Electric indoor grill and aluminum foil?

daeira | May 16, 2013 12:15 PM

I have a George Foreman type grill that has removable plates. After some heavy use, the non-stick surface has started to peel and flake away, so much so that I've not used the appliance out of fear.

I haven't been able to locate replacement grills and I feel bad just simply throwing out the appliance to buy a new one, when it's still perfectly good to use (except for the removable grills).

Is it feasible/safe to use the grills if I cover them with aluminum foil? I'm not sure of any other solution, but am open to anything you might suggest.

Ideally, I would like to find an indoor electric Forman style grill that has cast iron removable plates, but haven't found anything.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.
