What experts liked
When I chose it almost one year ago, I was drawn by the professional design and the heavy-duty design.

It comes with a stainless steel back panel to prevent oil from splashing out and also comes with a 2 year replacement warranty.
- Griddle Chef
An adjustable heat control up to 450 degrees lets you cook just about anything.
- Heavy
It heats up very quickly and it comes with an indicator light for the temperature.

Our favorite feature, however, was the detachable, stainless-steel backsplash. It proved a big plus since griddles can definitely spit and splatter (and since they’re mostly flat, it also helps to have a buttress to push against when trying to flip and lift food).

The stainless steel handles that this electric griddle has support a lot of weight. In transit, therefore, the risk of it crumbling under its own weight is slim. They also have cool-touch contacts that boost safety.

It has a removable grease tray with the immersible base when the temperature probe is removed.

It has an environmentally friendly nonstick cooking surface, so your food won’t stick, it’s easy to clean, and you’ll feel good knowing that you aren’t putting any harsh chemicals out into the environment; or into your body!

Broil King came up with an environmentally friendly solution to nonstick coating. Personally, I am always convinced that taking care of our environment in one of the best investments we can make.

What makes this tool one of my favorite pancakes griddle is its build is of top quality providing maintaining the balance between its stellar design and perfect performance. Its unique design makes it easier to assemble and disassemble its parts for cleaning and storage.

Unlike other griddles, the BroilKing PCG 10 professional machine doesn’t suffer from cold spots, and while the left side can be considered a hot spot, once this unit reach its set temperatures, it maintains the heat pretty well.
- Electric Griddle Reviews
One good thing about this griddle is that it comes with a clearly-marked temperature probe unlike other brands such as the Ovente GR2001B. This way, guesswork is eliminated. The probe goes from 200 to 400 degrees F. There is also a warm setting
- Grill, Roast And Fry
A lot of the low-cost electric griddles to be found in the market are cheap and made of plastic, and this is why you can find these to be light in construction. However, the Broil King PCG-10 Electric Griddle is a welcome change. It has a thick and solid cooking surface, and it is a lot thicker than the majority of other electric griddles that can be found today. It has been constructed of heavy-duty cast aluminum, and this makes temperature maintenance more consistent and the distribution of heat more uniform.

This griddle is also immersible for you to easy cleanup without the temperature probe.

The base itself can be immersed in water making for easy clean up.

One good feature is the provision of a backsplash. What makes it even better is the fact that it is removable.

The griddle features rear legs, which makes it convenient for you to allow the grease to run off. You don't have to worry about removing excess grease that builds up when you cook. Plus, the grease tray is removable for safe and easy disposal.

It’s large enough to comfortably cook 8 pancakes at the same time. Many of the extremely positive reviews came from families who religiously held sunday pancake breakfast.

What experts didn't like
Overall, the biggest complaint is the cheap controller and for the price you would expect them to include a better one.
- Griddle Chef
A handful of customers note that the griddle isn’t level on flat surfaces
- Heavy
The only caveat? The Broil King is pricey

There are some hot and cold spots on the surface, but they are not as extreme as in some of the models produced by competitors. No biggie!

Broil King PCG 10 professional appliance is a bit pricy
- Electric Griddle Reviews
As one person has observed, the griddle is not entirely flat. It is “sunken a little in the middle,” which gives some food the tendency to move or run towards that area.
- Grill, Roast And Fry
Some of the buyers of the Broil King PCG-10 Electric Griddle have reported that the unit has a bigger weight than many other standard electric griddles to be found in the market. However, the higher weight ensures a more solid build. The higher price has also come under criticism. But this device comes with the promise of a superior quality and durability, which justify its higher price tag.

The drip tray is quite small. Keep checking it during cooking. If it’s full, it will mess your table up.

However, the manual explains this and lets you know which areas on the grill are hotter than others.

Nonstick coating is prone to scratches
- Top Electric Griddle
It’s not perfect though. There aren’t any rubber feet, you think that this would be a simple decision, but it makes the feet of the griddle a little less stable than I wish.
