Factors to consider when choosing an electric grill

If an electric grill has a cover it better have a temperature gauge built into the lid so that it can let you know when your food is ready. A simple go light will suffice for contact-style grills to alert you when the temperature has been reached.
Power to recover heat fast
Whenever you open the lid of an electric grill, some heat escapes. Buy the best grill that has enough power to power up quickly to the desired heat level.
