Going Electric – The Most Eco-Friendly Grill



Green Grilling

As technology has advanced, our lives have adjusted to adopt a “work smarter, not harder” mentality. While this has become true for how we communicate, learn, and travel, electronics are also starting to change the grilling atmosphere as we know it.


While you’re likely already keen on using electric stovetops, ovens, and microwaves for easy indoor cooking, did you know it’s now possible to go electric for outdoor grilling, all without compromising on the cookout experiences you know and love? 



A Convenient, Environmentally-Friendly Grill

As you know, gas grilling is a classic way to enjoy a cookout with friends and family, but preparing a meal with a gas grill can be long, tedious, and unreliable.


Imagine a scenario where you’ve planned a barbecue with your family. You’ve spent hours shopping, planning, and preparing meat to be grilled. You’ve timed it perfectly so that, when family members arrive, the food will be cooked and ready to eat. You go to fire up the grill and soon realize you're out of propane!


With an electric, eco-friendly grill, however, this situation can be avoided entirely.

Electric v. Propane Grills


Eco-friendly grills use an electric power source to produce heat without needing a propane tank or other exhaustible fuel source, so you’ll never need to make a last-minute run to the store before guests arrive (unless you forget utensils)!


This method of heating is also helpful during the grilling process. Electric grills use an internal thermostat control mechanism to keep the grill at a specific temperature, giving you more control over the temperature your meat is cooking at.


Not only are they easy to use, eco-friendly grills are easy and quick to clean, leaving more time to spend with friends and family, and less time scraping and scrubbing.


When grilling is done and food is served, you won’t have to worry about a fire hazard or smelly mess from gas residue, hot coals, or ashes. Eco-friendly grills are typically equipped with simple grates that you can easily remove and quickly wipe down.






A Smoke-Free, Flameless BBQ

In today's market, more and more people are choosing to rent rather than buy when it comes to housing.


Often, this means there is no backyard to have a cookout in the first place. Not only this, but more and more apartment complexes and condos are subject to regulations prohibiting open flames on balconies and patios. So you can’t even grill on your balcony?


Eco-friendly grills avoid this dilemma because they don’t produce an open flame. In fact, many apartment complexes are switching to eco-friendly grills for their outdoor spaces to make zoning code compliance easy.


Not only do electric grills comply with these regulations, they also ensure the safety of you and your family during a cookout.


Eco-friendly grills aren’t fired from combustible sources, meaning there’s no risk of gas leaks or flare-ups from your fuel. Since green grilling doesn’t produce smoke from fuel sources, you won’t risk inhaling dangerous carcinogens from smoke from gas grills.





Environmental Benefits Of Green Grilling 

Not only does electric grilling provide convenience, it offers several environmental benefits over traditional grilling methods.


By avoiding the use of propane, you avoid emissions of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and other pollutants. When you grill green with electric, there are no emissions.


So, gas grills produce emissions, but what about charcoal? Charcoal grilling simply doesn’t provide a better alternative. In fact, charcoal grilling releases significant amounts of carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter. Again, when you use electric, these emissions are absent, making it the safest grill for the environment.

Emissions are a significant problem that eco-friendly grilling avoids, but they’re also more energy efficient. Electric grills convert a higher percentage of the energy they consume into heat for cooking, resulting in less energy waste. This means lower energy consumption and a reduced strain on energy resources.


So, if you’re ready to enjoy the greenest way to grill without compromising on flavor or performance, grill with an ElectriChef grill. Your tastebuds and the environment will thank you.
