Muskelprotz saidI couldn't tell if you own the home or not. But if you are electric only you should consider a 220V grill. The items in previous posts are basically toys.
You can't really do any serious grilling at 120V. This grill family requires a 220 volts AC 20-30 amp single phase dedicated branch circuit.
If you own your own place you should be able to run a line from your breaker panel. It would be similar to an electric stove connection.
If you don't own the place but have an electric stove or drier you could make an extension cord. True you live in the US and not Europe so this is not readily available. But the parts can be found at Home Depot, etc.
I concur. And conforms to what I said in my previous post about the inadequate grilling ability of 110v.
But in most of the US you need a certified, licensed electrician to install a 220v outlet from the breaker box. And a property renter may be breaking the lease in having such work done.
If the OP owns the property he should contact an electrical contractor, after exploring 220v grill units on the market. If he's a renter he should first contact his landlord.
I do believe even in the US there are electricians. Shouldn't be much of an impediment.
No impediment at all. Just a matter of realizing it's required by law in virtually all US jurisdictions. Not something the do-it-yourselfer may be legally permitted to do himself.
The bigger challenge may be finding a 220v rollabout grill in the US. I lived in Europe, and as you say, the wall outlets there are 220v, not 110v. Therefore all household electrics are 220v. (This part you have right)
Our heavier US built-ins are 220v, like stoves, furnaces, central air, water heaters, clothes dryers. Some of them "hard-wired" that requires an electrician to install, no wall socket and plug.(Not always)
But a 220v outdoor rollabout grill sold here? Not sure (Troy Texas)
they don't need to be imported And even if one could be imported (they don't)
, the plug wouldn't work with a US 220 socket (you can change it)
. European 220 plugs aren't like our US; ours are industrial size, either 3-prong (old style) or 4-prong (current design). (a detail with a solution)
And any electronic digital displays, timers, or electric motors, like for a rotisserie, made for Europe might be inop here, designed for 50 Hz. The US is 60 Hz throughout our electrical grids. Whether 220v or 110v at the outlet (heating elements don't care about line frequency. A rotisserie would run at 6/5 the speed in the US compared to Europe.. meh..)
The ElectriChef line of grills are made in Troy, Texas. The link is here. It is a perfectly valid solution for many situations. http://info.electri-chef.com/contact-us
Here is the connector for the 4400 model grill. A NEMA 6-50 plug... Used in the US for 220V, 50 Amp max appliances. The other grills have lower current requirements.
