I love my GF grill. It is great to use when the weather is too bad outside to grill on the patio. I would definitely get the model with the removable plates. It is not hard to clean, but mine would be much easier if I could take the plates off.

Simply change the cooking plates and adjust the floating hinge to use the Griddler as a Contact Grill, a Panini Press, or your choice of an extra-large double Open Grill or Griddle.
Cooking plates and 2 dishwasher-safe drip cups help drain away grease for healthy cooking
Sturdy panini-style handle with floating hinge to adjust to thickness of food
Both sets of plates are nonstick, easy to remove, and dishwasher safe
Dishwasher-safe scraping tool for easy cleanup
Brushed stainless steel housing
Convenient cord storage keeps extra cord out of the way and makes storage easy
Recipe book with 40 recipes
Instructions
Cuisinart USA Limited 3-year warranty"

With all these features I still can not determine if the lid will lay all the way back and give you two flat grill areas.

The one I have now will opens all the way and give you two areas for pan cakes, or you can close it for regular grilling.
The plates are reversable with a waffel iron grill on the reverse.
TIA,
Charlie

Good point. I also cannot determine that. I would guess it does not fold flat for a double cooking area. ...but I'm not certain.

Well, the Quisinart is sold out now. I'll keep looking around to find it.

I know this subject was raised a long time ago but I did a seach on Cuisinart Griddler here and found this.I asked for one for Christmas and my DH gave me one.I have to tell you it's GREAT!
So far I had pork chops, bone in chicken, boneless chicken breast, paninis, ham steak roasted vegetables;It is super!
I want to cook a steak on the week end.Would love to get advice from anyone here who has cooked a steak on the Griddler or a GF.Thanks.

Thanks for the advise, sage. Mine has to wait now with everything that has been going on here. You should start a thread asking about the steak issue, though. Some may not reenter here if they have already been in. You will get more responses that way. I'm glad that you like your grill. Hopefully it won't be too long before I'm able to get one.
