I was so excited about the versitility of this product that I gave 3 of them for Christmas gifts. My sister, in return, surprised me with the Griddler. I didn't NEED to add another space-taking appliance to my limited storage space but this enabled me to get rid of my George Foreman, large electric pancake griddle, the Panini grill. I like being able to cook bacon on one side, and pancakes on the other. This is so convenient for travel when staying in vacation condos!! The compactness is awesome as is the ease of use. I especially like the removable trays that are dishwasher safe. Recommed this as a MUST to all. Now I want Cuisinart to add removeable waffle trays to complete this unit!!
