    Top 5 Best Indoor Grill | 2018 Reviews

    Barbecue is an all-time favorite meal for us, and we completely understand how your cravings can run for a good barbecue. Grills are meant to be done outside in the backyard because of all the smoke and the smell of burning charcoal, but the thing is, we can't help but enjoy a barbecue especially during winters. However, grilling outside is impossible for winter hence the birth of the indoor grill.

    Indoor grills bring us as much grilled meat and vegetable goodness while adding a punch of health. Indoor grills are relatively safer than outdoor grills since we don't need to use charcoal. Coal can produce carcinogens that are extremely dangerous for our bodies.

    We have taken the liberty of choosing five of the best indoor grills in the market for you. We know how difficult it would be to find so many indoor grills that it gets frustrating to choose the right one. We have narrowed the list down to five to make sure that you get only the top indoor grillers Amazon has to offer.

    Grilled steak is perfect for any season! Even winter! But you don't want to grill your favorite steak recipe outdoors in mid-winter would you? We don't. It's counter-productive to do such a thing as well. And with that, we do recommend this great indoor grill that will make life easier for you. No more charcoal smears, no more problems in starting a fire, no more issue in making your food taste and smell too smokey either. And what's great about indoor grills is that it is healthier in more ways than you can think of. Besides, if you love cooking and you're pregnant, you don't want the smoke to affect your right nutrition or health in any way.

    Cuisinart Indoor grill is a masterpiece in our opinion. Its design is perfect, and it made for healthy grilling as well. It functions as a contact grill, Panini press, full griddle, full grill, and half grill/half griddle. If you want to use it as a griddle, just flip the grill plates and voilà! A griddle for pancakes, eggs, french toast, and bacon! If you want to use it as a Panini press, just click on the switch to release and make a hanging Panini press. It has a big gap to fit in thick slices of sandwiches. If you lay it flat, it becomes a wider griller/ griddler.

    The removable plates are fantastic; you can remove it and hand wash or just pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. We love that this griller is not messy at all because it does come with a removable drip tray that you can easily empty out. It is also dishwasher safe, so cooking and cleaning are a breeze especially for your pregnant self who'd love to sit down a bit to relax while waiting for the food to cook.

    We love that it has two separate thermostats controlled by different dials. One dial is used for the griddler and one for the griller/Panini press. You can choose the central dial if you are going to use the griddle or the grill. The griddler dial controls a thermostat labeled from 200 to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. The grill dial is set for warm, low, medium, high, and sear.

    It is sad that you can't use the griddle and the grill at one time with different dials and settings for each grill side. But you can adjust on your own. You can still use the griddle on the other side, but you need to be careful and watch over what you're cooking when you do this. Anyway, that's just a lazy way of doing it. It is an excellent indoor grill, and we mean it. For that reason, it is undoubtedly our first pick for the best indoor electric grill ever!

    Keeping warm in winter is not a problem when you surround yourself with your family and enjoying a great barbecue indoor. Kebabs, steaks, burgers, roasted veggies, and baked potatoes! Hearing those alone can already give us a warming boost for those cold winter days. The great thing about an indoor grill is that it can not only cook you up a good meal but also produce nice warm and toasty air around you.

    It is probably the most automatic indoor grill in our list. It has six auto-cooking programs that are already pre-set to cook the perfect burger, poultry, sandwich, sausage, red meat, and fish. It also has two additional cooking options for frozen food and manual cooking. These preset options have preset settings for temperature and cooking time to give you that lovely and delectable meal every single time. It's that simple. No more poking your meat to check the temperature, no more slicing to see if the inside is rare enough, or well-done.

    The cooking style of this indoor grill adapts its grilling cycle to the thickness of the food. It comes with a sensor that immediately adjusts the temperature based on the thickness of your meat. It even comes with beeping indicator lights, and we love that. So when you hear the first beep, it means that your food is rare with an indicator light flashing in yellow. With another beep and an indicator light flashing orange means that your food is medium. The final beep with the indicator light on red means it's well-done. If you want to hear another beep, then be ready to check on your blackened steak.

    You can also remove the die-cast aluminum grill plate. And much like the others, you can wash it in the dishwasher as well. This griller comes with a drip tray to catch-all those excess fats. The downside to this is that it only has one cooking option for manual grilling. It is always set on high. Due to the Optigrills setting, the sensor can be cheated on and wouldn't adjust well to cooking your food if you are cooking uneven meat thickness.

    And with that, we take this as our second best indoor grill in the market!

    Swissmar KF-77081 Granite Stone Grill Top

    Swissmar KF-77081 Granite Stone Grill Top

    Grilling isn't only limited to meat only. It is also perfect for searing vegetables and cooking seafood in a non-greasy way. And the non-greasy way of cooking is a healthier way of cooking overall. It is ideal for those who want to maintain a healthy pregnancy weight, a healthy lifestyle, and simply a great way of cooking. And for healthy veggie and seafood grilling, we recommend the Swissmar Party Grill.

