Product Description

Color Name:Silver

Amazon.ca Product Description


Compact in size but big in features, Cuisinart's countertop Griddler offers five-in-one functionality as a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle and half grill/half griddle. The stylish brushed stainless-steel housing looks sleek and modern in the kitchen and features a wide panini-style handle and a hinged floating cover that adjusts to various food thicknesses. On the base, two temperature controls and a function selector are clearly marked and have indicator lights for quick reference and accurate, no-guesswork operation. Open the cover and customize the cooking surface with removable and reversible nonstick grill and griddle plates that snap in and out easily and drain grease to an integrated drip tray for healthier cooking. The Griddler also comes with gourmet recipes and a cleaning scraper tool. The cooking plates, drip tray and scraper all go safely into the dishwasher. Limited three-year warranty.

The Cuisinart Griddler is actually five appliances in one. A hinged, floating cover and one set of removable and reversible cooking plates turn the Griddler into a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle, or half grill/half griddle. Dual temperature controls and indicator lights make this product easy to use. Dishwasher-safe plates, integrated drip tray and a cleaning/scraping tool make cleanup fast and easy

Use the cleaning/scraping tool to remove any leftover food from the cooking plate. The scraping tool can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. Dispose of grease from the drip tray once cooled. The drip tray can be cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher. Press the plate release buttons to remove plates from the housing.

The Griddler's Many Uses


Contact Grill
Use the Griddler as a contact grill to cook burgers, boneless pieces of meat and thin cuts of meat and vegetables. The contact grill function works best when you want to cook something in a short amount of time or when you are looking for a healthy method of grilling. When cooked on the contact grill, food will cook quickly because you are grilling both sides of the food at the same time. The ribs on the grill side of the plates, combined with the grease spout at the rear of the plate, allow the grease to drip from the meat and drain off the plates. When the Griddler is used as a contact grill, the grill side of plates is recommended. Rest the cover evenly on top of the food until it has reached the desired cooked temperature. The Griddler was designed with a unique handle and hinge that allow the cover to adjust to the thickness of the food. You can easily grill anything from a thinly sliced potato to a thick sirloin steak with even results. When cooking more than one food item in the contact grill, it is important that the thickness of food items is consistent so the cover will close evenly on the food.

Panini Press
Use the Griddler as a panini press to grill sandwiches, breads and quesadillas. The sandwich is pressed between two grill or griddle plates to toast the bread and warm the sandwich. We recommend using fresh-baked bread to produce the best tasting panini. When the Griddler is used as a panini press, the grill side of the plates is recommended. We recommend the grill side of the plates because traditional style panini sandwiches have grill marks on the bread. However, depending upon the type of sandwich you are preparing, you may wish to use the griddle side of the plates or any combination of the two. The Griddler functions as a panini press in the same manner that it functions as a contact grill. The Griddler was designed with a unique handle and hinge that allow the cover to adjust to the thickness of the sandwich you are preparing and to rest there evenly. Light pressure can be applied to the handle to press and heat the sandwich to your liking.

Full Grill
Use the Griddler as a full grill to cook burgers, steak, poultry (we do not recommend cooking bone-in chicken, since it does not cook evenly on a full grill), fish and vegetables. Full grill refers to using the Griddler with the cover lying flat, creating a double, flat cooking surface. In this position, the foods you are grilling will have to be turned over for cooking. When the Griddler is used as a full grill, the grill side of the plates should be used. Cooking on the full grill is the most versatile method of using the Griddler. With the full grill, you have double the surface area (200 square Inch) for grilling. You have the option of cooking different types of foods on separate plates without combining their flavors, or cooking large amounts of the same type of food. The full grill also accommodates different cuts of meats with varying thickness, allowing you to cook each piece to your liking.


Full Griddle
Use the Griddle as a full griddle to cook pancakes, eggs, French toast, hash browns and breakfast meats. When you use the Griddler as a full griddle, open the cover so it lies flat, creating a double, flat cooking surface. In this position, the foods you are preparing will have to be turned over for cooking. When using this cooking function, the griddle side of the plates should be used. Cooking on the full griddle is a wonderful way to prepare breakfast for two or for a large family. The large surface area allows you to cook a variety of different foods at the same time, or large amounts of your favorite food.

Half Grill/Half Griddle
Use the Griddler as a half grill/half griddle in order to create full meals like bacon and eggs or steak and potatoes at the same time. When using the Griddler as a half grill/half griddle, simply place the unit in the flat position and insert one plate with the grill side facing up and another plate with the griddle side facing up. This cooking option allows you to use either the grill/panini temperature or the griddle temperature selector.

