Most ranges have a broiler in the oven that is meant to mimic an indoor grill, at least in the sense that you cook with direct heat. But if you want your range to truly function like an indoor grill, consider buying one with grilling grates on the rangetop (some manufacturers call this feature a char-broiler or a char-grill). Made from porcelain or cast iron, these grates are placed over a gas or infrared burner.
Something to consider: If you’re using a range with a grilling feature, make sure you have proper ventilation above your range. Indoor grilling is sure to produce a great deal of smoke and grease.
