Product Description

Cuisinart's Outdoor Electric Grill with VersaStand integrated adjustable telescoping base 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.

The grill heats up very quickly, and reaches temperatures high enough to sear a steak to perfection. The novel VersaStand telescoping base quickly transforms the grill from storage to tabletop to floor standing use, allowing the chef to enjoy grilling at a comfortable height. The stand is integrated into the grill for added convenience - making easy to store when finished. The grill plugs into a standard household electrical receptacle, and is UL approved for outdoor use. Innovative culinary tools are the Cuisinart signature.

Most people love the flavor of grilled food, but not everyone has the space for a large gas grill or the time to grill with charcoal. Enter the CEG-980 electric grill, a handy, attractive alternative to traditional grilling. Equipped with a telescoping VersaStand, the CEG-980 combines the simplicity of an indoor appliance with the delicious cooking performance of an outdoor grill, making it ideal for people who love cooking outdoors but don't want to deal with the hassle of propane or charcoal.

The Advantage of Electric Grilling

Traditional gas and charcoal grills offer a wide variety of styles and designs--from large multi-burner gas grills with built-in islands to barrel-like charcoal grills--but sometimes prove to be too large, too intimidating, or too inconvenient for would-be outdoor chefs. While gas grills are certainly handy, some people find it discomforting and dangerous to cook with propane. Charcoal grills, while perhaps less intimidating, take considerable time to light and prepare, and can be messy to clean up afterward. Plus, some apartments and condos ban the use of propane or charcoal altogether.

Electric grills minimize all of the above concerns, with instant-on controls, easy-to-clean designs, and no smelly gas or messy charcoal to get in the way of your cooking.

Familiar, Easy-to-Use Controls

The grilling process begins with the easiest fuel source you can find--a simple cord and outlet--along with a removable electric probe with a control knob that functions just like the knobs on most kitchen stoves. To get started, just plug the probe into the front of the grill and turn the knob to "Max." Within five minutes, the heating element will be glowing a toasty red and the grill will be ready for cooking. When you're finished grilling, the knob turns off just as easily. And cleanup couldn't be easier, as the porcelain-enameled grill grate cleans with a standard grill brush or removes for washing in an indoor or outdoor sink.

Powerful Grilling Performance

The Cuisinart electric grill cooks up juicy steaks, burgers, and fish just like a gas grill thanks to the powerful 1,500-watt, 5,120 BTU burner, which spreads heat quickly and evenly through the 145-square-inch grill grate. The compact design produces a greater watt-to-square-inch ratio, leading to higher temperatures on the grate and better, more uniform cooking for your food. In addition, the grill includes a stainless-steel heat reflector in the lid. This extra layer not only acts as an insulator for trapping heat inside the grill, but actually reflects rising heat inside the grill back onto the top surfaces of your food, reducing cooking times and saving electricity. All of this translates into searing hot temperatures and prefect grill lines on everything you cook.

Despite the compact size, the grilling surface is large enough to grill eight burgers, eight stakes, six to 10 chicken breasts, or up to 4 pounds of fish.

Quick, Efficient Setup

The electric grill not only shines when it's loaded with food, but also when you're on the move, as the grill is a breeze to transport, set up, and store. The grill includes the thoughtfully designed VersaStand, an easy-to-use, easy-to-set-up grill stand that keeps the grill at a comfortable cooking height. The VersaStand sets up and packs away in seconds, giving you more time to enjoy the event and less time worrying about the hassles of putting your barbecue together. In fact, the grill and stand are so convenient to transport, carry, and set up, you won't think twice about tossing it in the trunk of your car.

The VersaStand comes integrated into the base of the grill, with a set of telescoping poles that smoothly collapse for easy storage. When you're ready to grill, simply push the button on each VersaStand leg to release the telescoping legs, and then lift up the grill box. Once the two legs drop into position, you'll have a sturdy grill that stands at an ideal grilling height. No more breaking your back bending over a grill that sits mere inches off the ground. And when you're finished grilling, the stand collapses as easily as it sets up, making it easy to pack up your stuff. The grill also includes a secure front lid lock, which keeps the lid safely closed when you're on the move, and a pronounced carrying handle that lets you tote the 17-pound grill just like a briefcase.

Our beach condo is bound by a law forbidding any but electric grills. Most grills reviewed indicate a lack of heating ability. When we bought our first grill we found it to be worthless. This one, purchased when our true griller son was visiting is EXCELLENT! Even sears steaks! We even have to lower the heat. Although it appears unable to grill much at a time, he did 5 large ribeyes at one time with no problem. Would definitely recommend this grill and it's not expensive!

We received this grill as a wedding gift when we moved into our apartment. Since we can't have gas this was a great alternative.

Pros:
-It heats up quickly
-has great heat distribution
-great size for a couple even to have a few friends over
-compact size for a patio or balcony
-grill part comes off easily to clean off (would be great if it was dishwasher safe, I'll have to look)

Cons:
-Short cord (although this is most likely a safety feature)
-seems like it takes a longer time to cook than normal
-definitely does not fit 8-10 chicken breasts as stated! Those must be tiny breasted chickens!
-a pain to clean under the heating element and the drip tray is hard to clean out
-the grill slats have a lot of space in between-veggies slip under!
-short height. My husband and I are short so this is ok for us, anyone 5'6 and over it's a little low for you ;-p

Overall for my husband and I, it's a great option for our apartment. It would be great to bring to a camp site that might have outdoor plugs like some do or if you have an RV, without the gas though it's not as useful or versatile.

Got this grill for my apartment balcony, because I cannot use propane or charcoal grills due to city ordinance. Very easy to put together, took less than a minute. Just needed to snap in the feet, and plug in the probe. I plugged it in and it heated up over 500 degrees in about 10 minutes. I cooked steaks, and was able to get some great sear marks. I am very impressed with the ease of use and cooking performance of this product. I would highly recommend this product

This is an "okay" grill. It doesn't brown meats particularly well, and it is not super easy to clean. But it looks good, and the size is good for 1.5 people. You would have to do multiple batches for many more people. The grease catcher doesn't come apart to clean, which makes it a little awkward. I think if we use wood chunks, we may get some of the charcoal grilling flavor that we miss without them. I'm not sure this grill is worth the price.

this item stopped working properly after 1 use. Way too expensive for just an electric coil that doesn't get hot enough. This item should sell for $50, not $170. Not easy to clean as heating element screws in, so you have to break out the screwdriver after each use to remove heating element to clean the base unit. Drip tray is not easy to clean, either. The unit looks nice, but just not very functional and I don't recommend this product.

Originally we purchased this grill to carry on camping trips on our Motorhome. We wanted to replace one that used propane and would constantly get blown out due to the wind. I thought I'd use it on the patio for a few days to try it out. We found that it worked so well that we didn't want to part with it on the patio so we bought a 2nd one for the Motorhome. It's a great smoker and couldn't be more pleased with it!

All you need to know is that it will not sear a steak. The legs are useless unless you like cooking from your hips. If you live in a apartment and need a electric grill, Buy the Weber 140 or 240. You will get what you paid for and more. Believe me, I learned the hard way. I went through three brands of electric grills before I spent the money on the Weber. Nuff said.

This grill does not get hot enough to grill food properly. I've used it a number of times and have tried to grill steaks, burgers, fish, and vegetables. I've let it heat up for 20 minutes or more before beginning to grill, I've left the lid down while grilling food, but I have not been able to successfully grill anything. I would not buy this again and will probably pitch this one into the trash.
