Does anyone have experience with this? I’m skeptical of the heat I’d get from an electric grill opposed to gas or charcoal.
It looks like it would be very difficult to clean as well.
Can anybody who has one let us know?
Does the fat drip directly onto the burner?
I bought one last month. Gets to 500 degrees plus pretty fast, also looses heat fast when open. Stuff seems to take longer to cook than the instructions say, but I’ve had several tasty meals. Cleaning is mostly burning stuff off of it and brushing it. It doesn’t come with a brush or grill tools.
No. There is a small drip pan located under the grill. clean up is fairly easy. The grate is cast iron so it’s important to “season” the cooking surface as outlined in the owners manual. Cooking does take bit longer than gas or charcoal grills, but it’s super easy to use. I recommend it.
It’s like a big George Foreman grill. For $80 it’s not bad, and would be good for someone that can’t have a gas or charcoal grill (apartments, etc.), but want’s to cook outside. The biggest thing for me was the heat loss. can’t really leave it open and have it cook fast like you can do with a gas or charcoal grill.
Considering this for my camper. I have a LP hookup on the side, but also an electric outlet…We mostly camp with electric so this seems like less hassle than the LP tank.
Does anyone have experience on collapsing it? It needs to be halfway portable to put in the camper when on the road…
