Question Two burner griddle on stovetop OK?

We have a new Flying Cloud and are about to set out on our maiden voyage. Just noticed that the instruction manual that comes with the stove says not to use a griddle. But didn't notice that before purchasing a new two burner cast iron griddle, visions of pancakes dancing in our heads.

Any one have experience with this? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

We use a two burner cast iron griddle at home all the time to make pancakes. We've never considered taking it in the Airstream, mainly because it is heavy and bulky and we want to conserve space. In our FC, the burners are arranged in a triangular shape, and I guess you would put it on the two rear burners? The only thing I can imagine is that the weight might be too much for the burners? Just be careful putting it on and taking it off, I guess.

We bought a teflon, two burner griddle for the Interstate, and used it several times until we noticed the hot griddle's extension over the control knobs caused them to melt and deform where the griddle touched them.

Cast iron is very heavy to carry, but many of us do.

We use one all the time. It does not extend beyond the burners. Ours is coated aluminum so not heavy at all

X2^. If we don't have electricity, a griddle on a camp stove works well.

This happened to us and as my wife tried to turn off the burners, burned her finger so she tried again with a paper towel which caught fire of course and set off the smoke detector.

I do the cooking now and use a pan to cook PANcakes. :-D

Danger of too large pans

Our 2007 19' Bambi came with a warning label on the stove to not use pans with a diameter greater than 10". The problem was not with weight, but with excess heat build-up on the stove top. We carry a camping stove to use outside when we are camping with a group and need to use larger pots or a griddle.

We have a small Lodge griddle we use over the large front burner. It works great and the heat transfers fine to the portion not directly over the flame. Have never had a problem.

ID:	287664 We have a 75 Sovereign and I used the griddle too from our cast iron pot. It worked great except I don't use gas stoves at home so i didn't realize that I had it way too hot. It was a great breakfast. But I also got an electric griddle to use in and out of doors.
