As men, we naturally like to be prepared for anything. So when the backyard barbeque you’ve been planning all summer is sabotaged by Mother Nature’s sudden decision to turn on the waterworks, you wouldn’t dream of cancelling, or worse, ordering take out. The Cast-Iron Grill from Waring Pro ($150) is a twenty-one pound, 212-square inch counter-top ‘que designed for just such occasions. Using a cast iron grate to maintain even heat distribution, this extra-large heavy duty indoor grill can sear sirloins, roast veggies or tackle up to six burgers at a time. Three temperature settings will keep you in control of the 1800 watts of power, and with each successive use, the grate will develop its own non-stick patina of parties gone-by. A lower level drip tray and splatter guard round out this stainless steel savior, keeping your kitchen clean and smoke free. Making sure your guests do the same — that’s another story.
