Healthy and tasty

With modern electric grills you can enjoy the grilling season in a relaxed way

When the sun finally has enough strength again, countless Germans say: grill on and sizzle! Whether at a cozy get-together with friends on the weekend or a big party with neighbors and acquaintances – meat, fish and vegetables from the grill are always delicious. With the electric grills from Rommelsbacher, the pleasure can start immediately, there is also no annoying disposal of the coal, neither smoke nor fire can arise. Sizzling is twice as much fun – inside and outside.

Fast heating, precise temperature control

The “BBQ 2004 / S Gourmet Plus” free-standing grill, for example, combines the advantages of a column appliance with those of electric grilling. Fast heating and precise temperature control make the heart of every grill master beat faster. On the corrugated surface of the high-quality die-cast aluminum plate, steaks stay nice and juicy and retain the typical stripes, while fish and vegetables feel particularly good on the smooth area.

Barbecue enthusiasts in particular get their money’s worth with this device, because the hinged lid with a temperature display makes direct and indirect grilling possible. The shelf with several hooks for pliers and tools and the enclosed cleaning scraper are particularly useful to keep the grill clean. The model is available from specialist retailers for 204.95 euros (RRP). Thanks to its extensive equipment and function, it was the clear test winner in the “House & Garden Test” (issue 4/2012) when compared with other floor-standing devices.

Table grills for a cozy sizzle

Those who prefer to sit comfortably while enjoying culinary delights can fall back on the “BBQ 2002 Gourmet” table grill or the exclusive design variant “BBQ 2012 / E Gourmet Deluxe”. Both models are equipped with a fast-heating plate made of die-cast aluminum and the 3-layer non-stick coating QuanTanium, which ensures the best results and easy cleaning. The two devices each have a corrugated and a smooth side. The fat drain with removable drip tray for healthy, low-fat enjoyment and the removable splash and wind protection are particularly well thought out. The BBQ 2012 / E impresses with two separately controllable grill areas and costs 249.95 euros (RRP). In comparison, the BBQ 2002 has a switchable turbo grill zone and is available for 104.95 euros (RRP). Thanks to their low weight and easy transport, the table grills can be used outdoors as well as in the kitchen or at the dining table – practical if the weather changes at short notice.
