Not to mention, do smokeless indoor grills really work?
Foods grilled on two of the models we tested did produce significantly less smoke than the same foods when cooked in the grill pan, but that was only because the grates of these smokeless grills didn't get or stay hot enough to sear the foods. ... The other three grills we tested performed better.

Great grill! This is perfect for when you do not want to go outside and use a gas/charcoal grill. It is easy to use and clean. I've used it for burgers, pizza, pineapple (see photo) and they have all come out tasting great, I couldn't tell they were not made on a regular grill.
The Foreman grill has a meat searing option to give you high-quality meats at home, while the griddler does not. The Cuisinart Griddler does have an integrated drip tray to remove more fat than the Foreman grill's nonstick surface. ... The Cuisinart can cook food on low heat, while the Foreman grill can't.
I love it it's great! Okay, I have use this grill twice already and I don't see what all the gripe is about! I did what the instructions says and grilled me up a 1" thick ribeye steak for dinner in 20 minutes! It turned out great, nice griil marks, hardly any smoke, and tasted delicious!
If you love grilling and like the convenience of being able to cook that way all year round, we think an indoor grill is worth the $100 or so it'll cost you. ... Indoor grills are also known for being easier to clean than their outdoor counterparts, as some grills have removable parts can go right into the dishwasher.
Turn the power of the smokeless grill; turn the temperature up to 300 Fahrenheit. Wait a few minutes to get the grill plate warm. Place the steak over the grill plate. Cook each side for 6 minutes for medium-rare tenderness.
