...........I just received my Cuisinart Griddler from Amazon yesterday. It is a 4-way "Contact Grill", Panini Press, Open Grill & Griddle". It was quite expensive, $129 but it is very well built and when it's closed it does not take up much space on the counter and it's really sharp looking. It comes with 2 grill plates and 2 griddle plates and they are very easy to insert and they are dishwasher safe (I personally would rather hand wash these items, but many people would like that feature)! At any rate now I have an appliance that is very handy right on my countertop that I can use in many different ways.... I've already used it and I love it!!!
I had just recently purchased a new range with the ceramic glass, so I could not use my reversible two burner grill/griddle pan because it has a "lip" on it. From now on I will use it on my outdoor grill when grilling shrimp for instance.
Just thought I would share my opinion of this neat little appliance!
