Nathan's Reversible Griddle & Grill: Does it Work?

By Lauren Keith - bio | email

BURFORDVILLE, MO (KFVS) - Are you hungry? We're wasting no time getting right to this week's test.

Julie Rush and I lightly grease the griddle side of Nathan's Reversible Stovetop Griddle and Grill.

We'll see if we can cook pancakes and bacon on this.

After all, this griddle doesn't have a power button. Instead, you place it on your stovetop.

"I like how you've got both sides going," said Julie.

She notes though the true test will be seeing if the center of this griddle actually cooks anything.

After all, the burner isn't directly underneath it.

She pours some batter in that spot to see.

Meantime, the bacon's sizzling on top of the back burner.

Time to flip.

"I'm impressed."

Both the pancakes and bacon are cooked to perfection in no time, and passing the taste test from Julie's daughter, Elizabeth.

"It's really, really good," said Elizabeth.

But we're not ready to serve up an 'A' just yet.

Let's see how this cleans.

We like the little tray on the side where the grease easily collects. The rest easily wipes up.

We flip over the griddle and move onto the grill side for part two of this test.

This time, Julie wants to see if grilling hamburgers on this is better than her George Foreman grill.

"Wow, it's got the griddle marks showing up on the meat."

So far so good.

It'll be interesting though to see how long it takes the burgers to cook.

The directions say you cannot place the stovetop heat on high for fear of damage to the grill and/or your stovetop.

We use medium-high here.

Meantime, Julie's really liking this product and may end up trading in her big bulky griddle for this cheaper model.

"I'd use it over my griddle and over my George Foreman grill. The clean-up is a lot easier."

The results are pretty good with the same amount of cooking time as normal.

"Very impressive. very."

All the burgers are cooked evenly, even the patties that weren't in direct heat, and it's easy to use.

"I'm gonna go with an 'A'."

Me, too.

I stop short of an A+ though because you can't use this on all stovetops.

No glass tops allowed, and only on even surfaces.

Still, it's a sizzling' hot grade 'A' for Nathan's $15 Reversible Stovetop Grill and Griddle on this Does it Work test.

I bought it at Target in Cape Girardeau. Remember, if your burners are not even heights, this will not work.
