Saw a neighbor doing pancakes on an electric griddle. He loved his after 4 years of use. Plenty hot and adjustable, Teflon surface, submersible for cleaning, compact easy to store. I want one. Seems so much nicer than propane. Any other experience good or bad?

We carry an electric griddle as well. Pancakes, French Toast or a pound of Bacon. :cool: Easier if we're having friends over for breakfast too.

We bought one less than a year ago. DH cooks mostly, so he loves it. Easy to use, cooks great for sausage, bacon, eggs, pancakes, French toast, and grilled cheese sandwiches!! Cleans up fairly easy too (my job). Ours is not submersible.

I went a different route, I have a Loge cast iron reversible griddle/grill plate that I can use with my induction cooktop burner, or a propane burner. It is not as large as an electric griddle, but takes up very little storage space as it is flat. Add to that the fact that I have abandoned barbecuing in favor of using a grill pan surface and liquid smoke.

We have been using the Coleman gas griddle for years. We rarely camp anywhere there is electricity, so a plug in wouldn't work for us. The Coleman works great IMO.

I've used for burgers, but use my cooking disc more often...

Last year at the Northeast Regional Rally in Gettysburg, PA, John Proto and/or John Bylinski had these Presto Griddles. Love them. Great for pancakes, bacon, fried eggs and such.

Here's mine - this morning I cooked a pound of bacon on it, wiped it clean and cooked pancakes on it:

I agree with Jim on the presto griddle. They work great for a lot of purposes.

I wear out Presto skillets as I do most cooking at home on, have to try one of their griddles.

29091 29092. Jim, just got back from WalMart. They had a bunch of this one and we had it in our cart when we noticed an Oster brand with ceramic cook surface and warming tray tagged for $29... At check out it showed $15 ??? Mistake? Don't know but we paid the $15..... We'll see how it works out.

We have the Presto. We love it. I can cook bacon, hash browns, and eggs on it all at the same time.

I have the Presto griddle in the rig as well as the house:) It's an easy clean-up and storage...light weight is good for the rv. But I will have to check out the ceramic one Terry (MTPockets) mentioned next time I'm @ Wally-mart.
We also carry the griddle accessory for our propane grills, one is a Cuisinart the other is the Coleman Roadtrip....but for breakfast stuff I stay inside the rig & use the Presto...don't want to scare any nearby campers !!:eek:

We have an electric frying pan. I want a griddle too though. I like to use them outside on a table plugged in to the outside receptacle. I won't fry meat inside the trailer if there is a way I can prevent it.

Way to deal Terry! I just went to Walmart tonight and looked for another Presto like mine and they didn't have it. Bought some other brand. Rival maybe.

We have been using electric grills for years they are awesome especially for breakfast items. Presto seems to be the most popular and of course can't beat the Walmart price.

Well for those of you who were hoping to get this grill from Walmart as I was - it appears that it is not available online and in my area at least not available instore. But I was able to find it on line via many e-tailers ... but most of the sites that have comparable prices charge an fairly high shipping charges... I did just notice this morning that of all places, Home Depot sells this and with Free Shipping for less than $30.00

We recently bought the "griddler" that is a little more versatile, and can be used as a standard griddle, but also has ribbed inserts for grilling steaks, chicken fillets, etc. It can also be used as a panino sandwich press.

Just looked on Amazon - must be 20 different versions of the Presto griddle.

Yes I found the. Same thing. Some are not dishwasher safe and some even say not to submerge in water. I'd love to know how you wash those.

Just a note on non-stick cooking surfaces washability. I know that there are many types and formulations of non-stick, but with many the performance of the coating can be harmed by detergents. I always just wash mine in fresh hot water only. Also, sources say that the propellants used in many spray cooking oils harm non-stick surfaces. Use a pump sprayer for oil, or spray oil brands using CO2 as a propellant.

I also have the Presto. I cook breakfast outside on a table and the campers by us always come by for a smell when that bacon hits the griddle. :)

I have the regular Presto-great for bacon and pancakes. I broke the grease catcher drawer and couldn't find a replacement so I use a small pie plate to catch the drippings.

I have the Presto Griddle. Usually on Black Friday, you can find it for 9.99 after rebates. I got mine at Khol's.

I have a cast iron griddle that came with my camp chef stove. It's big and heavy but you can cook a lot of pancakes on it. Or, you can have a hibachi dinner like Benihanas!

We'd like to come to that one, but the Colorado HOC Fall Rally is the week before (which we will be attending), so we won't be able to do both (darn it).

We missed it (Fajita Night) as we were still in Phoenix getting the trailer fixed . . . so can't wait for Tucson and a griddle breakfast!

We still have that 3-bin warmer thingy in the trailer that we were supposed to provide for the Fajita Night At Quartzsite, so we will have it next February in Tucson!

Along with the DJ equipment!
