Months ago I saw Rachel Ray using a “grill pan” to cook burgers on her in studio stove. I thought it was a cool idea, but then I thought nothing could beat my beloved George Foreman.
Then tragedy struck…. my George Foreman died.
After proper mourning I headed to Amazon to look into getting either a new George Foreman or try out a Grill Pan. I ended up getting the latter and I absolutely could not be happier.

Part of “Eating Clean” is adding as little as possible to whole foods. My diet consists of all meats, fruits, vegetables, and nuts – which can get boring after a while if you do not change it up from time to time. With my Grill Pan I put just a bit of cooking spray on the pan, and a bit of dry seasoning to my meats and grill – just like I do on my outside grill! For veggies I do the same thing – only with no seasonings at all – and it tastes just exactly like I slaved over a grill.
We use the Cuisinart Grill Pan almost daily for lunch. It is so easy for Mike and I to throw on a chicken breast and some veggies and in 10-12 minutes have a healthy, tasty, economical lunch for us both. And in a quarter of the time it would take us to go out, and half the time to fire up the big outdoor grill. It is large enough for me to cook a meal for all four of us as well, which is nice, and clean up is a breeze – I just pop it right into the dishwasher.
I absolutely love this thing and have cooked chicken, steak, fish, veggies – and even a London Broil on this thing. It cooks up perfectly and I never have to walk outside. Between the Grill Pan and my Westbend Food Steamer, Eating Clean is not only easy, but incredibly tasty!
