When you’re looking for an indoor grill, George Foreman isn’t the only option, but it’s always at the top of the list. Electric grills have evolved amazingly since their invention in the 1990’s, but one thing has remained the same: electric grills are a great way to cook meat and veggies that will also help you cut the fat from your main dish. Cooking at home isn’t always fun and easy, but when you’re using an electric grill, there’s little effort. Clean up is typically easy with these appliances as well.
Many electric grills on the market can be used indoors and out, although some are more portable with handles and longer cords.

- This appliance warms up quickly and maintains a solid, even temperature as it cooks.Make sure that all the plates are locked in place for each use, and although there is a drip tray, be aware if there are a lot of extra fat drippings; if they’re not draining quickly, there can be splatter. Otherwise, this is a great indoor electric grill for any home that needs to cook up to four servings at once. The fittings come out and are easy to clean.
- This may be one of the best smokeless indoor electric grill appliances on the market. Great for homes and apartment living, this infrared grill preheats in about 8-10 minutes. Once it has heated, it gets to very high temperatures – it’s recommended that if you have any fans in the kitchen, turn them on to circulate the air. Each grill fitting is nonstick which means there is minimal clean up. Just like any grill, the thicker the meat, and the longer the cooking time. Burgers can generally be cooked in less than 15 minutes – 5-8 minutes on the first side, depending on your desired result. The grills will need to be cleaned regularly to keep them stick-free. The easiest way to do this is to briefly soak a rag in warm, soapy water and hand-clean each of them thoroughly.

- This smaller electric grill for home is a Foreman classic, which can make up to 4 servings of small cuts of meat at a time, or handle something thicker and larger like a Panini.When cooking multiple items, you should be able to leave an inch and a half between them, so your mileage may vary when it comes to serving sizes.

- This electric multi-grill for home can get a lot of things done for its user. So what is the 4-in-1? This device can transform into an indoor grill, double griddle, combo grill/griddle, or a separate bacon cooker, which is one of my own favorite features. The griddle gives you 200 square inches of cooking space, while the grill cuts that expectation in half. You can also close it like a clamshell grill and heat up thick cuts of chicken, steak, and hamburgers or Paninis this way. Bacon is said to be very easily cooked on this appliance.

The nonstick cooking plates should be cleaned gently with soap, water and a clean sponge.

You can’t tell by looking at it, but this versatile electric grill is more than a griddle. It offers 6 cooking options in one: a contact grill, Panini press, full griddle, full grill, half grill, half griddle, and top melt. The settings are pretty precise to help you get the perfect dish every time. The contact grill can handle thick cuts of meat or fish. Parts are removable and all of the plates are nonstick, easy to clean fittings. When open as a full griddle, you get about 240 square inches of grilling space.