    The reason why this is the healthiest electric indoor grill in our list is a granite top grill. Using a stoneware roaster has more pros than cons, and it is more efficient too. It's great that it evenly distributes the heat throughout the entire stone top, unlike inside cast iron grills that are hotter in one area. It also cooks food in lesser time because it absorbs heat quickly but not changing the color of the food you are cooking. It is smooth and easy to clean because you can just easily wash it under running water. It is a great inside grill because it doesn't change the color—and the nutritional content—of your food. Since it is made of granite, it doesn't have any harmful chemicals that can change the nutritional value of your food.

    The idea for this indoor grill is fabulous. It is a raclette—in this case, a 2-level electric roaster. So technically, you can do your typical grill on the granite top. The level below has smaller pans meant for melting cheese or heating sauces. So once your roast is nice and ready, just get one of the smaller containers and put cheese on it. Let it heat up on the grill top and scrape the melted cheese on top of your veggies, potatoes or cooked meat.

    This party raclette is easy enough to clean as well. They are all dishwasher safe. However, it isn't recommended that you use any steel brush to scrape off some of the meat that got stuck on the stoneware. Just let it soak in water for a while, and you can easily wash off the residue. Although it says that the indoor stone grill is non-stick, it still sticks. Not as much but it still sticks. And for that reason, this is the third best electric indoor grill in our list.

    The best thing about barbecues is that it is the perfect avenue for family time. You don't need a messy outdoor grill to do that; you can have a quick and easy set-up in the comforts of your kitchen and still make the best barbecue. So while you're grilling, why not take this chance and get your husband and the kids to bond? You can have a great quality time with delicious food on one of the best indoor grills in the market. George Foreman is a name that is so familiar in The Home Shopping Network, and this indoor grill is nothing new to us.

    This one is the best contact grill in our list. It is simple but gives us one of the best indoor grilling experience. The great thing about George Foreman indoor grills is that it considers a lot about our health. Most of their indoor grills are set at an angle. This slanted grill burns at most 42% of the unhealthy fat in your meat. The angle gives way for excess fat to drip and slides off the grill instead of being reabsorbed by the meat. Once your meat reabsorbs the fat, it makes it even more unhealthy because of the chemical change it undergoes when it is being cooked. Just imagine sipping half a cup of lard with every pound of meat you grill. That's as much fat as you can get with just a hamburger patty. A drip tray catches the excess unhealthy fat at the opening of the grill.

    It is also great that this home grill is pretty easy to clean up. The grill plates are removable, and you can easily slide them into the dishwasher for easy cleaning. Since the grills are non-stick, you are barely left with any residue sticking on it. What we love about the non-stick coating is that this model comes with a reinforced coating that has better resistance to scratches in contrast to its predecessors.

    We also love that this inside grill for steaks has adjustable hinges to accommodate thicker meat slices and have that nice and even sear. It also comes with indicator lights - red when it's plugged in and green when it's already preheated for the perfect grilling temperature. Another good thing about the George Foremen indoor electric grill is that it can cook you up a good meal within 10 minutes! And with that, we give it our ParentsNeed thumbs up putting it fourth on our list of the best indoor grills for steaks!

    One of the things we love about being a stay-at-home parent is that we can carefully monitor everyone's health and the food they are eating. We can also spend better time in preparing healthy meals and not relying on delivery or take-outs when we're too tired from work. And one of the best ways of cooking is grilling, but one that you don't need to spend cleaning up afterward. You can prep your meats and veggies and start cooking with an indoor grill.

    The Delonghi Indoor Grill is a great half contact grill. Designed after the real backyard grill, it only has one plate for grilling. It's great that the cast iron grill plate evenly distributes heat throughout your food. It cooks all the meat inside the grill evenly.

    The grill comes with a thermostat that you can adjust to grill or roast your food at the precise temperature. This way, you are sure to get evenly cooked food and the expected grilling results all the time. You can roast food inside as well; using the glass lid, you can seal the heat inside the indoor grill for steaks. It can help you roast up good chicken and more.

    Grilling with this is great. It doesn't have those annoying and frustrating hot and cold spots. These spots make it far easier for us to enjoy an evenly cooked meal. We love that the grill plate has beautiful sear lines as well giving you that desirable sears on your steak.

    We love that it is wide and long which helps in cooking bigger and broader cuts of meat as well. The grill pan and drip tray are removable as well and surely dishwasher safe. What's great about the grill plate is that you can use it as a serving pan. Just cook the meat, plate well and serve it on the table. It can be a bit hot though so let the food and pan cooled down a little.

    And with these reasons, this completes our list of five best indoor grills in the market!
