My birthday follows shortly after Christmas, so my “Wish List” is very easy for my husband to handle. He is able to pick two major items and get them at the same time. And, since I no longer have the urge that I used to have when I was younger, he is able to leave one of the items in the garage until I get it for my birthday.
The urge I am talking about is the crazy unsticking of the wrapping tape and then taping it back… in order to peek at the gift’s box. It just seems like it’s way too difficult to do that anymore and I seem to have outgrown the “need to know” what I am going to get for my birthday. Hey! I’m just glad to be celebrating another birthday!
Anyway… I waited about a week after my birthday before I actually tackled all of the styrofoam sheets and internal plastic bags in the Next Grilleration G5‘s box. I always put off opening “technical items” since I know (with my compulsive tendencies!) that I am going to have to read every word in the owner’s manual, which has probably been translated into English by a computer program in a non-English speaking country! Yes, I’m a sucker for the “IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS”… You know the ones… “Read instructions all prior utilize this device.” (That crazy English-translating computer program…)
I took everything out of the box, vacuumed up all of the fly-away styrofoam bits and pieces, washed all five of the grilling plates, set up the grill on the kitchen counter, and decided to use the grill for making dinner that night. I went to the box that it came in, vacuumed up all of the new fly-away styrofoam bits and pieces, and went back to the “IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS” booklet.
The owner’s manual has the settings and times, as well as the type of grilling plates that should be used to grill all sorts of items. Let me say this, we usually grill our steaks outside on our large grill. BUT>>> after grilling our steaks on the George Foreman Next Grillerations G5, that is how we will be grilling them from now on. They were delicious! And, I love that I can put the grilling plates right into our dishwasher. I am actually planning to leave our George Foreman grill right on the kitchen counter… that’s how much I foresee using it!
