The Breville Smart Grill's Element IQ technology bridges the gap betweenindoor and outdoor at an unrivaled new level. Heat sensors embedded in thegrill plates compensate for the temperature drop when cold food is placed ontothe pre-heated surface. The sensors then detect this heat drop and compensateby injecting heat for rapid recover back to the desired cooking temperatures.The 1800-watt embedded heating design ensures maximum heat into the plates forfaster cooking and reduced pre-heating time. This creates a BBQ-quality searand sizzle. The flat bottom plate is suitable for eggs and pancakes while thetop plate is ribbed to sear meats. Plate positions are interchangeable and canbe extended into an opened, flat 'BBQ Mode.' _The Breville BGR820XL Smart Grill uses Element IQ technology and an embeddedelement heating system to sear meat on your countertop that tastes just asgood as meat seared on the barbecue (closeup on right)._ Why the Breville Smart Grill? Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance. The BrevilleSmart Grill began with the simple fact that searing meat requires continuoushigh heat. What kind of machine cooks as well as a barbecue, but cleans fastlike a frypan? The answer is the Breville Smart Grill, which allows you tosear meat indoors at a high consistent temperature without making a mess. Ituses Element IQ technology and an 1800W heating system to electronicallydetect heat loss and provide rapid heat recovery. Maintaining High Heat for Better Cooking Countertop grills experience a drop in temperature when the cold meat oringredients are introduced to the pre-heated surface. Even if they start offat the right temperature, most countertop grills can't recover from this heatloss, heating up again slowly. This means less efficient cooking and toughermeat. The BGR820XL uses a smart technology called Element IQ to detect thedrop in temperature and inject more heat for a rapid recovery back to thedesired cooking temperatures. Also, embedded elements in its grill plates help the grill maintain intenseheat and recover from heat loss. The elements are cast into the platesthemselves, which means that most of the heat generated by the elements istransferred to the plates instead of being lost (see below). That means lesstime to pre-heat and also rapid temperature recovery. Other Features: Easy cleaning and Versatility In addition to Element IQ and embedded plates, the Breville BGR820XL SmartGrill has numerous features: the top plate has six different adjustableheights that can be used for large sandwiches, small sliders, open-facedmelts, or anything inbetween; the plates are removable for easier cleaning andcan be interchanged depending on your needs (so the ribbed plate is either onthe bottom or the top). The plates are nonstick plates made from cast aluminumcoated with titanium infused Quantanium, for oil-free cooking and easy cleanup. The housing is stainless steel, with die-cast arms. The base can be tilted at an angle to drain, or lay perfectly flat for eggs,pancakes, and paninis. You can use it closed and use it to grill like a Paninipress, or open it 180 degrees into barbecue mode, in which fat is drained fromboth plates into the drip tray. There are three different temperature settings(low, Panini, and sear, ranging from 320F to 450F), temperature and timecontrol dials, and a countdown timer and sound alert. Exposed Heating Elements vs. the BGR820XL's Embedded Heating Elements _Exposed Heating Elements, typical of many grills_ _Embedded Heating Elements, like on the BGR820XL Smart Grill_ Exposed Heating Elements: Heat loss Many plates have exposed heating elements, where the grill plate sits directlyon top of the heating element. Exposed elements lose much of the heat thatthey generate, instead of transferring the heat to the plate. This means thegrill requires more time to heat up and more time to recover from heat loss,which extends cooking time and yields tougher meats. Embedded Heating Elements: Heat transfer The BGR820XL has grill plates with integrated heating elements, where theelements are embedded in the plates themselves. Rather than losing much of theheat that they generate, the heat is transferred directly to the plate. Thismeans the grill requires less time to heat up and less time to recover fromheat loss, which decreases cooking time, increases searing temperatures, andyields tenderer meats. Two modes for two different cooking styles _Panini Mode_ _Barbecue Mode_ Panini Mode In Panini mode, use the top and bottom plates to press Paninis or grillingredients on two sides at once. The height of the top plate from the bottomis adjustable, allowing you to press both large sandwiches and small sliders.There is a ribbed plate and a flat plate, and both plates are removable andinterchangeable so you can choose the plate that suits your cooking style andclean the plates more easily. Barbecue Mode In barbecue mode, open the grill plates 180 degrees so the Smart Grill liesflat, and use it to grill and sear meats and vegetables. This doubles yourcooking area, and also presents the option of grilling on both the flat plateand the ribbed plate. Additional ribbed plates and flat plates are availablefor purchase on Amazon if you'd prefer to have a uniform cooking surface inbarbecue mode. Temperature Control and Timing _The backlit LCD screen is blue when the grill is not hot_ _The backlit LCD screen is orange when the grill is pre-heating or cooking_ Timer Control Dial (Located on the left side of the Smart Grill front) You can set the timer foryour preferred cooking time, and the Smart Grill will alert you when time isup. Temperature Control Dial (Located on the right side of the Smart Grill front) You can set the BrevilleSmart Grill in three different temperature settings: low, Panini, and sear,which range from temperatures of 320F to 450F. If you'd prefer to view thetemperature in Celsius, flip the temperature conversion button. Element IQ auto-adjustment Element IQ detects the drop in temperature when you introduce cold ingredientsto the pre-heated surface and automatically injects more heat to bring theSmart Grill back up to temperature and compensate for heat-loss.
