3" Splash Guards

The 3" splash guards on the sides and back of the griddle protect the user and surrounding walls from hot grease and oil splatters.

Adjustable Legs

The stainless steel legs that come with this griddle are adjustable from 3 1/2" to 5 1/2" to provide stability on any surface.

Removable Grease Tray

A channel along the front of the griddle plate collects grease and directs it into the removable grease tray. When it's time to clean up, the tray can be removed and emptied quickly.

Thermostatic Controls

For more precise temperature control, the thermostatic controls allow you to adjust the temperature of the griddle to suit the cooking requirements of different foods. And, when one product finishes cooking, you can move it to the outer edge of the griddle plate to keep it warm.

Customer Q&AAsk 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.

Only had this grill for a few days and already couldn't live without it. Just an incredible value for the money. I tested the temperature and found the thermostat to be dead on and calibrated to the center of the grill, and the 1/2" thick grill surface heats evenly all over. In fact, from the hottest point to the coolest point, I found less than 20 degrees F differential. I would definitely buy this grill again.

Nice adjustable feet and it was nice that the surface came protected in oil. After burning that off, I applied some sunflower oil and cranked it until it smoked. Handled another round, then it was on to cooking. Turned out bean and griddled cheese tacos to the crew.

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.

Herman H. from HJS SERVICES on 03/07/2016

Very easy to use. Just make sure you have the right electric outlets to support this kind of high usage. Easy to clean and stays hot.

Constantin B. on 04/20/2022

Bought a scratch and dent model years ago. Still going strong. It's seen some industrial use and some home use. Great for a small sandwich shop or diner, or for a home cook who wants an upgrade over a slab of cast iron slapped on top of their stove (just be careful of smoke if you live in a small apartment). Nice size grease trap for the size of the griddle! Sometimes takes a minute to get hot, as is usually the case with electric flat tops, but maintains temperature nicely.

Michael A. on 12/20/2021

I was excited to get this until I cut my fingers twice while opening this. The edges of the splash guards are RAZOR SHARP. My employee also cut her finger trying to pull the plastic off. Avantco needs to spend a little more time getting these things SAFE for use. Anyone trying to prepare food on these will find their fingers cut up if they hit the edges. I had to get a sander and sand down the edges before putting in my kitchen. Great looking unit. Horrible QA.

We upgraded to this form a panini press and should have made the upgrade a long time ago! Work great and meets all our expectations! 10 out of 10!!

Emily S. from Buck N Brew Coffee on 03/02/2021

We only use on weekends for breakfast but for the most part this heats up quick and hasnt let us down yet so I would reccommend

Jack H. from Jacks Steakhouse on 02/13/2021

I was really skeptical when I first ordered this product, it just seemed the price was too great. I have to tell you this is a great heavy duty grill. I run it about 10 hours a day and have never had any problems. The grill is easy to clean and makes anything from eggs to hamburgers. Also easy to keep clean and you will love the way it keeps the temperature constant. Great!!

Karla N. from Biscuit Barn on 01/25/2021

I ordered this to have as a backup and for light duty use as I normally use our larger gas griddle for everyday use. This one is perfect to have on hand for slower times and smaller batch cooking. Works great for quesadillas and toast - things that don't produce a lot of grease. Once we open back up for normal business I will definitely be using this more often.

Amy C. from Cottage Cafe on 04/25/2020

Don’t get turned offf by the cheap price and 120 volt power..this little bad boy works like a charm. Heats up and stays hot for whatever you need. Recovery time is fast..

Obi L. on 03/21/2020

Really like this flat top! It' has been awesome to use! Great for burgers , bacon and pancakes! I use it nearly everyday. Has a good size grease trap and is pretty easy to clean!

Terry H. from Terry Hayworth on 03/12/2020

Awesome little griddle. Bought this as a backup to our gas griddle and after trying it decided to put it into service to grill buns and plant based burgers so there is no cross-contamination. A great price for a quality product. We have several Avantco products and trust them all daily. Great manufacturer.

Thomas M. on 02/18/2020

We bought this electric griddle time ago. We use it all day long, 365 days per year, always switched on. It is really an amazing product!

Elio from F& F HEALTHY FOODS LLC on 01/20/2020

Such a great piece of equipment. I was worried about the temperature not getting hot enough due to having to buy electric as opposed to propane, this unit delivers an accurate temp and an even cooking surface. Easy cleaning and sturdy build. We may be going for the next size up!!!

Suzanne from SDSC Home on 01/05/2020

This griddle makes food delicious. It cleans easily which is a plus in kitchen. The heat goes up the way we liked but it takes a bit of time.

Cold S. on 12/20/2019

Great counter top grills. Perfect for eggs, french toast and other quick heat items for my small cafe. Would recommended highly if you have limited space.

Tiffany B. from Tiffany's Bagel And Deli Cafe LLC on 12/09/2019

Wow! Do not be fooled by the low price of this grill, it is amazing and very heavy duty. It takes a while to heat up, but it stays hot once it’s ready. Perfect for burgers or making breakfast. Buy this!

Andrew Z. on 10/04/2019

L O V E I T ! ! ! We make a lot of tacos. We is about the purchase the 36 inch. THE BEST!!!!

Edward C. from Juniors Cocktail Lounge on 09/30/2019

We added the grill to our existing hot dog stand. I love my grill, it's not quite restaurant size, but it's great and affordable. Looks professional, so no complaints here! Philip baker
