Cuisinart's Outdoor VersaStand Portable Electric Grill integrated adjustable telescoping base provides authentic grilling performance and flavor. It's small format fits easily on balconies and small patios - great for places that propane or charcoal grills aren't allowed. And although the grill is compact, its ample cooking grate is large enough to cook most family meals - 8 steaks, 8 hamburgers, 6 - 10 chicken breasts, or over 4 lbs. of fish! The grill heats up very quickly, and reaches temperatures high enough to sear a steak to perfection. Storage is quick and easy as well with the novel telescoping base that quickly transforms from storage to tabletop to floor standing use. It folds up in seconds, and is integrated into the grill for added convenience. The grill plugs into a standard household electrical receptacle, and is UL approved for outdoor use.
