I live in a city apartment, so I obviously can't undertake any proper barbecuing/grilling activities. However, my dear parents recently bought me a small table-top electric grill that I could use on the balcony.
Whenever a recipe calls for grilling, I've always used the broiler, with fair to middling results. Are these table-top electric grills better than broiling? That is to say, aside from the grill marks you get on the food, are there any taste benefits with an electric grill? If this appliance is not wonderful, I can always take the unopened box back to the store and exchange it for something else.
Thank you for your comments.
