I love grilled food but to be honest I am not very good at it. There is so much variation in a charcoal grill and with the cooler days approaching we will have less and less opportunities to grill outside. These two reasons are why I found the Delonghi Indoor Electric Grill to be a meet my needs fantastically. The electric grill surface evenly grills chicken, steak, fish, or veggies. It size and design make cleaning it a very simple task and allow it to be a very mobile cooking device. This easily fits in in the trunk of my car with out having to break anything down. The cooking surface is large enough to support 6-8 ½ burgers or any collaboration of grilling delights. If you purchase this machine before September 30th you can save an additional 10$ on this purchase making its final price 49.95! great price for a great grill!
