Best Electric Grills for 2021

  • Electric grills are the grills to get when convenience is top priority. Setting a temperature? The grill won’t stray from it. They’re safe, cook evenly, clean up easily, and perfect for families or those in constrained spaces (think small yards to condominium balconies), while painless to light or operate; forget hassling with fire or adjusting gas flames. Want the best one? We do too! Our industry experts chose these based upon quality, performance, and features.

    Quality - The best electric grills include solid design and construction. Stainless steel jumps the line, thanks to unbeatable heat retention and outdoor longevity in the category. Other considerations include sturdy insulation intelligently-designed rapid heating elements. Warranties are fairly sparse, so we also prioritize strong guarantees from competent brands.

    Performance - Expectations include a great electric grill that reaches temperatures hot enough to sear steak, yet low enough for gentle sizzle on delicate dishes — while easy overall to use. Minimum and maximum temperatures can be constrained due to their heating elements and electrical wiring, but our experts demand capable performance.

    Features - Electric grills must distinguish themselves from their competition through unique, thoughtful bonuses. Some of these extras might include safety timer shut-offs, digital temperature controllers, and unique flame tamers that protect the heating elements from drippings and splatters.
