The day I discovered electric grills changed my life forever, mostly because I love melty cheese sandwiches. As soon as I discovered my undying love for them, I also found that I absolutely loathe cleaning them. I would rather clean an entire sink of dishes than have to wash an electric grill. I die. However, since I hate cleaning my little electric grill, I have found an easier, less soul sucking way to clean it.
- Unplug the grill.
Once it’s done cooking your perfectly moist chicken breast, unplug it and let it cool just a little bit.
- Place wet paper towels over the grill plates.
You want to place the paper towels on while the grill is still warm so it promotes some steam to loosen the cooked on grease and grime.
- Close the grill and let it sit until cool.
Once the dried on crud re-moistens, it’ll wipe away easily instead of making you curse the crud’s very existence.
- Wipe the grill clean.
Use the paper towel or grab a cleaning cloth that has been dipped in hot soapy water and wipe the mess away.
No more do I try and scrub away the dried fat and cheese from the grill and this is the easiest and fastest way I have found to clean electric grills. Although I did upgrade in life and this particular grill’s plate pop right off and I can stick them in the dishwasher. Technically, that is easier, but if your grill plates do not pop off then the paper towel method works wonders.
