Weber jumped into the category earlier this year, with the release of a 28″ and 36″ griddle. It was pretty basic in design, but it gave them a griddle product.
We may see another griddle from Webber in the near future, as they’ve filed for a trademark for the name Slate. The word covers “cooking appliances, namely, griddles and flattop grills.”
It’s a logical name for a griddle because slate is a hard, flat surface, much like a griddle top. If it makes it to market, we’ll see if it’s a ground-up design to compete with other innovative griddles.
