    Nice surface, but ...

    On the plus side, this unit looks good, and the ceramic surface is super non-sticky. It's submersible, making cleaning easier. On the minus side are some significant issues. - The surface heats unevenly. The left side, away from the control, is the hottest. - The cord comes out of the control (which plugs into the unit on the right side) toward the back. My nearest outlet is on the right side. The cord bends awkwardly to get to my outlet. I wish the cord came straight out of the control. - The temperature control does not seem to work properly. The manual recommends 400 degrees for pancakes; at that setting, my very first batch of pancakes charred almost instantly, and my nylon spatula melted. Trial and error suggests a setting of between 200 and 250 works. - The ceramic surface is so slippery grease just beads up when it melts. It does not spread out and cover the surface so foods can actually get a little fried. There's not much point in greasing the surface (which the manual recommends) if the fat only collects into scattered drops. - The upturned edge of the surface is too low. If your spatula pushes your food when you're trying to flip it, which could happen with a blunt-edged tool, you can easily end up pushing it right off the griddle. The edge could be higher to help keep food in.

    I bought 3 since for other family members and they love them! These are great for a quick meal with no butter or oil required. They tend to burn the pancakes if you don't use something though. What we do is cook bacon and use that grease as the base. Cooks eggs like a pro ... hot sandwiches are a + for sure! The clean up is simple and does not require soap or even water if you clean up right afterward. The grease catcher is also very helpful and big enough to catch everything without emptying. Plugs into any outlet with ease and storage is simple enough stacking upwards or sideways. We always have it ready to use and easy to find! We don't use actual pan too much anymore.

    The New Age Cooking Surface

    Ceramic cooking surfaces are quickly becoming the favorites for many home chefs who want a no-stick way to cook foods without the potential health problems and wearing patterns on traditional interfaces like Teflon. This ceramic grill fills the bill nicely: food doesn't stick, you don't use cooking sprays or butter, and you put on only a minimal amount of cooking oil. Just make sure to clean the surface thoroughly with dish detergent and water after every use, and don't use metal cooking utensils. Also, you should never bang a cooking surface like this because the ceramic will crack. Take care of this grill, and you'll have great food and easy cleanup for years.

    Great Griddle

    This griddle has a very large surface area to cook on, it is very easy to clean and maintain, and it is so versatile! I mainly use it for pancakes, grilled sandwiches, fried eggs, french toast, bacon, or fried zucchini. Nothing ever burns or sticks to the surface. This particular griddle has a fairly short cord, although longer cords are allowed. I don't know where one would purchase such a thing, but the owner's manual speaks of them. It is the perfect length for me though, so this was not an issue. So far, I love my griddle and have used it daily!

    I love this griddle. Making pancakes on it is effortless, the batter pours into nice circles, it bubbles quickly and they taste delicious. I used to hate making pancakes because they never come out "pretty in the frying pan, plus I'd have to deal with the pot. But, I've mastered making pancakes on the griddle and my kids want it daily. Even the clean up is great because I let the griddle cool, simply wipe it with a cloth and everything's off. I wash it afterward just to make sure it's clean-clean.

    To this point, the griddle has only been used for bacon. Once we make some pancakes, I will see if (like our old griddle) it has some hot spots to be aware of. My only slight complaint is that the drip tray is not as large as the one on our old griddle. The first time I used it I tried to tip it forward a little to get the excess grease to drain off of the griddle only to have a grease puddle start to form on the counter. One griddle-full of bacon is enough to fill up the drip tray, so just be careful to empty halfway through, or just avoid trying to pull the thing out while it is full.

    Love the ceramic coating but...

    ...it can be a little uneven in the cooking in terms of where on the griddle food is (some pancakes get done faster than others). I've honestly never owned one that didn't do this though (although I always get inexpensive griddles--may be my problem!) My bigger issue with this griddle is the coating does seem to wear off relatively quickly. We use ours regularly, but still less than a year until the coating is off it enough to make food stick and burn seems a bit short. Like the griddle, but want it to last longer!

    Maybe I got a bad one, but this is way too hot....

    This one looks nice, but has very inconsistent heating. When set at 300 per the thermostat, the edges heat up to 444 and the middle is as low as 270. This drastic temperature differential can make some bad burned strips in pancakes. I took a video of my heat gun to verify what I was saying, but I'm unable to upload videos unlike Amazon.

