Feeding a Farmer: My Griddle

I have always had a griddle.  I used to have a big rectangular griddle but didn’t like it because when I made pancakes, they wouldn’t cook evenly.  Right where the coil was on the underside of the griddle would heat hotter and away from the coil would be cooler.  That griddle died and my girls bought me a new griddle….same problem.

Then when I was at our thrift store, I saw a griddle that most people around here make lefse on.  I had wanted to learn to make lefse but hadn’t.  The griddle was $10 so I bought it and then it just sat and I didn’t learn to make lefse.  The griddle the girls bought me died and I decided that I wasn’t using the lefse griddle for lefse so why not use it to make pancakes.  WOW…what a difference!!

Now we use it for EVERYTHING!  I could honestly say that this griddle is used five times a week around here.  Seeing how dirty it is gives me proof of how much it it used!

Today I am working on making breakfast sandwiches (for lunch)- Ham, Egg and Cheese with a Bagel for the bread along with some fried potatoes.  I am prepped this far along so that when Hubby comes in, I can turn the griddle on and finish cooking.

I make hash browns, pancakes, grill cheese sandwiches, fried left over potatoes, french toast, hamburger, steaks and more with it.  It heats perfectly evenly and heats hotter than any appliance from the local stores.  I love it.  The is no hotter or cooler spot on the grill.  The heat is even.

In my high school days I worked at McDonalds.  I did everything there.  Back then we fried the burgers on a big industrial grill.  This reminds me so much of that grill only a smaller version.  It heats so hot!

If you have tried regular griddles and have been disappointed, like I was, this is the griddle to get.  I looked on Amazon and they have them listed as Bethany Housewares 730 Heritage Grill.  If I could choose my most used kitchen appliance besides Hubby’s coffee maker, I would easily say this is the most used appliance in my kitchen.  It really helps me feed a farm good food fast.

    I agree a rectangular griddle is never right, some parts too hot some too cool. My parents had a round giddle w a handle. the handle was moveable bc you could us the otherside of the griddle to cook meats and the grease would drain to the edges. I’ve never seen one like that since.
