Manual for GFSG80 is not available for download, here is manual for GFG270 that is nearly the same.

If you want a manual for the exact model you need to contact Salton that manufactures George's grills.

I can do better than that here you go look at this.What have I personally prepared on my George Foreman grill?

Hot Dogs
Boneless Pork Loins
Country Style Ribs
Boneless Chicken Breast
Bone in Chicken Thighs
Bone in Chicken Breasts
Chicken Legs
Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwhiches
Italian Sausage along with Green Peppers and Onions

This unit has a floating hinge which allows me to cook thicker cuts of meat and they cook evenly.

I even use it to reheat the meat leftover from the day before, it heats them quickly and sears in the flavor without drying the meat out. I prefer reheating with my grill over microwaving.

One day last summer I was in the middle of cooking BBQ Chicken on my Charcoal Grill. We were having a family outing and out of the clear blue sky it just started to rain... Well I had no choice but to finish cooking all the chicken i had started on my handy little George Foreman grill. This took a little time because the amounts of chicken I had on the grill and could only fit just a few pieces at a time. but it was a lifesaver... saved our picnic. Which gave me the idea to precook the chicken on my George Foreman Grill then finish cooking it over Charcoal. I found using this method takes alot of time away from having to stand by the grill basting and turning. All in all, to me it seems that within 30 mins the Chicken is fully cooked compared to anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and your still guessing and cutting into the meat to see if its done.

The Champ also supplies you with some of his famous grilling recipes which I have not yet tried because I have my own way of seasoning my foods. Although they sound delicious!

Here are some examples of his suggested Cooking Chart for this Grill: Cooked Medium (160 F) to give you an Idea as to how quickly it does cook.

Salmon Filet 3 minutes
Salmon Steaks 6 minutes
White Fish 5 minutes
8 oz Turkey burgers 6 minutes
8 oz Hamburgers 9 minutes
Chicken Breasts 9 minutes
NY Strip Steak 7 minutes
Pork loins 5 minutes

Is there anything you found you didnt like?

Yes,one thing I must admit is I do not like is the fact it does not have a shut off switch.

I've learned that if you wait until the light on the unit is OFF then you are less likely to see a SPARK when you unplug the unit after use.

Back to the Positive and another important fact. Time to clean up is really a Breeze. I allow it to cool then I use the plastic spatula to scrap away any excess fat or food then I wipe with a damp paper towel. Toss away paper towel full of grease and grime and go over it a clean damp cloth, wash the tray and spatula and its ready to be put away.
