Frequently Asked Questions
Smoke? How does this grill compare to the "smokeless" varieties?
There is some smoke, but not much at all. Hasn't set off my smoke alarm. It's built the same way as all the other "smokeless" grills where the heating element is in the grid and drippings don't drip down onto a heat source. The drip tray is deep and could be filled with water, but the instruction booklet says nothing about it and I've found no reason to do it. I'd be afraid it might cause more of a "steamed" flavor to the food. It seems to be far enough away from the grill top that what's in it doesn't dry out and smoke. After a little soak, it cleans up with absolutely no effort and looks brand new. I believe it's stainless steel. The other brands may recommend using water because the drip pan is closer to the heating element or made of a material that doesn't withstand heat or clean up as well. This grill may smoke a touch more than competing brands due to the higher temperature I think it acheives. I wouldn't have it any other way though. Food really does taste "grilled" and a bit smokey like it was cooked on a gas grill. The older design electric grills with the heat source under the grid are still sold, but no longer recommended or sold for indoor use due to much more smoke, flame and a much greater chance of fire. They won't clean up like this grill does either.
Is the tray removable for cleaning? I have a cheap foreman now and hate cleaning it.
Yes the tray is removable. It's quite easy to clean.
Does it get hot enough to give it a good sear? The DeLonghi reviews I looked at had this as a chief complaint and heat is very important in grilling.
Yes!!! It's one of the featurescI like best. The grill surface is a good weight and after preheating on high you can sear away. I love it
