Another thing I really appreciate is how even the cooking temperature is. There are simply no hot spots on this thing, and if I really, really want to be picky, the temperature might fall off a bit at the very edge, but cooking eight pancakes gives me a great visual indicator from edge-to-edge, front-to-back, and there were simply no pancakes that had appreciably different cooking from each other. I both amazed and pleased.
The size makes this something that can be tricky to store - we have an entire double-width cabinet dedicated to just this and my big electric skillet, and we have to tilt the griddle a bit to make it all fit. It's too deep to fit if you turn it perpendicular - the cabinet door won't close all the way. So, be prepared to work a bit to find a place to store it.
But as a workhorse for a serious breakfast cook, I think this guy's a winner.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE - January 2011
After living with this griddle for quite some time, I wanted to mention something I've run into. I still think this is a great griddle - the even heating across the board is amazing, the temperature control is great. But - and this is because I add a very thin coat of oil for browning my pancakes - the non-stick surface gets a sticky residue that is T-O-U-G-H to clean off. I've tried just about everything, and so far, a paste of baking soda and water and plenty of elbow grease gets off most of it, but not all. I'd still recommend this griddle strongly, and the non-stick surface is holding up wonderfully even after many uses, but it's something to be aware of. I am sticking with the 5-star rating, however, as this griddle is still a winner.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE - January 2012
Wow - another year! This grill is STILL going strong, and making 8 big pancakes at a time many weekends. I've also used it for mass cooking grilled cheese sandwiches, yum. I have NOT used it for, say, grilling burgers, but as a pancake maker it continues strong going into its third year. I've just learned to live with the weird residue, and I guess the good news is: it's not building up and building up, but rather just got established early on and seems to stay about the same.

Yes! Today is our annual family New Year's Pancake breakfast, and so of course I thought I would update my review: YES it's still our favorite breakfast making monster machine. I use it pretty much exclusively to make pancakes and toast sandwiches, and it continues to excel. I have never quite learned the secret to remove the "build-up" of oil on the non-stick surface, but it doesn't seem to affect the cooking ability, and clearly it's held up after three full years of use, and we are now starting year 4. It's still a 5-star griddle in my book. The ONLY wear I've noticed is that the plug socket has darkened over time from the heat. The non-stick continue to work perfectly. Recommended.
THE "FINAL" UPDATE - January 2014
Oh, the humanity: we moved to a new residence, and we had to downsize - a lot! - and there simply wasn't room for this any more (as I and others have pointed it out, it is *big*). It made its way to another grateful household when we donated it though. Up to to last, it was a champion. It had a pretty easy life - mostly, we used if for pancakes - but the surface held up for years as you can see from the review I update annually. When and if we move to a larger place again, this will be one of my first purchases to restore our kitchen equipment to what it once was.
I have had one problem: my probe thermostat went. I called the company, they took the date code off the unit (it was a gift from my Amazon wish list!), and sent a new probe out. The warranty was 30 months! Nice.
I say, if you're a heavy duty griddle user like I am, this is the TANK of the griddle world!
It's somewhat heavy. It's big and hard to store. these small issues are totally acceptable given the fact that this griddle cooks great and should last FOREVER. Treat it right, and it will treat you right. If you're looking to cook a big meal on a working, long lasting piece of equipment, this is the grill to get. my family thinks I am now the best breakfast cook. I should have purchased this a long time ago.
- I never have to oil it to make pancakes and the non-stick coating has held up really well with lots of use.
- It cleans up like a dream............WAY better than the other grill's I've owned.
- It gets up to temperature quickly and stays there.
- I NEVER waste the first batch of anything cooked on it. It cooks extremely well from first to last batch.
You too won't be sorry if you buy this griddle. It's worth every penny, and then some.
