One of the best ways to feed a big family is with a griddle. The large cooking surface allows you to cook more food at once so that everyone can sit down together. Believe it or not, there are a lot of different kinds of griddles out there. We researched some of the most popular products and put together this best griddle review to help you find the right one for your family. First, let’s take a look at some important features.
Type: You have two choices, electric and stove top. Electric griddles are portable. You can use them right on your kitchen counter or table. Stovetop griddles are easier to use, just place them on your existing burners and you’re ready to go.
Non-Stick: All of these griddles have a non-stick coating except for the cast iron product. But here’s the thing, the longer you use cast iron and the more it’s seasoned over time, the more it starts to take on non-stick properties.
Dishwasher Safe: Some of these have dishwasher safe cooking surfaces for easy cleanup. A lot of the electric griddles are submersible once you remove the electric heating element so they’re easy to clean in the sink with soap and water.
Material: There are a few different materials to choose from including aluminum, ceramic, and cast iron. That’s not all, there are some different non-stick surfaces to consider, too, like a copper/titanium blend or even titanium infused ceramic.
Dimensions: These are the measurements of the entire griddle, not the cooking surface. We included this because it’s important to know how much room you need, especially with electric griddles that will take up room on your counter.
Warranty: Most of these are covered with a 1 or 2-year warranty. The one exception is the cast iron griddle, which comes with a lifetime warranty. As always, read your warranty carefully so you know what’s covered.
