- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This griddle works great! It doesn't fit very well on my Camp Chef Everest 2 burner stove very well but, I make it work. The non-stick coating is clutch and none of my food has had a problem sticking. I wish the collection channel was a bit bigger but it really isn't that big of deal. My food cooks super quickly on this thing. Definitely be aware that your food will cook a lot quicker on the ends where it's directly over the burners and not as quickly in the middle. Overall i'm happy with this product!

This is easy to throw into the car for car camping, cleans easily, and cooks evenly. It's great for burgers, where the grease will run down the sloped slides into the grease trap. It's not great for scrambling eggs, and as they will want to slide into the great trap as well.
Good, but choose carefully
A very good griddle but it doesn't rest stable on a Camp Chef C-Oven stovetop (CampChef's stove-oven combo). The grease gutter around the perimeter contacts the grate at the side handles only, allowing the griddle to rock. I gave it to my sister for her to use on her Coleman 2-burner.
This griddle is great for making pancakes, and though I haven't had a chance to yet, I think it will be good for grilling meats as well. I have tried to cook eggs on it like a flat top, but it's a bit tricky, especially for scrampled. The sloped sides that help the grease drip off make the eggs tricky to control. It's been a nice addition to my car camping setup.
GSI Outdoor Bugaboo Griddle
We bought this for our next car-camping trip, but decided to use it at home instead of an old beat-up one we had be grilling on. Great for home or camping!
This is a great griddle, perfectly lightweigt and plenty compact. It distributes heat evenly and the non-stick surface seems resilient.
The question of whether to bring this camping or backpacking is moot--you need a large stove (i.e. two burners, a Coleman stove or similar) to make use of a griddle anyway. A griidle isn't much good if you're using a backpacking stove. So, if you're bringing the appropriate stove, the griddle adds relatively little weight and takes up almost no additional space. Great for winter trips, canoe trips, short treks to backcountry basecamps, etc.
One thing I would warn against though, I wouldn't try using this to make soup.
Great griddle for camping
We use this in conjunction with the Coleman PerfectFlow 2-Burner Stove. Perfect griddle for morning pancakes and bacon. Cooks evenly and transfers heat very well. Has a groove around the edge to catch grease and spills. Great non-stick surface cleans quickly and easily. I wouldn't take it backpacking, but it is great for car camping or backyard BBQs.
Not the lightest, but...
I've used this while car camping and over bbq standing pits and it's worked swimmingly. Wouldn't take this camping bc of the weight. Grease melts off your meats and filters to the sides nicely. The nonstick surface is durable and feels really quality. This is also great for tailgating. Bon Appetit.
