We ended up with mixed feelings about this product, though this is probably due to the heat distribution on an electric range.

We bought the Chef King 10 Gauge Steel Griddle, 12 Inch x 20 Inch, from amazon (link above).


After around 4 months of use, I am ready to opine on the "Chef King 10 Gauge Steel Griddle".


The bottom line is that it is OK. I have an idea for a griddle design which I would love. I'll write about that on a separate post.


We have an electric range with a middle "bridge burner", so we thought this would be a good fit. Unfortunately, the steel griddle does not diffuse the heat evenly and you're stuck with a very hot middle griddle.

After use, you can see the extensive and uneven carbonization in this picture:

It seems to work alright.. cooking some breakfast dinner on it:

It might heat more evenly on a gas range with large burners.


Recommended: Maybe, but not for electric ranges.
