I love my grill and griddle. It works great and it is a quick and easy way to cook and cleaning it is easy too.
I tried other (only one sided grill) for the same price. One side is for grilling meat and the other side for things like pancakes, eggs,bacon e. I always use a brush and coat the grill with oil. The grill heats up evenly and you can put a lot of meat on it. Never put the grill part in the dishwasher. Wash it by hand which is easy to do. I love this grill and hope i get many years out of it.
Does the job i purchased it for. Here are the specifications for the Nesco RG-1400 Reversible Grill/Griddle:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Reversible non-stick grill/griddle
- Embedded heating element
- Stay-cool handles
- Power indicator
- Heavy duty base/drip tray
It is good product, everything is good but it doesn’t have cover.
This reversible grill/griddle is cute and useful, but has its drawbacks. First of all, the surface area is pretty limited. We are a couple, so we’re not usually cooking all that much at once, but if you want to use this for anything more than a couple of people you’re going to be hard pressed to do so with this one. I also wish the controls were more precise. Those aren’t exactly terms that give me much information. Is ‘high’ too high for cooking a chicken breast?. Will ‘low’ enough to keep things warm at a dinner party?the smaller size does mean it takes up a bit less counter space and stores more easily, though. And the built-in drip pan removes excess fat and keeps things from steaming in released juices rather than browning or sauteeing. Just make sure that it looks like it will do what you’re asking it to do when you order it.
Reviews from purchasers :
- My second Nesco product – totally satisfied.
- It is so easy to clean
- Five Stars
Holds heat fairly well, reheating somewhat quickly when food item put on either side. Non-stick coating worked fine for me. Cleans up easily in hot soapy water. Grease catcher has as much surface area as grill/griddle and is pretty deep. I didn’t have a problem with overflow.
Gift for my son who loves to cook.
It meet all expictaiins, i even forgot i have a stove. And great service from the buyer.
I use this griddle everyday to cook breakfast. If it were to wear out i would buy a new one as soon as possible. It is so easy to clean, doesn’t stick, and just the right size for two people. The grease catcher is big and easy to clean, no little pans that run over when cooking bacon.
The nesco rg-1400 reversible grill/griddle has three pieces – a plastic cradle that also doubles as a rather huge drip pan, the grill/griddle itself and the power cord. I’ve been cooking with it for a couple of weeks now. First, the grill is on the small side. It will hold 6 strips of bacon or 4 pancakes 4-5 inches in diameter, great for a couple but not so much if you’re feeding children. The heating control is on the power cord, as is usual with electric grills/griddles. Unlike most, this one does not give actual temperatures but only a range – warm, low, medium and high. I don’t know, but i had to cook bacon on it. (on other grills i cook bacon on about 300f.
The heating control is not always easy to control. Heat goes up and down to much.
Received this yesterday (22aug13). Used it last night for steaks. 1 big, thick usda prime ribeye (from costco) for me, and a much thinner one for my wife. First toasted the bread for garlic toast to put under the steaks. Ran the temp up to max, and the bread toasted perfectly. The heat is great (much better than my old grill) and the steak cooked fast on the outside and stayed raw in the center as i like it. About 4min, flip then 4min, flip then 4min, rotate then 4min. Added my wife’s for the last 4min, but it took a bit longer than i anticipated. Even though it was much thinner, the heat is enough to cook the outside and leave the inside alone.
Once again, another ‘healthy’ cooking alternative. On the plus side, a pretty good size cooking area, and nice to be able to flip over from smooth to grill. The unit heats up pretty quickly but do not rely on the accuracy of the thermostat temperature wheel, it goes from really hot to almost off when food is getting too hot and you turn it down. Also, despite what you read, you will need a pam spray or something, to use the smooth side especially. Now my favorite moan:-from the manual: – ‘wash with warm soapy water’you can’t submerge this thing ever, so good luck getting all those steak juice stains off, it also won’t go in the dishwasher. I had a nice unit over 5 years ago with removable and fully washable plates on a foreman style grill, and this is progress?more of a toy i suspect than getting used daily. Not very expensive, and easy to see why. Probably do well in a college dorm – 3 stars is generous.
Best decision and works good. Very happy with the grill/ griddle.
I read a lot of the marginal reviews before buying and was a little skeptical but jumped in anyway. I now use this almost exclusively when cooking. I haven’t my pots and pans for some time. In fact, it is parked on top of my glass top stove. I would say that it is probably ideal for a couple and not designed to be an indoor replacement grill to cook up a feast for a party. I have cooked ahead 6 large burgers with veggies all around the sides to the edges on the grill side. I flip the burgers and move everything around and i do not notice uneven cooking. I’ve cooked 4 eggs and 2 small pancakes and bacon at the same time on the flat side. I start with the bacon, as it shrinks i move it to the side and put the pancakes down and then the eggs.
It was just as it was described.
