In a world where gas, charcoal, and pellet grills are frequently used for outdoor cooking, Current Backyard made waves at CES 2024 with a ground-breaking option for people who live in places where flames are prohibited. The firm, which has received backing from the respectable W. C. Bradley Co., which is well-known for producing well-known grilling brands like Pit Boss and Char-Broil, has unveiled two electric smart grills that aim to transform atypical areas into enjoyable outdoor cooking areas. In addition to being electric, these Model G grills have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, which lets customers monitor and manage their grilling activities from a distance.
G Electric Griddle and G Dual-Zone Electric Grill are the Innovative Models.
There are now two models in Backyard’s Model G series, each designed to suit a different type of griller. With the two zones on the cooking surface of the Model G Dual-Zone Electric Grill, users can adjust two different temperatures at once. Being the only full-sized 110-volt electric grill available that can reach a maximum temperature of 700 degrees Fahrenheit makes this grill stand out. The best possible cooking results are ensured by the sophisticated temperature control technology in conjunction with the inventive infrared cooking system.
Conversely, the Model G Electric Griddle takes advantage of the flat-top craze by hitting temperatures as high as 600 degrees. Compared to other models in its class, it is bigger and heats up more quickly than any other electric griddle. The cooking area is kept ready for different types of food thanks to the Auto-Seasoning feature, and the clever cooking system maintains constant temperatures by dynamically changing in response to lid movements.
The Technology Behind Current’s Grills
The Technology Underpinning Current Grills CEO Tom Penner emphasized the benefits of Current’s electric grills, highlighting the function of the infrared cooking system in managing electricity and adjusting to a variety of cooking conditions. The Model G Dual-Zone Electric Grill’s special grate design and lack of an open flame help to reduce flare-ups, a major problem with gas barbecues. Additionally, by helping to burn off grease during cooking, the infrared burners lessen the need for frequent tray clean-ups.
Both Model G grills include SmartClean mode, which can be accessed via the included smartphone app or the grill itself for increased convenience. By automating the cleaning procedure, this mode makes maintenance easier and guarantees a hassle-free grilling experience.
Smart Features and Connectivity
Both Model G grills are in step with the times; they easily link to Current’s mobile app, providing grilling enthusiasts with an intuitive interface. Expert outdoor cooks will find inspiration and useful resources in the app’s guided recipes, which are appropriate for all skill levels. Conveniently visible are vital details like cooking time, outside temperature, and food temperature, which are tracked by two connected probes that come with the grills.
Because safety precautions are still a top priority, customers must manually activate both Model G options by pressing a button and adjusting the temperature. But once started, users may easily turn off the grills remotely, saving them from having to go outside.
