Today, there are dozens of variations on the standard electric grill, and one is sure to catch your fancy if you’ve got the counter space and a good idea of what you want out of this type of appliance. Fear not – I’ve got a great list for you to try. Each of these models was chosen for its convenience and ability to multi-task.

- This is a large, family-size non-stick griddle that functions as a great vintage-look breakfast station, including a coffee maker!

While you’re waiting on the coffee, this unit can toast up to 4 slices of bread, bagels, etc. The griddle is non-stick and functions as an indoor grill where you can cook omelets, bacon, sausage, etc. Use this unit to bake, toast, cook and even reheat food.

Food cooks evenly and the manual is accurate – make sure you read it for cooking times and other tips.

It can cook up to 450 degrees and features an easy to use temperature knob to control it. For the oven itself, you can cook for up to 60 minutes, perfect for rotisseries. While it can cut off automatically, you can also set it to keep your food warm as you wait for the rest of the meal to finish.

- Perfect for multitaskers! This oven and grill let you bake, grill, simmer and toast, making it perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
