    I have an electric grill which is just one flat fairly large surface. The advantage is that I can store it on its side (like a cutting board) so it slides into a small space that would be wasted...

    Not a great book to own IMO but an interesting read so worth checking out of the library as a curiosity. I've been reading a few of the behind the scene books like Sous Chef which are fun.

    You shouldn't use Sweet onions for this recipe. They have a higher water content and don't caramelize well. As Leeham posted, Ina's recipe also advises against sweet onions.
