Customer questions about this product

Does this cast iron pan weigh more than other similar sized pans?
Yes, this cast iron pan is heavier than other similar sized cast iron pans due to the additional material used to make the impressions.
How can I properly care for cast iron surfaces?
In order to prevent unwanted build-up of oils, grease, and food, surfaces should be cleaned after use while still slightly warm. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used—only hot water and a cloth or sponge are needed. If some areas require extra cleaning, a mild scouring pad can be used. Please refer to our Pan Seasoning Guide for further information on properly cleaning and seasoning cast iron surfaces.
My griddle isn’t heating evenly – is something wrong?
Just like electric or gas griddles, portable griddles are subject to hot and cold spots, depending on the location of the burners underneath the cooking surface. Areas that are between burners will not get as hot as areas that are directly over burners. The griddle material can also affect the consistency of the surface temperature, as different metals heat at different rates.

Customer Reviews


This is a very useful tool. I like the fact that it is reversible, I get more use out of it. It is heavy, because it is cast iron. But it works well and cooks foods quickly.

Ahmad from Muscle Maker Grill on 01/16/2022

Love this grill. We have made some very nice steaks on this grilled for meeting and board meeting. Love that its portable and can be stored easily.

Sarah H. from Rapid City Club For Boys on 08/04/2019

This cast-iron Grill was built well it’s very strong and is going to last a very long time we use it for grilled chicken and grilled shrimp

Ciro D. from Dinardis Pizza&Pasta on 05/22/2018

We absolutly love this product because we love our turkey bacon in the morning and this makes it easy for us to go in and drop our bacon right on top. Awesome product!!

Ashley A. from Wonderland Montessori Academy on 07/20/2017

This grill/griddle is just about perfect! The griddle side is very smooth, not filled with the uneven bumpy surface found on most new cast iron. The whole pan completely covers 2 burners on my cooktop! And doesn't hang over, lines up perfectly. And the surface area is huge, and the overflow grease channel on the side is big enough to function properly but not so big that it takes up too much of the area. I also found that heating it up for a good 5 minutes ends the problem of hot spots and ensures even cooking. I haven't tried the grilling side yet as I usually use my outdoor grill, even in winter, but at least I can say that it heats evenly.

Catherine K. on 02/11/2017

We actually use this as an add a shelf over our grill and it functions as a hot plate keeping sauce warmed but not overly hot. Druing prep time, its a good surface for giving things a hit of color.

Dean G. from It Takes Two LLC T/A Dino's Grotto on 03/27/2016

These are nice heavy sturdy griddles that fit our larger commercial range tops. They conduct heat very well, cook evenly, and should hold up for many years to come!! We would highly recommend them.

Rachael W. from Pearlstone Center on 11/13/2015

The Grilled Cheese has come to life with this griddle. Crispy & even cooking. Fits over 2 gas burners. I love the reversible option!! Note: Do not use on flat ranges as you can imagine because all cast iron will scratch smooth-top stoves. Just sayin'.

Sarah B. from Here, There And Everywhere Cafe on 10/11/2014

Wow! when I ordered this Grill I never expected it be be so solid and versatile. Fits great over to stove top burners. and with the ability to change from flat-top to regular grill I can make anything from pancakes to steak

Sal D. from Fragrances On The Run on 04/04/2014
