    1. Gramma Cook, it’s been a lot of fun using the Griddler and wasn’t even aware that there were waffle plates available – fabulous!!

      1. After posting the comment about the waffle plates I did some research on Amazon….not sure the plates are available for your model yet.

        1. Oh, that’s no problem at all, it has plenty of other features that will keep me busily content :) Thanks so much for looking into that for me, Gramma Cook!

  1. Yum! This does sound wonderful. One way I would customize it is to substitute mango for pineapple. The Griddler Deluxe almost looks like it could double as a panini press… This is an appliance I would opt for if my husband ever gets to where he cannot grill. That’s something he’s great at that I’ve never been able to master. And the idea of having to do anything with those heavy gas canisters – forget it. Looking forward to trying this.

    1. Thanks, Susan! I love mango and that would be a great a great option. Yes, the Griddler Deluxe does pretty much everything (including the panini press you mentioned) and can be adjusted in several different combinations because it has two separate plates that can be also be combined (contact grill, full grill, full griddle, grill/griddle, panini press, top melt, etc). I’m not a grill master either, Susan, and I do love the convenience of this Griddler Deluxe. I haven’t used even half of its options yet but I’m looking forward to experimenting with it.

  2. Hmmm, my stepson is moving into his first off campus apartment and I was going to buy him a George Foreman but maybe what I should do is give him ours and upgrade to the Cuisinart. I’m to the point that I need to give up an appliance before I get a new one, but fortunately my husband never complains because he know he will reap the rewards!

  3. Yum, these kabobs look so delicious! I have a weakness for kitchen gadgets and appliances. I’m always wanting new ones, it drives my husband crazy lol :)

    1. We share the same weakness, Rachel – and it sounds like we married twin brothers, too ;) Happy cooking!

  4. I have the regular Cuisinart Griddler and LOVE it so I’m not a bit surprised you love your new Deluxe model. These teriyaki kabobs look wonderful! Looking forward to trying them, thanks!

    1. It’s been a really fun appliance to use, Candace. I used it again the other night and made a complete steak dinner. I had the steak, potato wedges, corn and asparagus all grilling on it at the same time and it all turned out perfectly. Enjoy the kabobs!
