We imagine the first form of the modern day griddle was just a flat rock sitting in a fire pit; perhaps even cavemen sitting around the fire, ready to crack open some Pterodactyl eggs for morning breakfast. That said, griddles today haven’t really come that far from those early days. These handy kitchen tools are still, essentially, just a flat surface on which you can sizzle up something scrumptious. Granted, a few improvements have been made to accommodate evolving tastes and make the griddle a little more versatile, the cooking method is still the same. Whether you’re uncovering your inner caveman or practicing your latest griddling techniques, having reliable griddles in your kitchen kit is a must.
