If you can’t do the outdoor grilling thing for whatever reason, you don’t have to invite yourself to other people’s BBQs to enjoy succulent steaks and chicken breasts with those delicious grill marks. Get the T-Fal Emeril XL indoor electric grill from Shop.ca for only $129.99. The suggested retail price for this item is $269.99, and while I found it at prices higher than Shop.ca, it was never that high. Bed Bath and Beyond was one of the highest at $199.99, and Amazon was one of the lowest at $167.66.
With a 1700 watt grill and 230 square inches of grilling space, you can get high temperatures that mimic an outdoor grill. The non-stick die cast aluminum plates make grilling even easier and your meat and veggies will cook evenly. There is a splatter guide if you don’t like bacon juice in your eye, and the sloping surface doesn’t let your meat sit in a pool of its own blood while it cooks.
Even better, you can take off the plates and throw them in the dishwasher. You can’t do that with your outdoor BBQ. I think this item would make the perfect gift for the new graduate who might be heading to college or university next year or moving out on their own. I had something similar to this when I moved to university and it was a lifesaver because I didn’t have a stove at all. I was tired of cooking in the toaster oven.
Shipping is free on all orders, so enjoy that perk too!
