The best time to clean a George Foreman grill is when it is still hot after you have finished making a meal. The relatively high temperature of the grill will make it a lot easier to remove grease and leftover food particles. Establish a risk free environment by removing the power cable of the grill from the power source. Put a wet paper towel on the grill and properly close the grill.
You will have to allow at least 30 minutes before you start to clean the grill. During this time, you can either enjoy the meal that you just made or you can take care of a pending chore. After 30 minutes, open the grill and use the wet paper towel which you placed in the grill to wipe down the grill.
A specialised sponge set is also available which you can purchase to clean a George Foreman grill. There are a number of stores which sell this sponge set. Target or Bed, Bath and Beyond are two possible stores from where you can purchase a George Foreman grill sponge set. Use warm water and dish soap in tandem with the George Foreman grill sponge set to clean the grill.
Leftover food particles which are difficult to remove can be taken care of with a plastic spatula. This spatula comes with a George Foreman grill. Cleaning the grill while it is still warm will make it a lot easier to remove hard-to-remove food particles.
After you have cleaned the grill, dry it with clean paper towels. Let the grill air dry completely before closing it.
