Product Description

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-980T electric tabletop grill, a handy, attractive alternative to traditional grilling. Combining the simplicity of an indoor appliance with the delicious cooking performance of an outdoor grill, the CEG-980T is perfect 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 tabletop 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 clever design includes two foldout legs that lock quickly into place, so you're ready to grill 20 seconds after pulling the grill from its storage location. The pair of tubular aluminum legs and stabilizing feet also keep the grill secure on almost any surface, including the ground, a patio table, or the Cuisinart CSGS-100 grill stand (sold separately). The grill also features a secure lid lock on the front of the grill that keeps the lid closed when the grill is moved from place to place, along with a pronounced carrying handle that lets you tote the 13-pound grill briefcase-style. To make transport even easier, grillers can opt to purchase the CGC-19 grill cover (sold separately), which doubles as a carrying bag.

I cooked steaks, and was able to get some great sear marks.
Sam Swift
I think if we use wood chunks, we may get some of the charcoal grilling flavor that we miss without them.

This grill NEVER gets hot enough even on the highest setting.

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.

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.

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.

Had to return first unit since the lid lock was broken and could not remove the heater to clean the bottom of the grill.
Got second unit and it works fine. Have used it several times and there appears to be no problems. The dripping tray is a problem to clean since it has a fixed cover and a very small hole on top so if greases hardens in there will need to reheat and poke grease out with a wire. Also tried to remove the bottom of the grill to clean it and found that one of the screws was not removable because the screw was overtighted at the factory and the nutsert is loose in the hole. That is OK so far. Will line the bottom of the grill with aluminum foil to catch the drippings and make it easier to clean. Cooked a thick steak just fine just had to add a little time. Factory has to tighten screws a little less so nutserts do not pop loose making it impossible to remove parts. Overall I like it.
