  • on a heated lattice;
  • During the convection, dishes are obtained juicy, useful and diet;
  • IF radiation, which comes from burning coals.

To get started, it is necessary to do uncomplicated manipulations. They differ little depending on the selected model.

In most cases, ceramic grills are launched equally:

  • Charcoal falls asleep in the furnace;
  • For fuel igniting, it is convenient to use solid burners;
  • The lid closes, and the flaps open;
  • We are waiting for about 20 minutes and proceed to cooking;
  • Tanders are used to control the temperature.

The disadvantage concerns the process of cleaning from ash and burnt food residues. You can choose special firewood, which burn almost no residue, choose a high-quality grill and expensive coating, having robbing yourself from the burnt products. But still have to wait for the grill warming. It goes on average 20 minutes.

  • Electricrille Easy to work because it does not require the preparation of fuel, its ignition and further purification from ash. However, it will not be able to use in nature, because the network will need to work. If the device is operated exclusively at home, then you can stop the choice on the electrical version.

It is not a street version, use outside of the house, of course, it is possible, but still it is suitable for home operating.

  • Gas Also used in ceramic grills. Such devices are not always comfortable. They cannot be called compact, because a gas cylinder is needed to work. He needs a periodic refueling that does not bring comfort to the user. But time to prepare for cooking extremely few. It will be necessary to spend only a few minutes.

Such useful additions include a thermometer on the lid, fixing the mechanism, a system for cleaning ash, alert system. In some models, you can change the height of the lattice.

        • Ceramic grill can not be cheap, because the material itself is expensive. If you are offered a suspiciously cheap model, it is worth thinking about her quality and durability.
        • Do not refuse accessories, some of them are necessary. For example, wheels for comfortable and safe transportation. Spit will fully prepare a bird or piglet. Protective covers are necessary for grills that will be constantly on the street. In addition, there are many accessories used during cooking. Shovels, lattices, gloves – all this is necessary for comfortable and safe cooking. Buy everything is not necessary, but without some accessories just can not do.
