Aluminum Foil on the Foreman?

Thread title says it all. Can I use aluminum foil on a George Foreman grill without it melting or anything unpleasant? The one I've got it ancient and needs to be replaced, but in the meantime I'd like to be able to use it without EVERYTHING EVER sticking to it (it doesn't have the removeable plates and is almost a decade old, so you can imagine the condition it's in).

Thanks in advance!

    Yes you can. The foil may act as a heatsink causing longer cooking times.

    aluminum foil is really made out of just aluminum which has a melting point of about 1200F....

    so yeah, there won't be any problems with melting the foil.

    It's a fairly common way of cooking veggies on a grill, you package them together with some oil, garlic and onions in aluminum foil and you've got a nice side dish to the meat. I do it all the time without messing stuff up on my grill.

    Foil can be fairly scratchy, so you don't normally want to use it on a non-stick grill, but if the non-sticky-ness of your grill is already gone, it's all good.
