Indoor Grills Buying Guide

Refine By

When the weather doesn't cooperate or you live in a climate with cold-weather months, an indoor grill keeps summer recipes alive. Grilling meat or vegetables can be an easy, year-round routine on the smaller surface of an indoor grill. Just be sure your kitchen has the proper ventilation.

Types of Indoor Grills

Types of Indoor Grills

If you're ready for some sizzlin' steaks, chops, or burgers, there's no need to check the weather for optimal grilling temperatures. With an indoor grill, you can have your favorite outdoor meals and more. Plus, you'll have the added benefit of doing some healthful, low-fat cooking. Many electric indoor grill models are designed to drain away the meat fat into a drip tray. With adjustable thermostats, changeable and dishwasher-safe plates, and features such as the ability to sear then grill with a built-in broiler, an indoor grill is a great appliance for a delicious grill experience.

Contact Grill

A contact grill, similar to a panini maker, has a lid that closes over the meat to conduct heat above and below. Because the food cooks from both sides, this type of grill eliminates the need to turn the food and cuts the cooking time in half.

Enjoy contact grilling all year long with the De'Longhi Contact Grill and Panini Press. You will always get consistent and thoroug...hly grilled and toasted foods with the fully embedded plate and contact cooking, as it distributes heat evenly to avoid any overly hot or cold spots. Impress your family and guests by preparing many different meals, from burgers to steak, to chicken and panini sandwiches; the adjustable hinge accommodates food of any size. For a healthier twist on grilling, the machine is slightly slanted allowing grease and oil to drain away from your food. And ensure precise grilling and toasting with the adjustable thermostat. If you've been grilling for hours, you won't be cleaning for hours, simply wipe off the non-stick grill plate and empty the drain cup. It's that easy! It's safety first with this contact grill -- the cool touch handles allow for easy movement once grilling or toasting is complete. Other highlights include an on/off indicator light and safety locking system for convenient, upright storage.

Open Grill

This type of grill features a single cooking surface that sits above a drip pan. This style of cooking is most similar to outdoor grilling—because the grill cooks from the bottom, foods must be flipped to cook the other side.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before purchasing an electric indoor grill, think about how you will use it. If you plan to cook meats as well as breakfasts, sandwiches, and more, a contact grill is the best option. However, if you are going to stick to cooking traditional-style grilled foods such as steaks, pork chops, and fish steaks, an open grill is a good choice. In addition to the key elements of size and space, think about how quickly you want your meat to cook, whether the grill will produce smoke and splatter, and how many pieces of the grill are dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup.


If you have a small kitchen, consider your kitchen's countertop space when selecting an indoor grill. A small grill cooks two servings, while the largest grill accommodates cooking for up to four people. You can double the cooking space by choosing a grill that can open flat.


Look for features like a grilling surface with reversible sides so you can go from a flat surface (great for pancakes and eggs) to a grill pattern for sear marks on steaks, chops, and hamburgers.

Adjustable Thermostat

Adjustable heat temperatures are important to control cooking for various cuts of meat, chicken, or fish, or for simply making a grilled cheese sandwich. Some open grills have two separately controlled heat zones, offering the ability for simultaneous cooking at different heat levels.


Nonstick plates make cleanup easy. Read the use and care manual to find out if the plates and drip pans are dishwasher-safe.
