The Cuisinart GR-4 Griddler is a good addition to the kitchen of a busy household. It is small and takes little counter/storage space, although I hope future models incorporate the locking mechanism which would allow you to store it on its side. It is very efficient when closed to grill meat, chicken, fish and sandwiches but when opened flat as a griddle I found it too slow too fry eggs and have reverted to a frying pan for convenience. I like the under the grill drip pan which is locked in place, thus avoiding accidental spills. Although labelled dishwasher safe, the corrosive nature of most dishwasher soaps might shorten the life of the stick-free surface and so I prefer to wash it by hand- so easy to do. Bottom line, a good product.Read More

The griddler works as advertized and met my goals of making great paninis. The removable griddles are easy to clean up and reinstall. Using the griddler is foolproof with the dials well marked. The only possible drawback is that the top portion may not fully lay flat (parallel to the bottom grill) on a rather thick sandwich; i.e., over the upper portion of the bread.. Pressing down the top griddle would only flatten the back portion of the sandwich more than the front portion. One has to turn the thick sandwich around to be sure the entire top is evenly browned. This is a minor issue with the design of the Cuisinart griddler. The unit can easily accommodate two large sandwiches or more depending on the size of the breads. I have not yet used it to grill hamburgers. Will be getting the optional plates for making waffles as I love waffles. Very happy with the product and recommend it.Read More
I've wanted to buy a panini press for a while, and mainly my only criteria was that the plates be removable for cleaning. When I came across the Cuisinart GR-4 Griddler, I knew it was exactly what I wanted. Not only are the plates removable for cleaning, but also reverse to a flat grill. I will most likely purchase the optional waffle iron accessory. So far, I have only used the Griddler as a panini press, but the results have been wonderful. My only complaint is that you have to sort of manually set the top of the press onto the top of the sandwich in order for it to be level. If you just lower the lid with the handle, it usually ends up at an angle, and cooks the sandwich unevenly, despite the floating hinges. This has to be done carefully, as the top of the unit gets VERY hot. But once you have it arranged properly, pure deliciousness! Extremely easy to clean. The plates can just be wiped off if not too dirty, or popped off to wash, and both removal and replacement couldn't be easier. I would definately recommend this to anyone who is going to be serious about making panini sandwiches!Read More
