Question about George Foreman G5 Indoor Grill

Open Question

Non-stick coating on lower grill plate peeling.

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.

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 :)

SOURCE: bottom plate replacment

Hi,
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.

Does anyone know how to contact these folks? The non-stick coating on the Grill started peeling off in sheets so I can use it unless I cover it with aluminum foil. I want it replaced!


Best of luck, you did not post the maker info but there is a limit on what they replace and they will say it is your fault, you cooked to hot or you did not hand wash or you used sharp objects (utensils)

They are peeling inside. Only had 3 years. What do I do?


bakers use black steel trays in which to bake bread
they are only covered in butter to stop sticking so if you follow the same procedure it will be alright
the covering that is coming off is probably the non-stick teflon coating which medical evidence proves not to be good for us as it breaks down with heat and age and is basic carcinogenic in nature
Look at all your old non stick pans and ask yourself , where did all the covering go?

Peeling nonstick coating


It can't be fixed. In the future, use only plastic cooking utensils so they won't scratch off the non stick coating. You can line the pan with foil if it is a baking pan, if it's a frying pan, there's no fixing it.

Nonstick coming off


No, the Teflon Coating is applied when the plates are red hot during manufacture

Need to restore the non-stick surface on a GE griddle


Put a sheet of wax paper between the two plates for a few minutes while it heats up, then remove. It will transfer the wax to the grill so you'll temporarily restore the non-stick coating.

Hi Sunlark,

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.

Non-stick peeling off


You should get in touch with the manufacture service rep, or directly in touch with them to find out how to order spare parts.

I found that with Tephlon coatings, after some time they all start to peel and not perform very well.
