Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler from Best Buy

Sometimes in life you hesitate and you lose out on something.  But sometimes, when you hesitate, it works out in your advantage.  Since our household has gotten smaller this year I have been thinking about getting an indoor grilling appliance.  I didn't follow through with it.  And then I got something way better than I would have picked out anyway.  I got the Cuisinart - Griddler Countertop Grill and Griddle - Brushed Stainless-Steel/Black and fell in love.
It took less than 10 minutes to read the book and get started.

Use the Griddler wide open for a large grilled surface....
Or closed for faster cooking times.

I tried it for the first time for burgers.

They cooked quickly and evenly.
And I was able to easily toss on some cheese and let the cheese melt nicely while still on the Griddler.

Served with some mac n cheese and cucumbers and I had a meal my kids literally went nuts over. 

After letting the Griddler cool, I had to clean up the mess made from creating our delicious burgers.  Here's what it looked like....
With just a quick scrape and wipe, it looked like this.  I soaked the plates, which clip on and off the Griddler easily, while I emptied and washed out the drip pan and it only took a few seconds to get them clean.

I really think the removable plates are what make the Griddler a must have appliance.  I often look at small kitchen appliances and think 'well that's kind of cool' but reality is I don't have room for...anything really, in my kitchen.  But I can use this for so much.  I can't wait to put this to use for grilled sandwiches, pancakes and as soon as I get the right plates...waffles.  Yes waffles!  An appliance that can make me delicious burgers AND waffles, that's my kind of machine!!!
