The electric griddle by DASH is one of the best looking small kitchen appliances on the market. Luckily, this griddle works as nicely as it looks. Not only is it one of the sleekest looking electric griddles around, it performs as well as any other griddle.
They key to any good electric griddle will always be how well the appliance works when it comes to cooking food. Are you able to count on the heat source working? Can you avoid hot spots on the cooking surface? Is the temperature control accurate?
The answer to all three of those questions is yes when it comes to the DASH electric griddle. The heat probe power source plugs snugly into the end of the unit, with a power cord that is plenty long. The cooking surface is non-stick and it is designed to make sure that the heat is distributed evenly all over the surface. No hot spots, no cool spots, just a steady, even temperature.
A Cooking Surface Large Enough For Almost Any Type Of Food
At 20″ X 10 1/2″, the cooking surface on the DASH griddle is extra large. This size allows you to cook multiple foods at the same time. Some skillets call themselves extra large, but they often have only 165 to 180 square inches of usable cooking surface. This griddle has 210 square inches, almost 20% more than some other models. It also is PFOA free, giving you the comfort of knowing that there is no chemical exposure.
Clean up is a breeze with this appliance. The griddle surface is non-stick and can be wiped off with a soapy dish cloth. The body of the griddle is also easy to clean, it usually just needs a wiping down. The drip tray removes easily and can go right into the dishwasher.
Not only does this griddle work well, it looks amazing. Instead of black plastic legs and a black piece of plastic stuck at the end of the griddle, this design is sleek and rounded. The wrap around covering is available in 4 colors and gives the entire appliance a fun high tech look.
From a value stand point, this electric griddle is a bit more expensive than some other options. Priced around $50, it is at the upper end of the price range for grills but it does a very good job at cooking food. If you can afford the extra cost, you will love the way this appliance looks and how well it works.
