What makes the Blackstone griddle different?

The Blackstone Griddle stands out in the crowded market of outdoor cooking for several compelling reasons. It has a flat top griddle design, unlike the traditional grill grates found on most barbecues, that provides a smooth, even cooking surface to eliminate the common issues of flare-ups and uneven heating ensuring consistently well-cooked meals. The griddle style also allows you to cook foods that would normally fall through grill grates, such as eggs, small vegetables, and even delicate fish. Plus, the large cooktop space makes cooking for large families or groups SO easy. The Blackstone comes in sizes from 17″ all the way up to 36″. There is a size to fit every need and space! We also love the price on these griddles! They are priced REALLY well in comparison to a lot of other grills. The 36″ size that Corrine has is less than $300 and the best price on the market right now!!

One of the great features of the Blackstone Griddle is the wide array of accessories available that can enhance your grilling experience. From custom-fitted covers to protect your grill from the elements, to a variety of cooking utensils specially designed for the flat top, there’s something for every grilling need. Add-ons like the breakfast kit with pancake dispensers and bacon presses make morning meals a breeze, while a griddle toolkit with spatulas and choppers is perfect for expertly flipping burgers or dicing veggies right on the grill. There’s even a pizza oven attachment for those who want to venture beyond traditional grilling. These accessories not only maximize the functionality of your Blackstone Griddle but also make outdoor cooking convenient and FUN!

What to cook on it?

The Blackstone Griddle is seriously perfect for almost any meal you can imagine. Breakfast enthusiasts can whip up everything from fluffy pancakes and crispy bacon to perfectly cooked eggs all at once. For lunch or dinner, it's ideal for grilling burgers, hot dogs, and steaks to perfection with that desirable charred flavor. Vegetables and seafood also cook beautifully on its expansive surface, making it easy to serve up a complete meal. The flat top even makes it possible to try your hand at more adventurous dishes like stir-fries, quesadillas, and even teppanyaki-style foods, turning your backyard into a gourmet kitchen!

How to clean it?

Keeping your Blackstone Griddle in tip-top shape is key to ensuring it remains your go-to for outdoor cooking, especially after whipping up a feast. The cleanup process is surprisingly simple! Start by heating the grill to burn off any leftover food particles. Then, use a grill scraper to gently remove debris from the surface. Once the grill is cool, wipe it down with a cloth and warm, soapy water. For a finishing touch, apply a thin layer of cooking oil to the surface to protect it and help maintain its non-stick properties. Regular maintenance like this will keep your Blackstone Griddle perfectly seasoned and ready for your next summer meal!
