Not the quality I was expecting
Usually I just buy whatever griddle is cheapest, but this time I went with a more expensive model because I didn't like the unevenness of the heat on the cheap ones. For $75 more than I normally pay I expected a pretty fabulous griddle - and don't get me wrong, it is a nice one, but definitely not the quality I was expecting. The nonstick coating is thin and chipped looking on one edge (I hope this is just a manufacturing flaw and not a sign of things to come). The flip-down feet are a great idea in theory, but since there's no lateral slope, all the grease has to be manually pushed toward the hole to drain anyway, making the flip downs kind of redundant. My biggest complaint, however, is how uneven the temperature is. It's the main reason I invested in a more expensive griddle, but it's more uneven than my cheap one. One section of the griddle cooks extremely fast, while other parts stay comparatively cool. I am constantly moving bacon from one side of the griddle to the other so some piecers don't burn while the others are still half raw. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually, but I really expected more from this griddle.
