Grill, Griddle or Both at the Same Time


All these three functions are achieved by having two reversible cooking plates. The usual grill and griddle combos have only one reversible plate, so you can either grill or griddle at one time. This Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 griddle uses two reversible cooking plates, so that you can put one in grill mode and flip the other to keep the grill surface on top. So you can simultaneously grill on one plate, and use the other plate as griddle.

Another remarkable feature of this 3 in 1 grill is that both cooking plates come with independent temperature controls. This enables you to keep different temperatures for any cooking options. In fact, if you are using only one option like grill or griddle; then you can keep the other plate on “Keep Warm” mode, so that when you serve, everything is at the right temperature.
