This oblong press is perfect for grilled ham and cheese sandwiches cooked on a stove top griddle. It fits on two sandwiches at the same time and acts like a panini press without the expense of the panini grill.
As with all Lodge products, this one does what it is intended to do and much more. The weight and size are good and if you need a larger press then get the round one. The only fault I find is that the screws to attach the handle go all the way through the press which results in food/grease getting caught and accumulating unless you disassemble periodically. Otherwise, great product.
The Grill Press came with some simple assembly required. I'm a little concerned about the steel screws' ability to last, but if they should deteriorate, it wouldn't be very difficult to replace them. My only real problem with the Press is that it is too small to cover a strip of bacon. I have to cut the strips in half, but then the Press covers only three of the half strips. I'll probably purchase another unit, and use them in tandem. The wire handle does stay cool for quite a while, but will get quite warm after a while, though not so hot that it can't be used. Overall, I like the Grill Press and plan on getting another.
Very useful and is nicely constructed Great press as you would expect with cast iron! I like the handle.American made too.
It's kind of hard to review a flat piece of iron with a handle on it. It does what it is designed to do very well and looks pretty good doing it. Other than that, what can I say? Lodge products are always dependable and durable. What can go wrong with iron? I use this press mostly for hot sandwiches and cuts of meat. Haven't used it on bacon yet, but I can't imagine it not doing it's job. It does look pretty cool, resting on a 2x8 block of wood next to the range top.
Great bacon press. A good value when I purchased it. I really like the coiled metal handle and flat surface without the pig picture as some presses have. I had another press with a wooden handle and they don't work well in a grill. This is one is perfect.
HOLDS BACON FLAT AND IS HEAVY ENOUGH THAT MY KIDS WILL BE ABLE TO USE IT LONG AFTER I'M GONE. I ALSO GOT THE ROUND ONE. BEST PRICE FOR LODGE ANYWHERE.
it works pretty good but sometimes the bacon sticks to it. so I sprayed it with a non stick cooking spray.
Its a little smaller than you think you can only cover one hamburger at a time on a grill, which is where I use it. While it is well made the handle is metal and gets very hot during use so you must use something to grab it.
Keeps bacon and steaks flat, no curling.
Everyone knows Lodge makes the best cast iron products out there. But Wal-Mart has the best prices, BY FAR. This grill press, or bacon press as I call it, runs $30 everywhere else. Wal-Mart does it again!
amazing! I don't know how I ever lived with out it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I liked this hamburger press so much, I bought two of them. One for me and one for my mom. It is just the right size and weight. You can use it in many ways for all kinds of meats to hold them flat when frying. I use mine to keep large hamburger steaks browning perfectly. It keeps them flat with no puffing up or edge curl. Great product.
This is a multi-use tool. I wish it was a little bigger but I just bought another so my problem is solved. It also looks great in the kitchen. Great conversation piece.
It took us a while to find a cast iron grill press with a smooth underside. Most seem to have grooves or some sort of pattern cut into them.
This works great and came pre-seasoned. It's easy to clean, and a compact size and shape easy to store.
Purchase thru Walmart.com using "ship to store" was free, quick, and easy to pick up in the store during our next visit.
ahhhh another peice of cast iron...great purchase!!! keep lubed after use and will last a lifetime!!!
The Lodge bacon press that I purchased online is a fantastic addition to my cast iron cooking collection. It is priced almost 1/3 of what it would cost buying directly from Lodge or any high end camping store. Shipping to the store was free and picking it up was a breeze.
I've used it as a sandwich press, as well as a bacon press. The handle keeps your hands from getting burned.
The remaining cast iron pieces that I'm planning to buy will be done online, if available - if not I'll buy them at my local Walmart.
Got this primarily to make panini sandwiches, does the trick just fine
Love it, looks great also.
Solidly made and works well, but be aware that the handle has to be attached to the bottom plate by the customer. Lodge provides all necessary hardware and it is fairly simple to do, but the photo on Wal-Mart web site shows the assembled product, not the parts they send you to put together.
