We know you're ready to grill on the Fourth. Problem is, your fifth-floor walk-up affords you no space to grill.
Dang. Foiled again.
But now there's the Lotus, a petite and easy-cleaning grill just for people you. And it can handily KO any George Foreman.
First off, it's totally smokeless. The heat comes courtesy of charcoal, which is ignited by a battery-powered heating element. A fan circulates hot air for better convection, keeps smoke at bay, and leaves the outside cool to the touch. The enclosed charcoal container means that fat won't drip down and cause smoke or flare-ups.
Because it runs on batteries, it's also totally portable. So even if you don't have a backyard or balcony, you could take it to the beach, the park — hell, you could take it to the library.
And the best part: You can use it inside without killing yourself. You still need to have your windows open in a well-ventilated area, but it beats the hell out of Foreman's fancified panini press.
Grill on, brother.
