The Most Popular Electric Barbecue Grill

Electric Grill BBQ's make it possible to grill year round.  Here's the low-down of each grill, based on my own views and those of other owners.

-The maximum setting works admirably for most grilling chores, from chicken or steak to hamburger patties, and delivers the much required customary sear marks as it cooks foods to perfection. -Little to no smoke
-Nonstick cooking surface released foods with nary a stick. The resulting meals are lower in fat and healthier.
-Very even cooking surface, no hot or cold spots, a big advantage over most other electric grills.
-Cleaning is beautifully easy because of the non-stick surface. Just brush or wipe with a damp cloth and your grill is clean. The drip tray and plastic base are dishwasher safe, but also clean easily in hot, soapy water if you wish.

-Would be nice to have a lid.
-Not possible set an exact temperature.
-The high setting proved a little too hot for grilling delicate seafood and vegetables, as well as any foods coated in a thick barbecue sauce. So make sure you leave the heat around 3/4 throttle to cook foods like this and turn them on the grill frequently to avoid charring. -Smokes a little like the others, depending on what you are grilling.

-Includes a skillet area on the grill plate, so smaller grilling area but you have a side part to grill onions or bacon for your burgers.
-The grill piece is dishwasher safe.
-Comes with a cover which is nice.

-Cover is relatively flat so thick meats will touch the inside of the cover.
-As with most electric grills not really smokeless... depends what you are grilling.
-Not as searing hot as it should be for thicker meats.
-Somewhat involved to clean because of the small holes in grill plate - soaking in hot soapy water helps though.

-Nice sized grilling area which is perfect for 2 people.
-120 Square inch size is not overly huge like some of the other grills.
-Non-stick grilling surface.
-Doesn't really cook evenly. Often times, parts of a piece of meat will be virtually raw while other parts are well done.
-The grill part is coated with a non-stick material but it does get pretty dirty even if you wash it after every use. After quite a few grillings, you have to take time to carefully clean with a small brush.
-Back of the grill isn't coated so gets very stained and dark with repeated usage.
-Paint chips off the drip pan.
-Lack of a lid.

-Cleaning is a breese...just wipe down the hot grill with a wet papertowl and it looks like new.
-Non-stick grilling surface.
-200 Square inch grilling surface for lots of food - good for 3 to 4 people.

- The shallow pan is a pain to dump the water after grilling.
- The heat comes from the grill itself and not from under the grill surface.
-The backside of the grill is not non-stick, so is a pain to clean up.
-Smokes a bit-As with it's smaller brother, there is no lid.
- 125 degree jump at the end of the dial makes it difficult to select temps between 300-425-Uneven cooking surface with some cold spots.

This isn't the list of "best to worst", just my own opinion on most popular electric barbecue grill by research customers reviews and experience.
