Santa was good to me once again! This year the man in the big red suit left me a Cuisinart Griddler (what a cute name!) under my tree and I love it!
Move over George Foreman - this Griddler has multiple mad skills!
This baby is a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle and can turn into a half grill/half griddle! Talk about versatility.
I really like the modern, stainless steel finish and the BPA Free, non-stick, reversible plates. You can even buy an additional waffle plates.
You can also adjust the temperature settings from 200°F to 425°F; as you would an oven. I like how the lights switch from red to green to indicate the Griddler is up to temperature.
The self-adjusting cover gives you flexibility in the thickness of food that is cooked.
But, what I love most of all is the fact that the plates easily pop out for cleaning (either hand wash or dishwasher). No more fretting about getting the inner workings wet.
I will say I was disappointed in overall size of this machine. While it's convenient for storage - this machine is best for a single or two person household; unless cooking in batches doesn't bother you.
Since Christmas, I have been a grilling/panini master! So far, I have made veggie burgers, quesadillas and grilled "cheese!"
I plan to test out my Summer Lovin' Grilled Veggies and Reuben recipes, as well as trying my hand at grilled fruit.
