Need recommendation for inexpensive electric grill

Answered on August 19, 2014

Because I live with someone who can not handle the smell of cooking meat indoors, I need to grill outside in a covered area. I'd like to get a grill, but for right now, cost is a major issue. Electric would be best.

Carl! That's too bad! Ours was fine for a whole decade. I wonder if each model has it's own issues.

I've had 2 Foreman grills, and the coating didn't last a year before scraping off.

The Foreman is great. It even has a little catcher for the juices (salad dressing). It doesn't squeeze anything if you don't press it down. I'd say get one with removable plates for easy cleaning.

yeah just reminding people, I cry a little at all the good cooking fat that goes down the drain from those horrible machines.

Most George Foreman's have a little fat-catcher! It'll be super easy to save the fat! ;)

Although, I'm not a fan of non-stick surfaces. That's my only caveat.

You might try a George Foreman Grill. My husband had one for years and loved it.

They make an indoor/outdoor version for $59 and of course there are less expensive versions. ;)

need-recommendation-for-inexpensive-electric-grill

Cast Iron Electric Grill. +1 for Cast Iron! -1 for currently unavailable, but im sure you can find it somewhere other than amazon.

Heres 5 on ebay, $40 each.

Also, you could get a Cast Iron Grill Plate

need-recommendation-for-inexpensive-electric-grill

Usually run around $30, stick on top of any burner to cook without Teflon ;)

Great question. I've been looking for one myself. I went to Home Depot and saw this Weber. Weber Electric Grill

Does anyone use this Weber Grill? I thought it was over priced for an electric grill and it has mixed reviews.
