Ideal for taking along to a weekend cabin or storing in a small kitchen, this large griddle folds in half for compact, upright storage. When fully opened, the cooking surface measures a generous 21 by 10 inches, with a grease-channel around the perimeter and a removable drip tray. The two smooth-finish, nonstick plates cook up everything from eggs to grilled cheese sandwiches to hotdogs and hamburgers, and remove for convenient cleaning in the dishwasher.

Dual control knobs, one for each half, give this griddle extra versatility. Pancakes can cook on one side and stay warm on the other, or eggs and sausage can cook simultaneously at different temperatures. Each side features its own red 'on' light, and a knob that can be positioned infinitely up to 400 degrees F with marked settings every 25 degrees. For safety, a release button must be pushed before the open grill can be folded and closed. Cool-touch housing covers the outside and the handles that latch together. A cord wrap stows the 32-inch power cord neatly. When folded, the unit measures 14-1/4 by 13 by 5-1/2 inches. --Ann Bieri

I received this griddle for Christmas and was disappointed with it for several reasons. I decided to reserve judgement until I had used it for a while, as it was different from my previous griddle and perhaps I just needed to get used to the differences. I can now safely say that it is not worth the money.

Here are the problems that I have with it:

The cord is short(not 32 inches, I measured it at 26 in.). I presume this is a safety issue, but it is very inconvenient. I am restricted to the area of countertop directly in front of the outlet.

The drip pan attaches to the bottom of the pan. It must be removed prior to opening or closing the griddle. It is not easy to reach as it goes on the back side. I actually use the drip tray from my old griddle because it just sits under the griddle.

The plates are designed such that any liquid that you pour on them, such as pancake batter, runs immediately into the grease-channel that goes around the plate. You have to pour very slowly and have a spatula ready to divert the liquid from running off.

The plates were a bit difficult to put in originally. After months of use the ends are wearing, making it almost impossible to get the plates correctly into place.

I have found the temperature controls to be inconsistent. After using it for a while, like when we are cooking burritos one at a time, I find I have to keep turning it up to get the same results.

Lastly, and this is personal preference, it is too bulky when folded to fit in any cabinets or storage areas in my tiny kitchen. My old griddle stored neatly in the space between a wall and my refrigerator. I only point this "complaint" out to remind you to check the dimensions and figure out where you can store it.

I have been looking for a nice, large griddle for a long time in order to take the guesswork out of making pancakes (and to cook larger batches at a time.) A family member learned that I was looking for an electric griddle, so I was given this particular model (the Rival Fold n' Store) as a birthday gift.

First, let me tell you that I like to thoroughly research a product before I buy. I'm a firm believer in the old saying "buy cheap, buy twice." And, I'm very particular about my things and I'm very detail oriented. Ok, with that said, let's move on.

Out of the box, the first thing that I noticed about this unit is that the cooking plates are made of somewhat thin aluminum with a non-stick coating applied to the top. Thin = low thermal mass = they will heat and cool too quickly when food is applied.

The next thing I noticed is that there's a grease channel running around the entire perimeter of the cooking surface and a large seam (joint) where the two folding halves are joined in the center. What does this mean? Liquid foods, such as pancake batter or scrambled eggs will immediately flow toward this channel before they have a chance to stiffen up by cooking. And, the large seam down the center of the cooking surface means no pancakes can be cooked there!

Ok, so how well does this unit heat? I pulled out my non-contact infrared (IR) thermometer gun and took temperature samples after the unit had a chance to fully heat up (after two or three thermostat cycles.) With the thermostat(s) set to 350-degrees F., the cooking surface reached a whopping 460-degrees F.!! Ouch!! I watched as the griddle cooled and the thermostat clicked back on at exactly 350-degrees F. and, once again, proceeded to heat the surface back up to 460-degrees F.

I have to agree with the reviews below that this item has a major design flaw. I received it as a birthday present from friends who know I like to cook. However, after using this a few times, I have to say that I prefer the "old fashion" griddles that just sit on the stove.

The drip tray doesn't catch all of the grease and the design allows the grease to flow to the counter tops. I ususally spend more time cleaning up after using this than cooking. The temperature knobs are inconsistent. After a couple months of use, the same temperatures according to the knobs do not cook the meat as well as it used to. The two sides of the griddle do not heat up the same way. One side is usually hotter than the other when turned to the same temperature.

The drip tray has a spout that is supposedly designed for easy pouring. It's very poorly designed. Every time I tried pooring the grease into a jar, the grease flows through all over the place except the spout.

Don't waste your money on this. I rarely use the griddle. It now only takes up space in my already storage-space-challenged kitchen.

I received the Fold n Store griddle for a birthday gift, along with another griddle. I kept this product, because it freed up some space in my small kitchen.

The concept of this idea is great. However, in practical use, it doesn't work.

The temperature controls are not consistent. The temp you used to cook something last time, will not cook the same way the next time.

The plates are not well designed. The drip tray only goes under one side of the griddle. On the other side, the grease runs to the middle of the griddle, where it does not connect to the side that has the tray on it. So the grease will run through the split (where it folds up) and run all over your counter.

Customer service was nice enough to offer me a new one - of the same model. I don't think I wouldn't have the same problem with another new one that I have with this one. The design has not changed, so I would still have grease all over my counter.

It's also a fire hazard, as when the grease drips through the middle of the griddle, it has the potential to land on the heating element.

If all you're planning to use this griddle for is grilled cheese sandwiches or quesadillas, it should do the job fine. If, however, you want to cook any kind of breakfast meat on it (sausage, bacon, etc.), or make pancakes, you're in for one heck of a mess.

I wish I would have kept the other griddle instead.
