Current Backyard will be showcasing their new Current Model G Dual-Zone Electric Grill and Current Model G Electric Griddle at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), running from January 9-12. The event will take place at Booth CP-14 in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Plaza.

During CES, attendees can visit the Current Backyard booth to witness daily food demonstrations. Moreover, on January 10, from 3-5 pm, celebrity chef Esther Choi will be present to demonstrate the grill’s connected features while preparing an exclusive recipe. A media preview is also scheduled for CES Unveiled Las Vegas on January 7 at the Mandalay Bay, where attendees can find the exhibit at table 500 from 5-8:30 pm.

The Current Model G Dual-Zone Electric Grill is recognized as a CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home category by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). The company emphasizes the growing consumer interest in smart home connectivity extending to outdoor living spaces.

The Current Model G Dual-Zone Electric Grill boasts several features. It claims to be the only full-size 110V electric grill on the market capable of reaching a maximum searing temperature of 700 degrees, which is 150 degrees higher than leading gas grill brands. The grill heats up in 10 minutes, and the patented cooking system ensures even temperatures across the entire cooking surface with reduced flare-ups compared to gas grills. The grill is Wi-Fi enabled with a companion app that offers various cooking modes, including manual control, internal temperature guides, and step-by-step instructions with recipes. Additionally, it offers dual-zone cooking and a SmartClean mode. Other features include meat probes and flavor trays for adding water, wood chips, or pellets.

The Current Model G Electric Griddle also features high performance, with the ability to heat up to 600 degrees. It is described as larger, hotter, and faster heating than other electric griddles in its category. The griddle includes an Auto-Seasoning setting for easy re-seasoning, precise temperature control across the cooking surface, and full Wi-Fi connectivity with the Current Backyard app.

Both the grill and griddle are designed with energy efficiency in mind, producing zero emissions at the point of use. The grill is six times more energy efficient than traditional gas grills, and the griddle is four times more energy efficient than traditional gas griddles, based on cost per kWh comparisons with specific Char-Broil models.
