Looking for a versatile kitchen appliance like a Cuisinart Griddler?
The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler is a kitchen appliance/indoor grill that can cook your food in different ways. It’s like having five appliances in one! You can use it as a contact grill, panini press, full griddle, half griddle, or oven. Plus, the floating hinge allows you to cook thicker foods without them sticking.
It’s not easy to cook a healthy meal for your family when you’re juggling the demands of work, kids, and other responsibilities.
The GR-4N has two cooking surfaces, which you can use to make breakfast for the whole family. You could grill chicken breasts or fish on the contact electric grill, and then flip it over onto the open grate to finish cooking with high heat from both sides. Or you could bake bacon-wrapped sausages on the open grate using indirect heat at any time of day. They’re perfect for feeding hungry kids before school or company arrives for brunch. And if you want to crisp up that leftover pizza, you can use the open contact grill for a quick job.
With this one appliance, you can make anything from pancakes and bacon to chicken breasts and steak. It’s also easy to clean – just wipe it down with a damp cloth when you’re done cooking. Stop using multiple appliances to cook your food – get the Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler.

Parts and Features
The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler has a lot of great features that make it stand out from other griddles on the market. The base and cover are made out of solid construction with stainless steel, and the panini-style handle is sturdy and made out of cast metal. The cooking plates are also nonstick and dishwasher safe, which makes for easy cleanup. The controls are very user-friendly, with indicator lights that signal when the grill or griddle is ready to cook. The selector switch also allows you to choose between the grill/panini function or the griddle function. Lastly, the amazing drip pan collects grease and can be easily removed from the base for dishwasher cleaning.
The reversible cooking plates are one of the most important features of the Griddler. They are dishwasher safe, reversible, and have a nonstick coating. This makes them easy to clean and prevents them from sticking to food. The floating cover also helps to keep food from sticking.
The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler comes with a handy integrated drip tray that collects any grease or fat that may drip off the grill plates. This makes for a healthier cooking experience, and also makes it easy to clean up afterward. The huge grease drip drain tray is removable for easy cleaning and can be washed in the dishwasher.
The Griddler can be unplugged from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. The plates, drip tray, and cleaning tool are dishwasher safe. The scraping tool can be used for cleaning both the grill and griddle sides of the plates after you have finished cooking and the unit has cooled down completely. The housing base, cover, and control knobs can be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth; for tough stains, use a damp cloth.

Unfortunately, the Cuisinart GR-4N does not come with waffle plates, but you can purchase extra waffle plates that are compatible with the GR-4N model to cook waffles.

Five Separate Cooking Functions
The GR-4N’s contact grill mode will have your family coming back for more. This versatile appliance can do so much more than just make pancakes and eggs! The contact grill function works best when you want to cook something in a short amount of time or when you are looking for a healthy method of grilling. When cooked on the contact grill, food will cook quickly because you are grilling both sides of the food at the same time. The ribs on the grill side of the plates, combined with the grease spout at the rear of the plate, allow all excess fat to drain from meat and off into a pan underneath it. When using as a Contact Grill, make sure to place the Spacer in between the grill and griddle plates so there is a consistent space in-between the plates. This will ensure even cooking when using both plates at once.
The Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler can be used as a Full Grill to cook burgers, steak, poultry, fish, and vegetables. When using the Griddler as a Full Grill, the grill side of the plates should be used. The Full Grill offers double the surface area (200 sq. inches) for grilling and is the most versatile way to use the Griddler. With the Full Grill, you have the option of cooking different types of foods on separate plates without combining their flavors or cooking large amounts of the same type of food. Use the Full Grill to easily add grill marks, grill steaks, or other proteins with ease.
When using the Griddler as a Full Griddle, you’ll want to open the cover so it lies flat. This will create a double, flat cooking surface. In this position, the foods you are preparing will have to be turned over for cooking. When using this cooking function, the griddle side of the plates should be used. Cooking on the Full Griddle is a wonderful way to prepare breakfast for two or for a large family, such as pancakes, eggs, French toast, hash browns, and breakfast meats. The large surface area allows you to cook a variety of different foods at the same time or large amounts of your favorite food.
Half Grill and Half Griddle
When using the Griddler as a Half Grill/Half Griddle, you can cook full meals at the same time. This cooking option is great for bacon and eggs, steak and potatoes, or any other combination of food items. You can use either the grill/panini temperature or the griddle temperature selector, depending on what you’re cooking.
The Panini Press on the Cuisinart GR-4N is a great feature. You can use it to grill sandwiches, bread, and quesadillas. It’s perfect for making savory or sweet sandwiches for any meal. I recommend using fresh-baked bread to produce the best-tasting panini. When the Griddler is used as a Panini Press, the grill side of the plates is recommended. You can apply light pressure to the sturdy Panini-style handle to press and heat the sandwich to your liking. The Panini Press is a great mode for cooking grilled cheese sandwiches.

The removable and reversible 11″ x 9″ dishwasher-safe nonstick cooking plates are great for draining grease and healthy cooking. The GR-5b is also a great option, but it has some differences.

It also comes with user-friendly digital controls, adjustable temperatures from 175 to 450 degrees, and removable and reversible dishwasher-safe nonstick cooking plates for quick cleaning.
