First Atlanta, Georgia sends approval, now Fort Lauderdale has added their stamp of approval to the use of electric grills on balconies. Slowly but surely Dimplex is gaining formal approval from major cities all over North America.
The City of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Fire Rescue Department has just notified Dimplex that PowerChef Electric Grills shall be permitted for use on balconies where hibachi, gas-fired grills, charcoal grills and other cooking devices are not. According to the 2007 Florida Fire Prevention Code – NFPA 1 Chapter 10 Section 10.11.7 Listed electric ranges, grills or similar electric apparatus shall be permitted on any balcony or under any overhanging portion or within 10 feet of any structure.
Electric Grills can be legally used on balconies because they do not produce open flames. The EvenSear technology utilizes electricity to sear food on contact while never igniting fats or grease. This means you can grill safely with no risk of fire or smoke on your balcony or porch.
It won’t be long now before electric grills are common place everywhere.
