griddle We recently bought an electric griddle so that I could make more than one pancake at a time. After reading a few reviews, I confirmed that the 20 inch electric model from Presto was the way to go.

While it's available on (and here), I bought locally and got the chance to put it to use last weekend when some of the family were visiting. I was surprised and impressed by how quickly and evenly it heated. But that was really just the beginning.

It turns out that this little electric wonder makes pancakes that light, fluffy, and far more evenly cooked than anything I've even been able to do on the stove top. And to put icing on the cake, the manual provides temperature settings so that you can cook a few dozen other things: eggs, sausage, bacon, and so on.

The non-stick coating is trivial to clean and the grease catcher appears to do it's job well too.

In summary, if you ever find yourself needing to make pancakes for more than a couple people at once, get yourself an electric griddle!

Damn, now I'm hungry for a pancake...

I've been using one of these for about 2 years now. It really is nice to be able to make 4 big pancakes at the same time, have enough room to flip them, and have enough ready at the same time to have the family eat together. Works great for bacon too once you get a bacon press or two.

Funny. I bought the exact same griddle about a month ago. Works great for French Toast and burgers, too.

How accurate is the "cool touch" moniker?
