4.0 out of 5 stars
A fantastic addition to my kitchen!, June 28 2013
I really like this griddler. It is so easy to use, and makes grilling a very simple experience. It's so nice to just put a couple of steaks on the grill, close the lid, and then come back a few minutes later to your delicious dinner.
I also like that you can open it up and lay it flat to use both the top and bottom surfaces for cooking. I live alone, so I don't need to make use of this too often, but it is a great feature.
Cleaning the plates is also very simple. They are easily removable and the teflon coating makes removing any baked on food very painless.
One thing that I've noticed, and the reason I only gave this grill 4-stars is that it doesn't seem to drain the fat away very well. The bottom plate is not really angled enough to make the grease flow into the plastic grease-catcher. You can put something under the front to tilt it back a little bit more, but it seems like something that Cuisinart should have noticed during testing. It seems a bit silly to have a grease-catcher on this grill when more often than not, it's completely clean after I've finished cooking. Maybe I just need to cook greasier food?
Anyway, that small grip aside, I am very happy with my purchase and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for this type of appliance.
