Guide Review - The Outdoor Greatroom Company Legacy 20i/e Electric Grill
First of all, The Outdoor Greatroom Company grills all run on what is call the "Cook Number" System. Basically you place a piece of meat on the grill and turn a dial to the desired doneness and insert the meat thermometer probe. The grill will then tell you when the food you are cooking is done.
Secondly this grill uses a heated sear plate to maximize searing power. You would place a steak on this searing plate for about a minute per side then finish it off on the grilling section of the grill after putting in the temperature probe. This is designed to give you something similar to a restaurant steak.
Hopefully you get the picture now. This small, portable version of the Fire Stone cook number grill is designed for people who don't have the option of gas or charcoal. Fire Stone does make a gas version of this grill, but if you are one of those people who live in a place where other grills are not allowed this is a good grill for you to consider.
Probably the most impressive thing that Fire Stone has done with this grill is to get good cooking power out of an electric grill. For those of us living in the 120-volt world, electric has never been a very good option because the grills simply couldn't generate enough heat. This grill can put a sear on a steak with the unique searing system and still manage to grill virtually anything else. The grill does heat up a little slowly and cooking times are longer than normal, but it still does an excellent job.
If you need an electric grill and can afford this grill (around $580USD) then this is definitely a grill for you to look at. There is a black unit for $450USD.
