Summer is officially here, which means it’s BBQ season! Grilling in the summertime is supposed to be one of life’s simple pleasures, but what do urbanites do if they don’t have a backyard for their BBQ soirées?
We may have the answer… Meet the Philips Smoke-Less Infrared Grill. The sleek indoor grill was specifically designed for anyone stuck in the city without a backyard or patio to get their grill on.
How does it work? Simply plug in the Philips grill and allow the barbeque grate to pre-heat to the one-set temperature of 446 F, which generally takes about 6-7 minutes. Then place your food on the grill so it can be evenly cooked by infrared heat elements on the sides of the unit. Flip your food just like you would if you were using a BBQ, and notice the grill marks thanks to the aluminum die cast grid. Next? Take your food off the grill, serve and enjoy. It’s really that simple.
The final result is perfectly seared meat on the outside that is incredibly juicy on the inside. It’s almost impossible to tell that the food was cooked on an inside grill sitting on your kitchen counter. A near perfect imitation to cooking over an open flame, without the smoke.
Even better? Everything but the heating element is dishwasher safe.
Grilling indoors dreams are now a reality.
