If you have a Blackstone griddle then chances are that you love it and want to go the extra mile to take care of it and have a little more fun using it. That’s where this article comes into play as we look at the best tops, covers and accessories available for the different griddle sizes!
Blackstone Griddle Accessories
Here are a few extras that will let you have some more fun with your griddle regardless of which size you currently own.
Essential Griddle Gear
This is that starter pack that everyone needs. The Blackstone kit comes with two spatulas, two squirt bottles and a griddle scraper. Here is a closer look at what you get with the Blackstone kit 🙂
Other companies offer similar kits that are sometime cheaper or have more items and I have included a few of them in the links below in case you are interested.
The Blackstone breakfast bundle comes with a pancake batter dispenser, bacon press and two egg rings. Griddles are the perfect tools for cooking breakfast. Hash browns, omelets, sausage, bacon, pancakes…Man, I am getting hungry just thinking about it!
I have added links to the Blackstone kit as well as the equivalent of each product individually from other companies in the links below.
Here are a few items that ought to go along with every griddle.
Melting Dome: You use the dome to hold in heat and direct it to help cook the top of your food. This comes in handy for melting the cheese on your burger or your Philly cheese steak. You can also squirt a little water under the dome and use it to steam your veggies.
Salt and Pepper Dredges: These are not essential but they sure look good sitting by your griddle. It is nice to have a set of salt and pepper shakers dedicated for your griddle so you don’t have to keep taking them in and out from the kitchen. You will use the heck out of these.
Deck Splatter Mat: When you are cooking bacon, burgers or other greasy items you are going to get some splatter on your deck. Having the deck mat is going to be a lifesaver when it comes to keeping your deck clean.
Grill Light: Using your griddle at night can be challenging if you don’t have a good light source. This light clamps onto the side of your griddle and can be pointed exactly where you need it!
Blackstone Griddle Tops and Covers (17, 22, 28 and 36 Inch)
Tops and covers are two very different items and you will want to get both for your griddle. A “top” is a hard lid that goes on the griddle surface. The top will prevent your cover from either melting on a griddle that is too warm or getting filthy when it sags down onto the greasy surface.
An extra benefit of buying a top for the 28 and 36 inch griddle is that they can hang from the back of the griddle when it is is use and help stop the wind from causing burner problems on windy days.
Here are the links to buy the different top sizes for your griddle.
While tops are very useful they are not water tight and only offer limited protection for your griddle. To really take care of the griddle you are going to want to get a cover.
Here are the links to buy the different size covers for your griddle. Hmmm….it looks like Blackstone will not let me create a link to the cover for the 36 inch cover on Amazon. I included the 36 inch griddle cover from Yukon Glory instead. It is just as nice as the Blackstone cover and comes with a set of griddle tools.
