If you want one you can throw in the dishwasher, maybe look at an enamel coated one.
Kohls.com has quite a variety and all kinds of 15% off right now.

The all clad one is anodized.. which is not recommended for the dishwasher.
Some have put their anodized cookware in the washer and state it still works fine.. just doesn't look as nice anymore.. no personal experience though.

Seems like anodized griddles are kind of popular right now, but the Kohls site does have some that are enamel coated and a variety of square griddles and double burner.

Hope that helps!

I like my cast iron, round griddle. It heats evenly, and with making pancakes, there is virtually no clean-up, just a wipe with a paper towel.

What's so inconvenient about an electric griddle? IMO, the thermostat makes it superior to a stovetop model.

Well, I opted to get an All-Clad square single burner griddle. It received good reviews. I am also going to buy the round cast iron griddle but it is only 10 1/2 inches. We will use it for smaller jobs.

Go on Ebay and get an old round Griswold or Wagner griddle from the early years. These are the bomb!! Nobody makes one that comes close to these, early very smooth finish, cast iron griddles. I have purchased a #9 for $20- 30. It looks like new. Season with shortning and you can will it to your grandkids. No nonstick can compete.

I'm a huge fan on cast iron, but when it comes to pancakes I fail to see the benefit.

The old cast iron griddles were cast and finished with a very smooth finish. You build up the carbon on this finish produces a very slick and durable coating that just lasts forever. New cast iron is just to rough.

Demeyere cookware

This one is dishwasher safe... they also have a non stick version. Demeyere is expensive but heavy duty.
