how would you use one of these, never seen them before, do you just use it like a frying pan?

This is a grill pan, ie for the grill. I have a griddle pan for the hob and its much better for cooking on I find. It allows the fat to go away from the food and seems to cook more even as well. Especially good for steaks, chicken breasts, bacon, etc.:thumbsup:

States in the description "Suitable for all hobs except induction" so this is not for the grill it's for the hob.

Similar, if not the same as this one:-

Which can also be used on a BBQ.

HUH? :thinking:

Not in this Universe!

The precise difference being what exactly?
Perhaps it's BOTH, or neither?

Traditionally a griddle is flat, (metal, perhaps stone even) and a grill is ridged, (it's in the name!) but either way round, both are for using directly ON a heat source. As it happens, this one is double sided, and for use directly on the heat source, so at the very least it is BOTH. Interestingly it has a recess on the GRILL side, for collecting the drippings too! (Not sure about the other side)

BOTH are good for cooking meats (and a lot of other things too), one gives lines, the other doesn't, having more contact with the surface so cooks a little faster, & chars more.

A grill PAN implies no more than it has a handle, and perhaps pan shaped - but this has areas to hold too (handles?) so you could say that it is a grill pan too!

A grill pan in more modern parlance is simply a pan for collecting drippings under a modern cooker radiant type grill (which is possibly why in the US they call them BROILERS to save confusion!) & is something else entirely, but with the same name, and this definitely isn't one of those!

The real benefit of this one is, for the price it's fairly large so will fit over TWO burners or rings on the cooker, so ideal for cooking big amounts, or where part can be hotter than the other.

For smaller ones, I posted some very cheap alternatives yesterday in this thread:

#9
Wo! Wo! Alright people! Only need to rectify my misunderstanding!
Chill out Winston!
#10
reviews on site not great .why
#11
Got the fry pan version and been using for ages and easy to clean.

I only cook steak and chicken on mine,

Good find
#12
Goods for gas bbq? I can't see why not :-)
#13
How heavy is this? Looks a bit light to me as it says its only 2cm thick. Large surface area though and cheap.
#14
can this be used on a normal gas hob?
#15
Saw one of these in Tesco tonight - glad I didn't buy it then.

Thanks Spicy_gal - have some H&R

Anyone complaining a cast iron grill is heavy needs an urgent examination imho.
#21
Just get a Geore Forman grill.
#22
Hard to clean and sticks.... No they are not using it right.

You need to oil the steak or chicken or whatever before you cook it...... NOT THE PAN.

And I dont have any sticking... Its like tefal, but black burnt stripes everytime.

BUY IT!!! I am glad I did, steaks taste so much nicer. ;-)

Yeah but yeah but yeah but yeah but...

Although it says reversible it doesn't show a smooth side. I'd have got one for pancakes.

Been after one of these, cheers

Yes.

EDIT: Whoops didn't see second page.

Also you can just get it nice and hot and nothing will stick: no need for any oil at all. This works particularly well for steaks where you want to sear the meat, but I wouldn't advise it for chicken. I like this method as it means you get the unadulterated taste of the meat with no oil.

Doh - I'd assumed reversible meant it would have a flat side (already have a ridged pan).

LOL - indeed!

These are great for meat as some have said. i would probably only do thin chicken on it or finish off the chicken to make sure its cooked through

Also great for things like seared tuna steak

Good price
#33
Can these be used on ceramic hobs?

Yes quite probably, I can't pick one up with my left hand as I have carpal tunnel syndrome, and probably half the population over 70 would have problems with one.

Yes, it's hilarious being crippled with arthritis or any number of conditions.

Hope you can still laugh it off when it happens to you.
#36
Nihcaj, nobody was laughing at arthritis or at RSI; just at foolish people complaining about the fundamental properties of cookware.

You see, the entire point of a cast iron grill pan is that it is heavy: the heavier it is, the more heat it stores and the hotter you can get it to sear meat. Non-stick pans can't be heated this much as it damages the coating. Also heavy pans are supposed to cook more evenly.

I agree... I use cast iron too, but it's not funny to warn people of it's weight, it is a valid comment from those users as a sizeable proportion of the population just can't use them at all.

In the case of this item, it is more significant as it is larger than the usual single pan sized grill pan/griddle. Anyone who isn't used to it, (and some have commented they don't even know what one is, so clearly they are NOT used to cast iron) and has only used an aluminium grill pan will be very surprised, and may simply be unable to pick it up.

As usual on here though, self... self.... self is the order of the day, and people belittle someone or something just because it doesn't apply to THEM.

Been after one for a while, ordered now

Just picked mine up, and yes it is heavy, but when I got it home there was two in the box:thumbsup: Documents on box say paying for one but box says contents 2. :w00t:

Are both sides ridged, or is there 1 ridged and 1 smooth side? Thanks.
