Looking for a heavy, non-stick, aluminum griddle

We have been using a heavy Club aluminum non-stick griddle for about 15 years. It's approximately 11" square. It works great, takes a little while to heat up but makes perfect pancakes, french toast, sandwiches, etc. Unfortunately the non-stick has finally worn though. I'm looking for a replacement, but all I find are thin aluminum pans that do not cook evenly. We tried a Calphalon and were disappointed with its performance, and returned it.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on a heavy, thick, non-stick aluminum griddle.

I have a heavy aluminum All Clad griddle that I love. It's a 2 burner rectangular one.

I would highly recommend it.

I think Andy might have the same one.

I don't have an All-Clad. I had a Nordicware griddle but don't use it anymore.

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

I have a cast iron rectangular griddle that fits over two burners. Works great. It was pre-seasoned so it's non-stick.

I use a Lodge? 12inch round cast iron griddle. Found it at Target I think. Love it. Nothing ever sticks to it. Have to be patient while letting it heat before using it.

I had one from Nordicware too. I did not like it was too light weight. Finally for rid off it, been wanting to find new myself.

I think Andy might have the same one.
Amazon.com: All-Clad 3020 Hard Anodized Aluminum Nonstick Double Burner Grande 13-Inch X 20-Inch Griddle Specialty Cookware, 20-Inch, Black: Grill Pans: Kitchen & Dining

Although it's pricy, it looks like a dandy Jenny and if I were in the market I'd get that one.
Many people just can't deal with the weight of cast iron.

This is the one I had. Amazon.com: Nordic Ware 2-Burner Reversible Grill Griddle, 20 by 10-3/4 Inch: Double Sided Two Burner Grill: Kitchen & Dining

No issues with the grill/griddle.

The griddle Jenny has weighs 7 pounds. My cast iron one weighs 10 pounds. It's not that big a difference. Would be good for the biceps 💪

Thank you all for the great replies.

I should have included more information. We're using a glass/ceramic cooktop, so I think that eliminates cast-iron cookware. I'm also looking for a single-burner griddle.

For reference, I've included a couple of pictures that show the thickness and structure of our current Club griddle. It weighs 4 lbs, about twice what I've seen for new aluminum replacements.


Thank you,
Jeff
