Question about George Foreman GRP4P Indoor Grill

1 Answer

Problems grill Hi, I am on my third grill. Each time I purchase one they do not grill evenly. That is, the bottom tray cooks fine, while the upper tray does not seem to get as hot. Consequently, we have to flip the item so it is cooked even on both sides. Please advise.

Hi Char char,

If this is your third grill, you're far more patient with a manufacturer than I am. Unless there's something about this brand you really like, I'd be shopping around. I don't know if I'm allowed to name names under FixYa's terms of use, but I'd recommend looking at brands that (a) have been around a long time, and (b) have a reputation for replacing defective merchandise, kind of like Sears-Craftsman with their hand tools (lifetime replacement not questions asked). (No, I'm not affiliated with Sears, and that's not the only place I buy tools - - just an example).

I'd contact the manufacturer (Salton, Inc.) customer servicesite for replacement parts or manual. If they don't have them, they should knowwhere to send you (though if they don't, I'd seriously wonder about thecompany).

How to cook with electric smoker How to cook a brisket? Do you place directly on grate or do you place in a pan


I have found that when using my electric smoker and cooking ribs or brisket I use the gadget that you can purchase that puts your food on end thereby exposing all the meat surface to smoke.The item I use I made myself but similar racks can be puchased. I would not use a pan at any time , if nothing else place directly on a rack.
Happy Smoking !

I have a F&P Paprika range purchased second hand. It has no lower element in the oven and when attempting to bake the upper element burns the top of the food without cooking the bottom. Is this a design...


just been looking and if you are using the top that is the grill not the oven .... the oven and grill are in the same place bottom is oven top is grill.f460c0d3-6521-459d-80b5-9b83642e7906.jpg

New Capt Cook 4 burner - even on Low it goes through 500 degrees in minutes, and there is hardly any difference in flame size between Hi and Low. what's wrong with it - why can't it stay at a low...


I suspect you have a propane grill or it at least the burner orifices are for propane. Because on Natural gas, what you described is virtually impossible. Is it safe to continue to use the grill? Certainly not. Get back in touch with BBQ's Galore dealer you purchased it from (as it's still under Warranty) and have them to either service it or replace it.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I replaced the porcelain enameler flavorizer bars on my Weber genesis gas grll less than a year ago--four out of the five bars are bent and misshapen--no longer straight. Why??? They still look brand...


You are overheating the grill - make sure the thermometer is working on the right side of the grill lid. You should not heat above 550F (preheat) and you should not cook above 500F.

Secondly, you must clean out the drip tray (not just the aluminum foil tray but the bigger tray it is attached to (it slides out the front of the grill too). The grease that piles up on this tray can catch fire and overheat the grill (including the flavorizor bars).

Last suggestion is to get stainless steel bars next time (make sure you get the size that fits your grill because the stainless steel sizes also come a bit longer). The stainless bars are high temperature stainless steel and do not corrode. They are a bit heavier and cost about 30 to 50% more but well worth it. They clean up very easily and transfer heat to the cooking surface well. Keep them clean to keep the cooking surface hotter.

I have all new burner element, starter and thermometer,,,because I had a MAJOR fire from deteriorating fire unit Now I used grill to rotisserie a chicken, cleaned everything and when using it to grill...


When you cooked the chicken on the rotisserie, did you remove the cooking grates and place a disposable drip pan on the flame tamers below the chicken? This will prevent the grease from dripping down into the bottom of the grill when you use the rotisserie. The bottom of the unit needs to be kept clean so the grease will run to the drip pan and not get caught in the bottom of the unit. When you are done cooking, if you will close the lid and turn the grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes it will help to burn off any grease build up and prevent fires in the future.

Hi I have 4 burner gas grill capt. Cook, but only 1 burner work at a time, if I turn on any other burner all goes off.


I am guessing this is an LP grill...... it sounds like the regulator has gone bad, purchase a new regulator and hose and put it on the tank...... also, make sure you have gas in the tank.

Instruction manual


HI SIR  
When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour.
Multifunction Oven Function Selections

2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting.
3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled.
4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function.
5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 
8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting
 - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.

Advanced Oven Features

Cavity Cooling

The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off.

Triple Reflective Door Glazing

Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.

Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional)
Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.

Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional)
The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.

The Electronic Timer



Normal Baking

Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.

To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.

Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.

top


Fan Forced Baking

Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.

Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.

Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.

Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.

Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.

Grilling

Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.

This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.

Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.

Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.

Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.

Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.

As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.

Unsatisfactory grilling


You need a bigger, more powerful grill. It sounds like the one you have cannot keep up with the amount of food you want to cook. Other than making sure any controls are set on maximum, there's not much you can do about this. Return the unit for a refund.
