I'm well acquainted with cooking on stainless steel surfaces. Rule number one is to make sure the surface is as clean and highly polished as possible before heating and placing food on it. Right out of the box this griddle has a fairly nice fine-brushed finish.... comparable to what you'd expect to see on moderately-priced S.S. cookware. I have found that, if you can see yourself in the surface of S.S. cookware, it can work like non-stick cookware and requires minimal maintenance between uses.
After washing my new griddle, I gave the cooking surface a 5-stage polishing. Starting with 400 grit wet-or-dry emery paper and working up to 800, 1500 and 2000 grit paper, I got the surface ready for a final polish. Using a 6" dual-orbital polisher with a terry bonnet, I applied Wenol metal polish (red tube - available on Amazon) and buffed it to a near mirror finish. The last step in the process is to scrub the griddle with a strong degreaser and rinse well.
Today I cooked an 18oz package of thick-sliced peppered bacon on my new griddle. Results were excellent... and after cooling down, clean up was less than 10 minutes.
The drip tray is more than adequate. 1-1/2 lbs of bacon produces a lot of liquid fat. The tray was less than 1/2 full when cooking was completed.
There was no heat warping during cooking. The welded construction of this piece is rugged. No leaking seams... which could be a real problem with an inferior product. I have no problem recommending this product for use on your gas grill.
EDIT - After looking at a few of the reviews posted by folks who gave this griddle low marks, I found one complaint that the griddle rusted while being stored. Some stainless steel products will indeed rust if not thoroughly cleaned before storage. I just checked my griddle's surface and found that a magnet WILL stick to it. This means that salt (including salt air) and corrosive sauces and seasonings, if allowed to sit on the surface, will eventually corrode the metal. This new-found knowledge does not mean my 5-star rating should be changed... but those who consider buying this neat little grill accessory need to be aware that some measure of care is required before storing the griddle for an extended period.
Figuring it was time for a new grill anyway, and that I love Weber grills, I bought a Weber Spirit E-210 for four-hundred dollars at the hardware store which has dual burners and is rated at 26,500 BTU over 450 sq in of surface area, which comes out to 59 BTU per sq inch, a 37% heat improvement over the Q200 grill. I'm not claiming to be an authority on this, but I just figured that getting the Sizzle-Q hotter was all about BTUs per sq inch. Plus the dome cover of the Spirit E-210 fits over the Sizzle-Q whereas the cover for the Q200 does not.
OK, so now four-hundred dollars more out of pocket for a new grill, I was ready to start cooking on the Sizzle-Q! Now, let me say first that I worked as a fast-food cook at Roy Rogers when I was a teenager, and we had a flat-top grill to cook the burgers (no, not Trigger-burgers). I came to love cooking on flat-top grills because it was like a work area and cooking area all in one. I'm 45 now and cooking on the Sizzle-Q brought back fond memories of cooking on a flat-top. I've had the Sizzle-Q for 3 days and have cooked every meal on it. My favorite is breakfast. BACON COOKS FLAT. It does not curl-up like it does in a frying pan. This was a welcome surprise, but I suspect that because a frying pan is hotter in the middle and cooler towards the edge, that it causes the back to heat up unevenly and curl up. Omelettes on the Sizzle-Q are especially fun and easy. Do yourself a favor and get a turner, not fancy rubber handled spatula, a good ol' wooden handled rectangle-shaped seven-dollar turner, one the length of a folded up omelette, a 7-10 inch blade or so.
The Sizzle-Q is solid, hasn't warped, and has been easy to clean up with water and a scotch-brite scrubber and scraper. I love that I can cook a whole meal -- bacon, omelette, sauteed onions and spinach, and garlic fried rice -- all on the same cooking surface all at the same time. No rinsing, no washing, no switching pans. I think I love this part the most.
One side benefit is that the flavors intermingle. The bacon grease can't help getting itself into the sauteed spinach and fried rice as they're cooking side-by-side. I just have to periodically scrape the excess bacon grease into the trough with my seven-dollar turner. Oh, that's another thing -- the front top edge of the grease trough in the front is an excellent edge to scrape the schmutz off your turner if you need to clean it while cooking. Just pull your turner blade down across the top edge of the grease trough on both sides.
Even at 59 BTU per sq in with my new four-hundred dollar Weber Spirit E-210 grill, I still wish I could get the Sizzle-Q hotter. It's not the fault of the Sizzle-Q, just an issue about the grill. I'm a loyal Weber customer, so I wouldn't consider another brand, and the top-of-the-line Weber Summit E-670 costs thousands more for 78 BTU per sq in. Instead, I'm going to experiment with letting the grill and Sizzle-Q heat up with the grill dome cover closed for awhile. Without the Sizzle-Q, the grill gets up to 500+ degrees with the dome closed. The Sizzle-Q acts as a sort of heat-sink dissipating some of the heat. Perhaps I just need to wait longer with the dome cover closed.
The Sizzle-Q does great, reminds me of my days as a fast-food cook cooking on a flat-top grill, and I'm enjoying every meal I've cooked on it.
