I have always loved having a stove top griddle, and have been using the same one for years, so much so, that it is beginning to warp, and the handle is cracking, but yet, it is my most used pan in my kitchen.

I have decided that it is time to break down and get another stove top griddle, so I have done my homework, and now feel like the griddle expert. I will share a bit of this acquired knowledge with you and then you get to decide which one will work best for your cooking needs.

The griddles that I am writing about are double sized, to fit over two burners, and will still leave you room to cook with your other two burners. Remember, because it is sitting on two burners, the surface heat will be a bit uneven, but I actually use the middle section for things that are near done, keeping them warm.

Kitchen Essentials from Calphalon, Hard Anodized Double Griddle
This griddle is from a great brand of cookware, and this is no different. It has a great non-stick surface, which is extremely durable. Perfect for making pancakes, eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches, or french toast. Features heat resistant, silicone covered handles. Because it is made of heavy-gauge, hard-anodized aluminum, it will not chip, crack or peel.

KitchenAid Hard-Base Porcelain Aluminum Nonstick Griddle

This griddle measures 18 x 10 inches, and spans over two burners as do the griddles listed prior. This has the nonstick interior, with a porcelain enamel exterior. It features a patented hard-base ceramic nonstick surface that is durable and scratch resistant. There is also convenient and safe soft-grip red silicon rubber handles.

You can't go wrong with either stove top griddle choice, and you will be enjoying cooking for a few or many, either way, you will be ready, and the clean up will be a breeze.
