The Presto brand is usually the first manufacturer of electrical griddles that comes to mind when thinking of the top brands in the market. This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, especially when examining the company’s reputation and popularity. The average Presto unit is quite cheap when compared to other griddles and the results can usually rival if not outmatch more expensive products.
This Company currently has a number of models competing for spots in the top ten most popular electrical griddles. Boasting with fairly attractive prices, the appliances of this brand include a couple of big designs and a small one that is intended for the use of 1-2 people.
The following list includes short reviews of the various Presto griddles (Note that currently not all the models of this company are included in this list, but rather the more popular ones).
Presto 07046 Tilt n Drain Big Griddle
This appliance has a nonstick feature and with its surface measures at 15 by 18.5 inches, it offers a spacious cooking space. This unit has a Tilt ‘n Drain built-in feature that help draining the grease more easily compared to other electrical griddles.
On the other hand, the center of the 07046 Biggriddle seems to get less hot than the rest of the surface, thus require the user to pay more attention to temperatures and monitoring of the food.
Presto 07039 Professional 22 Inch Jumbo
However, the cooking surface of this appliance tends to reach higher temperatures in some spots compared to other areas, particularly the center.
Presto 07030 Cool Touch 20 Inch Griddle Black
Being quite cheap like other griddles manufactured by the same brand, this one also heats up rather quickly and is designed to allow easy cleaning. Despite all the positive features, the 07030 model tends to slide around a little, probably because the lack of rubber feet. Anyway, it can be solved with little efforts by the user.
Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle
Designed in order to fit for a smaller group of individuals, usually one to two people, this unit has some very interesting features. Being dishwasher safe, this appliance offers the attractive opportunity of placing it in the dishwasher.
Unlike other griddles manufactured by the said company (and also those of other brands), this one is very compact and won’t catch a lot of space in your kitchen. Its heat distribution is also more accurate, probably because of its small size.
Presto 07045 Family-Size Cool-Touch Tilt’N Drain Model
Like many other Presto griddles from that offer a large non stick cooking surface, the 07045 design also comes with similar features. Some of these features include the tilt’ n drain functionality, a dishwasher safe unit and a couple of other things that could interest the average consumer. However, the big size of this appliance will make it hard to clean and store, and the heat distribution of this model isn’t very impressive too.
In general, the kitchen appliances of the said company are well known and reputed products that other than griddles include grills, pressure cookers, electrical skillets and more.
