We, therefore, decided to check what all the chaos is about and finally dedicate an article into reviewing the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grills for our readers.
Read through as we break down the product layer by layer so that you have the clearest picture of the real George Foreman GRP1060B. Is the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor any good? Will it make the cut? Let’s find out!
The George Foreman GRP1060B Indoor Grill in a Glance
The first thing you must know about the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill is that this isn’t your regular and tradition grill as you would have expected. The George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill is almost a press or sandwich press style. It has 2 grill plates, one on the top and one on the bottom, to press and grill your food both directions
Second, despite the manufacturer promising it to grill 4 servings at once, it is probably targeted towards small families or solo crowd like students, campers, etc. The reason we say this is because from the very moment you look at it, you know it’s small.
Either way, we don’t mind a small machine as long as it delivers what is created to deliver: grilling!
On that note, the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill offers you a modest 60 square inch cooking surface, which, like we said, isn’t large.
But yes, you could probably grill up 4 servings at once, like the manufacturer’s claims, if you cooked ¼ pound burger patties and small cuts alike. We particularly admired the deep grill ridges which make for excellent grill marks. The grill plates are non-stick and therefore aren’t going to tear and smear your grilled foods. It is also going to be heaps easier to clean since a wipe with a damp cloth is usually enough on non-stick surfaces. We did, however, receive complaints of a poor and unreliable coating that wears off easily. Nevertheless, the George Foreman GRP1060B grill furthermore offers you to remove or detach the grill plate from the unit so that you can clean it better. The plates are moreover dishwasher so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
Heat is the soul of any grill. Consequently, temperatures are going to manipulate a lot of factors including doneness, moisture, and flavor of your grilled food.
Here’s where the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill begins to go downhill. It has no thermostat, no display, and thus no temperature control. Now, we don’t know you but we like to know how hot the plates are going to get. And judging from this, we can already see users having trouble with under cooking and overcooking meats and seafood. Oh, and there’s no on and off switch buttons. You have to plug in and plug out to get it on and off. Bummer.
We must, however, give some points for its smart heating element which can cook most food in less than 10 minutes.
Well, on the bright side, the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill has a few features which somewhat, to the smallest extent, make up for its no-show team control.
First, it has indicator lights. Red is for when it is in the process of heating up and green is when it is ready for use. This feature is great for amateur cooks who need a little heads-up and guidance.
Second, the drip tray is large and spacious, and can therefore collect a good amount of fats and grease from the food. Great for heart-and-health conscious eaters. It is furthermore removable and dishwashers safe, quite like the grill plates.
Third, the hinges on the grill are adjustable to various thicknesses (up to 1 inch). This means you will be able to grill thick cuts of meat like whole chicken breasts, and loaded and packed sammiches!
And finally, the power cord is about 23 inches long which is relatively longer than what some of the more higher-end grills offers us. Short power cord is honestly one of the most annoying things with appliances, but the George Foreman GRP1060B got this.
Here’s where the George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill begins to redeem itself. It has a fantastic and very admirable design and makes.
The unit is all metal and comes to you in a glossy, sleek black body with 2 indicator lights on the top. It measures just 11 by 13 inches, and weighs just 6 pounds. Great for countertops, right? We think you could travel with it just as easily too.
You have and adjustable hinge, and a drip tray sitting at the bottom of the grill.

The George Foreman GRP1060B indoor grill has really got us having mixed feeling about it. It is a great grill, no doubt that, but it has some serious cracks. The weak coating, absence of switches, and worst of all? Having to temp control; not even high and low. On the other hand, when you compare the number of amazing features against it offers you against the ridiculously inexpensive retail price, maybe it does get away being a safe buy.
