Healthier Cooking:

With today's busy lifestyles, the Griddler offers the ability to create a delicious meal from fresh ingredients healthier because the Cuisinart GR-4N has a Integrated Drip Tray, draining grease away from the food.

Appearance and Features

On the outside the GR-4N Griddler has a stainless-steel body, giving it a nice look on the kitchen countertop. It is equipped with a wide handle and the cover is hinged to adjust to various thicknesses of the food being cooked.

The drip tray is located at one side of the base. The grease runs off the plates, through a spout and into the tray. Excess food that builds up during cooking can be scraped into the drip tray too. Easy to clean by hand and is dishwasher safe.

The base of the Griddler features dual temperature controls for temperatures from 200° - 425°, a function selector, and lights indicating which operation is being performed.

Inside are the nonstick cooking plates, removable and reversible to create the cooking surface needed.

  • A Grilling/Panini Side: perfect for grilling meats and vegetables
  • A Griddle Side: create perfect pancakes and traditional breakfast items. Also has the ability to sear.
  • These plates are easy to snap in or out, are dishwasher safe, and come with a limited three year warranty.

Also included is a scraping tool to clean the plates and gourmet recipes.


The Griddler is as easy to clean as it is to use. After unplugging and letting the unit cool down, use the scraping tool to remove any excess food from the cooking plate. Dispose of the grease. Remove the plate by pressing release on the unit. Now simply hand wash the drip tray and plates or put them in the dishwasher. On the outside of the Griddler GR-4N, use a non abrasive cloth to wipe clean including the control knobs.
