Since 2001 when the first George Foreman health grill was launched in the UK, health grills have become extremely popular, mainly due to the fat reducing designs, how easy and versatile they where and also the speed of the grills.
The plates on a health grill are designed especially to drain all of the unwanted fat and grease away from the food and into a drip tray. The high temperatures from the top and bottom plates sear the food and locks all of the flavours in. This means that you can still eat all of your favourite foods and be healthy at the same time.
A health grill does not require any extra effort over cooking with a normal grill, in fact, it actually makes cooking quicker and easier! Due to the design of the grill which cooks from both the top and the bottom at the same your food is cooked in half the time! On average sausages, burgers and chicken breasts all require about 10 minutes to cook, making the health grill a lot faster and convenient than using a standard grill or oven. You don’t need to wait for your oven to warm up anymore, and there is no dirty oven or grill racks to clean after. Simply turn your health grill on and chuck any food that wants cooking on to it.
Any food actually means ANY food. Most health grills can cook everything from vegetables to meat (fresh or frozen) or even paninis and sandwiches – some of them even have the ability to do pizza! If you get a health grill with a griddle as well then you can quite literally cook anything including egg! As most of the newer health grills have floating hinges you can adjust the capacity of the grill to cook even the thickest slices of meat or sandwiches.
The first health grills had fixed plates, however they soon changed to removable non stick plates which are also dishwasher safe. This means that not only is the health grill extremely easy to use, but even easier to clean. Simply unclip the plates and put them in the dishwasher.
There are several health grills and cookers available on the market ranging from small grills which can handle 2 portions of food, through to larger party grills which will easily handle 10 portions of food and which can be purchased with a discount when you use one of the Argos discount codes available. The largest brand of health grills in the UK is definitely George Foreman however recently several other famous chefs have released their own brand of health grill, including the George Foreman grill, Jamie Oliver health grill, Gordon Ramsay health grill and an Antony Worrall Thompson health grill. Each grill is different and they all have their own unique features and functions so its worth comparing the features of them all before buying one.
