3.0 out of 5 stars Design problems, but heats well., June 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good: Large cookspace. Heats evenly
Bad: Dangerously hot edges. Poor thermostat placement. Difficult to store.

I use a griddle every morning, and I replaced my previous griddle with this one when the teflon wore out on my last one. I am very happy overall with how well this griddle heats and cooks food. However, there are several irritating design problems that aren't apparent from the pictures.

- The handles, grease tray and thermostat are the only places on the griddle that do no heat up. If you bump the front of the griddle, you will get burned. The tray has a catch that requires you to hold on to the griddle to remove it. Normally you would push off with a thumb on the griddle to remove it. But you will get burned if the griddle is on. And if you reach under the griddle handle to adjust the dial, you need to avoid where the thermostat connects to the griddle. Which is only a problem because...

- The thermostat is placed underneath the handle and can't be seen when standing in a normal cooking position over the griddle. You have to lean over the edge to be able to view it.

- The griddle is almost flat. This is an advantage when cooking eggs or pancakes, but when cooking bacon or fatty meats, you may want a griddle that drains better than this one. With only liquid grease on the griddle, it does not drain into the grease trap. You have to push it into the drain.

- And it is big with no flat edges. You cannot lean it on any edge or stand it in a cupboard without supporting it someway. So it ends up taking up a lot of shelf space.

Overall, an okay product. But I will buy something else next time I buy a griddle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Soul-less, June 19, 2001
This review is from: Pickin' on the Eagles (Audio CD)
Received CD as a gift, and never returned it. The best songs are when the banjo and fiddle take the songs in a direction that the Eagles never intended to go. 'New Kid In Town' is a unintentially funny song that is probably my favorite on the album.
