Key product features include:
· Variable temperature control probe with “SEAR” function to sear foods like steak.
· Embedded Heating Element for even cooking and better browning.
· Large 11”× 19” cooking surface large enough to prepare a meal for a family of four.
· A dishwasher-safe Removable Drip Tray that is both great for collecting grease drippings and cleans up easily.
· George Tough™ ceramic nonstick coating for oil-free cooking.
· Cool-Touch Handles for easy handling.
· 3-year limited warranty.
The really unique thing about this griddle is the specialized temperature control probe that not only features easy-to-use digital controls, but also an exclusive 2-minute sear setting for the Hot Zone™ cooking area.
With this one-touch control, you can heat part of the cooking surface to 525°F. This allows you to sear meats and vegetables at the same time that you cook the rest of your food on the regular griddle surface. It expands the realm of cooking possibilities you have available – letting you sear steak, chops, scallops and asparagus, just to name a few!
The other major innovation is the George Tough™ Ceramic Nonstick Coating that makes the cooking surface easier than ever to use and to clean. It lets you keep away from added fat in extra oils and butter, plus provides no-hassle cleanup with just a few simple wipes of a warm, soapy cloth.
I have never owned a griddle before. I think of it as a breakfast making tool - you know pancakes, bacon, eggs - and I am not a that kind of breakfast girl. Every once in awhile a big breakfast like that tastes good, but normally it's just too much. So I never really thought I needed a griddle and have never gotten one.
I am loving it and haven't made a single breakfast yet! The first thing I made were perfect grilled cheese to go with my tomato soup - yummo. The were perfectly melted, and toasted and quick. Then I did some really nice quesadillas for lunch - again, so yummy and perfectly melted with just the right amount of crisping on the outside. And then last night, I took all the veggies out of the fridge and did a stir fry as a way to clean out the fridge before I go shopping. It was sooo good & quick.
The thing I really appreciate about this griddle, is the temp control you have. The probe allows you to change the temp easily and it changes quickly - if you want it cooler - it goes cooler. Then the hot zone stays hotter for that finishing sear or crispness. I love it!
The Hot Zone™ Griddle is available at select retailers, nationwide, this week. It will become widely available next month.
