Pros and cons of electric grill
The electric grill usually enjoys the same fame and spread of a traditional grill (not electric), so that often in the families you have both. To use them you do not need a flame or a plate, but simply to an electrical outlet.
Usually they are equipped with two separate plates (that have the same grooved design of traditional plates) that can be closed on the steak, then cooking it in a uniform manner on both sides, for an almost perfect cooking. Most modern models of electric griddles are equipped with such devices eliminates odors and smoke-eating. Also they have to consider the following points in favor and against it:

For this reason are not recommended cooking meat and fish on the same plate. Betterhave two of then, maybe purchasing them further over time.

SUGGESTION FOR MAINTENANCE
Maintenance of electric griddles is crucial for their durability. You can remove the excess fat with a wet cloth and wrung out. Then the anointed do slightly heat the plate and when it is still warm hover over half lemon. It always works. If it is so caked you can use vinegar or baking soda (always on the damp cloth).
If plates are based in iron, the one with the grooves, to avoid using the water and the formation of rust you should clean it immediately after use with coarse salt and cloth, and then grease it out with a little oil until next time, if you pass the kitchen sponge on the warm plate, fat will go away immediately. Some marketers advise you to go after a bit of damp paper towel with a little oil. I advise you to clean it with a damp sponge and dry it with kitchen roll.
If very caked can pour in a little water (just to cover the bottom) and leave a little soak. Remove the plug and passing sheets of paper towel to remove all the fat and then wiped with vinegar also will disappear the anointed. When you should use to keep it free, to use aluminum foil on both sides. If it is very dirty take it to the maximum temperature. Then with a wet sponge to clean the "caramelized" fat in this way the dirt will come off in a moment, if you do not clean perfectly can repeat this operation.
