well I was finally let down by ol' George, One of My grills stopped working. It was the $100 variety and I olny had it 2 years. After taking it apart, the problem turned out to be a $1.50 thermal fuse. I wonder how many grills were thrown away or taken to a rapairman for a simple and cheap fix. It works great now but I am wary of the craftsmanship of the grills now. I bought extra fuses just in case.

I trust Zorro, that you do not use this item for anything so pedestrian as food preparation....

I wouldn't trust anything endorsed by a man who named all of his sons george.

I wanted one some time ago, but the dyslexic sales assistant gave me a George Formby grill instead. It's no good for cooking - it just sits there and goes "Ooh - it turned out right nice again, eh, Mrs?"

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

You'd be surprised to know that Foresk... IS actually someone's LAST NAME!

Edit: Sorry for being such a dickhead, in my rush to tell everyone about that, I missed the puns.

Now imagine if Pitr Dubovich did one.

It would be the "Pitr Dubovich Lean, Mean, Necro posting machine"

For fuck sake man, quit waking these old threads up.

Could you share what the thermal rating was on the fuse (or possibly the radio shack part number). The same thing has happened to mind but the numbers on the fuse are not legible any longer.
