When buying an electric griddle, factor in how large of a cooking surface you need. There are two options for griddles: one with the traditional large, flat surface, or a contact grill that has the option of opening to cook flat and comes with a smooth insert for cooking like a griddle. If you go with the traditional griddle, prioritize which specific features are most important to you.
Griddles generally have a large, flat surface and require a good amount of storage space. If space is limited, you might opt for a pricier contact grill that can open and cook flat.
A nonstick cooking surface is most common and often preferred, as griddles are most commonly used for cooking breakfast foods like pancakes and fried eggs.
Griddles have a smooth surface, but some come with an insert to create grill marks on foods as they cook.
Some griddles give you more control by letting you set specific temperatures rather than selecting general settings like low, medium-low, medium, and so on.
Although griddles with a single thermostat (or control) are more common, some models have dual thermostats (controls). This lets you divide the griddle in half and cook at different temperatures at the same time. Dual thermostats also allow you to heat only half the griddle at a time.
As fats cook off foods such as bacon or sausage, some models have drain holes that allow them to drip into a tray. Others have a well at one end or a gutter around the griddle to collect grease.
A warming drawer below the griddle keeps cooked foods warm while more items are on deck.
Nonstick cooking surfaces are a cinch to clean. Some griddles with a removable heat control are dishwasher-safe.
With a range in price, you can find a griddle that suits your budget. Pricier models offer more features and precision heat control.
