According to a majority of customers, the George Foreman GRP4842P Multi-Plate Evolve Grill is a responsive grill that goes above and beyond what an everyday waffle maker was designed to do. However, to give customers a chance to weigh their options, we compared it to three similar appliances.

George Foreman Waffle Maker vs Cuisinart Griddler

The first product we looked at was the Cuisinart GR-11 Griddler 3-in-1 Grill and Panini Press. Available with a brushed stainless steel casing, this advanced waffle maker is large enough to cook a wide variety of meals such as sandwiches, paninis, chicken, or waffles. It actually comes with preset settings that enable you to easily grill sandwiches, burgers, and steaks.

When it comes to the design, the Cuisinart Griddler has adjustable floating hinges that allow you to bake or cook large waffles, sandwiches, or paninis to suit your entire family.

Available with removable plates, indicator LED lights, and a recipe booklet, this multi-purpose waffle maker is a perfect solution for families that enjoy cooking a wide array of meals not only to kick-start their day, but also for lunch or dinner.

George Foreman Grill vs 4 in 1 Sandwich Waffle Burger and Donut Maker

The second product we reviewed was the ZZ S6142A 4 in 1 Sandwich Waffle Burger and Donut Maker with 4 Sets of Detachable Non-stick Plates. Available with a set of four different heating plates, this unit is capable of baking waffles and cooking donuts, sandwiches, and burgers.

The baking plates are non-stick and easy to clean, and the temperature control settings ensure that your meals are cooked to perfection. Available with a light weight of 6.3 pounds and dimensions of 9×10×6 inches, this waffle maker is among the best units on the market today.

T Fal Optigrill vs George Foreman Grill

The third kitchen appliance we’re comparing here is the T-fal OptiGrill Electric Grill. This is also a multi functional kitchen appliance and like the Foreman Evolve Grill, it has a TON of features.

The OptiGrill has nonstick removable plates, six automatic cooking programs (allowing you to set it and forget it), a large cooking area, dishwasher safe plates and drip tray, and the coolest feature of them all is the ability to use a setting specifically for frozen food.

interestingly enough, it comes in two sizes, regular and extra large. This is a high quality kitchen appliance that can replace your grill, but can it make waffles?


After comparing these three versatile kitchen appliances, we found that the George Foreman GRP4842P Evolve Grill was the winner.

Available at an affordable price, this versatile waffle maker comes with ceramic-coated removable grilling plates, a temperature range of 300-500°F, and multiple stylish colors for customers to choose from.

Designed to cook a wide variety of meals such as waffles, chicken, and sandwiches, the George Foreman Evolve Grill is perfect for customers looking for quality and performance.

In second is the Cuisinart GR-11 Griddler 3-in-1. Another big name, this waffle maker has the ability to cook and bake a variety of meals such as waffles, burgers, sandwiches, and steaks.

This waffle maker also has non-stick removable plates, LED indicator lights, and floating hinges to make it easier for you to cook without facing any interference. Also available at an affordable price, this waffle maker is a good choice for customers looking for a budget multi-purpose waffle maker.

Next was the T-fal Optigrill Electric Grill. This is a beast of a machine and may be the best indoor grill on the market. However, it doesn’t have the variety of plates that the Foreman has available, such as Waffle plates, and it’s plates are not nonstick ceramic.

In last is the ZZ S6141A-B 4 in 1 Breakfast Waffle Omelette and Sandwich Maker. Though small, this waffle maker has a lot of smart features to offer to all waffle lovers.

It has four detachable heating plates that allow you to cook burgers, donuts, waffles, and sandwiches in a very short time. The power and preheat features are perfect, and the non-stick removable plates make it very easy for you to clean this unit.

Available at an affordable price, this waffle maker is a good alternative for customers looking for a light and compact multi-purpose waffle maker.

There may be other waffle makers that are cheaper than the George Foreman Multi-Plate Evolve Grill, but none other can boast the features it has while ensuring the quality that the George Foreman brand brings.
