Stainless Steel Gas Grills
If youve decided that you want something more than just an average grill, you should consider buying a gas grill. A gas grill is a good investment for somebody who is looking for more features and options than what regular grills offer. Stainless steel gas grills look appealing, are reliable and will last a long time.
Unlike regular run-of-the-mill grills, gas grills come with different kinds of cooking surfaces including a ribbed grill, a flat grill and a BBQ surface. A few gas grills come especially designed with a Wok-like surface, which are ideal for cooking rice and pasta dishes. Other gas grills have a full rotisserie, which is very convenient for grilling a full chicken, rotisserie-style. If you plan your menu well you could even cook the entire meal including the side dishes on the grill. Some grills additionally offer a non stick cooking surface which gives you greater flexibility and choice in cooking without worrying about food sticking to the surface and losing its flavor.
One great advantage of having different cooking surfaces is that you can simultaneously cook different kinds of foods that too at different temperatures. Your gas grill should have separate burners for you to be able to do this. With this feature you can get many foods cooked in a much lesser time. There are a few grills which even have a warming feature. With this you can keep the cooked food warm while the other foods are still getting ready.
A regular feature on most gas grills is a thermometer that is built in and tells you the exact temperature at which you are cooking. This is a big advantage over other grills like the smoker or charcoal grills which do not have a thermometer and a lot of guesswork is involved in ascertaining the right temperature or you will have to buy an external thermometer to get it just right.
Gas grills also have more advanced safety features than other grills. Propane gas poses a very high fire hazard as it is extremely flammable. But other grills could be equally hazardous as they use an open flame for cooking. The safety features that are present in gas grills offset the high flammability of the propane gas that it uses. Gas grills are also more sturdily constructed as compared to other similar grills.
