Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler
The 5-in-1 Griddler is Cuisinart’s answer to the ongoing quest for an easy-to-use griller and griddle. It is a compact and lightweight kitchen appliance that can help grill your favorite foods in one go. It has an innovative design that can expand your griddling and grilling surface up to 200 square inches.
The Griddler comes with a brushed stainless-steel housing that gives it an elegant look. It looks beefy, but it only weighs about 5 pounds. Sure, it may be a bit heavy, but this is also what gives the Griddler stability on any surface. It measures 13.5 inches long, 11.5 inches wide, and 7.12 inches high. This makes the Griddler portable enough for your camping and backyard picnic needs.
What is amazing with the Griddler are its reversible cooking plates. You get four of these nonstick cooking plates to obtain a variety of combinations. Each plate comes with a flat, griddle surface that is ideal for cooking eggs, pancakes, bacons, and many more. The other side of the cooking plate features a traditional contact grill. This is perfect for making hamburgers, steaks, and grilled fish complete with the iconic grill marks.
These two cooking surfaces can give you 3 different configurations. Opening the Griddler will give you a 200-square inch cooking surface. That’s 100 square inches on each plate. You can have both plates on their grill or griddle side. Or, you can have one plate serving as the griddle while the other plate acts as a grill. The fourth configuration involves the use of the Griddler in the closed position. This is like your George Foreman grill that you get to grill both sides of your food at the same time.
If you’re into Paninis, Cuban sandwiches, or any other pressed delicacy, then the Griddler’s closable design makes it easy to create such foods. Pressing your sandwiches is easy with the built-in Panini-style handle. This way you get to protect your hands from the hot surface of the appliance. This also allows for the more efficient application of pressure onto the cooking plates.
Controlling the temperature of the Griddler is also easy with the built-in thermostat controls. There is also a selector knob so you can choose between the griddle and grill function of the device.
The Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler is a compact and easy-to-use kitchen appliance. It allows you to enjoy your favorite grilled or griddled foods in minutes.
