There's no better way to spend a weekend morning than digging into a stack of pancakes—unless, of course, you're the one who actually has to make them! Ree Drummond is so passionate about flapjacks that she's come up with tons of funpancake recipes, like pumpkin spice latte pancakes or hot cocoa pancakes. One kitchen tool that'll save you from standing over the stove all morning: a pancake griddle.

The best pancake griddles have larger surface areas than frying pans, which means you can quickly cook a batch big enough for the whole family. And because griddles are flat, you won't have any raised edges preventing that perfect pancake flip. Now that you know you need a griddle in your life, you can choose between an electric griddle and a stovetop griddle pan. Electric pancake griddles have the added benefit of super-even cooking, so you won't have to worry about tossing a few burnt flapjacks. Griddle pans are a good option if you're trying to make the most of a small kitchen; they cook using the heat from your stove. Bonus: Many griddle pans are dishwasher safe!

Don't make pancakes often? You can use your griddle to cook other breakfast foods like bacon, eggs, and hash browns, as well as grilled cheese sandwiches. Check out this list of the top electric griddles and griddle pans on the market and get flippin'!
