There are several scrub and spray brushes on the market, and they all look great on paper. Most have replaceable stainless steel brushes and allow you to drip water while you scrub, creating steam that helps remove the gunk. Alas, in practice, I was unimpressed. You have to fill these units with water, open a small spigot, scrub, and close the spigot. The steam doesn’t really make that much of a difference. The truth is, I get better results with a simple grill brush dipped in water. Plus, if you leave the water in these fillable brushes, it’ll freeze in the winter unless you remember to empty it (yeah, right) or store the brush in the house (nobody wants a greasy grill brush in the house). Besides, I’m always wary of replaceable brush scrubbers. Last time I bought one, at a premium price, the company went out of business within six months.

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
