How to choose a good griddle

a professional brand

That the brand is well known and is part of the favorites in the market, can always give us confidence. In the case of grill plates, as it is a appliance Quite popular for years, almost all brands have one (or several) options in their product menu. Today we will analyze firms as popular as Taurus or more recent as Cecotec.

In any case, when in doubt, it is always useful to be guided by the comments and evaluations of other buyers, who can guide us through so many offers with their own experience.

Power

The power and design of the iron when it comes to distributing heat can also be decisive when choosing the perfect iron. Generally, medium-sized irons range between 2,000 and 2,500W of power. If we choose one of lower power, we must take into account its size before buying it, to avoid falling short.

Size

The size should also influence the decision, it is useless to opt for an XL size iron when we live alone or as a couple. Most of the plates have similar measurements, but there are smaller options to save when buying them and in energy expenditure if we are few at home.

Materials

The materials must also influence our decision, especially if we want them to last over time, remain as new after use or contain a suitable non-stick coating (which allows us, among other things, to cook with little oil).

Another consequence of choosing a certain type of material or not is that is dishwasher safesomething recommended if we are too lazy to clean it or we do not want this type of hassle.

Multifunctionality

A grill plate may seem simple without more complications than grill foodbut some may include extras such as a grill part or even a raclette to melt cheese while we grill the meat on top.

If we are going to use these extras regularly, it is a good idea to take them into account, but if it is something unusual for us, it is not worth spending more to include them.
