Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How do I prepare my grill for first-time use?
In order to protect the plates of your new grill during transportation, a layer of food-safe oil was coated on the surface and covered with a sheet of wax paper prior to shipment. This is harmless, but must be removed before you begin to use. To remove, peel off the protective wax paper, and then preheat the grill until the oil liquifies. Next, carefully wipe away the melted oil with a clean, soft cloth. Once all of the oil is removed you can begin to use your grill.

    The Avantco EG16N 16" Electric Countertop Griddle is great, this has been ordered in the past but this is the first review that has been done we will be ordering more for the sandwich shop.
    This grill is awesome! It can fit nine four inch patties and cook them in about six minutes. Highly recommend this product. I have had no problems. I own two of them and use one for them toasting hamburger buns. Highly recommended for concession stands or food trucks. Half the price of other brands. I cook about 75 to 150 burgers a day on mine. Only bad thing is it drops in temp and can take a bit to recover but if you plan ahead you can get around that.
    This griddle heats up quick and holds heat well. The deep size makes it easy to cook multiple eggs, pancakes, bacon, or whatever you want quickly.
    We have a tiny kitchen and this flat top has been a saving grace. Fitting next to our induction burner it has a relatively small foot print. Runs 8 hours a day 7 days a week with no problems.
    That's already our second Avantco and we have one more to buy, as of today we have never experienced any huge issues. Definitely worth buying!
    An Excellent Grill in Performance! Price was Competitive. Very HAPPY. THANKS YOU KINDLY! I Will refer my Friends when they stop by, to Your Company if Interested.
    Small enough for mobile use and markets, electric means you can use it indoors. Thick base makes it have even heat, side splatter guards are a plus.
    This is a very nice little griddle. We use it specifically to toast hotdog buns, but we did cook on it to season it in when we first got it, and it works well for that even being electric versus gas.
    I love having my own flat top at home! I use it for seafood to get the perfect crust on scallops. I bought it to make burgers and I can easily cook 8 at a time.
    Overall quite happy with this addition to our cafe. Slow to heat up and a little uneven heat distribution but once it gets going it gets the job done
    This makes our toasted treats. Really convenient and doesn't take up a lot of space. A must buy for any store that is cramped for space
    My cafe is adorably tiny but we use 2 of these as our main cooking source and lets just say they get the job done. Fast heating, even cooking what more could you ask for? They come pre-oiled so be careful taking them out the packing boxes and be sure to do a thorough wipe down and heating before first use.

    This grill have been a plus to my food truck. It works like a charm daily. I have no issues with this equipment at all. Almost 2 years and I have no regrets.
    We find the griddle to be very reliable. We own only one but have found no problems using it off-site. A dependable griddle at a very good price. Avantco makes a number of good reliable products at a worthwhile cost.

    Great grill, expecially for a business or food truck with limited space. Gets hot quick and maintains heat all day, cooks food evenly would definitely recommend.
    Very thick stainless construction, love the indicator lights to let you know that is on and that is it heating, the heating light goes off once desired temp is reached. Unit is great for food trucks especially for those who can't afford exhaust hoods, most states allow electric griddles without need for a hood, which in our build was the case. Great value.
    I run a small print shop and need a kitchen on site for those late nights and lunch breaks. This grill is perfect. It has a small footprint, but gives you the functionality of a much bigger unit. I looked at several other 110v grills, but this was the only choice. It has a great entry price point, offers a seriously sturdy top and does all you need. Cleanup is very easy. For those of you who don't know, the best way I have found to clean up is to leave the grill hot, and pour a small amount of water on it, then scrape clean. BE CAREFUL! Water + Hot Grill = Steam! Don't worry about the staining of the metal top. This is normal. You do not need it to be shiney in order for it to be clean. My unit came in with a small dent abouve the catch tray, but that does not bother me so much. When I plugged it in for the first time, there was smoke coming from under the top. I think that is normal, as it is shipped with a coating of oil on the top. Some of it must have gotten on the heating element. Go ahead and get this grill. You won't be disappointed! Great Unit!

    Works great for cook top. Might be buying a bigger one for doing other stuff around. I would recommend to someone to purchase this item
    SUPER impressed with this unit. I was expecting much less quality than our Waring griddle, but not the case. This griddle seems every bit as well built and has much nicer, more durable legs that are adjustable and higher than the Waring. As long as it hold up over time, this is a real winner.
    Great product that makes the task of preparing fast food easier! We use it in our business daily. Thanks for a great product that delivers!
    Great griddle for a great price! Was very happy with this purchase only to find out we really do not have the room for it. Did not return because to restocking fee which I honestly do not like! Sold on my own just to avoid the restocking fee.
    We needed something small and simple just for one purpose and that is to toast hot dog buns. This performs and it gets hot! The dial goes up to 570 but at around 425 it toasts buns in seconds. Compared to other brands this unit is very inexpensive. Only had it for a few days but so far so good!
    The counter top griddle is so easy to clean. It takes only a little time to find where it gets hotter and less hot but I'm glad for the purchase. Fast delivery and nothing was damaged which is great.
    This griddle was exactly what we needed. This small griddle has greatly increased the productivity of our small kitchen. Anyone that is looking for an entry level price range griddle can't go wrong with this model, seems to me to perform very well for the price. The fact that this plugs into any household electrical outlet was a plus for me since we are limited in our power options.
    Griddle meets my expectations says standard duty but for me it is heavy duty got me out of trouble heated bread links and onions all at the same time the best thanks web.
    Very good product, easy to handle and use for anyone, good instructions. Good for small restaurants or small kitchens. Great quality and easy to use
    Great electric grill money can buy, we love to using it. Small things do come in great packages. So if you are thinking of buy one don't hesitate .
    I've had my griddle for a few weeks and I love the way it cooks all of my foods. I don't know what I'll do without this item.
    So far I really like this flat top I got the 16 inch one because I really needed a lot of space I don't have a lot of space and I needed it it works fantastic I turned it on and it heated up it shut off when it was supposed to I really like that feature
    If you have a small work space to work with, this is a perfect size. Cuts cooking time in half, haven't burnt anything yet. Manual states do not use any chemicals or scrub pads to clean the cooking surface, so I been just wiping down with water and soap. Which still leaves some dark spots from cooking, still trying to figure out what to do to clean it better. Had it over a week and been using it everyday, overall I like the product so far.
    We have an older version of this griddle the 177EG16 120 - and it has been a real workhorse. We cook a wide range of foods on it and it does a great job. With the small space we have it is the perfect griddle. It heats fast and cooks evenly. Not sure what we would do without it.
    It's a great counter top on grill. It keeps the temperature well and it's able to run all day! We were making potato pancakes, shnitzels and more on this grill. And the price is great too.
    The Avantco Electric Countertop Griddle is great. I'm not sure what our kitchen would do without this little griddle. Works amazing if you keep it cleaned well.

    The griddle is a great investment. the only issue that I had was that the plastic wrapping was stuck to the griddle and I accidentally dropped the catch tray and the outer lid broke off. but the performance of the griddle exceeded my expectation.
    This little grill will do the job if, you have a small low volume business. It is not made for a high traffic or a busy kitchen. But overall it is OK and do recommend it.
    works very good heats up quickly cooks quickly and has grate power use not a lot and works good i recommend to anyone who has a small place
