What is an Infrared Grill?

An infrared grill is a radiant gas grill that uses the heat of infrared energy, instead of a direct flame, to cook food rapidly and evenly. Infrared energy comes from waves of electromagnetic radiation that fall just between invisible microwaves and visible light waves on the electromagnetic scale. In many infrared grills, you'll find the infrared element between the flame and the grill grates. While a gas burner heats up the metal heating element, an infrared burner emits energy out into the grill to create moist, uniformly cooked meat.

Uses of an infrared grill

  • Searing meats
  • Decreasing cook time
  • Creating juicy and tender meals
  • Cooking food more evenly than with a standard grill
