TRU-infrared grills use infrared technology, which turns heat from traditional sources into radiant heat. The technology heats only the grill and the meat on it, rather than the air surrounding it. Hot air dries food out, but infrared grills preserve the moisture in the meat while grilling.
An infrared grill, such as a TRU-infrared grill, uses a ceramic plate as its heating element. The plate has thousands of tiny holes, which distribute heat evenly so that the grill cooks evenly. This feature lets the chef control the grill's temperature precisely, making it easy to grill delicate items, such as fish or vegetables. Infrared grills are also safer than conventional grills because there is no open fire while cooking.
