    This is a must on a plancha or griddle! We use it not just for bacon, but for sandwiches that we want to press down and even some vegetables too

    Nice cast iron steak wait. Perfect for steaks or burgers. Like heavier and stronger than I actually thought it would be so that's a plus. Very well constructed and should last a great long time no problems here

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    I had anticipated a heavier duty weight since it is called a cast iron steak weight, but it is more like a light weight bacon press. It will work for what we need it for, but it is a little lighter than I had anticipated.

    This is a nice simple weight. Not too heave where it squishes you food but also light enough that you can lift with tongs. Easy to clean material

    I love this iron weight! I use it not only for meats, but for making grilled sandwiches, too. Helps get a good crust or char evenly on each side. Not so heavy that it flattens bread.

    well built and heavy duty handles too. a bit heavy for sausage patties but good for bacon. would definitely buy more when I need them

    from great lakes grinders Posted on

    My husband uses this every day all day. We put out over 500 burger patties a week in a tiny roadside cafe and this is used on the burgers with every patty. We also use this when we cook bacon on the flat grill. It is heavy duty, greatly made, and holds up the heat of the grill very well. The wooden handle makes for a safe way to lift this up and move it. It is an asset to any restaurant.

    Very heavy and well made. This will last a very long time if taken care of. It is very heavy and does its job perfectly.

    An absolute must have for any cast iron grill pan. Perfect for cooking steaks but also for getting a nice sear onto veggies as well!

    We rally like this cast iron weight. We us this mostly for our grilled cheeses but I can also say that it works perfect with steak too! Great quality and price.

    from Tom Posted on

    I have always waned to own one of these. They can run upto 20 bucks at hardware stores. I came across this while browsing the website. At this price, I had to try it! It shortens the cooking time when cooking steaks in my cast iron pan. Decreased cook time seems to result in a delicious, juicy steak. The weight seems to be just heavy enough. The wood handle stays cold enough to still handle the press. Also works well with bacon, burgers, onions, mushrooms, etc. Love this product!

    Great! I really like this steak weight. It's heavy and seems to be well made. The wooden handle is nice to grab onto and is screwed in so if it ever becomes loose it can be tightened up.

    Not heavy enough. You get what you pay for. It may be ok for burger patty but kind of lightweight for steak. I would spend a little more next time and get a heavier one.

    from Curry Village Foods, Inc. Posted on

    This is an awesome product and a great value! I can purchase it from Webstaurant Store for less than half of the price of my national food service provider!

    from Opa! Restaurant Group Posted on

    Gets the job done perfectly! Makes our cook much happier. Reasonably priced and the quality is good, very impressed with the fast shipping from the company

    from Tailgater's Bar and Grille, LLC Posted on

    This is a great weight for getting nice crispy bacon. you can do up to 4 slices at a time perfect for our BLT and Club. The weight is quite durable strong and heavy!! The size also fits on our small griddle with ease.

    from Khaan Deli LLC Posted on

    Great weight for meat or whatever or mushrooms (we dont even sell meat) crazy i know but it still does what we need it to do

    from Gnome Cafe Posted on

    Purchased these to keep our bacon down on the flat top because no one likes shriveled up bacon. They should work perfectly since they seem to be a good size and pretty heavy.

    from Ellen Renees LLC Posted on

    This is a nice big heavy weight! It is great for cooking bacon, and keeping it flat. There is a nice wood handle on it, just wish it was a little more flush so it would not be so easy for water to get to screws.

    from Watershed Cafe Posted on

    Just love these weights. great for open face hot dogs, sausage or steaks. easy to keep clean and small enough to keep on the griddle to keep hot

    from Daniel C Tolner Posted on

    A pretty addition to the kitchen and functional too. The wooden handle stay cool while in use and the black cast iron cooks evenly without showing burn marks.

    from Meacham Hams Inc Posted on

    Great cast iron weight. The wooden handle is awesome because it does not heat up like the rest of the cast iron. Very useful on steaks and even burger patties.

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    These 8x4 cast iron steak weights were the first ones we bought and decided they really weren't big enough for our steaks, chops and burgers. They work great they are just on the smaller side, make sure you don't really want the 9x5's instead!

    Posted on

    Heavy duty steak weight. We use them to cover our burgers on the flat top grill. Handle doesn't get too hot to grab like some other ones. Solid piece, doesn't feel flimsy.

    from Fresco's Posted on

    Great cast iron weight, we bought it for bacon not steak but it serves the same purpose. Cleans up well and is very sturdy, should last a long time.

    from Tripps Primal Farm and Kafé Posted on

    I purchased 1 of these for my home and I will be back soon when I need them for my restaurant. Thank you WEBstaurant Store for the price of this item.

    from Todd's Kitchen Posted on

    Cast iron would imply its a heavy steak weight but it really isnt. The jury is still out in the kitchen as to whether or not it is heavy enough for steak and chicken on the broiler, but it's doubtful.

    from Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill and Irish Pub Posted on

    Made a mistake and ordered the light weight one earlier. This is perfect for cooking our bacon and our 1/2 pound burgers. Helps to make sure things are cooked evenly and through

    from Midway OH Boy Posted on

    Very nice quality, good weight, and good price. Had the handle go loose on one off them, but it was fixed with a new screw.

    Posted on

    Our cooks love this cast iron steak weight for use on the restaurant flat top grill. It works great on bacon and other meats. The wooden handle stays cool to the touch.

    Posted on

    This weight was constructed very well. It is very durable and easy to clean. Just the right amount of weight we needed and the wooden handle is ideal.

    from backwater Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from Just Eat This Catering Posted on

    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.

    from Union St Diner Posted on

    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.

    from Tin Brook Bed & Breakfast Posted on

    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 ;)

    Posted on

    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.

    from Zackey joe's Posted on

    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.

    cast iron bacon press. just wrap in foil for easy cleaning, well balanced and will stand the test of time. works well as described. heat resistant

    from Cafe Marty Posted on

    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!

    from Green Zone B & G Posted on

    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.

    Posted on

    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.

    from Genesee River Restaurant Posted on

    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.

    from ERA Posted on

    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.

    from The Pod Posted on

    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.

    from cruisincafe Posted on

    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.

    from Fast Times Posted on

    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.

    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.

    from Barbecue Blast Inc. Posted on

    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.

    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.

    from Golden Rule BBQ Posted on

    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.

    from j-gees concessions Posted on

    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.

    from morton pub Posted on

    It a healthy time people eat healthy food.excellent for using paninis,cuban sandwitches.it leaves a nice grille marks on bread or gourmet breads. a must have item for grilles.
