The best grills available out there usually cost much more than 100 bucks. But what if we said you could get a tiny part of that for below $30? Well, the George Foreman Electric Grill seems to have achieved that feat. With how good it is, this grill has a real potential to be the best electric grill below $30.

Why We Like It – George Foreman Electric Grill GR0040B

Unlike huge outdoor grills, the George Foreman Electric Grill GR0040B is a fantastic foray into the electric grills market. George Foreman grills are already top rated for their value proposition. And this George Foreman Indoor Outdoor Electric Grill is no different.

  • Grease and fat removing drip tray design
  • Dishwasher safe removable grill drip tray
  • Non-stick cooking surface
  • Temperature control could’ve been better

Power & Heating

This George Foreman Indoor Outdoor Grill comes with a 700 Watt heating element. Compared to something like the Weber Q1400, that number might sound way too low, but you can’t really complain much at this price point. But the temperature controls and the max temperature are more or less disappointing.

Size & Versatility

The manufacturer Spectrum Brands advertises this George Foreman grill as a “2-Serving Indoor Outdoor Electric Grill.” But, to be very honest, the 36 square inch cooking surface is a bit too low to accommodate two people. Even the Zojirushi Indoor Grill has a somewhat bigger grill surface (200 square inches).

The overall build quality of this grill is absolutely fantastic for the price. The non stick coating doesn’t wash off easily if you clean it using a detergent. And the drip tray is removable & dishwasher safe at the same time.

Ease Of Use

Even if you’ve never used a grill before, you should have no trouble getting started with this Indoor Outdoor grill. In fact, it is so small that, unlike their own George Foreman Electric Grill GGR50B, it doesn’t need any grill stand. It can easily fit on a narrow kitchen countertop.


For just 20 bucks, you can go for the George Foreman Electric Grill with your eyes closed. Cheap Indoor Outdoor grills really don’t get any better than this one, and spending more on a different brand for something similar would honestly be wasting money.

George Foreman Electric Grill GR0040B Wrap Up

The George Foreman Electric Grill GR0040B is a top-notch Indoor Outdoor grill overall. It’s the ideal cooking grill & panini press combo for a beginner who is just getting started with grills. But, if you’re already a veteran grill user, the Weber Q2400 would be a way better choice.
