Appearance and Size
Zojirushi eb-cc15 Indoor Electric Grill
These aren’t the types of appliances that most people are going to want to keep displayed on their countertop. There are some obvious differences in the way that these little grills are shaped. The eb-dlc10 is black and gray while the base of the eb-cc15 is brown and black.
They are about the same size although the eb-dlc10 is a little bigger than the eb-cc15; they measure 20-3/4 x 14-1/8 x 3-5/8 and 12-5/8 x 18-3/4 x 3 inches respectively. Sometimes a small difference in the dimensions translates to a bigger difference in usable space than you might have originally thought. I find that this effect is greater for small appliances like these grills. If you were able to place these machines side-by-side and use them for a while, I’m sure that you would notice a difference.
On the sides of each of these machines, you will find cool-touch handles that are large enough for you to safely pick up the grill and move it to different location.
Performance and Power
Both of these grills are powerful enough to reach up to 410 degrees. The heating element for the eb-dlc10 is rated at 1500-watts compared to 1300-watts for the eb-cc15. The dlc10 has to heat up a larger cooking surface so it needs to be a bit more powerful.
The heating elements for both machines are separate parts from the grill base and surface. On each of these machines you will find a dial that you use to set the temperature – the temperature range is 176 to 410 degrees for both units. They remind me of the old-school griddles small kitchen appliances that my mom used had when I was growing up. As mentioned above, the dlc10 has a 1500-watt heating element while the eb-cc15 has a 1300-watt heating element.

Some people may concerned about using such a high-output grilling surface because of safety reasons. Well, the good news is that there is very little to be concerned about. Each of these grills has a safety feature that will not start heating the grill surface unless the heating element is installed the correct way.
Grill Surface, Tray, and Base
Zojirushi eb-dlc10 Indoor Electric Grill
Unlike the Foreman grills where the grill is angled so that the juices and oil runs down into a try, the grill surfaces for both of these units are perforated. They aren’t angled at all, instead the surface lies flat and the drippings fall through the holes on the grill and in the tray.
The end result for this and Foreman grills is the same- you still end up with a healthier meal. The bases for both are sturdy. The dlc10’s base made out of stainless steel.
Easy-to-Use and Clean
Both of these grills are extremely easy to use and clean as they each have a nonstick coating but the eb-dlc10 is a titanium enhance stainless steel coating. In fact they both come completely apart to allow for easy cleaning. The drip tray for the cc15 is actually dishwasher safe.
Both Chinese made grills come with a one year warranty.
