I bought the Griddler a week ago from Costco. I am in love with it. Cooks everything fantastic and super easy to clean as the plates are detachable. Haven't used frypan since. Can't comment on the longevity of the item as I have only had it for a week or their customer service if anything goes wrong. However, it terms of the item functionality and practicality, it's perfect for me :)
Good product but could be better
I brought this to replace my similar Breville BGR400, this is a bit smaller and the separate drip pot means at times I might not put it under the outlet and have oil drip on the bench. The coating on the plates also has failed after 12 months of nearly daily use and it's got a bubble high spot in the centre of the flat plate, the lock thing that keep the top in place has also failed so the top flops about, it also means now the ttop plate may end up sitting slightly further back and causing the top plates oil to drip onto the bench behind the g...rill. The other design issue is I thought when I brought this I could turn the top plate off, but instead it overcomplicates things with a choice of 2 different thermostat controls for both the plates and buggered if I can find much difference using either of the for cooking anything so far. On my model the plates aren't reversible either, I believe looking at the current models they may have an integrated drip tray an maybe reversible plates now. I want to replace it with the Cusinart GR150 but they aren't available in 240v so might go back to Breville and see if they've fixed the top plate falling out issue. as there's nothing else in 240v that has the same features. Otherwise great for Sandwiches, eggs, meat, fish, bacon etc. Healthy cooking, removable plates, retro styling Didn't last as long as Breville, only fits 2 sandwiches, seperate "drip pot", no way to turn off top plate.
