Cuisinart Griddler GR-1

Best Budget grill/sandwich press

Pros
  • Fits two sandwiches
  • Floating hinge
  • Easy to clean
  • Cooks evenly
Cons
  • No on/off switch
  • Only one temperature setting

Owners praise the Cuisinart Griddler GR-1, which can accommodate two sandwiches of any thickness thanks to its floating hinge. The 11-by-7 inch nonstick grill plates aren't removable, but users say it's easy to clean. The Cuisinart Griddler GR-1 heats up to its single temperature setting when plugged in; there's no on/off switch, but a green light indicates that the unit is on and a red light indicates it's ready to cook. Owners appreciate the ability to use the Cuisinart Griddler GR-1 as a griddle by opening the unit flat, doubling the cooking space. When used as a sandwich press, it offers 77 square inches of cooking space, and 154 square inches when used as an open griddle. If you don't need sandwich-making capabilities and want a larger cooking surface, the Sanyo Smokeless Indoor Electric Grill HPS-SG3 (*Est. $50) gets positive reviews from owners.

The Cuisinart Griddler GR-1 isn't covered in any professional reviews, but we found hundreds of owner-written reviews on Amazon.com and several dozen on Viewpoints.com.
