A griddle is a heavy, flat iron plate used to cook foods over heat. Some griddles are gas or electric and provide their own heat. Others are used over stoves, fires or grills. Food is typically cooked directly on the surface. This cooking device usually is a broad, flat surface, but occasionally you can find an appliance with small ripples to make it more like a grill.
Most devices will have a non-stick surface, but some are simply made from cast iron. The design will depend on the manufacturer. You can find this type of product from George Foreman, Nostalgia Electrics, Koolatron and many other manufacturers. The fact is, a griddle is used in homes and restaurants around the world. Consider how you can use it and its benefits as you shop through the selection so you can decide if it’s right for you.
Cooking More Than Just Breakfast
When most people think of a griddle, they probably picture pancakes and bacon piled high for a big family breakfast. However, griddles can be used in many other ways too. In fact, because it is essentially just a flat cooking surface, you can use it for almost anything. Some people employ a griddle as a hot plate. Others cook burgers, chicken, steak, prawns, skewers and other grilled meals indoors on their appliance. You could make fajitas, quesadillas, falafel patties, hashbrowns, cheesesteaks, grilled cheese sandwiches and so much more on griddles. Needless to say, this equipment has almost endless uses.
Benefits of a Griddle
While it seems this kitchen electric can be used for a lot, you may still be curious about the benefits. The appliance seems large, and most of what you can make on it you can make on a different piece of equipment. However, it is a very beneficial kitchen appliance to have. Here are just a few benefits you may notice once you buy your new griddle.
This kitchen appliance comes in a range of prices. It all depends on the size, the accessories, the heat source and the professional grade you are looking for. Its versatility and price range make it a great appliance for many kitchens.
It provides a greater surface area than most other kitchen equipment. This means you can cook big meals or just big foods with ease. Whether you’re trying to feed 20 or you just want to heat up a large tortilla, a griddle may be the tool you need.
As mentioned previously, you can use the heat underneath the cooker as a plate warmer or an area to keep already prepared dishes warm. Now, this benefit will vary based on the appliance you buy. For example, if you get a cast iron griddle with no built-in heating element, you won’t be able to use the space underneath to keep food warm because it won’t exist.
Most options have a grease tray. This can make your chicken, steak and other greasy foods a little healthier. The grease drips right off of your food into the grease tray, so you don’t have to eat it or clean it up.
The completely flat surface is beneficial for a few different reasons. First, it makes maneuvering a spatula easier. You don’t have to worry about the edges of a frying pan, so your omelets will flip with ease. Second, the heat on the surface is even. This is especially true with the self-heating options. A griddle on the stove, grill or fire may have cooler spots.
Finally, it is a great kitchen appliance to have because it frees up your stove. If you’re cooking a huge meal, you may need all the space you can get. You could be boiling noodles, making pasta sauce, cooking a vegetable, baking bread, searing meat and browning up your appetizer all at the same time. When it comes down to it, the benefits of griddles are pretty hard to ignore.

California Prop 65
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
For complete list of these chemicals, visit: http://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/proposition-65-list
What is the California Proposition 65 Warning?
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
