This Cuisinart Griddler is a mainstay at my house and has a permanent home on the counter.  It matches my other appliances being that it is stainless steel and it doesn’t take up too much room.  I previously used a George Foreman Grill occasionally but since receiving this Cuisinart as a gift, the George Foreman Grill has been sent packing.  I found the George Foreman was limited in what I could cook and was difficult to clean.  In addition, to tossing the George Foreman Grill I also eliminated a sandwich appliance (can’t recall the brand) but it was difficult to clean as well.

I use the Cuisinart Griddler grill for everything from steaks to chicken and pork chops and sometimes hamburgers, and I love that it drains the fat.  I also use it for vegetables such as Portobello mushrooms and eggplant. 

I love the griddle as well for fish, hamburgers, hash browns, pancakes, quesadillas and almost anything I would normally put in a skillet.

When you use the Panini press for sandwiches it works great as long as you use a firmer bread such as French or sourdough.  It does great with egg and cheese sandwiches, even on an English muffin.  The two sides don’t have to completely lock down to give you an evenly toasted sandwich.

I LOVE the fact that I can take the plates (griddle plates and grill plates) and throw them in the dishwasher.  This makes it super easy to cook and clean up.

I was really, really excited to purchase this grill and could not wait to bring it home. I was disappointed in my purchase and returned it to the store. There were a few positive points: it was very easy to clean, could easily fit on the counter and look nice enough to stay, it was versitile, and it was easy to adjust the temperature accordinly. However the grills themselves were thin and felt like something that would wear out easily, grease dripped down the back during use, I found myself adjusting the temperature a few times during the cooking process although I followed the instructions in order to cook the food properly, and in my opinion was not worth the money spent. The lid was weird as well, in certain positions where I would think it would stay it flopped around, I was weary that someone could get burned. I couldn't believe how poorly this product was made. If perhaps this product was made better and made to last, I would of paid more for it and kept it.

best indoor grill for steaks

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

The product is great for burgers and chicken and steaks but does not give grill marks. I love the oil drip system and the fact that it can be used for breakfast is amazing. The changeability of the sides to hae flat and edged gives you variety for cooking breakfast eggs or sausage and bacon. The flexibility lets you make a griddle and a flat top,

Fantastic Grill!!

By

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

I love this grill! I had another one just like it that my ex-roommate took when they left, but I just bought it again because I love it so much. The plates are easy to clean and it seems to heat to a good temperature for grilling without burning everything. They even have waffle plates you can buy to snap on too. The fact that it folds down into a griddle is also a great feature.

Best kitchen product

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

I adore this product. I use this more than I use any other product in my kitchen. I love that this product can be used as a griddle or a grill. I use this product to make pancakes, grilled cheeses, panini's, grilled meats and vegetables. I love that I can make two grilled cheeses at a time instead of one in a pan on the stove at a time. I love that I can make burgers or other grilled meats easily. This product is super easy to use and easy to clean. I love that the grill pans can be taken off and cleaned separately. The grill is also fairly small so storage is not an issue. I live in a pretty small house with a tiny kitchen so this is a must have product.

Performance
Cooks evenly. I love that I can use this product for so many different foods. I can make four small chicken breast or eight chicken tenders in a matter of minutes. I can make two huge or fours small burgers in just a matter of minutes. I can have dinner on the table in no time.

Durability
I have had this product for two years. I use it each and every week. The product works like it did the first day I used it.

Ease of Cleaning
The grill pans can be removed and washed. I usually have to soak the pans for a few minutes in hot soapy water. After that, the pans wipe clean very easily. The actual grill also needs to be wiped down. I use little cleaning wipes for this.

Ease of Use
Super easy to use and so fast!

Griddler

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

This is a great little griddle. You can make delicious grilled sandwiches, Grill burgers, chicken, and tons of other hot meals. This is an awesome way to cook just about anything.

Performance
Works just like a grill or skillet.

Durability
Have had mine for 3 years and it's still cookin up meals for me.

Ease of Cleaning
This is the only downside. But the griddle plates pop off so you can soak them and get them clean. It's the same as cleaning any other pan.

Ease of Use
Very easy to control heat with knobs.

Whats not to love with this in-door grill & easy to use! <3

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

It is very versatile and you can cook a lot of stuff with the grill or griddle side. At first, you might need to get use to how quick it can cook things up and get overcooked. But once you get the hang of it along with the usage of the three temperature knobs for whatever you making and cooking, which should be pretty quick, everything goes very smoothly and great! One of the favorite part that I love is probably the grease catcher, makes it much easier to deal with all the grease and fats, so less hassle too.

