There is no set up except screwing on the feet and hooking the hose to a propane tank. But you will need to spend 45 minutes or more to season the cooking surface. I used extra virgin olive oil 3 times which took about 15 minutes or so each time. Detailed instructions on how to do it are included.
It doesn't cook evenly although it's not a horrible difference between areas and could be a good thing once you get to know your grill. There are two burners but they are closer to each other in the center of the grill than the width of each burners curve so the center gets the hottest. I tried hash browns in separate four inch servings. Those on the inside cooked faster then those on the edges. Which in this case was a good thing as I wasn’t scrambling to turn all of the paddies at the same time. The edge closest to you doesn't get hot enough in fact I couldn't get it seasoned.
Make sure you have plenty of table space the grill is sitting on as the feet are slippery and it will slide around especially if you are having to scrape food that sticks like my hash browns.
The manual says a minimum height of 31.5 inches for the table top which puts the cooking surface over 36 inches. I’m 5’ 10” and find that’s too high. The cooking surface for my charcoal grill is only 29” which is perfect for me but it’s hotter so I use longer utensils. I would prefer the cooking surface for this at 32”.
Leveling is a big issue as it's designed for oil and grease to run off into the drip pan but I want to cook my food in the oil. You will want a table top that can be adjusted for a perfect level.
The drip pan is hard to get out and back in. You need to lift and pull but it sticks.
Keep in mind oil and grease does splatter so it will end up on whatever the grill is on or next to.
The cooking surface just lifts off and fits inside our laundry sink which makes it easy to clean with soap, water and a sponge with a rough edge. If you use a metal scrubber you will have to re-season and probably scratch the surface.
I'm a charcoal griller but I have always wanted to cook some things like breakfast outside (I have a metal cooking surface for my charcoal grill but it's a lot of work). My first use was hash browns and pancakes which turned out great, tasted great, and was fun to do outdoors. And this is relatively easy to setup and clean.
First off, my unit arrived in a box beat to heck and back. The unit has a noticeable dent in the metal frame. It didn't impact the functionality but its aesthetically annoying. Second, the propane hose had a horrible kink in it and I debated whether or not to even use the unit. But, after being out of the box and sitting for a bit it looked fine. Not sure who to blame here, Amazon for their terrible packaging job, UPS for their usual level of service, or the manufacturer for putting the bare minimum into their packaging. The manufacturer in particular is frustrating as the main griddle plate has a lot of mass. You need to protect and isolate that mass.
That said, the big positive of this review is the griddle plate. Cuisinart nailed this. The griddle plate is a very heavy quality steel surface. It has some serious mass. It also takes a seasoning very well. A couple rounds of burning off some canola oil had the surface well blackened and ready to go. I was able to cook a variety of foods without much issue accept for scrambled eggs. But, a few months of use and I expect it to pass even the tortuous scrambled egg test.
The worst thing that can be said of the griddle plate are the tight, right angle edges and corners. These are oil and food magnets and make clean-up a bit more of a chore than it should be.
The rest of the unit is not quite as good. First, the dual burners definitely generate a ton of heat. But, there are some pretty clear hot spots. This is very noticeable when seasoning the steel the first time. The twin burners are actually two "J" shaped tubes. The hot and cool spots correspond to these shapes VERY closely. This can be either a positive or negative depending on how you plan to cook. It is useful to have a cool zone or two on the cook surface BUT you will not be able to cover the surface in burgers like you see in promo material.
The body of the unit made from a much thinner steel construction. It doesn't feel nearly as sturdy. The powder coating on my unit was damaged in a few places. The griddle does have adjustable feet but rubber foot on my unit popped off while attempting to adjust it and I had to glue it back on.
The knobs are pretty decent but the right knob on mine must have suffered damage during shipping because it doesn't really like to stay on. It is easy when adjusting the unit to slide it off. Its easy enough to fix but a steady annoyance.
My biggest issue with the unit is the grease trap. First, its a royal drag to remove. At first I thought I was doing something wrong as it made no sense that I would need to pull so hard. Once I finally did, I flung grease drippings everywhere. After a few uses, it hasn't gotten any better. I'm not sure if this intentional or again, due to the damage my unit suffered during shipping.
Overall, I liked the Cuisinart griddle. My review is critical in tone and it is warranted but, ultimately, the quality of the griddle plate makes this unit a pleasure to cook on. If it wasn't for that positive experience I would have rated the unit only two stars. I am willing to deal with the other annoyances.
