Both electric grills and gas grills have become mainstays in the grill industry. These grills make grilling and cleaning a whole lot easier as compared to charcoal grills but they too have their own sets of pros and cons and the buying decision is more a personal choice.

So let’s take a look at the major differences between the two so you can make the right decision.

Price range

For any buyer, an important aspect is a price so if you’re looking for cheaper and durable grill I’d recommend going with a gas grill. High-end electric grills can cost above $1000 whereas you could get a top notch gas grill for $700-$800.

Also, gas grills prove cheaper in the long run as they require less maintenance and repair cost is quite low as compared to electric grills.

Since gas grills provide better flavor they are more popular amongst buyers and thus have a wider range of options available.

Temperature control

Temperature is what grilling comes down to. To get the perfectly tender meat along with the right amount of smokiness and char marks learning how to maintain temperature is important. With electric grills, it’s easier to maintain temperature consistently but they not reach high temperatures thus searing isn’t their strong suit.

With gas grills maintaining a low temperature is tougher for a longer period but they can reach searing temperatures with great ease.

Electric Grill

Cooking space and size

Both grills come in a variety of sizes. If you’re looking for a restaurant-quality grill that can cook for large gatherings than a gas grill is the ideal option as they tend to have a bigger cooking space but keep in mind the gas grills also tend to be bigger in size so ensure you have enough storage space.

Electric grills can range from small countertop models to patio models for larger crowds but offer less portability as they need to be close to a power source.

Maintenance and repair

Maintaining and cleaning a grill after a long cook can be really tiring so if you want to go easy on that a gas grill is the better alternative. Most of its parts such as the grates, plates, drip trays etc. can be removed and cleaned using hot water unless stated otherwise.

With electric models, the heating elements will first need to be unplugged and cleaned with a damp cloth and dried well before switching it back on. For other removable parts, a hot water soak is ideal.

Tip: Do check the manual for tips and tricks to clean the grill and its parts.

Repairing cost of an electric grill is higher as compared to gas grills. Also, with electric grills, your electricity bills can skyrocket if not used with care.

Future of Industry

From the very start of industrialization, humans are trying to make work fast, better and pay less. The owners of industries are always trying to get cheap labor which can do all of their work, even in horrible conditions and do not ask for a good pay cheque. Although this is not possible for any human to work tirelessly and still won’t ask anything in return. In fact, most humans won’t even work if they do not get anything in return and that’s the human nature. And this thing goes against the agenda of those who owned the industries; they want slave labors which can do whatever is asked of them and however it is asked to them.

Automation in Factories

What is the Need of Automation in Industries?

Because of aforementioned reasons, the term automation came into play. Today automation means to use robotic arms and sometimes even robots but in old times it means to fast up the process using different methods. The first and the most revolutionary idea for automation came when Henry Ford invented assembly line. That gave revolution to industrial production and a lot of work started to be get done in much less time. That is one of the early examples of automation but then came big machines, computers, robotic arms and now complete robots.

Possible Threats of Automation

What happens when companies start to use robots is that the work starts to get more effective, and you get quality results. Endless shifts of work can be done by a single robot; it won’t ask for a salary or sick leaves or even for benefits. Robots just do their work till you want them to do that work, and this is what makes them so much demanding in industries. The owners know that they can eliminate all the unnecessary faults and mistakes by employing a robot to do a particular job.

Robots certainly take on the work very well and give you the finest results. But there is also a downside of these that because of robots getting in industries, the humans are getting out. The jobs which used to be for humans are now taken over by robots, and they are performing very well on that part. Now whether the labor was skilled or unskilled both have to lose their job due to robots which can do it all with much precision and less time. In fact, a single robot can take on the work of many employees and will not even ask for the salary of a single employee.

The robots might seem bad for the loss of human jobs, but they also have to be programmed by humans only. Right now, robots are not that smart to take on work on their own; they need someone to program them for a particular job and then only they can do that particular job. The thinking, decision making, and creativity are still far away from robots, and all of that work is still in humans.  So robots have changed the automation game in both good and bad ways, good for the quality products and bad for the human who can use those products but due to no jobs, they won’t be able to buy it.

How will Automation affect traditional industries?

To discuss this, we would like to talk about Hydroponics Systems. The systems usually match the growing environment of a plant by providing light through LEDs and nutrients are supplied in different ways (most advanced systems use liquid nutrients.) Essentially thanks to these systems people can grow their produce in their own homes. This will have a severe impact on the farming sector.

Now this sector is in a very primitive stage, and a lot of challenges have to be met. A notable company in this sector is AeroGrow, and they are regarded as ‘industry leaders’. If you wish to check out the very best this company has to offer you can check out In-depth Aerogarden Reviews for 2017.

So this was all we had to share about the automation sector. This post focuses on things at a macro level and stressed upon the negatives of this sector. If you wish to read about positive impacts, then comment below and we will have that post soon.


Factories are not considered a beautiful place, and usually, we think of factories as a place with a lot of machine noise and black smoke and what not. But when it comes to the beauty of a factory then there are a lot of things which can be done. The beauty of a factory can include the environment both inside and outside, the design both exterior and interior, the cleanliness, the dress code, the balance between human and machine. All these things made a good and beautiful factory and based on these things here is the list of most beautiful factories in the world.

