The Broil King Corporation is a famous manufacturer that markets various foodservice appliances. Other than the popular BroilKing griddle, the company produces a wide range of products including barbeques and grills, buffet carts, convention ovens and more.
While there are a couple of models to choose from, one BroilKing unit is gaining a lot of attention and is constantly being chosen as one of the best electric griddles by multiple magazines – the PCG 10 Professional model. The other BroilKing griddles have yet to attain similar recognition, especially the GRD550 appliance of this brand that has a unique problem that doesn’t exist in other similar units.
Broil King PCG 10 Professional Griddle
This large appliance has a heavy cast aluminum surface which makes the unit quite heavy when compared to other electrical griddles. Being so big and heavy, this unit can be hard to store, so it’s important to make sure you have enough room for storage and enough space on the kitchen’s counter as well.
It takes a bit longer for this kitchen product to warm up, since it’s so thick. When preheated properly, it distributes the heat quite evenly across the surface, an important factor for perfectly brown pancakes.
Additional two reviews of other griddles from the same brand are listed below.
Broil King USG 10G Ultra Large Griddle
Although this kitchen item is made from heavy materials that should help the heat distributed more evenly, there are some temperature differences on the surface of this appliance. Storage too might be an issue with this product, so it’s necessary to make sure that there is enough space to accommodate this big unit.

One of the more unique BroilKing griddles in the market is the GRD550 model that requires the user to assemble the unit’s parts. While putting together the parts is not hard, the problem is that the short screws have a tendency to fall off (and the fact the majority of electrical griddles don’t come disassembled).
This may require the user to buy slightly bigger screws, and there’s no doubt that it won’t cause the unit to be more popular. That’s too bad, since this BroilKing machine does offer a pretty large cooking surface and its heat distribution seems to be adequate.
