1. Best Grills: Philips Avance Taste Infusion
This glorified barbecue lets you infuse your meat with lovely smoke, wine and herb flavours via the reservoirs at the back. Only the middle of the grill has the heat for proper charring, though the edges still come out very tasty.
Price: £95 | Link: philips.co.uk
2. Best Grills: George Foreman Family Grill & Melt
Fat drains smartly into the drip tray on this lean, mean, etc machine, whilst your meat sears beautifully in between scorching hot plates. It’s a tad on the small side though – maybe George Foreman’s “Family” isn’t any too peckish.
Price: £70 | Link: georgeforeman.co.uk
3. Best Grills: Russell Hobbs 3 in 1
This capable budget offering sears furiously and can be opened out for one-sided grilling, or used as a press. Features are limited beyond that, and it’s the only one here whose non-stick plates are not removable.
