The 50 Best Indoor Grills & Griddles

by Caitlin McCormack | Last Updated Feb. 25th, 2016

Indoor grills and griddles are a wonderful way to enjoy the taste and simplicity of BBQ cooking all year round, and they are incredibly safe when observing just a few proper safety precautions.

The CPSC’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates that there were nearly 3,000 reported cases of injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by electric (and otherwise unspecified) grills that were treated in hospital in the United States in 2014.

The number of actual injuries is likely to be quite higher than this, as the data from the CPSC reporting system only looked at those injuries which resulted in medical treatment at one of 100 participating hospitals, and minor injuries were likely treated at home or another medical treatment facility not included in the reporting data.

Never leave your indoor grill unattended as fires and burns can happen very quickly. Don’t allow children to use an electric grill without proper supervision. By trimming excess fat from your meats, you’ll reduce the amount of smoke produced when cooking indoors. For this reason, it’s a good idea to use indoor grills near a kitchen widow or vent. It’s also a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher on hand in case of emergencies.

With the above tips in mind, in no particular order, here are 50 of the indoor grills and griddles we consider to be the safest, based on available features and average customer reviews and ratings.
