Well we did buy the Cruisnet Panini /grill. We will use it a home but it will also become one of the toys for the AS. My concern is if I keep purchasing appliances fot the AS will I have room for my wife.

Tried this for lunch in our AS today. Two days ago a good friend gave me a 10" square old Griswald. I used it on the bottom. Used my #8 SK on top. Had the bottom pan a little too hot so one side was a little too dark (read black), but not so bad as not to eat. Next time (read dinner) it will be perfect.
I always cook on cast iron, so nothing extra to buy or carry.

Thanks for the tip.

I use a waffle maker ($3 thrift-store find). The bread is branded with little squares - no big deal.

Another Griddler owner here. I chose it because it doubles as an electric grill for outdoor cooking. We use it constantly when camping.

Perfect, and if the spirit moves you you can also make waffles in it. Space is limited so multi purpose devices are more desirable than single purpose ones. My Foreman G5 make waffles, burgers, steak ,omelettes,and even pannini. The grill lines on the pannini are not really perfect, but the result tastes every but as good.

I agree with you too, but is seemed that the OP was bent and determined to get an appliance. From that angle a single purpose appliance is the opposite end of the scale from your suggestion of a work around. A multi purpose appliance would fall in between.

The removable plates sold me on the Griddler. I always hated having to balance the George Foreman on the counter and try to get it clean without getting water everywhere. Perhaps George Foreman grill has removable plates now but I made the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever on the Griddler a couple of weeks ago.

Dana your post made me laugh. We still have and use Georgie Forgie. But sometimes when something would cook equally well on either we choose the griddler just based on what clean up will be like. On either one of them I put a stack of wet paper towels on when we finish so it doesn't cake on to the grates.
