Although this is not a new product on the market it has shown that a good product stands the test of time. The old saying goes, "If it is not broken don't fix it". The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler has taken indoor grilling to a new level. Some may say it's the Cadillac of the portable grill world due to its functionality and versatility. As the title states, this product is actually five appliances in one. A hinged, floating cover and one set of removable and reversible cooking plates turn the Cuisinart Griddler into a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle, or half grill/half griddle. Dual temperature controls, dishwasher safe plates, integrated drip tray and a cleaning/scraping tool make cleanup quick and simple.

Panini sandwiches, who doesn't love them! Before we started using the term 'Panini', we just called them grilled sandwiches. Panini sounds so much nicer and cafes love to use the term Panini on their menu. I recently went to a restaurant that specializes in Panini sandwiches. It's hard to believe I paid almost $10 bucks for something I could have made at home for $2.00. And of course my $10 bucks did not include tax and tip ($13.00 total). By the way, I waited 25 minutes for food that I could have made in 10 minutes total taking my sweet time. The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler has a hinged cover that 'floats' so that you can actually cook the Panini sandwich evenly. Some grills on the market when closed down onto the sandwich will pinch the one side of the sandwich. Since the sandwich was pinched while cooking it is cooked unevenly, it looks uneven, and the food is forced out the other side of the bread. Imagine serving guest these sandwiches. Serving Panini sandwiches to guest with this grill is simple and fun, but best of all, the presentation is awesome. Your guest will want one for themselves.

Another good use of the floating grill top is cooking thick meats. Cooking thick meats is quite a challenge for many other similar grill brands. The floating top will set, and press down, on top of the meat so it is cooked evenly and the grill marks will be even. The floating top will adjust to just about any size meat that you cook on a daily basis. Some reviewers mentioned that when using the griddler as a contact grill, that some of the meat would not cook evenly. In most cases the problem could be solved by cooking meats with similar thickness. If one cut of beef is a lot thicker than the other cut of beef the grill will not be able to make equal contact with both cuts of meat and at that point cooking times will vary. For best results, try cutting meat as close to same thickness as possible and meats should come out perfectly. Another complaint heard by a few reviewers is that the fat from beef does not drain that well. With some contact grills the cooking area is on a slight angle so the fat drippings can drip into the drippings tray. The Cuisinart Griddler is level so the fat does not drip off as fast. If the main purpose for your contact grill is for the fat to drip off then the Griddler may not be the right choice for you. But if you are not always using the grill as a "contact grill" then you can benefit from all the other functions of the Griddler and still prepare healthy food.

Now let's talk about breakfast, my favorite time of the day! Nothing beats steak, eggs and pancakes. I don't cook it very often for obvious reasons, but the main reason is the amount of work involved to prepare and the clean up after. The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler makes it a snap! The cooking plates are removable and, best of all, they are reversible, plus the grill can fold down to lay flat. When I cook a large breakfast I lay the grill down flat, reverse one of the plates, cook steak on the grill side, and eggs and pancakes on the griddle side. Talk about ease! You can cook both at the same time without contamination worries and the temperature gauge can be set differently on each side. It has separate temperature controls…very cool! I almost forgot, you can swap out both plates and use the optional Cuisinart Griddler Waffle Plates, which allows you to make 4 Belgium waffles at one time.

My daughters have food allergies and one thing their body cannot tolerate is seafood. Which makes the Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler an ideal cooking griddle. We lay the grill down flat, use the grill plates on both sides, cook chicken on one side and any type of seafood on the other. Problem solved no contamination and best of all no emergency room visits.

For me, it boils down to a few things. If something is easy to use I will use it. If something is easy to clean I will use it. The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler meets both criteria. The plates are removable for easy clean-up and are dishwasher safe. Gone are the days of worrying about how to clean the older style grills. No worries about submerging the entire unit into soapy water while cleaning it. In the old days, I would cook everything the old fashioned way with 2 or 3 frying pans. Now I bring out the Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in1 Griddler and breeze through the cooking process. The unit is light but sturdy and it does not feel cheap.
