There’s a reason why every restaurant and professional chef worth a lick uses cast-iron cookware.
Here are some of the benefits of a good piece of cast-iron cookware:
This product in particular, the Lodge Cast-Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle, is an incredibly useful piece.
As you can see, one side is a grill, which is great for cooking meat. Not only does it let the fats run off, raising the meat helps with browning by preventing escaping liquids from contacting the meat. It also makes pretty grill marks!
Flip it over and it’s a flat-surfaced griddle, which is great for breakfast cooking in particular, such as eggs, bacon, sausages, and pancakes.
I’m also a fan of Lodge because they use high-quality iron (you know low-quality iron by its uneven heating–certain spots get hotter than others), and they sell everything at reasonable prices.
