This griddle has its pros and cons. The pros of this product is that it does a nice even job of cooking pancakes. The con of it, is that there is no guide in which you should cook the pancake at. Luckily my parents have a griddle and I know that you cook pancakes at 350 degrees. I just think that it is odd that in the griddle recipe book that they give you 10+ recipes but not a temperature to cook any of the recipes at. You just have to have some common sense and you have to just try trial and error to figure out the right temperatures to cook something.
