Traditional grills can be big, heavy, and difficult. Electric grills provide that same fun grilling experience, without the hassle and wait time of preparing a grill that requires a flammable fuel source. We've assembled a collection of the best outdoor electric grills available to make your next cookout a smash!
Drain the fat away
George Foreman GGR50B
You'll be ready to cook fast on this 1600 watt electric grill. There are five temperature settings to choose from, a vented lid, and the plate is removable for easy cleanup. Plus, you get to take advantage of the patented slope design that lets fat drain away from meats.
Space for prep
Char-Broil TRU Infrared Electric Grill
Cook food evenly with infrared technology, while the removable grease tray catches the mess. The fold-out shelves on either side mean there's no need for an extra workspace. Keep foods on the warming rack when you're not ready to serve. When you're finished, the stand offers cord management and wheels to help you store the grill.
Techwood Electric BBQ Grill
An interlocking hood and bowl system create a heat cycling affect around your food, helping with an even cook. You can also use the hood vent, so you don't ruin your searing efforts. The double-rack system lets you keep food warm before serving, and the smoke-free design means you can use it on your apartment balcony.
No setup required
Weber Q 1400 Electric Grill
You're ready to start cooking right out of the box with the Weber Q 1400, as there are no parts to assemble. The 1560-watt grill offers 189 square inches of cooking space, and the aluminum liners help retain heat for even cooking.
George Foreman GFO240S
It's easy to tell when you're ready to cook on this 1400 watt grill thanks to the indicator light. The cooking plate is not removable, but it is non-stick, so clean-up can still be a breeze. You'll also find all of the other features of the more expensive Goerge Foreman grill in our collection on this model for a reasonable price.
More cooking space
Weber Q 2400 Electric Grill
Need more space? The Weber Q 2400 has all the features of the Q 1400, except it, also has 280 square inches of cooking space -- the most available on any grill in our collection. Porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates help distribute heat and are easy to clean.
Save time and money
Electric grills are cost-effective because you don't need to stock up on briquettes, wood, lighter fluid, or propane to use them. If you're ready to make the switch, the George Foreman GGR50B is our favorite electric grill. The removable plates mean you can wash them in your sink, and everything you cook will have less fat thanks to the patented slope design. Barbecue with less guilt -- what's not to love about that?
If you're ready for an upgrade, consider the Char-Broil TRU Infrared Electric Grill. The fold-out table shelves on each side, plus the wire storage shelf, meaning you won't need another surface nearby to set your food on.
