Guide Review - Weber Q-140 Electric Grill
What makes this grill work is the sealed, aluminum insulated design that holds all the heat in and reflects the heat inside at the food you are cooking. Add the heavy stainless steel cooking grate and you get great contact heat to produce good sear marks on your food.
The two issues that stand out about this grill is the small size and the price. This grill is small because of the heat issue. You can only draw so much wattage so making a larger electric grill is pretty much impossible. This grill is large enough to cook a pair of steaks and maybe four hamburger patties, but that's about it. If you need more food you are going to have to cook in shifts.
With a list price of $279 (but can typically be found for around $230) this isn't a cheap grill (in either sense of the word). Of course if you are limited to electric then this is the best grill out there to choose from.
