In the event that you are shopping on the web for a griddle you should be explicit in your question since griddles come in all sizes and shapes, and for a wide range of various employments. Just to make the statement – the best selling griddle on Amazon, the Calphalon 10 inch nonstick griddle, is really a crepe pan. The short, tenderly slanting sides part with it. It is as yet an extraordinary purchase as a nonstick griddle, particularly when it is discounted for around $20 for what it is worth at the hour of this composition.
Barbecue and Griddle
We should figure out the contrast between a barbecue and a griddle. A barbecue or barbecuing pan has a framework of raised edges that keep the food from preparing straightforwardly in the oil and drippings that collect in the lower part of the pan. In the event that the reach heat is pushed sufficiently high you can get a similar alluring barbecuing marks on steaks, slashes and burgers that you see when you cook on outside charcoal and gas barbecues.
A griddle appropriately has a smooth, level cooking surface, which makes it ideal for things like pancakes, omelets and crepes. A stove griddle, double griddle or double burner griddle (they all mean exactly the same thing) are frequently reversible, with a level griddle surface on one side and with barbecuing edges on the reversible side. These griddles are regularly publicized as a reversible griddle or as a barbecue/griddle.
A reversible griddle is probably going to be a 20 x 11 inch or so square shape with short handles on each end. These griddles are called double burner griddles since they are adequately large to cover and get warmed by two stove burners simultaneously. Coleman and Camp Chef make 24 inch and greater griddles which are somewhat huge for a cooktop griddle however are obviously appropriate for outside use.
Round and Square
A round griddle pan is in all likelihood a barbecue pan. A 10 inch or so smooth-base griddle with sides sufficiently high to keep oil and drippings from gushing out over onto the burner, and with an ordinary, long handle. The short sides are intended for simple spatula admittance to the food. You can see the value in that in the event that you have attempted to flip a pancake with a calculated spatula. Since warmth can be applied to just one side, round griddles are probably going to have non stick surfaces.
