Description

As outdoor enthusiasts and founders of BLACKSTONE we dreamed of a quality outdoor griddle and/or grill that could cook for large groups and families. In 2005 we made our vision a reality by creating BLACKSTONE PRODUCTS. We then launched the 36” BLACKSTONE griddle that is still popular for backyard cooking and which brings families and friends together for fun and food. Our spectrum of gas griddles and gas grills are popular for backyard living, a BBQ, recreational cooking or commercial grade cooking. Since then, the company has expanded dramatically and created a brand new look as well as a large new line of durable rugged innovative and portable cooking innovations including an outdoor pizza oven and the ever so easy to transport and set-up DASH – and our products will last a lifetime. By using the latest technologies available and complementing them with our own innovations, we feel we have the leading edge on the market in our categories. Our products are designed and engineered in the USA by people who are avid users and live to entertain outside – at home, in the tailgater parking lot or just about anywhere. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and how well they function while keeping the prices very affordable. We have assembled a strong and enthusiastic team with the utmost passion for BLACKSTONE and outdoor cooking including excellent engineers, intelligent industrial designers and uniquely creative graphic artists. We have the capability to make any adjustments to our current lines or create new units all together, tailored around your needs in a very short time in contrast to our larger entrenched old-school competitors. So look forward to future innovations from BLACKSTONE sooner than later. We are more than just another outdoor cooking appliance company that only focuses on the numbers and overlooks the end users by neglecting quality or deferring to accountants. We are here to stay and hope you enjoy BLACKSTONE products as much as we do.

abunda_amazon_reviews Bought this for my Dad and this is his review. Assembly seemed simple enough until one of the bolts for the lower tray and tank hanger did not line up with the pre-drilled hole. Had to drill a new hole that was aligned properly. Attached propane tank and discovered that the electronic igniter did not work. Consulted the Blackstone troubleshooting website and followed all instructions regarding igniter failure --- nothing worked. Finally lit the griddle with a match and discovered that the right hand burner only ignited on one side of the "H". Tried several times with match and couldn't get it to light. Spent several hours trying to reach Blackstone customer support and only got a recording that said they were experiencing a large volume of calls. In desperation, I called Amazon and they offered to send me a replacement burner and igniter with no charge. Amazon Customer Service rocks and Blackstone could take some lessons from them. In brief --- griddle seems well made, but quality control leaves much to be desired. FOLLOW UP: Replacement parts arrived and they do no match the parts on my griddle. Tried many many many times to reach customer support at Blackstone and got the same recorded message over and over. In desperation I called Amazon once again and they also tried to reach Blackstone on a "priority" number ... but no response. Amazon agreed to refund my purchase price and have UPS pick up the already assembled griddle. Once again, Amazon comes thru and Blackstone loses a customer. If you are considering the purchase of one of these griddles, keep in mind that once it is delivered, you will NEVER be able to contact Blackstone if anything is wrong with it. Horrible way to run a company.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Blackstone quality control falls flat - Customer Support non-existent;;divinemissem;;;So I FINALLY got around to ordering this griddle and I gotta say 'm glad I did! This thing is amazing! You can cook anything from pancakes to burgers on it and there is plenty of room on it (28 inch model) to cook for a large family. I cooked a dozen burgers on it and had room for at least 8 more. The one concern I had was the grease drainage issue that others have had. I looked at several grease mods and decided I would try one of those. However it appears Blackstone has tried another way to help this situation. In the pictures I have attached you can see the changes Blackstone has made. First off there is no longer a "drain hole", second they added a welded "knob" on the bottom of the drainage tunnel at the end, and last (see pictures) they angled the drain channel upwards so that it doesn't automatically drain into the drain pan. Basically you will get some grease built up in the grease channel and all you gotta do is use a couple paper towels on some tongs and push the grease down the channel into the drain pan. This has worked well for me so far and I didn't have any issues with grease going down the front leg of the griddle. I do wish that Blackstone would have just put a drain funnel tip at the end of the channel that pushed the grease towards the drain pan, but what they did will also work fine. I have cooked three times on it so far and didn't have any issues with grease building up in the channel to the point I had to clean it before being done cooking. What I did was just push it down the channel into the pan when I was cleaning my griddle after cooking.

With the Blackstone 28" griddle/grill I feel my search is over. I thought the 28" model might be a bit small but it's easily big enough for a family of 4 with room to spare. Having seasoned the griddle/grill I've only had time to use it a few times but have to admit I am more than impressed with it. The cook is even with great temp control One a very windy day (gust to 25mph) with it set on medium-high the surface temp was within 35 degrees edge to edge. I was a little concerned when I ordered it as I was going for the 36" three burner model thinking the temp would be more even temp but my fears were laid to rest as soon as it heated up. The only other concern I had was the steel warping but Blackstone is using a high-grade well-tempered steel as there were no signs of warping at any temp. I had read in many reviews that oil ran down the leg from the drip rail but Blackstone has fixed that as even though my patio floor tilts slightly left the oil still drips into the oil cup. I ordered the Blackstone "package" when ordering my griddle/grill and had mixed results there.
