As its name suggests, the Biggriddle unit is of considerable size, and with a cooking surface that measures at 18.5 by 15 inches, this product is one of the largest griddles available today.
Moreover, this large machine can catch a lot of counter space so there is also a need to check whether the Biggriddle can actually fit the kitchen countertop.
On the other hand the surface of the Presto Big griddle is able to contain a large amount of pancakes, and the nonstick coating seems to be quite durable. This unit is also equipped with the interesting Tilt n Drain feature that helps draining the extra grease.
By pulling out the handles, the user can tilt the cooking surface and drain the unwanted grease into the drip tray. This, in turn, produces healthier foods and helps with the cleaning of the 07046 design as well.
What about the cooking performance of this appliance? Well, the griddle does seem to reach the high temperatures required for adequate heating, but the heat just isn’t distributed evenly, probably due to the thin cooking surface of this product. Despite the fact that uneven cooking temperature would make it hard to produce perfectly brown pancakes, it’s still possible to get edible and tasty results with the Presto 07046 Biggriddle.
In order to achieve good results with this appliance the user should be aware of the hot and cold spots and monitor the food accordingly. It’s recommended to place the food in the center of the cooking surface first, since the center gets less hot than the rest of the surface. Any food placed directly above the heating element would likely to have dark lines underneath, so it’s better to keep the food away from the squared shape heating element.
When considering the cheap price of this Presto product, it’s not such a bad option, especially with the big cooking surface and the features for easy cleaning.
Being fully submersible in water and dishwasher safe, the 07046 design should be even easier to clean. However, the majority of dishwashers are just not capable of dealing with the large size of the 07046 design. Nevertheless, cleaning this unit is relatively easy compared to other electric griddles, and the Presto Biggriddle is not very heavy for its massive size.
It is important to note that this electrical machine isn’t supposed to act as a warming tray. The manual details all the actions that are allowed to perfom with this particular product and also provide safety instructions that are extremely important to read.
The Presto Big griddle does require the user to pay more attention to the cooking of the food, but the easy cleaning features, its huge size and attractive price certainly make the 07046 appliance an interesting product.
