abunda_amazon_reviews I purchased the griddle 2 months ago and love using it, however the igniter has stopped working and I cannot get anyone from Blackstone to contact me back. All I want is a new igniter to replace the bad one. Blackstone has horrible customer service to the tune of NONE! Apparently they do not stand behind their products because they never return your email...;;September 16, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;No customer services!;;Joey McCurry;;;Bought the 36” grill with the new rear grease trap. Arrived a day earlier than expected, box corners a little beat up but this thing is heavy. Excellent packaging so all is fine inside. I watched a utube unboxing video before it arrived and the assembly is as easy as described. The new design has the rear catcher in the center back and there is no grease trough. The right shelf has a Teflon cutting board insert (maybe 8x10), with hooks underneath to hang a trash bag. Also added an arm under the right shelf to slide on a roll of a per towels. Used it half a dozen times and just absolutely love it. It’s interactive cooking unlike the Weber and not discounting the value of the Weber at all. Also found that the blackstone spatulas will fit in hole punched for the rear grease trap and you can scape off the spatula crud. Unintended feature I believe. Not so good and holding the fifth star until resolved: -The right side of the griddle is bowed out at least 1/2 inch. It’s not damaged, it’s not warped, it’s bad workmanship. You can see how the corners were “massaged” around to make the weld so that tells me this is a manual step. QC should of caught this but for some reason didn’t. -Hanging a standard Blue Rhino tank, the knob holding the shelf in is too thick and does not allow the tank to sit in the bottom hanger. -A small ding on the front panel, from the backside. I contacted Blackstone and Annie quickly and politely responded within about 24 hours. I sent photos and they responded I would have to wait 6 weeks to get a new griddle top. New model, I get it, no problem. The bow does not effect function so I’m “cookin’ away”. She gave me a case number and said all the photos, etc, were attached to it so when I make contact in six weeks all should be good. No response yet on the tank hanger. I think they might dropped the ball on that one. Never mentioned the small ding to them, it’s no biggie. I wouldn’t care that much about the griddle but if I get a hard top cover there’s a chance it won’t fit, so that needs to be changed. Would be nice to have a small basket to hold the squeeze bottles. Also needs something to hang on the paper roll to keep it from unraveling in the wind.;;April 28, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;New rear drain model.;;sogle;;;Ok, I don't write very many reviews, but I will for this Blackstone griddle. I wanted to move away from my Weber Genesis propane grill as the innards of that grill required almost annual replacement (flavorizer bars and gas burners).. I spent 600 on it 10 years ago and probably another 500 on parts throughout the years. I had seen Blackstone grills (little ones) used in campgrounds and tailgates, thought they were pretty cool. I started looking into them and discovered they make all sizes of this which I was hoping for. I decided on the 36 inch size because amongst other uses I wanted to cook "hibachi style" and would need some room for the food. I received it in a few days.. the box was badly mangled, but the griddle as okay. It took an hour to put it together, no issues noted. It comes with the griddle (obviously) which is super heavy, but very stout. I worked in a diner when I was in school, this was very similar to that. You have to season it before using, again, no big deal takes 20 minutes. So now I have a huge work area, 4 temp zones (which is super nice to have) I bought the following accessories as well: 36 inch Grill (the griddle can be taken off and the grill be put in its place.. awesome! A metal grill cover (this is cool too because it keeps the grease from the griddle from getting all over the cloth cover (because it will) acts as a wind/spatter shield when hung on the back during cooking, and gives the griddle a kind of cover support if you keep it outside and it rains. Without it I could see the rain collecting on the cover in a puddle over the griddle. I also purchased the fabric cover, the cooking set with the meat press, spatulas and oil/water bottles (these were the Blackstone branded ones..I kinda didn't shop around for these if I did I could have saved 10 bucks or so just buying generic ones (but hey, I am showing this off to the neighbors, gotta have it all super deluxe) and a box of Scotch griddle cleaners (they should last me a long time). I have used this grill a dozen times in the last 30 days and I find no issues with it, it works great. We had breakfast last weekend for 6 people, bacon eggs to order, toast, etc all made on the grill and it was great. The best thing is, there are only a few things to clean up and it is way faster than cleaning up the mess in your kitchen after prepping the same type of breakfast. The bacon greased flowed into the grease cup with no problem, eggs didn't stick.. all good. I did get my hibachi on and cooked up some Teriyaki chicken and fried rice.. it was quick and fun. So the net of it all is, I have a super functional, large grill that can cook anything for way less (including all the accessories) than a replacement Weber. If you take care of it, it should last you a long time. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and would recommend.;;September 24, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This thing is awesome....;;Mark Mogge;;;For a family that cooks a lot this griddle has made our lives so much better. I know it sounds hokey but everything about this is great - quality is top notch and it just makes cooking easier. There is a huge amount a space so you can cook multiple things at the same time which means you can prep a meal faster. Also the cleanup is way way easier than dirtying up many pans on the stove and then having to clean them in the sink. With the Blackstone you just scrape it easily into the new catch at the back. The best part of the Blackstone is you can cook food you've not been able to before. The most fun was Japanese hibachi. It's so easy to do now and everyone loves it. We've made Philly cheesesteaks, bacon and pancakes, breakfast tacos, burgers and many others. My sons love cooking on it too! They think they're having fun but they're learning how to cook. It's great! Just buy one of these. I wish I knew about it sooner.;;December 31, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Just buy it!;;Michael B. Boese
