Things I Love Thursday: Cuisinart Griddler
For more things to love, check out The Diaper Diaries! Each and every Thursday bunches of people link up their favorite things!
The same day that we bought my steam mop, we also bought the Cuisinart Griddler. I've been looking for an indoor grill/griddle for a long time, and until recently I guess I just haven't been thrilled with the options. I wanted something that was versitile, something that I could use to make lots of things, not just pancakes or just grilled chicken or burgers. I have an average sized kitchen, but even so I don't have room for small appliances that can only do ONE thing. I considered getting an electric skillet for a while... but then banished that idea from my mind because where would I put it???
Enter the Griddler! It comes with 2 sets of metal plates that can be interchanged depending on what you're making. One set is like a grill, the other is like a griddle, hence the name. PLUS! It folds in half so that it can also be used as a pannini press! How cool is that?!
So far I've used it to make grilled cheese sandwiches, pancakes, and chicken. There's never been a need to spray anything on it to prevent sticking. Everything always comes out perfectly cooked. And the plates can be washed in the dishwasher. I'm totally thrilled with it!
