The Cuisinart Outdoor Tabletop Portable Electric Grill provides authentic grilling performance and flavor. Its 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 a snap - with its folding legs it stows almost anywhere. The grill plugs into a standard household electrical receptacle, and is UL approved for outdoor use.
