So far, so good

I've only used the griddlegrill a few times, but so far it's great. Actually haven't tried the grill side yet, but the griddle makes a great breakfast and really delicious grilled veggies. Fits perfectly on my old-fashioned electric coil stove. Just a few minor complaints: It apparently it has some kind of enamel coating and therefore can't be seasoned like regular cast iron, so I think you have to use a little oil on it every time. The surface is also a bit rough, so whatever you do, don't try to dry it with a paper towel, or anything that might give off lint -- you'll have to wash it again. Some things did stick, like eggs, but I think I probably had it too hot. Just soaked it for a few minutes and then it clearned off easily with a nylon scrubber. I'm looking forward using it some more and getting the hang of it.
Convenient 2 in 1

I love the two in one feature when you have limited storage space. The griddle heats evenly for the most part and cooks/cleans well.
stove top grill is a must

I love the option of grilling indoors and the cast iron really heats up quick and cooks food well. We have a gas stove so the middle of the grill doesn't get as hot since there is not a burner right under it. It is heavy and hard to clean, depending on what you are cleaning. It is definitely NOT a non-stick surface but the trade off of using cast iron makes it worth it. I just put tin foil over the grill and cook on the tin foil. The grill marks are not as pronounced then, but grill marks do still form and the food still tastes great. Then for clean up, I just throw the tin foil away which is so much more simple. I would recommend this to a friend however, I have not tried different stove top grills to compare to.

Good quality for the price
Min from California– Verified Buyer
This is a very good quality stove top griddle for the price. I found some that were a little cheaper but the quality wasn't nearly as good.
