What We Don't Like
Passionate home cooks and food lovers prefer cooking in cast iron to almost any other material, because it’s durable, heats evenly, and provides that delicious flavor.

Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill Griddle REVIEW
Back in 1896, the Lodge cast iron foundry began, and they focused on one amazing product: cast iron cookware. This long and reversible grill/griddle pan is very similar to some antiques that are over 100 years old! Those were used on woodstove ranges to either grill or cook up large cowboy-style breakfasts. Now you, too, can feed a crowd by using this modern version.
Who Is This For?
For entertaining or just to make enough food for feeding a large family, the Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle is the ideal cookware. It covers two stovetop burners, so it’s best for larger kitchens and grill lovers alike. This grill/griddle would be ideal for indoor sports fans or to take when tailgating. It brings all the fun of grilling right into your own kitchen. It’s large and heavy, so not suited for cooks who would struggle with the weight and size. You’d be better off choosing a smaller grill pan.
When you first receive your Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle, you’ll get the single pan with double handles. While this pan comes pre-seasoned by the manufacturer, you are advised to do your own seasoning. It comes with instructions, and a general guideline is also provided below.
This pan does not come with a lid, any type of handle covers, or grill scraping tools. You are advised to get the specific accessories to properly care for this pan.
Overview of Features
The first thing you’ll notice about this cast iron pan is its substantial size! It measures 20” long and 10.44” wide, so provides over 200 square inches of cooking space on each side. There’s a flat, smooth griddle pan on one side with very short sides, and a completely ribbed grill side on the other. It has 23 grill marks for grilling multiple steaks, chicken, vegetables, and fish.
This is a heavy, durable piece of cookware, built to last more than one generation. It weighs 16 pounds. Cast iron is magnetic, so you can use this with induction cooktops. It’s good for electric and gas stoves, and don’t forget to take it out to the grill or to the campsite, too. This fits over two stovetop burners, but is not recommended for some glass top stoves. Check with the manufacturer before purchase if you’re unsure.
How to Get The Most Out Of It
Cast iron will last for more than one generation if it’s kept in excellent condition and used with care. Although this Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill Griddle comes pre-seasoned, to ensure its best use and help it become more non-stick, you are advised to season it before cooking for the first time.
Need a grill but in a smaller size? Then check out the Lodge 10.5” Square Grill Pan, with its twelve raised grill ribs, squared-off corners, and deep sides. You still get plenty of grilling area, but in a smaller pan that’s better for either smaller kitchens or less frequent grill use.
With over 400 square inches of cooking space, there’s not much you can’t cook on this large and substantial Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle Pan. You can feed a crowd and enjoy using this cast iron for many years to come. It’s worth it to properly care for your cookware, since it will reward you each and every time you use it.
