I love cooking those because I can sneak in as many veggies as I want! My kids are especially fond of the mini burgers - I make these with ground turkey for an extra healthy, delicious meal. And, of course, the traditional grilling surfaces that are so much versatility to healthy cooking.

Here are some other cool features that are pretty self-explanatory:
  • Digital time and temperature for better, more precise control;
  • George Tough™ nonstick coating for easy cleaning;
  • Signature Foreman heating elements for even heating;
  • Adjustable angle to go from a sloped to flat cooking surface;
  • On/Off switch for added security;
  • Dishwasher-safe drip tray;
  • Dishwasher-safe spatula for no-fuss food removal.
Even if you are not in love yet with the previous George Foreman grill, you will be once you try the Evolve grill. It is available on the George Foreman Healthy Cooking site for $129.99. Additional plates retail for $14.99- 27.99. Shipping is free on orders over $99.
