I have the one Andy linked to and love it. It is heavy and a tad smaller than I expected but it has made some really nice pancakes (and various other things).

The one I linked is as good as any. There are other manufacturers who use different materials to make equally good grill/griddles. Perhaps you should google with your specifications to get the most relevant results.

Like I've said elsewhare, I had a Lodge stovetop grill/griddle and all it did for 6 years was secure the bottom panel of my oven to the rest of the stove. If you're going to spend money I recommend the George Foreman G5, which can grill, griddle, and make waffles. The lid has some heft to it, so it also does pretty good panini.

The removable/interchangeable plates can be hand washed or tossed into the dishwasher. Just be sure to squirt some cooking spray on them before use, especially when making waffles.

I believe Cuisinart makes one of those, too... the Griddler. I saw it in an infomercial a while back and almost pulled the trigger on one. It looks like a handly electric cooker. The removeable plates look great for cleanup.

I have the Griddler from Cuisinart and it's a great small appliance. I use it for pancakes and panini. I've also used it for chicken breasts.
