Top 5 Best Electric Grills – affordable indoor health grills

I have always been tempted by one of these, some how the shape of these electric grill although small, reminds me of the full size gas/charcoal fired grill. The only difference is, with one of these you can use them indoor and store it away easily when finish.

And for those of you who are still working out in your head, trying to justify getting one of these to add to your kitchen, here are some pretty good reasons to have them.

Why Electric Contact Grills

There are many good reasons for getting an electric grill:

  • healthier as the grill reduces the fat in the meat during cooking
  • food cook faster as heat is applied from both top and bottom grill cooking both sides of the food simultaneously
  • drip tray to capture all the unwanted fat and grease
  • do not require cooking oil, as fat from the meat will cook and seal in the juices
  • will not splatted as the cover is kept shut during cooking
  • convenient with non stick surface
  • some grills let you operate it as an open grill with handles on the top cover that doubles as a stand when opened flat
  • most grills are designed to stand vertically for space saving and ease of storage
