Now I have owned a Cuisinart Griddler for almost 5 years now, but I got a newer one recently from Best Buy. Boy did they change some things on there that I am just loving. I wouldn’t think they would upgrade something that is already awesome, but they did. I’m glad they did.
I have used the Griddler for many things in the past. But I love to make paninis, pork chops and pancakes on them! It just makes it easier and quicker. Cory’s mother I guess really made dry pork chops when he was growing up, but the Griddler cooks them nicely and they are still juicy on the inside. No Pork Chop Jerky in this house! Chicken is pretty awesome as well with the Griddler.
The changes I have noticed is that there aren’t 2 plates anymore, just 1 that is reversible, and they are a lot lighter then the ones before. So that means less room is being taken up where I store them, and just easier to handle! Also there used to be a separate drop dish, for if things start leaking out of the sides… now it’s attached to the bottom of the Griddler! I have only used it once in the past, and I frankly don’t know if I have the drop dishes anymore!
For Hunter’s first day of school I made him some pancakes with chocolate chips in them, using the Griddler. It was quick and easy and the cleanup was really a breeze.
He wanted heart shaped pancakes so I got a small heart cookie cutter out and went to work. I may or may not have burnt my fingers. Haha.
Here are the pork chops I made on the Griddler. First cooking and then done. I love the grill lines on them!
Did you also know that Best Buy also sells OXO products? I know I was in shock too because I was not expecting that, but it does make me happy! I love OXO products because they are stackable and a great way to store food. I was going to use pancake mix for one of the containers, but Landon wanted me to put the mini muffins we made in there instead. Both boys now how to work the top so it is easily accessible for them. Which is good since Hunter has been waking up before anyone else, so he can grab a muffin or two for himself and let us sleep in a bit more.
The Cuisinart Griddler is sold at Best Buy online or in stores for $99.00.
What would you make on a Griddler if you owned one?
