    I bought this item 3 months ago, and wanted to give it some time and use before writing a review. I originally bought this a few years ago for a friend and she raved about it so much, I decided to purchase for myself since moving into a smaller place due to it being compact and versatile for a small kitchenette space. It has been wonderful for healthy cooking for myself or for 2 people. The plates heat evenly, are easy to change out and clean. The booklet included has been a helpful guide for knowing how to best cook certain items.

    Great indoor grill

    This grill is good for a lot of different items. Works well for sandwiches, steaks, chicken, fish, vegetables, and just about anything you wish to grill. However, if you do grill marinated meats with sugar, it can be a bit difficult to clean since you need to soak it overnight and use a little extra elbow grease to clean it. What's nice about the unit is that the plates are removable. Otherwise, the grill itself is a wonderful appliance to have especially if you are unable to cook outside with a regular full size grill.

    Cooks meats on both sides evenly because the cook at the same time, so you don't have to guess or time each side separately and then flip. Plenty of space for four burgers or chicken at a time, possible to squeeze in more depending on size, but mine are always big. Easy to use / set controls Easy to clean by hand or dishwasher. For $100 I get a lot of use out of it, it has replaced a lot of my stove top cooking. I just keep it next to or on my stove so I don't forget to use it and now I don't even think about using my stove most of the time for grilling or skillet-ing.

    Better than a George Foreman

    I previously owed George Foreman grills and decided to try the Cuisinart Griddler. Cuisinart continues to live up to their quality name. The unit has such flexibility that I find myself using it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The plates are so easy to remove and wash. The Griddler has multiple heating levels so you can cook eggs, steak, French toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, anything you desire. The two sided plates allows for various types of cooking. I love the Griddler and wish I had purchased one prior to any George Foreman I previously owned.

    By far the best small appliance that I own...

    This is by far the best small appliance that I own, and I own a lot!!! I use this four or five times a week. It is really great for making eggs and bacon (use the panini plate for extra lean bacon). Always put the eggs on the bottom part as it tends to have less of a slope to it. Clean up is amazing I used to have a George Forman grill that you could not disconnect the plates and I always wondered if it was really clean enough. With this you just pop the plates off and put them in the dishwasher.

    Makes a nice panini

    I bought this item because I've always wanted a panini maker. It does a good job with making panini sandwiches. It has reversible cooking plates on the top and bottom. The panini side of the plates has grooves as shown in the product image. The other side of the plates is completely smooth, allowing for use as a griddle. I have not tried the smooth side of the plates yet. It seems to be of decent build quality. The cooking plates seem to be non-stick, and are easily removable for washing.

    I bought this item as a gift for friends - they are very excited about how well this panini press works. The best discovery is that you can cook bacon on the press, and it cooks on both sides at the same time and produces perfect bacon every time... If crispy perfect bacon is for you, then don't miss out. This press does many wonderful things - but just the crispy bacon makes it worth every penny! Do your whole breakfast on the press and have extremely easy clean up! Enjoy - what are you waiting for?

    We use the griddle for a variety of things.

    I thoroughly enjoy this product. We cool everything on it. Steaks, burgers, chicken, sausage, eggs, veggies. We love this product and would highly recommend. It definitely has to be watched though. We have only had this product for a month and it has a large crack on the griddle. We aren't sure how safe it is to eat food off of and we aren't sure how it got there for we don't use any metal spatulas or anything that would damage this surface. Luckily we bought a two year replacement plan so we should be set! Those sure do come in handy and for only $15 extra it was a great buy!

    Great idea gone wrong

    Posted
    Mike3675

    What it does is great when it is working. HOWEVER, killing my 2nd one in a few months time makes it one of the worse things I wasted my money on. 1st one spring release got stuck so i could not put it back together after cleaning. This happened only after a few uses. On the 2nd one was a bit slower death. About a month the griddle switch stop working. So now i have to cook everything using the gill side which isn't so bad until now it decides to turn off whenever it feels like. So a great idea that has gone horribly wrong

