Size and Appearance…
The griddles in the Cuisinart gr-150 vs gr-4n comparison are around the same size. The Cuisinart gr-150 measures 14.6 x 15.7 x 7.6 inches and the gr-4n measures 7.12 inches x 11.5 inches x 13.5 inches. That will take up a nice amount of space.
If you plan on just using once or twice a week, then you can just store it in a cabinet. If you plan on using it a lot (4 or more times per week), then you will probably want to leave it on your countertop. You won’t be embarrassed to have either griddle sitting on your countertop.
Both are brushed stainless steel and should match your décor. With the Cuisinart gr-4n, you can choose to have black or red dials.
The performance for both these griddles will be similar. However, the gr-150 will perform a bit better. For instance, the gr-150 has about 1800-watts of power which translates to a maximum temperature of 500 degrees. On the other hand, the 1500-watts of power for the Cuisinart gr-4n will give you a max temp of 450 degrees.
You can sear with either machine, but the Cuisinart gr-150 has a “sear blast” feature which can hit that maximum 500-degree temperature for two minutes.
The surface area for both machines is over 200 square inches. The gr-150 has more cooking surface with 240 square inches. This means that you can cook up to six burgers or twelve pancakes at one time. Perfect if you have a large family or entertain often.
Griddles are probably one of the easy to use small kitchen appliances you can buy. You simply put on the desired plate(s), and turn the dial. The cover floats to accommodate the height of any sandwich, steak, burger, etc. The plates are dishwasher safe. They both come with scrapers, and integrated drip trays that easily detach and are also dishwasher safe.

Many Grilling Options…
I’m a huge fan of stuff that does more than one thing (a good example of this is the multi-functional instant pot ip-duo60, it does a lot). It’s one of the most important qualities that I check for before making purchase decisions. Multi-functional devices save you space and money.
Both grills in this comparison are capable of performing multiple functions. The gr-150 is a 5-in-1 machine, while the gr-4n is a 6-in-1 machine.
The Cuisinart gr-150 works as a contact grill, panini press, full griddle, full grill, half grill, half griddle, and top melt. On the other hand, the Cuisinart gr-4n can function as a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle and half grill/half griddle.
With the Cuisinart gr4n you can also purchase waffle plates separately, but after checking around, it doesn’t appear to be an option for the gr150.
Both come with a 3-year limited warranty.
