New stove learning curve - the griddle

My kitchen mini-face lift is almost done, yippie. I am generally loving the new floors and new appliances, but I'm having some technical difficulties with the griddle insert thing for my new 5 burner stove.

I washed the thing up, switched it in instead of the regular burner grate, lubed it up well, and proceeded to watch all my pancakes stick or under cook and GAAAAH! We wound up having blueberry pancake scramble. Is there a trick to using those types of griddles? It's not really cast iron, not really enameled, definitely not non-stick, and not dishwasher friendly. The temp was right cause the little drops of water acted correctly, so I know it wasnt that. Or do I just use my regular pan. . .
