The opportunity, to review the George Foreman Evolve grill, could not have come at a better time for me. I made the decision to adhere to a healthier eating plan, a little over 3 weeks ago, and the grill came in shortly after I started. I already have a small Foreman grill, but it rarely got used, since it did not have removable grill plates. The Evolve grill not only has removable plates, but a nice big cooking surface and many interchangeable grill plate options.
This grill is very user friendly. Digital time and temperature settings are conveniently located on the top front of the machine. The grill plates are both easy to remove and to clean. To remove, simply pull out on the handle latches and lift off each plate. The grill plates, on the George Foreman Evolve, clean up well with warm soapy water. Not all non-stick coatings are created equal, and I would have to say, the Evolve has one of the better coatings that I have had experience with.
The George Foreman Evolve grill comes in several model configurations. It is available in both black and silver, and there are different grill plates included with the models. The model featured in this review is the GRP4EP, which includes a traditional grill plate and a cross-hatch grill plate, as well as, the deep dish bake plate and slider insert (a great configuration with football season just starting).
I primarily used this as a grill, and have been pleased with the results. By making lower fat meals fast and easy to prepare, the George Foreman Evolve grill has certainly made it a less daunting task to stick to a healthy eating plan. I’ve made grilled chicken and paninis several times already. I also recently featured a simple 160 calorie peach dessert on my food blog, which was prepared on the Evolve grill.
Verdict: I am quite happy with George Foreman’s new Evolve grill, and I doubt you would be disappointed either. This would make an excellent gift for anyone who is trying to implement a healthier lifestyle.
