Basically, I like the Griddle. Two features are excellent and two could be improved.
Great features: 1) The heating element ribbons back and forth providing great heat distribution for the Griddle Plate. 2) The Griddle plate is easily removed for easy handling and cleaning. Don't have to put the entire unit in the sink to clean - just the surface plate.
Features that could be improved: 1) The electrical cord is permanently attached to the back center of the unit and is only a couple feet or so in length. So you need to place the unit close to a wall plug outlet. 2) The Thermostat unit is well attached but the temperature knob seems a bit loose.
Overall - Love the large even heating surface and ability to remove the plate for cleaning.

HASH(0xa14280d8) out of 5 stars Heat isn't consistent and non-stick surface is short-lived with this Oster griddle April 18 2013
By Catrinka - Published on
I bought this griddle last year as a replacement for our 15 year old Presto non-stick model. While our Presto was still working fine, the cord had starting getting really hot so I was concerned about continuing to use it for safety reasons. Target had this Oster model on sale for $50 so I snapped it up.

The first few times that I used it, I was completely satisfied. The heat appeared to be adequately dispersed throughout the cooking area and the non-stick surface was functioning well. However, after those first few uses, the non-stick surface began to be less effective. It wasn't that I saw any of the surface flaking off...the food just began to start sticking more and more. I mostly used it for big breakfasts 1-2 times a week; and after 2-3 months, it offered little remaining non-stick capabilities. Even using a fair amount of butter or canola oil still left eggs, pancakes, and french toast sticking. I really don't think it could have been anything I did to wear off the surface. I always used the appropriate silicone or nylon utensils and I carefully hand washed the removable griddle surface rather than sticking it in the dishwasher (as it states you can).

I could maybe have lived with this problem for awhile; but the griddle has other major problems too. While its heat does seem to be adequately distributed over the surface, the griddle can't maintain a constant temperature over time...not even close. So, it's fine if I'm only fixing a small breakfast for 2-3 people and only need the temperature to remain for 10-12 minutes. However, with college kids coming home with extra friends, I often have to fill the surface multiple times with pancake batter or french toast. After the first batch, the griddle has started to lose heat and I have to turn it off, unplug it, and wait a few minutes...before turning it back on, allowing it time to reheat, and doing the next batch. A MAJOR pain in the patootie. I bought a new Cuisinart non-stick griddle that is working great so far.

While I normally donate any of our no-longer-used home items, I actually tossed this griddle into the trash...I can't bring myself to wish this piece of junk on anyone.

HASH(0xa14284e0) out of 5 stars Not quite... July 19 2011
By E. Neal - Published on
I bought this to replace a Presto that wore out. I use my griddle daily and for a variety of foods.
First, the good. I found the non-stick coating on mine to be excellent. Perhaps Oster improved their coating in recent times. After 6 uses, it remains like-new and everything just slides off (salmon, eggs, bacon). I hand cleaned my top, even though it says dishwasher safe. I found the griddle to heat evenly. I like the removable top for cleaning ease. Now, the bad. Temperature control is horrible. As a result of the removable top, the thermometer is buried in the base of the appliance and does not register the temperature of the top at all. After preheat, the temperature of the grill surface takes a slow dive and never really gets hot again. The griddle is slow to heat up, compared to similar-sized Prestos. The drip pan is smallish (does not hold fat from 1 lb of bacon) and is hard to tell when it is getting full since it is "L" shaped.
Overall, this griddle is a really good idea. If Oster could fix the heat control issue, this would be a winner. For me, I am going to exchange this for a Presto and pocket about $25.

HASH(0xa14fb93c) out of 5 stars Even heat, but cooks way too slowly & is hard to clean July 9 2011
By Will Pearce - Published on
AFter our 20-year-old Presto electric griddle died recently, I spent a lot of time reading reviews on just about all of the sub-$50 electric griddles on the market. The biggest problem reported in this size range is a lack of even heating of the griddle surface, probably because of the combination of a thin cooking surface (the current products, including Prestos, have thinner, lighter surfaces than our old Presto did) and the "single loop" style of heating element (that tends to leave a cooler area in the middle of the surface).

As this Oster griddle was sold by Target, I decided to check a local store to see if one was in stock, so that I could see how it was constructed. There was one in the store, and imagine my surprise when I saw that it had a serpentine heating element--something I hadn't seen at this price point in well over a decade (what can I say--I'm an engineer, and I love to make pancakes, so I tend to look at these things). The cooking surface seemed a bit small, but I decided to give this one a try (for $5 less than the Amazon price; and, as it turns out, the size was the same as our old Presto).

There were things that I really liked about this griddle: The front-mounted heat control, the nice handles, the non-skid pads on the feet, the removable griddle surface (machine washable, though I'd always wash it by hand; as you'll see, machine-washing probably won't get it clean).

Ultimately, though, there were too many draw-backs:

* Even after pre-washing the griddle surface and seasoning it with vegetable oil (as directed) and pre-coating with a vegetable oil spray, the non-stick surface performed poorly. Food release was OK, but bacon "scum" couldn't be easily scraped off with a nylon spatula, and clean-up was a chore--it seems that either the oil or the bacon grease wanted to bond to the surface. My wife complained about the amount of effort it took with a non-stick scrubber sponge to clean the griddle surface, and finally had me take over (and it was still a bit of work for me, too).

* The heat distribution on the griddle surface did seem to be more even than on our old Presto, but the cooking temperature was way off from what the heat control said--I doubt that it ever got above 300-325 degrees, even after preheating at 400 for 20 minutes (as directed in the manual; and yes, the cooking surface was latched down as tight as it gets). Consequently, it took forever to cook both bacon and pancakes--my wife says easily twice as long as on our old Presto. I guess that having the removable surface with the heating element separate (the heating element is part of the base) just doesn't allow for an efficient thermal transfer from the heating element to the cooking area.

Consequently, unless you're (1) cheap like me, (2) very patient, (3) obsessed with having an even heat distribution, and (4) fond of spending time at the sink after breakfast, this griddle is a "fail." Too bad, as I think that Oster's really on the right path with the serpentine heating element--I wish the other manufacturers would follow suit (only without separating the heating element from the cooking surface). As for the non-stick surface: Oster, how hard can it be to get this right, after 50 years of non-stick technology advances? This was like a trip back to a non-Teflon knock-off back in the 60s!

FYI, we ended up purchasing a Hamilton Beach Premiere Cookware Electric Griddle; see my review on that model for a comparison.

HASH(0xa1428558) out of 5 stars Nice size, nice Features, Easy to clean! April 17 2011
By Big Kid - Published on
This is one of the widest grills I researched. The removable grill plate is large and easy to clean. The drain system works well. Sturdy base and up-front temp controls. I think the non-stick finish could be a better grade, even spray on oil leaves a little more stick than I like. Cooked bacon to perfection, then followed with several batches of pancakes. Sturdy build, nice stainless steel and black design. Next test will be grilled-cheese sandwiches.

did'nt like it because it never stayed at the temperature i set it at to fry my meat(bacon, sausage etc). it would come up to temperature than cut off and take a long time to come up to temperature again.
