Do Griddles Have To Be Stainless Steel?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I want to get a stove top griddle, seems to be this diner culture and people in love with stainless griddles, is a griddle just a griddle? does it matter cast iron, non-stick, stainless???? I understand cast iron would have more heat retention etc, but beyond the obvious, is there a real need for a griddle to be stainless? Thank You.

Cast iron and let a carbon patina build there.

Nonstick will wear out, quickly, with regular use- not sure I've ever seen one

A friend of mine is nuts about pancakes. She swears by her aluminum griddle. She makes LOTS of pancakes.

I was almost afraid to confess, but since you mentioned it... I have a two-sided non-stick aluminum grille/grill. The nonstick isn't that great but it has lasted a long time and the grill/griddle has given great service for about 15 years But for pancakes I still prefer my Grams old round cast iron griddle. For some reason pancakes taste better made on that old griddle than when cooked on anything else.
