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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I just received this and have only used it a couple of times but it seems top notch. My only concern if you are using this for in home use is that it sits so tall. If you are planning to set this on a counter top be aware that it is so tall that it will leave very little room under your cabinets. I’m not sure how I will resolve this as I’m sure over time it will damage the cabinets via the heat or the grease splatter.

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.

Katherine Alwardt from The Pump
Posted on 8/14/2016 12:00:00 AM

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!

Doan Nguyen from

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.

Karen Bennett from
Posted on 7/24/2019 12:00:00 AM

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.

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.

Lloyd Morris from Double Canyon Vineyards

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.

Great little work horse of a griddle. Be careful not to throw the legs out with the packaging as they are very hard to find in the box (surprisingly.)

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.

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.

Sharon Turner from Pashays

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.

Very durable little unit. We just use for toasting bread so never have a problem with heat retention. Very easy to use and clean. Keep in mind it is not NSF, which reflects in the price.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jeff Pappenheimer from

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

Posted on 12/27/2016 12:00:00 AM

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 Spoon Coffee from
Posted on 12/20/2019 12:00:00 AM

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.

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!

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.

Shaun Morrison from

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!

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.

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.

John Chowanski from

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!!!

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!!

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!

Posted on 1/20/2020 12:00:00 AM

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.
