What do you look forward to about weekends? For me it’s pancakes. Every Saturday is “pancake day” and on Sundays we use our griddle to make bacon-potato-red pepper hash. YUM!
Our Presto Griddle is a workhorse. I’m buried in snow here in New England, so what better way to cheer up than share my love of pancakes. Plus, tomorrow is the start of Lent! (When folks often give up rich foods like pancakes.) Today we are giving away a beautiful Presto Griddle worth about $50.

I made a quick video telling you why I love my Presto griddle so much.
We can fit four large pancakes easily onto our griddle, or a couple of pancakes and stripes of bacon. We also use it to make a big batch of scrambled eggs – it can hold 8 eggs no prob. You wouldn’t believe how much toddlers can eat! It has a drip drawer to catch bacon grease, though you can also just put a dish under the hole. The griddle is slightly slanted so the grease runs off.
The other thing I really, really like about my griddle is that it never burns pancakes. Set it to 325 and your pancakes will not burn -assuming you don’t leave them on five minutes.
These babies cook QUICK! Start to finish, I can get pancakes on the table in 15 minutes. And 12 minutes of that is making the batter cause we make them from scratch.
My pancake recipe (feeds two adults and two toddlers)
This is how we make pancakes every Saturday. Do the steps in order to minimize the screams of hungry children.
- Plug in griddle to 325.
- Cut 3 Tbsps of butter off the stick and place in a metal measuring cup. Place measuring cup on griddle to melt butter.
- Pour 1.5 cups of milk into a 2-cup measuring cup.
- Crack two eggs into the milk and stir. When butter is melted, stir it in.
Now grab a large mixing bowl for the dry ingredients.
- Add 1.5 cups flour.
- Add 3 Tbsp sugar.
- Add 1/2 tsp salt.
- Add 1 3/4 tsp baking powder.
Stir dry ingredients together, then all at once add in your milk-eggs-butter combo. Stir until just all the big flour lumps are gone. It’s ok to leave some of the small lumps as they will dissolve. If you stir too much, the pancakes will get tough. This recipe doubles nicely.
By this time, your griddle should be right at temperature, so pour 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle and put syrup on the table!

Our house holds parties all the time! We love hosting brunch! This griddle would be such a great presentation as guests can also partake in making pancakes. Paninis also!
Stephanie Phelps says
Oh my gosh this would be awesome to use with making quesadillas.
Emily Dudley says
I would love to win. The griddle would come in great on weekend morning making pancakes and bacon. I currently have two burners not working on my stove so it is hard to get the meals timed correctly. This would be great so I could make more than one at a time!
Pancakes, bacon and eggs? A perfect breakfast. A perfect meal, actually. I would use this for my weekly brunch.
Looks perfect for so many things! Luv Pancakes & Eggs!!
Calshondra Williams says
My family loves french toast and pancakes- it would be great to prepare a breakfast bar for them. Also, I would take it to work and do the same for my co-workers. I would love to win this awesome prize. Thanks for the chance and opportunity.
Great features – Fully immersible with heat control removed for easy cleaning & Legs fold for compact storage
I need this right now, my stove is not working, I don’t have a job and,
my husband and Son like to eat pancakes, it would be lovely to win.
Easy to use! I’d make buckwheat pancakes and many other things such as paninis, would love to have one, thanks!
Patrice H says
That griddle would be great given the downsizing of my family, so I only need to cook for a couple. And it would be perfect for cooking pancakes or French toast and bacon when we are camping.
Denise L says
This will help me cook more pancakes at once. Right now I do one at a time, which drives my husband crazy!
There is so many things I would make. I would attempt crepes. I would make old family recipes that would be wonderful on this. My family is expanding so it will come in very handy.
Patricia Kelley says
This Presto Griddle would be great if you live in a college dorm – My daughter says she would like to give this griddle a try; she loves grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers and french toast. This is a great devise to free up stove burners. Lastly, I plan on purchasing one for our home and RV.
Rich Weiss says
big enough to do a meal, rather than one at a time, trying to keep them warm
Love how it can make so many pancakes at once. And I love how it folds for storage.
This would be great! I love the idea of fold away legs for storage and fully submersible. With a family of 7 including 1 man and 4 teens I make mounds of pancakes. Total convenience. …..!!!
We eat cereals during the week for breakfast or brunch. We “splurge” on weekend and I make pancakes, French toast or ham & eggs for my family. This griddle would make it easier to make more at one time and we wouldn’t have to reheat in the microwave. Everything tastes so much better coming straight off the griddle!
We are a family of 6 and this would make my cooking duty so much easier. The kids would love it and not have to wait their turn for me to finish cooking 3 pancakes only at a time
This looks perfect for us! We are now trying to make do with a two-burner stove. How do you cook for a family of five on a two-burner stove? Answer: We eat in shifts. This looks sturdy enough to take on camping trips or scout outings – especially the part about how it doesn’t burn. Thanks for considering us.

