About the Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle
Wow! This Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle mini griddle is the little griddle with a big heart and low price tag. We love that the master heat control automatically maintains the temperature, giving you that even grilling experience. It has, like most electric griddles these days, a handy built-in grease tray that makes it easier to clean.
This is a compact electric griddle, so it’s ideal for just one or two people. Its compact size makes it easy to store. You can also remove the heat-resistant leg-handle units for even more compact storage).

Cooking with the Presto Liddle Griddle
To give you an idea of its size and cooking area, the Liddle Griddle has an 8.5″ by 10.5″ inch cooking surface that will cook four fried eggs or two good-sized steaks.
It’s a perfect pancake griddle, too.
Coated with a slightly textured, durable nonstick finish, the Liddle Griddle is a healthier cooking choice because it requires very little grease. If you’re cooking fattier meats like bacon, the built-in channel along one end catches the fat drippings.
It maintains temperatures from warm to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to cook steaks. Because it’s made of cast aluminum, it resists warping and heat is distributed consistently for more even cooking. This is something you’ll find a lot of reviewers agree on – the temperature control is spot on and there aren’t any cools spots on the surface.
You’ll find it’s very sturdy and stable on an even benchtop.
Easy clean griddle
You can remove the griddle’s heat control and fully submerge the unit in warm, soapy water to give it a good clean. How clever is that!?! You won’t have to worry about the ghosts of meals past haunting your lasting cooking creation on the Liddle Griddle.
While some people have reported success in the dishwasher, we don’t recommend it. Stick to warm soapy water in the sink. The dishwasher is a bit harsh and the process might damage the nonstick coating.
