So a plancha grill is the same as a griddle? Or is there a difference that I’m not seeing?

I,m no experts ,but a Plancha should get hot enough to put pots/frypans on
In a commercial kitchen scenario.
Thats what I assume about them
Blackstone on steriods

Nope a plancha is just a flat top grill, just like a blackstone. I posted a picture above. Yiu have to remember Iím in the UK not America and we may name things differently to you.

Flat tops are very versatile and can turn out a lot of food

Plancha is a flattop here, but I've only seen the name used in reference to restaurant equipment, so table-sized.
Blackstone is the big name in the portable type griddle you have there. Plenty of threads on those here by that name.

I'm in the contemplation stages of a large outdoor kitchen. I am thinking for my outdoor flat top griddle, or plancha as you call them, I'm going to go with a restaurant grade unit. The Blackstone's, camp chefs and what you show above are great for 3-5 years max. After that they are pretty wore out. I want something that will still perform and look great after 10 years. Just something to consider, may not apply to what your doing.

check out Sam the Cooking guy's channel. He uses what seems to be a high quality outdoor Plancha and it seems to get the job done. Looks expensive though.
