Anyone have the Cuisinart Griddler?

Just wondering if this is any better than the old George Forman. I'm enticed by the dishwasher safe parts as I can't stand cleaning the George Forman grill! Will I use this or will it gather dust? All comments welcome. Thanks!

    I have it and totally love it! The husband loves it too. We cook at least 4 full meals a week on it. Grilled chicken, fish, veggies, pancakes, eggs, bacon; the griddler does it all, amazingly and with such easy clean up! I HIGHLY recomment this appliance!

      Go for it! It does everything George does and more... we use it when grilling outside is not feasable, it's great for panini and breakfast, and chicken breasts (any boneless meat)... plus the plates come right off and you can stick them in the diswasher. Highly recommended!

        I 've had one for 2 years - it is still in great shape and we use it several nights a week. Great for panini, quesadillas, etc - I also use it alot for grilled fish, burgers etc in the winter when I'm not going outside to grill. We use the griddle mainly for pancakes on weekends. it's a great appliance and it looks nice too!

          We have had The Griddler for almost two years and still love it. One of the best investments made. In terms of usage, probably 90% is for paninis, although it is great for most anything that needs to be grilled.

          I had seen them for $99.99 at Linens n Things. Even less at Sams and Costco but make sure they are the same Griddler you see in the W-S ad.....I think at times those big box stores have a slightly scaled down version.

            Another thumbs up here. I've had mine for a few years and, since I live in an apartment with no outdoor space for grilling, use it all the time.

              I love mine! It's amazingly easy to use and easy to clean. I wanted the Griddler over a regular panini press because of its versatility. It's definitely not a "uni-tasker".
