* BBQ inside this winter
* The best electric and stove top grills
* Highly-rated options starting at just $20
You no longer need to go outside to grill a perfect steak. We found a handful of indoor grills that yield great steaks right in your kitchen.
With winter weather making it too hard to stand outside and barbecue, this should come as great news for all certified carnivores and grill masters. Steaks just aren’t the same on the skillet, and for most of us, shelling out $50 at a steakhouse isn’t an option. This leaves us twiddling our thumbs and eating roast chicken all winter, which can get tiring.
So if you want to satisfy that mid-winter steak craving like us, check out the indoor grills below. They’re highly-rated, and start at just $20.
1. Kitchen + Home Stove Top Smokeless Grill
If you’re on a tight budget, grab this clever stove top grill. Plonk it on top of your stove, add water to the integrated drip pan, and cook a great steak without any smoke or grease splattering. And when you’re done, simply put the grill in the dishwasher to clean it for next time.
2. Elite Platinum Indoor Electric Grill
Electric grills are a great option for indoor steak cooking. We recommend this one from Elite Platinum because it’s big enough for multiple servings (12” x 16”), quickly climbs to 400°F, and features detachable pieces for easy cleaning.
3. Calphalon Square Grill Pan
Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. This grill pan goes directly on your stove, cooking authentic BBQ with deep ridges and a tri-layer nonstick coating.
4. Hamilton Beach Electric Indoor Grill
This indoor grill from Hamilton Beach turns up your indoor BBQing abilities. It has a temperature control that ranges from 200° to 450°, allowing you to sear meats and veggies. It’s also dishwasher safe, making cleanup a breeze.
5. George Foreman Indoor Electric Grill
The best indoor electric grill is this one from George Foreman. It features enough room for 15 servings, comes with its own stand, and has 5 heat settings to perfectly cook a range of foods. All these features – along with its durable, high-quality build – has garnered the grill 4.5 stars from a whopping 2,600 reviewers on Amazon.
