Cuisinart GR-150 Griddler Deluxe, Brushed Stainless
Want a small appliance that can do many jobs? One that is easy to use? The Cuisinart Griddler Deluxe is a dream come true for your home, with all it can do in cooking various foods. See full details here.
Cuisinart GR-150 has six different options for cooking your favorite dishes:
- a contact grill - half or full grill
- it can be used as a panini press
- it can be used as a griddle - half or full griddle
- Using just the top element, it will melt cheese on the top of foods
Grill And Griddle Plates
There are plates on the top and bottom. These are removable and reversible plates - one side has the grill, the other side the griddle. So it is possible to use one of each at the same time or 2 griddlen plates or 2 grill plates.
These electric griddle plates are dishwasher safe.
There is individual temperature control for both the top and bottom plate. The unit goes from warm to 450 degrees. Each side is adjust able independent of the other with the round knobs.
When the unit has reached the heat that you set, a green light comes on signaling that it is ready.
When you want to sear meat, this is controlled by the two oblong buttons (not the round ones). You just press one or both buttons, according if you want top sear, bottom sear or both.
Another nice feature of the cuisinart gr-150 griddler deluxe brushed stainless, is that you can adjust how wide the top floats above the bottom. See the right corner? That is an adjustable slide to work with the width. This allows you to heat from above without touching the food - a nice touch for melting cheese. Also as a Panini press without pressing down too hard on the food.
The drip tray lies to the back of the machine. You can see it in the video below. It also comes with a scraping tool.
For light cooking, that does not require much clean up, at the end of cooking: you may be able to put a dampish paper towel between the top and bottom, close the lid with the heat off and with the remaining heat, it creates a little steam and cleans to some extent. You can then just wipe off with another paper towel. An example would be to clean up after making pancakes.

Pros and Cons
Pros - Customers say that it is easy to use and easy to clean up. The adjustable height was also mentioned as a plus.
Cons - I had a hard time finding any cons as it is a well made small appliance. Occasionally someone mentions that it is a higher priced griddle. In this case you get what you pay for, a higher quality product.
