In the summer, electric grills are the greatest way to cook outdoors, but could they represent a health risk? Aluminum foil may be used on an electric grill without causing burns. Although the Electric Grill is a well-designed gadget, I was worried that it might smoke my family out of the house. If you don't have access to a barbeque or charcoal grill, or if it's too chilly to cook outside, an electric grill is the ideal answer. When a griller is compelled to travel somewhere where gas or charcoal are banned, the Electric Grill is the most practical portable option.
