I have a funny story about how I discovered my griddle...
For years I was intimidated by the griddle on my new stove. It was so shiny and pretty and I remembered the stove in my old house where the griddle was all black and ugly, and I was determined to keep my beautiful new one all perfect, which sadly meant not using it LOL....so one day my husband made pancakes on it and it turned all black and I totally freaked out. Called the Viking customer service number and asked what I should do to make it pretty again, all my scrubbing wasn't helping at all! I am sure they got a kick out of my hysterical hissy fit, as they kept asking "so what is the problem exactly?" and I said "It's all black" "All of it?" "YES, all over!" "Ok so ma'am, what is the problem then?" OMG it's supposed to SEASON!!!! How dumb could I BE?
lmao was that ever humiliating...
so anyway, now I use it for everything, whenever I can!
