Though the element on the Smart Grill™ is designed to ensure that the grill plate is as evenly heated as possible, cool spots will be noticed. Particularly the front right corner on the top plate and the back left corner on the bottom plate. These are where the connections for the grill plates reside, including the locks and sensors. As such that area is more for components and needs to stay a bit cooler just to make sure everything remains in working order. While grilling, those two sections may seem noticeably cooler. If the grill is being used closed, the opposing side of the plate should make up for much of that coolness, meaning if the front right corner on the top plate is cooler, the front right corner on the bottom plate will not be cool. To make sure that these cool spots do not affect the food being grilled, move the food around the plate just a bit.
