12 best electric grinders

Fragrant skewers all year round. Dedicated to lovers of kebab!

Before writing about the best barbequeers, I want to figure out - is this device necessary at all? All electric BBQ machines have a number of disadvantages, the main of which is that the kebab on the grill still tastes better! Also, people don’t like that it’s quite difficult to wash all such devices, and there’s not so much barbecue - a large family, and even less you feed a company. Therefore, many, having tried a couple of times, throw the device away and regret the wasted money.

Sorry about the purchase, however, not all. Because on the grill, of course, tastier - but not always the weather and the situation allows it to dissolve, but in the electric BBQ grill, you can also cook perfectly.

By what criteria did you choose?

Almost all electric BBQ machines are similar to each other, so choosing the best is not easy. We have preferred time-tested models made of stainless steel. We also chose those of them in which the heating element is located predominantly in the center, which contributes to uniform roasting of meat. And, of course, they paid attention mainly to domestic models, which proved to be excellent among the buyer.

Which manufacturer of electric BBQ stoves are better?

The electric BBQ is still a device, more focused on the Russian market. In addition, the tradition of manufacturing such devices in domestic enterprises stretch from the time of the USSR. Therefore, it is not surprising that in our list of contestants the leading positions are occupied by the models of the trademarks “Hydroagregat” (Caucasus-5 and XXL), Chudesnitse (EL-8) and the Great Rivers (the Russian brand is the assembly of the PRC). However, foreign brands (mostly Chinese) still managed to master this market. The rating was supplemented by the presence of the Kitfort and Smile brands, which are represented by quite successful models of electric barbecues and make up worthy competition to Russian companies.

Which kebab is better to buy?

So, as you can see, electric BBQs do not differ much from each other. We advise you to pay attention to reviews and product packaging. If the quantity of the prepared product is important for you, choose the kebab-maker with the highest load. And if you want to cook not only kebabs, but also grilled chicken or fish, you can use a multifunction electric grill.

Tricks for making delicious kebabs:
The main thing that distinguishes the kebab from the electric grill from cooked on the grill is no smell of smoke. There are several ways to remedy the situation.
Method 1. Marinate with liquid smoke seasoning.
Method 2 Buy a bit of real smoked bacon on the wood and wrap the kebab with ribs of bacon or string small pieces on the skewers along with the meat.
Method 3. On the onion rings put a little sawdust (eg, cherries) or juniper cones.
The choice is yours, enjoy your shopping!
