The George Foreman Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine, commonly known as the George Foreman Grill, is an indoor, electrically-heated grill manufactured by Salton, Inc. George Foreman, a former champion boxer, is the main spokesperson for the grill. Since its introduction in 1994, over 80 million Foreman grills have been sold.[1]


Foreman has made over 150 million dollars from the sales of his grills, an amount that is more than he earned as a boxer.[1]

The company has created many different sizes and designs for the grill since it was first made. These include "The Champ" which was the first grill produced, a family size grill, and a "Super Large" grill that has 144 inches of grilling space.[2] There is also a deep fryer[3] and roaster.[4]

A website made an April Fools' Day joke by claiming to sell a USB version of the grill called the "iGrill."[5][6] The fake product was advertised as a grill that can be plugged into a computer and turned on by someone on the Internet.
