I am sitting here in the early hours of the day. The TV is on and ads for Father's Day are starting. So I got to thinking. No, don't call the fire department. That smoke is coming from my brain.

Do you have a favorite or two story about your father? We would love to her them. You can honor your father by sharing some of you memories. So I will start.

The city had planted a tree across the street from our home. In the morning my father would go to over to that tree and give it a gentle shake. He was waking up the birds so that they were starting their day with me.

Of course I know now that the as small as that tree was there were no birds in it. But I still remember him going there to wake the birdies so they would be part of my day.

Now it is your turn.

Because you can get the same results with a brick wrapped in HD foil and do it in your cast iron pan. Brick is free and the foil is inexpensive. Am I too late?

Good price. I think another kitchen gadget would be great. I can't give you a reason not to get it.

Have you seen the size of that machine? It is huge. Takes up a lot of counter space. What are the dimensions? Storage is another issue.

you are not too late, sweetie. nice effort, too! but there are still these hurdles to get past: dare i admit this here at dc? i no longer own an iron pan of any size.(blush) and i have no grill-plated cooking surface. the cuisinart has double-sided cooking plates, a drip tray for healthy grilling, and easy, dishwasher safe components. addie, can you argue against these compelling features?

Buy the Griddler. It's a good tool. I use it for burgers, chicken breasts, pannini and pancakes. Works great!

No. I too have no iron pan and probably for the same reason. Too heavy. So go for it. The price is right. Order it right now before the price goes up. And good luck with it.
