George Foreman Grills
George Foreman may have made his name for himself in the past as a world famous heavyweight boxer, but it is for his range of cooking utensils and appliances for which is probably more widely known. When he started putting his name to George Foreman grills it was with the aim of giving Americans (and people from all over the world) a quick and easy way to cook things healthily.
It not only takes minutes to grill a chicken breasts of piece of steak on one of these convenient grills, but because of its design of ridges and a drip tray, the excess fat leaves the meat as it cooks and pours down away from the meat. This improves the taste as well as making it better for you. Nowadays, there is a wide range of George Foreman grills in different shapes and sizes, so you will easily find one that suits the needs of you and your household.
Although many people continue to debate whether having a microwave is actually the healthiest way to prepare and cook meals. However, there is no denying how quick and easy microwaves make things. There are affordable microwaves from TJ Hughes which now come in a range of different capacities, styles and colours. Some microwaves have lots of different extra, programmable options and even include additional features as mini grills and ovens for when you need to cook something a little bit more substantial than a baked potato or tin of baked beans. Most microwaves as a default have some kind of defrost functionality, which is also handy if you forget to get something out of the freezer the night before.
With these kinds of appliances, I find that although you could rely on them for a number of days for the majority of your meals and you would still be eating healthily; it is not advisable over a long period of time. The way that most people get the absolute best out of these appliances is to use them in conjunction with other appliances such as ovens, hobs etc., so that they get the best of both worlds.
For example, you would probably avoid cooking a whole chicken in the microwave, but if you are short on time, you could pop the chicken in the oven, while you cook your veggies on your hob and some jacket potatoes in the microwave. By doing things in this manner it means that you are not relying on one appliance to do everything, but using each device in the best way.
