If you are cooking for a crowd, you will love this Presto 07037 Jumbo Cool Touch Electric Griddle. This griddle offers a large cooking surface of 10.5”x20.5”, hence it is perfect for cooking enough food for a large crowd. While this has a much larger surface compared to small electric griddles available in the market like Presto Liddle Griddle, there are enough griddles that can compete with the size of its cooking surface, so it is not unusually big.
You can cook all kinds of delicious foods on this from pancakes, French toasts to grilled cheese and more. Whether it is breakfast or lunch or dinner, there is plenty of room for cooking several things at once.
This model of Presto electric griddle has a ledge around the entire surface that gives a backstop for easier flipping of food items.
The body of the griddle is made of cast aluminum, which is light, quite rigid and good for even heating. And it is resistant to warping. The cooking surface has a premium nonstick coating that reduces the amount of oil needed and making the food healthier. Safety measures need to be taken not to scratch the surface and metal instruments should not be used as they scratch and peel out the nonstick coating.
It’s rated 1500 watts of power and that works with any 120v outlet. Temperature can be regulated by a temperature knob, it maintains even heat ranging from an undefined ‘warm’ up to 400ºF. like any other electrical appliance, it is important to read the manual that comes with the product and follow the given instructions.
The removable drip tray is under the griddle that catches greases and drippings while cooking. Its cool-touch base surrounds the cooking surface on the front and both sides, which allows easy maneuvering of the unit.
The non-stick coating on the cooking surface prevents the food from sticking and makes the cleaning process easier. Its heating control is detachable and after its removal, the griddle is fully submersible in warm, soapy water for cleaning. This has a removable drip tray that drains the excess grease while cooking and also makes the easy cleanup. This model is also dishwasher safe.
The storage of this Presto cool touch electric griddle may not be easy for those who have a small kitchen because of its jumbo size. Also, it has a short plug-in cord, which means you must have a power outlet very near to the kitchen countertop, or place it where the power outlet is.
If you are making greasy food, make sure you are cooking in a well-ventilated area because of the greasier the food, the greater the smoke. Another good thing is you can find the recommended temperature heat settings for a variety of foods on the instructions booklet that comes with the product.
Most of the large electric griddles in the market have some issues with uneven heating but this model doesn’t show such a problem. Its users are quite satisfied with its even heating across the cooking surface.
