- Pick the right eggplant. Globe eggplants slice crossways into even slabs. Pick a firm, fresh eggplant with no soft spots. Uneven cooking.
- If some eggplant slices turned out to be taller than the others, you could remove the taller slices when they are cooked and give the shorter slices a little more time.
- Easy cleaning. Unplug grill to turn it off and let it cool in the open position. If you have a fixed-plate grill like I do, let the grill cool while you eat, then put a damp cloth or paper towels on the bottom grilling surface and close the slightly-warm grill. In a few minutes, you’ll be able to wipe the top and bottom grill surfaces clean. If the plates come off for cleaning, you can use this trick or pop them off and put them in the dishwasher.
