George Foreman grills are great n’all, but you know what gets me? Their cleaning instructions.
-Do not use abrasive materials when cleaning your grill
-Do not use abrasive detergents
-Clean with damp kitchen towel and dry with a soft polishing cloth.
What they should say, is:
-Don’t worry about attempting to de-grease this yoke while it’s still hot, because obviously you’re too busy eating at this stage. Instead, sprinkle a light dusting of baking soda on the surface, come back when the unit has cooled, then scrape the bollix out of it with that rather useless plastic tool we provide for you.
-Don’t use scouring pads (obviously), but don’t be lured into buying one of those gimmicky Foreman sponges either, unless you like the feeling of listeria infested rasher excrement between your fingers.
-Best of luck degreasing this contraption… hate to be you!
That’s what they should say.
