All-clad LTD vs Calphalon One

I need a double griddle. Anyone have an opinion about the differences or benefits of either one?

    If you're looking for a griddle, I'd go for a cast iron. Much cheaper, and no worrying about scratching a non-stick surface. I'm assuming the All-Clad & Calphalon are both non-stick? Lodge cast iron makes a wonderful grill pan that reverses to a griddle.

      I hate nonstick as a general rule, but think it's an excellent thing for a griddle on which you'll be making pancakes and possibly eggs and other stuff that might stick to cast iron.

      I have an All Clad stainless nonstick griddle and love it.

        Seasoned cast iron is non-stick.

        If you want a good double burner griddle, try the Le Creuset, its reversible too so you can grill on one side and griddle on the other. The All Clad and Calphalon don't have that option.

          If you have kids go for the inexpensive calphalon you might find of the net or ebay. I use them for a few years and the kids use them for eggs and stuff on weekends. 4-5 years they get a bit used from teenagers grabbing the wrong utensils and i either toss them or use for bacon only. I like the singles versus the big guy. You can probably get a single for $30-45 and you will feel a whole lot less stress when you come down on a sunday morning and see three teens not treating them so kindly.
