I'm too lazy to do all that work, but it does look nice. I have a couple of rubber door stops (the angle / wedge type) that I level the Coleman stove with. Just don't tell my wife where her door stops went!

Maybe this would do the trick for you if you're looking for something smaller. It's a Cusinart griddler. We got one from Amazon for about $80. Saw the same model in Costco on Sunday for $50. It folds flat so both panels make it into a griddle. Grill plates can be removed easy and they make a set of waffle plates for it sold seperately. We've used ours a couple times so far and it works like a charm for what we've done. Chicken breasts and panini sandwiches.

X2 plus that looks like a surface that is easy to clean too. Keeping the heat off of the counter tops in the RV is an added BONUS!

Just curious from your avatar if your an Air Traffic Controller. I was one in the Army for about 3 of the 20 I served. Same rules, different aircraft.

Several for Android.

Here is an idea

Make two circular pieces of lumber, Use 1x or 2x make them bigger around than the corner to corner on the griddle.

Now, you need to run 'em through a power planer with a slant, so that you end up with like 1/8 inch at one edge and the full 3/4 inch (One inch lumber is only 3/4 inch thick) at the other,

Run a bolt down the center, (recessed head and nut)

Now fire up Water Level app on your smart phone, lay it on the table, turn till the bubble is centered and .. Well ideally you would "lock it down" but that would reruire some kidn of clamping device.

No matter the angle, If it is within the range (nearly 1.5 inches) of that turntable, it will level it.

Oh, put 3 feet (at least) on the bottome board (I'd use six) You may need to shim those though.

The syrup always ran off my pancakes - which is why we eat waffles. Maybe it was a leveling issue.

I just level the plate with the pancakes on it. Much easier, but you have a point, waffles are good and run proof.



To the OP, just kidding around a little, your grill leveler is a good looking piece of work, and a good idea.
