I had been coveting one of these Lodge Grills for quite awhile, when I finally received one as a gift a few months ago. I had pretty high expectations and for the most part, I haven’t been disappointed.
For those who aren’t familiar with these heavy duty cast iron grills, they don’t look like a convention grill pan per se - in that it doesn’t have a circular or square shape, and it doesn’t have a standard pan handle. It does have two carrying handles on both long ends of the grill. This is a rather heavy pan and you should definitely be careful handling it, especially when hot.
It is a double sided cast iron piece with grill bars on one side to mimic a BBQ grill and a flat surface on the other to turn it into something like a diner cooking surface. The grill is very large - 20 inches by 11 inches. It is actually meant to stand over TWO burners. There are no attachments to secure it to your burners - it just sits right on top. Since it’s double sided, I had some doubts about whether or not having fire directly on the reverse side would damage that finish - but so far I haven’t seen any thing out of the ordinary.
Above is a picture of the griddle side being used to grill up some thin steak and onions for some steak sandwiches.Continue reading "Lodge Logic Pro Cast-Iron Grill"
