Small Scale Home Grills

In Gadgets & Tech by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Will smaller grills become more popular thanks to the threat of quarantine? Maybe yes, maybe no. Having a small grill for just one or two people isn’t a bad idea but with grilling being a social, outdoor tradition, the call for baby grills hasn’t exactly been a booming voice. As the world faces down the Coronavirus this spring and potentially again in the fall, perhaps there’ll be more demand for the mighty mites of grilling. Here are three of them for your consideration.

VonShef Smokeless Grill
I’m always skeptical of so-called smokeless grills. Food on a grill always makes smoke; these grills usually use a a fan to hide the smoke, often with dubious results. That said, this VonChef offering is a viable little number for small-scale grilling, smokeless or no. Excess fat is collected into a removable drip tray beneath the grill. MSRP: $89.99
Philips smokeless indoor grill
Philips Smoke-less Indoor Grill
Philips also touts its own Smoke-less Indoor Grill. Thanks to the advanced infrared technology, the grill reportedly heats up fast, so you can start cooking in just minutes. But at $279.95, it’s more than I’d probably shell out for something this size.

HERO Grill Portable Lightweight Charcoal Grilling System
The HERO grill shown runs a ceramic coated grilling surface astride an instant light, single use charcoal Pod. Allegedly ready to cook on in ten minutes with a 60 minute duration per Pod, it captures all the grilling mess for easy clean up. The HERO take is coupled with a nested, multi-use thermometer and custom designed bamboo spatula for easy cooking. With a MSRP of $139.95, it’s the mid-priced model of our little collection here.
