Weber “Lumin” Electric Grill
Designed with urban lifestyles and eco-friendliness in mind, the Lumin is a sleek, multifunctional grill that can reach temperatures above 600°F (316°C) and offers a handful of cook settings outside of regular grilling, such as Sear (high heat), Steam (using water reservoir), Smoke (using wood chips), and Food Warming (low heat).
The grill offers a lot of versatility and can do a pretty good job of recreating authentic BBQ flavors, even on the tiny patio of a high-rise city apartment where charcoal and gas grilling may not be allowed. To achieve this, the grill includes both a reversible steam pan and a reservoir that can be combined together in different ways, per the user manual.
The porcelain-enameled cast iron cooking grates — which are both corrosion-resistant and dishwasher-friendly — are what you’ll probably do the majority of your grilling on, and they do a great job of creating those wonderful sear marks that are sure to pleasantly surprise your friends and family when you invite them over for a cookout.
