The Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle is an electric griddle that’s good for about one or two people. Compared to other Presto griddles, the design and size of this model make it the compact version of its other larger siblings. Most Presto griddles are more known for their large cooking surface which puts them at a disadvantage for people who don’t have a lot of kitchen countertop space to spare.
The entire unit is submersible in water once the heat control has been removed, and can also be put in the dishwasher. This makes the Presto 07211 a unique electrical griddle because it fits just about anywhere: the sink, your cabinet, and even in the dishwasher. Basically, it makes everything easier because of its small size.
Heating is even for most parts of the surface, with slightly hotter areas in some. This is still impressive for a countertop griddle this affordable, and we think it can even go head to head with more expensive models in the market. This is especially true when compared to the larger units which naturally take longer to heat up the food.
Moreover, the Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle is also easier to clean because of its nonstick surface and channel that’s built to catch any extra grease. You’ll enjoy using this with lots of different types of food and won’t be limited to just pancakes, burgers, or eggs. The result is tasty food that’s properly cooked and heated, including perfectly browned pancakes that a lot of people are always looking to achieve.
Since we mentioned how impressively it heats up, just how good is it for other food types? And can it really be compared to other top griddles in the market this year?
It’s not that hard to believe when you consider how small this machine us. We think it’s the size itself that’s responsible for its performance, since there’s not a lot of room to cover when the system is heating up. It’s able to maintain high heat temperatures at much longer periods, which is very important when you’re thinking of preparing foods such as pancakes. The result of your delectable flapjacks will rely on the consistent heating of your electric skillet, so if you don’t want half of your pancake batch to end up burnt while the other stays under-cooked, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of trouble and heartache with this machine.
The only drawback that’s probably obvious with the Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle would also be its size. You can’t cook for a lot of people, unless you’re okay with constantly putting in and removing pancakes so you get a bigger batch to feed to your family. But for people who are ideally looking for something small and compact, then this is the right unit for you.
