Amazon Basics Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Griddle

Amazon chose to enter the fray by delivering this elongated reversible griddle-to-grill combo. Compared to similar lightweight models, this one weighs slightly more than 11 pounds, making it somewhat heavier than average.

The pre-seasoned cast iron plate can be used as a flat surface for liquid foods such as eggs or as a grill for meats, burgers, and vegetables.

The built-in handles are part of the griddle and are thin to cool down more quickly. A full breakfast for two to four people can be cooked at once, thanks to the 208 square-inch heating surface area.

You can use this plate in the oven, as the material can withstand temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. On the stovetop, the plate occupies two slots.

Cooking cast iron allows for even heat distribution and retention; pre-seasoned products do not have a nonstick coating and should only be washed by hand.

Moving or removing cast iron cookware from the stove or oven should be done with the aid of heat-resistant pads, oven mitts, or potholders.

This is a standard, everyday cast iron grill, and griddle. This can be used with gas, an electric, or an open flame. Worth the price – heats evenly (if you know anything about working with cast iron, you learn to let it heat up for a few minutes before using it on low or medium heat), retains heat well.

The seasoning works well enough, especially when a small amount of oil or butter is added right before cooking. Don’t let other people’s negative comments or low ratings fool you; this pan is fantastic for the job it’s designed for.
