I have often desired a griddle, but did not have the counter or cupboard space to put one of the large size ones I often saw in stores. Then I saw the Liddle Griddle and knew it was made for me. Plus when you are cooking for one (or two) it is the perfect size. It is easy to clean after using too, it heats qucikly and cooks evenly. It makes doing grilled cheese sandwiches, french toast and pancakes, plus bacon and eggs so much easier to prepare rather than cooking them in a frying pan like I did in the past.. There is ample cooking surface to allow quick meal preperation and the even cooking temperature ensures no burning of food. I am so glad I made this purchase and I think you will be happy with it too.
