    I got one of these and tried it out this past weekend. It is now my favorite way to cook at camp. Cooked for a family of 5 easily with the 17". There is a larger one that is 22". The 17" was pretty heavy already, so I think the 22" would be cumbersome to store during travel. The griddle itself is pretty thick gauge steel.

    Downside is that it uses the 1lb propane bottles and goes through them quickly. There is an adapter and hose that you can buy from a company so it works on RV low pressure quick connect, which I ordered after the camping trip.

    All you need to do is find one for her to try, she'll fall in love with it. I have the 17" model that stays in the pup, & then we have the 28" model for family gatherings.....don't know how we ever got along without it, we can cook a BUNCH of food at one time....lol. There's even a 36" model for BIG gatherings.

    She would be getting it for me, she does not do any cooking we we go camping she leaves that up to me. We always camp with water and electric hookups and I just use my electric griddle. But I still want one, one of these days.

    It goes together in just a few minutes, you can get bags for the grill and legs.
    Handy because if I'm camping out of the car it's pretty easy to just take with you.

    I know a few guys in the south west who see something like this for sale at flea markets for around $50.
    But I didn't have time to drive to NM, so I just ordered this one :D

    We have been looking @ the Blackstone. In the past 30 days they have gone from $62 up to $95. then down to $80, then up to $105. It's hard to want to spend money on something when someone is just looking to fleece you.

    We lucked up on a 22" one at Walmart. It came with folding legs, a folding lid, and a little side table attached. We love it and plan to use it camping as well as at home. I don't think Blackstone offers that model any longer. I love that the lid folds down to keep the cooking griddle clean.

    These griddles look awesome. I want one. Not for camping, FOR MY BACK DECK. This would be the bomb.

    I love mine. Used an electric before but the blackstone is much better.
