More and more people are looking for healthy ways to prepare food at home and are adding kitchen appliances to make that easier. One of the most popular choices is cooking on a griddle because not only is it healthy and fun—the aroma that floats in the air while using an electric griddle gets everyone’s appetites primed and ready to go.
Presto, Wolfgang Puck and All-Clad offer a good selection of griddles in different sizes, plate styles and with various accessories that can make the whole process easy, neat and delicious. For a great non-electric choice check out a double-burner griddle which sits across two burners and uses the stoves heat to cook the food.
First consider size; will it be used to prepare food for one or two people or for a whole crowd on a regular basis? How much room is available to store the griddle? Where will it be used—on the stove top, on the countertop or at the table?
A stainless steel griddle is a great choice for a long lasting appliance that’s also easy to clean. Look for a version with removable nonstick plates and a metal drain cup for catching drips. A press-style griddle should have floating hinges so the plates can easily adjust to the thickness of the food. Some models come with special cleaning tools and most have temperature control and lights to indicate when the food is ready.
To preserve the non-stick surface on most electric griddles for as long as possible, consider starting a collection of coated kitchen tools like pancake flippers and tongs to use when preparing foods.
The best griddles available are the electric griddles that plug in. These are wonderful appliances because they're convenient and heat up quickly. They're also larger than pans so more food can be cooked at the same time. Many families use these griddles to cook pancakes, sausage, and eggs for a large family breakfast. They're also great when cooking for a large group, such as cooking fried chicken when extended family comes to visit.
There’s a griddle to fit almost every appetite and the variety of sizes and designs makes it easy to find one to fit almost every kitchen. Don’t miss out on this fun and healthy way to cook. Browse the selection and find a great electric griddle today at Macy’s.
