Anybody have any experience good/bad/indifferent with the 17" Table Top griddle?
Looks like it would be perfect for camping at the lake.
Would only be feeding a couple folks and mainly used for breakfasts (bacon/eggs/pancakes etc) and sure looks easier than multiple dirty frying pans etc.

We love ours and currently it in the kitchen counter .I offered to take it back to the garage and the wife said no . We open the window for ventilation .
 
I thought I’d share some things I’ve cooked on my Blackstone. One thing I will say is you need a lot of counter space close to where you’re cooking. I keep mine in the garage and it’s challenging when cooking a lot of items. Sometimes if I’m cooking by myself I will set up a little card table to set everything on while I’m cooking. My only gripe about mine all the grease doesn’t run into the catch pan. A lot of it drips onto the floor. I ordered a clip on thingy off Amazon and it didn’t fit mine. Never got around to returning it so who knows where it even is now. Anyway, I put a little stick through the drain hole down into the catch pan and that helps but it still gets on the floor.

How do you do your hashbrowns? Love them and need to get it figured out
I don't know how GD44 does his, besides making them look absolutley delicious, But there's how I make mine:

Boil your taters for about five minutes, then turn the heat off and let them sit in the hot water about ten more minutes. Then grate them up. Cook them pretty hot, with a good bit of oil or bacon grease.

I've never made them from scratch like NCH does them.. I buy either frozen shredded hash brown potatoes or lately I've been using dehydrated ones that come in a box. I had a guy give me a case of then. Each box is like 5 lbs. I soak the dry ones for about 1/2 an hour or thaw the frozen ones. All I do is put them in piles on the griddle with olive oil. Let them get good and brown on one side before you flip them over.

I had to beat mine on with a hammer...come to find out that's what they recommend doing to get those clips on. I also have a large bowl on the floor to catch anything else. It's easier to clean up and still doesn't get in the way when I am cooking. They have a new wrap around table on Amazon that you can get for 36 inch blackstones as well that attaches to the top of the griddle and makes a table for you to work from. Just a couple of thoughts....love my Blackstone to death!!

The clip I ordered was to big. Believe me, I'm an expert and banging on things until they fit! lol I am going to check out that wrap around thing for sure! thanks for sharing that!

I have never had any problem with the grease not hitting the drip pan with mine. The only problem I've had with mine at all is the grease not wanting to drain down to the end fast enough, I usually have to push it toward the drip pan with a spatula.
