A problem that I have heard that happens once in a while with indoor grills such as a George Foreman grill, is that the Teflon nonstick coating will occasionally begin to peel off. This happens with heavy use in some cases, but even so, what can you do about it short of throwing the grill away? The first thing you need to know is that consuming broken-off pieces of Teflon in your foods is not healthy whatsoever. Numerous studies have shown links to cancers. So it is most likely going to be necessary to get a new grill.
Now, I have heard people say that you can still use the old grill just fine. They suggest taking aluminum foil and placing it over the grill plates and fitting it in place. Cook your food as you normally would and you will be fine. Clean-up is also a breeze because all you have to do is throw the used foil into the trash can. I haven’t tried this, but I can see how it would work if your grill is having issues with the Teflon coming off.
Handy Kitchen Things
Kitchen things such as jar openers, which enable you to better grip an item, pumping devices that remove air from containers, or jars that claim to make it easier to dispense sauces or liquids can be very helpful. There’s a huge range of gadgets to choose from. Some of the most popular kitchen things are featured on daytime tv, advertising or cooking shows. These handy utilities have proven themselves by offering competitive pricing, fantastic value, and the ability to make your work in the kitchen much easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable.
Of course, not all devices are created equal. Some aren’t worth the plastic packaging that you buy them in. Many of the more outlandish or strange devices claim to be able to do some incredible things; from peeling an egg for you to boiling it in the shape of a square, some devices just don’t quite cut it as useful kitchen things.
