Electric Barbecue Grills Is Wonderful In San Diego!
The difference between the traditional kind of grills and the electric bbq grills is that you can control the temperatures in the electric grills.
Every home needs a grill. There are many options out there depending on the space you have and the type of grill you’re looking for. Our favorite type of grill is an electric grill. Benefits of electric grills include:
- Quickly reaches temperatures to sear or grill
- Safe to use inside (need venting hood) or out- can be used in small spaces and on apartment or condo balconies!
- Portable and lightweight- great for tailgating, camping, and more!
- Cleaner grilling- no smoke or char
- Easy to clean
- Save money- no propane tanks to replace
- Make restaurant quality food with the dual sear and grill feature
- Price- much more affordable than similar quality gas grills
The Legacy 2 Electric Cook Number™ Grill can sear, roast and even comes with the patented Cook Number System™, taking the guess work out of grilling. It is compact in size, perfect for smaller balconies, and can also be used traveling with an RV, camping, tailgating, and more! Read more here.
Electric BBQ grills are easily controlled (just turn the dial) and more or less instant, just flick the switch and you’re ready to cook. They’re also the perfect for anyone who wants to grill outdoors in a restricted area – maybe on a balcony outside your apartment or at a camp-ground where naked fires are forbidden.
Clearly electricity as a power source does have its restrictions in that you need a ready supply of electricity so not a problem when at home or on a designated camp-ground but more problematic maybe when ‘out on the open road’. On most electric BBQ grills (Holland is the exception) you are cooking directly on a heating element and the advantage here is that you have an even spread of heat so everything cooks at the same rate.
The downside however is that the heat produced isn’t as powerful as the alternative afforded by gas or charcoal grills. This make searing steaks problematic but for most other cooking you can overcome this by allowing a little extra time when cooking. See more here.
Electric grills use a hot coil for heat. Often made from an alloy of nickel and chromium called nichrome, when a current is passed through it the nichrome resist the flow, gets hot, and glows.
If I look hard, I suppose I can find some redeeming features. Before you buy be sure to read my article: How to Buy a Grill for tips on thinks to consider when buying any grill.
Easy start. Throw the switch and electric grills are up to temperature in five minutes or so.
Temperature control. Just turn the dial. Alas, they rarely get above 400°F, so don’t expect to do steakhouse steaks with a rich dark sear. And electrics with actual thermostats with temperature settings cost more.
Timer. Some have timers. Handy if you don’t have a kitchen timer.
Price. Most are well under $200
Size. They are small so they fit on tiny balconies and porches. Now if you live in an apartment or condo and that’s all they’ll let you have, then so be it. But I see no advantage in an electric grill on the balcony when you can get the same results with a George Foreman grill on the counter — other than it saves space in the kitchen.
