Reader Liz sent us the following solution for storing the removable plates and body of her George Foreman Grill:
I got the wonderful George Foreman grill with the changeable plates for Christmas two years ago. I have since been struggling with how to store the 5 grill plates since they don’t stack conveniently and can get easily scratched. I live in an apartment, so storage space is hard to come by. After several disappointing online searches, I decided to create my own [storage solution]. I used a vertical, metal file sorter (similar to this one) placed on top of a metal, mesh shelf so I can store my Foreman grill underneath the plates. The file sorter that is holding the grill plates is coated in plastic so it won’t scratch the plates, which is vital! It is sitting on a re-purposed cooling rack, which is just the right height and width to allow the actual Foreman grill to be stored beneath it.
In addition to being a great solution for a George Foreman Grill, it would be wonderful for waffle iron plates, lids for reusable storage containers, lids for pots and pans, and even baking pans and cookie sheets. Thank you for such a terrific suggestion, Liz!
