Summary: Cook's Illustrated magazine includes the Cuisinart Griddler GR-4 (an older but almost identical model) in its roundup of electric griddles. Numerous owner reviews at Amazon.com, Cooking.com, Viewpoints.com and Epinions.com are also informative with respect to both the older GR-4 and newer GR-4N. The newer version has reversible plates instead of two separate sets of plates.
Pros: Versatile, Even cooking, Easy to clean, No need to store extra plates
Cons: Fussy thermostat control, Expensive, Plastic clips not durable
