What Is The Difference Between the George Foreman Evolve and Farberware Grill?
The George Foreman Evolve 4 in 1 grill is far more advanced than the Farberware grill, which is a rather basic grill.
One of best features of the George Foreman Evolve is the fact that it bakes in addition to grilling. So you can prepare things like cupcakes or cookies, or use the deep dish to bake different foods.
On the George Foreman Evolve, the grill plates are ceramic coated and NOT Teflon like other brands. This makes a lot of difference to many people who don’t appreciate teflon near their food.
When it comes to controls, the Farberware has the basic knob controls, while the George Foreman uses a digital control that allows you to adjust the temperature and set a cooking time. There’s also a Sear button on the George Foreman Evolve that will quickly heat the grill up to 500-degrees.
The included plates with the George Foreman are grill plates, deep dish/griddle plates and cupcake pan. The Farberware includes grill plates and griddle plates.
The George Foreman has a patented slope, angle adjustable design that allows you to tilt the grill up. This is useful to drain more fat off your meats and keep it off the plates. George Foreman grills are known for their fat-reducing feature.
- The George Foreman has these additional plates that you can purchase separately: Omelet plates, shallow dish plates, waffle plates, mini burger and sliders plate.
- The Farberware Grill doesn’t have an additional plates that can be purchased.
