Dad can use this nonstick grill both indoors and outdoors. Its capacity makes the George Foreman perfect for grilled meal prep, big parties, or just cooking for family. Because it’s nonstick, you won’t get a char on your food and thus, no carcinogens! We think it’s especially nice for apartments, so if your papa bear lives in the city, he’ll love being able to whip up some kielbasa at home rather than ordering takeout again!
