Clean Foreman Grill with Wet Paper Towel

Clean Foreman Grill with Wet Paper Towel


TIP OF THE DAY: The easiest way to clean your Foreman grill – right after using the grill, unplug it and place a wet double-sheet of paper towel between the lid and the surface. The leftover heat causes the towel to steam and clean the grill. Then just wipe it down with a clean paper towel.


Steps for Cleaning Grills that have Non-Removal Grill Plates

Clean while the grill is still warm, before any leavings have a chance to harden.

  1. After cooking the food and unplugging the grill, keep it open for 10 to 15 minutes, allowing it to cool slightly.
  2. Place several damp paper towels onto the grill and close the lid.
  3. Let the grill sit for a few minutes and then wipe it with paper towels.
  4. It may be necessary to get more clean towels once the others get dirty.
  5. Be sure and wipe under the bottom of the grill, where drippings often sit.
  6. Use the plastic spatulas that come with the grill to scrape off any hard-to-remove foods.
  7. Avoid using harsh scrubbers on the grill, as these may damage the non-stick surface.
  8. You can also use a soapy sponge to wipe down the interior.
