Presto 07030 Cool Touch black Electric Griddle Review

This review page focuses on the black 20-inch Presto 07030 cold touch electric griddle.

Most people would be very happy with the size of this product – its non-stick cooking surface measures 10-1/2 by 20-1/2 inches. Although this surface area is much larger than the small electric griddles available on the market (such as the popular Presto Liddle Griddle model), there are many cookers that can rival the size of this cooker, so it is not unusually large. However, the 07030 can easily accommodate large pieces of food.

As with any electrical appliance, it is important to read the supplied manual and follow the instructions. It is recommended that the surface be seasoned with cooking oil before the first use – this will make the non-stick coating more effective overall (and for proper maintenance of this model, you will also need to season it from time to time).Presto 07030 Cool Touch black Electric Griddle Review

Presto 07030 Cool Touch 20-inch Electric Griddle Black review

Thanks to the fact that this item can be completely submerged when the heating control is removed, it is much easier to clean the unit than griddles that cannot be submerged in water. The non-stick coating also prevents food from sticking to it, but you must clean the non-stick surface carefully and with the proper tools that will not damage or scratch the cooking surface.

On the other hand, this Presto design tends to slip on the countertop, which can be dangerous if you are not careful. The lack of rubber feet is probably the reason why the appliance slips, and whatever the reason or cause, Presto should address this problem. However, this problem can be solved by placing a towel under the unit, or you may find other items/ideas that prevent this product from slipping.

Apparently, not only does the Cool-Touch 07030 tend to slide, but the drip tray also tends to slide. Every time you move this electrical appliance, you must be careful (especially if there is grease inside) and be aware that the drip tray can easily slip. A good idea would be to separate the drip tray from the Presto grill when the appliance is stored or not used (you can place the drip tray on top of the clapper).

Most griddles on the market, especially large ones, have problems with uneven heating, and this cool-touch model 07030 is no different. It is not uncommon for one side of the surface to get hotter than the other, and Presto should design this unit so that the heat is distributed more evenly over the surface. But overall, the heat distribution in this unit is good, and you probably won’t have any serious problems with most foods.

There is no doubt that this Presto Cool Touch product is far from perfect and can be improved, but considering its low cost, it is not so bad. The large non-stick surface of this product does a good job if taken care of properly, and it’s relatively easy to clean this product. However, care should be taken when using the 07030 unit – for both the unit and the drip tray have a tendency to slip.
