Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill
About 3" of the non-stick coating on one channel of my lower G5 grill plate is peeling off. I called the GF Customer Support and was told that this wasn't covered under the one-year warranty. I was assured that this shouldn't affect the grill performance --- unless you include food sticking to the plate as performance! Lower grill plates apparently have been an on-going problem with this model, because I was also told that replacement plates are back-ordered and presently unavailable.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Contact these guys and they should be able to supply replacement grill plates cheaply; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus In general the current view is that low quality aluminium alloys, when used for cooking can put enough aluminium into the food over a long period of time to POSSIBLY influence certain conditions such as alzheimers disease, amongst others. There is a certain amount of aluminium in many things we eat or drink, regardless of what it is cooked in. If you use the grill every day then i would recommend replacing the plates, especially if the aluminium itself is becoming pitted, however I have used similar, lower quality grills before with coating worn and haven't gone mad yet. If in any doubt then replace the plates, but i think you are being over cautious here. If you find that food is now sticking to the grill, try grilling half a handful of salt with a little vegetable oil for 10 minutes or so, spread over the whole plate - a certain amount of "non-stick" can be achieved like this, although if cleaning the plates with detergent, this will soon need doing again. Hope this helps :)

theres lots of posts here regarding george foreman products.
there does,nt seem to be anywhere to buy replacement parts.
I,d suggest buying a new alternative product, with a more stable background, and reliable service and replacement parts. i.e russel hobbs or tefal et,c.