Volkswagen Factory, Germany

Volkswagen Factory, Germany

This factory of Volkswagen is completely covered with transparent glass instead of concrete walls. The factory is made such that every person can see all the working going on inside, this shows that the company believes in transparency.  Even people can visit the factory and some executives also give a complete tour of the factory. It’s one of the most beautiful factories in the world.

GreenHouse Facility, Holand, USA

The main idea of making this factory is to bring a working environment and fit into natural habitat without disturbing the nature. This was achieved by making most of the factory through glass panels because of which most of the daylight comes in just like it would be in any park. The factory is full of greenery and working environment is very refreshing and close to nature. Even the hallway is also a street which connects to all the rooms in the factory and it makes it even more natural working place, rather than artificially designed by humans.

BMW Central Building Germany


BMW chose to go with the old concept rather than following the new trend of making factories as close to nature as much possible. Instead, this factory is made with completely new design and the corporate office, and the factory is made in the same building. This way everyone has a sense of unity while working. The corporate office is at the top levels, and the factory process goes in the lower levels. The design of the factory is made such that the employees at the can see what’s going on at the bottom due to the glass floors. Most of the floors in this factory are made of glass.

McLaren Technology Centre, UK

This facility is so big that is can incorporate nine Boeing 747 jumbo jets in it and it’s not the only thing that’s worth talking about it. This facility has both the business office and the factory facility although factory was incorporated later on and the facility was doubled in size for that. The facility is made along the edge of a lake, and it gives it a beautiful layout. The height of the building is kept small so that the view of people won’t get hampered and they can still see trees on the other side.

According to us, these are the best and the most beautiful factories to work in. Kindly comment below if you know of another beautiful factory that deserves a spot on this list.

Also in the next post, we will discuss the best of a highly requested topic i.e. automation. So stay tuned for that.


There are a lot of kitchen appliances we use nowadays. Every passing day we are getting new appliances for various works in the kitchen, and as soon as you get a new appliance, there is a new model of that same appliance. The technology is one of the primary reasons behind these fast developments and current day state you can have your complete kitchen filled with appliances. From mixing to cooking and to washing, everything is done by one or the other appliance. Now let’s talk about how these kitchen appliances are made in a factory.

Appliance Manufactring

Now every kitchen appliance whether a mixer, juicer, hand blender, dishwasher or any other, all these have different methods to be built. Since each appliance uses different parts and all those parts are of different size so no two appliances can be made the same way. Due to this, we’ll tell you how an appliance is generally made in a factory.

  1. So most kitchen appliances have plastic out casing, and that is one thing which we see first, but it is made almost in second last stages.
  2. First, comes the inner parts of an appliance. If we talk about a mixer, then the motor is going to be the first thing which is made in the first place then only anything else. Now that motor is made with good coil and other metallic parts so that it can withstand the heat which will produce during its high-speed rotation.
  3. After that, a speed controller is made which helps in turning the mixer on at different speeds. Then outer casing of the mixer is made which is made of high-quality polycarbonate material which isolates electricity. This prevents people from getting electric shocks while using it. After this rubber seals are attached manually so that every part gets fixed at its place and no vibrations are there while the motor is turned on.An interesting story of a kitchen appliance is a stand mixer. Kitchenaid, the leading manufacturer in the United States, had a terrible incidence in 2006, where around 100 units of their premium model commonly known as kitchenaid Professional 600, were shipped without undergoing the ‘electric shock’ test. Due to this around ten customers had to deal with injuries after use. The company was sued, and settlement money was paid to all of them.
  4. Now if we talk about the jar or mixer then it is made with high-quality plastic and most of the time it is made transparent so that people can look at the working of blades. These jars are made using machines which spill liquid plastic over a mold and then it is made cold. After that, the mold is separated from plastic, and we get the jar. The mold usually has some markings of measurement and these markings also get’s printed on the jar.

The blades are made with melting metal alloy and forming them into the correct shape. Then the strips go through various solutions and chemicals to make them strong. After that, those are polished and sharpened and again polished. Finally, everything is assembled (mostly by hands). The blade gets fitted in the jar, and the motor part is assembled in a separate casing. That helps to take out the jar to wash and for another purpose.

Most of the kitchen appliances are made in this general way. But still, every appliance has its specific way which a company always follow to make the best product.

If you wish to know about a specific appliance, then comment below, and we will try to give information on a future post.


Hey Everyone,

This is Anita and I have worked in factories around the world. I started my career in my hometown of Budapest where I worked in Car Factory. Since then, I have moved around the world and worked in different factories.

Now I am retired and live in New York, with my husband. Working in factories was a very major part of my life and there is so much information that I think I can share with the world. My grandson, Dave, taught me some basic stuff through WordPress and I decided to start this website.

I will be sharing lot’s of content related to manufacturing and also share my insights on where I think the ‘factory world’ is heading.

If you need any advice you can mail me on and I would be glad to assist you.

I would appreciate if y’all share your views on my posts as I would like to have an engaging experience on this website.
