Bye Bye Georgie Boy

My George Foreman grill just died. It’s been such a handy thing – although I know I’ve never used it to it’s full capacity, but whenever I wanted steaks or sausages or burgers or anything meaty it was there for me. Five years it’s done me and tonight when I plugged it in it the fuse switch tripped. I shut down a few outlets and flipped the switch back, but sure enough it did it again. I’ll probably open it up on the weekend and see if I can see any reason for the short.

But this gets me thinking – is 5 years a good time for a kitchen appliance? How long would you expect you expect to get out of an appliance if you use it every other week?

Tell me what you think
