How to choose an electric barbecue? Compare and find the best
The electric barbeque can cook food which tastes just as good, though you might lose some of the barbeque flavour produced by the traditional grill. On the other hand though, these electric barbeques have a number of advantages. They are much easier to clean than other types of barbeque, and as anyone who’s had a big barbeque party will know, cleaning up the cooking materials can be a huge effort and a time consuming process.
On top of this, the other main advantage of the electric barbeque option is that it heats up almost immediately, meaning that cooking can begin as soon as you are ready. Most gas barbeques heat up relatively quickly too, but a traditional charcoal grill can take up to an hour just to prepare the grill for cooking. With electric options, you can start cooking in a matter of minutes.
Electric barbeques only use electricity to heat the grill on which the food is placed. This means little mess, no black stains and marks on your food, and an instant easy to use cooking system. All you need to power them is a plug socket. Though all electric barbeques work like this, there are still various types to consider.
Indoor and outdoor eletric barbecue!
Some electric barbeques are versatile and can be used both indoors and out. Whilst gas barbeques tend to be huge garden only systems, some electric barbeques are much smaller and can be used indoors as well. These are usually on wheels so that they can easily be moved indoors and out. The main advantage is an obvious one: your barbeque will not be weather dependant. No rushing to move the sausages to the oven when the skies open and it starts to rain, no cancelling your guests last minute. Instead you can just move your barbeque inside.
Different cooking surfaces for different foods
Some electric grills come which changeable cooking surfaces. This makes the barbeque more suited to people who want to cook a wide range of products and not just meat. They can even be used for sandwiches and waffles. Another advantage here is cooking for vegetarians. Rather than struggling to keep your grill clear of meat-contamination, cleaning the whole thing before cooking for the veggies, or trying to keep all the meat to one side, you can simply switch the top and use a new clean one to cook your vegetables and meat free options. These are also usually small, and some can be used indoors and out, so check the individual product that you are buying.
The plancha grill is a method of (usually) electric barbeque which originates in Spain. These are great for making grilled fish and meats. They are more like a flat-pan or griddle and can be used in a real variety of ways and can even stir-fry and sauté your vegetables as well as grill you meat. Many modern electric barbeques feature similar systems of heating to this, and if you want to do some more exotic barbequing it might be worth looking into this option.
