Kinda funny about the "slipping around" part. Our Griddler has rubber pads at all 4 corners of the base and it doesn't move at all.

Mine doesn't slip either. In fact, I make sure it's exactly where it needs to be before I start to pre-heat it. Once the thing warms up, I do not need my fingers touching it!

Taking a break from laundry here...

Really. No slip on yours?
Ours has 4 small black pegs? Can't call them legs (they are hard plastic dots)

It was slipping just by lifting the lid. I just checked it by lifting it up to see exactly what kind of pegs I do have underneath. Grease just leaked out of the crevices. The plates were put on correctly. Drain pan had some grease in it.It's since been washed and put back in.

I'm thinking this should go back. Concerned about a fire hazard.
They could have at least made it so the lid could lock for storage.

Maybe it slipped because we have tiled counters.

This one looks like the one we bought. Except on the box it's called Cuisinart Griddler Gourmet.

Sorry to hear you're having problems. My older model doesn't have the internal drip pan. Maybe it wasn't set in lace properly.

Your description does not match my experience at all. Ours is the one, as I can discern, the one you cite in the link. Not a "Gourmet" model.

We have none of the issues you report.

The photo of the unit in that link looks just like mine, too. They didn't show a photo of the bottom, so what mine looks like is at the bottom of this post. However, I have four, index-fingernail sized rubber pads, each on set into the molded circle in the base. I've never had it slip on my counter (circa 2000 formica). Then I tested it on my 1950s formica table (nope), wooden table (again, nope), and finally on top of the dryer, since I store it in the basement. No slipping there, either.

Not sure there is any way to prevent grease from leaking out if you are tipping the unit backwards to check underneath the unit...

Our Griddler looks exactly like CG's and doesn't scoot on any surface we've put it on. Also, no problems with leaking grease. If it sits on a level surface and you don't tilt it, there shouldn't be a problem.

I believe that she said it leaked AFTER cleaning, meaning that grease was getting into places that it wasn't supposed to.

That's strange. We've had ours for several years and that's never happened and...I've probably cooked a ton of bacon in it, which is one of the things I like to use it best for.

I can't imagine where the grease is going. The catch tray at the bottom of ours works perfectly, as do the channels that are on the plates that feed the grease to the catch tray.

It's a puzzle to me.

I just re-read it and I may have been wrong. Tilting it when there is grease in the catch tray would be a mistake.
