Question about George Foreman GF20G Indoor Grill
I have had the grill for 2 years and it gets a fair amount of use on a weekly basis. It never operates on high as I prefer the medium setting. The grill gets babyed. With all this TLC, the tefflon coating is coming off in the center of the ribbed grill area.
I would appreciate a new grill as this manufacturing error was never expected when I paid so much for a top quality George Foreman grill.
Without getting into the availability and safety issues involving(re)coating with teflon, and without getting on my soapbox about price vs. quality, I'll simply recommend either replacing the grill plates,or just using a cooking spray. Not asconvenient, you'd have to re-apply every couple of servings, butcomparatively easier to implement on the short-term (and perhapslonger, depending on whether or not you choose to either re-coat orreplace the grill plates. Note: You want to be sure there are noexposed heating elements when you spray on the coating, or you willlikely have a flash-fire - - NOT a good thing.
I've heard that there's a Teflon(tm) re-coating product available, but never found out where, and while not achemist, I do have some college training in chemistry, and am wary offluorine-based chemicals getting in my food because of what I've readabout it.
I'd contact the manufacturer (Salton, Inc.) customer servicesite for replacement parts or manuals. If they don't have them, they should knowwhere to send you (though if they don't, I'd seriously wonder about thecompany). You might also register your opinion of the product's durability and other characteristics........(;^])
