The Presto Large Oven is also ideal for grilling meats, burgers and chicken with its Tilt 'n' Drain feature. This makes for a healthier roast.


Overview

With the Presto 7046 Tilt 'n Drain Large Grill, the large grill is a super-large 18.5" x 15" hot surface with more space than competitors' jumbo grills. There's space for a whole batch of pancakes, 12 slices of French toast or generous portions of bacon and scrambled eggs here. The whole family can enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast at the same time, and it becomes a fun, stress-free experience.

The Presto large grill is also ideal for grilling meats, burgers and chicken with its Tilt 'n' Drain feature. This makes for a healthier roast and reduces mess. It allows fat, grease and other liquids to escape from the cooking meat, down to the built-in drip tray.

The Presto 7046 grill features a cool touch surround in a sleek, low-profile unit that, despite its large cooking area, measures just 23 x 18.5 inches and is 5 inches tall.

In our Presto  7046 Big Griddle review, we step you through the features of this Tilt ‘n Drain Cool Touch electric griddle.


Review

About the Presto 7046 Tilt 'n Drain Big Griddle Cool-Touch electric griddle

 

What we love about this electric griddle is the super-sized surface which is great for cooking a big family meal.

The Presto 7046 griddle, the 'big griddle' can cook up to 50 percent more food than other jumbo griddles available.

Whether you're looking for something for breakfast with bacon, eggs and pancakes, or to cook a steak for dinner, the Presto Big Griddle can handle it all.

Made with a heavy cast aluminum base, you'll find this unit doesn't warp and it's also very stable.

If you need a smaller, more compact electric griddle, check out Presto's Lidde Griddle.

PROS

  • Heats quickly
  • Even cooking
  • Easy to clean
  • Great value for the price

CONS

Cooking with the Presto 07046 Big Griddle

This griddle comes with Presto's 'Control Master®' heat control to automatically maintain an even cooking temperature. Some users have complained that the surface is unevenly heated, making it hard to cook things like bacon well. But most users say they've found it to be very even.

The cooking surface is HUGE! You can cook as many as 12 slices of french toast at one time.

If you prepare food for big groups but don't have the budget to invest in a commercial grill, you'll find the Presto 07046 Big Griddle is an affordable solution for higher volume cooking.

The Big Griddles special 'Tilt 'n Drain' feature allows the griddle to easily adjust from a level grilling surface for eggs to a tilted draining surface for meats. Even with the tilted surface (for draining the fat) you'll find that the meat doesn't slide.  The griddle tilts by pulling the handles outward. To return to a level cooking surface, simply push the handles back in.

Cleaning the Big Griddle

You'll find the premium nonstick surface makes cooking and easy cleaning. This griddle has a slide-out drip tray that you can empty easily, even while cooking.

Families love this because cooking up a big breakfast now doesn't mean washing up a lot of pots and pans. You can do it all on this big griddle.

Take out the heat control and this unit is fully submersible. Wash it with warm soapy water.  Even though you can put it in the dishwasher, we don't recommend it. The harsh chemicals can wear away the non-stick surface.

The cooking surface is 14" by 15".

Final Thought

This extra-large tiltable grill from Presto is a versatile, convenient and healthy way to serve family meals and large gatherings. It has the ability to bake and cook evenly for whole breakfasts, meats and grilled foods. The extra-deep heating plate creates a flexible area where different foods can be separated and moved to prevent burning and sticking.

Pancake chefs among those using the Presto 7046 grill praised the even heat and golden browning on the large cooking surface. Warm up time to 350 degrees is reported to be about 10 minutes: not the fastest, but very acceptable given the size of the plate and the indicated temperature being correct.

There are some complaints about the design of the handle and the tilt mechanism. Some become unstable after a period of regular use, the build quality can be improved.

Obviously you'll need a larger, deeper countertop space than the average electric grill, and at 23 x 18.5 inches, it's not easy to stow away. Buyers have saved a lot of pans and clean up at breakfast time, and there are many satisfied reports of these large grills getting heavy daily use.
