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

If a longer detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used, (1) the
marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as
the electrical rating of the appliance, and (2) the longer cord should be arranged
so that it will not drape over the counter top or table top where it can be pulled on

the coating on the cooking plates.
10. Disconnect the plug from the wall outlet and allow to cool.
CAUTION: To avoid any sparks at the outlet while disconnecting plug,
make sure the "Power Light" is off (not illuminated) before
disconnecting the plug from the outlet.

Using the Bun Warmer
Model GR20BW comes equipped with a Bun Warmer. You can use this
feature to warm various kinds of bread products (hamburger buns,
breakfast biscuits, English muffins, tortillas, pita bread, sliced bagels, and
mini croissants). For example, if you are cooking hamburgers, you can
place your hamburger buns inside the Bun Warmer to warm them while
you cook the hamburgers! REMEMBER: The Bun Warmer should be
used to warm bread products only. It will not cook or grill any item. It is
not intended for defrosting. The Bun Warmer cannot hold very thick
bread products. If a bread product is too thick, you may have to cut it
(butterfly) to fit.
To use the Bun Warmer:
1. Bun Warmer Cover (P/N 20727)
2. Lid Latch (P/N 20793)
1. Lift up the Lid Latch (where it says "LIFT TO OPEN").
2. Place the bread product inside the Bun Warmer.
3. When bread is in place, close the Lid by lifting up on the Latch, lowering the Lid, and latching it into place. NEVER FORCE THE LID CLOSED.
Press gently to close Lid.
4. Allow 2-3 minutes after the machine has warmed up to complete
heating. If you are placing bread products in the Bun Warmer that
have been refrigerated, they will take longer to warm up.
CAUTION: The Bun Warmer does not have a separate operation switch.
If you want to warm some bread, but do not want to cook anything on
the grill, please be aware that the grill will be on and will become very
WARNING: Do not keep cooked food (such as meat, vegetables, potatoes,
etc.) warm in the Bun Warmer!

NOTE: Most meats were 1" thick. Poultry was cooked to 165˚, well-done. These are recommended
guidelines only. Personal taste and thickness of cut may vary cooking times. Always check for doneness
and always use fresh, refrigerated foods.
PLEASE NOTE: The USDA recommends that meats such as beef, pork, lamb, etc. should be
cooked to an internal temperature of 160˚F and poultry products should be cooked to an
internal temperature of 170˚F - 180˚F to be sure any harmful bacteria, Listeria and
Ecoli, has been killed. When reheating meat/poultry products, they should also be
cooked to an internal temperature of 165˚F.
User Maintenance Instructions
CAUTION: To avoid accidental burns, allow your Grilling Machine to cool
thoroughly before cleaning.
1. Before cleaning, unplug the Grilling Machine from the wall outlet and
allow to cool.
2. Inside cleaning: Place the Drip Tray under the front of the Grilling
Machine. Using the specially designed spatula, scrape off any
excess fat and food particles. Wipe the plates with absorbent paper
towel or a sponge. Run off will drip into the Drip Tray.
3. Stubborn build-up: Use a wet sponge to wipe the plates while the
Grilling Machine is still somewhat warm.
4. Empty the Drip Tray and clean with warm soapy water. Wipe dry.
5. Outside cleaning: Wipe with a warm, wet sponge and dry with a soft,
dry cloth.
6. Do not use steel wool, scouring pads, or abrasive cleaners on any
part of the Grilling Machine.
7. Do not immerse in water or other liquid.
8. To clean the Bun Warmer surface, simply wipe with a clean, damp
cloth or sponge. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners!
NOTE: For all recipes, please remember to place Drip Tray in front of the Grilling
Machine to catch drippings from the cooking process.
The Champ’s Sausage Without Guilt
You can start your day with a sizzling sausage patty that not only tastes
good, but is also good for you. This moist, flavorful sausage, served with
a country-style biscuit, makes the complete breakfast. Choose ground
turkey breast, which is lower in fat than ground turkey containing dark
meat and skin. Turkey, especially the light meat, is a good source of
niacin, which is an important B vitamin needed to maintain a healthy nervous system.

George’s Sausage Texas Style
A spicy sausage with true Southwestern zip! These breakfast sausages
are great served with a sautéed vegetable or fresh salsa and egg
scramble. Buy 90% lean ground beef for the least-fat sausage. Ninety
percent lean beef has 9 grams of fat with 4 of those grams being saturated fat; whereas 73% lean beef has 18 grams of fat with 7 of the grams
being saturated.

George Foreman’s PowerBurger
A flavorful hamburger that we think tastes even better than its all-meat
cousin! It pays to eat meals that minimize meat. To reduce saturated fat
in a typical burger, you can cut back on the amount of meat and make up
for it with plant-based ingredients. Bread crumbs and chopped vegetables have been added in this recipe. You could also try cooked rice, other
grains or cereal. In addition, choose whole wheat buns; they typically
contain one less fat gram than regular or even reduced-calorie buns.
If you settle for nothing less than a cheeseburger, Swiss cheese
is 1 gram lower in fat than Cheddar, American or Monterey Jack with 8 grams
of fat versus 9 in each ounce of cheese. However, reduced fat cheeses like
Cheddar or Swiss contain half the fat with 4 grams per ounce. Mustard
contains 1 gram of fat per tablespoon versus a whopping 11 grams of fat in a
tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Top your burger in healthful style with dark, leafy green lettuce, shredded
cabbage, fresh cilantro, basil or spinach.
1/4 cup chopped vegetables such as yellow onions,
green onions, zucchini, parsley (can be sautéed) 1/4
cup seasoned bread crumbs
3/4 lb. lean ground beef
• In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the vegetables and bread
crumbs. Add the ground beef and mix well.
• Shape the mixture into four 4-inch wide patties.
• Preheat the Grilling Machine for 3 - 5 minutes and place the patties on the
grill four at a time. Close the Lid.
• Cook for 5 - 6 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink and the juices
run clear, turning once.

Extension Feet
(P/N 20167)
We've included the set of four (4) feet with this Grill
so that you can grill fajitas and taco fillers—and then
directly fill hard taco shells from the Grill. Simply put
the taco shell into one of the drip trays, placing the
taco opening at the lip of the Grill.. Using the spatula,
rake the filling directly into the taco. Top with your
favorite veggies & salsa and enjoy!
Attaching Extension Feet
To put the extension feet onto the grill, follow these simple instructions:
Note: The Grilling Machine must be unplugged and clean (no food
inside) when attaching the feet. Do not attempt to attach the feet while the
product is plugged into a 120V socket and in use.
Turn the Grill over so that all four legs are in the air. Place one foot at a time
on the leg and push downwards until the foot is secure in place. After all four
feet are attached, turn the Grill over so that it is standing upright. Make
certain that the Grill is stable and all four legs are even. There shouldn't be
any wobbling! If there is wobbling, adjust the foot in question, so that it is
even with the others.
Note: Never use this product with only a partial set of feet. It is not
intended for use with less than all four feet at one time.
To Detach the Feet
After use, unplug the unit and wait until it is cooled down and the grilling plates
are cleaned.
When you have established that the unit is unplugged, cooled down and
cleaned, simply turn it over and pull off the feet.
When all four feet are removed, turn the unit back over to an upright
