For those times when Dad can’t grill outside, he can still be Grill King with this large-capacity indoor grill. Made with a semi-embedded die-cast heating element, the De’longhi Indoor Grill provides even heat throughout the nonstick grill plate. Another key feature: The professional broiler drawer that provides steakhouse-quality results by allowing Dad to first sear the food and then complete the cooking process under the broiler. The grill’s two-tier cooking capability also lets Dad cook double the amount of mouthwatering meats and other grilled foods that he could on a single-layer grill. And the easily removable grill plate makes for quick and easy cleanup. Other features include an adjustable thermostat, grease drain cup and micro safety switch.
