There are few duets better sung than bacon and pancakes. The sweet sound of bacon crackling combined with the lifting sensation brought about by the seductive smell of chocolate pancakes is to this day the most magical experience you will ever encounter.
If you don’t love breakfast food, than frankly I just don’t understand you. As the great Ron Swanson asked: “Why does anybody in the world ever eat anything but breakfast food?”
You can use your frying pan if you want. Bacon, eggs, and pancakes made by an old pan are better than no breakfast food at all, but if you’re ready to take your game to the next level it’s best that you invest in an electric griddle. This way, you can bring breakfast food with you wherever you are.
Now a griddle should last you a good bit of time, so it’s important you that you make a wise consumer decision when you purchase one. Think about it; this griddle will be the one thing you trust with your breakfast food other than yourself and your favorite diner.
There are tons of these griddles out there. You may not be sure which one is perfect for you. Maybe you want one that’s small. Maybe you want one with a grill. Whatever it is you're looking for, I’m here to help you. I’m here because of our mutual love for breakfast food.
I’m here because I feel it is my civic duty to help each and every one of find the perfect griddle for your life.
Today, we will be talking about the Presto 07061 22-inch Electric Griddle With Removable Handles.
The Presto is a very simple design. It has everything you need in an electric griddle. It is very clean and fine. There’s not much extra added fanciness to suck you in.
Let’s review it’s features:
Instead of adding extra features, the Presto offers the essentials in a high quality fashion.
The Presto is quite well received by the public. With over 1,000 reviews the Presto has a 4.6 star rating on Amazon at the time of this review.
For it’s low price compared to other griddles, the Presto is a great bargain. It’s normally around 50 dollars but you can find it for around 30 on amazon.
It has a 22 inch surface which is larger than most griddles as well. You can fit about 8 regular sized pancakes if you covered the griddle. This size is awesome, and it makes keeping your bacon and eggs separate even easier.
Even though it is non-stick, it is best to still use just a little bit of oil or butter. The non-stick surface looks a little odd at first. It has a tough knit diamond pattern that will show itself on your pancakes and eggs, but it has not made any difference on the taste or quality of the food.
It’s simple, easy to use, easier to clean, and doesn’t have anything too confusing about it.
That being said, there is some things to look out for. For starters, I noticed that the heat is strongest nearest the heat control. Awareness of this makes it easy to maneuver around, but awareness is necessary.
The base is supposedly warp-proof, but some people have noticed the griddle slowly caving in over extended use. I didn’t have this problem and I used it for about three weeks straight, so if it were to happen it would be down the road.
The only other problem is that some people seem to be burning their hands touching the side of the griddle. Obviously, it is important to not touch the sides of the griddle. As long as you only touch the handles while the griddle is hot, you will be fine. Don’t make the mistake of touching a hot griddle, you’ll surely regret it.
All in all, the large size and non-stick surface make the grill ideal for people who are cooking large portions of breakfast food.
You can find the Presto in retail stores such as target and best buy, but it is cheapest online. The standard price is about half a hundred dollars, but on Amazon the Presto will only cost you around 30 dollars.
Customer service has only received positive reviews through Amazon. While you’re at it on Amazon get yourself a nice pancake spatula or pancake rings. You’re saving money when you buy the Presto instead of another grill, so you may as well reinvest that money towards better pancakes.
Pancake, bacon, eggs, french toast, and grilled cheese. The world’s greatest foods can all be cooked to excellence on a griddle. Having an electric griddle just makes life a million times easier.
The ability to perfectly self regulate the temperature is amazing. Just so you know, pancakes cook best at 350 degrees.
It doesn’t have a bunch of extra features, but if you want to cook enough breakfast food for an entire family (whether you are eating it by yourself or with others), the Presto is the griddle for you.
Just make sure you watch out of for the heat spot near the heat control and that you avoid burning yourself on the edges of the griddle.
