Here's A Video I Made For You Showing A Happy Day Griddle I Bought And Then Sold
Happy Day Griddle Grill
I come across a lot of strange things in my travels, but one which really seemed odd was the Happy Day Griddle Grill. This strange titled gem from the 1950's is an iconic piece of cookware which retains a cult like following. Many believe that it is still the best when it comes to making a grilled cheese or perhaps cooking some bacon and eggs in the morning. Few can argue that it sure is an awesome display piece if nothing else. After all, who doesn't want to have a happy day? This griddle practically begs you to just looking at it.
This rough shaped pan is made of thick cast aluminum with a firm plastic handle. I picked mine up for real cheap at a thrift shop, but that was a lucky find for sure. At first I wasn't sure what to make of it, but upon checking completed listings on Ebay, I confirmed that it was a wise investment for $3. Having no special attraction to it in particular, I ended up selling mine on Ebay for about $35.
Ebay is certainly the place to look for them. You can find the original WM. B. Watkins Co. of Evanston, IL.which is the most desired. You can also find the later version created by Perma-Cast Corp. of Racine WI. Honestly, there isn't much difference, and unless you are a collector I wouldn't worry about it! For purists however, you should be able to find them ranging from $15 in poor condition, to $150 for new ones.
