Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle Review

In our Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle review, we step you through the features of this compact unit that is one of the best small electric griddles you can buy.


The Presto 07211 Grill is a microcosm from their popular line of electric grills. It’s a convenient way to cook and keep all hot foods warm, reduce fat and oil consumption, and have less need to clean the pan afterward.

It features an 11 x 9-inch non-stick die-cast aluminum cooking surface and small table legs just over an inch or so with cool-touch handles and drip tray, and front-mounted temperature controls.

Despite its compact size, the Liddle Griddle is a full-featured electric grill with built-in drip tray and rotary thermostat to select and automatically maintain temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Liddle Griddle is a compact appliance that easily stows away in a closet (or gets ready without taking up too much space on the counter.) According to reviews, there’s enough grilling space to make breakfast for two. For larger quantities or batches of pancakes, you may want to consider a larger griddle.


About the Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle


Wow! This Presto 07211 Liddle Griddle mini griddle is the little griddle with a big heart and low price tag. We love that the master heat control automatically maintains the temperature, giving you that even grilling experience. It has, like most electric griddles these days, a handy built-in grease tray that makes it easier to clean.

This is a compact electric griddle, so it’s ideal for just one or two people. Its compact size makes it easy to store. You can also remove the heat-resistant leg-handle units for even more compact storage).

Cooking with the Presto Liddle Griddle

To give you an idea of its size and cooking area, the Liddle Griddle has an 8.5″ by 10.5″ inch cooking surface that will cook four fried eggs or two good-sized steaks.

It’s a perfect pancake griddle, too.

Coated with a slightly textured, durable nonstick finish, the Liddle Griddle is a healthier cooking choice because it requires very little grease. If you’re cooking fattier meats like bacon, the built-in channel along one end catches the fat drippings.

It maintains temperatures from warm to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to cook steaks. Because it’s made of cast aluminum, it resists warping and heat is distributed consistently for more even cooking.  This is something you’ll find a lot of reviewers agree on – the temperature control is spot on and there aren’t any cools spots on the surface.

You’ll find it’s very sturdy and stable on an even benchtop.

Easy clean griddle

You can remove the griddle’s heat control and fully submerge the unit in warm, soapy water to give it a good clean. How clever is that!?! You won’t have to worry about the ghosts of meals past haunting your lasting cooking creation on the Liddle Griddle.

While some people have reported success in the dishwasher, we don’t recommend it. Stick to warm soapy water in the sink. The dishwasher is a bit harsh and the process might damage the nonstick coating.

The tech specs

The 1000-watt griddle plugs into any 120-volt outlet. The griddle measures 14.75″ by 10″ by 2.5″. The Liddle Griddle is built to North American Electrical Standards.

There’s a red light that’s on while heating. There is no green light to say it’s ready to go.

The Presto Liddle Griddle is covered by a one-year warranty against defects.

Final Thought

Liddle Griddle makes for a cute and extremely compact electric grill, ideal for households of two. It will fit two slices of French toast on one side, leaving the other free to toast two eggs or make enough bacon for two. Or it will process two steaks side by side and heat them up to 400 degrees precisely measured to cook them to perfection.

The Presto Liddle grill is competitively priced but comes with a high-quality cooking surface that, according to buyers, can be cleaned easily and lasts long before the non-stick coating starts to fade. The side handles are a slightly cheaper design and some owners have had issues with them cracking or breaking. Looks like they might not be able to withstand damage due to randomization.
