Does anyone know if electric grills are supposed to generate a lot of heat, and if so, if there is anything to minimize this (both from a safety and a comfort perspective)?
I just tried a Swissmar raclette grill, which sits on a SS and plastic base with legs, and it heated up the surrounding marble tabletop to an alarming degree after just 30 minutes of use - i.e., the marble was hot to the touch. When I placed the grill on a wooden table, the table also heated up, but felt less hot.
Has anyone experienced this with any grills (raclette or not)? Should I be concerned? I supposed I could put some cloth/insulator on top of the table each time, but would really rather not.
Many thanks in advance!
