Gotham Steel Non-Stick Smokeless Stove Top Grill
You may not have the room or desire for a full-size barbecue, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get that nice char on a steak indoors. This grill can be used on an electric, gas, or propane stove and provides healthier cooking for meats and veggies than your typical fry pan. The design eliminates smoke and splattering, and by filling the drip pan’s outer ring with water, it catches any fat or juices that arise from cooking. Cleanup is also easy thanks to the nonstick surface. And with a 13-inch diameter and light weight, it’s easy to bring on a camping trip.
