I always use an electric skillet...mine will hold 8 saucer sized pancakes, and they turn out perfect every time.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I have an old Magnalite griddle...woeks great. I distributes the heat better than cast iron. Be aware, there is now two Magnalites.. one good, one not. Basically, if its cheap, it isn't the good stuff....

I used to have an electric skillet, till the non stick started coming off. I have not replaced it yet, so I just use my cast iron pans. I would really like to get a cast iron griddle for the stove top that covers two burners.
I would like another electric griddle but I don't like non-stick stuff so unless they come up with something different I will stick to my cast iron. Once you get the hang of it, its pretty easy to use and last practically forever.

I don't think you can have both. Right now, my suggestion would be to go with a cheap non-stick griddle.
