Bought this for a family gathering. Works great for sliders MyBest.Kitchen cooking evenly. Shrimp was hit. The pieces wash up perfect in dishwasher. Hope to order the waffle section for Christmas.

If you've ever worked in a restaurant you'll know all of these are basically a joke. There is nothing here that you wouldn't do with a 12 inch skillet or two. On half of these your stuff will be swimming in grease that will be dangerous to drain, the other half will be overflowing onto the stove. The aluminum ones are too light and are easy to push around trying to move steaks, and there's no way to grab on to stabilize them. The handles and raised edges are just obstacles that are going to get in your way for flipping. You can't scrape on half of these with real metal utensils so you're stuck trying to sear steaks and fry rice with melty plastic tools. Not fun.

Steelmade makes a stainless flat top that's 24"x30", covers an entire stovetop, impervious to metal utensils and metal scouring pads, and has a grease drain. If you have a 5 burner stove this is absolutely the way to go in terms of cooking space, even heating, wear resistance, ease of cleaning, and keeping the cooking process as close to an actual piece of commercial equipment as possible. And it's less expensive than some of the little things they tested here.

Hello thank you for sharing this tutorial. I recently purchased a GE profile 30 convection that has the dual burner sync mode option. I have yet to use it primarily because I am not sure type of tray I need to use as well as size. It’s a glass top surface. Could you suggest the kind of tray I would need? Thank you.
