Check Out The Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler

Updated on November 12, 2013

The Cuisinart Name

Cuisinart has been a trusted name for over 25 years.

It all started with the Cuisinart Food Processor in 1971, and is now a leader in small kitchen appliances. Julia Child and James Beard have endorsed the products as a means of preparing quick, healthy foods.

Customer care, and high-quality products keep Cuisinart a forerunner in the cooking industry. Twenty-five product lines from microwaves to electric knives to outdoor grilling; you will find most anything you need to process fine meals for your family and friends.

Many customers who buy kitchen appliances from Cuisinart return again, and again for their cooking needs due to the consistant quaility and craftsmanship of the Cuisinart name.

Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler

The Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler is compact in size, but has a lot of great features.  It looks sleek and stylish on your counter with it's brushed stainless-steel exterior. 

Five appliances in one!  That is the beauty of the Cuisinart Griddler; and it performs every one of the five functions so well that you will be able to clean out your cupboards of a couple unnecessary appliances. 

What you can use the Griddler for:

  • Contact Grill - Perfect for cooking meats and vegetables in a short amount of time.  When grilling, the hinged lid closes gently over the food, adjusting to it's thickness.  A drain spout keeps the drippings away from the meat, allowing for a healthier meal.
  • Panini Press - So great for grilling sandwiches, quesadillas, and a host of other great foods.  The unique handle and "floating" lid press the sandwich lightly, and heats it evenly.  When using the grill plate, you will end up with the traditional panini grill marks.
  • Full Grill - Open the Griddler to it's full size and utilize all the surface area for burgers, steaks, fish, and vegetables. 
  • Full Griddle - Prepare a full meal of bacon, eggs and toasted bread, or look through the recipe book that's provided for a new meal idea. 
  • Half Grill/Half Griddle - Use one side of the Griddler with the grill plate, and the other half with the griddle plate.  You can cook any type of food you like and still have them turn out perfectly with one appliance.



My Opinion

I really like the versatility of this griddle!

From all the various configurations, to the thought they put into making it easier to clean than many other similar products. I also love having enough surface area to make a whole meal on one appliance for my husband, and myself.

One downside, is that it may not be large enough to cook the whole meal for a larger family, but I imagine they are used to this issue, and cook accordingly.

This is also compact enough to take in the travel trailer, so you can enjoy a really superb, hot meal on chilly camping mornings.

Overall, I feel that with the great reviews, and the trusted Cuisinart name, this is the perfect choice for a versatile home griddle.
