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.
    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.
    Thank you for your review, Erik! We are sorry this Avantco EG16N 16 inch Electric Countertop Griddle - 120V, 1750W has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    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!!
    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
    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!!
    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.
    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.
    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..
    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!
    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.
    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!
    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!!!
    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.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    L O V E I T ! ! ! We make a lot of tacos. We is about the purchase the 36 inch. THE BEST!!!!
    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
    Sturdy little griddle great for the small space in our food trailer. Grease trap is a good size. Heats up quickly. We did find that this griddle needs to be plugged in on a circuit by itself. It would not blow the breaker but the griddle would not get enough power to heat up properly.
    This grill is perfect for food trucks and outdoor events. I heats up fast and takes at least 20 minutes to cool. Easy washing afterwards. Very easy to control temp. settings. All around great buy.
