Customer Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

Nice price! Excellent counter space saver! Works really well. I used one of these in a rental food truck and I was perty amazed by the heating

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.

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!
