Getting your Blackstone griddle set up on your back porch can be exciting and disappointing at the same time. The good news is you’ve got the makings of hundreds of tasty meals in front of you. The bad news? You need some Blackstone griddle accessories to help you prepare those meals.
If you’re looking for a list of must-have Blackstone griddle accessories, you’ve found it! We also offer a list of 10 things to know before buying a Blackstone griddle. Since you’ve made that purchasing decision already, let’s see how you can outfit your Blackstone griddle to make almost any dish. With the right pairing of accessories, there’s no telling what you’ll cook up next.
Whether you choose a hard or fabric variant, buying a griddle cover can help protect your investment. Most fabric covers enclose the griddle, while hard covers attach to the griddle top. In addition to preserving the griddle surface, griddle covers can prevent rust and keep out the little critters.
Seasoning your griddle is one of the most challenging but essential steps in owning a griddle. With the griddle seasoning and cast iron conditioner, you get a two-in-one product that protects your griddle and tempers the cast iron to keep it like new.
You can use this conditioner before and after each use, whether you choose one of the 25 best Blackstone recipes we recommend or whip up something of your own.
One-size-fits-all (or most) silicone gloves keep the heat away from your fingertips until it’s time to chow down. Blackstone griddle gloves are a must-have, especially if you want to get your hands dirty. Griddle gloves typically have a textured grip, can withstand up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and incorporate loops to hang them on your griddle once you’re finished.
What’s a griddle without a spatula to work it? Any starter griddle spatula kit should have a variety of spatulas, from long and thin variants to those with a broader base. Many spatula sets also come with a squeeze bottle that holds enough oil or water to keep your griddle clean as you cook. A pair of tongs can also help with more delicate foods or any of these 25 Blackstone chicken recipes you’ve just got to try.
Storage on a griddle may seem counterintuitive, but having a magnetic holder with all your accessories can make a difference when the griddle is hot and you’re slinging food. Magnetic attachment mechanisms (i.e., magnets) make it easy to stick this accessories holder where you want it. At over four inches deep, it’s also stout enough to hold everything from squeeze bottles to spatulas and spice dredgers.
Assemble a tool bag for your Blackstone griddle with the griddle caddy, a dynamic and durable carry-all that anticipates your every griddling need. This griddle caddy incorporates space for gloves, spatulas, paper towels, and more.
There’s a spice pocket for seasonings, 360-degree webbing, and a watertight base, so you don’t have to worry about where you place it. You can also remove the handle for quick access to your must-have accessories.
Spatulas are good for flipping and serving, but a griddle scoop makes the job much easier. With a griddle scoop, you can pick up every last bit of that tasty batch of scrambled eggs, rice, potatoes, or ground meat in one fell swoop. The scoop is also dishwasher-safe.
Disposable liners are a must-have if you want to turn clean-up time into two minutes of wiping down the griddle. These liners fit into the Blackstone grease trap and retain every bit of extra grease that flows their way. You can easily remove and replace these liners to prepare for your next griddling session.
Many people think of juicy steaks when they picture a griddle, but a quality hamburger can please many a stomach any day. If you like hamburgers, the hamburger tool kit is a must-have. The kit features a heavy-duty spatula, a burger tool, and a spice dredge.
Together, you’ve got the makings of a juicy hamburger that rivals any smashed burger you’ve had. If you want a recipe to try with your new hamburger tool kit, check out our favorite, Turkey Salsa Cheese Stuffed Burgers. They’re a healthy, new way to enjoy a burger.
Do you want to conquer breakfast to take on whatever the day holds? Look no further than the pancake breakfast kit, a must-have accessory if you own a Blackstone griddle. This kit comes with a bacon press, a batter dispenser, and a couple of egg rings. They’re the perfect start if you want to make some recipes we’ve gathered in our 26 hearty Blackstone breakfast ideas post.
You don’t need a griddle to melt cheese, but you do need a basting cover. Round basting covers also make steaming vegetables easier, so you can add a healthy element to your next dish. This basting cover is dishwasher safe, made from durable stainless steel, and features a heat-resistant handle to protect you as you griddle.
12. Butter Wheel
If you don’t already know what a butter wheel is, you’re welcome. This gadget makes buttering buns and rolls a breeze because griddling burgers isn’t complete without a buttery bun to top it off (literally). You can place this butter wheel directly on the griddle and use it to apply butter to practically anything you want.
