Grills made to match the size of your family
Purchasing an indoor or outdoor electric grill is a wise decision. You can find any type of electric grill - including portable grills or tabletop grills - that will feed families of any size. They're ideal for singles or couples who don't want to spend all day in the kitchen.
Electric grills are clean and safe
Outdoor, indoor, portable, and tabletop electric grills combine convenience with safety. Electric grills cook food more evenly than charcoal or gas grills without using open flames or flammable liquids. Environment-friendly, built-in electric grills can reduce carbon dioxide by 91 percent and emit nearly 100 percent less carbon monoxide than charcoal units.
Electric grill users hail the unit's easy cleaning characteristics. Most cooking grids and grease drip pans can simply be popped into the dishwasher.
Consumers also like the built-in safety features on electric grills. Some models have a plastic base that stays cool to prevent burns. Automatic shutoff capability keeps the grill from possibly overheating. Be sure to consult the user's manual that comes with the grill for safety information.
Many city fire codes prohibit the use of gas or charcoal grills in apartment buildings. Tabletop and portable electric grills are permitted in most apartments. They are safe to use indoors and outdoors.
Keeping carcinogens away from food
Cooking food on a gas or charcoal grill carries the risk of introducing carcinogens into the air. The byproducts of cooking with those kinds of grills can increase the risk of certain cancers. George Foreman electric grills emit lower amounts of smoke, helping cut down on the release of carcinogens.
Many scientists believe that carcinogens in food and in the atmosphere that come from grilling are released in small enough amounts that the health risk is minimal. But why take chances when an electric grill reduces that risk even more?
Carcinogens are also linked to fat that is present in meat. When fat drips into an open flame, the flare-up produces a dark-colored smoke that, when contacted with the meat, renders it carcinogenic. George Foreman electric grills feature drip cups that help prevent flare-ups.
Charred meat is thought to have more carcinogens, and there's an increased chance of that when using gas or charcoal grills. An electric grill gives you better heat control, thus reducing the chance for scorching meat.
