I know this should probably be in a different section, but I want to reach as many people as I can.

Just wondering if anyone owns the newer Lodge Reversible Griddle.



I have been wanting one for a long time and am curious how it will perform on an electric stove across two burners.

Anyone?

I have an older similar model by Wagner. It works well using two burners on our electric stove.

I have one and I love it. 1 side of my cook top has linked burners so I get a nice even heat across the surface. I think it is probably the best piece of cookware I own it gets used at least once a day.

Good to hear so far.

I want to buy one but was wondering how it would perform smooth side up on my electric burners.

I'll pretend SoEzzy didn't post. Rolling Eyes Laughing

I have a similar model....but I use a gas stove.

Personally I don't get "griddle pans" I hate cleaning them. Smooth cast iron cleans up quick and easy but the grill side is a real PITA. For that reason I never use it.

I do however use my 14" lodge skillet all the time and would but it over the griddle pan any day.

Yeah, I really want it for the big smooth side. I don't even think I would use the "grill" side.

My wife picked up a ~12 inch "Wagner's 1891 Original Fat Free Fryer" griddle pan from a yard sale years ago (image is from the web).


After scouring and seasoning, it looked great and seemed to hold great promise for stove-top steak/chops/etc.

We used it a few times, but to get it hot enough to do meat justice, it smoked like you wouldn't believe: the meat just sits too far from the heat to cook anything quickly without it damned near glowing. Left great grill marks Rolling Eyes but that was all it had going for it.

Because of that extreme heat, holding any seasoning was a lost cause from the jump. Cleaning was thus such a major headache, that it sits in the kitchen cabinet buried under old, smooth CI pans that we actually enjoy using and that clean up so quickly they're like using fresh Silverstone.

Cheers!

Yes i do.
We use it when i am lazy and want to cook a steak. I also use the smooth side when family is here with to make breakfast. We have taken it camping and use it on the Coleman. It can take a while to get heated.

Beertooth, my concern is that the grill side against the burner may not transfer heat as well as a flame...or for that matter an electric burner on a flat side.

But I'm no expert in thermodynamics so I'm just guessing.

Yeah that is why I am reluctant to get one. I was thinking the same thing.

Hmm, I swear SoEzzy had the same opinion up the thread a bit. Shocked

Must be that magic wand of his at work again. Very Happy

I'm against any kitchen clutter, and if your only using the flat side, use a couple cast iron pans that you already own. Wink
