3. George Foreman-Type Grill

If you aren’t grilling and broiling more because you don’t have a convenient outdoor grill or lack an effective broiling unit in your stove, join the millions of Americans who have found grilling happiness with the George Foreman grill and its legions of followers. Foreman’s "lean mean grilling machine" is one of the fastest and easiest ways to cook a healthy dinner and can be cleaned with a damp sponge or paper towel. Half a dozen George Foreman cookbooks provide recipe inspiration.

  • The benefit of this type of grill over open countertop grills is that it cooks both sides of the food at once.
  • In addition, there are five removable grill plates; the other four are for baking, a flat-top griddle, panini-making and waffles.
  • This “Next Generation” George Foreman Grill has 84 square inches of cooking surface.

4. Cuisinart Vertical Rotisserie

Many people think that they should pick up a roasted-and-ready chicken for healthy eating. But you can make your own roast chicken with little effort, and add better herbs and other seasonings for more flavor (or a different combination of flavor accents every time).

  • The Cuisinart Vertical Rotisserie, a space saver, easily roasts a 4.5-pound chicken and up to 8 pounds of beef, lamb or pork. The meat bastes in its own juices as it rotates.
  • Fat falls into a removable drip tray for healthier-than-oven roasting.
  • You can cook in other styles as well, with the included eight-piece skewer set, multi-purpose basket and recipe book. You can also pick up easy rotisserie cookbooks for additional recipes.

  • Sanyo makes two sizes of indoor electric barbecue grills: 120 and 200 inches. Unless you’re often cooking for one, go for the larger size.
  • You can make skewers (kebabs); a favorite diet treat. If you entertain with any frequency, you can also turn out skewers and other grilled hors d’oeuvres with ease.
  • A main benefit with this grill over George Foreman types is grilling space. This model has more than 300 square inches of grilling space (more than 230 for the smaller model), as opposed to 84 inches with the Foreman.
