Blackstone 1554 Griddle Station

Professional-Grade Outdoor Griddle

This outdoor griddle by Blackstone comes with 4 stainless-steel burners with independent temperature controls so you have full control over how hot your griddle gets.

What We Liked

This professional-grade griddle comes at a fantastic price point considering its high-quality build. We especially like that this was designed for maximum utility, equipped with a removable griddle top that comes coated in a protective oil to prevent rust, cantilevered shelves and folding legs with industrial strength caster wheels – two of which can lock.

Most Versatile

Lodge LPGI3PLT Pro-Grid Cast Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle Pan

Cast Iron Grill & Griddle Pans

A cast iron grill and griddle pan set that serves as an adaptable alternative to purchasing an entire griddle. The Lodge pans fits perfectly over two stovetop burners and has excellent heat retention and distribution.

What We Liked

What we particularly like about this set is its versatility. The grill and griddle pans can be used on the kitchen stove top, camping stoves, campfires and barbecue grills. The quality of the grill is evident in its weight – while other grills may be lighter due to the lower-grade material they’re made of, the Lodge set gets its heaviness from its thick cast-iron body. Available on Amazon.

Most Space-Conscious

Presto 07061 22-inch Electric Griddle with Removable Handles

Compact Electric Griddle

This portable nonstick electric griddle is as simple as a griddle can get while still retaining its quality. Plug into an outlet to watch its cast aluminum base heat up rapidly, providing a wide, hot surface area for cooking.

What We Liked

This electric griddle was built with the home-cook in mind, designed to be compact and simple to use. With its detachable handles removed, the pans can fit easily into your average 18-inch kitchen cabinet. For easy cleaning, you can remove the Control Master heat control and submerge the whole tray in water. However, be careful not to put it in the dishwasher, as it is not dishwasher friendly.

BLACK+DECKER Family-Sized Electric Griddle

Family-Sized Electric Griddle

A no-nonsense nonstick electric griddle with 200 square inches of cooking surface that heats quickly and evenly with variable temperature controls and can serve 8 people.

What We Liked

This electric griddle is designed with a unique, innovative accessory – a built-in warming tray. When items are hot and ready to serve, simply transfer them from the griddle’s pan into its slide-out warming tray where the food will remain heated as you prepare the rest of the meal. Available from Amazon.
