Cons: The "Tilt'n Drain" feature is annoying the legs are alway kicking out to the side. One more plastic piece to break. Also if using to cook pancakes it will really only cook directly over the coil, outside the coil it take twice as long to cook.
1) I can now cook pancakes for a big crowd in just two rounds, rather than four or five rounds or by using multiple pans.
2) You can cook a full pound of thick sliced bacon at one time on this one extra large griddle.
3) The heat is well distributed fairly evenly so I don't end up with some pancakes burned and others are doughy.
4) The tilt feature with handles that are simple to operate and don't get hot is really helpful when cooking something like bacon with a lot of fat/drippings.
If you're tired of long sessions of cooking pancakes, bacon, etc., buy this grill and spend less time in the kitchen.
-Very large - can fry lots of eggs at a time. (Still fits in our under the oven drawer.)
-The tilt function is simple and works great for straining fat off meat. The entire front end of the griddle has a ledge that drips into the strainer/fat catcher (whatever you want to call it). We owned the smaller regular Presto griddle for a few years before it stopped functionning as well and replaced it with this one and it's VERY nice not to have to use books or something to prop the griddle up at and angle to strain fat off of meat. :-)
-Very reasonably priced.
-Sometimes it doesn't seem to heat evenly... Letting it pre-heat a little longer can (sometimes) remedy this issue.
-We've been using this griddle on almost a daily basis, primarily to fry eggs, for about 2 or 3 months now and are VERY happy with it. Wish we'd have upgraded to this model sooner. If the heating element were equal in temperature on all parts of this griddle, I'd give it a 5 out of 5 stars, but even with that flaw, it's still a great griddle and I'd buy it again. I highly reccomend this griddle.
It does well enough, I guess. It is enormous, and does not even come close to fitting in the same cabinet as my old one.
However, despite its incredible size (which I had hoped would increase the number of pancakes cooking at once), I am only able to cook one additional pancake because the back edge is narrower than the front, and in reality it isn't able to accommodate a much larger number than my original, standard sized griddle.
Another thing you might want to consider is that the nonstick surface is not baby-skin smooth. It's VERY non-stick, but it has a fine texture, and my pancakes don't brown like they did on the other skillet. If I turn the temp up to 375, they cook faster, but don't quite brown. They will brown if left there long enough, but they'll cook nearly all the way through leaving nothing to cook for the flip. If I turn it to 350, they cook slower, and still don't get as brown. My old griddle would brown the pancake without cooking all the way through before the flip. This is kind of a big deal, as I prefer the flavor of a browner pancake.
I've cooked scrambled eggs on this, and it works OK for that. Bacon would work well with the tilt feature, I have to admit, but we don't do a lot of bacon so I haven't tried it.
There is indeed some variation in heating across the surface. The aluminum is too thin for it to be otherwise. I don't have a fancy IR thermometer, but pancakes don't lie, and they cook a little faster in spots. Nothing to worry about so far, though.
Finally, I'm not really a fan of the handle/tilting feature. It makes the griddle difficult to get a solid grip on if you pull it out of the cabinet by the handle. The handle shifts, making it unstable and forcing me to use two hands.
If you can live without high tech non-stick, go to a flea market or second-hand store and look around for an ancient electric griddle. It will be three times as heavy, and probably work forever, all for about $5. I did that for my cast iron, and it's pretty much non-stick now anyway...
In addition to breakfast, I've been successful using this griddle at lunch and dinner: Cooking hamburgers and toasting buns (or toast). FYI: Burgers taste better when the bun is toasted. I coat the griddle with olive oil, then toast away...butter works, too.
Note: The surface is non-stick, but I ALWAYS lightly coat using vegetable oil, olive oil, or butter. It adds a nice (crunchy) texture to many food items. The drip pan is a plus, making for easy clean up.
My four-star rating is based on the uneven cooking surface. It does NOT cook evenly, but in fairness to Presto, I have yet to find a griddle that does; the nature of electric griddles. I am not a fan of the tilt feature, and observed no benefit.
Overall, I'd recommend this model (Presto 07046). I have created some very memorable & tasty meals using this product.
