griddle-- stovetop or electric?

Procrastibaker | May 11, 201006:58 AM     5

Hello all. My very sweet husband got me a griddle for Mother's Day. I've wanted one for a while, mostly for making pancakes. I had initially thought of getting the type that plugs in. But he went to restaurant supply store and the guy there recommended a version that fits over two burners. I see two potential problems here: first, half your stove is used up. Second, I fear it might not heat very evenly (that said, electric griddles can have hot spots too). On the plus side, the stovetop version, being flat, would be easier to clean and store. So what do you all recommend? I'm really on the fence here. And what do you use your griddle for?
