Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill
I'm guessing your product is new -- the first couple of times you heat the elements, they're going to cook-off any chemicals that might have been on the plates as part of the manufacturing process. This may include any non-stick chemicals that might be bonded to the surface.
I personally try to avoid non-stick products as I'm leery of the Teflon/fluorine in the product, but I'm told I'm a little paranoid about things like that - - you have to use your own judgement.
If this smell persists after the first several uses, I'd contact the manufacturer's customer service people.
