This grill pan is a wonderful addition to any kitchen or campsite. The deep ridges on the bottom of this heavy cast-iron skillet make it perfect for grilling steaks, chicken, hamburgers or even shrimp. The ridges help to sear the food while keeping it above the pan grease for lower fat cooking. Cast-iron creates superior heat retention, browning your meat evening while leaving them moist and delicious. This grill pan features a heavy-duty handle with a notch that allows for hanging, and two side lips for pouring off grease or liquids. While the pan comes pre-seasoned to keep food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with olive or vegetable oil. Wipe clean with water and a sponge, then apply oil before storing. This pan will last for generation. Made by Lodge.
