How To Use

George Foreman’s Lean Mean

Fat Reducing Grilling Machine

1. Before using the Grilling Machine for the first time or if stored

away for a long time, wipe the Grilling Plates with a damp cloth

to remove all dust.


To preheat:

Wipe the grill plates with a little cooking oil or butter.

Do not use low fat spread - it may burn the grill. Close the Lid

and plug cord into a 230-240V AC power outlet. The Indicator

LED light will go on and the grilling plates will begin heating. At

the same time the timer display will show a "5", indicating the

start of the 5 minute pre-heat countdown. When the countdown

is completed the unit will beep. The Timer Display will show "on"

as a reminder that the power is still on.

3. Use a "pot holder" to carefully open the Lid.
4. Slide the grease catching Drip Tray under the front of the unit.
5. With a spatula or tongs carefully place the items to be cooked on

the bottom grilling plate.

6. Close the Lid. The hinge will be articulated. 


The Grill plates

should be roughly parallel to avoid uneven cooking. The hinge

has a ‘floating’ design for even cooking, please do not think this

is a faulty hinge. Press the Timer Up Button to set the desired

grilling time. The Timer Display will show the set time. To adjust

the Timer down, simply press the Timer Down Button. The timer

can be set to a maximum of 20 minutes.  Cooking times depend

on type, thickness and volume of food.

7. The Variable Temperature Control allows you to cook your food

at a specific heat setting (Minimum, Medium, or Maximum). 
Adjust the Variable Temperature Control to your desired setting.

See "Suggested Cooking Chart" on following page for specific


8. Allow the food to cook for the desired time. (Consult the Recipe

Section at the back of this book for some suggestions.) 

Do not

leave appliance unattended during use!

During grilling, the Timer Display will begin counting down.

When the set time has elapsed the unit will beep. 


The heat continues to be "on" until the appliance is


So if you leave food on the grill after the set time

has elapsed, it will continue being cooked.

9. After the desired amount of time, the food should be done.

Check, if in doubt cook it a bit more.

10. Slide temperature control to "MIN". Disconnect the plug from

the wall outlet. 

Note:  Some sparks may be visible while

disconnecting from wall outlet. This is quite normal.

11. Use a "pot holder" to carefully open the Lid.
12. Remove the food using the Plastic Spatula provided. Be sure to

always use either plastic or wooden utensils so as not to

scratch the non-stick surface. Never use metal tongs, forks or

knives as these can damage the coating on the grilling plates.

13. When cool, the Drip Tray may be removed and emptied. 


sure the liquid is cooled before removing Drip Tray.

The following times are meant to be used as guidelines only. Times will vary due to the cut
or thickness of the meat being cooked. To be sure that the food is truly done, use a
cooking thermometer. If the food does need more time to cook, reset the timer and check
periodically so you do not overcook.

For all recipes, please remember to place Drip Tray in

front of the Grilling Machine to catch drippings from the cooking



Serves 4

A flavorful hamburger that we think tastes even better than its all-

meat cousin! It pays to eat meals that minimize meat. To reduce

saturated fat in a typical burger, you can cut back on the amount

of meat and make up for it with plant-based ingredients. Bread

crumbs and chopped vegetables have been added in this recipe.

You could also try cooked rice, other grains or cereal. In addition,

choose whole wheat buns; they typically contain one less fat

gram than regular or even reduced-calorie buns.
If you settle for nothing less than a cheeseburger, Swiss cheese 

is 1 gram lower in fat than Cheddar, American or Monterey Jack

with 8 grams of fat versus 9 in each ounce (30 grams) of cheese.

However, reduced fat cheeses like Cheddar or Swiss contain half

the fat with 4 grams fat per ounce (30 grams). Mustard contains 1

gram of fat per tablespoon versus a whopping 11 grams of fat in a

tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Top your burger in healthful style with dark, leafy green lettuce,

shredded cabbage, fresh coriander, basil or spinach.
1/4 cup very finely chopped vegetables such as spring onions,

zucchini, red or green capsicum or carrot

1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs

2 TB chopped parsley or mixed herbs

750gr lean minced steak

In a medium sized bowl combine chopped vegetables, herbs and

breadcrumbs. Add the minced steak and mix well, using hands.

Shape the mixture into four large patties.
