Hi there wave - I'm looking to buy an electric grill/BBQ - considered the George Foreman BBQ but when it arrived it was HUGE confused3 so I sent it back as it was too big to pack away in our Nuevo. Now considering the George Foreman grill/griddle - would be grateful for any input allthumbz

We use our electric BBQ a lot when away at home but on our current trip in France notice many sites don't allow them as they overload their supply - which tend to be less generous than we have in UK.

What Steve said, plus the fact that they don't work on gas.  shrugg  Whistle1

It depends a lot on your mode of camping I suppose, but if you spend much time off hookup you might be better off with one of these . . .

Thanks Steve - we stay on a lot of French sites and yes, some of their electricity supplies are on the low side(3amp/5amp) but at 10amp their electrics are ok and will stand my Remoska (an invaluable item) and the electric ring in the Nuevo being on at the same time. We do have a gas picnic stove (thanks for that Dave) - another invaluable item for using outdoors but I'm thinking that an electric grill would replace our Weber Smokey Joe charcoal BBQ which, although fun, is still a little too large for just the two of us. The electric grill would have that BBQ feel to it and would keep 'him indoors' happy with his chef's 'alf.

Put "Electric Frying Pan" into the Amazon search panel, and take your pick. smile!

A lot of them are basically the same (electrically) under the skin. Look at the plug-in thermostat, which gives the game away as it's identical on many of them.

I think the more expensive ones have better pans, often with lids, and better non-stick coating. We had a very cheap one (about £18) which was great for a time, but then the teflon coating began to come off - although we always used a wooden spatula. Depending on what you fancy, it could make sense to get the cheapest and regard it as disposable after a year or two - then get a new one.

Hi

We have used the Foreman grill for a number of years now, and it is very functional.       We also have the canister one as shown and again very functional solve the non electric sights.

Hi Everyone - and thanks to everyone who responded re my query re electric grills/griddles. After much faffing (and fossicking as Boris is so fond of saying) I did today purchase a George Forman Entertainment Grill/griddle - I figured it would be perfect both 'Home and Away'. Time will tell!
Thanks everyone - happy motorhoming!
