Indoor grills offer a quick and easy way to prepare a variety of meals. Throw in the versatility of a griddle as well, and suddenly you have a machine that's capable of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From bacon and eggs in the morning to steaks, burgers, and chops at night, grill and griddle combinations offer a complete solution for cooking throughout the day.

The Viante Indoor Grill with Griddle Plate combines convenience and versatility into one countertop appliance, and costs around $200. With a 200-square-inch cooking surface, the unit provides plenty of room and is capable of preparing entire meals all at one time. Both the grill and griddle cooking plates are Teflon-coated, allowing for convenient nonstick cooking as well as providing for a quick and easy cleanup.

Complete with stay-cool sides and an integrated temperature probe, the 1,500-watt machine has a temperature range of 150 degrees to 475 degrees. The versatility offered by the two cooking methods is extended even further with the inclusion of a glass lid. From preventing messy bacon splatter from getting all over the countertop in the morning, to melting cheese on top of grilled burgers at night, the grill and griddle combination appliance is one kitchen essential that offers something for everyone.
