Indoor Grilling with Hamilton Beach

Indoor Grilling with Hamilton Beach

*I received a Hamilton Beach Searing Grill to use to facilitate this post, however as always opinions are 100% my own.

The one thing I miss about Spring and Summer is being able to grill outside. During those two seasons we grill almost every meal outside because who wants the mess inside and it’s nice to spend the time with friends and family. Until recently I’ve tried several indoor grills but found them bulky, hard to clean and of course the house smelled like an outdoor fire pit when the cooking was done. Fast forward through a winter with no BBQ I was about done for. Until the Hamilton Beach Searing Grill arrived and I was willing to give indoor barbecuing a try. While Indoor grilling is fun, sometimes Brady likes to grill outside and the  Camp chef pellet grill is perfect if you’re looking for a pellet grill, check here for more information.

I went in overly cautious expecting it to be a failure just like my other indoor grilling experiments but to my delight I was shocked. There was minimal effort required to set the grill up, it was out of the box and put together in under two minutes and I was able to do it. Test two cooking brats, burgers and grilled onions. To my delight heating it up and grilling on it was easy as well. I do admit that i still made Brady be the grill master, but I was in awe. The grill heated evenly, cooked wonderfully and nothing stuck with no additional spray needed. We served up cole slaw, cheeseburgers, brats and grilled onions and they were amazing, and tasted just like we cooked out on the BBQ Grill.

The burgers had grill marks, perfectly seasoned, and were juicy….what?! I could hardly believe my eyes and taste-buds. The grilled onions made the perfect topping for burgers as well as brats. After a leisurely meal I was ready to tackle clean up. I was expecting a nightmare but the Hamilton Beach Searing Grill was a breeze to clean. It came apart as easily as it was assembled and I washed it by hand using dish soap,  warm water and a sponge. Holy cow!!I was sure of it was going to be a nightmare to clean but was hooked the first time we used it. And guess what??? It is dishwasher safe, double win!!

The next meal we made steaks because the burgers were so delicious the steaks had to be great. They were FABULOUS, restaurant quality even which makes it a double win in my book. While we didn’t do a lot to prepare them, we simply added salt and pepper and let the Indoor Grill do the hard work for us. We simply turned the grill on to sear and let the steaks cook for about 5 minutes per side. We were left with delicious juicy steaks that were the perfect meal in under 10 minutes and they tasted better than they would have on the stove and just like they would have on the outside grill.

Grilled Tequila Shrimp

Grilled Tequila Shrimp
  • 2 pounds of large, unpeeled shrimp
  • ½ cup of peanut oil (olive oil can be used instead)
  • ½ cup of Tequila, any brand
  • ¼ cup of lime juice
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cumin
  • Cilantro to taste fresh is best
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for an hour before you get started.
  2. Thread 3 or 4 shrimp onto the skewers and place them all in a shallow glass dish. Don’t use an aluminum pan!
  3. In a bowl, mix the tequila, lime juice, garlic, shallots, cumin, and salt and pepper. Base the salt and pepper on your personal taste. Slowly whisk in the peanut oil until everything is well blended. Pour over the shrimp and leave in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours to marinate.
  4. Oil the grill to prevent sticking or apply a non-stick spray like Pam. Bring the grill to medium heat. Lay out the skewers and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side. Serve immediately.

I have not tried to grill steaks indoors because I don’t want to set off the smoke detectors but I would love to try this

Laurie Emerson

This would be perfect for grilling my favorite BBQ ribs!

Laurie Emerson

This would be so perfect for where I live as the mosquitoes make it almost impossible to stay outside long enough to grill.


Sounds like an amazing little appliance. So glad to see all the positive feedback.

I would love to have an indoor grill! It isn’t always nice enough to grill outside here in the Seattle area so it would be extra nice to have!

Sue E

I love to cook meats on a grill but mostly now I bake pretty much everything I can

Deborah Caudill

Thanks for sharing your indoor grilling experiences with this Hamilton Beach Grill. It looks amazing just like the photos of your grilled shrimp. If I should be lucky enough to win, I will be following your Grilled Tequila Shrimp recipe to the letter.

Lesley F

With out long winter months, this would be fantastic to be able to grill in winter

Linda F.

This grill will be great to BBQ chicken. hotdog and hamburgers on.

Margot C

I like the idea of grilling things on the side like asparagus or zucchini while I am cooking on the stove.

Minta Boggs

This looks and sounds so delicious!! I’m always looking for new recipes with shrimp!

Debbie Welchert

The last time I made steaks in the house, I broiled them in the oven and the house had so much smoke in it that it made me sick. It would be great to be able to cook steaks in the house again without the house filling up with smoke and this grill sounds like it would be perfect for doing that.


This would be great for BBQ’s!

Sharon Rooney

This would be great to have especially when you are planning on grilling and it rains or in the winter.

Kathy Ross

I love that nothing stuck with no additional spray! And it’s just the right size for two people! I love to grill, but as you mentioned, it’s hard to grill out when it’s too cold and/or snowing. This would be a great grill to have all year round!

Tara L

This would be perfect to bring camping because it is nice and useful and plus right in. I love it for that and so would my family. We camp every year and it would be great for people who live in apartments as well who can’t grill during the summer time.

Lisa Queen

This shrimp looks delicious! I would love to have an indoor grill. We have an empty nest now and this would be perfect for us. Thanks!


Would love to grill up some ribeyes on this


I love outdoor grilling, but I definitely would love to try the indoor grilling product by Hamilton Beach.

These grills are perfect if you live somewhere like Idaho and winters get cold and nearly impossible to BBQ (but I have seen it). I need to get me one of these! Such a useful tool.

Darcy Koch

This is the perfect size for me. And, I get hungry for grilled food year round. I wouldn’t have to wait for warm weather.

Bryan Vice

With this lil gorgeous grill you can grill out anytime!!!!!! love it


Looks like the perfect little grill for using indoors, perfect to get those char marks without having to go outside to my BBQ.

Marti Tabora

I would love to have one of these grills and that recipe looks fantastic.


This is would be great for my kitchen.

Peggy Nunn

I would love to try the Hamilton Beach Searing Grill. I love grilled food but hate the in and out with the grill out doors and running out of gas in the middle of the cooking.

rochelle haynes

This is so nice love to win this

Margaret Appel

The Hamilton Beach indoor grill looks really nice! We grill outside during most of the year, but come late fall & winter it’s just too cold. My brothers love brats & hamburgers so this would be an awesome appliance to have. The oven just doesn’t compare.


I had to get rid of my indoor grill recently after having it for years. I miss indoor grilling. This looks like a great indoor grill. I like that it is so easy to clean and it looks like a nice size.
Thank you for the review.

Crissie Woolard

This would be awesome especially for rainy or cold days when you cannot get how sad to cook out And these recipes are amazing makes me hungry just thinking about them

Tamra Phelps

I love the idea of being able to grill indoors. It would be nice to be able to grill a few servings without needing to fire up the outdoor grill.
