Cuisinart GR-300WS Review: Best Electric Grill & Griddle Combo

When it was time to buy my next griddle, an electric grill and griddle combo was the only option I considered simply because it offers the best of both worlds.

The Cuisinart GR-300WS griddler Elite griddle is the best product out there on the market that integrates both a grill and a griddle, but that’s not all it does.

This griddle has six cooking options in total – top melt, Panini press, full grill, full griddle, contact grill, and half grill/half griddle. There is ample space for all of your cooking needs – each plate has a cooking surface of 240 square inches.

All of the griddle and grill plates in this product can be removed, and they are all nonstick and reversible plates. This means you’re going to have an easy time cleaning them after every cooking session.

It has an LCD display with blue LED indicator lights which makes using its features much easier. The display also gives you information regarding status, temperature, and more. With the display, you can take advantage of the 60-minutes countdown timer integrated into the griddle.

Another feature you can take advantage of with the display is the dual zone temperature control feature. This feature allows you to control the temperature of two different plates at the same time.

This allows you to prepare two different kinds of food that require different temperature settings at the same time. For example, you can grill bacon on one plate and griddle an egg on another plate. The Cuisinart GR-300WS electric griddle has a nice SearBlast feature that can heat or sear steaks at a temperature of 500˚F.

You’ll be happy to learn that Cuisinart includes a drip tray and cleaning and scraping tools in the package at no additional cost.

Cooking is always a smooth and hassle-free process with this griddle, thanks to its adjustable top cover, which has 6 presets for adjustments and can be locked when you don’t have any need for it and wish to store it for future use.

It’s made of brushed stainless steel, which highlights the griddle in any kitchen. You’ll no doubt like seeing and using this griddle in your kitchen.
