Cuisinart Griddler vs. DeLonghi Indoor Grill?

  • a

I'm looking to purchase an indoor grill, and have heard great things about both the Cuisinart Griddler (which does quite a bit more than grill) and the DeLonghi Indoor Grill. Anyone have any thoughts on which is better? While I certainly appreciate the Griddler's versatility, the main criteria for me is quality of the grilling.

  1. Did you ever get info on this exact subject? We have a griddler and wondered if also getting the Delonghi would be redundant.
    Thanks !

    1. The CG is not a grill so if that's what you want, go DeLonghi. Just remember that it will be a one-use appliance and the non-stick grill surface probably means it doesn't reach true grill searing heat temps.

      The grill plates on the CG are good to keep items from basically boiling in their juices, but so is the fact that the CG has a slight tilt that has everything draining off anyway.
