The use of the best charcoal grill smoker for the money is very convenient because it is easily installed on a table, in the balcony or even in the garden, depending on the model. It is compact, easy to store, allows quick cooking of meat and does not generate coal smoke.
How to choose a quality electric grill?
Like any other electric cooking appliance, the higher the grilling power, the faster and more efficiently it cooks food.
Thus, we do not recommend electric barbecues of less than 1000 watts that are much less efficient, provided they have a lid to conserve heat. In general, electric grills from 1500 watts to 2000 watts will provide optimal cooking, although some appliances even have a power of more than 3000 watts.
The best thing is that your grill machine is also equipped with a thermostat, so you can gauge its power according to the food to grill. However, there are models of barbecues with automatic programs that allow ideal cooking of red meats, fish, sausages, poultry, hamburgers, paninis and others.
The plate is the part on which the food to be grilled is placed. And in addition to simple grill models for grilling, most indoor electric barbecues today are equipped with several types of plates that can adapt to all sorts of ingredients, even the most delicate.
Thus, to vary your preparations, we advise you to opt for a multi-purpose cooking plate that offers several positions, namely a grill for meat, a grill for croque-monsieur, paninis, sandwiches and others.
It would also be best to opt for a full or semi-perforated baking sheet that can be converted into plancha to capture vegetables and meats. In addition, prefer a plate with a coating of cast aluminum or stainless steel, because these materials are significantly more resistant to heat. Side capacity, note that an electric grill for 8 people and more requires a size of 1000 cm², or 40 cm x 25 cm.
Cleaning your electric barbecue is one of the main things to consider when making your choice. In fact, grilling appliances that are easy to clean are generally those equipped with removable accessories.
We, therefore, recommend that you move towards a removable plate grill, and better still: removable elements that pass safely in the dishwasher. In this way, not only will your tools regain their original appearance, but you will also save valuable time for cleaning.
It is also essential that the device has a removable grease trap, always from the point of view of maintenance. In this case, make sure that the tray can hold water so that you can empty it and wash it easily.
Why buy an electric grill?
The practicality of a small barbecue
Indoor electric barbecues are the perfect answer to the needs of grill lovers who do not necessarily have a garden.
Ideal for evenings with family or friends, the electric grill does not take an important place for its installation. Just place it on a table for models to ask, or in the balcony for models on feet.
It allows enjoying a pleasant moment in the apartment where everyone is gathered around a delicious raclette dish. And once the evening is over, the tool can easily be stored in the cupboard so as not to clutter up our work plan or our small balcony.
Grilled meats are preparations that do not require the use of a large amount of oil, unlike food that is caught on a pan.
Here, you do not need oil or butter to taste tasty grilled seafood, merguez, hamburgers and paninis.
In addition, the electric grill is also one of the cleanest cooking appliances since it does not pollute the environment. Unlike charcoal barbecues, which often suffocate those around them with thick black smoke, a quality electric grilling machine generates only the good smell of grilled meats. And with a barbecue lid, it’s even better, because the device does not let out cooking smoke and avoids the splashing of fat and food debris.
