There is nothing better than having a nice steak or cut of chicken cooked on the grill outside during the summer months. You spend a few hours outside cooking, setting up, dressing up your meat, maybe having a beer or a cigar, the whole thing is just wonderful. However, around the time that the temperature drops a couple dozen degrees, grilling outside becomes a hassle, and grilling indoor is a bit difficult due to all the smoke that it creates.
Or is it? There are electric grills which you can use to cook from your very own kitchen, indoors, with no charcoal required. Sounds like a great idea, and one that can help you get the taste you love even when the days are long and cold, right?

An indoor grill is a fairly simple device. It consists of a heating element and either a plate placed atop that element (or elements) or a grate that sits above the heating element, allowing the grease to drip through. They’re great for grilling food, but you may not get that same smoky flavor that you get from cooking with coal. However, as Hank Hill famously said, with an indoor electric grill you will ‘taste the meat, not the heat’. Now, let’s take a look at the contenders for the title “best electric grill on the market”.
