The 5 Best Rated Indoor Electric Grill Bbqs – As Rated By Owners

Here’s the basics of each grill, based on my own views and those of other owners. I’ve put them in alphabetical order, this is NOT the list of “best to worst” at all. I will reveal my own opinion on the leading grill later:

Delonghi BG24

-Big grilling area.
-Drip pan easy to clean.
-The Non-stick surface works perfect with a light coat of oil.
-Preheats fairly quickly
-Cooking surface heats fairly evenly.
-The glass-top is useful for certain foods and nice to have.

-Grill plate aggravating to clean – not dishwasher safe according to manufacturer.
-Takes up huge amount of counter space due to size.
-Heating element is built into grill plate so not true bbq style – just a heating element with slits to let out the fat.
-The Glass top does not perfectly fit over the grilling surface and is too shallow.
-Doesn’t get hot enough to sear meat

George Foreman GGR50B Indoor/Outdoor

-Simple Setup.
-Good Heat Control.
-Large grilling area.
-Non-stick grilling surface.

-Drip tray should be larger. If you baste while you grill, this one can fill up quickly.
-Not very easy to clean – hard to fit in sink due to size.
-A mite top heavy when on supplied stand so it can go down easily if bumped.

Sanyo HP-SG2

-Nice sized grilling area which is perfect for 2 people.
-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 many grillings, you have to take time to fastidiously 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

Sanyo HP-SG3

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

– The rinkydink 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 confusing to select temps between 300-425
-Uneven cooking surface with some cold spots.

West Bend 6111 Heart Smart

-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 delightful.

-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.

Zojirushi EB-CC15

-The highest setting works well for most grilling chores, from chicken or steak to hamburger patties, and delivers the much desired customary sear marks as it cooks foods to impeccability.
-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 wonderfully 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 prefer.

-Would be nice to have a lid.
-Not possible set an precise 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.
