Pros:Large non-stick surface makes easy work of big breakfast.

Cons:Surface does not heat evenly.

The Bottom Line: I couldn’t imagine feeding my family grilled cheese without it!


I received this electric griddle for Christmas a few years ago, and it has become irreplaceable in my appliance lineup. I use it at least once a week for lunch or dinner, and it has cut my meal preparation time considerably.

The large non-stick surface has enough space for 8 good-sized pancakes or 8 grilled cheese sandwiches – and with several little ones to feed that is a lifesaver!

The drip tray catches most messes and the removable drip pan is dishwasher safe.

The temperature control disconnects from the unit easily, although the griddle itself is a bit cumbersome to clean in the sink. I like the adjustable temperature control – with just a twist of the knob, I can turn the temperature up or down quickly to suit my needs. Pancakes cook best at 350 degrees, while grilled cheese does better around 400, and eggs require at least 425.

My only concern is that the cooking surface tilts ever so slightly forward. It is not a noticeable tilt until you pour eggs onto a surface that is not quite hot enough yet and they run straight into the drip tray! I’m sure this tilt is intentional, and necessary when cooking foods that you want to drain the juices from (say, bacon), but nonetheless, I find it an inconvenience for me. I usually forget about that tilt until my husband pours the first batch of whisked eggs onto it, and then he’s screaming for someone to get him a magazine to place under the front legs to even it out. An average magazine (or coloring book, in a pinch) works nicely, though, and our scrambled eggs turn out very well.

I do have one complaint about the heating element and that is that the cooking surface does not heat evenly. The cooking surface closest to the heating element heats better than the far end of the surface. It does not cause a problem for anything I cook; I adjust my cooking to allow for the different cooking times. I know that the grilled cheese sandwiches closest to the heating element will need to be flipped sooner than the ones on the other end. A minor inconvenience, really, when I consider how much time this appliance saves me.

Plus, it’s electric, so I can use it year-round without heating up the kitchen. All in all, this appliance is an amazing thing.
