    I never thought I would buy one of these things, but I love it!

    Anyone else have one?

    Hmm, a number of inches thick, heavy, requires a handle to cart around, able to toast a sandwich or grill a steak in minutes?

    OMG iGary!! You've got a G5 PowerBook!!!

    Yeah, kind of - and coming right up. :D

    It has 5 interchangeable grill inserts so you can make waffles (we tried - very good) grill chicken breasts (my lunch today) or grill sandwiches or whatever.

    I always thought it was a bunch of BS - but it works great.

    The nice thing is that, as an experienced PowerBook user, you'll be able to grill food directly on your lap, as the George Foreman G5 is likely to be a bit cooler.

    Edit: never mind... too slow (by a minute) with the joke....

    On the serious side, I've found that lining the drip trays with aluminum foil makes cleanup much, much easier.

    The novelty will wear off, and then it will join the ice-cream maker and get-fit videos under the stairs. :p

    Yeah, that's under the stairs with the workout videos. :eek:

    Rob's a sucker for infommercials, which is odd considering he has two masters. :-/

    OK, not sure about how that whole "dominance" thing works, but, assuming you're one of the masters, who is the other?

    As a serious question, where did you get it? Also, how does it compare with the Foreman? We have the Foreman, but I have been itching to get a waffle iron. It would be great to have a G5 waffle with a MagicBullet smoothie (we got one for our wedding...another great product).

    Having both in one convenient package just seems too incredible! It this thing is a good price and really works (which it sounds like it does), thay have their blurb, maybe they can send me one for free.

    Rob got it at Target.

    It has, I think, five different grill inserts. It is way more "heavy duty" (I hate that term) that the Foreman, and much more powerful in terms of heat and heat-up time.

    It makes awesome waffles. :)

    can you ACTUALLY grill steaks on this, and if so, two good size steaks at the same time? If so, I'm down with getting one!

    I just moved back in with my roommate and she got a George Foreman grill while I was gone...It's GREAT!

    They seem really cheesy and like something you'll never use, but once you start using it your like "damn, this things useful as hell"

    I was going to ask you if it was a Quad G5, but it appears that it's a Quint G5! :eek:

    Do you have to put memory modules, erm, cutlets, in that thing in pairs, or can you put them in onesies? :eek: ;) :D

    P.S. Yes, it is actually pretty good for steak, back from my omnivorous days...one of the really nice things is that you can do a pepper rub, and almost all of the pepper will stay on the meat, instead of getting cast off into the nether regions of the grill. :)

    I think, when you can cook a steak on it, it's running a little hot. Need a temperature widget to really know for sure, but I think. :eek:

    Hmm....looking at the salton website, I'm wondering if it is a good purchase for me. I already have a griddle, 12" toaster oven (B&D upgraded our 9" when it broke under warranty, no questions asked), and an old school Foreman.

    Is it worth the approx. $129?
