Electric Griddles Buyer’s Guide
There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the best electric griddle for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your electric griddle experience.
Power: The power in electric griddles is measured in watts, which shows you the amount of power the griddle can produce. The higher the power, the more powerful the griddle will be, which will allow you to grill thicker foods quicker.
Cooking Surface: The cooking surface is an important feature to pay attention to, as this will show you how much space you will have to cook on. If you want to cook enough food for a large group, you may need a bigger cooking surface than someone that wants to cook for two people.
Removable Drip Tray: The drip tray is located under the cooking surface, which is designed to catch all the excessive grease and oils from your food. Many griddles allow you to easily remove the drip tray to empty it. If the griddle is not equipped with one, you will need to pour the grease by tilting the whole griddle.
Thermostat: The thermostat allows you to control the temperature you want. Many griddles allow you to control the heat by moving the thermostat from slow, medium, to high, which is less accurate than the ones that allow you to control the specific temepratures by the exact degrees. Some griddles come equipped with two thermostats, which allow you to cook on the griddle at two different temperatures, as it splits the surface in two differently controlled parts.
Cool Touch Handle: The cool touch handle is a feature that comes with some griddles – basically it is two handles that don’t heat up when the griddle does. The cool touch handles allow you to carry the griddle when it’s hot without needing oven mitts or hand protection.
Keep these terms in mind when comparing prices and features to find the Best Electric Griddle!
