Why Is Infrared Grilling Better?

Infrared grilling eliminates the hot air retaining approx 35% more of its natural juices. The Infrared Burner utilizes uniform radiant energy that heats the food directly. Infrared technology does not rely on hot circulating air to heat the food. Food cooks faster and retains more juices.

What is the advantage of an infrared gas grill?

Energy Efficiency

As a direct result of the shorter heat-up time, higher heat, and quicker cooking time, much less energy is used. An infrared grill can be up to twice as fast (if not more!) as a traditional gas grill and could, therefore, use up to 50% less gas.

Why is infrared good for cooking?

In short, infrared radiation ensures food is heated via radiation and not convection, and thus provides far more even, consistent heat across the entire grill. The second, and arguably more publicized, aspect of infrared grilling is its efficiency and the temperature of the heat source.
