Convenience and Performance
I received a flat-top griddle that covers my entire stove as a Christmas gift from my husband. Our research indicated that a necessary accessory with one is to have a stand-alone electric burner so that you still have burners available while cooking on the griddle. I looked at several dozen in a wide range of prices. I decided to go with this one based on the price point and the aesthetic, knowing that there really aren’t a lot of bells and whistles needed for my purpose. Here are my notes from the first use: It’s attractive. The top is sleek and the ceramic eyes are smooth and clean easily. There aren’t a lot of nooks and crannies that would be difficult to clean. It is definitely one of the more attractive options I’ve looked at. It’s lightweight. At just over 6 pounds, I can easily maneuver it around and put it up and get it down from the top of the refrigerator which is it’s home when not in use (much easier than moving the 30 pound griddle on and off the stove) It’s sturdy. The feet are level and the manufacturing quality is solid. There is no wobble when it is placed on my counter. It heats quickly. Within a short time, the eye heat up to 600 degrees. It’s safe. Although it heats quickly and to a high temperature on the cooking surface, the rest of the unit keeps at a safe range so you won’t burn yourself when touching it. The feet keep the unit safely off my counter - and as can be seen from my photo, the space between the unit and countertop only got to about 100 degrees. I won’t have to worry about scorch or heat marks on any counter I use it on. The area around the front, sides, and back were hot, but not near hot enough to burn someone who may accidentally touch it. The controls stayed at a comfortable temperature and did not heat up. The entire unit cools within a reasonable time. Besides using along with my griddle, this will be handy to have for picnics, parties, and gatherings where a stove isn’t readily available, where I want to serve in another spot or room, or when more eyes are required. Overall, I’m really happy with this and look forward to using it often.
Perfect size for any kitchen
This kitchen island is perfect for my small kitchen. I really needed something that would provide me with not only a nice prep and beverage space, but also some extra storage. This kitchen island boasts two cabinets, one larger and one smaller, as well as two drawers. The shelves in the cabinets are easily adjustable to fit your needs. The cabinets open easy, but are also secure with a magnet closure. The drawers glide open like a dream, but have a stopper, as to not accidentally pull the entire drawer out. If you have kids, like I do, you know how important it is for those drawer stoppers to work. The island also features a knife block on the end. One of my favorite features of this island is that it has wheels to easily move it. This is so convenient for cleaning underneath and behind it. The handle, that is on the end, also helps you easily move the island, but also can be used as a kitchen towel or paper towel rack. Overall, this kitchen island is aesthetically pleasing. The materials used to make this are pretty sturdy. One thing I’d like to touch on is the directions and packaging. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought things elsewhere where the directions are terrible, and all the hardware is thrown into one bag. That is not the case at all with this! The directions were very clear and easy to follow, and all hardware was bagged separately and labeled. This made putting the island together so much quicker. If you are on the fence about this island, don’t hesitate! You won’t be able to find the same quality for the price. Plus, don’t forget you get fast and free shipping. Do yourself a favor and order; you won’t be sorry!
