There has been an increased demand for griddles needed to make breakfast foods like bacon, pancakes or french toast. I am a big fan of electric griddles. However, which is the best pancake griddle ? Several options come into my mind but I have to choose one and I’ll be explaining why.
My pick for the best pancake griddle would be the Cuisinart GR-159 Griddler Deluxe, Brushed Stainless
Why you need to get your own Cuisinart Griddler Deluxe
With the temperature control, you are able to estimate the time needed to leave the food on the griddler without burning it. By adjusting the height, you are able to set the grill just on top of the food which prevents squishing out all of the juice making the food retain the taste and juicy burgers. The food cooks evenly by the fact that the top ‘floats’.
Flipping the grill grate to the other side enables you to have a nice griddle that can be used for pancakes, fish and eggs. The griddle maintains the temperature during the cooking process and the warm up time is just fantastic.
On the downside, one of the things that I didn’t like about the griddle is about the slots on the plates- they aren’t too tall. For instance, should you wish to get meat browned, make sure it’s pretty dry.
What I like about this electric griddle is the detachable safe plates that can be cleaned by a dishwasher. In addition, the temperature control knobs have light indicator that lights green when the set temperature is achieved.
The size of the griddle is another amazing feature. It can fit in every kitchen even when it expands to have the two griddles space.
An electrical tester could come in handy when checking for the electricity in the sockets.
How to operate the Griddler Deluxe for standard cooking
Ensure the griddler is in preheat position and the grill should be in closed position
Turn the upper plate and/ or lower plate temperature to the desired setting
A red indicator on the selected control will indicate that the power is on. Up to 12 minutes may take the griddler to achieve the operating temperatures.
The thermostat having reached the operating temperature, a green indicator light will indicate on the chosen griddler, meaning it is ready for cooking.
To turn the plate off for a desired griddler, turn the temperature dial to OFF. The Deluxe griddler comes with a safety feature that automatically switched off the device when heated for more than 2 hours.
My focus shifted to pancakes and you might be wondering why I considered doing the best pancake griddle? Well, I do like pancakes. Pancakes have a lot of healthy benefits. By making them with the whole grains like whole wheat flour, you will get fiber that is good for your heart. Also, you can add some fruits to boost vitamins and nuts that have protein. However, white flour is low in fibre so it would be advisable to do the nutrients rich pancakes.
