Choose an Electric Griddle

By Tina Bottle

Cooking pancakes is fun, but sometimes it's hard to get the right golden brown. Hamburgers are delicious, too, but how do you get it cooked perfectly while still keeping it juicy and delicious? What makes it so difficult to get food cooked perfectly.

Many things big roll in cooking a perfect juicy burger or browning a pancake just right, but one thing that really makes a difference is the surface you cook on. When you cook pancakes, French toast, burgers, or almost anything like that, the best way to cook them is on a griddle. A burger would probably do better on an outdoor grill, but if you don't have one or if its rainy or cold outside, a griddle is the next best thing.

What are you looking for in a griddle? Whether you want high quality and top performance or just the best price possible, I can help you get the best griddle for your needs. You don't need to be a kitchen tool expert or the greatest deal shopper to get what you want.

If you are a penny pincher, you will look for the cheapest you can find. If you are both an penny pincher and a cooking fanatic, you are stuck somewhere between the best of the best and ending up with a piece of junk. Its hard to find that middle ground.

First decide if you want a plain griddle to use on your stove or an electric griddle. You can get a round griddle just like a saute pan, but it is flat with little to no edge and has more space. This is good if you don't cook large quantities. If you only make pancakes for you or you and one or two other people, a round griddle is the way to go. It doesn't take up space and is easier to clean, and yet you still get a great cooking surface.

If you have a big family that you cook for or cook for a lot of people often, a large griddle or large electric griddle will work better. You can get a large griddle that you use on your stove that is also a flat surface. This is good if you have limited counter space.

Do you need all your stovetop burners? If you are cooking several things, using an electric griddle that you put on your counter can free up lots of needed space. Take advantage of the space you have on the counter if you need several cooking surfaces.

Which ever you choose, base it on how you cook and how often. When you get the right pan that works best, you will find cooking much easier and more enjoyable!
