Troubleshooting Smoke comes out of my Philips grill when I turn it on. If it is the first time using your Philips grill, it may produce some smoke. This is completely normal. If it is not your first time using the grill, please check: That there is no food stuck between the plates That there is no fat on the plates If you have a table grill, check if the drip tray contains water. You can find the drip tray under the grilling plate.
