Part of selecting your grill will simply be taking a look at what you want to use it for. Will you be cooking steaks? Burgers? Corn on the cob? How many people do you plan to cook for? Will you be cooking on a patio or do you plan on tailgating? There are a lot of things you can consider when choosing a vertical grill.

- This vertical electric grill opens like a large book to create space for not only grilling your favorite foods such as steak or salmon, but there are stands that can hold up kebobs or any favorite treat on a stick.

It comes with a nice recipe book if you’re not completely familiar with traditional raclette dishes.
- This is the ultimate household electric grill kebab machine, and it has really no other purpose except helping you cook a kebab thoroughly and upright. An oil collector keeps the machine clean and safe, and it features six skewer slots so you can cook for a decent sized group all at one time. While the meat should cook thoroughly, it’s recommended that you don’t combine two different meats on a single skewer; they cook at different rates, as do the veggies, so there’s the danger of either undercooked or overcooked contents.

- This vertical electric grill another great choice for rotisserie lovers, shwarma and kabob grillers.

The broiler heats up slowly and then cooks evenly, while the “keyhole” part of this grill is made from an open structure of heating elements that allows for the optimal use of energy. Some users find the cooking time to be a little slow; chickens can take 5-6 hours but they’re cooked evenly and come out juicy.
