If you've been wanting an indoor grill, but haven't felt ready to bite the burger ... er, bullet, you'll be stoked about this affordable find.
Amazon has the 14-inch Elite Maxi-Matic Smokeless Indoor Electric Grill on sale for only $37! This biggie heats up quick and cleans up in a snap. It's no wonder why it has 5,100 five-star ratings.
The Maxi-Matic employs a griddle plate instead of a grate, so you'll still get those beauty marks on your food, but no small bits will fall through! Plus excess oil and grease will simply drip down to the removable tray. You can watch it all happen through the domed glass lid without any messy splashes — all parts but the heat element are dishwasher safe.
And you don't even have to check the weather to plan your feast. Grill juicy steaks, burgers, pork chops, fish, wings, fish, veggies and more right inside your home!
"OMG this is it!" said one grateful customer. "If you're even thinking about it...GET IT! I LOVE this thing!! I'm in the Pacific NW where it's cold and/or rainy more often than not...Of course, nothing beats grilling outdoors, but this indoor grill is a SUPER close second!"
Amazon will give you free shipping. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies to two-day shipping on many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
Less fat, less mess, less $
Fans, who cook everything from ribeyes to veggies and Korean fare on their Maxi-Matic, say they love that they can grill up healthier dishes without all the mess.
One five-star shopper raved: “I so needed this in my life... It has a pull-out tray grease collector... And comes with a tilt prong to help after cooking with grease collection...So the cleanup is a lot less hassle... And it's great for healthier cooking...My rib-eyes are juicy and cooked evenly with the added bonus of less grease... I've since cooked chicken breast and tenderloins and even tried out some roasted corn...Now that was the biggest hit of all... Cook more in a lot less time with a lot less hassle.“
Other customers are thrilled to make their fave dishes for less: "This grill makes it super cheap and easy to do Korean BBQ at home!" they shared. "We buy vegetables (enoki mushrooms, onion, and leafy lettuce) and thinly sliced meat (pork belly, beef, etc). After grilling, we dip the meat in a sesame oil and salt sauce and wrap it in lettuce."
Knocks out the competition
Shoppers say they prefer the Maxi-Matic indoor grill to popular competitors they've tried:
One happy shopper bought this "to replace my old George Foreman grill. I'm much happier with this...The cooking area is larger than 14 inches sounds, and I like that the grill comes with a lid...A great indoor grill for the price." Another convert wrote: “I had two different sizes of George Foreman grills, as well as another brand...Almost everything I cooked came out like leather...This grill, however, cooks perfectly.”
So plug it in and get to grilling.
