If you love to BBQ, but maybe it is the dead of winter and that does not appeal to you, then consider a Breville Smart Grill, this is the perfect alternative to the outside grill.

It has heat sensors embedded in the grilling plate that will sense cold food, and heat up quickly to “sear” that steak just the way you like it.  The flat and smooth bottom plate is also perfect for eggs and pancakes while the top plate is ribbed to sear meats.

This is a perfect “multi-tasking” grill.  So, you want a BBQ style dinner then you would put the top plate down onto the meat to sear it and cook it quickly.  There is very little time needed for “pre-heat” like there would be for a bbq in the dead of winter!

Or, if you are having a cooked breakfast on the weekend, then you would simply use the bottom place to make those perfect griddle style pancakes and eggs.  The plates are adjustable and it can also be opened out to be a two piece griddle.

This unit will heat up fast with a variable heat from 310 to 450 degrees fast.

It has non-stick dishwasher safe plates that are easily removed.

Six adjustable height settings

Some pre-set setting that make cooking quick and easy like “low, Panini and sear”

With this element IQ technology, this Breville smart grill heats up quickly as the built in sensors quickly detect cold food on the plate, so there is not the waiting around for things to heat up.

If you live in a space where you just can’t barbecue like you used to, but love the taste of grilled food, then this is another alternative to the regular oven.  Consider it a bit of a transitional appliance between outdoor and indoor cooking.  You just can’t get that grilled taste in the traditional oven, and this smart grill is much easier to clean.

The plates on this smart grill are “non-stick” which makes clean up a breeze, and you can adjust the angle to let any juices run off.  Even some burnt barbeque sauce has simply wiped off.

This grill is also handy for quick dinners, as you can sear a steak very fast in this unit.  So, if you just don’t have the space for that trusty old charcoal barbeque or don’t want to start the gas one up for a couple of steaks, or you simply don’t have access to one, but would love the taste of grilled meats, then give this a try.

You can get the Breville Smart Grill at most small appliance stores, and many department stores, but you can also get them online at sites such as Amazon.  This way you can compare models and prices and shop from the comfort of home.

In most cases you can get these with free shipping and have them show up on your door step and be ready to grill dinner that night.  This unit is sleek and closes up to a compact size. 

Have fun grilling indoors!