    I researched this item pretty heavily prior to purchasing... I was between this and a Hamilton Beach model. I was torn about this item as some of the reviews complained about dripping grease. Since Cuisinart is the better brand, I decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed! I primarily use it to cook veggies and chicken. My asparagus, zucchini and squash turn out PERFECT each time! Cleanup is a breeze due to the removable plates. The plates are dishwasher safe but I prefer to wash by hand. No dripping grease! I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    I use my grill 3 - 4x a week. It is so easy to use and clean. I moved to an apartment and missed my gas grill and now I can go back to my grilling and I love it. The food seems healthier and tastes great. It's my main source of cooking. I have all my mise en place in order, and it takes me minutes to cook what I want on the grill: protein, vegetables, eggs anything I want. It's better than I ever thought it could be. I hope you enjoy your grill as much as I enjoy mine. So much better than the grill I had that broke, George .......

    This works well but we only use it for grilling sandwiches. The two plates are reversible so you have the choice if you want the grill marks on your bread or use the flat surface instead. The plates come off easily and make it easy to clean. The "floating cover" just means the angle of it changes so it sort of adjusts to the thickness of your sandwich. It mostly works but it also may shrink the total size you can use. I would've preferred that the top portion go completely vertical instead of the diagonal way it comes down.

    I purchased the Griddler primarily to cook fish ( salmon, tilapia and halibut) and steaks for lunchtime meals for 1 or 2 people.. I wanted something that cooks fast, adjusts for varying thicknesses, cooks evenly and is easy to clean. The Griddler fits my requirements perfectly. As an added bonus, the Griddler produces a delicious grilled taste and charred appearance matched by any other grilling machine (and I've had a few) or any convection or infrared toaster size oven I've had in the past or still own. Highly recommended.

    Had to return the first one, DOA out of the box. The second one was a display unit and works fine, but I bought the service plan just in case. This replaced my George Foreman when the non-stick surface started to peel. The Griddler is more versatile and works like a charm. Clean up is easier than the George Foreman b/c of the removal plates, but still requires some effort and don't know how long the non-stick surface will last.

    I can't believe I didn't get one before… this 'Griddler' is so GREAT. It has so many uses. It is good for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Linner, Dinner and, the late night snack. The plates are easy to clean (dishwasher) and change. The temperature controls are fantastic and deliver just the right amount of heat - evenly spread throughout the unit's surface. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to make anything from pancakes to steak. This is a well made product and, even looks great on the countertop. Grilled Cheese for everyone!

    Griller/Panini Maker is nice

    Have used twice. panini's were fab. Made hash browns which turn out good but i only had one side heated. Pilot error. The nonstick coating seems wimpy as others warned when i checked out the reviews. I store it with paper toweling/thin cardboard sandwiched between the grates to keep the surface from rattling and chipping. So far that has worked.

    Works great for making panini / grilled sandwiches. Jury still out on how well the "sear" setting does because it's not quite as hot as I want. Meat with a dry rub are fine but nothing with a sauce. Drip tray is fine for catching fat run off but I've no luck with a real sauce yet (beyond just a light oil / butter coating). The trays are REALLY EASY to clean (once they've cooled), which is a huge plus. Look forward to getting the waffle trays next. This is a keeper!

    I was looking for a Panini maker and stumbled upon this. I really didn't want to spend that much for a glorified sandwich maker but I had a little store credit and thought what the heck. I have used this to make paninis (GREAT), steak (not so great), pancakes (great), burgers (great) and several other things. I am so pleased with this appliance. It cleans up easily and stores just as easy. I wish the sides were a bit higher to catch more drippings or at least guide them to the drip tray better.

    This was a random purchase but this item is very sturdy and has isolated top and bottom grills. You can grill anything straight down with the sturdy handle. Easy cleaning and you don't see the gross fat because the drip pan is kind of hidden in the back. It lays flat to be used as a large griddle for pancakes and etc. with reversible grill plates. Has both heat/temperature control and a ready light for convenience.

    I read all the reviews and there were several problems mentioned that I wasn't sure I could live with but the Deal of the Day price was so low, I took the chance. The plates don't heat to the same temperature. (I have a temperature reading tool). The grease doesn't drain well. Some stays on the plates and some gets on the counter top. Only about 2/3rds drains into the cup. It is ok at the right price but not at the retail price.