This will help get breakfast made faster with the large cooking surface. Having the folding legs will help with storage. I would cook up eggs, sausage and pancakes.

I’ve always wanted a flat cooking grill. This would be convenient not just for pancakes, but anything that you would use a frying pan for.
I would love to have this griddle so that I could make more than one pancake at a time in a frying pan. I would also love to make grilled cheese sandwiches and crisp up leftover hash and hashbrowns.
It would be so fun to have for lots of great recipes…pancakes, French toast, hash browns…you name it.
This would be a nice griddle not only for pancakes and other breakfast items but grilled sandwiches!!!
My grandson is going to college in the fall and I am now is the process of teaching him how to make meals that will be easy but nutritious. He loves breakfast and this would be such a great griddle for him to take with him so he can make all his favorites.
Should have been ‘how to cook’. Sorry.
Rebecca C says
I am the worst with pancakes… maybe this is the solution! I’d try to make edible pancakes 🙂
My husband wanted one of these for Christmas, but I opted for electronics instead….regretted it ever since. He loves to make breakfast and for us to have that family time in the morning on the weekends before our day gets crazy busy. My children love to help him, even got my daughter an apron recently for this purpose. This griddle will help make memories!
This would help me make breakfast for my whole family a lot faster. I would make pancakes and sausage.
Fred Kleiman says
We have 3 young grandsons who sleep over often. They are difficult eaters. This griddle would be perfect to get them to eat pancakes or scrambled eggs. We could even use it to get them involved in the prep of breakfast.
Love the ease of clean- up most of all and that the legs fold up for storage. My kids like to make multi colored pancake designs. You fill a few plastic squeeze bottles with pancake batter and a bit of different food coloring in each . Then you just draw a picture or a different design. The surface of this griddle would be perfect for that.
Amy M says
We too make Saturday morning breakfasts! This would be a great addition to make pancakes and lots of them. I also would love to try and make eggs on the griddle. I have never tried that before. Thanks for the chance to win!
Its easy and effective and I adore pancakes more than any other breakfast!
I would use this to help cook big holiday and weekend meals. Looks great!
Wow, this griddle would be great to own. It gets tiring making round, after round, after round of pancakes or even grilled cheese for the family. I could make more in less time. Also the griddle would be super easy to clean and store away. Thanks for the giveaway.
I would use the Presto Griddle not only to make pancakes, eggs and bacon, but french toast, grilled sandwiches, and even to grill fish . I love the fact that it is slanted so the grease runs off and is not absorbed by the food. My oven has been on the fritz, so I have not been able to use it for a while, so the Presto Griddle would be a great addition to my kitchen.
It would be great to win this this grill. It looks easy to use, easy to clean up and easy to fold and store. Making breakfasts and other meals on it looks simple even for one not used to being in a kitchen. I would really love to win it so I can help my wife out in the kitchen.