Performance
It is pretty much perfect to me. Works very smoothly and easy to use, no problem and headaches. xP

Durability
I had it for a few years already and still great but then I don't use it every day or weekly like some people would, so not sure if that would affect anything.

Ease of Cleaning
Really easy to click, no trouble at all with this. :)

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. I don't think anyone should have any trouble with it. :P It is just plain out easy to use and really just common sense on figuring it out.

Great choice

By 

from Connecticut

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

I have had this product for about a year and I absolutely love it!
It browns nicely on both sides, it heats evenly on both plates, the drip plate catches the grease, and it is very easy to clean because of the removable plates. What is also good is that the grill opens to lay flat, creating a large/double flat grilling surface (great for pancakes, eggs, bacon, burgers). I especially enjoy the controlled temperature selections, which my old George Foreman grill did not have. I had to write this, because I read the other reviews and wanted prospective buyers to know that I have not had the issues with this appliance that others' stated. My friend got one for a wedding gift last year and loves it. My sister has one at her summer cottage for quick meals/sandwiches/breakfast, and loves it. Everyone in my family has been pleased. Buy it, and enjoy easy grilling and quick clean up. It is so easy to use and performs so well!

Excellent griddler by far

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

I really like this griddler. I got this one after my other one died. I didnt want to spend the 200 bucks that I paid for my other one (even tho it lasted 9 years).. so I went with this one for just under 100 bucks. Im impressed.

Performance
It has so many uses, as any griddler does. it is easy to use with butttons that are easy and easy to read. Nothing "high tech" annoying about this one.

Durability
This is a very durable brand, and structure. I truly like that it is stainless steel, and feels like it will last forever!

Ease of Cleaning
Any griddler is a task to clean, as its not like they fit right in the dishwasher, and some things stick, like they do in any pan, this is no different. Its not a pain in the but, no soaking, but some light scrubbing is needed if you dont clean often. (i like to "season" mine). But it wasnt a pain, so I think you will see its quite easy.

Ease of Use
Its very easy to use. I wouldnt let my young child use it, but my teen is a pro. I think for weary parents teaching children to cook, this is perfect to start on. The buttons, and controls are simple, and not hard to read. i think you will simply love this one!

Covers all the bases

By 

from Chesterton, IN

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

Received this 5-in-1 electric grill as a wedding gift. It is a bit pricey, BUT it can do several jobs and saves you from buying individual appliances that only do ONE job. Love breakfast? It can make eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes. Are you a sandwich type of person? No problem, it grills good sandwiches and makes the perfect panini. Like some meat for dinner? Sure thing! "Grill" up some burgers, steaks, fish, or chicken. Not a meat person? Then throw on some vegetables or even tofu. This 5-in-1 grill really does it all. It's definitely not the smallest small appliance around, but you avoid having to buy a sandwich makes, an electric griddle, an indoor grill, a pancake maker, etc. I would rather store one appliance than many appliances.

I love the fact that the plates are nonstick and interchangeable. They are quite heavy and built solid. I once dropped one and not a dent or scratch on it. You can use it to make breakfast and then later that evening switch out the plates to make burgers. It's super easy to clean and haven't had any issues with food items being left stuck on.

Great for families or singles and very versatile.

Terrible Grease Problem

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

On my particular unit, the grease does not drain, instead pours out the front and sides, creating a huge mess. In addition, it spattered all over me - that was the last time I used it. Clearly the unit is defective. Cuisinart will not replace unless I pay a shipping charge. Since I already paid to have this shipped to me once, I don't see why I should pay again, since the unit is defective. But, can't get anywhere with Cuisinart. Lesson learned.

The Only Grill You Need

By 

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Cuisinart Griddler 5-in-1 Indoor Grill:

The Griddler is a multi-use product that is super easy to use and well worth your time. I used to have a George Foreman Grill and comparatively, the Griddler is champion. First off, you can use it for both griddling or grilling. I can cook hamburgers, Panini sandwhiches, ect on the grill side of the machine. On the griddle, you can cook things like pancakes, eggs, and bacon (just to name a few things).

After cooking, cleaning is a breeze! With my old grill, I would have to hold the grill out of the sink just enough that the components would not become wet and damaged when washing. It was especially important to make sure that the cord never touched water. With the griddler, you can remove the girddle/grill plates for easy washing. They can even be put into the dishwasher. This is a revolutionary concept to someone like me. It makes cleaning a much easier task. No more precariously perched grill above the sink. The plates are also made of an easily cleanable material that usually practically wipes clean.
