Electric Grills Give Balcony Barbecue Great Flavor


What does a grill do best? It cooks food with the unique flavor only a grill can create. But a high-quality grill can do so much more. It can cook food with maximum flavor.


The secret to achieving maximum grilling flavor in your food is not whether to use coal, or wood, or gas, like some people think. Actually, the traditional approach masks the true flavor of the food with combustion products. The flavor comes from the natural juices dripping on the red-hot heating elements, providing great smoke flavor, not the fuel used to cook it.


Also, a great grill can both slow cook succulent chicken and fish dishes, and sear steaks and burgers to perfection. Slow cooking at the right temperature steeps your food in its own juices, so that every piece of chicken is tender, juicy, and packed with flavor. Veggies become luscious side dishes that everyone will clamor for.


Don't Compromise: Get the Best Grill for Your Apartment Balcony


Cooking on high heat is the secret to delicious steaks and burgers at your favorite steakhouse. It’s all about searing your meat. Searing is the process of browning the surface of meat until two chemical reactions — Maillard reaction and caramelization — transform it into a rich, complex, and savory delight.

It also adds those telltale grill marks and that satisfying crunch on the surface. Your guests will be beyond impressed with your grilling skills, while the tantalizing smell of perfectly grilled steaks waif over to your neighbors’ apartment, creating just a little tinge of jealousy.

Achieving this level of grilling perfection is only possible with the Safire flameless electric grill. Why? For two reasons: You can control the heat while getting the grill hot enough, and the Safire allows for grilling where charcoal and propane are prohibited.


ElectriChef electric grills can reach temperatures of 600° — which is optimal for that searing everyone loves. Plus, thanks to pro-level stainless steel construction and high-quality heating elements, you can control the exact temperature of your entire grill — so you’re always cooking at the exact right temperature.


Simply stated, an ElectriChef grill makes it easy to just turn on, set the temperature, and start grilling the most delicious food you’ve ever grilled in your life – even in a confined space!
