Cuisinart GR-150 Griddler Deluxe
Take Meals to New Heights
The Cuisinart Griddler Deluxe takes grilling to new heights! It offers six enticing cooking options. The reversible grill and griddle plates, combined with dual-zone temperature control, give home chefs complete control. This grill is perfect for making pancakes and eggs for breakfast, panini and open-faced sandwiches for lunch, and burgers or fajitas for dinner. The extra-large grilling surface is ideal for entertaining a crowd or making family meals. The new SearBlast feature locks in the flavor of steaks. With dishwasher-safe accessories, an elegant new look, and 1800 watts of power, deluxe is an understatement.
Six Ways to Cook: 240 square inches of cooking surface handle big orders of bacon and eggs, panini sandwiches, seared filets, and sautéed vegetables.
Enough Power to Sear: 1800 watts of power and 500°F max plate temperatures let you sear meats, fish, and poultry. The 2-minute SearBlast feature locks in flavors.
DuoControl Heating Advantage: Independent temperature controls let you warm tortillas on one plate while sautéing chicken and veggies on the other. Makes combination cooking easier than ever.
Adjustable Top Cover for More Cooking Options: The top cover “floats” for classic contact grilling and manually adjusts to 6 different heights to top-melt. Perfect for open-faced sandwiches and grilled pizzas.

Griddler Deluxe Positions
Storage Position: Upper plate/cover rests flat on the lower plate/base and cover height adjuster is in Lock position.
Preheat Position: Upper plate/cover rests flat on the lower plate/base and cover height adjuster is in Unlock position.
Open Cooking Position: To cook on lower plate only: Lift the handle so upper plate/cover is vertical. Plate does not “float” in this position.
Closed Cooking Position: To Contact Grill or Panini Press: Start with unit in Open Cooking position. Lower top carefully until plate contacts food. Hinge will automatically release the plate, allowing it to “float” and rest evenly on food. If necessary, press down slightly on front of upper plate/cover wearing oven mitt to release hinge. To Top Melt: Start with unit in Open Cooking position. Wearing an oven mitt, press down slightly on front of upper plate/cover to release hinge, allowing plate to “float.” Lower it to close to the desired height, then slide the cover height adjuster into a notch to set the position.
Flat Cooking Position: To cook on Full Grill, Full Griddle or Half Grill/Half Griddle: Upper plate/cover opens to lie flat, level with the lower plate/base.
Operating the Griddler Deluxe
- Make sure the Griddler Deluxe is in the PREHEAT position. It is recommended you preheat with grill in the closed position.
- Turn the UPPER PLATE and/or LOWER PLATE temperature to the desired setting – from Warm to 450°F.
- A red indicator light on the selected control will illuminate to indicate that the power is on. It may take up to 12 minutes to reach operating temperature, depending on the temperature level that was set. NOTE: The first time you use the Griddler Deluxe, it may have a slight odor and may smoke a bit. This is normal and common to appliances with nonstick surfaces.
- When the thermostat has reached operating temperature, a green indicator light inside the chosen control will indicate that the Griddler Deluxe is ready for cooking.
- You may vary the setting of the control knob at any time during cooking.
- To turn the plate(s) off, simply turn the temperature dial(s) to the OFF position. NOTE: If the unit is on and heated for more than 2 hours, it will automatically shut off. This is a safety feature of the Griddler Deluxe. To reactivate, simply turn either dial.
