How to Choose an Electric Griddle
There are alternative cookware that can food quickly and efficiently, so you don’t need to use an oven for cooking where you get dozens of pans dirty and making your kitchen in a complete mess.
What you can use as an alternative to using your oven is an electric skillet or an electric griddle. These two types of cookware uses a hot surface and so they basically cook the same types of dishes. Their basic difference is that one is a flat plan and the other is a flat plate and so there are foods better suited to one and the other.
The electric skillet is shaped like a frying pan but it is different in a way that you do not put it on a stove like you do a frying pan because it has its own electrical apparatus that makes it heat up on its own. On the other hand, the electric griddle is a large surface which is not confined by walls.
A Simple Plan: Griddles
Both come with nonstick surfaces. Although both are non stick, the electric skillet has an easy-to-clean nonstick surface like porcelain while the metal-like electric griddle has a non stick surface that is durable and it resistant to scratch.
A Beginners Guide To Tools
The advantage of a griddle over a skillet is that it is perfect for preparing pancakes, scrambled eggs, French toast and dozens of other breakfast foods. The flat, wall-less surface makes flipping and cooking breakfast foods easy to accomplish, plus the fact that the large area makes preparing enough for the whole family or cook them simultaneously. You can even use it as a hot warming plate by conveniently placing a tray with a dish on top to keep that dish warm.
If your electric griddle and can evenly heat up and maintain its heat all over the surface then this means that you electric griddle is of good quality. A good quality electric griddle will have your pancakes of the same color and not one light and one dark, and this is true with other types of food like bacon and bread.
To test this, you can check if the temperature that you have set it is consistent with the temperature reading on the plate. Then check he other parts of the griddle if it has a similar temperature.
When you are hunting for an electric griddle, consider its size, and choose a large one that gives you plenty of space. Just make sure to find a drainage hole at the corner of the plate so that you can easily ditch those extra grease (from your bacon) out and away from that large surface.
