Xpress ready set go

For months my kids bugged me for ready set go cooker. I told them no way I was going to pay that kind of shipping. The shipping was more then the unit it self. Then one day I came across it in a store, for a good price. Now I am wondering if I got a bad, or if it is faults advertizing. Cooking time, at least on mine, is at least twice as long as it is suppose. Is mine defective, or is that the way they are. The first night I had it, I tried to make a omlet. After 10 minutes, I scrapped in the garbage, and got out a frying pan.

Only got 2 1/2 stars on Amazon. This is not a very good rating nor are the reviews very good. As with some appliances, you might have to test to see what works in them. However, I have a feeling that is just the way they are.

I went to their website. 2 easy payments of $19.95. I like my George Foreman better. In the advertisement the lady at the bottom doesn't look like she pushed back from the table often enough so how healthy is it?
I use a Waring belgium waffle maker. Love it!! They break every year almost to the date printed on the bottom of the unit. Waring replaces them without question, but, gee, wouldn't you think some engineer would notice you put heating elements adjacent to plastic parts that are only held together with metal screws, something has to give???? It's our "throw away" society, I guess.

I got a waffle maker, I bought it from sears. My parents had the same one for many years, used at least once a week, and more when we would flip the plates and make grill cheese. I guess you get what you pay for. I love it for burgers, you don't need to flip the burgers, and the grease runs out the side spout. Just don't forget to put something under it. I just wish the xpress work as advertized.

I'll say....doesn't he have like 4 lil Georges?

Seriously, I have one and it works fine. I use it mostly in the winter when I don't feel like firing up the weber. Although a bit of a pain to clean between the grooves I think it is well worth the money.

We bought the B&D version of the George Foreman grill over 5 yrs ago and it works great. I don't remember the price but it was significantly cheaper
