If you have a small balcony or (roof) terrace or would rather not barbecue with charcoal or gas, then an electric barbecue is a good and safe choice for you! Just put the plug in the socket and you can start grilling within 5 minutes! The temperature can be set exactly and therefore is easily adjustable. You will also never need to have gas or coal, which is handy and also cheaper in consumption!
An electric barbecue works with electricity. It is not only an easy, but also a very safe way to barbecue, as you do not work with an open fire – smoke and blowing ash will never be a bother! An electric barbecue is therefore very suitable for a balcony or a roof terrace. A heating coil in the barbecue heats up the grill within a few minutes. After use, you can easily clean the electric BBQ.

The temperature of the E Braai is continuously adjustable from 70 to 270 degrees, so it is also suitable for slow cooking. The removable frypot is dishwasher safe and easy to clean. The lid contains 4 ventilation holes for good air circulation and even heat distribution.
The CADAC E Braai is equipped with a removable and dishwasher-safe frypot. The glass ring - which protects the heating coil against cooking fat - is also removable. The heating element can be cleaned once in a while with some grease-dissolving washing-up liquid.
NB: when cleaning, make sure that you do not submerge the heating element in water or hold it under running water.
