Blackstone Griddle – 17 Inch

Like most homes these days, we have both an indoor and an outdoor kitchen.

After more than 20 years with our trusty old Weber grill, we have recently switched to a Blackstone griddle, which we bought in November 2020 – and we couldn’t be happier.

The Blackstone Griddle has more cooking space than our Weber – 260 square inches as opposed to only 189 square inches. That is a huge increase.

The 17″ is ideal for two-to-three people, but if you are four or more we suggest looking at the the 22″ version.

Within the last two months we’ve taken this griddle round the block. We’re cooking more outside now because it is neater and the heat distribution is fantastic. For the Mexican food and Asian rice dishes we love – the griddle works beautifully.

For example, Huevos Rancheros. We are able to put a pot on the grill and heat up the beans, then move the pot into a cooler corner to keep the beans warm. We put a small copper cup in the corner to warm up our salsa verde to douse the eggs. While those two pots are in the corners, we baste 4 eggs at once while warming 4 corn tortillas. Everything is served at the perfect temperature. FANTASTIC!

We love fried rice. Everything is prepared at once in separate areas on the griddle – the rice, the veggies, the meat or tofu.

Oh! And the french toast … the. best. EVER!

A small hole in the corner is provided to scrape all the debris which is caught in a handy cup for easy disposal.

Easy clean-up!

The burners below the top are never exposed, so they remain clean. The griddle itself takes only a few moments to clean and prepare for the next meal.

The Blackstone Griddle was just what we needed to make all of this pandemic cooking more fun, full of discovery and even more delicious.

No, you can’t have our griddle. We’re keeping this thing. Get your own.
