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.

    griddle great small cooks grill needed space Works clean cooking
    3 out of 3 found this review helpful

    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.

    The size is perfect for a small space, so far it's only used to cook breakfast eggs, cuts the cooking time in half, cooks fast & hadn't burnt any. I just have to figure out how to clean it better. I just been cleaning it by wiping it down with soap & water. Deliver was quick.

    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.

    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.

    from Chesnut Hill Foods Posted on

    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!

    We use this to toast buns and it performs. Nice and toasty in a matter of seconds. Great buy!

    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.

    Cooking up some delicious pancakes at Hime's Deli in Fairview Oklahoma. This 16" griddle is perfect for turning out a moderate amount of pancakes, four at a time with a row of frying sausage links in the back.

    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.
