De’Longhi Perfecto Indoor Grill with Lid (Review)

De’Longhi BG24 Perfecto is indoor grill with 16’’ x 12’’ inch cooking surface (192 square inches). It can heat up to 450°F (230°C) and is equipped with aluminum grill plate that has nonstick coating applied to it.

Cooking with De’Longhi BG24 Perfecto

De’Longhi Perfecto cooks well. Warms up in 10 minutes or less and heat is distributed evenly (meaning it cooks food evenly).

The results are great. You can cook steak, chicken, bacon, korean BBQ, mushrooms, vegetables and more – they all comes out delicious. Meat remains juicy and isn’t dried out.

Is it as good as a real grill? No, it’s not. De’Longhi Perfecto cannot get as hot as a real grill (but it can sear meat) and food also doesn’t taste just as great but it’s still delicious.

192 square inch cooking area is perfect to cook for 2 people, maybe even 3 depending on portion sizes.

De’Longhi BG24 Perfecto has a slightly larger cooking surface than most indoor grills so if you have had one in the past and found it to be a bit too small this might be just perfect size for you. Despite larger cooking area it’s still fairly compact indoor grill.

Control Panel

De’Longhi BG24 Perfecto indoor grill is opareted with a detachable thermostat. It has a dial for temperature adjustments with “Off” setting and 5 temperature increments (from 1 to 5):

  • 1 to 2: Used for keeping wood warm.
  • 2 to 3: Medium heat ranging from 260°F to 350°F (125°C to 175°C). Used for slow cooking delicate, thin foods.
  • 3 to 4: High heat ranging from 350°F – 430°F (175°C – 220°C). Used for cooking more serious, thicker meats like marinated meat.
  • 5: Highest heat setting that heats up grill to 450°F (230°C). Mainly used for searing meat.

Thermostat is also equipped with indicator light that will inform you whether grill has warmed up to desired temperature or not. In most cases you will want to preheat the grill for better results.


DeLonghi BG24 has various neat features like cool-touch handles (don’t soak the heat from grill), drip tray (removable) and glass lid that can be used to trap heat and moisture (or to prevent splatters making a mess). It also has rubber feet at the bottom to keep it put in place and prevent slippering.

Clean Up

Cooking surface has nonstick coating which makes it easy to clean. Grill plate is not dishwasher safe. There are some consumers that have reported washing it in a dishwasher without any issues however it might reduce the lifetime of nonstick coating and it wouldn’t be advisable to follow against manufacturers recommendations.

Drip tray however is dishwasher safe!


Overall De’Longhi BG24 Perfecto is a good, affordable indoor grill. Albeit it doesn’t cook as good as a real grill it’s still more than capable of creating delicious results and is very convenient to use.
