My Holiday Gift That I Got---for Myself!

In 2004 (we think!) Chuck, via Gino’s suggestion, bought me a George Foreman Grill (in white) and I put it away for a decade.

About 2-3 years ago I decided to make a major change in my kitchen and I covered the stove top and oven door with contact paper and set the microwave oven on the stove top, the crockpot near it and, yes, the grill on top of the microwave oven!

Using all 3 made life a lot easier but I could kick myself for not using the grill before as it is great for making so many things and, like the crockpot and microwave, a snap to clean after using. (By the way for those of you who may not know it there are liners for the crockpot that making something in it cuts cleaning time in half!)

I’ve been using the grill more and more as the months went by and the only complaint I have is that it isn’t big enough for the portions of steak, chicken and sandwiches I eat/need.

So I did what makes perfect sense--I bought a Hanukah and Christmas gift for me--a new grill in red and almost twice the size of the white one. I’ve been using it all week.

I could have put it on my Birthday Gift Wish list but like the kid I am when I want something I want it--so I got it!!

Wait. You don't use burners or the oven, just those appliances instead? Nothing wrong with that, it's just interesting. You wouldn't need pots and pans. Do you have a toaster oven?

Nope--if I need toast I put it on the grill!

Just wait until you get your grubby mits on an air fryer. You'll wonder how you lived so long without it. Maybe bacon isn't an issue for you, but the air fryer cooks it without any mess and the pure white grease can be saved for cooking without those annoying black bits. I just cooked a spirialized potato in 10 minutes to go with my sausage and eggs (onion, mushrooms and garlic too, of course). It can cook a small whole chicken in 35 minutes without heating up the kitchen. The only thing it hasn't done well for me is.... chicken wings. LOL That should be the most popular use, but not for me.

That's what I cook. But the cooker can cook almost anything. You can even bake a cake in one of the bigger ones.

AIR fryer, not OIL fryer!
