[quote]They aren't exclusively the same. I got a refund check this year. The IRS also didn't send back an additional $20,000 that I had paid in. Paying isn't complicated not does it mean you're going to get interest and penalties (there are no fines).[/quote]

The Cuisinart griddler has a slightly sloped surface and a little pan in the bottom to catch excess grease. The surface will still be greasy, but not the puddle of grease you'll find in a pan.
I usually only cook a few slices for myself in the morning, but when cooking more than that you just ha...
