In an effort to make the most of the kitchen gadgets and appliances I already have, I tend to put off purchasing something I really want and would use frequently for a long time (like a year or more). It has been no different in figuring out if I would really get enough use out of an electric griddle…
A few weeks ago, after deciding that having 3 skillets going on the stove with the same thing in each was just too much for me, I realized that it was pretty much a necessity. Different size burners, different pans/skillets, etc. was just frustrating to me. I couldn’t cook enough pancakes, french toast, grilled sandwiches, bacon, etc. at once to prevent me from having to do several batches each time.
So, guess what I did? I purchased this griddle. Guess what else? I didn’t even do a price comparison or even so much as look online. I purchased it for $25 at Super Target and called it good!!
I am in love! I can whip up 8 sandwiches or slices of french toast, 6-8 pancakes, 10-12 slices of bacon, etc. all at one time now! It’s saving me a lot of hassle and time and that to me is worth the $25 I spent on it.
My favorite feature (other than it’s “family” size) is that once you remove the probe/cord, it’s fully submersible (just make sure it’s completely dry before it’s plugged back in)!! That means, even though it doesn’t fit in my sink, I can wash it without fear of getting something electrical wet!!
