Review of BroilKing PCG-10 Professional Portable Nonstick Griddle
This BroilKing PCG-10 Professional Portable Nonstick Griddle is a heavy-duty cast aluminum griddle and one of the best electric griddles available in the market. Pancakes are just too perfect in this griddle.
The product has a large cooking surface area of 21”x12”, thus making this model one of the largest electric griddles available in the market. This features a splatter guard, which protects your walls and countertops from splattering oil and grease.
The non-stick coating on the cooking surface prevents the food from sticking to it. It is recommended to avoid using the metal utensils to protect the nonstick coating.
This Broilking professional griddle also features the ability to tilt the cooking surface by using its rear legs. Its rear legs help facilitate grease run-off and removable grease-tray neatly catch any grease, making cleanup a cinch. This eases up the cleaning process while making the food less greasy and healthier.
It has an environment-friendly nonstick ceramic coating that reaches the adjustable heat of up to 450ºF and maintains the set temperature throughout. It features stainless steel cool-touch handles for easier and safer use.
Though this Broilking professional electric griddle is large, cleaning it up is not as hefty as the griddle itself is. The nonstick cooking surface, removable drip tray, and tilt feature really speed up the cleaning process. Since the heat control is removable, the PCG 10 model is fully submersible into the soapy water after the heat control is separated. Also, it is dishwasher safe but the problem is finding a dishwasher big enough to fit its bulky size.
It is recommended to have enough room in the kitchen countertop and cabinet for its storage. Because of its sheer size and weight, not all kitchen countertop and cabinet can handle it.
This Broilking griddle distributes the heat evenly across its cooking area with barely any temperature fluctuations. The surface is much thicker as compared to other electric griddles, particularly the Presto brand. The thick cooking surface is the reason for its slow heating; it takes a longer time to get fully heated.
Though the unit distributes heat evenly across the cooking surface, however, it can be noticed that the left side of the cooking surface tends to get a bit hotter than the right. This probably is caused by the curving heating element on the left side of the product. But once the unit reaches its set temperatures, it maintains the heat pretty well.
This steady griddle has become successful to impress Consumer Search, Cook’s Illustrated and other online review sites. Cook’s Illustrated found that the griddle remained at the set temperature throughout the cooking surface better than any other griddle.
This unit is one of the biggest electric griddles that can reach high temperatures than most griddles. In addition, it is easy to clean and cook but it’s a bit pricey than others. It comes with a two-year warranty and is expected to last for years.
