This griddle is pretty good and it serves its purpose. There are only two problems I had. I couldn't leave the griddle outside with out it being covered because it began to rust, I believe you have to buy a cover. Also we do a lot of catering and the cart was missing steam warmers and pans. I ordered a stainless steel griddle same size from another company, I believe their web site is tacocarts.com. They also carried carts with steam warmers for caterers. Happy cooking everyone.
I have really enjoyed cooking on this griddle. I have cooked fried rice on it a couple of times with steak and shrimp and it came out great. This is the first flattop griddle that I have ever used. Everything I have cooked has come off great. The only thing I would change on the cooker is the grease drain. It is not the best design when cooking high fat food. Clean up is also very easy.
Fabulous products Excellent web site and tremendous service.
Purchased this griddle for my concession business after reading online positive reviews about it. Manufacturer informed that Lowes carries it (special order). Ordered it assembled, picked up yesterday. Grill was very banged up, scratched and unstable, many dings, dents and even a few bends (crossbar, right front leg, drip pan). Called manufacturer and they asked for photos. Sent photos in today, waiting for response. Disappointed that I have not even got to use it yet and I need a replacement. Who banged it up ... Lowes, manufacturer, or was this a return??? Will post experience with manufacturer when they respond.
Poor packaging, silk screen unreadable, poorly design leg assembly, wobbly, it appears to topple over since its top heavy. side shelf unusable. flat top has dents and scratches, someone does not know how to use a grinder and poor welding job. nonexistent quality control. Warning labels already came off on first used. Blackstone redesigned the product to make it sturdier but they are still shipping the old crappy design.
This is a great alternative to out door cooking. Cooks great, easy clean up. What you cant grill you can put on this griddle and have a complete meal ready to take up at the same time. Love this griddle and a great price. Looked at many on the internet and this was a great buy compared to other places. I would highly recommend buying this item. My first time on Competitive Edge and I was totally pleased with the outcome.
Cheap, cheap, cheap! What a piece of crap!
It came dented and bent. And that was not from the shipper(the box was perfect). Now, trying to start the flame, it wont go. I think I have to replace the regulator. They installed the cheapest money could buy. Now I am stuck with it and have to try and get it to work.
Do Not waste your money on this!
We just received our griddle via FedEx. The top griddle box was in tough shape upon arrival, but the griddle top was still OK. The box for the base was fine. I had to drill out the hole to put the bolt through for the bottom shelf because of slag left from the welding. I was disappointed there is no bracket to mount the propane tank to the griddle. This means when
or if I want to move it (even though it has 4 wheels and rolls nice) you need two people to move it, or disconnect the tank, move the grill and reconnect the tank. I also wish there was more information or instruction on how to prepare, clean, and preserve the griddle
top, and recommended tools or cleaners to use on it. We have used our griddle once so far. It
was fun to use and worked well overall.
This unit is a great item. We have a lot of family gatherings and now we can cook the whole meal all at once, instead of separate skillets. We fix a big breakfast every Sun, morn. This is so great now to do it all at once.
My brother ordered 2 from Lowes in Presisle, Maine. When they arrived,they phoned to tell us. After I drove 9 Hours to Presisle,there was only 1 that arrived. They said the other would be in on Tuesday(5 days later)I had to return to Canada with only 1 as they would not ship the other to Canada so I had to cancel. We had our family reunion and it was a blessing to have one(2 would have been perfect)
My only complaint was the grease holder was to small to hold all the grease especially when cooking bacon. Is there any way that I can order another through a Canadian outlet? If not,I guess I will have to make the 18 hr return trip to the States again. Thanks again for a great product. John
This griddle is great! Only one thing I would suggest is make sure if you are cooking for more than two is put a larger stainless dish under grease drain because the one that is there is not big enough. The griddle is wonderful and nicely priced, large cooking area and holds it heat well. I have a lot of fun cooking on it for about 100 people! I would buy it again.
This is perfect item to work I love it that is why I am going to order one more. I have 2 all ready.
esta parrilla esta perfecta se las recomiendo, yo compre dos y ahora mismo voy a ordenar una mas para tener tres atte: Jose Charles.
love the griddle just bought this one for a buddy I have two
After almost three months of use, the griddle got fire exposing my wife, my daughter and my life in danger. This product is advertised as commercial but the warranty does not apply if it is used for commercial purposes. That is a misleading advertisement to put it mildly.
The griddle got fire because of a simple loose screw that let some gas out and caught fire because of a gust of wind or because of a faulty rubber gasket.
I would not recommend buying this griddle. It is unsafe. (Response from Competitive Edge Product, Inc., - thank you for notifying us of this issue and we are sorry you had this issue. We have forwarded this on to the manufacturer for their investigation.)
My griddle arrived on schedule but with slight damage. This was a shipper issue, accepted it. Nice size, easy to assemble and well thought out layout. The biggest negative is that while I knew it did not have thermostat control of the burners, the valves should be able to turn down lower. It isn't possible to maintain a breakfast temperature for eggs without cycling the burners. Works fine for burgers, etc. but too hot for eggs without cycling the burners. This was in a shelter.
We purchased the griddle for our bicycling teams use. We are now able to cook pancakes before the races and events, as well as burgers and dogs, or spaghetti dinners afterwards. It is extremely easy to set up, heats up quickly and most important. IT DOES NOT STICK !!!!! Would recommend it for any organization needing a portable cooking device . Your service and delivery was top scale also. Thanks.
These griddles are the best on the market I just bought a second one for myself also buy the cover with the griddle its worth it I tried a cheap one from local hardware and that is just what it was a cheap one these are well made and worth the money
Excellent value, well built
This griddle is great! I googled griddle when my club was having a pancake breakfast and found the Blackstone portable griddle. I purchased and we cooked for 150 people easily.
The griddle is easy to move around and to clean. It heated up fast and cooked evenly and efficiently. It was the hit of my club. Four of my friends have purchased the griddle since I have,and more friends will be purchasing for Xmas gifts. All my friends that have purchased this griddle have been overwhelmed as I have. I highly recommend you buy one today!
I love a good cookout just like the next guy. I simply cant believe how portable this grill is. I love the fact that it is so easy to assemble. I literally could have taken it straight from the delivery truck to the campground. Never has cooking for 50+ Boy Scouts been so easy!
One awesome feature is that all of the burners are independently controlled. That provides a great deal of versatility. I can cook meat and vegetables at the same time. Not to mention I can cook for a HUGE number of people! It's fantastic!
This griddle is an intricate part of my catering business. It makes set up so quick and easy. Cleanup is easy too! The caster wheels make it easy to move even when assembled. I love the simplicity and the design. Genius.
