Flat Top Grill Benefits
Hot Cooking Surface - The flat surface on an outdoor flat top griddle is very hot and the temperature is evenly distributed, across the surface.
Low Smoke - Smoke is minimal because there is no grease dropping into the burners like with a gas grill. The grease drips into a pan underneath which is convenient for cleanup.
Versatility - Natural gas and propane griddles are great for all types of food including seafood, steaks, vegetables, and even fried rice. For added versatility add pots and pans to cook soups and side dishes.
Cook In Zones - You can cook multiple foods at the same time - scramble eggs on one side while you grilling steaks or bacon on the other.
Healthy Cooking - Because minimal oil is required, fat is reduced. Most foods cook in their own juices.
Get Social! - Flat top grills are great for outdoor gatherings because you can get the entire group around the grill to contribute to tepppenyaki-style cooking.

Are gas griddles any good?
You bet! Griddles are different from grills, in that they don't provide an open flame. However, they offer excellent searing capabilities and a very versatile cooking surface that can easily be divided into zones.
Is cooking on a gas griddle healthy?
