Cuisinart gr-150 customer reviews
“I have had my griddler for about thee weeks now and it has been a great purchase . I have used it every day for lunch and dinner to grill paninies, Fresh veggies, hamburgers , chicken, fresh and frozen, fish, pizzas and fruits. I have not had to clean my stove top for weeks, which was my incentive for buying the griddler. I have had to experiment with cooking times and can easily grill a burger on the sear feature in two minutes. An easy way to clean the griddler is to place dampened paper towels between the warm plates for five or ten minutes and the n remove and rinse plates….”
” It works as advertised and seems to cook the food properly. I have made cheeseburgers and cooked steak but have not yet used the flat side. However, what prevented this from getting 5 stars was that the lifting handle, which has a slight arc so the middle is higher when open than the sides is 17 and 1/4 inches tall (at the middle). My cabinets are at exactly 17 and 1/8 inch from the counter top. If you are using this on your counter top, you cannot open the top all the way….(read more here: GR-150 Review)”

Cuisinart GR-150 Review – My Opinion
As always I like to look at the lowest ratings to see if there are a lot of the same complaints about a product.
The only complaint I found is that there are no waffle plates available for the Cuisinart GR-15 Griddler.
Many people were disappointed by that, but it is very clearly stated in the product description in my opinion.
The grease does not run down too fast because the slope is not big enough according to some reviews I read. This can make the meat sometimes cook in its own grease and with steak, this can prevent the grill from making grill marks.
So it is maybe advisable to put something under the front legs when you cook a steak.
As always with an electric grill, there are temperature fluctuations and this is because of the fact that the thermostat kicks in and out. It takes a little longer to come back on temperature.
Overall most people are pleased with the Cuisinart gr150 griddle Deluxe and would buy it again.
If the GR150 is not what you are looking for you can have a look at the other Cuisinart grill reviews I did.
