Frequently Asked Questions
What Can You Grill On An Electric Grill?
You can grill almost anything on an electric grill that you can on a charcoal grill, including fish, chicken, burgers, and lean meats.
Are Electric Grills Carcinogenic?
Some manufacturers use a non-stick coating on the grilling surface, which could cause you to ingest carcinogens. To prevent this problem, avoid PFOA coatings at all costs and don’t buy PTFE coated electric grills that can reach temperatures above 500°F (260°C).
Do Electric Grills Produce Smoke?
Electric grills do not produce charcoal or wood smoke since these are not used in electric grilling. They may produce food smoke by vaporizing fat and food juices if they are of the open grill design that uses radiant heat.
Is it Illegal To Use Charcoal Grills?
Local fire laws prohibit the use of charcoal grills in enclosed spaces. This is because burning charcoal produces carbon monoxide that is dangerous to human life.
