George Foreman Hot Zone griddle - Any opinions?

Recently I've been messing around with making chicken teriyaki on an electric griddle, and I've been finding that there just doesn't seem to be enough heat to get everything cooked the way I like it (it's still better than trying to cook on the stove though.) While browsing in the store today I came across the George Foreman Hot Zone griddle, which mostlyu acts like a regular electric griddle, but has a "hot zone" that can be activated to allow for 500-degree searing as needed. I'm curious if anyone here has tried one of these, and what they think of it.

  1. I don't own a George Foreman Hot Zone griddle. Here's a review of electric griddles by Cook's Illustrated. Unfortunately they didn't review the George Foreman Hot Zone griddle.
