Breakfast to Burgers…Brilliant. (And a Giveaway!)

I have a LOT of appliances.

It seems as a food blogger, I’ve amassed pretty much the equivalent of a Bed Bath & Beyond in my kitchen.  You’d be surprised at how many gadgets you are asked to review, how many toasters, how many coffee pots.  I say no a LOT, too. No, I don’t need another waffle iron, I’m pretty much set with the 4 I have, thanks.

griddleSo when I was sent this Cuisinart Griddler Combo from Big Kitchen, my first thought was I really don’t need another appliance.

But I was wrong.

This one is really a cool gadget.  It’s an indoor grill as well as a griddle, making it more functional that having one of each. (who has room for that??)  You see, it has these plates, and one side is flat, while the other side has a raised grill. Clever. The non-stick surface is fantastic, too – we’ve made the greasiest burgers on them, and only needed to wipe the surface down a bit before washing.

Good stuff – I hate to clean.

Pancakes are also super easy to make on the flat side – you can make 4 at a time, and being able to regulate the temperature is helpful (at least to me – my electric stovetop likes to ruin my pancakes when I’m not paying attention.) Does yours do that?  Like, it’s not hot enough one minute, and the next minute you have charred pancakes? No?  Okay then, me neither.  But I do love pancakes, and this griddle has me in the mood for more.

Here are a few pancake recipes I’ve marked to try out soon…

The Giveaway

I ended up liking this little grill/griddle so much that I’ve arranged for one of YOU to have one too, courtesy of Big Kitchen.  It would make a great gift for someone who loves being in the kitchen, or just loves having the latest gadget.  Or for you to keep. I won’t judge…I have 4 waffle irons.

imageDo you need four waffle irons?  You really should take a look at Big Kitchen.  They offer a complete selection of kitchen products including appliances, cookware, bakeware, bar & wine, coffee & tea, tools, and many more items. They are also currently constructing a state of the art test kitchen where they will be filming product demonstration videos among other things, with the goal of creating buzz in the marketplace for brands and products they are passionate about.  They seem like such a good company, and I for one am rooting for them! (Great prices, too! Yay!)

This Griddler Combo looks like it’d make a great addition to my kitchen repertoire… heehee! I love the idea of being able to grill indoors… some foods just aren’t the same if not grilled :)
