Tip: Cleaning Your Foreman Grill
I usually avoid using the Foreman Grill my husband acquired as a Christmas gift during his bachelor days, because I found it frustrating to clean. The components are not removeable so given that its an electrical appliance I always feared having it anywhere near the sink, even if it was unplugged.
However, last night I was desperate. I had been marinating a lovely platter of pork chops to grill for dinner all day but the weather refused to cooperate. It didn't feel right to send my husband out to cook them up on the BBQ while wearing galoshes and holding an umbrella after he'd already been working long hours standing on his feet at work.
So out came the grill.
Thankfully, I received a tip on how to clean it that had me curious as to whether or no it would work. I was actually excited to make my dinner using it. The Lavender Rosemary Pork Chops turned out great! (I'll share the recipe soon!)
After I had unplugged the grill, and was ready to sit down to eat, I followed the directions shared with me.
I stacked 4 or 5 paper towels together, then soaked them with water. I gently squeezed out the water, and placed the stack on top of the open grill, being sure to cover the entire surface (see photo on the right hand side of this page).
I closed the lid, and went to enjoy my dinner.
About 45-60 minutes later I opened the grill back up, and wiped the grill with the damp paper towels. The residue came off so easily. I used a couple more dry paper towels to wipe everything spotless and minutes later I had a grill that was as clean as the day it was first opened up from the box.
It really was that easy and now I'm ready for any rainy day grilling in my future!