Milian O says
This griddle would help us on our frequent trips. This would help increase our breakfast menu offerings for the kids instead of just cold cereal.
The way we go thru pancakes…eggs and bacon…i’ll enjoy cooking on this and the face that the legs fold away is awesome for storage…oh and cooking steaks…fried onions and peppers…and my tortillas will be in heaven…i go thru then alot
Beverly Cowan says
This Presto has so many great features all in one unit that it would be a pleasure to use.
In addition to NO BURN PANCAKES I would love it for Paninis, grilled cheese and toasted turkey sandwiches. Perfect for crepes and the list goes on______________________________.
alicia szemon says
This griddle will help me because i love cooking but sometimes it can be hard to cook on just regular pans. This is cool touch so there will be no worries burning yourself and sometimes i get a little clumsy(: I would use it to make lots of food! I am moving out soon so i need to get all the essentials for our new place(:
Patricia O says
My little nonstick skillet I use to make pancakes for the kids is tedious – I love cooking, but bend to the frozen pancakes more often than not. This would make life easier for us!
I like my Mom’s griddle so much. Having my own would simplify the cooking and clean up process on the weekend mornings before work.
I love that it is dishwasher safe! I would use it for frying eggs in the morning, and sometimes pancakes.
Mary Bilderback says
I would love to cook everything in one piece of equipment.
when I cook pancakes in one pan, bacon in the foreman grill
and eggs in a cast iron skillet, I get a BIG FAT MESS! YIKES!
I need this Presto 07050 Cool-Touch Foldaway Griddle. Thanks
BargainBabe for giving us a chance to win.
There is nothing better than a breakfast of freshly made pancakes and crispy bacon right off the griddle!
I would make healthy lower-carb pancakes on this awesome looking griddle, and it conveniently folds up for easy storage in my small kitchen!
OMG, this would be perfect with jost about everything i make. Would be a wonderful addition to my kitchen!
I’ve never had a pancake griddle and would love to win this. I have pancakes and bacon, at least, twice a month.
I would feel so blessed if i were to win this griddle! This looks like it can save me alot of time in the morning coming from a pretty big household, since im always on the go. Nothing better than to save time and make delicious meals that me and my family can enjoy . Yum !
I would use this for making French toast and grilled cheese sandwiches! Love how it folds for storage, so handy.
Wow! Yummy! this would help making breakfasts for my 5 hungry pancake loving kids!
nicole dz says
This griddle will help me cook multiple things at once and save me time in the kitchen, I would use it for pancakes, bacon, and even hot sandwiches.
I have a small kitchen and I see that I can fold and put away after cooking! I have to cook for me, my Dad and sister and nephew every morning and this would be so handy to make our eggs, bacon and hash browns on it instead of having to use so many frying pans! Thanks for this awesome opportunity to win this amazing griddle!
Mindy S says
I currently have a small skillet that I use for my family of four. However, their appetites are growing so an awesome griddle like this would be wonderful to have! I could actually make enough food to keep up with their stomachs. 🙂
This griddles would allow me to make several things at the same time without the mess. I would start off making bacon and eggs. But I’d also make pancakes and French Toast on it too.
I would make chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, quesadillas and grilled cheese sandwiches. This griddle looks awesome!
This would be ideal to use on the weekends for family breakfast time!
This griddle would be perfect for Sunday night family breakfast. Pancakes, bacon, eggs, french toast…the works.
my grill is broken so I would love to replace with a new one so I could cook some pancakes for my family.
i have friends over for brunch once a month, this would be perfect, and clean up would be a cinch.
I love pancakes and french toast! This griddle would be perfect.
Jessica Nemazee says
I can make pancakes and eggs at the same time! I’ll no longer need to two different frying pans!
I also love that it’s compact. Perfect for my tiny apt kitchen.
I’m curious to try making burgers with it too. Using my broiler just creates a big mess to cook two little patties.
