Ever since George Foreman popularised the indoor grill, this kitchen appliance has matured to greater levels of sophistication. No longer is it enough simply to make a grill that you can use indoors. Now many grills offer features such as an adjustable thermostat and interchangeable plates. Choose from among the best models of indoor grills and griddles on the market.

Cuisinart GR4 Indoor Grill

With a floating hinge and two sets of cooking plates, this high-quality grill works as a contact grill, panini press, large open grill and a griddle. It is encased in brushed stainless steel and comes with a limited three-year warranty.

Breville Indoor BBQ and Grill 800GRXL

If you want the ultimate luxury indoor grill, this is it. Breville's sleek European design looks like it came straight out of a panini restaurant, and its die-cast and stainless steel components provide 368 square inches of grilling surface when fully opened. It has dual internal thermostats, a high-sear setting and a temperature range that goes all the way up to 450°F.

All-Clad Electric Griddle

If you are seeking a pure griddle to make such things as tortillas, hash browns, pancakes and French toast, consider this gourmet electric griddle made by All-Clad, a company that supplies professional chefs around the world with cookware.

Stainless Steel Stovetop Smoker

In a review of the top indoor grills, the Wall Street Journal choose this hob smoker from Chefs Catalog as being in a category all its own.

This is a device all its own. DeLonghi's two-tier design, a grill on top and a grill tray underneath, lets you grill and broil at the same time. It has an adjustable thermostat and a die-cast grill plate.
