FEEL THE BURN
INDULGE IN FANCY GRILLS
There’s no justification for buying a $1,200 grill. You can get a wonderful sear on a porterhouse with a cast-iron pan and the stove and oven you already own. That said, have you used the $1,200 Otto Grill? It goes up to 1,500 degrees. That’s professional-steakhouse-grade heat in a package that is about the size of an old microwave. Meaning you could take it camping or tailgating if you wanted to. The result is a steak with an enviable crust that’s difficult to get on an ordinary grill. The trick: The Otto uses infrared heating from above and has an easy-to-adjust cast-iron grate to dial in that medium rareness. No-fuss steakhouse-quality steaks at home?
Cook enough of them and that’ll justify the cost.
