There are several indoor grills in a wide range of prices with an equally wide range of different features.
There are open-faced grills and contact grills: The opened faced grills cook similar to traditional outdoor grills that is to say they cook only one side at a time with the top open. In a contact grill, the lid is also a cooking surface allowing for both side of the food to cook at once.
