Presto began business in 1905 in Eau Claire, WI and has been manufacturing quality home and kitchen appliances for almost 115 years. They have a variety of electric griddles in their arsenal, we think that this unit is the best.
The surface is non-stick, allowing for easy clean up. The drip tray is convenient and can be put into the dishwasher, a nice benefit. As is true with most non-stick surfaces, you will want to make sure that you use silicone rubber kitchen utensils to avoid scratches.
The power source is fairly basic but powerful enough to handle most cooking jobs. The 1500 watt cord and power head fit nicely into the top corner of the frame. We found the heat distribution to be excellent, no cold spots were found. The surface heated quickly and maintained a very even heat, even for long periods of time.
Presto has made this unit with a sturdy cast aluminum frame that wont warp or twist. The handles are well made and solid. We removed the handles many times to test the latches and they showed no signs of wear or slippage.
The cooking surface is also solid. There is a slight lip all the way around the edge but it creates no problems when you are turning foods. With over 220 square inches of cooking surface, you want a solid griddle.
Being oversized means that you can cook more food at one time. This electric griddle will easily hold 10 grilled cheese sandwiches at one time. Its large enough that you can have 4 pancakes on one half of the griddle and 4 eggs frying on the other half. It can easily cook hash browns on one side and sausages on the other.
I bought this appliance as a gift to my uncle aunt who visited us and they really loved it, we loved it so we gifted one to them. It is a multi-purpose appliance as we use it make huge omelettes, pancakes and other rice flour recipes.
D H Presto 22-inch Ceramic Electric Griddle with Removable Handles This electric griddle is perfect for cooking a large amount of food at once. The nonstick surface means easy cleanup afterwards, and the removable handles make finding storage space easy. Get the family involved with cooking brunch without fear of food burning because the Master Heat Control automatically maintains desired cooking temperature!
Our old Presto unit simply wore out - the non-stick surface became sticks every time surface; we had gotten excellent service out of it and decided that we'd stick with Presto if we could find one that had decent ratings and a reasonable price.
I also saw some reviews mention the textured cooking surface. A least from my experience, that is not a negative factor in cooking performance or the appearance of the food. From my first batch of pancakes, I could see no difference other than the pancakes turned out better than what I was able to cook on my last griddle. Unlike most griddles I have owned over the years, I could see no evidence of a hot spot where the area of a pancake over the heating element would cook darker than the rest of the pancake. Put simply, this griddle is a keeper!
.Â I've only used about 6 times so I cannot vouch for longevity, but it cooks very evenly and the non stick surface is effective. . My wife has made some darn near perfect pancakes with this baby!Â .Â "
