The prices on the Cuisinart Griddler GR-4 are fairly off putting. Anybody suggest any alternatives??

Did you know that it's on sale at Amazon right now?

I was looking at (a much higher priced) one just yesterday in Williams Sonoma -- I may have to order one.

deLonghi or Hamilton Beach or Emerilware all look decent. We have a very early one (can't remember brand) and have had problems with the thermostat. My husband finally removed it and we just stand over it to make sure it doesn't overcook. Still, it is a very useful appliance: instant panini, virtually no clean-up.

off putting? real(commercial) grills/griddles are a good amount more. i wouldn't wast money on anything less than the gr-4, and would actually spend the extra hundred or so for the better one.

Thanks, everyone, for the feedback. I went on and ordered a GR-4.

Damn, I was going to suggest a branding iron might be cheaper and more hard wearing. smile.gif

We got a Griddler entirely on credit card points... check and see if you have a loyalty program that offers it, or a $$$ plus points option.

I want a Griddler ($90 at Costco). Does anyone have the waffle plates? Unless they make crappy waffles, I'd rather spend another $40 on those than buy a separate waffle maker.
