Thanks for your review! it will be published soon. Thank you! your review was submitted
Saw other posts about warping, so initially set it at lowest heat and gave it a couple of minutes. After surface temp stabilized on low setting, moved it to 350, then up to 500. No warping at all. Made pancakes with no oil and had absolutely no sticking. Very even cooking.
Awesome Griddle! I had an old Cast iron that didn’t heat evenly and was wanting the electric hoping the heat would distribute better. I was a little worried about some of the bad reviews but figured I’d try it anyway. Very glad I did! I think maybe they didn’t let the griddle warm up before using it? Because I’ve made Briosche French toast and pancakes on it so far and am very happy with it! I used it on the 300 setting for the pancakes, seems to be the sweet spot.Super easy to clean, nothing sticking to it, I’m very very pleased and will be making more big weekend breakfasts! I can’t wait to try other things on it too... but one dish breakfast, or 6 big pancakes at a time? That’s awesome.
I took around a month to compare this to and read reviews of every other griddle you could think of. This one is just perfect and for the price point you can't beat it. For starters, the surface area is one of the largest there is. When you combine that with the flawless non stick surface, almost even heating and removable handles for flat storage, it is simply the best at what it does. No it doesn't have a warming tray, or a splash guard or fancy copper but honestly those would ruin this wonderful, simple design. I saw some reviews that mentioned warped and the non stick coming off. We use ours almost daily for pancakes, bacon, and sausage and have never had a problem. Just use common sense and you should never have an issue. Don't use aggressive metal scratchers or abarasive cleaners, just soap and a sponge. Store it with nonstick side down or just don't store things on top of it. Also, when I turn it on, I turn it to the warm setting and after it warms up then I turn it to the final temperature setting.
I have gone through a couple of griddles in the last year or two. This has been my far my favorite. Cleanup has been the easiest, when you're done cooking push the "bits" off with your spatula (Teflon safe of course), then when it cools down wipe it with a paper towel and it is as good as new. The open edge design makes it very easy to clean the outside parts. The heat does concentrate around the heating elements but that is to be expected with all electric griddles. This seems to do a better job than the other one's I've used at distributing the heat though, and so far I have had no warping of the griddle it self. I was afraid that the knurled (textured) surface would make things stick, but so far NOTHING has stuck. The drip tray is the perfect size for me as well, I find I can cook one whole round of bacon on the griddle on here without the tray overflowing. The only down side with the open sides is it is easier to burn yourself, however it is just as easy to burn yourself with any cooking pan on a stove. After more than a week of very heavy usage I have no complaints and would strongly recommend.
I purchased this griddle as a replacement for a Cuisinart reversible grill/griddle that I had purchased more than 12 years ago (at more than 2x the cost of this one). The Presto griddle is much lighter than my old one and does seems somewhat flimsier, especially the clips that hold the removable handles, so the jury is still out regarding the durability. Regarding the functionality, it has a very large cooking area, heats up quickly, and the nonstick surface is extremely slick. I cooked a couple of fried eggs, ham and toasted English muffins for egg sandwiches, all at the same time. The only problem I had was that I had to chase the eggs around with a spatula in order to flip them -- that's how nonstick the surface is. The surface is large enough that you could cook 6-8 pancakes at once, depending on size. With the handles removed, it fits easily into a base cabinet where I keep my cookie sheets. So far, I'm very pleased with this purchase.Update: I've had the griddle now for about two months, and I use it at least a couple times a week. I am still very pleased with it. When using the griddle, I would recommend prewarming it before use at least a few minutes after the light on the controller goes out to get the most even cooking.
I found the griddle to have uneven heating the first time I used it. A friend suggested I make sure it was preheated up to the temperature I needed. That was the key. Very pleased with the griddle and love the removable handles for storage.
I go through a LOT of griddles through the years. I keep two of them on hand for food prepping, usually pancakes and quesadillas to freeze. I also use it when I cook grits in the slow cooker overnight. I can throw some eggs and turkey bacon on the griddle and have grits and eggs within ten minutes on a school morning. After reading the reviews on this one, I thought I was getting a bigger or special one, but it's really similar to the others I've purchased. It's only a bit bigger but nothing outrageous. It cooks my food evenly and doesn't stick. It does leave a few ridges imprinting on the eggs and pancakes, but it's nothing. Overall, I'm happy with this griddle after my other one started sticking--no matter how much I prepped it. I can get one more pancake on it than my other one but usually don't.
I cannot say enough good stuff about this griddle.It was much cheaper than most of the other options which made me nervous but it's fantastic. We cook everything on it (meats, eggs, veggies, etc). It does have a bit of a textured surface as other reviewers have mentioned but that doesn't affect anything.Easy to clean, quick to heat up, even cookeryIf I had to give it a downside, it would be the size. It's just a bit too large to fit in any of our kitchen cabinets. So it has to live on top of the stove which is fine for us because we tend to use it instead of the stove but can be in the way on rare occasions.
This is the best griddle I've owned. It is my fourth in 24 years. I've not had any real issues with it. I do wish the cutout where the plug goes was rounded like the other three corners. That would provide a bit more room. This is a nice large griddle. Plenty of room for breakfast for a family of five in the morning.I didn't anticipate getting a non stick surface. I cooked an egg on it because it appeared to be non stick. I was very surprised at how well it did. It's been three months and I've not put oil on it while cooking to keep things from sticking.
I'll make this relatively quick: the *only* problem with this griddle is that the sidewalls aren't very high. I'd like an inch or so more than what's there, but that's about it. (Also, I prefer a griddle without a non-stick surface, but I couldn't find one of those)As to its features, the removable legs are great. They really do make cleaning and storing a lot easier. The thermostat on the heating element works fine and keeps a consistent temperature. I did accidentally find out that if I want to microwave something while using the griddle, I can't put the griddle on the same circuit as the microwave because it blows the breaker. Not surprising, really.Don't be shy with it! You can make some kickass steaks on it. Cook at 375 if you want the medium ranges, probably drop to 350 for well done (to avoid burning), but if I had to do well done, I'd do 12 minutes at 375 and then wrap in foil and toss in the oven for another 6 minutes. I've done shawarma, pork chops, and several steak meals, so far. I haven't made any breakfast with it yet, because we don't typically make breakfast anyway. :)When I find the right spatula, I'll give it a go with street tacos, and maybe some Mongolian bbq. I suppose you could do boring burgers and hot dogs on it, but if you're that boring of a person, you should save your money and buy something cheaper that doesn't command the kind of honor and respect that this griddle commands. It's now my favorite appliance in a kitchen that doesn't have many because so many kitchen appliances suck, or only do half of the job they claim to do.I don't normally give glowing reviews, so if you're still not sure if you want to buy this after reading mine, maybe you should buy yourself a gift card instead. :)
We have had this for a year now. It is perfect for camping or home. I like that the handles easily detach for storage, making it compact. It is thinner and lighter than the old one we had, and I was concerned that it would heat evenly. I does heat evenly, cooking pancakes, bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, all of it comes out cooked even. The surface has a slight texture, but nothing sticks, not even pancakes or eggs, both slide off easily. I wash it with very little soap, using mostly hot water to keep it clean. After a years use, it remains in like-new condition.
I needed a new one as I cook eggs most every day and do pan cakes for the family every other week at least. This cooks very nicely and evenly, so I'm not sure why the reviewer said it does not, (main reason I'm writting this review). It takes longer to heat up than the indicator will show, so the first batch is normally a bit darker but they all come out the same which is great and it's a big skillet. I make about 6 pan cakes at a time with no problems when flipping.Would buy again, it's a good buy at a higher price and a fantastic buy at it's low price.
