Make sure you push the cord ALL THE WAY IN and then it heats up fast and nicely. The first time we used it I set it up and thought the cord was all the way in - and it got warm.. but slowly and it wasn't getting hot. Just when we were about to call it quits my fiance took out the cord and pushed it back in - roughly. it made a snap sound and we instantly saw it got much hotter.
Finding one with a drip pan was hard. I can't say this is HIGH QUALITY - but its good and for the price it exceeds my expectations - and it has my much desired drip pan :)
My old griddle was given to me as a gift and was just used up and had to be replaced after reviewing several brands i selected the proctor silex 38513 let me tell you it is a great replacement and certainly lives up to it's 5 star rating try it out you will love it.
Love the space on this griddle...can do six medium sized pancakes at a time. I love to make special pancakes with my granddaughters ( Mickey Mouse etc), and it's easy to do with them helping me. Easy clean-up. I find myself making pancakes more than I used to.
My husband has wanted one of these for quite a while. I purchased it shortly after Christmas, and we use it at least twice a week. It's great that we can cook a meal for three and enjoy a family meal together. Previously, if we had breakfast, it needed to be cooked one person at a time; this did not allow us to eat together and still enjoy warm food. We are trying to change our eating habits, and this is helping. Since it has a non stick surface we are not using oil. The grill has a slight slant so any grease coming from the food is drained and collected into a cup. The clean up is quick and easy and the temperature is adjustable. the value was great, I was not able to locate one this size at this price in the stores. We are very happy with it.
Overall, I'm happy with the griddle. It certainly allows you make a nice big batch of pancakes in a short amount of time. The adjustable temperature is handy, and you don't need to spray the top with cooking oil---the pancakes don't stick! The pancakes all cook evenly, unlike some of the Presto models I've used in the past. Clean up is easy. The only thing I don't like is that the cooking tray is not removable to be able to completely immerse in water. The tray can be washed with soap and water but you need to be careful not to get the electrical component wet (like most electrically appliances of this nature.) There is a drip tray that removes and can be washed. When making pancakes, the unit doesn't get dirty like it would be sausages or something greasy. I would purchase again.
1500-watt ensure supreme power for this griddle with warming tray and grease tray. Adjustable 450-degree temperature control gives ultimate control of cooking cycles. Thank you in assisting with our product.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 26, 2013
