5 Great Gas Griddles

5 Great Gas Griddles

A flattop gas griddle is the pathway to outdoor cooking versatility and delicious meals. From searing meat, fish or vegetables, to frying eggs or making pancakes, griddles have a fantastic way of locking in all those juicy flavors because the flat surface keeps them from dripping into grill gates to be lost forever. Gas griddles are known for their cooking prowess and adaptability, despite having a rather basic design: of a flat steel surface atop gas burners. (Not too surprising.) However, some manufacturers are innovating new ways to enhance the user experience from “good” to “amazing”. Check out our picks.

Blackstone Original 22-Inch Tabletop Griddle

Powered by two robust stainless-steel H-burners, The Blackstone Tabletop Griddle delivers 24,000 BTUs of cooking power evenly across the durable surface, allowing for consistent heat distribution. You can establish two separate temperature zones for cooking different foods simultaneously! Enhanced control knobs on the front stainless-steel panel simplify temperature adjustments and facilitate quick grilling with straightforward piezo ignition. Included is a hood to shield the griddle from dirt, damage, and weather elements, which attaches securely to the rear and easily lifts away during cooking.

Weber GP22 Portable 22-Inch Propane Griddle

Reaching temperatures exceeding 500 degrees Fahrenheit and ensuring even heating from edge to edge, this griddle guarantees consistent cooking regardless of food placement. Pancakes have found their perfect canvas. Prepare a batch of batter and pour it directly onto the griddle for flawless results. Equipped with four adjustable feet for stability on uneven surfaces and the possibility to add an expandable stand, the Weber Traveler Portable Griddle is an ideal companion for on-the-go moments.

Pit Boss 4-Burner Gas Griddle

Enjoy 753 square inches of cooking space to prep everything from breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and with four powerful stainless steel gas burners pumping out a total of 62,000 BTUs.  The Pit Boss Deluxe Griddle is well within its right to claim it as bigger, hotter, and heavier than others on the market. The griddle surface is 4.7mm thick and it also comes with a sturdy lid for protecting the griddle surface between cooks, which doubles as a windscreen. Folding legs offer a handy fold-and-go design; however, this unit does weigh a hefty 155 pounds so use discretion when placing it in the grilling spot.

Royal Gourmet Portable 24-Inch 3-Burner Tabletop Gas Griddle

With sturdy feet for enhanced stability, this tabletop grill is perfect for small outdoor cooking events, fueled by a 20 lb. propane tank. An integrated piezo ignitor provides instant startup by the simple push of a button, powering the three separately controlled burners to heat up very fast. The Royal Gourmet boasts quick assembly and no-fuss cleanup, so rest assured you can leave all the complexities at home—there’s a removable, slide-out grease cup to collect oil residue while cooking, and the griddle top itself is detachable for washing.

Blaze’s Premium LTE freestanding griddle elevates outdoor gatherings to new heights during the day and even when the sun goes down, featuring distinctive SRL LED control knob lighting. Simply push and turn the igniter for a steady, reliable flame and you’re good to go! This grill includes dual-door storage space for keeping grilling essentials organized, along with an integrated paper towel holder for added convenience, and it moves around easily on heavy duty casters so you can position in anywhere you want on the patio.
