Barbecue gas or plancha, my heart balance.
The plancha and the barbecue are the two most popular cooking methods of the French.
The plancha natural gas:
It is easy to install and can be fed using a hose.
It consists of a simple enamelled cast iron plate. This must be of good quality to have an optimal thermal inertia: favor the European materials certified food.
Its maintenance is easy: a simple cleaning after each use is sufficient.
For cooking: very little fat is required. The plancha has the advantage of grabbing your food on a high heat. Meat and vegetables are golden on the outside, crunchy on the palate and very tender on the inside.
The barbecue natural gas:
It is usually mounted on casters, which facilitates its movement and installation.
More powerful than a plancha, it offers superior heating accuracy. Thanks to multi-ramp burners, it makes it possible to adjust your heating zone as well as possible. Ready in seconds, it also has a removable hood to limit the cooking time and control the internal temperature. For maintenance: remember to clean and degrease it after each use!
Finally, the natural gas grill offers incomparable cooking quality. This summer, tomatoes and peppers just seared, meat skewers or marinated grilled meats will brighten up your meals and your evenings with family or friends.
The barbecue, because it allows to make all kinds of dishes, is probably a more versatile device than the plancha. On the other hand, for some models, it can also be more bulky.
Think of your neighbors!
A criterion to take into account in the choice of your equipment: your environment. The situation is not the same if you have a large garden in the countryside or a terrace in town. In an urban environment, your neighbors may be bothered by smoke from a charcoal barbecue, for example. On the contrary, an electric plank, more flexible and flexible, or a small gas grill, can be excellent choices.
Do not forget safety
Cooking outdoors is a pleasure. But we must not forget the basic safety rules:
Never allow children to approach heater.
Always check, even outdoors, that the gas supply is turned off when you leave your appliance to sit down.
Watch out for the hose! Secure the use of your grill or plancha by making sure that the gas inlet hose does not get hot.
Whenever possible, place your cooking appliance in an open area.
Finally, choose equipment with the CE and NF Selection marks for maximum safety and performance.
