This is a great press. The wooden handle is a must have. This product is used daily and we have been using it for several months.

I plan on using this very often as it holds up very well. It is just the right weight as to not flatten the menu item.
Christopher C. from Just Eat This Catering Posted on 03/10/2015
I like these weights, but do listen to the direction of hand wash only. The wood handle will not survive the dishwasher for much more than 1 year.

I bought this steak weight to use in my food trailer. I use it to speed up cooking on burgers, chicken and bacon when needed. This weight has held up well through the season. The 8x4 size is perfect for my needs. I was worried about the wood handle initially but turns out it has held up. I recommend this product.

We have had this weight for a while now. Its great for getting a good crust on steaks of cooking down veggies fast. I will use this more ;)
William P. Posted on 11/18/2014
i used this item for my steak sandwiches, because i used this item to press down the meat into the juices to make my meat taste.

Incredibly heavy cast iron steak weight. Works beautifully for getting nice grill marks on steak. I use mine mostly to keep my bacon flat when frying it. As with most cast iron you have to make sure to dry it properly and keep it seasoned. The wooden handle is a nice touch, and allows you to handle the weight without burning your hands. Very impressive product & made very well.

When you need that burger to cook a little bit faster this is the right size weight, not too heavy just right. This works excellent when cooking bacon too. The price is just right, cheap!
Richard G. from Green Zone B & G Posted on 06/09/2014
Very inexpensive and good weight. I have used it for boneless chicken breasts to make sure they have a good sear. Also works for pork chops, ans bacon.
Miia K. Posted on 05/02/2014
Great weight for the flat top. I use it mostly on bacon and melts. Makes everything crispy from the pressure and continues to cook the top slowly due to retaining the heat.
Patrick W. from Genesee River Restaurant Posted on 04/10/2014
very good item for the grill, and its actually heavy not light as i though, its good to place it in top of bacon when cooking it.
Elias A. from ERA Posted on 04/02/2014
These weights are great for making Panini sandwiches on the grill. They are the right weight for not squishing all of the ingredients out of the sides.
Kathleen J. from The Pod Posted on 08/02/2013
Wow. And I mean wow. I haven't stopped cooking bacon since I bought this. I do not sleep, I just cook bacon. I have burnt myself at least 30 times so far, but each delicious bite was worth every burn. And at this price?!?! Wow

We use the 8" x 4" Cast Iron Steak Weight all day every day. We use it for steaks and as a bacon press for the crispy bacon eaters.
Michael B. from cruisincafe Posted on 04/10/2013
This steak weight is ideal for us. The price is right, as we're used to with Webstaurant. It won't last forever, but not too expensive to replace as needed.
Marolyn J. from Fast Times Posted on 03/26/2013
The 8' x 4' cast Iron Steak Wight is great. We use ours daily.It hels to cook meats faster, and keeps bacon from curling. The wood handle dose not get hot. The price is great to.
Angela H. Posted on 03/14/2013
An excellent choice for cooking those medium well and well done steaks. Weight is heavy enough to do the job, yet not too heavy that it smashes the product.
Julie P. from Barbecue Blast Inc. Posted on 11/24/2012

These are great. I worked at a diner and we used these for hash, steaks, and just about anything else. Really toughly build. I've seen these fall to the floor and be totally fine.

Perfect size to crisp up bacon and corned beef hash. Also puts a nice sear on burgers or grilled chicken. Not to large or to heavy

We started selling steaks in our bbq restaurant and this steak weight was exactly what we need, we also use on our burgers and hamburger steaks.

This item was used in my new concession stand this weekend. It worked great to get the job done for breakfast menu.Also helped with speeding up our lunch rush.
James Y. from j-gees concessions Posted on 08/17/2010
The last thing your customer wants is a curled steak. It can be the best tasting steak in the world, but if it's all curled up like a dogs chew toy, it is not going to present well on the plate. A very inexpensive tool no steak kitchen should be without.
Wesley O. from morton pub Posted on 07/16/2010
