Ever since George Foreman first taught us how to "knock out the fat" by letting the grease run off, I've been looking for a better way to grill and griddle. These cooking methods are quick, easy, and healthy, but the problem back in the day -- other than the lack of removable plates for easy cleanup -- was that the health gains from siphoning off the fat were negated by using a Teflon cooking surface.
While great strides have been made to offer consumers choices in eco-friendly pans for the stove top, electric cookware has unfortunately not kept pace with the green revolution.
Nevertheless, I found a few PFOA and PTFE free electrics to choose from in the quest to live green and eliminate Teflon and toxic cookware from the kitchen, including this first model from Hamilton Beach.
Yes, the eco-conscious among us already know that we should be conserving our natural resources and taking care of the environment we live in, and we don't need a cookie as incentive.
But, as long as you're recycling anyway, you might as well enjoy a reward for it. And it might be just the thing you need to get hubby, the surly teenagers, or the neighbor who always throws bottles in the trash on board.