To Insert Cooking Plates

Adjust the Griddler to the flat position with the controls directly in front of you. Insert one plate at a time. Each plate is designed to fit in either the upper housing or the lower housing of the Griddler. If you are facing the Griddler, the drip spout should be at the rear of the plate. Locate the metal brackets at the center of the housing. Tilt the back end of the plate and line up the cutouts at the back of the plate with metal brackets. Slide the plate underneath the brackets and push down the front end of the plate. It will snap into place. Turn the Griddler around and insert the second plate on either its grill or griddle side into the upper housing as you did with the first plate.

I loved this product and used it about twice a week. I took good care of the grill plates by not using any metal utensils and always washed them with a soft washcloth. The coating on the plates is now starting to buble up and peel off. I have only had it for about a year. I am unable to claim warranty because I have misplaced the receipt. In case you misplace the receipt Cuisinart wants you to mail the whole unit back to them to check the manufacturing date on the unit and then they will decide whether to let you claim warranty or not. I will never purchase a cusinart product again. The replacement cost for the plates is $40 per plate + tax + shipping and handling.

I have made many items with my new griddler since recieving it - grilled provolone on gluten free sour dough, Pesto grilled chicken breast with smoked gouda on gluten free rolls, grilled pork chops, grilled chicken, grilled bell peppers and onions, bacon and grilled burgers as well as using the griddle for gluten free pancakes and eggs. I prefer grilling my gluten free bread on this grill vs using my KitchenAid toaster. The elements heat quickly. The cooking is uniform. It cooks very fast - beautifully grilled pork chops for supper in 6 minutes! It cleans much easier than my old George Foreman and surprisingly takes up no additional space. The length of the cord is nice - longer than most small kitchen appliances - and I love the hidden cord storage on the back of the appliance - good sized hooks that the cord does not fall off of and hides it completely away. The knobs are also easy to read/use and I like that it has a green indicator light to let you know when the grill/griddle has reached it's desired temperature. The machine does get hot and you do have to allow the machine to sit and cool down after using it before attempting to clean it and put it away - but it cleans so effortlessly that I have not found this to be a big problem. I just allow the machine to cool completely and wipe out with a damp cloth - nothing more. The non-stick coating is durable and thick. I like that the grill plates are reversible - so I don't have to find additional storage for the griddle plates - and that they are easy to remove and put back on. I do feel that for the price of it, the waffle plates should have been included. I love the stainless look of the appliance. The exterior wipes easily and looks like a professional item.Read more ›

I purchased the Griddler primarily as a way to use up make hot sandwiches for my husband, it's a great way to use up leftover meat. I also love the fact that it can be opened flat to cook pancakes and breakfast foods.

So far my experience with it is good. The reason I only gave it four stars thus far, is because the first time I used it I managed to scratched the non-stick coating on the lower grill plate. I was aware not to use any metal on the plates after reading the manual on using the appliance. I used a plastic spatula to remove the sandwiches I had cooked. I was surprised and disappointed that they would scratch that easily and on my first use.

I love that unlike the other appliances that only have a 1 year warranty, this one has a 3 year warranty. I would recommend this appliance but consider an even softer tool for cooking with it such as silicon.

This is a great unit. A bit big for one person but acceptable, and beats the pants off the George Forman type. The grill plates are easily removed (just a push of a button) and I put them into my dishwasher.

The only problem is that the outside gets very hot when in use and on the first use I burned my finger on the side arm of the handle so BE CAREFUL and don't allow children to touch.

There are several "generations" of this Griddler and they all look alike and often even use the same picture in ads-like the one above. While shopping for a griddle we have seen different models of the "Griddler" for sale in various stores and at quite a disparity of prices-and they are actually quite different from each other.
This also explains the wide variance of positive and negative reviews on this item with mentions of "melting" plastic plate clips,uneven grilling, and variations in the grease cups etc.
Cuisinart does not help the situation on their web site by avoiding the issue entirely and apparently if you call their customer service you will not get any clarification from them either according to other reviews I have read. (I spent too much time on this-to the point where I almost decided to go for one of the less confusing George Foreman units instead).

Having said that, the most recent model is a really good, and extremely versatile piece of kitchen ware and I would highly recommend it-in particular the ability to use it in the closed position for grilling both sides simultaneously without "flipping" or in the open position for twice the capacity (requires flipping) is great. Some experimentation is required as to which has the best results for whatever you are grilling.

To sum up, the model you want is the one with 2 reversible plates (some of the early models apparently came with 4 separate plates), "H"shaped burners for even heat distribution (some models have "O " shaped burners that just go around the perimeter of the griddle plate, and an angled grease catcher that slides in under the right side of the device and catches the grease from the rear of the Griddle plate.
