Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill Griddle REVIEW
Back in 1896, when the Lodge cast iron foundry began, they focused on one product line: 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 wood stoves to either grill or cook large cowboy-style breakfasts. Now you, too, can feed a crowd by using this modern version.
Who Is This For?
For entertaining or to make enough food for feeding your 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. This grill/griddle would be ideal for indoor sports fans or to take to tailgating parties. It brings all the fun of grilling right into your own kitchen.
Overview of Features
This Lodge Pro-Grid Cast Iron Grill and Griddle Combo. Reversible 20" x 10.44" Grill/Griddle Pan with Easy-Grip Handles is a single pan with double handles. While this pan comes pre-seasoned by the manufacturer, you are advised to do your own seasoning.
The first thing you’ll notice about this cast iron pan is its substantial size! It measures 20” long and 10.44” wide, which 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 or one that is not so heavy? Check out this smaller square grill with a helper handle. It has 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 for someone who wants a grill that isn't so heavy. Another option is a round griddle that we reviewed.
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. Since you can enjoy using this cast iron pan for many years to come, it’s worth it to properly care for your cookware, as it will reward you each and every time you use it.
