I just grilled some beef directly on the electric stove element. It tastes great. Why aren't there any commercial designs for this?

its not typically a good idea because you would have to remove the elements regularly for cleaning and they can be a pain to clean and you could end of damaging them over time. If you didn't clean them after every use they would become a fire risk as the oils and fats of food left on them could catch fire.
Dudes, your element will get crusty and nasty
