The Cuisinart Griddler makes multifunctional an understatement! With five separate cooking options, it can handle everything from pancakes to sausages to grilled cheese to steaks, hamburgers and Panini.
A floating cover, and one set of reversible plates that snap in and out, turn the Cuisinart Griddler into a Contact Grill, a Panini Press, a Full Grill, a Full Griddle, or Half Grill/Grill Griddle. Dual temperature controls ensure everything is perfectly cooked!
The Griddler also comes with gourmet recipes and a cleaning scraper tool. The cooking plates, drip tray, and scraper all go safely into the dishwasher.
The Cuisinart Griddler solves the typical difficult clean-up problem by making the reversible cooking plates removable, so they can be scraped off and easily cleaned by hand, or placed in the dishwasher. Can be used for Hamburgers, Fillet Mignon ( it can even taste better than it does on an outdoor grill), Grilled Cheese, Sausages, Pancakes. The cooking surface is large enough to accommodate pretty much anything imaginable to cook, it cooks evenly, cleans easily. The Griddler is definitely listed as the west bend panini press, for its ability to cook so easily on the west end.
A favorite thus far has been a whole wheat sandwich roll brushed with olive oil, add a few basil leaves, roasted peppers, sopressata and provolone, and within 3-4 minutes a truly delicious panini cooked perfectly throughout is created.
Here’s what one of the owners had to say about the Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler:
I waited to review this product because I wanted to try it with several different foods. So far I have tried it with steaks, pork chops, boneless chicken breasts, and Panini’s. All of which came out great. I did notice that with the meats, you need to season lightly because if the heat is too high, the seasoning will get dark or burn. The steaks came out with beautifully seared grill marks, and they stay very juicy. The pork chops I brined first, and they came out very juicy as well. The good thing about using this Cuisinart Griddler with the pork chops, is that they don’t…. (D.Hamilton)
