Meco 9325 Deluxe Electric Cart Grill. This is the grill we will review here because the features of both grills are similar. The 0329 W is equipped with a rotisserie attachment. Both grills work well for the purpose they are sold.
Fast heating up and easy to use for a variety of meats. Many people are very happy with this Meco Deluxe electric grill and would buy it again. This grill is not too expensive and can be used in a place where gas or charcoal is not allowed, like balconies and small patios.
Meco Aussie 9329W Deluxe Electric Cart Grill with Rotisserie is the second grill. Like we mentioned this is basically the same grill but it has the feature of a rotisserie that can be used to grill all kinds of meats in an easy way. Read through the whole review and then decide if the rotisserie is a feature you will use.

Grill surface of the Meco Deluxe Electric Grill.
These 2 grills have an effective grill surface of 200 square inches. The rectangle shape of these grills makes the grill surface more effective than the ones with a round surface according to some users.
Features of these Meco electric grills
This Meco electric grill carries a 1500 watts UL-listed heating element.
The UL listing stands for higher quality. The variable thermostatic controller can be turned up and down to reach the desired temperature.
It can be plugged into a standard 120 volt grounded outlet. The Meco Aussie 9329W comes with a rotisserie. That and some cosmetics is the only difference between the two models.
“This is my second Meco Grill. I use the grill 2 or 3 times a week, year round. It is very sturdy and a high quality product. Most importantly this electric grill generates more heat than any electrick grill I have used before buying a Meco. The amount of heat generated is important for grilling delicious steaks, chops and chicken, that taste as good as if they were grilled over wood or charcoal It was not too dificult to assemble. Since it generates so much heat I found to extend it’s life it was a good idea to line the interrior with heavv duty aluminum foil, to keep the grill clean….”
“We are so happy with this grill! Living in a condo and having it on our deck is the ultimate convenience in grilling. It was easier to assemble than anticipated and the quality of the grill is excellent. Of course the food doesn’t have that “grilled” flavor we were used to, but it’s very good and we’re going to try purchasing “smoked” chips for a different taste. I was a little hesitant ordering a grill on-line, but it was a very good choice and I would highly recommend it….(read more here: Meco DeLuxe Review)”

Pros & Cons
Many great reviews and I don’t feel that it does this review any good if I just repeat those, but here are a few of the ones I found most.
Long cord of 6’6”, High temp, Easy to assemble, Movable grill element for grilling, rotisserie, etc.
No “keeping up with the Joneses” grill, just plain and simple.
Heats up fast for that spur-of-the-moment cooking, Rectangle cooking space is more effective than a round one, Temp control works great.
The grease catch pan is not too good, but you can buy the throwaway once at any store and use those.
Some complaint about the used material is a little cheap and no too sturdy. Others don’t have any problem with that. So that is depending on the user and the expectations.
To clean it is not too easy is one con I found more, but look at the “tips from real users” to get ideas for that.
One con that comes back a lot of times is the assembling instructions are not easy to follow.
But like they say” real men don’t read manuals” or like I read that a lady told her husband to stop looking at just the pictures and read the English version instead of the French one.

My opinion about these 2 Meco electric Grills
It is an easy-to-use and decent-quality electric grill. After doing so much research about grills in general I found that most people who find negative points are the ones that used to cook on the high end and heavily built gas of charcoal grills.
An electric grill is something else and cannot be compared with gas or charcoal. This grill does what is supposed to do. Grill easy to grill meats in a fast and good way.
Taking the price into consideration I think there are grills that are built better, but they also cost a lot more. Although not really easy to find in the manual this is an infrared grill.
What we always advise is to send it back within the warranty period if you are not happy or it does not what is mentioned in the manual. You can have received a faulty grill.
If most people mention that it heats up fast and is hot and yours does not do that. Send it back.
These 2 Meco grills are not top quality, but a good alternative if you are not allowed to use gas or charcoal. I have read many times that the buyer wished they changed to electric grilling sooner.
The ease of use and the fact that you don’t have to mesh with charcoal or replacement propane tanks is a big pro for most users.
Tips from real users
Line the inside with foil. This helps to clean it easier and the drip pan is covered up and does not have to be used.
Cleaning tips: Cover the grate with aluminum foil and turn it on for a while after cook. All residue burns off.
Clean the grate with a brush and your good to go.
There is not much to add to this grill review. The 2 grills are pretty complete. There is a grill cover that you can buy with this grill and as always we recommend that like for any grill.
