I've been using it almost every day for the past month, sometimes both sides in a day. I'm still getting used to how much oil to add and so far using less and less. Generally I use canola oil as it seems to tolerate a higher temp than olive oil. Warming it slowly--a few minutes at low-medium heat seems to work--and then bringing the temp up and letting it go for another couple of minutes has been giving me good results. I really like being able to sear meat and have the fat drip away (with the lined side.) So far I've done eggs, beef, lamb, vegetables, french toast, burgers, hot dogs, and fish--all with excellent results. It's hard to resist the impulse to clean with soap, but just scrubbing off with a rough cloth works fine. It's heavy so needs some care to move around the sink and some muscle to scrub--nothing outrageous.
This is my first grill/griddle and I am loving it. I have cooked steaks and burgers on it. My food turns out beautifully. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to buy a grill/griddle. It is definitely worth the money. I did a lot of research before making my purchase because I have an electric stove and wanted to be sure I purchased the right grill/griddle to use. I am glad I chose to purchase this brand. It works very well on my electric stove. The reviews helped me a lot and hopefully my review will help someone else in the market to purchase this type of product. I used it over 2 small burners and then over a small and large burner. It works well on either side, but is better on the large and small burner as long as you control the temperature.
You cannot beat Lodge cast iron, and the newer pre-seasoned ones even make them better, they are great at being non-stick without the chemical coatings. Lodge will last forever, you can hand them down to your kids and grandkids, and they are AMERICAN !
I bought a new range and it has cast iron continuous grates and an oval shaped burner in the middle. The Lodge grill/griddle that I bought fits right on the middle grate as though it were made for the range. I have used both sides and it has worked great. I love that it came "pre-seasoned". It is very heavy, though. This was the first time that I shopped on line and went to the store to pick it up. That was great, too.
A lot more manageable than the 16 pound one and very little surface area difference...the design allows for more cooking room because the little handles are in either corner, not along each end. Learn how to use it before hand. Allow to heat up but don't keep it on high and use extra grease until you learn what sticks and what doesn't. Food is cooking quickly on the underside so a lower heat will avoid burning and ruining the seasoning.
Every once in awhile you come across a plroduct that really does excell one's expectations. This grill arrived just in time for a 6 day river trip and it turned out to be the best item going. Whether grilling steaks on one side to hash browns eggs and pancakes on the other we all were amazed at how the heat is even and the surface easy to work with. Several of the group said they were ordering one as well as soon as we returned. Super grill. Thx.
I did my research before ordering it. Walmart had the cheapest price. It is heavy, but will last me a lifetime. Great for grilling sandwiches, cooking pancakes, sausages and bacon! I love that it has a reversible side for grilling fish and meat. I just wash it with soapy water, rinse, and wipe some olive oil into it to keep it seasoned for the next time. The company has been around since the late 1800's. I think it's a fantastic product and highly recommend it!
This is the perfect item I needed to add to my camping equipment. I haven't tried it yet at a camp site over an open wood fire. But works great using gas burners. Just have to be patient to heat up. However, the manufacturer should enclose a booklet that shows the different ways to utilize this product and proper care and things to avoid. Most griddle/skillets also have a modest "Cookbook" like the Lodge Camp Dutch Oven has included. I really recommend this item as top notch.
It is great (and stable on the stove top). I ordered it ship-to-store on a recent visit to the States- I wasn't sure it would work on an induction stove-top, but my it is great - fits perfectly on two burners and does everything as I had hoped. Took up a whack of my luggage allowance but it is worth every bit of it. No regrets, only praise.
I researched a few of these stovetop griddles and It seems this one is the only one that didnt have complaints about sticking. I like that it is cast iron because it heats up evenly. Burgers come out great and i can scrub away without worrying about peeling any coating or anything. I do use soap when i need to, but i leave a thin coat of oil on
the grill when i put it away
Over the years I have been using the electric griddle but thought I would try this. First thing that I was glad for is that it fitted my stove top perfectly.I have been making sure to follow the care instructions such as not using any soap instead use hot water and a proper brush. Also to make sure to dry properly and oil after each use. Well it has been working very well don't have any complaints
This would be perfect if it had a grease trap. I made burgers on it and the grease spilled all over the stove.
I made hamburgers and the patties were so moist. Also, the buns grilled to perfection. Would recommend this to anyone, and already have. Be sure you do the 'oil seasoning' for the first three uses as recommended. It's great!
After the purchase of a new Gas Range, I wanted the Griddle for the center burner. Thier version would have cost $170.00, Plus S/H an Tax. This version fit right in place and has two options to cook with and only 1/3 the cost or less. In addition, I didn't have to wait 6-8 weeks for their version to come from a foregin manafacture, Wal-Marts' version was made over in TN and here in less time tan stated on the order form. Best deal over all. The only differance was the color match between my units and the one from Lodge.
With rims on both sides, it means the middle area does not contact the stove. Fine if you have a gas stove, but with a ceramic cooktop, the stove does not touch the pan. Also ridiculously hard to clean.
Food sticks even though it was seasoned when I got it and I seasoned it again. Very hard to clean. Probably won't use it again.
I love this griddle/grill. It is very durable and great to use. I'm planning on buying a second since I have a big family. That way I can cook twice as many.
This item is EXTREMELY difficult to clean due to the angle of the grooves, as well as how close together they are. Every time I made grilled burgers or chicken, small bits of the meat would get down in there and solidify. This happens with all stove grills, but note that most grills have enough space for you to get into the grooves and clean efficiently--this one doesn't. It would take me 45 minutes with a scrub brush and just water (you never want to use detergent on cast iron) to try to get it clean--then I'd invariably have to use steel wool every single time to try to get the rest of what was baked down into the tiniest grooves out. There was still gunk in there whenever I was done--no matter how minimal (because the grooves are too small!!!) and I tried to get in there with a towel to get the water out and thought I had gotten all of it. Two months after I bought it I noticed it was rusting on the grill side with the grooves. Had to just throw it away. IMO this is not worth the money--splurge a little and get a grill with straight grooves, that are wider and easier to clean between.
I've done bacon, french toast, pancakes and tortillas… It's great, even heating and super easy to wipe off and clean without scrubbing at all.
This griddle is great. I use it on the gas barbeque, since I have a smooth-top stove I can't use it on. It's not very large, but it's big enough for the two of us, and I could squeeze on a couple more burgers or steaks if I need to. Best of all, I can bring it inside to wash it, no more scrubbing the grill grates on the patio.
