Presto 07055 Electric Ceramic Griddle Review

Electric griddles are a great way to cook food quickly and with ease. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner can be prepared on them. Their nonstick surface allows for easier cooking and faster clean-up. Plus, they are portable so that you can take them anywhere.

If you’re looking for a new griddle, the Presto 07055 electric ceramic griddle is an excellent choice. Let’s dive in and learn why this griddle is such a great option.

Cooking

This griddle does a great job cooking with its variable temperature control and nonstick ceramic surface. It can handle anything from delicate pancakes to greasy bacon. How about some delicious omelets? Oh yeah, it’ll handle them too.

It has a 10.5 x 20-inch cooking surface, so you’ll have plenty of room to fix up some good eats for the fam. There’s also a handy built-in backstop ledge that will help prevent your food from sliding off the edge when you go to flip it.

Tip: Griddles sometimes slide around while you’re cooking on them. You can put a wet paper towel under the griddle to prevent it from sliding.

Ceramic Nonstick

I prefer ceramic or copper nonstick surfaces over the more popular Teflon/PTFE cookware for safer cooking. According to Healthline, “Generally speaking, Teflon is a safe and stable compound. However, at temperatures above 570°F (300°C), Teflon coatings on nonstick cookware start to break down, releasing toxic chemicals into the air.” Even though I don’t cook at temperatures that high, I still prefer the safer alternative nonstick surfaces. So it makes me happy to see that this griddle uses a ceramic surface. Furthermore, Presto’s Customer Service stated that this griddle is both PTFE and PFOA, which should bring you added peace of mind. 

Cleaning

This griddle is easy to clean, thanks to its nonstick surface. Remove the heat control and wash the griddle with warm soapy water. The griddle is fully submersible with the heat control removed. Don’t forget the clean the underside, and make sure you never use an abrasive cleaning pad on the nonstick surface.

Concluding Thoughts

This griddle is an excellent purchase if you’re looking for a versatile cooking appliance for your family. It has a safer ceramic nonstick surface, a good-sized cooking surface, and it’s pretty easy to clean as well. I didn’t mention in the review the low-profile design of this unit. This allows it to be used as a buffet server (one less dish to wash, ha!).

If you’re looking for a great griddle, look no further. Pick up this one. You’ll be glad you did!
