The Cuisinart GR-4N is a pocket dynamo that can operate as a full grill, half grill, full griddle, half griddle, contact grill or panini press.

This is perhaps the best looking indoor grill on the market and it works as good as it looks. The fact that the cooking surface isn’t inclined is a bit of an annoyance but nothing so great that we wouldn’t recommend this. Because it does an excellent job with whatever you decide to put into it. Be sure to also check out our list of the best camping grills for more great items like this.

  • Brand: Cuisinart
  • Weight: 14.9 pounds

 


  • Cuisinart’s removable and reversible cooking plates make for easy cleaning.

  • Dual temperature controls allow for greater input on your part in the cooking process.

  • High build quality and clean, brushed stainless steel housing.


  • We’d like to see a tilted cooking surface for easier cleanup.

The T-Fal GC702 has its own 6 settings from which to choose: burger, sandwich, red meat, sausage, poultry and fish.

The T-Fal GC702 does a great job on thicker cuts of meat that other indoor grills have a hard time with. Beyond that it drains away fat while you cook, informs you when a cut of meat should be rare, medium or well done and has a manual mode for when you want to roast vegetables. If you buy this grill, make sure you have good meat cleavers handy cause you’ll be grilling the meat all the time.

It’s a grill. It’s a griddle. It’s both! The Hamilton Beach Grill/Griddle combo saves you time while opening up culinary options you don’t have with other grills.

While it’s true the individual cooking surfaces are not huge they’re big enough to cook a variety of different dishes including steaks, chops, omelets, pancakes and a whole lot more. The ability to independently control the heat on the different sides is also a plus, as is the slightly tilted surface. This is also a great Christmas gift for your loved ones.

Presto is a good name for this tabletop electric grill because it heats up in a hurry.

We like the wide cooking surface. It saves time by allowing you to cook more chops, chicken wings or whatever else you’ve got lined up. We like the cool touch base. We like how quickly the unit heats up and we really like the price. Oh yeah, and we like the free spatula too.

Specification:

  • Brand: Presto
  • Model: 09020
  • Weight: 5 pounds

  • When you’re finished just wipe the grill down a bit and pop it in the dishwasher.

  • The base around the grill surface takes advantage of Presto’s “cool touch” technology.

  • Cooking surface is a generous 16 inches across to accommodate more food for more people.


  • A lid for the grill would be nice.

Whether you’re having the boss over for dinner or you just want to make a burger, the Excelvan Barbecue Grill is the grill for the job.

All in all this last entry in our top 10 grill list is a great value that presents plenty of cooking surface.

For more great options check out our guide to the best pellet grills.

Specification:

  • Brand: Excelvan
  • Weight: 7.4 pounds

  • Fats drip through to the collection plate rather than being absorbed by your burger.

  • Temperature control is pretty good for an indoor electric grill.

  • Coating on the drip plate is not as robust as we would like it to be.
