The 27x13 Black Electric Griddle by Broil King is a great investment for those who live alone to those with large families, as well as those with a large kitchen to someone renting a room. The up side of getting one of these grittles, is the ease of cooking as well as cleaning. Hungry? Simple, cooks best between 250 & 300 degrees (F), so many things, grill cheese sandwiches, fried eggs, bacon, hash browns, cornbeef hash, stir fry vegetables, even just warming up left over pizza. Then there is the obvious like, hot dogs and hamburgers, chicken, pork chops, all so easy to cook on this grittle. When you're finished cooking cleaning is a snap, a matter of a little soap and water, rinse, wipe down, and clean out grease trap, done. The up and down side of the griddle is it's size; great for the amount and variety of foods that can be cooked with this grittle, while finding a suitable place and space to store it (when not in use), so that the coating on the grittle doesn't get damage may pose a challenge. The down side is that while cooking, there may be some spattering to clean, so cooking where there is a lot of things; a toaster, can opener, food processor, and etc., is not recommended. Also years ago, my mother owned a grittle very simular to this one although this one has a grease drain/trap, and my mom's didn't, the older models had thicker, more durable handles then what is used today. Unfortunately, I fear that if I were to drop the grittle (of course by accident), that the handles would not endure the impact without shattering. That is just an assumption on my part, the lightweight handles used today may be space age material, able to handle such an impact, but I doubt it. Over all I rate this product a 4 out of 5, for it's ease of setting up, cooking with, and cleaning. It lost 1 point for the splattering potential, and the (in my opinion) lack of thought and material used to design the handles. I would definately recommend this product as a fine addition to anyone's kitchen and cooking wares.
I recommend this product.
