Hamilton Beach 38546 Review

Pros & Cons: Like any other product, this one has it's pros and cons as well. Here are some of the biggest I could find: 1. A very functional design, perfect for a small household. 2. Easy cleaning. Once you are done, just snap the cooking plates out of the base. Plus, it's dishwasher safe. 3. Separate heat controls. You can save energy by using only half of the griddle or grill. Perfect for when you are preparing foods that require different temperatures. 1. “Non-stick” surface isn't all that “non-sticky” at all as food can still stick to it. The directions even tell you to spray some non-stick cooking spray on it. What, on a supposedly non-stick surface? 2. Watch your fingers with this one! The cooking plates are designed nicely, but it's very easy to snap your fingers in the beginning. Just warning you to be a little careful until you figure it all out. 3. Surface doesn't get hot enough to cook some things. Or at least not as fast as I would like. 4. It needs too much storage space.

Made by Hamilton Beach, this is a 3-in-1 grill/girdle or that allows you to use the product as a full grill, full griddle or as a half grill and half griddle at the same time. This means you can cook or fry anything from bacon and eggs to a hamburger or a steak on it with real ease.

Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 grill/griddle has 180 square inches of cooking surface and you can use it as either a grill, a griddle or as both at the same time. Due to this, it provides more than enough space to prepare a wide range and variety of different foods you like.


This grill/griddle has two fully adjustable temp controls and allows you to remove grease from the cooking surface with extreme ease. The removable grease tray can be put into a dishwasher without any worries, while the grids are non-stick and can also be washed in a dishwasher.

It has 23 inches in width, with 12,5 inches in height and a depth of 6-3/4 inches in depth. Warranty for this grill/griddle will last you one year, while you also get a one-year warranty on all the parts. Not including the main grill/griddle, you also get the grease tray and the removable grids together with it.


This 3-in-1 product can certainly make preparing some meals much easier and it's surface allows you to prepare several meals at once. Since the surface is non-stick, and the removables are safe to put into a dishwasher, you won't have much trouble with cleaning it (if you ever had to clean a grill, you know how much of a hassle that is). The product is certainly not perfect (a little more about that later on), but it certainly is very good and eases cooking a lot. Personally, I would give it a solid 4 on a scale to 5.