    Good but not great

    I got this for my wife as a Christmas gift and she loves it. She always wanted one. It is a good machine. The reason it is not great is it heats up way too fast and is a little uneven. Also scrambled eggs are a no go. The burner is either too hot and the eggs scrambled too quick and burn or the eggs just run into the grease catcher and you loose some of the eggs. Overall it gets the job done but make sure it is on the temp you need and keep an eye on you food because it Cooks quickly

    Poor heating and cleaning

    Maybe mine was a lemon but the griddle did not heat evenly which caused food to over cook on one side while trying to get the food done on the other side of the griddle. Cleaning was not as easy as advertised and since I could not remove the over cooked marks, I am returning to the store and will continue to shop for a better product. I would not recommend buying this unless you have the patience to clean it and don't mind over and under cooked food.

    Titanium Electric Griddle works great!

    Bella - 10.5" x 20" Ceramic Copper Titanium Electric Griddle - was bought to mainly cook breakfast for 4. It has enough space to cook eggs, sausages, and pancakes for all four in less than 30 minutes. It heats up fast. It does not stick and cleans quickly. Only issue so far is the drain cup is plastic and has already begun melting from the hot grease. So that item should be made more durable. Great grill for the price.

    Disappointed by short cord, couldn't use.

    Had everything I wanted but because of short cord have not been able to use it. Claimed to be a "safety' feature, I say a cheap excuse. Do they really think I'm going to have my kitchen remodeled so there's an outlet every 18"? They say NOT to use an extension cord, so how do I use it? The extension cord will be my ONLY option, surely longer than if they added an extra foot to the maybe 2 feet they give you. Silly! Will probably have to return it.

    I receive this griddle a day ago. It is well made and a medium size which holds enough meats for around four people. It cooks quickly and evenly and does not stick or burn. It is well made.I just love this griddle. I cooked breakfast for the first time. It was quick and also easy to clean. It also heats up quickly. I have an old one which is a different model. I will buy another one for a family member. I love it.

    Pick this up on sale for $20 , and couldn't ask for a better deal. I like the copper surface a lot better then my last griddle, which was a cheap cast iron type of surface. Things very rarely stick and it gives fairly consistent heat across the whole unit. I do wish the cord was a little longer though. It's only about 3 or 4 ft, but could really use a 6-foot cord

    I have had this griddle now for five months. It is fantastic in every respect. Clean up is tremendously easy (often just using a paper towel!). Do NOT use a spray oil, as my experience is that such oils cause a gummy residue that is very difficult to remove. Peanut oil is my preferred oil, as it tolerates high heat. No major issue with spotty heating. I did a great deal of research after too many disappointments with lesser griddles. THIS IS THE ONE!

    I've used the run of the mill Teflon coated griddles for years and understand the temperatures for the different items being cooked. This griddle seems to cook hotter, so I've backed everything down about 25 degrees. Also I find you should still use some spray oil when using this copper griddle. Otherwise everything cooks very dry & lifeless. But I did this with the Teflon griddles too.

    Have been using this griddle a lot since buying. I absolutely love it. So great for breakfast cooking. Even took it along on vacation to cook for 9 people. Nothing sticks to this as long as you put a little butter on first. It fact it might be a little too slick,but I can live with that. Super easy to clean also. Wish I would have bought it a long time ago. Excellent price too.

    I have begun 2018 Christmas shopping, and ran across this griddle in a Best Buy internet ad. I knew one of my daughter's needed a griddle, plus, mine is aging, so I ordered two of these griddles online. Process was quick and easy, and my order arrived in a timely manner. Pleased with the griddle and pleased with the whole ordering process via Best Buy online.

    Beware - Read Other Sites' Reviews First

    Posted
    SteveR

    As usual the Best Buy reviews are unusually positive compared to other sites. Uneven cooking and Not Durable are some of the remarks. Search for B017WASY3U on Amazon to access reviews. Isn't is amazing, the model #s Best Buy uses rarely come up on other sites when cross-checking...like it's on purpose to avoid comparisons...sounds like the marketing ploys uses by mattress sellers.

    I bought this griddle for my wife and we couldn't be more pleased. It comes to temperature quickly and its anti stick is so slick certain foods almost have a difficult time finding enough purchase to be picked up by the spatula and would rather slide around. Once we got used to that and learned to compensate, we were hooked. Plus it's easy to clean and store. Highly recommend!
