It is fully immersible and dishwasher safe with the heat control removed. This griddles premium nonstick surface and a built-in backstop ledge provide easy food handling.

Dishwasher and submersion-safe. As long as you remove the temperature control knob, you won’t have to worry about putting the cooking plate in the dishwasher or soaking it in water to clean it.

My favorite thing about this model was the ease by which I could clean it up. I would literally be done in about less than two minutes, it was that easy to remove the tray and put it under water (after it has cooled off, understandably).

This Presto 07047 is the best deal for the money; it offers large cooking surface with excellent nonstick surface and cool touch base.

The drip tray is removable for clean. If you need to cook a lot, remember to check the tray frequently. When the tray is full, the oil will drip to your countertop and mess it up.

The base is heavy, durable cast aluminum. The griddle stays in place during cooking and won’t tip over. The cool touch surround base reduces the risk of burns and scalds.

What experts didn't like
Short power cord. Depending on the layout of your kitchen and where your outlets are located, you may need an extension cord to use this because of the short power cord.
- Review Lab
It is PFOA free but not free of PTFE. This is not such a big issue, but it is best to avoid this if you have pet birds, as it can be dangerous to them.
