Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Response
1. Can I cook frozen food on
my George Foreman Grill?
Yes, but of course the cooking time will be
longer. And it is preferable that food be
defrosted before placing on the George
Foreman Grill. Please refer to the Suggested
Cooking Chart in this manual for examples.
2. Can I cook kabobs on the
George Foreman Grill?
Yes. In order to protect the non-stick surface
use wooden skewers. We recommend that
you soak the skewers first in water for about
20 minutes. This will keep the skewers from
burning.
3. After cooking with garlic,
how can I remove the smell
of the garlic from the surface of my George Foreman
Grill?
After cleaning your George Foreman Grill
according to the "User Maintenance
Instructions" make a paste of baking soda and
water and spread on the surface of the Grill.
Allow it to sit for a few minutes and then wipe
away with a damp sponge or cloth.
4. How can I cook hot dogs
on my George Foreman
Grill?
Preheat your Grill for 5-minutes. Place the hot
dogs lengthwise on the Grill. Close the Lid and
cook for 2-1/2 minutes or until desired browning is achieved.
5. Can hash browns be prepared on my George
Foreman Grill?
Yes, self-browning hash browns can be prepared by preheating the Grill for 5 minutes.
Add hash browns onto the Grill surface, close
the Lid, and cook for approximately half the
time stated on the package for oven preparation.
6. Any other cooking suggestions?
Fresh peppers can be grilled for 2-3 minutes
for skinning purposes.
Do not use an extension cord with this product.
Electric Power
If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be operated on a separate
electrical circuit from other appliances.
Plasticizer Warning
CAUTION: To prevent Plasticizers from migrating from the finish of the
countertop or tabletop or other furniture, place NON-PLASTIC coasters
or placemats between the appliance and the finish of the countertop or
tabletop.
Failure to do so may cause the finish to darken, permanent blemishes
may occur or stains can appear.
Grilled cheese sandwiches can also be
cooked on your George Foreman Grill.

Polarized Plug
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a
polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
Short Cord Instructions
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question
Response
1. Can I cook frozen food on
my George Foreman Grill?
Yes, but of course the cooking time will be
longer. And it is preferable that food be
defrosted before placing on the George
Foreman Grill. Please refer to the Suggested
Cooking Chart in this manual for examples.
2. Can I cook kabobs on the
George Foreman Grill?
Yes. In order to protect the non-stick surface
use wooden skewers. We recommend that
you soak the skewers first in water for about
20 minutes. This will keep the skewers from
burning.
3. After cooking with garlic,
how can I remove the smell
of the garlic from the surface of my George Foreman
Grill?
After cleaning your George Foreman Grill
according to the "User Maintenance
Instructions" make a paste of baking soda and
water and spread on the surface of the Grill.
Allow it to sit for a few minutes and then wipe
away with a damp sponge or cloth.
4. How can I cook hot dogs
on my George Foreman
Grill?
Preheat your Grill for 5-minutes. Place the hot
dogs lengthwise on the Grill. Close the Lid and
cook for 2-1/2 minutes or until desired browning is achieved.
5. Can hash browns be prepared on my George
Foreman Grill?
Yes, self-browning hash browns can be prepared by preheating the Grill for 5 minutes.
Add hash browns onto the Grill surface, close
the Lid, and cook for approximately half the
time stated on the package for oven preparation.
6. Any other cooking suggestions?
Fresh peppers can be grilled for 2-3 minutes
for skinning purposes.
Do not use an extension cord with this product.
Electric Power
If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be operated on a separate

or placemats between the appliance and the finish of the countertop or

Failure to do so may cause the finish to darken, permanent blemishes
may occur or stains can appear.
