Does anyone have one of these?

Does anyone have this cookware item?

It sits on two gas or electric burners at once. One side is a smooth griddle side for making things like pancakes, bacon, etc.

The other side is like a grill which is used to cook burgers, chicken pieces and steaks, which also leave grill marks on the meat.

I guess what I'm trying to describe here is a reversable griddle or grill. I have one, and have found it to be very useful when cooking meats and making breakfast items!

I have an All Clad griddle that I like a lot. It's not reversable.

IMO the "grill" thingie is pretty useless.

The one that I got is an elcheapo, from either AJ Wright or Walgreens.

I does have a no-stick surface, but I oil it anyway because the thing tends to cause foods to stick to it.

I've seen the kind you're talking about Corey, and I thought at the time how handy that would be. But I really do not have room for even one more thing.

Kim's co-workers got him a really nice GE electric griddle when he retired in January. It sure is great when you're making breakfast for several people. It will hold a pound of bacon easily, plus several smoky links!
I wish I'd had it when I was cooking for all those teenage boys who used to come to "G'ma's" house for breakfast after morning football practice in the summer. Their mom's all worked, but Erik's grandma didn't, and how this grandma loved cooking for those kids!

I have one made of Cast Iron by Lodge Manufacturing. I don't think I have ever used the ribbed side. I have use it for pancakes, warming buns/bread, grilled cheese, frying an egg, ham, just about anything you can use a flat top for. You can toast an english muffini, cook and egg, and ham/sausage for a Egg macmuffin! on the same surface at the same time. It's just another handy option. I also have their 12 in round griddle.

Enjoy!

When not in use, I keep it stored in the original box between the fridge and the kitchen's back wall near the window.

It's flat, so it stores really easy!

I have one of those Lodge grills, Bob, But it doesn't work on my glass-top stove. I also have NEVER been able to get cast iron seasoned properly, no matter what directions I follow.

Miss Connie,

They make a 10 1/2 in round one that might be the 'cats meow' for your stove top. Follow their directions for seasoning and then just use it. The real good seasoning actually comes from repetitive use over months, and years. I also use my 12 in one to bake sweet potatoes on. It want be to many more weeks before they start digging sweet potatoes here so ya need to get ready!

Have fun and Enjoy!
